The problem is that no one is spontaneous, but EXPECT something from eachother..it ought to be that you just feel like giving a gift. One made by yourself or have added personal touches to. I refuse to give gifts on holidays. I give them at random "generous" intervals throughout the year instead. If I see something they like, it's theirs, but I'm not going to purposely spend money or time constructing something just because of a calender no.
I do not mind celebrating birthdays SO much though, so long as they are not mine. Mine just passed, and It was quite disturbing. I've had entirely too many distractions during work AND downtime as is
. I appreciate the thought
, but really, too many phone calls, and visits. I just wanted to enjoy my toast & tea. I DO hope you and
your beloved enjoy yours.
