Aunts & uncles. I visited until busy season which is when my sis-in-law started staying home.
Her and my brother complained about how I didn't go by, which is clearly because of the crazy work schedule- I'm dying to see my niece again!
I started making a serious effort to go by on days that are slow for me, and she is somehow always busy or it's a bad day when I want to go. She suggests a day that I'm busy. 🤦‍♀️ Then they complain when I'm there that I never go by.
Anyone go through this?
