It’s time to say good bye I have to leave.
That’s right we are leaving for the sunshine state. We will be leaving today for that long drive to Florida. We have to stop in Dade City to see DW’s family and attend the services for her grandfather. I’m not looking forward to this. I hate funerals. I offered to stay behind and watch the kids, set up for the repast, but NO! I’m also scared of getting into a fight. My sister in-law pushes buttons and I have not been fishing in 10 months so I’m ready to snap (fishing keeps me calm) also last time I spent more then 20 min. with my Brother in-law he insulted my wife behind her back in front of me and her cousin, and I told him if he was not her brother he would be laying on the floor. DW’s cousin still thinks I should have hit him but he was drunk as usual and I really did not want to get arrested.
I truly married the BLACK SHEEP in that family. She is nothing like her sisters or brother. DW finished school, has never been arrested, never had a DUI, has only 1 child and is married to the father (me) and after 20 years is still on her first husband/spouse (me again). I could go on and on.
Going on, after spending 5 day with DW’s family we go back home and get to enjoy our first adults only trip in many years. Our last trip was over 6 years ago and it was only a over night stay in AC. Followed by being kicked out of our home by mother nature for 5 mounts. Five days home and then it’s off back to DD and NJ.
