I have been lurking for a while and I now have my first question.
My oldest sister (S1) lives across the country from me and the rest of the family. She (for some reason) sent my gift and my brother's gift to our other sister's (S2) house. When me, brother, and S2 all met up at my parents' house on Christmas Day, S2 forgot to bring S1's gift to me. S2 said she would drop it off at my parents' house the next time she was in their area. However, she does not stop by there very often and I live even further away so I am also not around there very often. As a result, I have no idea when I will actually receive this gift. I'm concerned about a thank you card. S1 is not very good with them, she has yet to thank me for the gift I sent to her (she did let me know that it was received). However, I would like to be the example.
Any advice? Should I write a card when I finally open the gift? What if I never receive it from S2? Also, is there some way that I could nicely suggest that she send things directly to me?
Thanks you all
