    Getting ready to go to bed. I have been SO tired the last few days. I keep having to get up early, but then I still end up staying up fairly late because it seems like there is still so much to do. ::sigh::

    Letting my stomach settle after eating at Texas De Brazil.

    We took my mom there for her birthday. The LV Bat bag was a hit.

    Sad because Mr BRS's mom criticized me for buying people gifts for Christmas. I just don't understand what is wrong with his family. All I wanted was a normal Christmas this year and it looks like I was the only one who bothered to buy presents. It just so happens (and I just found out this last Friday) that my brother isn't getting anyone anything this year either.

    ^^^ Why would she criticize you? Is buying gifts for others "wrong"?

    Right now, I'm drinking coffee and watching my dog have some type of nightmares, he keeps on barking and moving around in his sleep...

    I guess I should elaborate a little bit. You see, gift giving has ALWAYS been a really big deal in my family. We always get each other gifts, it's just part of the fun of Christmas. This year is the very first year my brother won't be getting anything for anyone. He had to take some unpaid time off from work (along with a bunch of other people) because his employer is trying to avoid having to lay people off. I had no idea he wasn't going to be participating in the gift exchange until just this last Friday. My parents knew nothing about it. This is fine, I understand that he is hurting for money and all. I just wish I would have had prior notice, being that I was struggling to have the money to pay for gifts myself. I'm still going to get him something, I'm just not going to spend as much this time around. Make sense?

    As for Mr BRS's family, they have just been gradually going down hill in the gift-giving department over the past few years. I'm not sure if they were simply trying to humor me in the beginning because they know my family is huge on giving gifts or what. For example, before Mr BRS and I got married, they would get me clothes or socks and a gift card to somewhere I like to shop. Last year, however, they didn't get me anything. Instead, they hand Mr BRS an envelope full of savings bonds that were bought for Mr BRS when he was a kid... and then they said it was for both of us. Excuse me, but how is Mr BRS's childhood savings bonds a gift for both of us? He couldn't even cash them either because they hadn't matured yet! My BIL and SIL are just as bad, giving us stuff that came from a craft show (SIL babysits her mom's booth). I realize that they obviously aren't putting any thought into gifts, but I still wanted to get them something anyway. I don't have any money either and it has been a struggle to buy gifts. I guess I just don't understand. Is that selfish of me?

    BRS, i'm sorry to hear what happened to your bro and actually most of my friends' company are like that too. Make everyone take off and deduct from the vacation/sick leave, for whoever doesn't have any leave day, will be unpaid. It's very bad but at least the boss is not closing down the company. Cost is always a concern to the boss... You can get something small but thoughtful to your bro, may be knit a scarf or something... i think that'll be really sweet. Big gift doesnt mean have to be big $$$$$... it's thoughts that count... especially at this very moment, i think everyone will understand. Rather than you spend bunch and they can only get you something small...

    as for Mr. BRS family, well, at least the entertained you... LOL.. sorry, have to say that. Well, if they are not into gift exchange but you are, and you still will get them something, that's a good thing even nothing in return. Showing love and appreciation to families is always priceless and nothing can beat that. I would say, just don't focus on what you will get in return or they gave you some trashy things... just do you part and be happy, proud of it

    :)

    The truth be told, I will probably want to get them gifts no matter what. It's just the way I am. I guess if they don't want to get us anything, then I would prefer that they simply don't give us anything. I would rather that then they get us stuff that were wouldn't want or ever use. To me that just signals that they didn't put any effort into the gift and that they just bought whatever because they felt obligated. When that happens, it really hurts me feelings. But if I want to get Mr BRS's family gifts and don't expect anything in return, then why is it that Mr BRS's mom criticized me?
