My ex-stepmother, Rose, invited me over for dinner.
(Yes, I know my family is weird. We’re still friends.)
And to make it even weirder, she invited Sweet friend, and XH to play cards with us. How’d ya like them apples??
(Again, yes I know my family is weird. The weirdest things were #1 When my Mama was living with me and XH, we invited Rose to live with us, because a hurricane had made her homeless. They had made friends by then, because Rose was divorced from Dad by that time too. They called each other ex-wives-in-law!! And if you think THAT was weird, wait till you hear THIS one! #2 When Sweet Friend needed a place to stay when he retired from the Navy, XH let HIM live with us! (No, we weren’t running a hotel, even though you would have thought so! Rose had already moved out by that point.)
XH was really sweet about letting family live with us, when they needed a home.
Okay, well, this post was supposed to be about dinner and cards at Rose’s. I got WAY off track there!
Anyway, while Rose was cooking, I texted: “Do ya need any help cooking?” She knew that was a trick question!
But I did go over early, and set the table. I helped!
Then we played cards. And I won! That doesn’t happen very often!!
All in all, a terrific night.
