On another note, Blair cracks me up. She is so honest, so real, and was so irritated on R&R much like and Phil and I. She banters back and forth with her hubby just like I do. I think that's why I can relate to her so well. She keeps it real. A marriage is not always rainbows and sunshine. This life is hard, dang it. And yeah we married into it and this is "what we signed up for," but that doesn't always make it easy or pleasant. There are some days I totally resent my husband, and some days I wake up loving this life. Alaska does not make these days any easier, believe me. Today, the sun was already making its journey down at 1:30 pm. Oh and by the way, it's freezing, people can't drive, and you have no family to help you out. So I don't blame her one bit for being annoyed.
Sara is such a doll. She's so sincere and I cannot imagine the adjustment she must have been going through coming into this life at such a different stage. I wish I had gotten to know her more earlier. There was so much I wanted to show her, so many people I could introduce her to. That is one of my only regrets about doing this show. I wish I could have gotten to know the ladies more. Time just was not on my side. Trying to deal with my own struggles and with work really starting to take off, I just didn't have the time I would have liked to nurture those relationships further. Bummer. I need to work harder on that.
Yolanda is such a pillar of strength. And isn't her son a doll? I don't have boys, but I could only imagine my reaction if my son sprung the marriage thing on me. I think I would be pretty hard on the girl. I can totally understand her viewpoint. As another wife, I admire her for not wanting to worry her husband with her thoughts, but instead allow him to focus on the task at hand. Her selflessness keeps all our soldiers safe.
