I’m just going to dive in. Our house has been on the market for a while and we have been in and out of escrow. It can be quite frustrating. At the beginning I would find a house that we were interested in moving to, and when our home fell out of escrow, the other home would sell. At this point, I am not even going to look at other homes until I know our sale is truly going to close. I enjoyed the entire building process but did not enjoy the length of time it took. My goal is to purchase another house with good “bones,”, strip it down, and put our own finish on it.
My girls are very particular about the type of home they want to live in. Sophie is the only child that has any traditional taste. Stella and Adeline want a completely modern home— nothing like our current house! It is definitely going to be a tall order to make everyone happy! Looks like I may have to make some changes!
Just an aside, you may remember me taking the girls makeup shopping last season. The twins do not wear makeup and Sophie sometimes wears mascara, but that is all. When I had the conversation with my daughters about moving, Sophie had just arrived home from the dress rehearsal of her school play where they applied very heavy makeup. Just want to be clear that my child does not go out in public (or at home for that matter ) looking like she’s in her 20s!
Dinner was fun with Tamra, Heather, and Kelly. Once again the non-stop topic of Vicki came up and I am frankly tired of talking about her. Kelly keeps trying to get involved, and she doesn’t know even a fraction of all that happened between Vicki and the three of us last year. Kelly should just focus on her growing friendship with Vicki and stop dwelling on a past she had nothing to do with.
I thought we were going to be playing a beach volleyball game at Kelly’s beach party (which I never have done), so I came to play. The game never happened, but David and I had some fun trying to hit the ball back and forth. Hearing bits and pieces of Vicki and Tamra’s conversation just frustrates me because I can hear that Vicki is once again trying to make excuses and deflect everything that happened last year. I’m glad to see that she and Tamra have reached a peace with each other. They have a long history.
Vicki talks to me next week. And it wasn’t a fun conversation. Tune in…
