I talked earlier this week about our vacation plans.
We’re driving to Alabama from our home in Texas.
I’ve very little idea what we’ll do while we are there…….because we’re going to visit with family.
Family I have not seen in over 20 years.
A nephew and 2 nieces I have never met.
My sister and father had a “between them” issue when I was 20 which resulted in an estrangement and my sister and I lost track of each other.
It’s a little weird. I’m a middle-first child. I’m my Father’s middle child and my Mother’s first child.
My half-sister is 6 years older than me. My brother is 2 years younger than me. I also have 2 step sisters.
When I was 13, my big sister was the coolest person I’d ever met….by far.
When I was 20, she was a full fledged adult and I was….. So Not an Adult yet. (That took another 6 years)
I’m excited, nervous, anxious, and did I mention excited?!
What if we don’t click in person?
What if our families don’t have enough in common.
So I’m twitchy this week. Nervous excitement does that to me.
