My sister Nancy has been out of town for a few days and has asked me to "blog sit." How brave of her, considering she has this post scheduled for Friday.
Nancy is the the biggest instigator of practical jokes in our family. She is the queen of starting food fights, especially with cake. She loves to rile up the little ones, load them up with sugar and then say "See ya, I gotta go now." Oh yeah, all the little ones love her. But no one loves her more than I do.
While we were growing up, Nancy was my pain in the butt, always taking my things, tattle tale sister. It wasn't until I moved out of the house that we actually became "friends." After my first child was born she was my only trusted baby sitter. When my second child was born she stayed with me for two weeks and I cried when she had to leave. She has continued to be the one I can always rely on and trust to always have my back. I envy her quick wit, her sense of humor, her organizational skills, her ability to laugh at herself, to take chances, and her persistence to fight for her beliefs. I may be the "older" sister, but she is the "wiser." She is the one who puts the "fun" in our dysfunctional family.
