Who lives close to their mother and MIL?

Both of mine live thousands of miles away so I am on my own for Mother's Day -- thankfully.

Both. My mom is 5 minutes away and my MIL is 20 minutes away. We get along great though and I don't know what I would do if either of them were far away.

We live about 6 hours from my mom. She's in Europe right now and won't be back by Sunday, so even if she lived close we wouldn't be celebrating it with her. My MIL lives across the country and while that's a total blessing right now, we're trying to move closer to Dh's brother who lives in the same city as her.

My Mom lives 5 minutes away and she is coming over for dinner. DH is cooking, so that will be nice.

My MIL lives thousands of miles away and I have not seen her in YEARS! I cannot stand here! No one can, not even DH! She is pure evil.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy

My mom is about 18 hours drive away and my MIL is about... oh 100 feet. Yeah they live next door.

Don't have much planned though, we gave her a plant and a card and visited this AM, now DH is back in the field trying to get the crop in.

We moved closer to my mother *rips hair out* but we still almost never see her and I dont really talk to her either. We live about half hour from his parents and we also rarely ever see or talk to them.

We live about 15 minutes from my MIL, which is helpful since my Dh and I only have one vehicle and sometimes I have important errands to run that cant wait. (paying speeding tickets and doctor's appts.) Soon we'll be moving within a block of her.

My mother lives about 5-6 hours away. We only see her abut 2-3 times a year. We've seen her twice since April and we'll be visiting her this summer.
