We head over to Kim's and I thought it might be a good idea to grab a burger before we went in to hopefully help Carlton sober up a bit and help me to stop feeling so crappy. I feel bad I was ill at Kim's house, but it really couldn't have been helped. It was better that we didn't stay anyhow because Joyce was there in some ridiculous get up and I didn't want to have a confrontation with Miss Attention Seeker a high school graduation party.
Lisa called and asked if I had any dresses I could donate to foster girls for their prom and I was more then happy to help when I can. I actually donated my Reem Acra wedding gown to an army wife, and donating the other gown I wore at my wedding felt like a healthy cleansing move to make. Putting the past completely behind me and starting fresh with some new dresses and new memories. . .
I also thought this could be a good time to hash it out with Joyce and move forward. It is really hard to explain my issues with Joyce to all of you -- but I'm going to try now. Ages ago at Carlton's luncheon Lisa snapped at Joyce, but only because I had just told Lisa that I felt bad for talking about her faint on Dancing With the Stars on the car ride over. Lisa was upset with me and I understood why, but unfortunately she took it out on Joyce when Joyce went to fix Lisa's hair. Lisa was snappy, and Joyce gave me a look as though she were appalled.
Joyce is quite the exaggerator. I thought I was being nice to Joyce by giving her a call and a heads up about the situation. I told her I saw Lisa snap at her but explained it wasn't about her at all but that it was about what I had just told Lisa. I said Lisa is very sensitive, and it's better if you don't make a big deal out of this but maybe just have a quick one-on-one conversation so that it doesn't get blown out of proportion. Then Joyce decided to make a huge deal out of it anyway on the rooftop of the Thompson, exaggerates the entire thing, and then tries to throw me under the bus with Lisa when all I was trying to do is help Joyce understand that Lisa was mad at me and not her. So now your up to date on why I have an issue with Joyce. I think they should change Joyce's title to drama queen not beauty queen. . .
