Oh well. I meant to post yesterday, but then we got home later than I anticipated, and then I made breakfast for dinner which took a lot longer than I thought it would, and then… well, I totally forgot.

But we had a nice day yesterday. Terri has so much more improvement this year over last year. Last year we were celebrating being able to go to downtown Oakland and walk around for an hour or two. Yesterday we drove all over Oakland and Berkeley, went to Target (impossible last year), went to CostCo (unthinkable last year) and sat at Point Isabel (the big beautiful dog park right on the bay) to watch doggies. All this after a long week of vacation fun. It’s pretty amazing. I am feeling so grateful for these improvements. It’s not much month to month, but when I look back over the past year, she’s definitely having more stamina and energy. Yay!!

Last night we got into a big giggle-fest. You know the kind where you can’t stop giggling? We were doing that in the kitchen at 10 pm. Uncontrollable fits of giggling. This girl is a keeper. What a cutie.

There are four more days of vacation left, including today. Terri is looking up live music events and seasonal festivals, to see if we’d like to go to any this weekend. It’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass over in the city, which we’d love to go to, but that would be pushing our luck just a bit too much. Too difficult to park, too much walking, too many people. But maybe next year. However, this year, perhaps something in Oakland, East Bay Symphony or a visit to an art gallery. Or a pumpkin-fest. We could manage that.

She still has bad days (really bad days) but the fact that we’ve gone out for at least three big long shopping-wandering-driving trips this week, plus a walk in the woods, is something pretty terrific. I’m feeling very hopeful and happy.

Being on vacation is awesome.
