What can I say?  You’re driving.  America is all about freedom of the road, independence of the road, so the biggest milestone for me was being able to drive on my own.  And I actually was going to deny myself that milestone because I didn’t think I wanted the certain car that I’d bought, or that I had.  But at that point, when I finally got into it, it’s like ok, this is something I did when I was able-bodied, at least I’m doing that now.  That was the first milestone.  The second major milestone was getting work.  I was unemployed for 17 months, and being in the house—as you know earlier, I’m little bit of an edgy, fidgety, type A personality person—so with me being able to work, that was able to help me channel my energy to focus on other things too.  So those were the two major milestones so far.
