Trying to sweeten me up

When I got home from work tonight, Teri had prepared one of my favorite meals – lasagna with garlic bread with lemon meringue pie and vanilla ice cream for dessert.  It is pretty obvious she is trying to “sweeten me up” to the situation with her brother.  So far he is pretty much staying out of my way, but I’m not really sure if he is deliberately avoiding me or if he is just sleeping when I’m home.  Either way, I’d just as soon not see him or speak to him so I’m glad of that.  Teri and I are going to have to have some kind of arrangement about how long he can stay here and if he is a “guest” or if he is going to chip in some money to help reimburse us for his expenses while he is here.  I know one thing for sure, I don’t want to be supporting the bum!
