Another Niece or Nephew

My older brothers' daughter Dusti is pregnant. Dusti is 34 and not married. I don't even think she's seeing anyone special. She is the one who was engaged a few years ago and her fiance shot himself.

She private messaged me on FB to let me know. I don't know how she feels about it or anything, but I hope she's happy. Her older sister is 39 and has been married for 3 years. Not sure she can or will have any, but I do know my brother and sister-in-law would like to be grandparents and thought it would never happen.

Here is a picture of Dusti and I.

My nieces shower is this coming Saturday, the 3rd. Sounds terrible, but I'm not really wanting to go. It's been so long since I've been around any family really that I feel terribly uncomfortable around them.

I'll go for a little while and see how it goes and if I feel uncomfortable I'll excuse myself. Not sure I'll know any of her friends really so I'll go and give it a try.

That's what I would do, go and if I don't feel comfortable, then make a quick exit!

I did go to the shower. It was nice and I stayed, but only because it would have been too noticeable for me to leave. Spoke a few words with my sister-in-law (she was kind of busy helping out), my other sister-in-law was there too (the bad witch) and we didn't speak. My older niece didn't really speak either but then again, neither did I except for 'hello'.

My pregnant niece was good. She is so ready to be over the pregnancy, but still has 9 weeks to go. She is absolutely huge. Dusti received a lot of nice things for only 13 people attending. The shower was just family so the bad witch and I were the only ones from my side. The rest were from the good witch side. Bad way to describe, but it's the truth.

I was glad to be able to come home.

It was my friend Judy's birthday so I took her out for supper and we had a really nice time.

Well the shower turned out pretty good, despite all the witches! LOL! I loved the way you described them.

You did the right thing by going even though you didn't want to! You really want to stay in touch. I'm proud of you! Sorry I've been MIA again!

Proud of you Janet!
Loved the way you described them. The good and the bad witches.
I describe my two sisters similar.
One is evil and the other one is lessor of the two evils.
Sad but true.

Can't pick out our relation, but friends are those we choose... and glad you were able to close the day on a good note and spend time with a true friend!

My niece had her baby last Tuesday, the 8th, but no one has called to tell me. I saw it on Facebook. The little guys name is Carter and that's all I know. A friend of hers posted a picture of him.....

Reminds me of Dusti when she was born. Dusti is my niece and the daughter of my older brother Jerry. Guess I was good enough to invite to the shower for a gift, but not an acknowledgement that my great nephew was born.

Oh shucks Janet, it always feels bad when you don't get the news.

But, Carter is adorable. Maybe she had complications or was too busy. Either way glad you got to see a pic.
