my sister came out for a week about 2 months ago and it was super fun! we stayed up late every night! one early morning before we finally went to bed we were so deliriously tired that we were super loopy. we were talking about our family and the things we remembered from when we were growing up.
i told her a story of when my older brother and i (we were like 8 and 11 years old) had seen these "his and hers" watches on tv, the kind with the digital hands. well, we thought they were the coolest things and we had to have them. so, we called in and ordered a pair, paying by c.o.d. (do you remember back when we could do those?) when they arrived we were so excited and we gave the delivery guy our cash and we were just happy as can be. they were totally cheap and were broken within a week!
well, the combination of our lack of sleep and the very late, or i guess i should say very early, hour sent us over the edge. we were laughing so hard we were crying at this silly story that wasn't even really all that funny! i love it when that happens, our faces were streaming with tears and we couldn't even stop laughing long enough to talk which made us even laugh/cry harder! when we finally gained some composure our stomachs were hurting and we just had to let out a big sigh and catch our breath! and then wonder, "why was that so funny??!!"
anyway, i came across this adorable picture of her with kawena and it made me think back to that trip and how much i wish we lived closer so we could have more nights like that! i love my sister so much! she is such a sweetheart. she is such a great example of genuine kindness and love. i wish a had more of her sweetness in me.
malia, miss you, love you and wish you were here. can't wait to see you in july! yea!
