Family Day

Yesterday was family day. Hmmmmm. My “family” has changed significantly over the last couple of years. I do have an amazingly good relationship with all of my children and their partners, but my children and their partners now have mom in Strathroy and dad and his partner in London. They have inlaws, siblings, cousins, too many grandparents and some needy aunts and uncles. I think it is best to avoid extended family celebrations this day. Instead the “singles” got together. A group of my single friends congregated at a friend’s house, we ordered pizza, we brought wine, we celebrated our new lives.

I am so fortunate to have a great circle of friends who understand the few limitations, allow me the independence I insist on and are willing to provide the description of whatever they have chosen to watch on television. Tonight it was a mix of Rambo, Duck Dynasty and Storage Wars - yes, most of the group were men. But most of this group sampled the Utterly Deadly Southern Pecan Pie from Friday night and think I am the most awesome woman in the world!!!!
