Do you have family you can call on?

If there's an emergency and you need someone to watch your kids. Or if you want to go out of town for a few days will they check on your pets? Anything like that? Give you a place to stay in the event your house has some sort of major catastrophe like a huge water leak?
I don't. It's becoming more and more clear all the fucking time. Yet I've always helped anyone out and they often help each other. But if I need the smallest bit of help I'm out of luck. So when people ask "do you have family that can..." the answer is always no and that seems odd. My dad is dead. So is my mom but she wasn't help when she was alive. My grandma passed as well but she wasn't able to help. Everyone else is too busy or I think they figure I "have money" so I can figure it out. Many of them wouldn't hesitate to ask though and that's where it pisses me off.

My parents and grandparents are in Florida, my brother and his family are in Massachusetts. DH's mom and her family are in Kentucky and his dad's family is in upstate New York.

So, not really.

No we live a few thousand miles from both of our families.  And have our son's (now 22) entire life.
