- Feeling like a total shit when being an ungrateful bitch
- Bad example to sisters
- Not appreciating whatever is there waiting to be appreciated
Anyway, those are all the presents I opened. We ate, we opened presents, we ate some more, we played with all our new stuff, we cleaned up, it was great. Laurie and Tom left. Josh told me there was one more present his parents left in our bedroom. It seemed weird. We went into the bedroom. I stopped short. The bed had been re-made. With different bedding. Totally different stuff.
They gave us new pillows, new sheets, new comforter, new throw. The whole thing. Josh was really excited. He and Tom had snuck in to do this while dinner clean-up was happening. Honestly, I felt like I'd been punched in the chest. Then I felt really glad Josh's parents had already left and I didn't have to face them to say thank you right away because I was on the verge of crying.
I don't know why. I'm still not happy about it. Danielle and Alex didn't really get it either. Apparently Josh gets new bedding every year. What happens to the old stuff? He doesn't know - it's given away or whatever. Why new stuff every year? Because. That's it. Because it's nice to have fresh new stuff once a year. This slays me. But I did pull my shit together and called to say thank you when I could do it without crying.
