For those of you who remember my tale....no H did not buy me a chair. Last night we opened our gifts and when he brought mine in, I could tell from the box that it was not a chair . It was also too large to be a purse so I opened the box and it was an electric fry pan. Now I knew it really was a joke, so I opened the pan and inside was the sad part. He had an envelope with some money in it and he said, "I really wanted to buy you a chair, but our daughter said you really didn't want it, so I gave you the money instead. Do what you want with it." I am glad for the money becaue I can put it away and save for my Trevi, or I could buy a wallet, which I have always wanted, but he looked quite rejected. I understand that Christmas is not about the gifts and I understand that you should be happy with anything you are given. But honestly, I don't get the thought process, here. I feel bad that he is disappointed, but I am also confused at how he thought a chair was a great idea. (I did drop enough hints). Anyway what is important is that my children were home last night and we had a chance to be together, so Merry Christmas to all TPF'ers and their families and I can't wait to see everyone's presents.
