This just got sprung on me late last night.
Background -- I first started dating my husband a year after his divorce, I had nothing to do with the breakup of his marriage, although it is true that we knew each other in high school. We were not in contact at all during his marriage -- I was married, too, and we lived in separate states. His ex-wife is bitter about the divorce, although it's been years.
I get along fine with his teen-aged boys, but the older girl (23) has kind of assumed the mantle of her mother's hurt feelings, so it's pretty fraught when she is around.
So, it'll be ok. I've made her a birthday cake and a nice lunch, and it'll be ok, but between you and me...dammit. Not the Sunday I'd hoped for, but I do it for H. Whee!
