Weird or What? ... AND...Happy 3rd Anniversary Paulius!

Are we weird or what?

My mom, my brother and one of my sisters live within literally a stones throw from each other and Paulius and myself.
We tend to actually visit my mom and check on her a few times a week. And we all call each other on the phone every day- some of us several times a day to keep up with whats going on with mom and each other. But we hardly ever actually visit each others houses except on major holidays. We don't do the morning coffees or the weekend bbq's unless its a totally spontaneous
thing when we happen to meet at moms as a group- which is about once a year...if we're lucky.

Is that weird or is that normal for siblings?

Another brother is anti-social so we never see him at all, not even ON major holidays. Another sister is living about an hour and a half away in one direction- another sister is living an hour away in the opposite direction, but we still call each other and see each other fairly often. Not as often as I would care to see the girls, but often enough I don't cry missing them.

I think my Paulius was extremely brave and giving by moving all this way. I don't know if I could deal with being away from my family the way he has done these past three years. I know he lived in a neighborhood just like mine with my family- just a stones throw from any one of a handful of aunts, uncles and cousins.

I just want him to know that I appreciate what he did and how courageous I think he was to do that.

Happy Third Year Anniversary of you coming to this country, Baby.

I Love You.
