I was six years old when my youngest sister was born, and growing up, I'm ashamed to say I didn't have much use for a pesky baby sister.
But now that we are women, we joke that we are twins separated by six years, because not only do we look alike, we have lots of similar thoughts. There are so many days we show up at work wearing almost the same outfit, color coordinating on accident!
We live down the street from each other and share the same obsession, er, I mean hobby: garage sale shopping. We love to go out on a weekend and search for treasures. Today is a big sale day and it's so big, she has gotten a babysitter and we aren't going to say the garage sale words in relation to where Mommy and Oh-Cho are going, because if we are big garage sale shopping nuts, her kids are even bigger ones!
We've been planning this day for months and the closer it's gotten, the more excited we've gotten. I don't know about her, but I've got a huge selection of quarters and one dollar bills, burning a hole in my bag!
Let's get our sale on, Lisa! It's going to be a great hunting day!
