The meal went much better than I thought. I know I’m thin. Probably much thinner than the last time my ex-in-laws saw me.
Even given that, no one gave me any trouble or commented on my weight or the fact that I ate very little at the meal. Maybe my ex gave them a heads up ahead of time. I don’t know. I just know I had a very pleasant time with my kids and my stress level was as low as could reasonably be expected, given the situation.
