Today I am very excited, for tonight I go to the airport to pick up my dear sister Lisa!! As she stated in her blog this morning -- growing up we weren't the best of friends. In fact, we fought a lot. I remember Mom and Dad would have to sit between us during church because we'd fight. Sometimes during the sign of peace when you shake hands, we'd give the MOST death-squeezing-hand shakes.

I remember when we'd fight, my Mom would be so sad. She would say every Christmas, "All I want for Christmas is for you girls to get along!!!!" She'd also say, "Someday when you're grown up, you will be best friends"

We'd roll our eyes.

Then I moved away to Tucson, and we realized we missed each other. We discovered black-berry-messenger. We found out just how much we did, indeed, have in common. And in the process of re-getting-to-know-each other....we became great friends!

So this weekend will be wonderful. We plan on taking a road trip up to Phoenix to see her friend who just had a gorgeous baby in December. I've mapped out a running path for us to take. We plan on doing some grilling. The weather will be in the 70's -- it will be a fantastic weekend! :)

Hope you all have a great weekend too!!

Ha, I kind of forgot about the death-grip hand shaking in church.

How about the fighting sessions when I taught you piano lessons... Yikes, that was awful. I am sorry I was such a pill!!

Can't wait to see you!!!

I am still laughing about the death grip during the sign of peace.
