Happy 2nd day of Spring!
What can I say? I walk to the beat of a different drum. I much prefer the 2nd day. The hoopla is over and now us Spring Aficionados can really whoop it up!
Yesterday we had dinner at the care facility, where my FIL is living. We ate in the dining room and they had a Irish Fiddler and a guitarist playing. He is doing much better these days, and is anxious to get into the VA Home soon. He is on a waiting list and we just hope he can make it. He will be 89 in May.
Char told Roy she was done - she wanted out of the marriage and she wants to stay here, to get her life re-started. It's always sad to see the death of a marriage but I'm sorry, some marriages are just doomed at the get go. I am not surprised at this. When she married him, she had only known him 3 months - and then all of a sudden, she tells us we are NOT invited to the wedding. WHAT? Roy played into her fears, about her family being all together. Made it out like we were all going to sling food at each other during the ceremony. And YEAH, the husband was terribly hurt. Dad's look forward to walking their daughters down the aisle. As it turned out, there was no aisle - she wore jeans and so did he. She didn't talk to us for about 3 months. Now mind you, we had been on good terms with her. So we suspected, Roy was a lone wolf and he didn't want to be with any family except his own.
But we were always good for a handout.
A few months ago, my life turned upside down - everything changed and I was so overwhelmed with it all. Now, I can see, we made it through. All of us did. The Father-in-law is doing well. Char is moving on. I'm getting used to her being around and it's working. She understands me now and gives me my space. Sure, I had to throw a few tantrums. My sons like their step-sister and all 3 of them, sit around and talk and laugh and it's fun to have young people in the house. Keeps us young!
So this is my new life for awhile - I noticed my elderly neighbors across the street have their son and their grandson living with them. The son is about our age and the grandson is like in his 20's.
