Making Plans for the first time in nearly two years

In September I am going on a "staycation" with a friend and her mum. I haven't seen them in person since shortly before the pandemic hit. I am so excited. Tomorrow will mark two weeks since I got my second dose and I will be considered fully vaccinated. I can breathe a little easier now.

As a person with Cerebral Palsy, this pandemic has stolen my independence. The family didn't want me to go anywhere and I didn't want to either when my gram was alive. It has continued like this up until now. Public Transit is very unreliable because they cancel so many buses and the last thing I need is to get stuck somewhere.

There are things I really want to do for myself, without having to ask family-like, getting my hair cut, or going to buy new shoes. I dislike buying shoes online because it can be a hassle to send them back if they aren't the right fit or size. The same could be said for anything you buy online. Sadly you cannot get your hair cut online either. I am hoping that I can get my hair cut before I go on this weekend away with my friend and maybe get some new shoes.

No matter what, I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life and that I get more room to figure out who I want to be and how I want to live the rest of my life. My life was my grandma. She was my rock and the mother I needed when my own couldn't be. Now I have to learn to live my best life without her.

Bring it on.
