Hello to all of you!
When I watched this episode, as we open with the dinner I was making for Pandora, Jason, and his parents, I marveled at the fact that times like this, the pivotal moments in our lives which are shared willingly and captured on film, can be replayed. Once again, I can indulge in the incredible joy and emotion I felt as Jason announced their intention to marry. I have made no secret of the fact that this decision would be so well received, and I am absolutely overjoyed as we start the planning of the wedding.
Their journey began when they met during their second year at college, two roommates who slowly and unintentionally ended up in a relationship after six months of being platonic. With a love that transcended their close friendship, they became one. As they lived in each other's pockets they finished their studies, totally dedicated to each other. I saw the love and respect they had. I witnessed how well aware they were at their tender age. It preempted every plan, so they tried to live independently, endeavored to "date" each other. That only lasted a few short months, and eventually they were drawn back together, like two lovebirds flying back to the coup. So to see them now, so excited to announce their plans to the people closest to them, brought tears to my eyes as I embraced the family that would be entwined with ours.
The ladies had other plans. They had been invited by a friend of Taylor's, Dana, to her house for "game night." I heard afterwards that it had resulted in a complete fiasco, but I still wasn't prepared for what had been captured on film -- the anger and the feelings that ran so high as the evening deteriorated, Brandi pointedly accusing Kim of being wasted. I have to agree with Brand. Her behavior was extremely odd, but it was maybe, unbeknownst to Brandi, one of the most provocative and inflammatory things she could have said. With Kyle angrily defending her sister, it just seemed such a mess. I understand the bond between the sisters, but that said, it all seemed to spiral out of control, and we will see next week what transpires. I thank the Lord I wasn't there, because, as most of you know, I hate conflict and that evening appeared to be way too intense for my taste. Dana had invited me, but as you saw I had plans, and as I told her -- “Dana I don't play games!”
Anyway, signing off now. I'm anxious to see how this resolves itself next week. I love hearing your comments. . .
