That’s Our Girl

This past week has been devoted to getting back into the “normal” rhythm of my life after two glorious weeks of fun and playing with my girlfriends/frissy in New York and Vermont. That meant wrapping my head around the idea that Bella, my alternate personality from New York City/Vermont, was not about to do any of the work around the house…No, she took one look at what all Virginia does and said “call me when it’s time for happy hour!!!” With that, I decided I better just grab this bull by the horns and get started cleaning, cooking, doing laundry, and getting “mom’s” taxi service up and running again..

On Wednesday, the weather was cold, like 55 degrees cold when I left to take my daughter, Shantel, to school. I had on long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and a jacket. I told Shantel while she was getting ready that it was cold outside and there were 45 mph wind gusts. She just kept saying “I know, I heard the news” so I didn’t say anymore about it. When Shantel came out in her little short shorts and tank top, I thought to my self “OMG girl, you are going to freeze your ass off for sure.” But, I kept my thoughts to myself…

When we arrived at school, I couldn’t stand it anymore so I said to Shantel, ” everyone I see walking around this campus are wearing long jeans, boots, jackets, and even hats…they are going to think you are a crazy person walking around in short shorts and a tank top…” Shantel never missed a step walking beside me when she smiled and said “I don’t care, what have any of them ever done of any significance in their life that gives them the right to judge me?” I cracked up and said ” Bella would agree completely with you, but since she isn’t here, I would have to say we don’t know do we…perhaps they have done a lot of significant things, I guess it depends on your definition of significant…” Shantel said “well, if it bothers you, why don’t you let Bella out?”

That’s our girl, and I’ve missed her… 🙂

Stay Tuned!
