I loved being in Montana. . .It brought back memories from my days in Switzerland where your surrounded by cattle and nature. Hiking is something I used to do a lot when I lived there. I like to keep fit so a morning hikes in such a beautiful place was perfect for me. I love nature and like the peace and quiet, it keeps me grounded.
Some of us aren't as happy in nature as I am. Sonja seemed to let the cabin fever get her. I grew up in nature like that in Connecticut so it doesn't bother me. I loved it but obviously Sonja started hating on it. What did Connecticut ever to to her? Quite honestly I'm not sure what's gotten into her but she certainly hasn't been behaving like my friend Sonja, the girl I used to know. Constantly finding things to pick on me about and not reacting to a facialist thats saying things about me she knows are untrue! With friends like these who need enemies?
My heart warmed when I saw Heather jump to my defense. Sonja, once again, had too much to drink so hearing her call me a pig was just one more needle in the haystack, but for me its the last one! I'm done with her.
I'm not jealous of her relationship with Ramona, I'm STUNNED by it. Its now crystal clear to me Sonja doesn't appreciate my value as a friend -- and she can keep Ramona anyday! I've got plenty of friends (like Carole, Heather, and Kristen) who really do appreciate me and who see right through Sonja and her jealousy of my life. Sonja even says it, "Lu has everything." I know she's going through hard times, but I learned a long time ago to get rid of people who are jealous to make room for well wishers. Jealousy is a very ugly trait!
There was no way I was going skeet shooting when I could try something as adventurous as rappelling? I like to try new things and conquer my fears. I was definitely scared, but like they say "if your not scared your not living." I was also excited to rappel with my real friends! What is more bonding than fear? I thought Heather was very supportive of Kristen, who was even more scared than I was. When I arrived to the ground I felt the need to kiss the earth, as I've done before with sky diving. Kristen reaction's was to cry and that's OK. We all have our own different ways of dealing with relief! I'm so glad I did it, one more thing off of my bucket list. Would I do it again? Probably not!
I must say geocaching was not my favorite thing, neither was fly fishing for that matter. I love hiking and being in the wilderness, but trying to find hidden things in the woods with a bunch of ladies was a confusing, who-really-cares kind of experience that most of us didn't get! I know its pretty popular, but not with this bunch. If they had hidden jewelry that might have helped spark some more interest! When we lost interest, that's when we seemed to loose Heather to beer. I don't blame her, none of us were really enjoying it. I think that helped fuel the fight that would take place soon after we started on the hunt! Is Heather bossy? Not really, but I think we all needed guidance and Kristen took it the wrong way. I love women who have it together and if that makes them bossy, then bossy is for me!
Until next week back in the city!
Bisous not bison!
