Ramona's not mad she isn't invited, she's mad Heather isn't being honest.
Wow I don't even know where to begin this week. It seems as if I was getting it from every angle.
First of all I share my friends and I have always done that. I often have put two girlfriends of mine together that did not know each other well and with hope that they would become very close. So for LuAnn to say I'm jealous of her and Sonja's relationship is absurd and immature. Nothing could be farther from the truth
LuAnn is again trying to stir the pot with my friends, first by making negative comments about me behind my back with the new girls -- and now with Sonja.
When LuAnn sees Heather she says I'm glad you didn't invite Ramona to London. Are you kidding me?!? I really don't know why Heather is holding this grudge toward me, and then to my face she is all smiles and sweetness. I really wish she would just tell me to my face what her issues are with me.
To me if you are hanging out as a group of six women you invite everyone or just one or two. To invite everyone but me did not sit well, I must admit. Even more so was the fact that Heather did not have the courtesy to say to me point blank, "Ramona I'm inviting everyone but you. I don't feel comfortable with you around me so that's it." I would have respected Heather so much more if she did that. That is what I am really upset about -- that she couldn't tell me to my face.
Sonja has always been a true friend and always will be. We may get heated, but we get over it just as quickly.
Well Sonja does love a good party, and she was more interested in having fun that night than to even take in what I had to say, or what I was feeling. It might not have been the right time to discuss it with her, but with Sonja I never have to stand on ceremony. I was looking for her to listen and sympathize. I was upset and Sonja was not taking in what I was saying so I thought it best to leave. I did have a charity dinner to go to that my friend was chairing. I had told Sonja that earlier in the day I would come on time and leave earlier.
Let's go back to when I met Heather for drinks. I can't believe what she said to me about the invitation to my table of ten. She got the email and never responded, other than to say her assistant would get back to me. I was being honored at the Steve Awards, which can be compared to the Emmy for women in business. I invited ALL the women as my guests. When someone invites you as a guest and they have a table, you get back to them ASAP.
Why didn't Heather, at that time when we were having drinks, say "Ramona I have no interest in being with you." Or she could have just had her assistant respond, "Thanks but Heather can't attend," or "Ramona I am going to London and taking everyone but you!" Heather acts one way to my face and another way behind my back.
I realize now I'm not upset about not going to London, but I am very upset that Heather is not being true and forthright toward me. Heather is not communicating to me how she feels about me. I don't like people who play games.
