Since my sis Sherry is not comfortable airing all her dirty laundry to the whole world, I will happily do it for her! Don’t panic Sherry; I don’t get that many hits on here per week. This weekend she brought her family out here to hang out with me and mine. Nothing is quite like a sister, you don’t have explain yourself, and they just understand you and your weirdness. I should have a sentimental picture of us cheek to cheek here, but I don’t. This was a camera-less weekend.
The boys, (er husbands) graciously took the kids for Saturday afternoon, so we could do something we rarely do together. Shop. At Pottery Barn we found the most adorable ceramic coffee pots. We ooded and aaahhed. But we really didn’t need them. BUT, we discovered that neither of us had bought the other a birthday gift this year. So we bought them for each other. And so in my personal budget the coffee pot will go under the General Ledger as Gifts not Unnecessary & Unpractical Decorations. Yea!
Later that evening we filled two Fix n Mix bowls with warm water and soaked our feet. We did foot soak, foot scrub, foot mask, foot cream, the whole works. The next night we could figure out why the popcorn had a slight perfume taste. No No No. Oh yes, it was seasoned with Footloose and Fancy Foot Fizz with Chamomile and Lavender extracts.
So, it was a great weekend for me. You may want to keep Gene & Freddie in your prayers, it’s not easy being married to a “Mullet Brat”. But we dutifully remind them, that they were not forced to choose us, and deep down they must admit that they like us. And we have given them some cute children. Speaking of children, I could do a whole post on Freddies’ children, but I’ll save it for another time.
Well, gotta run now. Enjoy your week! And give your sister a hug, there’s no other relationship like it.

Loved the post and No NOTHING beats sister times.
yep, with sisters its ok to be lame or annoying or bratty…is that all the badder it gets on sherry? post something shocking. 🙂
The best part was buying birthday gifts for each other, so you can get what you want. Sounds just like something my sister and I would do. I wish she would be close enough to hug.
