We had such a blast at NASCAR. I had never been to a NASCAR race before, but our good friends, Kris and Brittany invited us and our friends to experience a special behind-the-scenes day at the track. And it was beyond amazing! A special thanks as well to Zane Stoddard for keeping track of us the whole time and enhancing our experiences. And I can't believe I got to meet Danica Patrick! I was so nervous and star-struck! I've only felt like that one other time when I met Jackie Joyner-Kersee, I love a strong female athlete.
When I told Heather at the racetrack that Shannon was "consistently inconsistent", I didn't know that she DIDN'T tell Vicki what I said, but instead Tamra told Vicki. Until I spoke to Tamra and Shannon, I was under the impression the whole time that Shannon told Vicki. I'm so glad she didn't and that she (kind of) kept her word of not bringing up the psychic to Vicki at the birthday dinner. I felt bad when I watched myself say that about Shannon. It wasn't nice and I regret it.
I was happy to have Tamra take me on a tour of the beautiful home in Coto de Caza. I told Tamra that I was nervous to be looking at a house with her because I knew she would pick out an amazing house for me to see and I would fall in love with it - no matter the price or location! She sure knows how to show a home!
So from one expensive mansion to an even more expensive and larger mansion: the Dubrow Chateau! Can you believe the size of this place?! The elevator looks like it's industrial-sized! And for the record I think a luggage closet is a fantastic idea, especially for my family because we carry a lot of baggage...wink, wink.
I was shocked at Vicki's response to me when I brought up the psychic and Brooks' treatment. Vicki immediately went on the attack and I couldn't get a word in edgewise. Watching this made me ask myself if her style of arguing by throwing jabs is simply a personality flaw and/or a defense mechanism to hide a deeper issue? It still remains strange to me that people (Vicki) who have similar struggles (like cancer) don't band together. I've never experienced the kind of hatred that Vicki spews at me regarding a devastating illness. Any single one of you reading this blog who has been directly affected by cancer (either through a close friend, yourself, or a caregiver) knows that it consumes you. "Too much time on my hands" says Shannon, no, it is an all-consuming thirst for knowledge, a cure, a support group - anything to help you cope! So yes, of course when I heard about this alternative to chemo that Brooks was trying called "resveratrol" I researched it. If he is onto something that can cure cancer and I don't know about it, I can damn well promise you I will be doing some thorough research.
But guess what, resveratrol doesn't cure cancer. Add another strange tidbit to the pile of doubt surrounding Brooks' story...
