Who is the family member you're closest with?
Are there any family members you choose to have nothing to do with?

other than my Mum & sister, I'm really close with one of my Aunties, and she is actually coming up tonight, because my cousin had surgery today... and even though he's 20, she wants to be with him lol I think it's cute. I will hopefully spend some time with her tomorrow while the girls are at preschool & daycare!

As for having nothing to do with.... my Dad's 2 sisters - because they treat me like I'm a useless piece of trash because I am a single parent & had kids out of wedlock... one in particular I refuse to have anything to do with, the other isn't SO bad, but i wouldn't choose to go and visit her over say.. going to the dentist. Also on my Mum's side, her youngest sister is married to an abusive, drug addicted jerk off, who has pretty much banned her from having anything to do with us.. so when they're together I have nothing to do with her, when they break up I talk to her.. and then they get back together & it's back to no contact...

I'm close with a lot of my family. My mom and dad, sister and brother in law, and brother and sister in law. As well as both sets of my grandparents. We all lived in the same town before I abandoned them and moved to Alaska. My moms two sisters and their kids are close, and so is my dads brother and

Camping trips are a lot of fun in my family, lol.

I'm really close to my mom and brothers, I have three brothers. One of my brothers and I text a lot too, and talk on the phone, but the other two I never do that with very often. My dad I'm not so close with, I don't hate him or anything but we're just not that close since I moved away, my parents are divorced btw.

As for extended family, my cousin and I keep in touch on FB, I should see if my other cousins are on there. One cousin I'm not crazy about, she's pretty self centered and showed up late to our grandmother's wake AND funeral!

I am really close to my sisters. There is a ten year san between my older sister and little sister so we are really spaced out but we get along really good.


I have not talked to my brother since the whole FB incident and he refuses to call me back so I guess that he would be the cut off one but I would like to be close to him again.
