Hello everybody! This week seems to have whizzed by. I have been in NY and now safely back home, but life has been hectic. My new years resolutions are also completely done for. . . Oh well there is always next year.
And so the story unfolds, as we recommence with Brandi still reeling from the confrontation with Scheana. It had been a precarious meeting, one that could have gone either way. Scheana had initiated it. I, with a certain amount of anxiety, had facilitated it, after Brandi decided that it was much needed.
Many have questioned my judgement in continuing to employ Scheana, but understand this, she had been working at Villa Blanca for almost four years and often picking up shifts in Sur. She had always been a reliable and good waitress. I had only been friends with Brandi a few months, or so at that time. One: legally I could not terminate her employment. And two: morally I wouldn't. It was a personal situation, that until now, had been none of my business.
I do believe that often the thought and the unknown is always more intimidating. If you face things head on, I think you are often surprised by the outcome.
If there is one result that has transpired out of this uncomfortable situation that is the fact that both women now don't dread the possibility of running into each other at the restaurant. They have some sort of closure -- and so forwards we go.
