The twins, Dennis and Denise, now 50
Having fun at the Casino with my brother Chris and I blogging into the night Dinner at the Japanese Restaurant
As my sister stated in her blog, this week has gone by way too fast. A lot of memories have been shared. Tears have been shed. Laughs, until we cried. We have eaten until we almost popped! Told many stories and old jokes! It was a week of emotions. Through all of this, we had quite a bit of drama...if you have been following my sissies "C" blog, you may know of her relationship with her daughter and our middle sister. Well, throw all that in the mix, with us, me and my brother coming up, and LET THE DRAMA BEGIN!! It wasn't much, but it was enough to make my oldest sister Chris, you all know her as "C" go into a tail spin with worry. She wanted this week perfect! She worried the whole time that something would happen almost to the point of sickness. Poor thing. But she has always been that way. Always the mom to all of us, looking out for each of us and making sure we were taken care of. I tried so hard to make peace between the two sisters, and the mom and daughter. And even Dennis tried. Between both of us, I think we did good. We patched it up, at least for the week. I don't know if it will go beyond that, that will be up to them. We have decided that life is way too short to waste it on bickering over small petty little crap. We all came together there and it is much to rare an occasion for us to argue and gripe over NOTHING major. STUPID STUFF!! So let this be a lesson to all you bloggy buddies, take a point from us. There is nothing worth arguing over, NOTHING that is so important that should keep you away from family. Now....put down that coffee, or put aside your computer, and make that call. You know the one, make up with that family member you have not spoken with for the last 10 years. The one that you don't even know WHY you are not on speaking terms with. Life is too short. Be the mature one. If something happened to you or your loved one, God forbid it, one of you would never be able to forgive the other. So please, don't wait. Do it now. While you have the time. Life is precious. Time is flying by, and love, well, tell them you love them. It is not said enough. And this time, say it like you mean it. I love you, Toone. Je t'aime.
