I'm very lucky to have the sister that I do. Isabel may be younger than me (only by a little bit though), most times she takes on the role of the older sister. She always presents the logical and rational side of things whenever I fly off the handle. Isabel's always there with advice whenever I have a problem. She is a constant source of inspiration to me. She got into med school after only three years of undergrad (from where she graduated with High Distinction I might add). My sister has also been doing an amazing job of raising Lucas, often on her own as Mark has had to be away due to his stint in the military.
We were hoping that they would be moving closer to us, about 40 minutes away but we just found out they are actually going to be settling in Alberta which is about five hours away by plane! Ugggh! I get why they have to go out there but I wish they would have been able to settle down closer to us. I've had people say dumb comments to me again "Oh, you're losing your sister, huh?" I don't get why people have to open their mouths sometimes.
Just like Janet refers to Ontario as Evil Ontario because her sister is here, Alberta shall now be called Evil Alberta. I guess I better start to look at flights to see how much it'll cost to go out there. Life really sucks sometimes. I think I need some serious retail therapy.
