Things I don't miss or the things I really honestly do!

My family used to gather around every friday night and order pizza and chinese. When I say we all used to gather around, I mean a lot of people. At least 20 people if not more would gather around every friday and we'd eat and generally have a good time. Well I say we'd generally have one as I was mostly ignored. There were times when it was much fine. My family's always been dysfunctional and I suppose that's what's made me who I am today. I am always depressed, and when i'm not I'll be honest in saying that I am slightly paranoid. I love my family and I almost miss the friday nights but I don't at the same time. We are all just one family that centers around my grandparents. If you want to know anything about anything call my grandmother, she'll tell you about my sister, my cousin and what the fat lady next door is doing lately. I mean no insult by calling her that, but this lady is really a very mean woman. Anyway, to get to the questions. What traditions do you miss that your family used to do?

I know your family is dysfunctional and I know that you do not miss but at the same time you do miss those Friday night gatherings,I would have to say that one thing I miss that used to sort of be like a family tradition,was when me,my mom,my dad,my aunt,my uncle,and sometimes my cousin used to sit around our kitchen table and play poker for pocket change,it was always a lot of fun and we had a lot of good laughs while doing it,I love you.

well every sunday we used to attend church service and after that have lunch together with my children..but now since my daughter have work far from our place it seems that we missed her during sundays and birthdays...but i guess its the part where as parents have to face and think that their children are already grown up and need to spread their wings ...

Yes we all have to spread our wings sometimes, whether it be at the start of adulthood or further on when we feel we're ready. I hope that you can spend more time with your daughter and maybe start a new tradition! Good luck and the best of it to you! Have a happy day!
