The cost of family

June 27th, 2007 at 06:08 pm

Family isn't cheap...I am not talking about the kids, while not free they are relatively cheap. I am talking about the extended family. The trips across town for no reason but to pick up a niece or nephew (OK so w made up an excuse to be there, but really it was just to pick up a kid)

I am talking about the splurges on food, and extra trips for the cousins...Not to mention driving halfway up the country to go see one get married.

Family isn't cheap, it would be much cheaper if I didn't have to do any of that. I don't think it would be better necessarily, just cheaper.

    I guess families often used to live in the same neighborhood, if not the same farm or house! We no longer have family in state, so the trips are a lot more expensive.

    The benefits of having family do outweigh the expenses. I have a bill that we could have avoided by not traveling to help family but wild horses couldn't have stopped me from incurring the bill. Everytime I pay on it I will remember the many smiles and hugs I got form family.
