We were the closest family possible. Our world was turned upside down on 05/03/09 when my best friend, the person I love most next only to our children, my sister Trina was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Her body gave out on her on 01/09/10 but she will ALWAYS be a part of our daily life and will continue to be in my posts. I started my blog to chronicle our daughter's international adoption from Guatemala and have continued to use it as a journal.

What you will find is my family trying to adapt to our new lives that were handed to us.

An Idiot Abroad

I have been anxiously awaiting the premier of "An Idiot Abroad" ever since I saw the first promo for it. I watched the preview show and the first episode back to back and I must say, it was the most I laughed in over a year. I love, love, love this show. The only drawback? I kept wanting to reach for the phone to talk to sissy about it. She would have loved it too. We both loved "Flight of the Conchords" and would recite lines from the show to each other. I had Beya watch the preview episode of "An Idiot Abroad" and she chuckled a few times but said she had no interest in watching the series.

There is another show that Trina loved and would always talk to me about even though I never watched it while she was alive and that is "Castle." Every week I find an hour to myself to sit and watch "Castle". In my mind I'm watching it with sissy. Yes it's painful because I wish so damn much I could talk to her about it but it is my way of still watching tv with sissy. I am going to do the same thing with "An Idiot Abroad".

So thank you Karl Pilkington, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, for allowing me to watch tv with my dead sister. I think that is the highest praise possible for a tv show.
