HAPPY WEEKEND!


ohhhhh, alex. miss alex caught a cab to jfk this afternoon. boo hoo, boo hoo. as is customary, i began my sisterly duty of missing her desperately a full two hours before she actually left. you should have seen me, it was quite the spectacle. sighing dramatically in the kitchen, sighing dramatically at the duane reade (i was out of eye lashes), sighing dramatically at the playground . . . 

oh well.

when it was actually time for her to go, we put her in her cab and blew her kisses up the street, huck wearing nothing but a diaper. once the last of the tail lights disappeared around the corner, i marched us inside, put some clothes on the boy, did the dishes, then sat myself down and had a little pouting. i'm going to miss my baby sister. she's a good egg.

we're going to have a nice, quiet weekend in nyc. we'll have dinner with friends, we'll go on a nice family walk or two, we'll go to church, we'll eat lots of rice krispy treats. we'll watch a few more episodes of felicity. just us (homesick) chickens. cluck cluck.

  4. Sister missing is so hard. :( I had a nice sister visit in March and for at least the last whole day i was completely on the verge of tears.

  7. I've not been home in 4 yrs. I moved to Scotland and just haven't made it back to see my 4 sisters yet. One came to visit me last summer and when I saw her face at the airport I just cried. Then all her kids appeared and I cried harder. THEN when they all left I spent a few days crying and moping around. I miss them. Now, my mama needs to come visit me and I'll feel whole again.

  8. What a sad but lovely post! Sisters just have some special place in the heart, I think.

  9. Hope your sister is doing well now, since she's back to 'reality' in her hometown. Wishing her lots of best wishes and luck. Btw she's such a good aunt to Huck, he seems to love her alot. :)

  14. Your Sister is gorgeous, just like you! I always love when Brother comes to visit and my Sons eyes brighten up the whole time he is here :) I am sorry she had to leave already :( But maybe a Skype Date with her might be in Order, so you don't miss her too much! ;)

    Happy Weekend!
    xoxo

  17. i haven't had to miss any of my siblings for too long yet, and i'm dreading the day one of the four of them moves more than an hour from me, because i know it's going to happen. thank goodness for smartphones and long visits!

  18. oh Felicity! that show is my go-to when i'm feeling all weird and homesick-y too. i think it's the potent mix of keri russell's hair and her cozy sweaters?

  19. Oh wow. I definitely need to get me some old Felicity re-runs!

  20. i know the feeling of a good friend (sister) leaving - i wish your sister the best. love is never easy, and i know she'll figure out what's best for her and whoever her future mate may be if she's anything like her older sister :)

  21. Aww I've got one sister in London, and another in DC (although Cambodia for years before that) and i'd love to have them stay with me for a bit (although not under breakup circumstances) ... it's amazing how alike you both are ... hope you feel happier soon (and Alex too)

  24. Some years ago, the same styles would have needed images, but today, you can Abu Dhabi Website Design your mock-up entirely in-browser with CSS3, generating the same effect.
