Last night was a first for me. Both AJ and T were at the house ... at the same time. I was eager to see how it would go to have my boyfriend and K's boyfriend at the house at the same time.
I have said before my dream of how all this mess ends is a vision of Thanksgiving dinner with K and her husband, me and my partner (T) along with my kids, their respective families. I was a step closer to that last night.
I spent most of the day preparing. We (K, the kids and me) spend the morning cleaning the house. I then got supplies at the store and then spent the rest of the afternoon cooking. I made the same corn chowder that T refers to as "Onion Soup", only this time I made it with about the half the onions. I also made a chicken chili and corn bread.
I bought bread to go with the soup, sourdough and crusty French. I know that T really likes bread that is crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. I also made some chicken chili. That was a new recipe and while it was OK, I doubt I would make it again. T showed up with an ice cream cake that generated smiles from the kids (and me).
We did not all eat together, K was not hungry and AJ ate while T and I ran to store for a forgotten item. T and I ate when we get back. K and AJ sat with us and we chatted some. After dinner I lit a fire in the backyard and we all sat around it talking. AJ, it turns out was a talker. T did not have a lot to say and I thought he was bored. He later assured me he was not.
It was not the vision of the future, but it was really good. There was no awkwardness and I don't think anyone felt uncomfortable. I was really happy about it.
T works on Saturdays so I knew he was tired, so I was not surprised when he told be he had to leave early. I would have preferred he stay longer, but I understood.
It was a really good night.
Another part of my dream came true.
