This post has nothing to do with DIY. And as easily as I could have screwed Christmas up with my “Just let me paint behind the tree…No, you dont need to move it…” BAM! Buzzzzz! Darkness. I did not do that this year. What I did do was much worse.
You all have had a chance to “meet” Court right? He is the best husband in the world. We are quite the pair.
I like to consider myself a thoughtful gift giver. I put a TON of effort into the planning and thinking, and thinking and planning. And sometimes (like last year) it pays off.
Sometimes it doesnt.
Let me plead my case.
Court REPETEDLY says and I quote “All I want in this world is a clean house.”
So being the loving and thoughtful wife I am this is what I gave Court for Christmas:
For those unfamiliar with my girl Zoila she is the housekeeper on Flipping Out and is one of our favorite people in the entire world.
As he unwrapped it I exclaimed “We are getting a cleaning lady!!”
To say he was not happy is a slight understatement.
Apparently Court thought he was getting a gun. (Which I would never buy for him because he is so picky.) Basically it was a lose/lose situation.
So have you ever had a great gift backfire? Tell me all about it!
Love Your Guts, Mandi
