The Best Gift I Ever Gave

Wow.  That really is a tough one to answer!  I mean..aren't ALL my gifts great?!?!?!?! ha.

Hmm.  **Chirp Chirp**

Oh-I guess I can come up with one.

Ok.  So...there is one that is TOTALLY sticking in my mind.  I loved the gift. mom wasn't too thrilled about it. 

A few Christmas holidays ago, I made the plan that I wanted to give gifts that my parents NEED and not WANT.  Since every year they NEVER EVER have a true 'want' and we give them peanuts and bathrobes!!!

My dad had this NASTY old chair that he put in the basement of our house.  It was a recliner that was DEAD.  I mean even homeless people wouldn't want it sit on it!!  It was nasty. Old. Funky. Stinky. DEAD. sisters and I put our money together and bought him a new chair. 

Good gift I thought.

And for my mom?  Well...that's where the gift giving fell out and hit the dirt.

You see, both my parents smoke like freight trains.  And they live in a little house.  (I HATE that's one addiction I never picked up. Yucko.) an effort to help their health a bit.  We bought my mom an air purifier.  You know, one of those things that stand up and cleans the particles out of the air?  Yeah.  My mom was NOT a fan.  ((GULP))

Seriously though.  That air thingy cost over $300!!!

Oh well... better luck next time.
