Totally Frenched Out

Alright, now on to the good stuff. I met up with the nice (ex)SIL the other night. She told me all kinds of interesting gossip, most of which made me feel even worse for Katell. How f**ked up is that? I'm feeling bad for the girl who stole my boyfriend. (Okay, well, to be fair, she didn't steal him - she just put herself out there and he took the offer. She was cheating on her own bf though).

Apparently though the night of their crémaillère/house-warming party, all the "kids" had a huge blow-up about me, and suprisingly enough, it was started by Fab's younger sister. No other than celle qui m'a envoyé chier after we broke up. And then his other sister and the nice SIL started in on him about how he was a huge coward, how what he did sucked and how he was moving too fast with this girl - apparently he even cried, and the SILs did too. Fab's stepbrother tried to distract poor Katell during this time, but obviously she could still hear what was going on. How's that for a "welcome to the home we're trying to build together" party?

On top of that, it's been about five months now and he is still saying "nous" and "on" in reference to me, even in front of Katell. He does it pretty much every time they have a family get-together. They all went to Brest this past Saturday to celebrate his older sister's birthday, and he did it again there, in front of the whole family. Katell elbowed him in the ribs and they all just kind of froze, not knowing what to do. Granted, I still talk a lot about Fab too when comparing experiences, but I don't have a new bf.

She also said his older sister & her husband don't like Katell, and are still pissed that Fab didn't tell them we'd broken up. They found out when they showed up for Fab's dad's retirement party over a month later, and saw Fab there with someone who was not me. Can you imagine? How awkward would that be?

It was really nice to see her again and to catch up on what's been going on with the family. For as crazy as they were, they were the only family I had in France. And is it bad that all of this makes me feel better? Like I haven't been forgotten? I mean, sept ans, ça s'oublient pas comme ça, right??

What I don't understand is, if he was working as long and as hard as you say, when did he find time to meet and date another woman? And why would he? I've met you (at the K&K picnic in June) and you are quite attractive, what was the attraction to the other woman? I suppose he was just scared that it was getting too close to being tied down. He is a coward.

So not to be tooo nosy but do you know what the sister (la qui t'a envoyé chier) said? Was she defending you, even though she apparenlty didn't like you? That's awesome!! Sorry I can't feel sorry for a girl who obviously made a choice of ruining a two relationships...we all make our beds..

Starman, he actually met her at work. He was working 12+ days at the farm during the week and then a 12hr shift Saturday & Sunday nights (with this girl) at BIC. Katell is apparently the complete opposite of me - short, too thin, short dark hair, looks like a boy, no education, loves farm animals and is kinda mouthy. The nice SIL said Fab couldn't have picked a more opposite person from me if he'd tried!

And Laura, she was criticizing Fab and the choices he'd made - I was surprised too, I actually stopped the SIL in the middle of her story and said "Wait, she was actually defending me??"

I think it's just great that you aren't forgotten.. Shows how great of a person you really were. ;-)

I've heard it takes 3 to 4 years to really get the past relationship out of "your" mind... Hang in there, it gets easier over time!

Its always good to feel vindicated when we are wronged. And you were wronged - by the man who was with you. HE is the one who cheated on you, I'm not in favor of blaming the other woman for what the person IN the relationship has done. HE is the rat.

Just me.

I definitely agree with you - I could never understand why, when other people's bf's cheated, the women took all their anger out on the 'other woman' and not on their bf. As if the man was innocent in it all and had no control over his actions...

I see you are doing well and your ex family in law is nice to you. That's great.

The more I read your blog, the more I realize you live very close to where my grandpa lives! He does his grocery shopping either in V or R town that you mentionned. He lives in a small village in the middle of nowhere.

Yeah that is sad, I feel sorry for her too. At the same token, you want to be damn bloody sure you want that person and all that goes with it when you start an affair with we can't feel too sorry for her.

I totally imagine her now as CPB since you mentioned the dog breeding thing. Is that really mean?

well, that does suck for cattle that fab keeps saying 'nous' in reference to you (ha). but, i also wanted to comment on what you said about talking about experiences with fab to others - of course you are! seven years of your stories involve him, it's completely normal :)
ps. that was some good gossip, i'm glad you got to hear it!

Glad you got the dirt from the nice SIL. It sounds like cattle is...a cow, to borrow a word from my British friends. Did you end up seeing the girl who treats men like dogs?
