Sister Weekends

Posted at 5:29 am under Thought for the Day

Do any of you have Sisters? If you do, do you have a very close relationship?

I can’t imagine my life without my 3 SisterDears. They know all the worst things about me and they love me anyway! I live about 1500 miles away from them, but through the miracle of technology, we remain very close! Cell phones, email and blogs, gotta love it! Truth be told, with life happening everyday, school, sports, work…. something always happens so they can’t get together all that often. That is until I make my ‘annual trek’ up for our Sister Weekend! We all truly treasure our Sister Weekends.

I’ve been trying to decide when to go up this year. I usually go in July, but every 3-5 years I go up for Christmas. I wouldn’t want to completely forget how much I dislike snow and the bitter cold now would I? I finally decided! I have decided that this year I will go up for the Fall Foliage!! The last time I saw New England Fall Foliage was October 1993, and it was past its peak. So, I have decided to go up at the end of September this year. Plans are being made. Excited? Who me? Only completely!

We’re going to “do” Boston this year! Plans, we must make plans!! Faneuil Hall, The Paul Revere House, The Freedon Trail and Boston Common, the Old North Church, Bunker Hill Monument, the Museums… a Red Sox game!!! We’ll also do some sitting around the fire in our Norman hats sipping wine, listening to the piano and singing along in our relaxing clothes. Bliss!

Stock up the wine! Which restaurants shall we eat at? Decisions, decisions!

Oh, what fun we shall have!

Today is a very special day!

It is SisterDear4’s Birthday and her daughter/my niece’s Leann’s Birthday!

Happy Birthday, SD4! ~ Happy Birthday, Leann!

It’s also my beautiful gray boys’ Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Gandalf & Grayson!

Gandalf is 4 and Grayson is 5! Stop by and wish them a Happy Birthday!

7 Witty Remarks to “Sister Weekends”

    I wish I had sisters … or brothers. Being an only child can often be lonely, plus you have to deal with overprotective parents, and now the welfare of my dad has fallen on my shoulders, a tough thing being a single working mom who lives five hours away. You are very fortunate to have that wonderful sisterhood!

    You’re right about technology’s keeping us in touch. I haven’t seen my older son in nearly a year, so I’m grateful for unlimited long distance and web cams!

    This is awesome. I have a friend who does this with her sisters. Every year one of them plans the trip and they all go. I envy this. I have three sisters and they have all cut off contact with me.

    Sigh. No sisters here–oldest with two brothers. I do have a sister-in-law who is the only girl of 4 so we have each other but iit is not nearly the same.

    I am the oldest, with one sister and one brother. My sister and I are very close, but not as close as when we were younger and less busy. You are so right about them knowing all your faults and loving you still! Patty and I sign notes to each other “Your Favorite Sister” since there’s just two of us girls. It’s helpful to have a friend in the family who understands all the family dynamics.

    But I also have several close friends that are like sisters to me. Even if you don’t have biological sisters, or aren’t close with them, you can still have very close girl friends who serve the role as sisters.

    I also have 3 sisters. Only one lives far away,but that does not stop all of us from being close!! Our whole family is close.I also have 2 brothers :) and Mom.(Dad passed a few years ago)
    I feel sorry for families that do not get along.I have no idea what that is like .

    I’m like Heather – two younger brothers. I hang out with them, but it’s a lot different than having sisters. I do enjoy time with my mom. She has two sisters, and they have all stayed pretty close. Enjoy your time together!

    I have one brother and a couple friends closer then sisters! But I must tell you the long gray haired cat you have…WOW perfect image of our Spazz! When I played the little video our Spazz played like your cat too. I miss Mr. Spazz! The stories I could tell about him! And he about ME too! **wink-wink**
