But in college we didn't get mistaken as sisters, nope, we got mistaken as the same person. All through college people called me Lometa and her Kiesha in passing or even in conversation, even our professors would do this from time to time.
But the best was when I went to the records office to pick up my transcripts, it was a small private college and I knew the lady working in there that day. So I just tell her that I need to get my transcripts. She looks them up for me, prints them out and hands them to me. I think nothing of it and head back to the dorm and then glance at the transcripts and it's Mee Mee's. I stood in the records office for 15 min at least talking to this women that I had talk to many times before and she still gave me Mee's records.
Now I do admit we look more like sisters even than me and my sister Kim, but the same person? That is a stretch. I have the curliest hair on earth and she has the straightest, and our face shape is different, and I'm at least 2 inches taller than her. She has brown eyes and I have green eyes, she tans I do not. Sisters I can see, but the same person. We still laugh about it 12 yrs later.
I just made this one for her from her trip, got to get it printed and sent.
I always have said that God knew I needed another sister when he took Kim, not that anyone could ever replace her but Mee is the closet thing and God-knew I needed her. (I have another non-bio sister, my little sister that I also feel like God sent me but that is a whole nother ballgame, she gave me my precious nieces but she's not on a good path right now and I havn't spoken to her in a while.)
I just wished Mee Mee lived closer.
But Roo says every night that he looks at his room and thinks about how much Mee Mee loves him.
I will post final pics of his room tomorrow if I get a chance, I will be by myself with both kids tomorrow for the first time in a long time so we will see if I have any energy left :)
