WHAM!!!

27 February 2012

me & my sister.

yes, i know i'm slacking.
i was supposed to blog the minute we got back from NYC, but i had a NYC hangover.
and of course it lasted like a week and then WHAM!!!

not only did i just spend the most incredible weekend with the hubby, but he had a trick up his sleeve.
a BIG one.

he was VERY sneaky.
sneaky in that he had been telling me for a couple weeks that he needed to help his bachelor best friend with something late on a friday night.
he was acting a little funny this past friday, but i just went with the flow.
{after 12 years, you kinda just know when to not ask questions.}

so then at around midnight, as i'm laying on the couch, i see MY SISTER walk through the door.
my baby sister.
the sister that i haven't seen in 15 YEARS.

why 15 years?!?!
well to make a long story short, my daddy remarried after him & my momma divorced.
from that new marriage my brother & sister came into the world.
a few years later, there was a nasty divorce and my stepmom moved herself and my siblings all the way across the country.
so we three siblings were basically forced to grow up apart.
{rachel=georgia, siblings=colorado.}
it's been very hard not seeing them basically our whole lives and it's something i hardly ever talk about.

so back to the happy part . . .
my sister walked in the door, i took a doubletake, got off of the couch, walked across my livingroom, hugged her and sobbed like a baby.
yall know the sobs i mean, right?!?!
the ones where you kinda sound like you can't breathe and the only noise you hear is comparable to a barking seal. <--yep. that one.

let it be known: I HAVE THE BEST HUBBY IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD!!!
not. even. joking.

so although i really wanna show & tell about new york city and my new projects . . .
i have ONE WEEK to be with my baby sister.

ps - this pic was courtesy of a cell phone, so don't judge it too harshly.

Great story Rachel, heartwarming. Enjoy your time with sis this week. I told my parents once the best gift they ever gave me was my sibs. I have a twin sister, older sister, and older brother. They all rock!

That's awesome. I have a sister that I haven't seen in 3.5yrs and even that feels too long. She has chosen to estrange herself and her family from the rest of us though, which makes it super hard, but I think I would sob like you if my sister ever walked through the door.

Annie said...

This brought a lump to my throat and I don't even know you!! I live in France so am away from all my family in the UK. We haven't seen anyone for two years now and that's bad enough so I can only imagine how you feel after 15 years. Enjoy your week together and hopefully it won't be another 15 years before you meet again. Hugs Linda

No matter how long, sisters are always sisters.

CitricSugar said...

Yeah, that's a kick-a** surprise. You are totally allowed blog-vacation regardless of what's happening in your life but I think we'd kinda judge you if you didn't soak up every moment of your week with your sister! :-)

Great story.

You must be one special lady for him to go to all of that trouble -- it's a given he's a keeper! How exciting.

Awesome! I bet you two fell right back into laughing and talking as if it had only been 15 days since last seeing each other. ;p

Yep, your hubby is extremely special. It probably made his heart swell to see the two of you together. ;p

I can also understand how hard it is to get together over all the miles-- our family is spread out across the US as well. So glad you got to spend time and make memories.
