Sis 1 here . . .
So, Sis 2 alluded to our long time friendship/sisterhood. I thought I'd elaborate. Please keep in mind that I just finished a bottle of wine and am feeling very nostalgic tonight . . . especially after today's news. Did I mention that my mother advised me of her recent nuptials via a group email?! Oh yes, see the previous post.
Anyway, Sis and I have been friends/sisters since we were about 8 or 9 years old. We are so damn much alike, it's actually scary. We were inseparable for so many years, but unfortunately had some sort of falling out my senior year of high school. (Sidebar--we are 6 months apart in age, but a year apart in school. That whole age cutoff thing.) We didn't speak to each other for 25 years. She remained in the Midwest and I moved to sunny, Southern California (with the soon to be ex . . . see previous posts).
About 3-4 years ago, we caught up on Facebook. BTW . . . I love Facebook and I hate Facebook. We started talking again, and it was if the 25 years just didn't exist. We picked up where we left off. Another sidebar . . . neither one of us can actually remember what our falling out was about.
Once we started catching up, it was as if we never were apart. We now see each other at least once a year or if possible, more . . . hopefully, we'll be able to do even more in the future, but that's for another blog post.
So, it's kinda sad that we lost so many years, but . . . we've both developed independently and still maintain the same belief system as the other. We have automatically loved each others' children . . . instantly making them niece and nephews.
We're there for each other through our crappy marriages . . . mine that has started the last stages, just waiting for finalizing, and hers that is on a bumpy road. We travel together and enjoy the time we have together. God help you if you try to come between us. We've learned the importance of keeping those we love close to our hearts.
So, in the midst of the chaos and complaints, there is a light that is #Sistercasm.
Until the next time, keep it #sassyandsarcastic.
