It's Saturday and fairly relaxed so I should be open for some good luck to-day. Let's see.
1. Fortunately, I just had to ask the 17 year-old once to go up and shovel a neighbour's walk. In others years, it would have taken 5 or 6 requests. There is light at the end of the parenting tunnel!
2. I was able to clean the upstairs of the house in no time at all. One less person in the house makes a difference. Now if I could only manage to have fewer cats...
3. Luckily, the sun came out about 3:00pm, which gave me a burst of energy, so I finished the housework - even vacuumed the basement stairs and went with my husband for his 3 mile walk!
4. I am a city person. I was actually born in Toronto, so the fact that I am within walking distance to about 100 restaurants (I will count them all someday), makes me feel very lucky.
Today was a little slow in the luck department. My lottery ticket didn't win; but I checked out the numbers and the last time 5 of the 6 won was 1991. This is due to come around again. Sunday should be better!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! (for giving hope to those of us deep in the teen-parenting years!)
Just thought I'd pop in and tell you that I consider myself lucky to have found your interesting blog.
