I just didn't actually get it.
This is essentially what my DH told me regarding my anniversary present. Our anniversary was yesterday, and I didn't get anything for it. DH and I do have a tradition of getting each other fairly expensive gifts for holidays (as an example, I got him a new computer for our anniversary this year). So to hear that he thought about getting me something, but didn't bother to get off his duff and get it, was very saddening for me. We continued on with our plans (dinner, night at a hotel, then going to the State Fair today), but I really need to find a way to let him know that what he did is NOT a good thing in terms of gift giving. Even if I get the bestest present in the world tomorrow, it still won't make up for how it was given to me.
Any ideas on how I can get the message across without descending into name-calling or fits of PA nastiness?
