There are so many great hotels in NYC. I picked the Plaza Athenee. Our friend is the manager of the hotel and he helped me pick a very special suite. It had two floors! The first floor was a beautiful living and dining room where we had a romantic candle lit dinner. I had left Mario a note at home to meet me at the hotel in the lobby bar. Once he got there they told him to come to the room. Mario had no idea what I had planned for us! The expression on his face as he walked in the room said it all.
People always ask me, "What is your secret to a successful marriage?" I have three rules for a great marriage: trust, communication, and keep the romance alive! The romance was so alive that night! I truly feel I am one of the luckiest women in the world. I am truly blessed.
I found it difficult to believe that Jill would bring up Sonja's financial situation in front of a group of people. Jill was spewing out numbers as if she was an expert -- yet it was so obvious that Sonja did not want to discuss this. Jill just kept on pressing! Sonja has become a great friend, and I know things will work out for her. Sonja was successful before she was married.
I could not believe that Jill did not email me or call me to tell me she was not inviting me to her focus group. She had to know I would hear about it from someone else she invited. She invited everyone but me! We had promised to be more considerate of each other, and it was completely inconsiderate of her not to tell me. It was awkward to hear from other people that everyone was there except for me. It's becoming obvious Jill really can't change.
I was flabbergasted by LuAnn and Alex's lunch together. I could not believe how condescending, pompous, and dismissive LuAnn was toward Alex. LuAnn obviously lost her rule book of manners somewhere along the way.
Until next week. . .
