Mostly Wordless Wednesday


While looking for a picture for Mostly Wordless Wednesday, I came upon this picture of me and my sister at my Dad's house in Costa Rica last December. I love this picture. It always makes me smile. And boy it shows me how long my hair was!!

Yvonne (although I call her Jackie for some unknown reason except that I am a freak and love giving people nicknames) lives on the other side of the country. You wouldn't think we are sisters because she is like 5 feet tall and 100 lbs. I am about 5 ft. 7 inches tall and don't even think I will tell you my weight but it is certainly a lot more than 100 lbs. But the funny thing is people always tag us as sisters because of our smile. I think that's about the only thing that we actually share look wise. We are total opposites on many things. She is the extrovert; I am the introvert. She is impulsive; I am more cautious. She is hyper; I am laid back. But we do share a lot in common as well. But I guess that's what sisters do. We always didn't get a long but now we do and what I like about our relationship is that she is probably the only other person in the world who has lived many of my same experiences. I have to admit that I always felt like the older sister and if you ask that evil girl, she will say I look older too. She is a little kooky but then so am I. Maybe it's in the genes, who knows. But I love her and her kookiness unconditionally. We are lucky that in our old age, we have remained very close. And I know that we will always be there for each other!
