I'm not invited on every trip that Ramona makes. Nor she with me. It was Ramona's loss to leave such a great party! She should have been there for me that night and these feelings she has about being excluded should have been discussed at another time. Really, her issue is with Heather and I'm always there to listen, but not at my cover launch party with all my other friends and associates in attendance. I was blindsided!
Being friends with Ramona means knowing how she is and how she operates. One has to accept the way that she is or not be in a relationship with her. It doesn't make her a bad person. Rewarding bad behavior doesn't work either. If Ramona rants and raves and tries to control the situation in order to get invited, that doesn't mean Heather has to bow if she is not comfortable sharing her trip abroad. One has to draw boundaries with Ramona. That's why Ramona and I are still good friends and respect each other in the end.
Ramona knows that I don't blow with the wind. I make my own decisions and I don't sweat the small stuff. When Heather asked me to go to London, I didn't ask who else was going. I was going to be with Heather -- to form a new friendship and to be in London again!
I have a full plate right now with no divorce settlement, meaning everything in limbo. My business is my priority. I saw a window to take off and enjoy a new friend and I wanted to take it! I think once Ramona gets over the fact that she wasn't invited, and her feelings, she would be happy for me. I need a break -- to have fun, laugh, and not be judged. These girls seem like they want to have fun too!
Shall we tune in next week to see how "Frick and Frack" handle this tiff? What happens with the trip? Can the trip be fun without my sidekick? Everyone thinks Ramona controls me. Does she? Do I stay for Ramona in the end? Or does Ramona win and get invited? She always wins! What do you think?
