T minus two days!

Just two days until Hurricane Stacy (aka, my little sister) blows into town!  She'lll be here Monday morning, which is actually perfect timing- Monday happens to be Dad's 66th birthday.  She'll be here for a full week, but only staying with us until Thursday morning.  We'll take her to her friend (and ex sister-in-law) Kari's place in Fort Lauderdale, where she'll stay until her flight home on Sunday.

This is actually a good thing, in my book.  The less I see of my sister, the more I love her.  Too much time together does us NO favors whatsoever.  And there will be plenty of time, in those four days.  It has rained every single day here for close to a month, every afternoon between 2 and 3 the sky just opens up, and it's still supposed to go on this week.  That means no sending sis off to the pool so I can get rid of her for a while.

It's not that I don't love her, because I do.  SOmetimes I even like her.  But we just aren't great at spending too much time together.  IF we weren't family, we certainly wouldn't be friends, at least I don't think so.  I'm just going to concentrate on how great this wil be for Dad- he misses her terribly.  They talk on the phone almost every day, and I know he's anxious to see her.  Her visit will certainly be the best birthday present for him.  (Not that the Homicide: Life on the Street DVDs I've bought for him are shabby!)
