It Takes Work
Ramona explains what it takes to run a business, why she apologized to Heather, and where she is with LuAnn.
I think it is admirable that Sonja wants to pursue her own business. It takes a lot of time and energy, and I am not sure if she realizes the commitment that needs to be made. TrueFaithJewelry.com and the jewelry for HSN.com I developed six years ago, then came TruRenewal skin care, and most recently Ramona pinot grigio. To say it takes a lot of work is an understatement.
It's important to bounce your ideas off of other people. I think it was smart of Sonja to pick my brain and Heather's. You can never get too much advice from people who have successful businesses.
I really enjoyed Carole having lunch with Mario and I. I want Mario to get to know the women in my life who are becoming important to me. I have never felt threatened by women who don't have spouses or boyfriends. There are some married women who would never invite a single woman to their home or include them with their husband. Mario is warm, outgoing, and sexy. Of course, all my women friends flirt with him, and Mario flirts right back!
I find nothing wrong with it, and of course I teased Carol and Mario about this when we all had lunch!
When Heather invited Aviva to go to London I couldn't believe she didn't jump on it. I was taken aback when Aviva said she finds it difficult to travel without Reid. Aviva went to college on her own for four years and she traveled to Paris on her own, so I'm not understanding why she can't go to London alone with the girls.
What was with LuAnn having to leave as soon as I sat down next to Sonja? I thought we agreed to let it all go, then LuAnn says I try to keep Sonja from her? Why can't people share friends? How funny that when I was talking to Sonja I would not let Mario get in a word? I so wanted to talk to Sonja about Heather that I never gave Mario a chance. LOL.
Before I left the party I thought would be a good time to apologize to Heather about how sorry I was about her dads passing. When we met for drinks I was so surprised when she told me that my reaction and words were not what I wanted to convey. I had even sent her a condolence card. I know I don't always choose the right words to convey what I feel.
Sorry so short. I filmed Watch What Happens Live with Andy last night and got home at 1 am. Now I'm off to catch a plane to Specs in Houston, then to Dallas for Ramona pinot wine signings. Can I be two people please?!?
Till next week
