This is just a vent post for me. I am honestly shocked by my big Sister. She and her husband have evolved into very dedicated party followers. My husband and I avoid political conversations with them...and they do live three hours away so it hasn't been hard to just "change the subject" on the phone. Every year we call each other on our respective birthdays and sing Happy Birthday. She has a lovely voice and I sound like some unidentified animal, lol, but we have not missed a year. Her birthday was on Election Day. Sigh. I called mid afternoon to "sing" and there was no answer. I called yesterday and the phone let me leave a message. "I'm at work...call me if you can stand to hear me sing...giggle." I didn't hear back. This morning I called. My sister said "I don't want to hear you sing. I don't want to talk to you. People like you have ruined out Country. Bye!" OMG! I'm in the state of shock. husband thinks she will call me within 24 hours to apologize. I think it will be over a week and maybe much longer. How did politics get so magnified in her mind that she would blame her baby sister for the future of the Nation? Eh Gods. DDD PS: NO, I swear, this is not a post about politics. It's about sisters!
