Had a couple of things happen this weekend. My YS called and sent me a picture of an engagement ring he was staring at in the jewelry store. He was all, "What do you think of this one for her?" It was gorgeous, so when he comes in next week, he will be asking her to marry him. I'm very happy for both of them. She is a doll, tons of fun and full of life. I appreciate her honesty and candor, she texts me every few days to see what's going on and me and DH took her to dinner Friday night to get her out of the house (she's going stir crazy after this last brain surgery). She likes to be around us, even without DS...Lol...that's a change. They really are suited for each other and I am so glad they found each other.
So he gets the ring and says, "I need to talk to you about something else, but it's going to upset you." Oh boy... He proceeds to ask if I have spoken to OS. No, not since they showed up on Thanksgiving, haven't heard from them since then. He then tells me his Dad called him and said he was at a local retail store, when a young girl recognizes him and comes running up to him. She starts asking how DIL is feeling, still sick...blah..blah...blah. My Ex said he had no idea what she was babbling about and finally he said, "I'm sorry, has DIL been sick?" She blurts out, "No, her pregnancy!" So Ex finds out that DIL is 2 months along, due on OS's birthday. He's floored and devastated to find out this way.
So apparently OS/DIL are expecting. I'm not shocked that OS didn't call to let me know. I'm hurt, but not shocked. He didn't call his Dad, and they have stayed in contact with him and SM, or so I thought. According to my YS, Ex tells him that he doesn't know what their problem is, that nothing has happened but they haven't heard from them since Christmas either. He told him that OS will not return his calls, will not come around...etc. The pregnancy is not a secret, as DIL's Mother works at this retail store and had told everyone...imagine that. My Ex wanted YS to tell me. He told him, "Please don't let your Mother find out like I did, from a stranger..she deserves better than that." So he didn't tell me, his Father, his brother, his GM (my Mom whom I haven't told because she will be so hurt that they didn't tell her)...apparently no one on our side. Her FOO all know, according to Ex. Her friends, co-workers and others around town knew. He was hurt and confused. Apparently there has been no issues between him and OS, nor DIL and he's scratching his head trying to figure out why they did this. Remember, this is Ex that sucked up to both of them after our divorce and did whatever they wanted, so they came around him and SM all the time.
Welcome to my world there Ex....welcome to my world.
YS will be in next week, for one week before being deployed next month. We have rented a cabin in the mountains for me, DH, YS and FDIL (by then
) for 3 days to have some fun.
