Over the weekend, my step-sons girlfriend asked my husband to help her take their old shingles to the dump. A few weeks ago my husband, his son and the step-father were helping the step-son redo part of his roof. Since the dump closes early on Saturdays they weren't able to take the old shingles right away. Scheduling problems have kinda dragged this out and it's been 2 weeks. The step-son is away on training for the week and the girlfriend wanted to get it cleaned up while he was gone. She's a teacher so she's free during the day. My husband has to work - no vacation time left and a pretty strict boss. I work from home with my 2 businesses and am very flexible so I offered to take her (we have the truck). So on Tuesday, the girlfriend and I hefted the shingles to the truck from the back yard, into the truck, then to the dump - 3 times. We had a great time and I got to know her pretty well. I debated all morning about inviting her to lunch one day because the bio-mom is a real nightmare. I mean, he's a grown man, 25 or something, and the bio-mom would have an absolute fit if she knew that the girlfriend was being nice to me. Well, I did text her to see how she was feeling, and also offered to do lunch some time. She's very receptive, but I just hope neither my step-son nor her suffers the repercussions of this. Do you think I'm overstepping my bounds?
