Day 27

What's the best gift you've ever received? What's the worst?

Well, this is a no-brainer! My baby boy is the GREATEST gift I've EVER received. Duh!!

The worst gift? Hmmm....that's hard, because all gifts are pretty great, right? Oh, wait!! I just thought of something!! Years ago, back when CSJ was still around (although, wait, we may have been separated, I don't remember) he, my dad and my brother-in-law had this really brilliant (aka-STUPID) idea to send me, my mom and my sister to Minnesota to The Mall of America. Seriously?!? It's like he had never met me before!!! I would rather get a root canal than go shopping at a mall. I would rather give birth again, with NO DRUGS, than go shopping at a mall!! I think you get the picture. What the hell was he thinking!? Now, for my mom and sister, this was the PERFECT gift. Those two would live at the mall if they could. But, for me? Not so much. In the wind-up, I didn't go (the two of them STILL bring it up every once in a while, and tell me what a baby and a party pooper I was, blah, blah, blah...) I think a friend of ours ending up taking my place, I don't really remember. Or care.

Sheesh! I haven't thought about that in a long time. Yes, hands down, WORST gift EVER!

Oh, and I found out what the hell yesterday was all about. Go here. :)

***It just occurred to me, while rereading this post, that both of these gifts came from CSJ. Ok, well, Stud Muffin is also a gift from God, which explains why he's so awesome. ;-)

If I didn't work at a mall I'd never go to one either. ;)

Aw, c'mon. I hate to shop but the Mall of America is something that HAS to be seen by everyone at least once!!

Now that you've been, you don't EVER have to go back. Feel better?

LOVED the "Christmas Crashing." Totally get that! So glad that you had a great couple of days of partying with your family before you crashed. =)
Oh my gosh, I could write a post about this, too, but I won't. We stopped giving each other gifts some years ago. We give cards, and the gift of time spent together instead (David gets gifts, of course!). Happy New Year!

I am Christmas and birthday crashing. :)
Remind me to never invite you to the mall.
