Well as we figured, DS's SO (significant other) had said party was at 1, eat at 2. We got there about 2:15 after working on the drain and we didn't eat until 3:15. Then the food was a bunch of "crap", as Bill said. SO has a SIL that is chinese and she made pot stickers and egg rolls that they deep fried in a fry daddy, sooo very greasy, and there were probably 4 or 5 paper plates heaped with them. No thank you not for me! Then she had garlic bread and frozen pizzas with cardboard hard crusts. The little kids didn't hardly eat anything and we didn't either. We sat there until 5pm watching the kids play on a huge blow up water slide and then hit a pinata. As we got up to leave SO said, I've got cake, well she did the same thing last year, held onto the cake until everyone but her relatives had left. No presents were opened, and DGD didn't talk to us of course. I was talking to Bill's son and he kept saying how GD needed to play with other kids, so I asked him if they were going to send her to school, he said Oh I don't know she didn't do well in kindergarten, I said yes I think she needs more help than a regular school. Then I asked him if he ever thought about when she gets older and won't even be able to even get a job because she won't talk to anyone. He of course didn't want to hear that and changed the subject. I probably shouldn't have said anything but it really makes me mad they aren't getting her some specialized help.
Today we ran the water at the other house again, it was still smelling like chlorine, and trimmed the hedges. Then we went to farm & fleet and got a few things. On the way back stopped at a real nice restaurant south of town and had dinner, I brought home enough for dinner for the 2 of us tomorrow night.
Monday I have the plumber coming to look a those "p straps" and the you call we haul guy coming for a check, he did a wonderful job hauling everything away. The electrician should be starting next week also and the well and septic need to be checked. Should again be a busy week as time is slipping away. Maybe in July we can do some fun things for a change!
We did go to the dance place last night but the music was not all that great so we didn't even dance one dance. But we did have a nice visit with friends so thats something.
Hope your Bill had a nice Fathers day as well.
