Hi! First let me explain what was (and still is) happening between me and my on-again/off-again boyfriend JR. I'm sure one can only imagine the huge amount of trust issues I must have. Well, JR has a bunch too, so maybe we're not the best combo.
So after he got me my dream rental the day prior, I text my "boyfriend" JR, saying "Let's go out and celebrate!" He texts me back "Just randomly, last minute boarded a plane to Austin for a music festival with a bunch of my 'couples friends' and will be back in a few days. . ." In my head I go to the "super shady" place, and I don't need this again. There was no invite, no discussion, and no mention of a trip to me. He just decided to up and go -- which is fine if your a single guy, but not if your telling me you want to be my boyfriend. So we broke up. . .again! JR and I are Brokeback Mountain-style -- "We just can't quit each other." Ugh.
Let the games begin! Watching the show back is always taxing and exhausting. While I do believe that Lisa fainted, I had to give her a bit of a hard time about it because it was oh sooo pretty. Maybe when she fainted she hit her head -- that would explain her recent memory loss of a certain conversation we had. I am many many things, but a liar isn't one of them, and you will see who the real liar is as you watch this season.
I read of Lisa's health issues in her blog this morning, and honestly I am quite shocked. After almost a year of morning phone calls from her and hanging out constantly, I have never heard of or seen any of Lisa's health issues, other then her faint. I honestly feel like someone is playing the victim card pretty hard here. The only person who is actually really suffering in our group is Yolanda. Yolanda's struggles continue and her health and family are in my prayers as always.
Carlton's house is AMAZING! I've never seen anything like it. It really is a miniature castle. I felt a connection with Carlton from the very beginning and not just because of our mutual love for cursing. We are both mothers to young children and passionate about our families.
I met Carlton's best friend through my girlfriend and she said that Carlton was a girls' girl and "c---y in a good way," so I assumed it was safe to repeat this. Not everyone clicks from the get-go, and some of our friendships will take more work then others.
As far as Kyle and the story of Mauricio's infidelity goes, I actually found out about this article coming out ahead of time and gave Kyle and Mauricio a head's up so that they could try and squash it. I would never wish for a family to be torn apart by gossip, and, although it's not clear now, I really was looking out for the well being of Kyle's family and didn't believe the silly rumors anyhow. I know firsthand the damage it can have on a family -- true or not. We have a long journey ahead of us, and I have a stomach flu, so goodnight.
