    Default Sunday went...so so...

    Great in some ways not so great in others.

    BF's kids never showed. He really didn't think they would and they didn't. I'm not sure what's with that but oh well... Lot's of unresolved things going on, I don't take it personal at all, they do like me.

    I had my doubts about my son showing up. He did show up but he's pretty upset about a few things that he really wasn't much company, but he DID show up and ate so that was good.

    My daughter really really enjoyed spending time with me. It really felt like old times again. HUGE step in the right direction! We went shopping on Friday and she showed up early Sunday just to spend time with me before dinner. Her SO also showed up and really, the two of them had a good time, I'm sure of it. DD has really gotten to accept my BF and laughs and talks with him alot! It's all good there

    Food was EXCELLENT!!! Everything came out perfectly. How embarassing tho. I made so much food we actually forgot to put out the soup I made and the cranberry sauce! How does one forget about those things!?! I put the soup in the crockpot and never even noticed till after dessert! LOL!

    So, all in all lessons learned but bonding was rebuilt and I didn't have to look like the bad guy in ANY of it

    The others will come around, glad your not taking it personally. Seems some people have a hard time with change.
    You must have had bunches to eat to forget the soup & cranberry sauce, I would have been laughing if that happened to me.
    So glad you did it and am happy your kids came & that relationships are being built/rebuilt. Great foundation you have going there.

    Glad it all worked out OK Ruth

    So a couple of questions, will it be Soup for Dinner all this week now ? and when do we get to see your face rather than the back of your head ( however attractive it might be )?

    A little evil self indulgence here. DD whispered to me in the kitchen Sunday that my dinner was 500 times better than SO's family dinner
    I just told her that wasn't nice to say but THANKS! LOL!!

    I'm glad that it went well Ruth. Families can be so complicated down through the years. It's always good to stay open and work on those relationships.

    I lost my mother at 15. I had NOTHING to go by in the way of parenting skills once my kids got to be that age and beyond. The over riding concept of my parenting was that I wanted to be involved with my kids when they were adults. I didn't need to be their friend or any weak thing like that, I just raised my kids with the idea that I want them to be my friend once they were adults. I really didn't think I'd be divorced at this point, but I still want my kids in my life and it's been a struggle to keep it that way. It did stop being that way for awhile

    But Mom is back now
