Anyone know of any good sayings about relatives, they are so friendly when they are in town visiting. We make them feel welcome at our house.
If you go to their state, they avoid calling you.
They call the minute you get home, just to make sure you aren't going to visit them. They say we were wanting to have dinner with you, lol. They never offered when they knew we were coming, only after we are home.
Anyone else have a sister or family like this?

She is a sister, 57 yrs old, she is widowed. I used to think it was due to her husband, but now he's gone, she's still the same way. My husband welcomes them when they visit.

She has two grown daughters, they act just like she does. Her daughter wrote me on facebook wanting to know when we were going on vacation, knowing that we were already home of course. We posted pics of our vacation on Facebook. Some family!

Yes, she acts like her house is too messy. Couldn't she clean it up for a day?

Yes, I'm probably better off, but should that matter with family?

I have a step daughter who is always "borrowing" money. I have no idea how much she is into mrs. rowdy for. We loaned her $500 a while back, it took her six months to pay it back. Three days later, she borrowed another $300. Its a vicious cycle,lmao.

At some point, you will want privacy. Maybe you could convert your garage into an apartment.

Oh, I could arrive uninvited and unannouced at most of my relative's and friend's house's and never give it a thought. They'd be just as comfortable. And the same goes for them coming here.

But Bob's right, lot's of times it is one spouse or another who might harbor some feelings.

DON'T take it personally. Very small chance that it's you.

Some folks just get nervous having company. Think they have to have everything perfect and entertain company 24 X 7. It could be that.

If she's in depression, no. She really can't clean it or do much that takes planning. And she is embarassed by it.

My mother always said, "I came to see you, not your house." Very true. She also said if your bathroom was clean, people would think the rest of your house was. Never quite got that one.

How about meeting her somewhere neutral for a few day visit? Hotel or motel close to an attraction or park where you can only eat out and there's plenty to do?

Welcome to my world. You can't consider it a loan, but a gift. Count on not getting it back and be careful and know what they need it for. Now only 1 of the four stepkids ever needs a 'loan.' Quite the charmer, that one. It's always me that gives in. Not his dad.

I used to joke that when I visited my nieces, I left there without a nerve left in my body or a penny in my pocket. LOL But they are fine adults.

You're born into a family, drift apart somewhat, and gather a 'family' of friends around you.

One cousin of mine was 'lost' to us for over 20 years till she came to a funeral in 2001. We talk almost daily and see eachother weekly. Her grandson's have their own 'toy cabinet' at my house.

Disappointed, I wish I could PM you.
