reclaiming my waltz, or learning not to be my own worst enemy

This was not the post I meant to write.  Instead of my original idea which was merely a retelling of the days events bland and commonplace as they were,I am instead confronted with a comparison between two very different but equally unique people.  Namely myself and my younger sister.  I'm the older sibling by two...
