Yea. A MAilbox. Everytime she visits she goes on and on about how horrible our mailbox looks and about how embarassed sheis to go into a house with a mailbox like ours.

I always roll my eyes cuz seriously.... it's a mailbox. The mail goes in it. IT keeps the mail dry. As far as I'm concerned, it's doing its job.

Anyway, it was particularly irritating after she went on and on about her daughters birthday and spent hundreds of bucks on her for her birthday. I mean ok, it's her daughter she should treat us a little different... but she always claims that we both get exactly the same treatment, especially since my mother is dead so she has to fill in. Lol. It wouldn't bug me if she wasn't so full of you-know-what.

LOL That is crazy! Glad that your birthday gift is really for her so she can be proud of your mailbox. MIL's are just weird.

Wow. I don't even know what to say to that. lol That is one of those awful gifts. Doesn't she think that if you and your DH wanted a new mailbox, that the two of you would goto Home Depot and get one?

Wow, a mailbox.

If I put it up (*if*) I would first paint it or maybe turn it into one of those cow mailboxes or something fun like that.

or

I would buy a post and stick it in the ground out in the back yard for the kids to play with (right at kid level too)
