Yep. I went outside of my yard for the first time in over three weeks (other than in and out of doctors’ offices). I was so excited about it. It made me think I should write a children’s book series….Zuzu Goes on an Outing, Zuzu Goes Out to Dinner, Zuzu Takes a Walk, Zuzu Goes to Church, and much, much later, Zuzu Makes Dinner.
I called my mom and told her that I wanted to venture out, but wasn’t sure what to do. I mentioned grocery shopping for a few items, and she thought that sounded like a great idea.
She came to pick up me and my Magic 8 ball head (see previous post), and we were off to Dierberg’s. I had no idea how often I quickly turn my head. Holy cats! I realized early on, I was going to have to go at a much slower pace, or there was going to be a clean-up in Aisle 3.
I’m pleased to announce that $55 later (I set out for toilet paper, soda for Mark’s trip, and fish food. Huh. Came home with a little more. Not much, but more), I made it home at last.
I told my mom that I wish there was a t-shirt that said, “I just had surgery. That’s why I’m moving so slow.” She thought that was silly. She asked if I ever paid attention to how quickly people moved. I said I sure did, if they were in front of me. I usually yell at the top of my lungs, “Hey, Queen of the Snails! Let’s move it! I’m growing a beard back here!”
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank God for the gift of a beautiful, sunny morning that allowed me to enjoy my big outing!
