Is your family close to you in miles ? I am about 3.5 hrs from my family, and 2 hrs from DH's mom
Are you close on a personal level with your family ?You bet! I talk on the phone or skype with my mom almost every other day, MIL and I are close due to me living with her between giving up our apartment and getting possession of the house!
Did you spend weekends at Grandma's ?Nope. My maternal grandmother passed before I was born, and paternal grandma died when I was 2.5 but had been sick my whole life so I don't remember her at all.

Is your family close to you in miles ? Nope. My family is 1,000 miles (give or take) ne way and DH's is 1,000-3,000 the other way.
Are you close on a personal level with your family ? Yes. We are a pretty close family. We don't talk everyday or anything, but we can still count on the others and have a great time when we do get together. I call my parents once every week or two and my sisters every now and then ... my brothers aren't much for talking on the phone.
Did you spend weekends at Grandma's ? I did now and then growing up, but now grandma's is way too far away for my kids to spend a weekend their. My parents try to come down twice a year to visit and we try to make it back up there every 2-3 years. (one holiday here, one holiday there, one holiday with DH's mom)

Is your family close to you in miles ? Yep! We live in the same neighborhood, lol.
Are you close on a personal level with your family ? Yes! My mom and I talk every other day or so.
Did you spend weekends at Grandma's ? I never met one and the other was very old (my dad was the youngest of 10, lol). All of my grandparents are deceased.

Is your family close to you in miles ? No way, thankfully. My husbands is.
Are you close on a personal level with your family ?I was very close to my father, my uncle and my grandparents (They have all passed though). I am not close to anyone else in my family. We are pretty close with most of my husbands family.
Did you spend weekends at Grandma's ? My grandmother lived more than 1,000 miles away, but I used to go spend a month with her in the summer time.

Is your family close to you in miles ? No. Not right now. Justin's family is about 5 - 9 hours away by car. (250 - 600 miles)
Are you close on a personal level with your family ? I am very close with my in-laws and with the family that the Lord has blessed me with through friendship. I'm especially close with Justin's mother and sister. We talk several times a week.
Did you spend weekends at Grandma's ? My mother and I lived with her parents until I was 7. Then we moved to another state, just the two of us. I didn't see them much after that. My mother died when I was 11 so my kids sadly won't get to have her in their lives. But Justin's parents are amazing grandparents. We try to make a point to visit with them several times a year. How often really just depends on where we happen to be living and what's going on.

Is your family close to you in miles ? Not too much distance, about 1 hour away from my parents, it's about 2 hours from DH's. We see them on a pretty regular basis

Are you close on a personal level with your family ? I am close with my family, even with DH's family. My sister and I talk a couple times a week, I see my mom once a week, and my SIL talk about everyday. I've been lucky.

Did you spend weekends at Grandma's ? I only had one set of living grandparents growing up, and my grandma died when I was in kindergarten. They were older when they had my mom so I really only knew my grandpa. I only spent the weekend there once but we did go visit them fairly regularly growing up.

Is your family close to you in miles ? Yes, my parents live about 30 minutes away and my FIL lives about 500 ft up the road.
Are you close on a personal level with your family ? yes and no, we're close in some areas, but there are areas I consider personal and don't share. My husband says I tell my mother too much.
Did you spend weekends at Grandma's ? On occassions, yes, but only my maternal grandmother.
