Day 2 of Love



Day 2 of Love is all about my sisters. Even if they did put a running vacuum cleaner on my head, lock me out of the house with just a t-shirt and underwear on, and lots of other mean stuff. I can honestly say I wouldn't change a thing.

Lisa was older and growing up I really don't have many memories other then watching her play softball and volleyball. But as I am older and I have been able to get closer to Lisa. I really enjoy hanging out and talking with her. She is the one that I know I can always count on. She is dependable and will help me anytime she can. She is also a great Aunt to Virginia. What I love most about Lisa is she is leveled headed. She will tell you how it is and give you the best advice. When I found out I was pregnant with Virginia. Lisa was the one that made me feel the best. She gave it to me straight and let me know that she was there for me. Lisa was always the older sister that was there and as a kid I didn't pay much attention too, but  I hope as we both get older that we can grow closer together and have lots of fun stories to create.

Susan and I were always close since we were only two years apart. Now saying that we were close can also mean trouble. Growing up I was for sure the little sister that annoyed the crap out of their older sister. Susan was the one that I followed around the neighborhood and wanted to hangout with all the time. Susan was also the one that tortured me the most. She placed a running vacuum cleaner on my head, tried sticking my head in the toilet on many occasions, and was just the typical big sister. At the same time I always knew Susan was there to look after me and make sure no one messed with me. Susan was also one of the cool kids in school. I can't believe I just typed that, but it is true. Being Susan's little sister meant that alot of the older kids were nice to me and would talk to me in the hallway. Which was nice when you were just the little 7th grader or 10th grader. Susan and I played softball together since I was 8. That was always fun competing and trying to prove I was better then her in all sports. Even thou we were super close as kids. I have to say now that we are both grown and have kids. I really enjoy her more now then I ever did as a little kid. I talk with Susan everyday on the phone or skype. We both share stories of what our crazy kids have done that day. Susan has always been my protector and for that I love her.

So on Day 2 of Love I just want to say how much I am glad I had two great sisters growing up. I also know that they will both be the best Aunts to Virginia.
