How sweet would it be to have a never ending supply of Mountain Dew....?
My thoughts last night before going to sleep.. random much? lol
So, My new roommate called today. I missed her call but she called Mom and talked to her. She has the same last name as me. Yeah, totally sweet, right?! =)
I'm stoked about this semester starting! These next 6 days cannot pass any sooner!
I've been trying to spend as much time with Kris as I can lately 'cause Mom pulled me aside one day about a week ago and said she was having a hard time with the idea of me leaving. I'm not going to be like super far away but still..
I think all the extra time has been helpful and if not, then hey, it's always nice to spend time with family and make memories.
Speaking of memories.... Last night I was in the shower... wait, first I have to explain the layout of our house a little... Kristen's closet is like right next to the shower in the bathroom by her room. In other words, KPs room and closet are like an upside down "L" and with the bathroom it makes a complete rectangle. The short part of the "L" is where her closet is and the shower is on the other side of the wall dividing the two. Make sense? Hope so..
So, as I was saying.. I was in that shower last night while KP was cleaning her closet when out of no where she knocks on the wall. Why? I don't know. But it reminded me of when we were younger and she and I had rooms right next to one another. It was just after we moved into the house we are in now and it was the first time we had ever been in separate rooms.
One night after we had been sent to bed (and were supposed to be asleep lol) I hear this knock on the wall that divided our rooms.. So I go to the wall and knock back. Then I hear her whisper from the other side, "Sissy, are you awake?" lol "I can't sleep."
Somehow from there we came up with an idea to communicate to one another by knocking on the wall. One knock was A, two was B, three C, and so on till we got to E and realized it was lame and probably not going to work. lol
Mom came in to each of our rooms shortly after and tucked us back in and probably got on to us a little for being out of bed, I don't really remember.
I think I was about 7 or so when all this happened but I doubt I'll ever forget it. A few details may slip over time but that bonding I felt with Kris that night will probably (hopefully) stay with me till we're both old and gray. =)
It's funny how she and I have gotten so close in these past few years when, and you can ask anyone who knew us, we used to like HAAATE each other!! It wasn't actual hate we felt for one another but from the outside I'm sure it seemed that way. People told us it was just because we were siblings but I beg to differ. I think it was mostly that we were girls and less than a year apart. That in itself brought out the competitive nature in both of us. Plus we had, and for the most part still do, the same circle of friends. That didn't help much..
I don't buy the whole, "it's because you are siblings" thing for a second. Rick and I have been like best friends for as long as I can remember. I can count on my hands the times he and I fought.. So no, it's not simply because we are siblings.
Gee, why did I even get on this topic??? *sigh* I fear I'm going to miss my little sister more than I would like to admit to. Thank goodness for cell phones and the Internet!
