Okay so it’s actually apartment sitting – for my son while he’s gone up to the Yukon for work – but I’ve agreed to come over and check on his place, as well as taking up his offer of staying overnight to give me a break.
I’ve been out west now for over a year and the only time I’ve actually had away from my daughter and grandson was when they went to Ontario for Christmas – other than that, I’ve been at home every night with him. She’s had a chance to get out with friends and stay overnight at their places, but I’ve been at our place every night with my grandson.
Don’t get me wrong – I absolutely love spending all the time I have. Not a lot of grandparents get the opportunity to watch their grandchildren grow up before their eyes on a day to day basis. I love him so much and am so happy I’ve been given this chance.
But I am very grateful to be staying at my son’s for a few nights for the next month – to have some quiet time to blog, to read, or watch TV.
So tonight is my first night to spend on my own – and I sit here on my computer, with the lights low and music playing (ABBA of course). I will enjoy this next month with a few nights to myself, to plan my next adventure (and yes one is in the works to happen by the end of the year if everything goes right!).
Sweet dreams my fellow bloggers.
