Yep, they leave tomorrow. So we will eat out again today. I will be so ready to stop eating out and go back to eating normal. I have been so very lucky with eating out and not having any flair ups. My health seems to be holding out nicely. I am feeling good. So good that my DH and I are considering going to Seattle for dear friends of ours son's wedding and to see Tommy Jr. and his new girlfriend again. Then we will go from Seattle to Pennsylvania to visit the grandkids. My DH will stay there for two months but that is too long for me. I will come home earlier to be with my kitty girl who will most likely be lonely without her brother Lancelot.
And aren't family dynamics interesting. The sisters have issues with their father...my FIL. He is very self centered and always has been. I can handle him and he and I have a great relationship and he appreciates all that I do for him. But funny to watch how much he bothers his daughters when he brags and things. Both sisters have thanked me so much for looking after him and having him live down here in Mexico. They both say they could not handle him around them much. They don't even like calling him much anymore. I guess since he isn't my Dad I can put up with things easier. I was very lucky to have a loving caring Dad who always put his arms around me and told me how proud he was of me and that he loved me. Their Dad doesn't really show that kind of emotion and doesn't seem to express love to them. I know that is hard for some men. But then I think about my relationship with my own Mother and even though we tell each other we love each other daily in email or when we talk on the phone, our relationship is strained. We have our issues. So yes, family dynamics are interesting. I bet many of you have interesting family dynamics as well. But that is just part of life. I am just glad that I have the patience to deal with their father for them.
I do hope all of you have a wonderful day.
