Divorce Disaster Preparedness, Part I: Duck, Cover, and Hold.

But you know, it just shouldn’t be the role of the people going through the divorce to convince you that their divorce would be okay for you. It isn’t your divorce. It isn’t up to you. You’re not their judge and jury. If you’re their friend, be a friend. If you’re their family, be their family. Maybe you do know better. Good for you.

As it turns out Elise will spent another week in the bottom, this time it’s the fabled bottom three.
