Character Development: Sister

I introduced you to my sister in another post, but today I thought I would tell a little more about us.  On our own, we are super funny and awesome... but together, we're a force to be reckoned with!   And yeah, I know I shouldn't end a sentence like that... but I did... so go away grammar police (cough...Joy...cough).

My sister and I were not always the close friends we are now.  When she was younger, she sure looked cute, but she was evil... and a biter.

But when I went to college, all that changed.  I'm guessing it was a whole... distance makes the heart grow fonder... sort of thing.  And now, she's my absolute best friend.

She has grown into a beautiful woman, wife, and mom.

She's completely hysterical, and one of the biggest dorks I know.  And don't ever question her knowledge of Doctor Who or Sherlock.  She will be right!

One of my favorite things about my Sister, is that we can just sit and exist together.  There's no pressure to even talk.  We have been known to sit for hours on Skype just doing stuff.  She'll knit or read her mommy forums, I'll sit and chat or play Farmville.  But we're happy, cuz we;re together.

I don't know how I would cope if Skype/Facetime did not exist.  In 2009, my parents moved to FL and my sister and her family moved with them.  This was a big change for us.  We would spend every Friday together.... and sometimes the whole weekend.  During the week, she would pack up my niece, and come spend a few days with me... I got to see her all the time.  Then poof, she was gone.  It was quite the transition. 

But we have figured out how to make it work.  Thank the Lord for wi-fi!!  Now she can even do fun things with me, even if she can't physically be here. 

So even though we are miles apart, we grow closer every day.  And I wouldn't have it any other way.  I love her.  I'll always be there for her.  And she will always be the best sister I could want or need.  I wouldn't trade her for anyone.  I wouldn't let anyone take her from me.  She's mine..... get your own.

Til next time....

Miss me?

I can't believe it's been 2 years since my last blog post. Time really does fly by... more so the older I get!  I'm gonna try this blogging thing again. Not so much because I feel that I have anything super extraordinary to share with the world, but rather because it was something I enjoyed doing. So stay tuned, fun and excitement is never too far away.
