My personal opinion is that this is all an act. This is the quickest I have ever seen Teresa forgive anybody. I tried to get her to do that for two seasons with no luck. I used to have the same issue with Teresa. I would give her my honest opinion, which didn't always match hers, or I would point out a different view on a situation, and she would get mad at me for not sharing the same view as her and then would talk behind my back about how I wasn't a great friend. It was very frustrating and exhausting, because although we didn't share the same opinions or views at times, it didn't mean that I was "picking a side" or that I loved Teresa any less. In Teresa’s eyes however, she wondered whose side I was on. I was actually always on the side of a better outcome for all involved. That's all! I don't like the feeling of someone trying to manipulate me into choosing a side. Mature grownups just don't do that. I'm not a groupie, I'm a real friend. I tried to help her fight for peace, for herself and everyone involved.
Just for the record, I've kept all my friends since grade school and from every place I have ever lived. They live all across the U.S. and we still keep in touch. I think that says something. There is mutual appreciation and respect there.
Besides that little bit of drama, we were off to a great start. Everyone seemed to be playing nice in the sandbox together. How long do you think that will last?
I don't care what any of them say, they loved the RV and camping as much as we did! It was the first time, in a long time, that I saw everyone pitching in to help each other. It was the first time that I saw everyone laughing and hugging and being silly. There were a lot of laughs on that trip. They can't deny that. I thought that this is what they needed the whole time. A few good memories together and they might forget the negative feelings from the past. So far, so good. Let's just watch what happens…
