My SIL is married to my husband's brother. I make sure to wish her a happy birthday, her children a happy birthday, I send cards and mail presents for everyone's birthdays and for Christmas. I send my daughter's clothes for her daughter. But, she doesn't even acknowledge us at all! She'll call and say thank you when she gets the box, but she can't even pick up the phone to wish us a happy birthday, she can't even facebook it! lol She has always seemed so wrapped up in her own little family, with her side of the family and obviously with her friends. But, when it comes to visiting the other side (the side I'm on) we are all on the back burner. She was back home for 3 months and only visited my inlaws twice. They live 4 hours away and we've driven to see them 4 seperate times but they haven't even come down to see us once. It's so frusterating to want them to act like family because I love them like my family!

Of my 4 SIL the one who is married to my husband's brother is the only one who is worth a dime. I have one who will send me a card for my birthday, but won't say good morning to me at church. And two who can't even be bothered that much. I would rather that they forgot when my birthday was and said good morning or picked up the phone for no reason, but it ain't gonna happen. One of them I used to pick up the phone for no reason, and she would talk for 30 minutes. but it never occurred to her that the phone works both ways. When I pointed that out to her and stopped calling the relationship disappeared. Good luck.
