Hello to you all. Where do we start? Oh, I felt overwhelmed when I viewed this episode. It was more by luck than judgment that I managed to avoid the foray. . .

Firstly, the calm before the storm -- planning my daughter's wedding. It was moving forward rapidly. We only had four months to plan, total, as she wanted to be married. . .as quickly as possible. . .Kidding, before the end of summer.

Kevin was finally bringing it home. The table settings were exquisite. The flowers I knew would be absolute perfection, as that is the area at which he excels. I became excited to see the gorgeous table settings that, luckily, Pandora and I both loved. Thankfully we normally agree. It makes life so much easier.

As we exit from the fairytale like experience, we enter into a much darker place. I don't know if it was because subconsciously I was still reeling from the shock of the tea party and the conversation with Adrienne at her house that I made the decision to work late and meet my husband for drinks at Villa Blanca. Thank goodness. I hadn't been coping so well with all the demands that were being made on me. I was always running late. Between my latest venture, trying to plan my daughter's wedding, Villa Blanca, and many other demands, I was spreading myself too thin. The construction of Sur, as you witnessed a small part of this week, was designed and opened within two months, which proved to be a challenge that's for sure. But it's always a race against time as you are paying rent and obviously not trading, so one has to be prudent and expedient to say the least.
