What time alone?

Sooooo...I didn't have any time alone on Wednesday.  Kind of a bummer.  Well, actually, it wasn't a bummer.  At first, I was downright ticked.  Bud decided to stay home from Bible study.  He just wasn't in the mood.  And really, I'm just glad that at age 15 he has a desire to go to a Bible study with a group of adults that are all not only older than him, but older than his parents, too.  So, I kind of figured he'd spend the night in his room playing video games or something like that, but he wanted to watch TV with me.  Specifically, The Office.  Considering we haven't been getting along lately (he's a 15 year old boy. Enough said.), I should have jumped at the opportunity to spend some down time with him, just hanging out.  Did I?  Unfortunately, I did not.  I spent the majority of the evening stewing because "My night" had been ruined.  Wait a minute.  Ruined?  Let me rethink this.  Hmmm...My teenage son, who only last week was telling me how much he hates everything I do wanted to spend time with me?  And I resented him for it?  I think I have some apologizing to do...

I have recently come to love Wednesday nights.  My man is working, Bud is at bible study, and Ladybug is at Awana with a friend.  Do you know what that means?  Yup.  That's right.  I have the house to MYSELF!  I get to take a shower without being disturbed.  I then make myself a cup of tea and do one (or two) of three things.  I either

1. Read a book and enjoy the quiet solitude of the house
2. Watch a movie or TV show that nobody else in the family would want to see
3. Get out the needles and yarn and knit

Sometimes, when I'm feeling really crazy, I watch a movie and knit AT THE SAME TIME!

Tonight, I'm going to live on the edge and watch a movie and knit.  I'm working on a Mod Cables Hat designed by Jeanne at in a soft green.  The Help should be good entertainment.

I never thought in a million years that a few hours a week would be enough, but at this point in my life, I'll take what I can get!
