Off to Lunch with the Sisters
My sister and sister-in-law and I try to get together for lunch midpoint between SIL's house and mine about every other month or so. SIL originally asked to start the tradition a few years ago when she was over whelmed with all her elder care duties and needed a more positive, optimistic experience. So we don't dwell on health, and my sister and I enjoy regaling SIL with all the stories of our brother's childhood deeds and mishaps. The menfolk have gotten jealous of our gatherings and often meet themselves with any sons available also in tow. When my daughter is in town, we try to schedule a Girls' lunch to include her. A very nice tradition we have going here.
