What a day it was!

Probably better that her soon to be ex-dh was not there. It could be too emotional and difficult for both of them. It could have brought back memories of them moving in.
I remember years ago when my sis was in a similar position. Her ex did help her move out and honestly, we all had a hard time being civil to him.
That is too bad that none of her friends were available.
I agree with Tea--it would have been a disaster if the ex had been there.
I know you're right, and it's best he didn't participate.
I'm sure there's a food pantry somewhere, that would take all that package stuff off your hands, AND love you for it!
