I have!!!!

So i keep getting emails from distant family members I have not seen since I was like 5 or just ones that we never really kept in contact with. I come from a really big family. My dad is one of 8 kids and my grandma was one of 12. So that large of a family just spreads out too quickly, how could I know where everyone was?

Anyways...these emails I keep getting, everyone is like OMG why didn't you tell us you got married...and your having a baby???? LIke its the end of the world.

So i always respond very nicely saying yes we got married last april and the baby is due soon yada yada yada.

But they seriously seem upset, like i kicked their puppy. I don't feel bad because I know there was nothing I could do...I was not going to send out like 300+ annoucement cards explaining my life but its not like I was hidding it either.

I keep trying to find out who said what to who that started this chain reaction. Its like a bad jigsaw puzzle. I can't help but laugh at these people. I don't even know who is who's mom or child or aunt or uncle!

Sometimes families are just toooooooooo big!!!!!!!!

How silly of them to be upset with you that you didn't call them or tell them! Have THEY called YOU to tell you their latest goingson? No! How silly.

I recently was tracked down online by a cousin I haven't seen or heard from in 18 years. Needless to say, it's awkward (she's from my mom's ex-husband side of the family).
