If you don't live near your extended family (not in the same city) how often to you visit?

How far away are you?

I am 100 miles away from my mom. I want to visit, but we try to make sure it is spring. I wouldn't want to get stuck there b/c I have to work.

  • My family lives anywhere from CA to VA and I am in NC. I havent seen my CA in many years, other then my aunt who comes to visit me about every 2-3 yrs. My moms in VA & I used to go up twice a year but havent been in about 2 yrs. We dont get along. Instead we try to see each other once a year at the beachhouse when we vacation.

  • I live about 5 hrs away. I haven't been home in 3 years. My immediate family keeps me so busy that I just don't have time. They, however have an open invitation to come visit me whenever they want. LOL!!!

  • I'm 700 miles away from my adult children. I saw them this past weekend. Once every few years is enough for visiting. I can't take all the noise and drama

  • We are about 3000 miles away from my family. I get to see them once or twice a year. It gets less and less as the kids get older and lives get busier.
