Tonight we are driving to visit my younger sister Kelley in her new rent house. Her and her husband David just got settled and we're driving the almost 3 hours to housewarm their house :) We'll get back to town late, but I get to see my too-adorable niece Caitlyn (she's 21 months) and her big brother Jacob. Jake is a hoot, he's three and a half and I love that (as the oldest) he's the first of my sisters' offspring to call me "Aunt Randi" and that is sweet to hear :)
And now about the freebie: Yesterday I touched on my past Days of Our Lives addiction - and I learned I wasn't the only one staying up to watch videotaped episodes! :)
Now onward to adulthood!
The summer before my senior year of high school, a new soap was launched that followed Days. It was called Passions and at first I thought it was SUPER lame, I was still a Days fan. I caught a few episodes of Passions while I lived at home, but it wasn't until I was moved out and married that I really caught the bug.
And all the while I would watch it, I would make fun of it. Of the plots, characters, and of myself for sitting there drinking it in. My best friend Stephanie was also a fan and my cousin-in-law Allison as well. Lots of days would see me (at 1:00pm on the dot) on the couch with my phone pressed to my ear talking to one or the other while I watched. I was all about Luis, what was he doing with Sheridan? Oh and Theresa and Ethan! That monkey-nurse Precious! And that witch Tabatha and her little Timmy! I continued to watch Days most days (hehe), but Passions had a real hold on me.
So after yesterday's post, I just had to offer this one. The fonts aren't right, but if you were a fan you get the gist. And even if you weren't, it's still a lovely sentiment:
