1986. The house was quiet when I arrived home. I opened a little Coors light and flipped on the TV. Then, the mailman called. We talked about the weather (it was hot) and the rain (it was muggy) and about mowing the yard. That phone call lasted for two hours and two minutes, but it seemed like two minutes. He asked me out, and to make a long story, short… we REALLY liked one another.
Here’s the tricky part. Children. Children of a previous marriage. Children of a previous marriage – on both sides. And, a couple that fell head-over-heels in love and fascination — all in two weeks!
What fun we had trying to plan “dates” around “kid-weekends” (they were opposite weekends).
Most of the “dates” consisted of picnics, fishing trips, dinners at McDonalds – you know the kind of things kids love to do. A few dates were actually in adult venue’s… but not many. With two full time jobs and 4 step children, we had a great adventure!
I hope you’ll enjoy the visit. Ask some questions-cause we’ve been there. I hope to share our family with you and want you to share your “step” adventures with me. So, Step In, and join the fun!
