Around 6 a.m. I awoke to my sister Erin's dog Bubba barking. I thought, Silly dog is barking at leaves! I lay in bed for a moment and decide I need to use the bathroom. I stumble over children on the way to the bathroom and take a peek at my phone to see what time it is. 6:05 a.m. I blink to the bright phone screen and what's this? I have a new text that arrive at 6:02 a.m. from my sister Rachel, who lives in Hawaii, where it's only 3:02 a.m.
Rachel: You out shopping?
Me: No sleeping lol
Rachel: Let me in its cold outside
Me: Lol here??
Rachel: Yes! Shhhhh
So I grab my mom's purple robe that makes me look like a fleece hippopotamus and head for the front door. Danny says, "Where are you going?" As if he should know, I reply, "The door!" as I fly out of the room.
There was my sister, Rachel, her hubby and her 6 kidlets. Black Friday suddenly got more awesome than Thanksgiving.
I am thankful for sisters.
