Here’s what happened when I ventured out

0

Like many people, I’ve spent the past 15 months of the pandemic cautiously staying home. We didn’t do outdoor dining or much of anything besides walk our dog and go to the grocery store. 

But on Sunday I widely expanded my world. Now that I’m fully vaccinated and my husband is days away from his two week mark, we are testing the waters of what we are comfortable doing. On Sunday I jumped in head first: I got a haircut, dined outside and got my nails done. I was scared, but I also can’t believe how much I desperately needed it. 

What I really needed was to be in the world. During my hair appointment I chatted with my stylist, with the owner of the salon, with other customers. When I left I almost cried because I didn’t realize how much I missed in-person socialization, even with strangers. Perhaps I missed it especially with strangers. We friended each other on Facebook before I left.
