To the Americans among you, a belated Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone survived without singeing any eyebrows or setting anything that wasn't supposed to be on fire on fire.
I actually went out to a get-together with some friends. I didn't stay long -- I think I was home and in bed before the fireworks display finished -- but it was the first time I'd been out of the house for more than an hour or so since the surgery. It's nice, if a bit strange, to feel like I'm easing back into my life again.
