No therapy like retail therapy

Last evening, Sharmila brought the girls back from school and the girls could barely contain their glee at the prospect of two unscheduled holidays. (Fulton county has closed schools Tue and Wed due to inclement weather – which in Atlanta-speak after the scare of the previous snowmaggedon roughly means “some clouds have been spotted over Birmingham, Alabama” ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

In any case, the girls were rejoicing and Sharmila was getting really mad at the thought that she would be again stuck at home with the kids. So, some mild form of caterwauling ensued between Tasha and her – she demanding that we go somewhere for the weekend and Tasha wanting a “staycation”.
Having been burnt before, I stayed completely out of the fray. There is no good that ever comes out from me getting in the middle of a fight between Tasha and Sharmila. But it was starting to get heated up.

Trust Nikita to calm things down. She gave Sharmila one of those hugs with “mommy wommy” words and said “We will go shopping this weekend”! Incredibly enough, it worked! Tasha also wanted to join them for shopping!!! There was total harmony after that!

I went back to my room realizing that perhaps I am the one who came thru most damaged in a fight that I did not have a dog in at all!!!

    I don’t know. But here is what I think. If buying stuff releases the stress, why not return the goods after the stress is over? That way, nobody loses ๐Ÿ™‚
