Starting last night, this weekend is going to be crazy, busy, and a little sad.
T is going to his nephew's wedding in California with his sisters this weekend. He is leaving this afternoon after work and will return on Monday. Since he will be gone for the holiday weekend, I went to see him last night. I went to dinner with his sisters, bother and young nephew. The too me to Dim Sum and orders a shit load of food. I could not believe there was so much.
We had a really nice dinner and then I was able to have a little time with him at the house before it was time for me to go home. I will miss him while he is gone, but there is something else to distract my attention at home.
K's parents are here for the weekend. They arrived yesterday, but because I went to see T directly after work, I did not see them until this morning.
Last night K had dinner with her parents along with AJ and his daughter. While I was at dinner with T, I got a text from K that AJ was getting "grilled" by K's mom. I'm sure THAT was a lot of fun for him.
This morning when I get up I asked K how the night was. When her mom got there she asked, 'So, Jim doesn't live here anymore?" just because I was out for the evening. She said that in front of my kids too. Oh, yeah... she's a real piece of work...
Once I came down stairs there were as nice as can be to me, just like she has been for the past 20 years. Her dad is not a crazy and is always nice.
Today we will all hang out as an extended family. While I'm sure there will be a little awkwardness, it will be OK.
Tomorrow, K, her dad, AJ, and my middle son are all going to the big NASCAR race. That means I will be home with the other kids and K's mother. Since she seems the think I am an absentee father, maybe I will take off for the day and let her bond with the little kids and my oldest son for a while. I'm not sure what I would do for he day, but maybe going to the gym and then hanging out in a bookstore for a few hours would be fun.
I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
