Today is Sister #1's birthday. Happy birthday to you. We exchanged gifts when she was here visiting in August--our spa days were our gifts to each other. Zoe and I called her this morning. She hadn't gotten my card yet. Damn. I need to be better with my timing for this international mail stuff. I'm a shitty human being.
I wish I was with my sis on her b-day. Zoe wanted to know why we weren't going to see her for her party. It made me sad. It made my sister sad too.
