    Haha! That makes me think of one of my mom’s big birthdays… was it 50? I suggested we get together to buy her a new vacuum. I didn’t realize it was a bad gift. I was thinking that it would be nice because she was still using an ancient model that weighed 400 pounds. Wouldn’t she have liked something lighter and more powerful?

    We got her a nice watch instead.

    Christina and I got my mom a new mop for her birthday once. Sorry mom.

    Never give a lady appliances or cleaning supplies for a special occasion. That will elicit the death look… for a week.

    Actually, I think you’ve really got to know the person. My mom likes practical stuff and has been thrilled, over the years, to receive items like: brooms, vacuum cleaners, a treadmill, and a stair stepper machine. Of course, that should never be the ONLY gift.

    I enjoyed the mop. It’s the thought that counts. I don’t often think of it but I do every Christmas of the ornaments I hang on the tree from you.
