I really don’t care about the job sites this week. I am already sad because Zoila moves out this episode. I also want to hear about the baby and see if Jeff and Gage can get some resolution to their issues.
Wait? Since when does the surrogate live in Chico which is a plane ride and a two-hour car ride away? Why are we just finding this out? They need to go rent a place up there in about two weeks and just start waiting. They are shopping for hospitals there and getting the six month check up. I don’t really think they can do that. I think they are limited to wherever the surrogates OB can practice. But they are rich, so who knows.
The six month ultrasound was the first time they saw an actual baby with arms and legs and feet and hands. Jeff is pretty emotional at the sight of the baby. Jenni is crying the most happy tears and she remains hopeful that she will have a new sonogram of her own soon. Jeff feels weird about being around the surrogate. Is this a business transaction? Are they friends? Will she be family? He is unsure how to act around her.
The birthing room is huge. The surrogate wants her mom in the room during labor. Jeff is not sure how he feels about that. Neither Jeff or Gage are sure about being in the delivery room. Because, vagina.
After the tour, the boys need a drink. So they take the surrogate and her parents (!?) to a brewery. Jeff denies being nervous. Gage knows he is lying. Gage is super nervous. Alexandra’s parents are quite lovely. Jeff has no problem with her mom being in the birthing room with them.
Zoila is packing all of her designer bags. She claims to be just fine with moving out and having more time off to spend with her granddaughter. Jeff and Gage are very pleased with the entire process.
Oh God. I should have known when we found out that Shannon’s house sold and they bought all of her furniture that we would see her shopping with Jeff. After shopping Jeff, Jenni, Vanina and Shannon grab a bite to eat. Shannon launches into a Shannon story about having to feng shui Sophie’s room because her bed was in the death position and it was making her cry. Vanina’s face during this conversation made me sort of fall in love with Vanina. Previously, my relationship with Vanina has been a bit distant, but now we have become much closer. Jeff explains that sometimes there is only one right place for a bed and if that is the death position, then so be it.
I know what you are thinking. Is my bed in the death position? Click this link to find out. I kind have one foot in and one foot out of the death position. My headboard is not against a wall, it’s catawampus in a corner which kinda points to the door but not directly so I think I am okay. I do have a large piece of art with glass that is kind of reflective so I’m probably fucked with that. Thank God I don’t sleep with my head under a window because my liver has enough trauma in its life without adding any more.
Shannon had a party with the housewives that didn’t end well shortly after moving in. It didn’t end well. Shannon went off with them.
On the ride home, Jeff admits to Jenni that he is nervous about how much time the baby is going to take up and where he will find the time.
Oh God. It’s a Zoila montage. I CAN’T. I’m already all weepy and under the weather! Zoila says she loves Jeff, but she has to move out sometime. She can’t stay there her entire life. She’s lived there at least 12 of the 16 years she has worked for him and all seven and a half years that Gage has lived with Jeff. This is so sad. I think the viewers are sadder than Jeff or Zoila.
Then they show us demolishing her room. It;s only three months until the baby’s due date. They have to get the nursery done.
Jeff suddenly tells Gage that they have to buy all the nursery furniture. He brings Jenni and Vanina and Meghan Weaver with the big beaver with them. Gage was hoping this would have been a couples shopping outing. But he seems okay with it.
Jeff wants to buy like three of everything. Jeff makes fun of Gage for his nesting and sudden desire to cook. Who knew you could buy a battery operated shusher? Jenni Pulos, that’s who. My spell check doesn’t even underline the word shusher. I need to remember that for the next time I murder someone in a game of scrabble. It’s a good seven letter word.
Gage and Jeff say they are not bickering as much. Gage says Jeff has become a lot more patient. They are moving in the right direction.
There were all kinds of problems with the structure of the nursery. Now they feel like they have even more structural issues to address in the entire house. Gage has a theory that Jeff is continuing the chaos of construction to avoid the reality that a baby is coming.
There we end another all too short season. I need more Flipping Out and less housewives in my life.
EDITED: To add the penis bed that that chick with the Petmato sleeps in. What are we going to do with her?
This is BAD Feng Shui.
