|Anne & Barb|
We all walk for exercise as well so we went on walks every day. We had facials, we went to the movies, we shopped, we ate out and we laughed....usually over nothing. I guess it was time for me to go because the night before I left we all three almost lost our meal laughing at the dinner table while my brother-in-law and his mother looked at us like we had grown an extra head. I think it's something embedded in our collective DNA, a familial disorder that allows siblings to find the same thing hysterically funny while no one else finds it even remotely amusing.
They particularly do love laughing AT me. My mannerisms, my choice of words, my fondness of whistling, my "vigorous" nature as they see it. (Reluctantly, I must confess that part might be true, my husband has called me a bull in a china shop more than once.) But they provided their share of humor as well. We really didn't grow up together since they are 8 and 10 years older than me but we seem to find a lot of common ground these days.
It would have made my mom really happy to see us last week. She always thought "sisterhood" she bestowed upon us was one of her greatest gifts. So thanks Mom, we may not always have appreciated it but we do now!
