How can two people be so alike that it’s a little scary and be so different at the same time? I couldn’t wait to get my license and the girl just now decided that she wanted hers.
When the girl was little she had her own language….she went to speech in school and was held back a year because of it. All of her classmates are turning seventeen and she will be turning eighteen. It took me a long time to get over that but I did. Thank goodness it never bothered her and she has been an honor roll student for as long as I can remember. When I turned sixteen I immediately had a job and I have always a people person….the girl is a little afraid I think? When she knows you she is not shy but she is not a fan of conversing with people that she doesn’t know. “Stranger danger” is what she always says. We stopped at my Saturday morning coffee place after she took the test to get her permit and I think she is going to try and get a job there….they are opening a new location in a library that is almost done. It’s a step in the right direction..she has a heavy load this school year I only want her to work on the weekends when school is in session.
Once we finished with that we started our search for the perfect shower curtain…this will be harder than I thought. I really liked my shower curtain and was bummed that it is stained and has a tear…so here we are. I don’t know about you but we always have a plastic liner and then a fabric shower curtain….we may have to get an extra layer of plastic if we decide on a lighter fabric…. The girl found a plastic liner with the periodical table on it….so she can study while she is in the shower.
I didn’t “love” any of them so I will keep looking, the right one will show up. I found something at BB and B that I did love and I probably would have bought it if it was in stock….I love my salt lamp and my salt candle holders, this is new and different and makes me smile, hopefully they will get more in. I always have a coupon for that store.
The girl and I also stopped at Pier 1 to see what they had. I didn’t see anything I had to have but the girl immediately said “Mom we should get this for the new living room” when she laid her eyes on this…. I agree it is nice but I can’t envision it in my living room, it’s just not me…..but it’s her.
She wants these for her birthday for her new room? The bedspread will go nicely with her vintage Star Wars sheets as she pointed out to me. The bright blue she picked for her dresser will also match. I will of course oblige her….who am I to stomp on her style….even if I don’t get it? I never did find a coloring book.
Most of the time when the girl opens her mouth….my words come out. Her sense of style, however…..is all her own…….Zia
PS. I almost forgot…I had my six month follow up sonogram with that “lymph node”. I didn’t get worked up this time and he said that nothing has changed and to keep my mammogram that is scheduled for February. He didn’t seem worried about it……
