Well I got ( from the MIL of course) A tacky dollar store foam photo album with drama queen written on it!! Hubby got girly black socks. (LOL)Not knocking the dollar store, I mean I could think of twenty other things from there that would have been much more thoughtful.

My husband bought me an NFL football jersey. We went to a game this year and I mentioned that I didn't have any team clothes to wear. So, he went and bought me fancy jersey of a player I like but what am I going to do with it? I would only wear it to games and we only go like once a year. Otherwise it will just hang in my closet and those jerseys are expensive! It seems like a waste to me and I've been thinking of returning it but he seems to really want me to have it. So...I still have it.


Happy New Year Ya'll!

The worse thing I got was one of those cheap makeup kits. You know the ones with the bright orange lipsticks and lime green eye shadows. I get one almost every year from my mom. She tries so hard I don't even say anything, just smile and think how much fun Halloween will be.

My best gift was from my Hubby. I got a Roomba. The robotic vaccumes. He totaly surprised me because 3 weeks ago our vaccuume died. I have 2 kids a dog and a cat, we can't go more than a day without a vaccume so he told me to go get the cheapest one I could find because our budget was too tight for anything else. Didn't see it then but obviously he'd already bought my present. icon_biggrin.gif

You could always use the jersey as an apron when baking your cakes! Also it depends on what team it is. If it's Miami - well better luck to you!

Go Bills! (I know they've had better years but some day they will be back)

My worst gift was from my MIL. She gave me a fleece blanket with her company's name on it. She's had these things for a long while I'm sure b/c she told me she found and purged alot of things two months ago. I know the blanket was some of the things she found that was stored away.

Okay, Actually this year I didn't get a worse gift. I guess I was fortunate. I loved all my gifts. Although I did get a duplicate item that I don't know what to do with. I asked for an airbrush and ended up with 2 really good ones. One from my husband and one from my brother in law. The unfortunate part is I can only take it back and get store credit for the other one. Well the store doesn't have much else in way of cake decorating supplies so I guess I'm forgoing it to my husband for his model train stuff.

My dad got us a rotisserie. Right. We have no space for it, so it will sit in our closet.


And one time my dad got me a left-handed hockey stick. I don't play hockey. And I'm a righty.

Well lets see....The worst gift was not getting a gift at all---MIL came to my home with gifts for everyone including the cats and dog and nothing for me (LIFETIME Movie network drama I call it!)

Also I received plenty of Asian things from her--Being Asian she thought I would like them!

This year I got ROOMBA!! (from my HUBBY yay--Only problem....Someone had used it and returned it full of hair and who knows what else!

So I called to see if they had another and they did not. They called me to say that they would split the cost of the upgrade for the next model up--$70.00 on us. Well I returned it last Tuesday and told them that it was used yada yada. They call me Wednesday to say that they had one. I called them to ask how and they said well someone returned one. Of course it was the one I returned and YES they put it back ion the floor. The clerk says"You returned one here last night on the second floor at this mall?"" YES I DID!! So gross!!!

So anyway not a bad Christmas if it will cut my vacuuming a bit!!

Hmmm....I wouldn't call this a "worst gift" because I actually like it. But, it's weird enough to get mention.

I got an icecream maker that is inside of a ball kinda like a hamster ball. You know, one of those plastic balls that you put a hamster in so they can run around a room, but can be easily caught. The ice cream maker is inside a plastic ball about that size and you kick it around until the ice cream is done.

I got a "Barbie Briefcase" from my MIL. icon_confused.gificon_confused.gif .. 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 tapedshut.giftapedshut.gif 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.

Why is it that the first time you do research, it is re-search, rather than just search?

I guess I'm very lucky because I did get tons of gifts (to many really) and not one of them did I hate. But I would say the one I disliked the most was a game Deal or No Deal. Now I think it's a fun game to watch once in awhile and would be gret thing to get on. But to play it.........without the real money involved is very dull.

Other then that one I really liked all my other gifts.

Hmmm, the worst gift I got.... A calendar from my sister. Now usually I don't mind receiving calendars (they're useful I suppose) but my sister gets me one EVERY year! I just wish she would put more thought into what she gets....
