Me, Myself and ...My sister

So, I like myself...
I used to struggle with that, but in recent years I’ve really gotten over it, so I was like, hey, I’ll do a blog post on the awesomeness of me! yay!
I like how passionate I can get over the stupidest things. When I get ‘into’ something, I always fall in fast and deep.
Conversely, I also like my ability to multi task. I can usually juggle three or four vastly different projects/endeavors in a day.
I like how excited I still get about the holidays. The youngest kids and I always get the Christmas spirit so bad. I’m always trying to incorporate new family traditions. The problem with this is that Donna is old enough now to remember last years and hold me to them. It’s getting overwhelming: “When are we going to make Christmas ornaments? Aren’t you going to decorate the apple tree for the animals? When are we going to make the cards?”
I guess that’s where the ability to multi task comes in handy. ;)

When I paused to consider the areas I’d like to improve, I realized Annie had all those traits I am missing, so then I thought, you know, we’re sister’s, we’ll always be sisters—maybe I’ll just continue sharing those qualities with her and make it easier for myself. ;) (And since we share everything else, mine as well share a blog posts with her as well!)

Seriously though, Annie’s got so much discipline. Somehow her routines always stick without being overly dogmatic about it.
She always overly optimistic, even when we were fishtailing about to go off the road last year, she was in the passenger seat going, “it’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay!”
If there’s a short cut to be had, Annie won’t take it. If the guitar solo could be better with an extra riff, she’ll practice it all afternoon until she gets it.
We compliment each other so well, that when I find myself out and about without her, I’m lost (literally, since she normally does the directions).

I love how she's always seeking adventure. New places, new people. Yet she doesn't seem to get bored with the same sights around here either. 
This place, where a river enters Lake Superior, became one of Annie's favorite hang out places this summer, especially after we discovered an eagles nest in the top of the pine tree! (look close).

She's Donna's favorite sister, not for the least of which reasons are the recent string of books Annie's read to her.
 (Remember this picture from the Donna book?)

The best is when we’re playing music. We communicate so easily with little glances and grins, the rest of the band can’t keep up with our telepathy. ;)

I guess what I’m saying is, two is—in this case—better than one.
