I met my daughter's fiance's father yesterday!

It actually went VERY well: I really like him!

We were all nervous, of course, and so when the Fiancé and his Father went home at around 10 that night, my daughter acted out. First she scolded her brother for leaving the cupboard open,(how dare he, LOL!) and then went off to lodge a variety of complaints with her Father. My daughter, when she is anxious, really LIKES to complain about things, and since she was also meeting her intended FIL for the first time she had every RIGHT to be nervous! So she complained about this and that for almost an hour!

Sigh. Between the squabbling and meeting the gent for the first time I did NOT sleep well at ALL last night!!!!!!! It was midnight when I finally settled down, and then I had to get up at 5 because of all of the diet cokes that I had drunk while we were all getting acquainted!

This morning I picked 2 nice cucumbers and a tomato and a fistful of okra. The green beans need picking and so I will do it tomorrow, and I ate a fistful of blackberries. One of the two cabbages that survived our late spring blizzard has a head that is cracking and it really needs to be picked and eaten, and I see that the raccoons have already eaten THREE icebox watermelons and they were barely PINK inside! This is ominous: I might not get my fair share of watermelons this year!

My daughter picks fights when she is under stress: I wind down outside!


  1. It is very observant of you to recognise the reason your daughter's behavior. That is so wise! So, there is going to be a wedding. Congratulations!

  2. Not so wise: my daughter has been playing games with her psych meds. She is back at the hospital right now and she is blaming us.

    I suspect that my daughters wedding has just been pushed back. Way back.
