On the subject of gifts. (OT)
One of my own sons has a snotty girlfriend and for nearly 7 years I have bought her and her two girls gifts for Xmas, I barely get spoken to by this chick. I have been extremely patient and bent over backwards attempting to make her feel welcome. My recent experiences with the Skids have made me realize why bother?
This chick has been a part of my sons life for 7 years now, she comes to my home, eats a meal and doesn't say hello, thank you or goodbye. The youngest girl is adorable, the older one is a snot. Every year I treat them just like I do my own grandkids, last year I gave the older one cash because I was tired of the example being set in front of my younger grandchildren of "this is dumb" "is this all I get?" And still no thank you or acknowledgment. Let's see how nothing goes over. I feel bad not getting the little one something and wish I could just say "don't bring the girls to the Xmas party this year, they do nothing but complain the whole time they are here anyways" my other alternate plan is giving my own grandchildren their gifts on a different day to just avoid the usual with these girls. Ugh why am I stressing the holidays coming up already LOL.
