Tonight I had 45 minutes in between the time I dropped my first son off at soccer and the time I needed to pick another one up. I hate driving all the way home because by the time I get there, it is time to get back into the car. I thought about shopping but quickly decided I really don't be needing to spending money so I did what I should have thought of first: stopped by my sister's house to hang with my family.
My sister and brother -in-law live particularly close to us and to one of the soccer practices. I love to visit my nieces and nephew when my own kids aren't around because they are stuck having to talk and play with me instead my boys whom they adore. I sat and helped little Jilly (6) on the computer, Brody (almost 2) and I made faces at one another giggling and sticking out our tongues and then Audrey (5) came and lounged on my lap watching her favorite cartoon on tv. And, I caught up with my sister, trading gossip and complaining about life stress. I love how sisters are always there to listen.
