Why you hope Grandma just gives you cash.

My grandma is a very generous lady. She loves to give gifts. Years ago- she constantly shopped and I think buying gifts (both for herself and others) was her most frequent activity.

Now that she is older, her vision is not very good, and I don't think that she shops very frequently. She does order things from the Penney's catalog, and she occasionally frequents the Dollar Tree, but I'm not sure that she does much shopping otherwise.

She would never neglect a holiday gift that she felt was "due" to someone though. And what we're starting to realize is that if she doesn't have a new gift to give, she simply gives something she doesn't want. The most amusing thing is that she makes up a lovely story about why she chose it. For example, "I had one of these for myself, and I liked it so much, I ordered you one too!".

To illustrate my point, I would like to present to you, my mom's first mu mu, given to her this year for Mother's Day.
Happy Mother's Day Mom! Are the flowers moving?
