After 15 months of being unable to drive, my bride has finally returned to the roads.
She completed her driver retraining / physical therapy, her car has been upgraded to accomodate her physical challange, and she is out grociery shopping as I write this post. It will take some time before she is completely comfortable with her new driving skills but I'm confident that she'll be just fine. She learned how to handle the new equipment very quickly and passed the course for her addaptive equipment with only five one hour-lessons.
Now I have instituted a three step re-entry into my own state of normalcy.
Step 1...acquire first case of beer to be consumed since April 2010
Step 2...prepare said beer for consumption this evening
Step 3....well I really don't need to go into too much detail there. Suffice it to say that the first taste will be soooooooo nice.
Yeh, I opted not to drink at all until the bride could drive just to insure that there would be someone sober enough to drive if the need arose.
