NaBloPoMo--Day 3, 4, 5

Do you have siblings?  What are they like?

I have a younger sister and a half brother.  I didn't grow up with my brother so I really don't know much about him other than that he is a good man, a loving husband, and a great father.  I wish we could have known each other more when we were growing up.  It would have been nice to have a big brother.  I do have him now though and that's what counts.

My sister and I were very close growing up.  We spent a large part of our childhood and adolescence living pretty far out in the country so there were many times that we were all we had.  I love my sister dearly.  She is a kind and giving soul.  So willing to sacrifice herself for others.  I worry about her because I think many people might try to take advantage of her kindness.  Don't get me wrong though.  She's no pushover.  She's just a very soft-hearted person, sometimes to her detriment.  She has always been there for me and I could not have asked for a better little sister.  I will always be proud of her and she will always hold a top spot in my heart.

Saturday and Sunday...free writing


I'm combining Saturday and Sunday because, as usual, I'm behind on this blog post a day thing.  I really must force myself to start writing these in the morning.  Then I can't let the day get away from me.

What a weekend! I went to see The Woman in Black on Saturday.  Wow! A great movie.  Very gothic, atmospheric, and creepy.  I was on the edge of my seat and hiding my eyes the entire time.  Daniel Radcliffe was very good in it.  I think he has a brill career ahead of him.  I also was supposed to be participating in a read-a-thon, but I did not do well on it at all.  Maybe I need to have a self-imposed read-a-thon by myself.  Something to consider.

How about that Super Bowl?! So thrilled that the Giants won.  I was going to have to join a convent if that Hail Mary pass would have hit its mark.  Thank goodness it didn't.  If I had to hear anymore Tom Brady this or Tom Brady that, I don't think I could have stood it.  LOL  In all though, it was a great game and I though Madonna's half time show was excellent (with the exception of Nikki Menaj, that is).  That woman is amazing for her age.  She's still got it, even after all these years.

  1. It's great to hear that you've got such a supportive relationship with your siblings. I have a (much younger) brother, but we were pretty much raised as only children and I often wonder what it would have been like if things were different (story fodder, of course).

    I agree Madonna is amazing, though no Super Bowl for me. But you say "she's still got it". I would say there is something in her that is growing actually. She's actually getting it as she develops herself. And I hope to be half and self-possessed and energetic as she is when I get to be her age.

I apologize for comment moderation, but I seem to get a ton of spam so I'm afraid it's unavoidable.
