how far away do you live from them?

i'm about an hour and 45 minutes from my family, and if i don't see them every month or so, the guilt trips starts to intensify to staggering proportions. however, they're starting to finally fucking understand that it's not cheap anymore so they're easing up a bit. i haven't been home since... the beginning of august. but i'm going home next week so... \(_o)/

I usually go down a couple times a year. That's about enough. Although I end up missing Kentucky more every time, at first I really dreaded going back.

It's been a while since I've seen or talked to my mom. We got into it a year ago, when she and my dad divorced, and I just haven't been able to talk to her since.

My dad, I generally talk to at least once a week online and see him 2 or 3 times a month.

I live about 3500 miles away...

when I went to college and living 15 minutes away I'd go over there once every other week or so...

I want some home cooked food but I dont feel like watching my mom and step dad get drunk every night for an entire week

I see my mom every two to three months, my dad a little less. :/

My dad currently lives in Switzerland and South-West Germany (seven resp. eight hours by train), my mom in Upper Austria (two hours).

i see my parents and younger sister in panama once or twice a year. my older brother has been in idaho and guam (with the air force) so the last i saw him was last summer. so once every few years for him. my older sister lives outside of toronto, i haven't seen her in maybe 4 years. she's had two kids since the last time i saw her actually

were you close with your siblings? I dont have any so I cant really imagine not seeing family members for a few years and having it be okay. I feel guilty for not seeing my mom in over a year yet I really dont want to see her

I see my parents every weekend, and my brother, about every other weekend or so. I see them too much, I envy mxzombie.

I see my mom at least once every two weeks. I see my brothers here and there...once a month or so. My sister has been living in NZ so I haven't seen her for months, but I'll be seeing her around the holidays.

they only live 2 hrs away now so about every 2 months. my sister, way less, once a year or maybe twice, she lives 5 hours away. hopefully i'll see her more often when she has my niece or nephew. grandparents 3-4 times/year.

i see my mother in law about twice a month now that she lives in the city.

Once a year.

It's a 26 hour drive, or a 3 and a half hour flight.

Once a year usually and I'll be seeing those crazy motherfuckers this week.

I usually go out to NJ once a year too but that family is much easier to deal with.

I feel guilty for not seeing my mom in over a year yet I really dont want to see hermy older sister is 10 years older than me, so after she moved out when i was 7 i didn't see her much but we still kept in touch every few months through high school. my brother is only 4 years older than me, but we aren't too close, or we never talked much when we lived together. my younger sister is much different, i'm the only one of us that really spent any time living with her; she's 10 years younger than me.
so basically i'm not very close with any of my siblings because there's a 20 year gap in my sisters' ages and i'm 10 years from each of them, right in the middle. not to mention everyone lives somewhere far from all the rest of the family

I'm trying to remember the last time I went to Houston, and I honestly can't remember when it was... That makes me feel kind of bad. I *think* I came home in May after spring semester. I spent the entire trip pretty much at the house alone doing laundry.
I know I've seen my Dad once since at a family party, and my mom and sister come to visit Austin every now and then. Seems like it keeps getting longer between visits. I wish I'd see my dad more because he's my favorite, but he's always working

Yeah I see my folks every couple of weeks. I try to make a habit of going to Asheville (about an hour away) every other Sunday or so. Once I get my house bought and fixed up I'll be back to seeing my little brother every day as he will be my roomie once again.

i'm currently living with my sister while I wait to move into my new apartment in October. So I see too much of her now. I see my parents a couple of times a month. Haven't seen my brother in a year.

I usually see my mom about once a month, and my dad every 3-4 months or so. My mom calls me everyday, and it's a bit excessive. I saw her every weekend for the past 3 weeks (family reunion, death of my pet, and acquisition of NEW pets), so right now I'm on mom overload. I hope I can avoid her for another month or two now. I probably see my grandfather once a month or once every 2 months, I try to make an effort to call once a week. He's got cancer and doesn't have much time left.

I haven't seen my other grandmother in 3 years, and I've only seen her 3 times in my life.
