I talk to my mom every day but my last living grand parent doesn't know who she or anyone else is anymore. Dementia got her real bad. Also gently caress my dad.

Want a better avatar? Boom! Better avatar. Don't say you never got nothing.



I'm not allowed to talk to my mom's parents anymore because they got in a fight with me about a certain fat orange bitch right before the election after specifically requesting we not talk about politics; then told me COVID was fake while I was quarantining and waiting on test results from a work exposure. They then immediately caught COVID from my cousin and ended up in assisted living. Kinda makes me feel like poo poo my last interaction was a fight wishing death upon a political figure, but eh, I said I didn't want to have the conversation like 40 times.

Talk to my parents and the other grandparents that are left standing regularly, though.

You know, what's odd about my family is that there are none there, it's v strange.
I have a total of 3 cousins and I never really ever saw them.
Mum, Dad, Aunts, Uncles, most cousins all gone. I don't really get sad about it much but I do often wonder what family get togethers are like. My in laws are cool as hell but it's not really the same.

Sure, they're visually impressive, but a lot of posters find large avatars physically uncomfortable. Furthermore, the owners of large avatars often rely on their size alone and don't bother to develop more refined posting techniques.

I call my mom several times a week. I have since my dad died, and have made especially sure to do so while she's been stuck working from home since the pandemic started.

I call my maternal grandparents once a month or so, my grandpa likes chatting with me cuz I have the same line of work he did. My paternal grandparents are both dead tho

I talk to my mom at least once a week and try and call dad once a week, too. Its hard to talk to my dad over the phone sometimes because we don't have a whole lot in common. It is better than it used to be though, thats for sure.

My last grandparent died when I was 12. Unfortunately, I wasn't really able to develop close relationships with any of them because of that.

I talk to my parents a couple times a month maybe. They'd be annoyed if I called them too much with nothing to talk about anyways

I call my parents at least once a week. If my dad answers he immediately says ďIíll go get your momĒ and gives her the phone. I do t blame him I hate talking on the phone too. They are now both vaccinated and ill be fully vaccinated soon so Iíll start visiting them more often.

My last living grandparent died in 1999. I donít even remember their phone number.

I keep meaning to join one of those ancestry sites because I don't know my Grandparents names, well I know one was called Alice. It's bizarre having no one to ask, I never knew any of them so never really took much interest growing up.

do you still keep in touch with your mother?

any communication to my mom would actually be to my dad pretending to be her. he's extremely manipulative and incapable of empathizing with anyone. it's also a very complicated situation where, while she is a victim, she is also a participant, and i can't fix that. it's been tried. i just "don't have parents" instead.

i do talk to my siblings though. we bond over our bad childhoods together

Check out the Mormon genealogy database. Chances are they have that info. Not kidding.

GPs long dead for me. Try to talk or email mom at least once a week if not more, she shares everything with dad, as he can't really focus on a conversation for more than 5 minutes these days.
My brother is the hardcore "lets keep in touch" one of the family. He'll call up and at least once a week. "Nothing new here, anything there? No. Ok just wanted to say Hi, catch you later."

One of my few memories of my Gran was her saying to my Dad what a great idea it was having a deep fryer like in restaurants in the front room was. My Dad had built a sideboard, but to her, that'll what it was. She also said 'oh and here's the elephant' once when someone walked in the room, I don't really remember much else apart from she had a bald spot on the top of her head and I was told it was pretty common and came from when she worked the cotton mills as a child. Their job was to scurry around under the loom machinery to collect any stray cotton and they'd routinely get their hair ripped out.
She had dementia, but I was always told that she was always kind of really happy with it and never suffered, she just saw the world in a very different way bless her.

I call my grandma every now and then. I enjoy talking to her because she's always so excited about everything. Then she drops a few lines of "I'm ready to go wish it wouldn't take so long!" but she's also 95, and lived through the great depression and the war.
LOL if you think im calling my parents unless I need to.
