It feels good to laugh

My sis PJ (aka Patti) arrived on April 1. It has been so incredibly FUN to have her home again!  😀

She was busy seeing her kids and grandkids the first week or so that she was here. Then husband left on April 9 to go turkey hunting in southern Oklahoma. That means sis and I have had the house to ourselves for a week. 

The first few days he was gone (Easter weekend), I had a terrible migraine and was down for a few days. She busied herself with more “kids and grandkids” time.  Then I perked up, and we’ve had a blast ever since!  I only had one critical work day, during which time she cleaned my garage.  Other than that—and tending to a few business tasks in town—she and I have stayed up late, eaten ice cream instead of “real” food when we wanted to, and laughed.  LOTS and LOTS of laughter! It feels good to laugh!

We’ve also put a big X on the calendar at the end of every day, knowing her departure date (April 27) is creeping closer.  😦 Next week, we’re taking my dad to southern Oklahoma to see my mom’s headstone before it is set. I imagine the moment we see it will be somber, but we’ll make the 3-hour trip as fun as we can anyway.

Having sis home for the first time since Mom died has been so healing for both of us, and we know that Mom is watching…and probably shaking her finger and telling us girls to “Behave!”  We aren’t listening!!!  😆
