  • I live not to far from some of my family. They don't come over or call much. It works for me because I like my space.

  • Closest family is about 4 hours away... its been wonderful not having them so close! We get along so much better now.

  • Half a world aways practically! It's nice at times, not so nice other times.

  • 400 miles and it's a bad thing.  At least I'm closer now,  I'm only a 7 hour drive away instead of a 7 hour flight.

  • 623 miles from one sister and 765 miles the other, and yes, it's a good thing. Wish I was closer to my parents-600 miles away.

  • way to far...I live 14 hours away from my in-laws and a 3 day drive from my family. I hate it. I grew up very close to my family and I hate not being able to go 20 min away to see them. I would be happy if I was living close to ANY of my or DH family.

  • 300 miles...not far enough!! :o)

    Answer by LoriKeet at 10:45 PM on Oct. 26, 2010

  • 20 miles from my folks - far enough that mom can't come over every day but close enough for when we do need her!
    Couple hundred feet from my ILs - eh, it's okay because they have a huge playset so we don't need one - but we're hopefully moving out of town next year.

    My siblings are 50 miles away, and 350 miles away. Both distances suck.
    DH's siblings are 2 miles away, 10 miles away, and 350 miles away, and one is in his grave :o( - they all suck too (we want the close one to be far and the far one to be near).
