Adrienne Didn't Mean to Make Trouble

Kim doesn't blame Adrienne or Brandi for starting drama at dinner, and she's just sorry she started crying.

Hi everyone. I hope you're all having a wonderful week!

In watching this episode as you can see there was a little drama but all in all we had a good time.

Going to Yolanda's was nice. It was a beautiful at the beach that day and it was so nice to visit and get to know her a little bit better. Ojai is special to me, and I guess it has a special place in her heart as well.

Watching Kyle and Alexia at the DMV brought pack a lot of memories. Oh how I've been there! Waiting for your child to come out of that testing room is such a big deal. I have been through this four times. My heart was right there with her and Alexia while waiting for the results! As I watched Kyle tear up and discuss Alexia getting her driver's license and becoming more independent, I had a flashback to when I was tearing up because my daughter was moving out. I remember Kyle saying something like "It's part of life Kim. You need to find your own life now." LOL. As I watched Kyle, I thought. . .it's just a driver's license, little sister. She's just going down the street! Haha! She'll be back In 15 minutes! Bye-bye! My heartfelt so huge for her because I completely understand! Well Alexia passed and she's off to college in Kyle's Maserati. YAY!

I was really looking forward to trip to Ojai. Friendships, growth, and moving forward was the goal for the girls and I! Riding up to Ojai, of course, the scenery was beautiful, and the company was good and entertaining.

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.

But when she brought up Game Night, that's when I put my hand up. I wasn't angry at her at the dinner table, but it took me back to a place that was way too too painful for me. I just didn't want to talk about it. When she brought it up again, it was just one of those moments what was just too painful and hurtful and too much for me! I don't think that Adrienne was trying to cause problems. I think she saw me crying and was truly concerned. Nor do i think Brandy meant to yell "f---" at the table! I think she didn't want me to be embarrassed for crying! I don't think anyone that night was trying to make a problem. I didn't mean to cry!

I think this is the beginning for Brandi and I. And I really do get to know her a lot better! Everyone of these women are beautiful and have sensitive sides. I'm truly thankful for this experience in growing with them and learning more about who they are. I'm growing every day and learning more about myself!

Kim: Don't Mistake My Sadness for Weakness

Kim thinks Brandi and Kyle's fight at poker night had very little to do with her.

Today’s episode started exactly where we left off, back at Eileen’s poker night. I remember just wanting to leave so badly that I just kept on walking and didn’t even see the physical altercation between Brandi and Kyle. I was caught between a rock and a hard place. I mean one is my sister and one is my friend. I wanted to make it right, so I tried to speak to Kyle, but there was so much chaos between her and Brandi. Then the other girls joined in and at that point, I was frustrated and honestly wasn’t feeling well. I just wanted everyone to let me go home! This drama may have been about me at first, but it definitely ended up being about those two and whatever residual animosity they had towards one another from the past.


On the following day, my pain got even worse, so I spent the whole day getting tests done at the doctor’s. Next evening, I was admitted to the hospital. In my last blog post, I mentioned that I had been struggling with bronchitis and pneumonia for weeks. Well, the doctor said I had a fractured rib, ruptured disc, and hiatal hernia, which was caused by the increased pressure from coughing. No wonder I was in so much pain before poker night! I was in the hospital for nine days. But I'm happy to announce that I’m currently healthy and well!
Even though my family and I are going through some tough times right now, I feel stronger than ever because I need to and want to be there for Monty, my daughters, and son. All you moms out there know, we don’t get days off! Although it seems like I have a lot going on, that’s exactly what I love about my life! Planning my daughter’s wedding is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done. I can’t believe my babies are all grown up, and I could not be more proud. Taking care of Monty has been bittersweet--it’s so painful to see my best friend slipping away, but at the same time, our relationship is stronger than ever. We’re treasuring every moment we have together. Don’t mistake my sadness for weakness. If I were not strong in my sobriety today, I could never do the things I’m doing. Thank you to those who have shared their kind words and support!
Speaking of family, my favorite part of the episode was seeing Yolanda with her son. Oh my goodness, I really related to them, because I’m going through the same thing with my son, Chad. Family dynamics change, and it does get lonely for both Chad and me now that our girls have left the nest. But this is also a special bonding time for us--yes, he’s totally going to have to hang out with his mom more, which both of us don't seem to mind at all! 
XO Kim
