Shannon Isn't Putting Emotions onto Tamra

Shannon thanks Vicki Gunvalson for coming to her defense and tries to rise above the drama before their big trip.

This is a fairly tame week for me. Nice for a change. . .

I have a true friend in Vicki Gunvalson. She understands me and is willing to go above and beyond to defend me. I truly appreciate that she sticks up for me again in her conversation with Tamra. I am not misplacing any emotions about my marriage onto her -- I am justifiably upset with her for not being truthful again and again.

I feel bad hat I had to miss Lizzie's birthday party. I had pneumonia and couldn't possibly go. I would have been disappointed with a huge limo bus and large table at a restaurant with only four people. I thought it was great that Vicki and Brooks were there to celebrate!

As you can see in this episode, I am distancing myself from the drama and focusing on my family. David and Sophie are going off to Italy with her Latin class. Years ago we were in Hawaii and all caught the H1N1 flu; ever since then, I always attempt to be over-prepared when packing! I want to make sure that if something happens, David and Sophie have everything at their fingertips! I truly am proud that my children know what natural supplements and remedies to take if they are sick or get injured.

It is hard to watch your kids grow up so fast! I want to freeze time! Watching Sophie take a big trip like this is only a reminder that she is getting older and going to head out into the world before I know it. I truly cherish my time with my kids and family!

I can't stand to argue, so when I am asked to Bali I am willing to try to once again move forward. I have been incredibly hurt, but am open to see if Tamra, Heather, and I can move past things. I have never been away on a girls' trip, so it will be quite an adventure for me. Stay tuned next week as we go to Bali!
