What's so special about today?

You could say that today is special because, as I learned over at "As the crackerhead crumbles", today is Puppy Bowl VI. Or, if you are a sports fan you could argue that it's because of the Super Bowl. While I realize that either one of those could be very important to you and cause for celebration, that's not what makes today so special.
Today is special because it's my sisters birthday. Yep, that's right. I won't tell you how old she is just in case she's sensitive about her age, but I will tell you that I turned thirteen 42 days after she was born. Hey, I just realized that in 42 days I'm going to be 48.
Anyway, my sister and I never really got to know each other all that well. My parents were divorced when I was around 10. My mother and Tanyia's dad were living in Florida when she was born, and I was living with my father. Yes we have spent time together over the years here and there but never to the extent that we should have. Even though we haven't shared the bond that most sisters do we have quite a bit in common both good and bad :) It's unfortunate that we live so far apart now. Phone calls, emails and blog comments just aren't enough sometimes.
So Tanyia, Happy Birthday to you. I hope that today is as special as you are.
 
Why not stop over and Wish Tanyia a happy birthday at surviving motherhood...barely

Woo Hoo!!! I got a very honorable mention! Well, at least my blog did, and that's good enough for me. Yeah, I just knew sucking up to Duke was going to pay off. By the way, after doing the math, your sister is 25 today--right?

Jen said...

Well so much for your *cough* discretion, she has her age posted on her blog for the world to see (and it doesn't even say 29 *grin* :o)

Love the picture you put together!!!Awesome

Audrey said...

Luckily we can all do the math :)
Happy Birthday to your sister!! I will be 48 this year too, but still think I'm 25 LOL
Oldest son turns 20 just before my birthday, might be hard to convince him that I gave birth to him when I was 5.
Hope your sister has an awesome day!

Donna said...

Roschelle sweet post for a sweet sis

FishHawk it was Duke's idea to mention you. Um she can't be 25 if I still have to be 48

Jen I thought of that after I wrote the post :) Oh well.

Gayle thanks I didn't have much to work with

Audrey how about that we're the same age with the same mentality

Donna always

Beaded tail I'm sure she will :)

Ratty said...

This is a nice post. It's good that you can still have a relationship with your sister even though you've been so far apart.

Sheri said...

Great scrap page and I hope your sister has a wonderful birthday!

Tanyia said...

Ann... you leave FishHawk alone! I can be 25 if FishHawk says so dammit! lol Although I still act like a petulant 16 yr old most of the time, just ask my poor husband hehe.

Thank you for the birthday wish! :) I am glad that as we get older we are at least getting to know each other more cause you are a pretty ok broad! lol

Than you for the wishes!

junezach said...

I didn't realized that you and Tanyia are sisters. :D

It's so nice of you Ann to give your sister a very special wish.

Happy Birthday Tanyia! Cheers to both of you! ;D

Mee2 said...

Happy Birthday to your Sis!! What a sweet dedication. And I love the scrapbook pagey thingy. Just so you know, my birthday is coming up towards the end of the month and I'll expect something just as nice. Even if we're not sisters . And didn't know each other before a week or so ago.

Mee2 said...

Your G rating is still down there on the right hand side. And you're not boring. I tried to keep my gutter mouth off of my blog at first, but my posts sounded stiff and fake. It was almost impossible for me to write a post that I actually felt good about, like I knew I was getting my message across. It just wasn't me, ya know? I think what you do on this blog is perfect though. The language you have here is just right for what you're writing about. :o)

Ann said...

Miawa, I hope she enjoyed it

SGR oh cool, Duke is very excited. I'll be emailing you in a jiffy

Ratty yes it is

Sheri thank you, me too

Tanyia, why? do you have a thing for FishHawk?...lol and by the way you're an ok broad too. :)

junezach yep she sure is

Mee2 hmm well I'll need to know the exact date :) You're right the rating is still there, I took a few things off and thought that was one of them. Believe me there have been times when I've felt like using a few choice words...lol
