Am I being too picky? Doesn't every one call their parents on major holidays, without fail? My sibs used to be pretty good about this, but they all didn't call on folks birthdays this year, and completely missed Thanksgiving. One grandkid did call (thank Heavens). My parents especially Mom were visibly upset when i mistakenly expressed some hope that "maybe Jon will call if we start eating pie...." (Murphy's law of sitting down to eat, the phone rings).
Should I instead be calling each of the 4 siblings (and the ex-SIL who has custody)? They never call much anymore at all. Oh but I know they'll be calling when they're thinking they're gonna inherit something. So incredibly sad.
