What is going on with my family?!
Sun, 12-11-2011 - 10:06pm

Hello to all. This is a question/mini vent, so sorry if it gets a little long. To start out the relationship between my mother and I is not one to envy. We get along when we have to, but 98% of the time I can't stand her. My husband has no relationship with his family, and honestly it's just better that way. But my siblings and I, we've always had good relationships. We have our own things going on, but we've always made time for being together. Well some time in few moths or so my sibilings(all of them) have slowly started drifting away. Nothing has changed in their personal or professional lives etc, but now they have for the most part, completely stopped talking/responding to me. Today was my oldest neices birthday and I called my sister to see if I could drop off her card and present, but got no answer. I texted her later and still no response. I texted

I agree! The only way you're going to know is to ask.

Good luck!!

The only way to find out is to ask. Talk to them individually and say hey we used to get together, etc and now I don't hear from you. Have I done something to offend you because if I did, I'd really like to know what I did. Tell them you miss them and really would like to get together, maybe you could plan something. After Xmas my family likes to get together
