Things have been fairly mellow around here since the big breakup. Rhi's happy with her new/old boyfriend and he seems pretty happy with her. It's about the most mature relationship she's been in so far. She's not all crazy when they can't be together. She doesn't always think that he's off with someone else or anything like that, which is really refreshing.
We went over to Dawn's last night after Troy got off of work (I went earlier & he met me over there) and played Apples to Apples. Rhi & Sean showed up awhile later & added to the fun, which was really great. Who'd have thought that such a simple game would be so much fun? We kept expecting Charley & Vicki to show up, because she had mentioned coming over, but they didn't. Speaking of Vicki, she's taking a class on financially responsibility or something & is really getting it together. She's pushing Charley to help her get them out of debt & is already starting to look at real estate so that she knows when the market drops enough for her to be able to afford a home the size they need.
Charley did finally show up, right as we were finishing up & getting ready to go to bed. There will always be a little tension if Sean is there when they are, because his sister & Vicki's brother are in the middle of a divorce, but I think it'll be ok in the long run.
We'll be going over tonight for dinner & gaming & I'm really looking forward to it, because Dawn's making her homemade chicken noodle soup!!
