U hear that saying..."u can pick ur friends but you cant pick ur family" my god sometimes i wish i could pick my family. I live 2 1/2-3 hrs away from my family (becuase of my hushand's job) and they get pissed at me for not coming in all the time. I am the one that has 2 little ones that has to listen to them scream for over an hr. Before I had the children I would come in and see the family alot and they would maybe come down to see me once a year. I should also let u know my husbands family is up by my family too. So when we do come up with the kids we have to see 2 families. Its very hard to see 2 family in 2 days( weekend are the only time we can go in). if you cut time with them so u can more to the next family member to see they get all pissy. I tell my family to come on down to our house. they make up excuses. my mom is pretty good at coming done to see us. Its really my 2 sisters. my one sister has no kids and the other her kids are 22 and 17. when i do go out of my way to make them happy all i hear from the one sister with no kids is how i should raise my children and the other one hates my in laws so i cant say any of there names around her or she gets all pissy at me. does anyone else deal with this kinda crap or is it just my family??
