AND WHEN I SAY FAMILY I MEAN MY FATHERS MOM, 2SISTERS AND THEIR CHILDREN AND HUSBANDS,3 BROTHERS AND THEIR WIVES AND CHILDREN, NEICES, NEPHEWS AND 5TH COUSINS COMING OUT OF THE DANG WOOD WORK.



1 TIME EVERY MONTH FOR THE BIRTHDAYS OF THAT MONTH

CHRISTMAS

THANKSGIVING

EASTER

NEW YEARS

LABOR DAY

MEMORIAL DAY

FOURTH OF JULY

AND A FEW I PROBABLY FORGOT EX WEDDINGS AND FUNERALS.

IN ADDITION EACH CHILD'S PARTY



NOW MY GRANDMOTHER HAS ALSO STARTED HAVING FAMILY GET TOGETHERS WHERE WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET TOGETHER AND PLAN OUT THESE THINGS.

< P.S. I ALSO NEED YOU ALL TO KNOW I TRUELY DESPISE ATLEAT HALF OF THE PEOPLE AT THESE GATHERINGS.

  • I can't remember the last time my whole family was together in one place at the same time. Probably my mother's funeral in 2005. Everyone just has such different lifestyles and schedules now!!

  • I rarely get together with my entire family. I live in Utah, they live in Maryland. The last time we were all together was Christmas of 2001.

  • Wow, I think that is too much! LOL. I LIKE my family and that's too much. We don't get together hardly that much. We celebrate birthdays and the major holidays, but the "whole" family only gets together for family reunions, weddings and funerals. Maybe you can fake an illness sometimes. Hang in there.
