    I feel like a slacker, but I have two children and an adorable husband! I'm an only child, so my parents (still alive) knew better once I was born! ;) We still all have fun. I have wonderful cousins and in-laws too. I"m fortunate and blessed to have such a close family. We're all crazy which makes it easier and fun! We all laugh when we're together. And we appreciate one another.

    O.k. here goes,
    One sister, (in PA) not much communication between us.

    Parents decesed (Dad was 57, died in 1979, Mom was 68, died in 1990) Miss them a lot!

    Two children, two in law children,(daughter and SIL live 5 miles away one granddaughter (son, DIL and granddaughter live 10 hours away or more in PA)

    Three step children, 5 or 6 step grand children.
    We are not in touch with two of the step children nor 3 or 4 of the step grand children, for unknown reasons. We try, but such is life. But we spoil the rest as we can.

    No pets.

    Oh, and I'm older than I look :thumbup:

    I hope my children live that close to me once their out on their own. And sometimes when they're being ornery, I wish they did now!

    You remember the Beatles song "When I'm 64"? I'll be 64 in August. Only only sister still with me. Have 3 kids, 33, 31, & 21. Having a baby at 43 kept me young!
