My oldest sister has always looked after me, she has been more like a mother to me than my own mother. I remember telling (or yelling at) my real mother that back when I was 15 and it upset my mother so bad that she sent me up to my room and put me on restriction for two weeks. But a fact is a fact and nothing can change the truth. I still look towards my sister for just about everything, we text each other almost every day, use the Yahoo Instant Messenger, Facebook posts and chats as well as our cell phones help us keep in constant contact and communication with each other.
My sister has taught me the value of looking before you leap concept in so many areas in life. I remember her telling me in my teen years that if it sounds too good to be true that it usually is too good to be true, a saying that proves to be so true time after time after time. She is also the responsible for getting me into personal computers back in the 80’s when they were first being sold to the general public. Our first computers were Macintosh, I have always had a soft spot for Mac’s since then but had to move over to the IBM one and their clones because the majority of places that I worked at didn’t use Mac’s so it became such a challenge that I finally had to give up my Mac while she still buys from Apple exclusively.
Last Christmas we made a good team finding good gift ideas for everyone on our shopping lists and then hunting around finding the best deal possible, online of course and getting the best bang for our bucks. I had heard of a site that has great products for sale at nomorerack.com and before I turned my sister onto it I took a few minutes to find and read nomorerack reviews as well as Googled “nomorerack scam” to make sure that this was a reliable company to deal with. It really would have sucked to be swindled during the holiday season, something that I can’t even imagine happening but certainly hear stories each year confirming that it does indeed happen, all to frequently, sigh…..
Anyway – nomorerack.com turned out to be a great site that helped us find a good amount of our gifts at affordable prices and Christmas went off without a hitch. My sister and I bought computer web cams for each other so that now we can actually see each other when we want to. Since she moved to San Diego I don’t get to see her as often as I would like. Sisters were not meant to be separated by such long distances but at least today’s technology gives us a lot of options to keep in touch.
