So, I have 5 sisters. Fiance has 3. Just yesterday, I was crying and overwhelmed about how out of all 8 of these girls, not one has asked to help, if there was anything they could do.
So he says, “Why don’t you call [your brother’s live-in-girlfriend]?”
I mean, I’ve met her several times, but I don’t really know her that well. I was resentful that she had such a solid place in the family because she lived in the state with them, and I didn’t, I felt like an outsider. But I didn’t dislike her, I just didn’t know her.
And you know, she is so freaking sweet. We had a nice talk, and she offered anything she could do to help (including going to Old Navy for flops this weekend!) I realized that she’s only two years younger than I am, while my other sisters are up to 14 years OLDER, so it’s nice to have someone in the family who is that much closer to my age.
Just nice to discover that today, and it makes me feel so much better, that at least one sister is willing!
