Thanks to all who played along to guess which number was the lie on my True or False post. #7 was the lie (making an offer on a house in Phoenix). We did not make an offer on a house in Phoenix (and really I got to give credit to those people who live there because that heat was oppressive; I don't think I have it in me to live in such extreme heat for the amount of months they do, even though I'm sure they somewhat get used to it; heck we lived in extreme cold in Montana for four months a year and did get used to it).
So all others were the truth, including the delightful news that hubby and me are going to be grandparents. Totally caught us by surprise.
Saturday after we had lunch with a friend and had done some wine tasting, of which I picked up a bottle of wine for son's girlfriend, since she likes wine, we went over to son's/girlfriend's apartment and visited. Whenever we visit, I always bring something they might need, a gift card for the local grocery store, paper goods, etc. This time we brought toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags. I laughed and gave the girlfriend the wine and said she got the better deal and gave son the paper products. We had a nice visit and then made arrangements to get together for breakfast the next day since both son and girlfriend had to work later in the morning on Sunday.
The next morning, Father's Day, we were together at the restaurant, having ordered breakfast and had gotten our food. Halfway through the meal, I picked up my water glass and offered a toast to hubby saying "Happy Father's Day." Everyone did the same. Then son said "next year you won't be the only father at the table." Hubby and me just kind of looked at him, took a few minutes to register what he was saying. I looked at girlfriend who was across the table from me and she kind of shook her head "yes" and then I got it. Got tears in my eyes (happy tears) and then got up and went around and hugged her and then hugged son. I guess the look on my face was priceless, they were saying they wished they had video taped it, LOL.
After it kind of quieted down with all the excitement after such an announcement, I said "oh no, I brought you wine yesterday." Of course she wasn't planning to drink it until afterwards. I'm glad the bottle we picked for her the guy at the wine tasting said it would mature in time and actually taste better.
So a new member of the family. Totally unexpected but definitely will be loved.
It is interesting how God works. A year ago son hadn't even met girlfriend yet (they met last August) but I remember one day last year thinking "I'm going to be the mother of a groom." He wasn't even dating at the time. Eventually after they met, they decided to move to this state and then 2 months later we follow. We'll be about two hours away, but closer than five hours away if we were still in the San Diego area.
Now I just have to figure out what I want to be called........Granny, Grandma, Nana, etc. Got some time I guess to figure it out.
