Whenever all of us get together in a car and Camille is with us, it seems like there's always some sort of discussion about bleaching or tattooing. . .mmmm! Interesting right? As long as it's not before a meal! Right?
Arriving at the house it was absolutely beautiful! When we took the tour and Sean dropped "five-bedrooms for seven girls bomb" on us everyone froze. I knew we'd figure it out as the house and the room were so beautiful. When Lisa and Brandi arrived it was definitely uncomfortable for a moment. A bit tension in the room. But that went away quickly and we were off to dinner!
I wanted this dinner to be different with no special seating. Everyone got to sit next to who they wanted to sit next to! And it created an opportunity for Brandi and I to sit across from one an another. No it wasn't planned this way, it's just the way it ended up! This gave us an opportunity to get to know each other a little.
In talking with Brandi, I felt like I really began to understand her and that we were connecting! She started talking about how when she's alone in her home that she drinks, and I did too. And then she said when her kids are gone she's lonely and she drinks, and I said I did too. And then she said all her friends are married and she's lonely and she hasn't had a lot of people to talk to and she drinks, and I said I did too! I completely related to her in this whole conversation! And it triggered some real emotions in me, reminding me of how painful some of these experiences have been.
