  That concept has always frustrated me. We get little enough vacation as it is, why do we have to spend it in stress-inducing ways? Even if you love spending time with relatives, the travel time alone really eats into the time you can spend actually relaxing. If you're like me, with NO vacation, any time away from work is so expensive as to make it prohibitive. I can't even afford a staycation, much less going somewhere.

I'm always trying to figure this out.

How much energy does a grown person pour into staying in touch with their family? 

I mean, there are a thousand variables, I know... but I'm once again seething a bit inside about how how the me-visit-my-brothers vs brothers-visit-me ratio is (literally) 40:<1.

My Mom decided not to come out for the teen's HS graduation next month.  We've been planning this forever!  I'm very sad about it.  Which always makes me wonder... I'm a grown, very independent woman, why does my Mom's visit matter so much to me?
