I am making the trip to my sister's. We are leaving around noon and it's a 5 hour drive without stops.
To say I am anxious would be an understatement. My DH convinced me that I would most likely regret not going more than I may regret going. I am not sure if he is right but I am willing to find out. I have not written any letters yet. I can't seem to manage cohesive thoughts right now. I guess if things don't go well, I will just mail them later.
Below is a picture from my son's wedding 5 years ago. On the left is my brother Chris, who I have not seen since this was taken. He will be there for a few hours on Saturday. Next is my sister Kathy and her daughter Katt, both of whom I saw for about an hour 2 years ago when my grandson was born. Finally we have my mother. I saw her last almost a year ago, at my grandson's first birthday party.
My sister and my mom are very close. They talk at least weekly, if not more. I am the oldest, but my sister is just 11 months younger than me. My brother is 3rd out of 4. My youngest brother Dennis, who is not in this picture because he left the reception early, will not be at my sister's. He and his family are vacation. My relationship with him is a story for another blog, I think.
