Speaking of gifts
I am ordering myself some gifts today! No more miss nice guy. I do not know how others feel about gifts from inlaws and hubby, but I am damn sick of it. Dh is the worst gift giver ever. However, he is the most kind person and gives so much of himself that I do not care. Besides I know where this flaw comes from......his parents. However, they continue to give me 20 dollar Xmas gifts and their son 200 dollar gifts. They give their son a birthday gift, I get nothing.
I have to say I have been very generous in my gifts to them,even before we were married. What got under my skin, was recently, his mother was asked who had given her such beautiful pottery,(from me before our wedding) and she said My son.. No mention of me even though I was even standing next her listening.. I smiled and did not say a word.
I tried to not send them a gift this year, as I usually buy and send the gifts to both sets of parents. However, dh asked me to take care of it, and I felt uncomfortable telling him to handle it, as I really have no gripe with him..
Was I wrong in only signing their son's name to their gift card? I truly do not know if it will even register. They refer to me as "my son's wife"........
