Last night we took Sweets' dad out to dinner for his birthday. We went to a restaurant where we ordered steak and had appetizers and dessert to go with the meal. Dinner was great. He seemed to enjoy it, even though he spent half of dinner texting. It's likely the only celebration he will have.
Sweets gave him a card she picked out and signed, and I gave him a gift card for gas. Sweets doesn't want to give him any gifts. He has sold or given away a shirt and another gift she has given him on previous occassions.
Bottom line, he seems to be over his mad spell from a few weeks back. He is supportive of her finishing the year in Children's Chorus and assumes I am still picking her up every weekend. Nothing has ever been said about the trip she didn't get to take with us over spring break, so I'll let sleeping dogs lie. Perhaps soon I will bring up getting the Power of Attorney signed so I will have it before we go anywhere this summer.
