So, questions 5 and 6 of the Personal History questions~
Question 5, “Do you have siblings? Write about them.”
Well, okay. Yes. I have two sisters and a brother. I love all three of them very much. One of my sisters just moved here and it is so nice having her around. She loves Christmas like I do, so I bet this holiday will be awesome! She is also crafty. I hope we can get together to craft every once in awhile! My other sis and I do not talk much, but we get on just fine. She is in Massachusetts, and I really should be better about keeping in touch.
My brother … I miss him. He works a LOT. We don’t talk much. I must change that, too. He and his gal just moved to Illinois, for work. I do talk to my sister-in-law every now and then. I feel like I will never see him now that they have moved. My brother and I are alike in SO many ways. He sounds like my dad. They have the same voice. We have the same feet. And the same eyes. And the same sense of humor. He is totally the guy version of me.
They are all amazing folks. I have amazing nieces and nephews (who mostly all have their own kids now, too) and well, I am just really grateful to have them all in my life. <3
Question 6, “Where did you grow up? What do you remember about this place?”
Lort. We moved around a lot when I was a kid. Each of the places we lived holds a special place in my heart. I would be here all day with this question. I guess I will just stick to where I lived while in High School. We lived in Dartmouth, Ma. We lived on the water. Next to a park. I had the BEST friends ever. I was, and still am, very lucky. I made awesome memories in those years. Hanging out in the park all day. And all night. Parties. Sleep overs. Camping trips. Some times I miss it very much. But, like everything else, it is all so different now.
I am still friends with every single one of those people from that time in my life. Trips home are jam-packed with seeing everyone. My memories from those times are what puts a smile on my face when times get tough. It wasn’t always easy, that whole ‘growing up’ bit, but my friends saw me through, (as did my parents!) and I really do have some of the funniest and best memories ever! I could fill a book!
