It's cryptic; I know....

Where to begin???

I had this whole post about Charleston and our girls weekend just about written. All it needed was some tweaking and a few pictures.....so why can't I post it?

Because although we had a wonderful time and Charleston is AMAZING!...... If you ever have the opportunity - GO!!!!! It's fabulous.


There remains the bombshell that my dear friend dropped on me before we even left the city limits!!!! And we had a five hour drive ahead of us. And a whole weekend.

I'm concerned. About her. About her family. About how much to reveal (even though she doesn't know I blog). About everything.

Major tip....if you are planning a weekend away with friends - wait to drop the bombshell, if you have one to drop. Why? Because it casts a pall over the weekend for the one you've told. Because no matter how much fun we were having . . . it was there. Hovering over my head the whole time.

So, I'll get to the trip.  I promise.  But right now I'm wrestling with the information I have.  She asked me not to tell Hubby .... but seriously????  How could I not?  And she had to have known that I couldn't keep this from him.  That I couldn't deal with this craziness alone.  I had to tell someone. 

So I told him....and before it's all over I may tell you - because really?  What's the point of this blog if I can't be truthful? 

Hubby was as apalled as I was - and was much more forthright than I was when faced with this info.  But....as I informed Hubby - I had a whole weekend to face with her.

What they say is true.  You think you know someone; but then.....they prove you wrong.

Despite it all, I still love her dearly. But I have to wonder about her thought processes....and, in the true Gigi-fashion, can I fix this??


  1. I am a little confused..my girls will tell you that happens often.. but how does a good friend of yours not know about your blog? I have often thought about doing another one where family and friends don't know. Just curious.

  2. All I can say is pray for her and her family no matter what she told you. Good luck, nice to have you back.

  3. Gayle - no one knows about my blog. Well, actually my boys "know" about it but aren't privy to it. Because it's kinda like a diary a place for me to let it all out.

  4. Oh I want you to tell as I'm very nosey! Glad you had a good time even if it was overshadowed by your friends news. Did Hubby have any suggestions?

  5. Now I'm curious. What happened? What decision did she make??? I'm like make do mum, but I call it curious, not nosey! LOL

  6. OK... somehow you have to OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND SPILL.

    <--- is incredibly nosy

  7. Okay...not to be cryptic? Are you kidding me?

    For what it's worth, I don't think it was fair of her to want you to not tell hubby.

    The fact that she said that means that she's mad at hers....so there's something there.

    You'll spill when you're ready, no??
