Well you need to know husbands mother was living with us by this time. She paid half utilities set by husband. Our basement was not like a basement at all..more like a house on top of a house. She moved downstairs her choice…as eldest son and family were moving from Georgia to KY. They would have moved into our basement area. Their son not even a year old yet. Husbands mother did not want that she would let them move to her home in Frankfort, and she would move to the farm and basement. I am sure my son paid her some rent don’t know for a fact though. His mom at the time on oxygen, but able to do her own laundry, cooking she loved it had a kitchen too downstairs in our basement, had cleaning people in Frankfort she paid for etc. She had money to be comfortable. Who though was doing this stuff? Me, she did do her cooking. I was also the driver for all her trips.
At this time also, it was agreed that her daughter would have her half the year and us have her half the year. This NEVER happened. They would argue about things.
Our offices were in the basement area then..as the house basement was the office for the corporation, upstairs our living. Not long after she moved in husband because she would interrupted him while working as he was there…moved offices upstairs.
What I was hearing with husbands conversations with his friend, could have been some kind of inside joke with them … he called him honey. He would call me sug (as part of word sugar??) shug. This new as he never called me anything.
