Because of everybody's schedules, I had to do Christmas presents early. It's pretty much all over now.
I'm trying to understand why everyone I gave gifts to told me, "That's too much." Every.Single.Person.
What, was I trying to buy love or something? I thought I was showing thoughtfulness, sharing a bit of myself (my photos and artwork were a large part of everyone's gifts this year. I made calendars from them and/or framed photos).
The bulk of the gifts went to my brother's family. He sent me a memory card with family photos on it (many of which I'd never seen before). That was great. But on the card he sent, he signed for everyone else in his family. They didn't even sign their own names.
Is there really any good reason I should feel whiny about this?
Never mind. Feelings are feelings. There's nothing in the term "in law" that suggests enforcement is ever appropriate.
