Mom, You are Weird!

My husband brought home this really neat projector that disassembles so that you can store it in a bag. I was so excited to finally have my own projector. When I do art projects for the church we attend I usually have to have my husband bring one home from the congregation. I just had to show it to my daughters. My 14 year old daughter looked at me and said, "Mom you are weird. Most moms want new shoes or Coach purses and you want a projecter. I wasn't offended because I hear this all the time. My birthday request are different too, a book, new tool, or something like that. I always tell them if you ask me what I want then I always make request for something I can really use or need thats just the way I am. For Mothers Day I had my husband buy me a French Door my friends thought that was really weird.

I am glad that you get what you really need.
As a creative person, we always see things differently, therefore we have a different request.

I am weird too.
I don't even have a TV at home.
My sister and my sister in law came back from other states hoping to watch a live football match. Sadly, I can't deliver their request simply for I don't have a TV. It's not that I can't afford one...but I rather spend my time do some good reading....
Yaah, so much weird stuff to share, until next time, when I have the opportunity, I will continue ....

Ha ha. That is just the sort of Birthday wish I would make. Some times I think, "Ya know, I could really use a new sweater this winter....but I think I'll just buy a new paper cuter instead.
Also, your daughter's comment is priceless.

Art supplies are usually my gift of choice. They are much more fun than a purse. They can become so many things. A purse will just always be a purse.
