husband is picking M up Friday after work and he will come by the house for dinner. I have some new clothes for him that he can wear at work. I did talk to him about his job yesterday. He is excited and likes the boss, but "he can see why L might have had problems with her." I think she was a straight laced employer and L doesn't like rules, especially when she is working in her dad's office. I told him to just let that be between the two of them, he's not L, and it has nothing to do with him. I invited L, as I am not "seeing red" mad any longer. husband or I will nip it in the bud if she brings something unpleasant about her time at that office up. Something along the lines of "Maybe you can let M have his own experience there, since you were unhappy with yours." It should be a challenge. I have cabinets and some countertops in the kitchen. I have a stove and a fridge but no sink or dishwasher. I'll get some fresh corn on the cob and some ice cream for desert and call it good. We're supposed to be in a heatwave, and our AC is working (for now) so maybe we can go Wii bowling or something. We have a big day planned for the next day, so we will have a good excuse to send everyone home early and keep it short. This is the first time M has been invited to our house since Christmas 2003, when he didn't show up. Wish us luck!
