tomorrow night i have a date with abc family.
why, you might ask? “a very brady christmas” is on.
that movie has very special memories for me. i have a sister who is 10 years older than me. she’s always lived in north carolina, so when i was younger i’d only see her a couple times a year, but she always came during the holidays. she and her boyfriend, now her husband, would drive to maryland to stay with us for a few days. i’d give up my room to jim, and lisa and i would take the downstairs family room. every year we’d get in under the covers on the pull-out couch bed and watch “a very brady christmas” together. i can’t even rememeber how many years we had that tradition. it was so nice to spend quality time alone with my sister.
so now every year i watch “a very brady christmas” and think back to the christmases i shared it with my sister. maybe joe and i will spend christmas with them one year, and lisa and i will watch it together again.
