Has anyone ever considered ...

...moving away from all your relatives? I'm talking your relatives as well as your inlaws?

I swear, I've been thinking it recently. Not that I would do that with my mother. But the rest ... I think they have all come together to see if they could make me have a nervous breakdown. It's like a running contest to see who can push me over the edge first.

no only tho cause its only my mom and dad near us and they are never around anyhow (mom is a flight attendant and dad is retired but he still is in the office daily anyhow )
plus they have a house in Florida they go to at least 1 time a month for a few days!!

Well ... no luck. I mentioned Alaska to my husband today. Too cold and dark for him. He mentioned Texas, Nevada, and I said too hot for me. Then we started discussing how we couldn't live where there are cockroaches, chiggers, or ticks (though there are some ticks here). Maybe if I looked overseas!

No Way! My mom lives 2 streets over and she babysits whenever we need her. Not to say that she doesn't get on my nerves sometimes Ya know, putting her 2 cents in about what I should be doing with the kids. usually I just roll my eyes Dh family lives about an hour away, so we only see them a few times a month.

I get along with all my family...so no, I haven't considered moving away from them as a way to get away.

There is a reason why dh joined the army . While I wish my mom lived closer so she could babysit I do enjoy not having to deal with my in-laws all the time. I had enough when we were in Oregon in April. Before dh joined the army and we lived in Oregon we were doing something with the inlaws at least once a week. There were days I would find out there was going to be a birthday party at our house, because that was what the rest of the family decided would be convenient for them. Christmas was awful, no less than 6 Christmas events in 2 days to make everyone happy. When we thought we may get orders to Ft. Lewis I actually started having nightmares because we would only be 3 hours away from them.

melsb- what about South Carolina? Charleston is beautiful, it does get warm but the beach is close by. Chattanooga, TN is also very beautiful . LOL those are all the places we've thought of moving to when dh gets out of the army.. just to avoid the inlaws

No, I don't think it would be a good idea for me to move away from my parents. They're old and things are going to start going out/falling off of them pretty soon, so I feel like I need to be nearby to keep an eye on them.
