The Christmas Question Answered
I posted the other day about SD59's plans for a Christmas gathering. She talked about having it Saturday and inviting her 3 kids, 2 SOS, GGS4 and GGD 4 months, her brother (OSS) and wife and DH and me. That's 10 adults and 2 kids in a small apartment. She reeled off a menu of 5 or 6 dishes.
I was so stunned that I was too paralyzed to say anything, was instantly thinking how I could get out of it. Aside from the huge Covid risk, I just didn't want to go and had already sent gifts ($) to everybody. I posted on here wondering if this was for real, or just another of her fantasies.
She called this afternoon. She decided to notch it way back Her kids are each coming by. She doesn't feel like having any food. I am radiantly happy that we are off the hook without having to make an excuse.
I think she has these visions of how things should ideally be, entertaining family like a Christmas commercial. And, BM, for all her craziness, mellowed in her older days and did Christmas up big for her kids so SD is probably flashing on that, too.
Whatever. I'm free. Yah!
