Thanks D. (((HUGS)))

First night with TDH is in the books. He said he couldnít wait to see me and wanted to get out of the city before his ex and kids found a reason to keep him there (lots of challenges with his son apparently) so he came over a day early. I had a pedicure appointment just before dinner so he hung out at my house for an hour. When I got home, he was out on the deck chatting with my XMIL and SD20. I could tell from the look on my XMILís face that she likes him a lot. Today I am working from home and heís got plans to mow my lawn and talk recipes with XMIL...lol. My kids are heading to their dadís today. D12 spent most of her evening showing TDH her art, playing him games of Battleship and dancing in the living room...lol. I hadnít planned to introduce them but both kids had talked to him on the phone and they insisted they wanted to stay and meet him so I said okay. You can tell he has lots of kids in his life. He could not be more comfortable with them.

TDH fully appreciates my situation with XMIL and thinks I am really lucky to have such great support. He loved my whole family (my twin was here for a bit too) and I think the feeling was mutual. He is just so comfortable in his own skin and it totally shows. I told XMIL I was working from home today because I didnít want anyone to feel awkward about a strange (new...not weird....lol) guy kicking around the house. She just waved her hand at me and told me it was completely fine. Oh well...sticking around anyway...lol. She was NEVER this relaxed with Jack. Never came upstairs or had any kind of a conversation with him. Last night she was chatting with TDH like sheíd known him for years. So...good start. Hockey game tonight. TDH is making me fish tacos...finally. laugh
