I have but a very small window of alone time right now! My son has just gone to a dance; "no, mom you don't need to walk with us to the door." This sentence was quickly followed by a pleading look of, 'don't ask me to kiss you good-bye. PLEEEAASE!!' I didn't, but this kids growing up thing is harder than I expected. He went to his first dance last month and I basically avoided the whole thing by going out with The Red Hot Mama's!---More about them another day. (trust me, it's worth the wait!) So really, this, is the first dance for me, the mother!
My Friday evening mantra: "he'll be fine, he'll be fine, please let him be fine, he'll be fine, he'll be fine."
My daughter has her visit with her BFF extended for another hour or so and my husband is playing poker with some guys.
So I've got quiet time to let you know that it has been a good week. I got a 'good to go' from Princess Margaret Hospital for another 6 months. (I'm not going to dwell on this point, so keep going)
I took my daughter to see CATS this week at the Princess of Wales Theatre and it was a really great day. We took the Go Bus down to Toronto, rode the subway (this is a big deal!) and took the Go Train home. Another success for me! I got to the city --- and home again--- maintained my sanity; I even got some knitting done. Commuting does have some perks!
I finished reading Drunk, Divorced and Covered in Cat Hair last night, glanced over the patterns at the end of the book and...
started reading it all over again. And this was in the middle of the night using a flashlight! I really enjoyed the book and recommend it to...anyone, she's a funny young lady.
O.K. so that's about 15 minutes of my alone time devoted to blogging; my plan now is to make a cup of tea and work on my Mystery Stole (because nobody is here to interupt me). Yup, that's my plan.

Have I shared with you my two favourite wines in the world?

Yup, I'm planning on tea and knitting lace.

Or maybe, wine and stocking stitch.
It really doesn't take too much to keep me happy; stocking stitch is just fine, if there's wine. ;o)

Happy Friday Night Alone time! We all need it. I just finished a lovely glass of Pinot Grigio, and I might just have a second glass...

I haven't had time to comment much this week, but your post about looking out for number one is something we must all take to heart. Good for you for getting to Cookstown, and getting the help you needed. And GREAT news from Princess Margaret!!! Congratulations!
Enjoy your alone time. After 2 glasses of Pinot Grigio, I think I should stick to stocking stitch...but I feel so who knows what I'll get up to!!
Enough exclamation points for one evening. sys. (see you soon!)oops, there's another exclamation point. I can't help myself.

Hi hi! Sorry I haven't got around to commenting before but I have enjoyed reading your blog.

I love my Friday nights too. I'm not alone, hubby (Uncle R) is here but we each do our own thing.

After a couple of glasses of Sauvignon Blanc, I can't say I feel like doing any kind of stitching. Just laying back reflecting on life and listening to some music.

Good to hear things are going well for you. Keep up the good work - I like you blog.
