The Worst Christmas gift I ever recieved...

This black friday was a mad house. I didn't get the deals I had hoped, but overall, I got some goodies. Talking about black Friday with my in-laws over dinner made me ask..What was the worst Christmas gift you ever recieved. Needless to say, I took the cake.
I can remember it like it was yesterday....
The box was really light. After 4 years of being together I really thought "this could be it". I should have listened to the warning..."remember...before you open it.. I didn't have a lot of money this year".

So was that a prelude to a 'ha ha.. I got you didn't I?" or a prelude to a " no seriously, I'm broke"

It was more than just an 'I'm broke' kinda thing... Sometimes I wonder if it was a re-gift kind of thing. Sometimes, I really wish it had been. But for some reason, my boyfriend of 4 years thought it would be nice to get his girlfriend....this........

A Beavis and Butthead t-shirt.

You would think that 4 years would have been enough at that point, but no. I stuck around for 4 more and got dumped while folding his laundry in my underwear. . But if that didn't happen I wouldn't have experienced the best Christmas gifts ever...

Best Christmas gift I ever got...there are 3
First Christmas as a married couple with my husband Michael
First Christmas with my husband Michael and brand new baby boy, Tyler.
First Christmas with my husband Michael, son Tyler, and my baby girl, Emma.

A family... the best gift ever, and I get to open it every morning when I open my eyes. Imagine that.

Those of us with the good fortune to be happily married are blessed indeed. Children ae the icing on the cake.

Do you still have the shirt or did you burn it in a fit of rage?

You would have thought I would have burned it huh...

but no, I went upstairs and sat on my parents bed and cried in my step mother's arms.

Know what I bought him that year... a craftsman rollaway tool box.
Me and his dad went Halvies...

I did not, however, ever wear the shirt.

I don't have that shirt, but I will tell you a secret, I still have his long john shirt. It was always so snuggly and warm. I thought after 8 years, I deserved it.

and I sold the ring I eventually got, last year.
