First Annual Sister Fix Trip!
Well, it’s been one of those weeks. I left Ridgecrest early EARLY Wednesday morning and boarded a plane for Dallas. My sister (you know, the one I hadn’t sen in 20 years before we met up in July) met me there and drove me to my birth town–Duncan, Oklahoma. There we met up with a couple of cousins and had a fun night of laughing, reminiscing, laughing, singing, laughing… we MIGHT have laughed a time or six thousand. We spent Thursday and part of Friday visiting family (including a reunion of the remaining siblings–hadn’t seen each other in the same place at the same time for over 40 years!), and then off to Tulsa for shopping and dinner. HAD. A. Blast. I’ve never been shopping with my sister before. Just sayin’. Not. Once. Off to our parents’ house (haven’t all been together in one house since I was almost 8.
One of the fun things about this trip is that it’s supposed to be an annual thing. Since we’re sisters, we’re fixin’ to get our sister fix… you know, every year. Genius, I say!
But then last night, I drove 20 miles away to meet my assistant Christy! That’s right. CHRISTY. WOOT. After all these years, we finally got to meet each other. How awesome is that? Isn’t she adorable? I think I look as exhausted as I feel–not the most flattering picture of me–but you know what. I love it. Because we’re in the same place. She has a delightful family of darling children and a pretty cool husband too!
Alas, her vacation home is without wifi so our grandiose plans on working on the newsletter and this blog post TOGETHER kind of fell flat, but you know what? Who cares? WE HAD DINNER TOGETHER. Did I use that word together? Yeah. THAT!
