little did he know

Asa was remembering last night at the dinner, at Elliot's. He made it to the dinner and he helped out afterwards.

"Maybe, we should re-think this." Asa was starting to think this weekly dinner wasn't the best plan. "It might be best if uh, you know, Amanda and I just came over and visited on Friday night."

"You know how well that's not working on Sundays." Syd reminded him.

Of course, he felt as if he were talking behind Amanda's back.

"We'll do better." He told her as he washed up the dishes. It was the least he could do.

But Sundays were made for sleeping in and brunch. Sundays now were so much different than growing up. His family... always up early when he was growing up. They were at church by 8 on Sunday morning. He didn't exactly miss those Sundays, but he still wouldn't mind in-cooperating some of the day at church. Yes, he felt a little guilty on Sundays. But he enjoyed sleeping in too. He had to admit, it felt like their day to be together. He and Amanda.

Yet, he felt a little bitter that Elliot was a no show at the dinner. Neither was Eric. What was up with that? He did his best not to dwell on it. Sam and Rachel were still out. But Kyle was playing with the kids with Amanda. He wished he could be more low key like Kyle. Maybe he was. He hoped he was. He didn't want to make a big deal, out of this.

"I am trying here." Syd reminded him.

"I know. And thank you. Really, you too, Penelope, but..its a lot of people." Asa thought he should talk to Derrick and Max. They would be less to feed if they weren't here, but still, he knew they wanted to see the kids too. Asa felt there was something more he should be worried about, but he couldn't think what it could be.

A lot to ponder. Hopefully, it won't go bad.

Asa is really caught in the middle.
