I drove today! Its the first time I've been behind the wheel since re-learning last fall. Hand controls were challenging to get used to. Today, it FINALLY felt natural to push out to brake and pull down to accelerate. I feel the door opening to all sorts of activities, like grocery shopping, and maybe even attending a knitting group now and then. There is one that meets on Tuesdays at the library in downtown Ypsilanti but the distance from van parking in back, around the sidewalk and up a loooong ramp to to the front door is intimidating for now. I'll work up to it. In the meantime, I bet I can find a more easily accessed group somewhere! I don't want to drive in the main part of Ann Arbor yet, students have a habit of walking in front of cars and my braking isn't THAT good, but there is a group that meets once a month, often at Borders book store, meeting tomorrow. I want to drive more in daylight first though. At least until I get my new glasses.
