Thank you both of you - guess you are right - I can ask how's the family - that includes all five of them - her daughter, husband and 3 kids - guess I shouldn't ask too many questions - it bugs me though how our conversations are so empty - but will just let it be that way.

Not planning anything special as it is milo harvest time and husband and son have to cut their milo - will try again today and tomorrow - since my husband's birthday was the 15th and mine tomorrow - we both decided we will go out and eat and celebrate after the harvest whenever it is.

Thanks for your help - both of you may have saved my relationship with her as it is always empty but at least she did call. Another thing I wanted to mention is in the past she was always too busy when I would call and said she will call back - we had a discussion about that a few years ago and I told her I wouldn't call her but just wait for her to call me as 80% of the time she can't talk and forgets to call me back and after several years of this - really most of our life - got tired of it - it worked for a while but back again to being busy - but anyway - since she is my only sibling guess I'll have to tone down my complaints to her.

Thanks again for your help. Sometimes it's good to vent with strangers as they see things better than when you are right in the middle of it.
