I'm going to start off by saying I am in a feisty mood, so watch out!
I swear Gretchen cant get enough of me. What the heck is this girl's problem? It's like she can't go one episode without trying to knock me down. The scene on the Harley was really cute and she handled the bike a lot better than I would have ... strong legs! We all know the ONLY reason she bought that bike was to UP me. She is so calculating in all her scenes, it is like she studied the prior season just to see how she can get a rise out of the rest of us. Little does she know we all laugh at her. All the ladies BUT Alexis are on to her BS. In the past I had always thought it would be fun to have my own pink Harley. Truth be told it just isn't practical for me, a mother of four. If I truly wanted one I would buy it all by myself! So you can "suck it."
I felt really bad for Lynne at the cooking party. We have all tried to give her advice when it comes to her girls. She does need to pump up the discipline. However, to be lectured by Gretchen, the ONLY housewife that doesn't have kids is a total joke. Her comment about "popping a child out between your legs" was low-class! Like Vicki said in her blog this week, she doesn't give a crap about Alexa. Gretchen went there to try and make her self look good. She had no business going there.
All the scenes with the Barney family were super-cute. I love seeing the kids on the show every so often. We usually try to keep them off-camera. In regards to Simon's blog, I NEVER get up at 10 in the morning. I am up at 7:30 every morning. Simon wakes them up for school and drops them off on his way to work. That has always been our routine. It was the first day of school and the first time they rode their bikes. I was very nervous about them riding. In fact that exact day Sidney wasn't paying attention and rode into a trash can. The following week she fell off her bike in the driveway and broke her wrist. So, they don't ride their bikes to school anymore!
Even with everything that is going on in my personal life right now, I truly feel at peace. The kids and I have settled into our apartment and it feels like home now. My stress level is down and my energy is up. It is amazing how great things come your way with a little bit of positive energy. I totally forgot how wonderful life can be when your happy from deep inside. I know I have a long journey to be completely healed, but looking forward to my future.
