I know many of you came here expecting to hear from my daughter, Georgiana Neverall. However, that Christy Evans person has already given Georgiana plenty of opportunity to express herself, and I really feel it is only fair that I have a chance to tell my side of the story.
Georgiana is the light of my life. She’s my only child, and I love her dearly. But I do not understand her. Not for a minute.
All I ever wanted was for her to be happy. Marry a good man, settle down and raise a family. That doesn’t seem like a lot to ask, does it?
Her father agreed with me, but he never could say no to Georgiana for anything. When she got it into her head that she wanted to go to Caltech, her dad agreed, away she went, and she never came back.
I really hoped this wedding would be a chance for us to reconnect, to have a real girl-to-girl mother-and-daughter relationship. But can I get her to meet me halfway? Not likely!
I really don't think I'm asking a lot. I want her to be there when I marry Gregory.
Can I tell you a secret? Promise you won't repeat this to Georgiana, okay?
I know she doesn't like Gregory. I mean, I can understand her reluctance - she adored her father, and having another man come into the family is difficult. But I really think it's the fault of that Blake person. I know I shouldn't speak ill of the dead, but he did break her heart, and now it's very hard for her to trust a successful man like Gregory.
But I'm getting married in just a few months, and she will be part of the wedding, even if she isn't too excited about it. I'm sure she'll come around. Eventually.
Sandra Neverall, the queen of Pine Ridge, Oregon, real estate, is engaged to be married in the spring. Her daughter Georgiana - the lady plumber star of SINK TRAP and LEAD PIPE CINCH - isn't thrilled. But what can a girl do when the Bridezilla of her nightmares is her own mother?
