So he texted me a couple days ago and wanted to know if we were home from work, sounding like he wanted to talk. In my mind, red alerts are going off, but I talked to him and he seemed fine, although a little mysterious. At first I was afraid he was going to say he was using again, maybe some day that will NOT be the first thought in my head... Anyway, he wanted to get together so we could meet his new girlfriend. Yeah, ok, we hadn't met her yet, he talks about her a lot, even though they've only been going out for about a month.
Last night, we meet for dinner, met his new girlfriend, C. She seems very nice, quiet, pretty, kind of artistic and "punk" like him. We had dinner, talked, she is an assistant manager at a pizza restaurant, works a lot of hours, seems ok, from what I could tell. So, then Son2 says they are engaged and they want to get married next year.
DID NOT SEE THAT COMING. I don't even know what to say, we just met her, I wish I knew her better, because I don't even know what to think. We of course, gave our congratulations, lots of hugs and kisses and plans to meet family, etc.
He seems happy, he seems sure. But I can't help but think of the other times he was head over heels in love, and then everything fell apart. I do not want to see that again. But, I will wipe that doubt off of my face, and be happy for them. He is older, wiser, and more mature. He is making this choice.
I wish them all of my best wishes and happiness. And, I welcome her to our family with open arms. HIGH HOPES, that what I have. And, remember, he is very happy.
Looks like I will have a new daughter-in-law! Very exciting!
