Good question Kitt and thanks for taking over for Maz. I know how it is going for her. Me and my niece and nephew were watching the news today and saw a story on the fires in Syndey. What a tragedy.
As for your question, yes, as a matter of fact, I am working on relationships with my family members. We are already "tight" as a family and there for each other no matter what and love each other more than life itself but I want more "quality" time with my nieces and nephews and the rest of my family. There is being together and then really "together".
Anxiety 2007; IBS 2004; Chronic Hives 2002. Medications: Allegra, Zantac, Xanax, Darvocet.
I guess I should take a stab at my own question.
My husband and I live in Minnesota on the Mississippi and my Inlaws live in Wisconsin on the Mississippi. We are only 12 miles away but often are left out of any "come on over for suppers" etc as we live so far away......
I have always wanted family and all my neices and nephews on my hubbies side are close to the other aunts but not me as we are "out of state". I am trying to build a relationship with them but they are all nearly young adults now.
As you know My only blood family besides my immediate family is my sister from North Dakota.
I am letting the past hurt feelings for not being included on either side go and trying to get to know the young kids better. I am calling my sister-in-laws etc but it is not because we don't like each other..........it has always been a distance thing. Out of site and town, we were out of mind.
No ones fault........just life.
Hugs to All,
