It goes both ways on this one sometimes yes other times no
Haven't seen my brother or widowed mother in fifteen years. No other family.
Yes, sometimes I do.<br />
(sorry for the ambiguous answer. lol)
My family's not close enough to get together, either physically or figuratively. I don't mind, though, because I wouldn't want to spend holidays with them.
usually hate it, but this year was different. I hated going to family during the holiday's that didn't want to have anything to do with me during the year. This year, it was my kids and their new family that visited and I enjoyed them being here
