for Christmas presents?
Here’s the thing, I busted my ass making a beautiful handmade photo album, which I posted a picture of here, for my sister in law, it took me over a week to finish, many hours and many trials and errors but I was proud of the finished product and felt it was worth all the hard work I put into it. Here’s the kicker, she bought me some socks that go up to my neck and a….wait for it……A FREAKIN’ MOO MOO!!! What the hell ever possessed her to think I would ever wear a FREAKIN’ MOO MOO???????????????????????? SERIOUSLY?????? Okay, y’all can stop laughing now, I finally did, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry so I compromised, I laughed till I cried.
I’m sorry for being ungrateful but there’s no way I can fake thinking these were good gifts when I give thoughtful and expensive gifts, like all the fiestaware I have bought her. I have repeatedly and I do mean repeatedly, asked her not to buy me any more clothes, I don’t want them, I don’t need them and most of them are crap and don’t fit anyway so how well does she listen???? A FREAKIN’ MOO MOO!!! So tomorrow she will call and ask how I like the presents, what am I supposed to say? Should I be kind and grateful and say I love them or tell her how I really feel? I know what most of you will say, be nice but I have spent years being nice but A FREAKIN’ MOO MOO is the final straw, my niceness is buried between the 20 yds of cloth that were used to make the FREAKIN’ MOO MOO.
I so hate Christmas. Next year Christmas is off for me, I’ll give the grandchildren money and that’s all the Christmas I’m going to do. I’ve already decided I’m not doing cards next year, now add no gifts to that and I should finally enjoy Christmas for the first time in my life and will dwell on the meaning of the season.
Mike told me if he ever saw me wear it he’d either put me out to pasture, take me to the slaughterhouse or put a bell around my neck and call me Bessie.
Hope y’all have a Merry Moo Moo Christmas.
