I've been pretty much awol this week because my sister is in town visiting. And man can that girl shop!!!!!
Not that I blame her. She lives in a rural community without many shopping options. But anyone who knows me knows that I am not fond of shopping!
Sure the bookstore, grocery store and thrift shops are fun, but other than that...let's just say that I buy multiples when I shop. If I find a top that I like, I buy at least four colors. Jeans...I buy several pairs. You get the idea.
My sister, on the other hand, was born to shop. She likes to go through every rack in a store and take a cart load of stuff to the dressing room to try on. What stumps me even further is that she actually enjoys the process! She loves trying on shoes and is thrilled with the two pairs of cute boots that she bought.
I know that many women love to shop, but I'm just not one of them. I love spending time with my sister, but it was ten hours of shopping on Tuesday and another six on Wednesday. Exhausting!
My sister and I are different, almost opposites in a lot of ways, but that's always made life interesting. We've never liked the same clothing, and growing up, we had very different tastes in boyfriends. She's a night owl, I'm a morning person. She's outgoing and I'm more reserved. I could go on and on. But in spite of all the differences, and maybe even because of them, we've always been close as sisters and that will never change.
Today was more laid back. We went to the museum and had lunch before heading out to a local farm so I could pick out my Halloween pumpkin. She's leaving Saturday and it will probably be next spring before I see her in person again. But we'll be burning up the phone lines every week between now and then!
