Hurts So Good

So how's my day going? Fabulously scary. Terrorizingly amazing. Anxiety-producingly well.

That's me getting my first round of vaccinations. Two months till my next ones.

That's me in an elevator for the first time in about 20 months without a mask on. Pardon the prednisone Moon Face.

Don't get too psyched. Still lots of precautions. And still taking it all slowly. No movies, no restaurants after 5:30pm. No crowds. No big parties. Avoiding sick people. No gardening. No dust. Kind of the same as before, only without the mask and gloves.

Besides, it's going to take a while for me to develop trust between me and my new immune system. We're only just getting to know each other, and it's still not really where it should be. So some activities will be limited by medical issues. Others will be limited by my psychological ones. All in good time. Maybe I'll do one new thing a week, just to ease myself back into life safely.

The one thing I AM doing today is picking my daughter up at her preschool. And THAT is the only thing that matters to me, has mattered to me, and will matter to me from here on out. I'll catch your parties next year. The next few months will be all about getting back into my kid's life, so if I'm going to stretch myself for something it will be that.

Gotta go! Don't want to be late on my first day. :)

So happy for you (and Bambina). She will be so excited to have you pick her up. Do you get a tour of her cubby, or is this strictly a wait by the curb for her pickup?
