I had to work yesterday all day. And then I got drunk after work, so I completely dropped the ball on writing a Happy Birthday Post to my sister. So today I’m going to take some time and do what I should have done YESTERDAY.
My sister, my biggest oldest sister is 40 now. Well she’s not the “biggest” sister. That would be me. I can’t choose favorites when it comes to siblings because I have two sisters and two brothers, so I can’t say that she’s my “favorite” without my other sister getting mad.
Growing up I got to share a room with my oldest sister. Well I got to have my bed in her room. I think this was because she and my other sister didn’t get along very well, but I don’t know for sure. I just knew that it was an amazing room that I was really only allowed to go in when it was time for bed. (These are my own memories, it might be different…) Anyway! I remember she had posters of Micheal Jackson on the ceiling above her water bed. She had stuff in the closet that I was not allowed to touch EVER. But I did. I was really good at putting things back exactly the way I found them. I loved her Micheal Jackson doll and her Sasha doll that would probably be worth millions by now had a dog not gotten a hold of it.
I think my favorite memory was when I got sick one time, she let me sleep in her bed. It was probably the best sleep I had during that time. It was comfy and felt like I was sleeping in the ocean.
I was a fourth grader when she graduated from High School. I remember my other sister and I sneeking drinks from our drunken aunts and uncles. I remember going for rides in her Charger and I could never place the wonderful smell of her car but I always liked it. And when she moved away from home I loved being able to go and stay with her in her apartment, it was always a great adventure to be in Bend with out my mom or dad.
I remember when she moved back home. With my nephew. Who LOVED me. And I loved him too obviously.
There are so many memories I could write out. It would take forever.
My oldest sister might be the best sister I have.
But don’t tell my other older sister.
One time she told me that it always snows on her birthday. And you know what? Yesterday I looked out the doors at work and there it was…our first snow of the season.
My whole family is going to be here NEXT WEEK. I am beyond excited about this. This is a momentous occasion. This house is going to be full of my family and I’m going to love every minute of it.
Happy Birthday My Oldest Sister. I can’t wait to give you a big hug next Wednesday!
