I was fairly certain that Man-Child wouldn't come - as he has been adamant about not seeing us as he is terrified of the possibility of contaminating us. And I was so sad about that.
But The Husband - and Man-Child's love of all traditions - lured him here; which made me happy.
And this was how we had dinner together.
|We were SO happy to see him!|
Yes, in the garage with a giant table between us; because our forecast called for rain, so we couldn't eat on the back patio. He refused to come into the house and made me take his dishes using napkins. He was hyper vigilant that we wouldn't come in contact with any possible germs.
We made the most of it; but it was a bit melancholy...especially since there were no hugs or kisses. And he stayed that far away (see above) from us the entire time and instead of coming over to spend the day, he came about an hour before dinner and left about an hour after.
So, yes Easter 2020 will certainly be memorable...but I'm thinking that next year we will be back to our original festivities, I hope. But I will count this visit as a blessing because despite it all, we were together; and apart.
