Also, zond7's landlady and the tenant of the house next door is going to give us access to the garage which she also owns, and my manager from work who is very awesome is going to give (loan?) me his dead mom in law's scooter. I hope it is the red one and that I can put flames on it. I would be able to go to the bookstore, coffee shop, library, grocery store, deli, all sorts of crap, even take A. to school. Crying with happiness! I don't think I would feel super confident getting on a bus with it as the range is probably not good, but we'll see how that looks and what buses go down cortland. I am not that ambitious with it. The corner store would be just FINE. A little independent movement....! that is all. I hope this works out. 3-5 months in walking boots + phys therapy. I can do this.
