So here at the Chance household we're having lots of visitors. We live about 5 hrs from my family so we don't see them that often. Usually we travel to see them but this time they're coming here. So I thought this was a good time to discuss my family.
My dad and his girlfriend came this past weekend and we actually had a nice visit. Nothing terribly exciting but just a pleasent weekend. It was nice b/c my dad can be difficult. I love him very much but the man can be very self invovlved. We saw the in-laws as well which was fun.
Mom and Pops (stepdad) are coming this weekend and I'm looking forward to that as well. I absolutely love them to bits and I love seeing them. I'm so stressing though b/c mom can be a little critical particularly when it comes to housekeeping. She expects that because she worked and kept a perfect house everyone should. So I'll be spending a lot of time spring cleaning.
I also have 2 older brothers and B a cousin who was raised with us so I had a big family and I loved it. I'd love to have 4 kids, I just don't see that happening for us. My brothers are awesome and I love them to death. B is my beloved olde sister, even when she's a drama queen.
Then there are the unofficial family members. My godmother and her family are a huge part of our family. They're part of why the dna part of de doesn't really bother me. They aren't blood relations but I'm closer to them then my actual aunts and cousins.
My family is very close and I love them all more than anything but at times it takes a lot to deal with them
I have to admit that as much as I love my family I'm glad we live near Banks' family. I absolutely LOVE my in-laws. They have always been wonderful to me and made me a part of the family. I'm really lucky when it comes to in-laws.
Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
