I had a great Thanksgiving! Guess what.... Crab came to Thanksgiving dinner at my dad's house! We had such a good time. Everyone LOVED him and he loved everyone. We stayed until almost 1 am! It was the first time I ever brought a man with me. EVER. Not even my husband would come. So it was just really new and exciting all the way around! We sat around the table and drank and cracked up ALL NIGHT! I'm smiling just typing about it!
Did I tell you about Hurricane Sandy? I don't think so but we decided to spend the storm together, me Crab and Mini. We got food and movies and hunkered down at Crab's house. The next day lots of people were without power. But CRab wasn't so it went from Me Crab and Mini to
Me, Crab, Mini, Daughter #1 and her three kids and her boyfriend and his kid, Daughter #2 and her kid, Son and Ex-wife. Yup! It wasn't terrible though. And Ex-Wife and I really like each other so it was ok. But after 1 night of it I had to go home. It was just too crowded. But it was really nice to get to see the ex-wife and talk with her a little more. We really do get along great. I ran into her Sunday morning and she invited us to go to a holiday party with her and her husband. I'm sure Crab will never go for that!
So yesterday I had a moment. I came over and brought breakfast We ate. He fell asleep. And I felt like "I guess I should go" so I got up to leave and he's like
C: What's wrong?
M: Nothing. I'm gonna go to Target.
C: For what?
M: I don't know, I just feel like I should go somewhere. I don't want to disturb you.
C: You're not disturbing me. I want you to be here. (Turns over goes back to sleep)
I sit for a second. Just watching TV, then all of the sudden tears. I mean lots of tears start streaming down my face. To hear someone say:
I Want You To Be Here
It was. I don't know. I just feel. It's just an amazing feeling to be wanted back.
