I *HATE* Christmas. I hate the fake 'happy family' time that goes along with it. I don't neccesarily hate my inlaws, but I could think of better things to do with my time than to be with them and wasting money on presents that aren't appreciated. I'm such a total bear today. edit: It's really stupid to be arguing with my spouse over what goes in the Chex Mix too, and I hate that I feel like I have to be this perfect wife when his mom is concerned.
