Caroline dishes about the boys' moving day and the conversation with Kathy.

Hello! Well here we are again. Thanks for stopping in, I appreciate it!

I literally have brain freeze right now. It’s very early and I had a super late night, so forgive me if I ramble!

Today is Memorial Day, so before I speak about the show, I’d lake to take a moment and say thank you to all who have served in our military for protecting our country. Each and every one of you is a true American hero.

Let’s talk about my visit from Kathy. I met her for the first time at the fashion show, and our interaction was limited to a "hello, nice to meet you" with a little small talk sprinkled in here and there. She certainly was pleasant enough, and I had no reason to have any negative feelings towards her at all. The incident between her and Teresa at The Brownstone was none of my business, and quite frankly I wasn’t interested in the whos and the whys of it all. I just wanted it to end. Some may argue that I should have given Kathy time to explain that evening, but I have to disagree. Emotions were getting to a boiling point, and I wanted everyone out before it got ugly.

A few days after the fashion show Kathy called and asked if we could get together and chat for a bit. We actually had a nice conversation and once again, I found her to be very pleasant. At one point Kathy wanted to explain her behavior at The Brownstone. In doing so she began to tell me all the issues she had with Teresa and how she felt betrayed, etc. That’s where I had a problem. Whether or not Teresa is right or wrong in this whole mess isn’t the issue. As I said, it’s none of my business. However, here is someone that I literally just met coming into my home and bashing someone that I’ve known for over fifteen years. That didn’t sit well with me at all. I didn’t understand why Kathy felt the need to come over my house and apologize and explain herself, when in fact she didn’t call her aunt or Teresa to do the same. I’m a complete stranger, so that bothered me.
