I got a "Barbie Briefcase" from my MIL.
.. It's suppose to be a business card holder with a calculator, but let's face it, it's a Barbie Briefcase. Of course, if I showed up to ANYthing with this thing, my agent would kick my
ets.. I would have prefered the check she usually gives us or at least a return receipt but we didn't get either one of those. She also gave us a golf picture frame and golf clock which would be great, IF WE GOLFED, but in the past 3 years, I've gotten to golf ONE time (nearly broke the club over my head I got so PO'd), and DH barely gets out to do 9, 2x per. As if that wasn't helping to load the garage sale pile, she got us a celestial angel. I collect angels, but a VERY specific kind and type, this TOTALLY does not fit with the collection. Then she gave us a wall cross, but the problem is it's a T-A-C-K-Y looking one that I would NEVER EVER consider putting up. We have some beautiful wall crosses we got for our wedding that haven't gotten put up yet because we've been talking about moving for a LONG time and we just don't have the places to put them up.
I'm insisting that next year we do a Christmas list for the family because we know she spent loads on this stuff, that NONE of us are ever going to use. At least in previous years she got the cheapy tool set for the car or wherever.
