These were the appetizer at lunch.
When we got home later, I called both my grown children.
I didn't think it had been THAT long since I spoke with them, but it turns out one has a sprained ankle, cast, crutches and inhibited mobility, and the other is mired in a "slough of despond" for LOTS of reasons. But a slough is a slough.
I am confident that both will have improved circumstances. Feel sad for both, even though I also laughed with both during the course of our conversations.
DH was encouraging, engaged and supportive of them AND me. what a peach.
