My sister has moved home to California today.
I am really sad. She is my best friend and now I am not sure when I will see her :(
We spent all day Friday together....our last girls day for a while.
Let's see... we of course got some Starbucks. Then we went to Borders. Split some
nachos at a local Mexican Restaurant. Saw No Strings Attached....hilarious, loved it!!
Got a bowl from Chipotle for dinner. It was a fun day hanging out with Aarika.
She even slept with me last night because Tony is out of town. She kept my bed warm :)

I had to open at work this morning, so I told Aarika she had to come say bye to me one more time.
I am such a sap. So emotional. She stopped by about 8:30 or so. I tried really hard to hold back all my tears. I did pretty well...well for most of the good-bye. I teared up. She said my lip was quivering (totally didn't realize that). I have talked to her a couple of times today because the drive back home to California is 24 hours. About an hour ago they (mom and her) just entered New Mexico. Seriously Texas is the longest, most boring state to drive through.

I am going to miss her a lot. I don't think I have gone more than a couple weeks without seeing her. It is just a really weird feeling for the both of us. I know we will be ok. There is the phone and email.
It hasn't totally hit me that I won't see her in a couple days. I don't think I will realize it until maybe next weekend or so.

This is good for her. She needs to be back home. She needs to be with all her friends and in California. I am happy that she is able to move back home. She will soon be her happy giggly self again :)

Aarika, I love you. You know how much. I am going to miss seeing you all the time. Complaining to you. Looking at you and you know my thoughts. I can't even write about all our relationship, there is so much I will miss. But I will see you soon!! Real soon :-)

I feel for you. I know exactly how you feel. When we moved to CA last summer, I hated the thought of not seeing my twin sister every day. It's been rough, but it's slowly getting better. She's flying out to visit next month and I'm so excited! It's still hard though. I'll be praying for you! :)

Aw, this post made me cry. My Sister lives in West Virginia and I live in Massachusetts. I haven't seen her since 2007 but we e-mail each other every day (we both hate talking on the phone, LOL).

This is so sweet! I wish I had this close of a relationship with my sister.
Be strong, I'm sure you two will get through it :)
