Got some housework done today. Going out for supper in about ten minutes. Quick entry today, before my quick exit.
E.g. and I went up to Shelley’s place on Saturday for a post-wake work party. Shelley is now a widow. E.g. and I are a lesbian couple. Shelley’s son lives in a different province. Shelley’s oldest friend (since they were eight) showed up with his ex-girlfriend. And even so-called normalcy was represented, in the form of Shelley’s daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter.
In the end, it didn’t matter how our families and friendships were configured. We were all there to help. E.g. and I put away the garden furniture and made the riding mower and snow blower trade places, the guys built a new dog run based on an old chicken coop, and the women helped with laundry, groceries, and filing. Something for everyone.
And pizza all around.
It was a good way to spend a Saturday.
