One would think....

..that if one's birthday was one day before one's sister's..one would actually ReMeMBeR to mention it in one's blog, huh?


DUH!
Yep. I'm the "one"...
And I feel must defend myself...a little..by saying I do have ADLD (Attention Deficit Lazy Disorder) and while my heart was int he right place...another thought came into my head and you know I can't do anything until I empty my head..

Oh, and I found some great NEW ...Oh, I'll get to that later....

Back on track.....hmmm.....oh yeah..Kathy's birthday.


Because she has ALwAys been older than me...I had to share my birthday with her when I was a kid.

And she was a teenager FOR-EVAH..or it seemed like she was at the time. So anyway, this is not about me...yeah......just like all those other birthday's...ah huh...

OK, so tonight I get "ThE cAlL"...you know, the one's that start by the middle sister saying, "Hi.... here......Kathy wants to talk to you.."

.....and hands the phone off to Kathy...

Unsuspecting me walks (or hula's) right into the trap...

me: Did you see Betty's blog about us Sullivan's??

she: yeah.. nice huh. All those great old pictures of all of us.


me: yeah..nice..how was your birthday?? smile smile smile

she: fine.{period} ( you know...as in........f.i.n.e.)...yes.. I noticed you wrote about your birthday and I got up and looked at your blog...and you wrote about ..........a CAT...and seeing your breath..??....

me: Oh crap! (actually I said that in my head) Um..yeah..about that.....it just struck me...I mean about the cat and all..ummm...sorry??.....!!

So, here's to my very favorite oldest sister Kathy..to whom I owe all the simple rules to live by, such as:

1. Keep your bathroom corners and floors exceptionally clean. Because when guests use the bathroom, they have nothing else to focus on...

2. If you get caught in the rain and your hair gets wet, DO NOT TOUCH IT! Let it dry then "fluff" with your fingers.


3. If you get up 1/2 hour earlier than AnyONe else in the universe you CAN get your make-up on and be ready to greet the world!


4. If you have just had your nails done, do not play volleyball, no matter how competitive your spouse may be.

5. A good sale is worth the drive. No matter the cost of gas. Or what state it's in.

6. Memorize the "points" for every restaurant in town...and everywhere you may be visiting.
Ever.

...and last, if you can't say something nice about somone..........uh...I forgot how that one ends...



Happy Birthday Kathy! You are an inspiration, a nifty dresser, a great grandma meaning "good" not "great" as in old...ah..er...), a good cook, a great joke teller, a good walker and the best OLDEST sister I have!!


I love you...and sooooory...
