Alexis: We Know I Do Not Give Up Easily
Alexis explains her absence thus far this season and why she's not giving up on having another child.
This blog will be very short and sweet since I was only in a small part of this week's episode.
Many of you have asked so I feel I should answer your questions. As we all know, I struggled with returning this season. It was also very difficult for me to WANT to be around the ladies after what occurred at Tamra's gym party. I was invited on the Mexico trip, but did not feel it was a good choice for me to go for SEVERAL reasons. Now that Tamra and I worked things out, I begin hanging around with the women a lot more. Thank you all for your support and for asking where I’ve been!
Vicki, Lydia, and Tamra cracked me up this episode. I loved watching the three of them dancing and having fun! Looking at the three of them have such a great time, I did wish I was there. Although, after seeing what happened the next night, I'm so happy with my decision to stay home.
It looked as though Vicki, Lydia, and Tamra were truly sorry about leaving the group. I spoke with Lydia after the trip and she did mention that she felt horrible and it was not their intention to leave Heather and Gretchen behind. SO, although there were definitely some hurt feelings, I think an "I'm sorry, now let's make the best of this weekend" should have been enough.
My favorite part of this entire episode is when Vicki admits she "dribbled" and owns it. I laughed for two straight minutes over that!!! So cute, so true and SO REAL! LOVE THAT!
When the evening turned to strippers ahem, no comment.
The scene with Jim and I at Antonello's was such an amazing night. We have always stood firm that, to preserve our marriage, date night is required once a week. I cherish those times with Jim with no noise, no cooking, and no interruptions. I am very happy with my unbelievable family. Yet, I do feel a void, like there is something missing, like we are supposed to have one more child, (and my clock is ticking). This is an ongoing argument with Jim and I, and it has not been resolved. . .and we know I do not give up easily.
