@ams12:Well, kudos to your DH for standing up for you and your family as you are now his family.

Honestly, I’d be weary.  I’d assume his sister was using a gift basket as a ploy to get in contact again and I wouldn’t trust the drama to be gone!  If I were you, I’d just send a simple card thanking her and wishing her a happy new year.

@ams12:Send a nice hand written thank you card and express your gratitude. Nice, sweet and to the point. Let it go, don’t open yourself up to that foolishness again.

I would send a simple card also. I think anything else will just give her the opportunity to create drama. It also puts the ball back in her court to decide if she wants to have any other kind of contact with you.

All in all it sounds like a horrible situation and kudos to both of you for handling it maturely and removing yourselves from the situation! I think that you have handled it very well so far. Good luck!

I also agree that a simple thank you note is in order.

And I know that this is going to sound paranoid….but is it a cheese basket from a reputable source that hasn’t been tampered with?

I don’t see anything wrong with “testing the waters” as it were with a text, especially if you’re not sure you’d be able to call right now. That being said, I highly recommend that whatever you do, you discuss it with your husband first since this is something that will affect you both.

ETA: Also – and this is coming from reading the other thread – figuring out her intentions may be a good idea. I suggest not touching the basket in case you feel the need to send it back to her.
