Or perhaps, guess who I'm going to dinner with....Steve's ex (the decent one, for those of you who've listened to me whinge). Did I already mention he's not invited (see previous post)? I can't say I'm looking forward to it, although she sounds very nice on the phone. It's a must do, I think, as since they speak weekly, she's not going anywhere....and neither am I. Strangely, it seems I'm getting big bonus points (among ooohs and ahhhs and OH MY GOD NOs) from other women on this one. It seems I am brave and mature, and that this is the way to 1) see what is really going on and 2) let her know not to mess with me (not that I think she will). I figure it's just a way to get it over with!
Modified to add: Turns out she's a real sweetheart; not that I expected otherwise, but I've never liked (surprise surprise) that they are friends. So, she's no longer banned from the house and who knows, I may hang out with her again;)
