F-I-L is MUCH better.  The chest pains were a minor heart attack, which is fairly common for folks who have the surgery he'd had on Monday after having had a bypass.  Still, heart attack...
But the first thing he asked about after surgery was whether he could watch the basketball game.  :)
He's doing well, so far.  He's eating, walking a bit, and is in good spirits. His vitals look good.  He's still in ICU, so they're keeping a close eye on him.

Today I'm taking some time alone.  Something I haven't had, what with winter break and all. :) Yesterday I met with a behavioral therapist for WG's potty training, but since then have been lying low.
She said to me that parents of kids with special needs are chosen, because not everyone could handle it.  I've heard it before, but I guess I needed to hear it again.  And I'm stickin' to it!

Since things have calmed down (a bit) since Tuesday, I went online and watched the first two episodes of the new season of "Sherlock."  I just couldn't wait, lol!  It took some hunting, but I was able to find links on Tumblr.  I won't go into detail, for those of you who haven't seen them yet, but, while they're a different tone than the first two seasons, I found them very entertaining and endearing.  But knowing Moffat and Gatiss, we're being set up for something BIG...

As for the "Doctor Who" Christmas special/regeneration: The removal of the bow tie broke my heart, but the actual regeneration made me VERY HAPPY!  Peter Capaldi is one of my favorite actors, he's been a fan of the show since he was a kid, and he's going to be brilliant!

OK.  Gotta get the kiddies off to school (hooray!) and then get me a nice, big cappuccino.  Then a train ride into the city.

Have a good one!

And, if you can, keep holding those good thoughts...

I am so glad your FIL is doing better...that is such good news.
Good for you for taking some time for yourself. Sometimes recharging the batteries is the best thing you can do! I haven't tracked down new Sherlock yet...but I may break down now that I am feeling better :)
Hope your christmas was wonderful.
