So I sent this email to most of the family informing them that Erik and I would not be doing xmas anymore. I let them know it just wasnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t something we wanted to be involved in because it didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t mean anything to us. I did also say we would still like to come to the family party if there was one.
To my surprise there will be no gift giving this year but it makes sense. People are buying houses and lives are going in different directions. Not only am I glad at least this year we donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t have to be the jerks but also that it will be an all over less stressful time of year.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â At least I know the family won’t be bitching about holiday shopping :thumbsup:
So now I can just sit back and not have to worry about any of it. Who knows, maybe IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll even enjoy the holiday for once.
