You have gotten some interesting gifts! Happy Holiday's!
Love the lovely overnight trip.... NCAA Finals...
Certainly different types of gifts.
You are too funny! NCAA Finals? I'm there! A month's house cleaning service? Love it! As for the others...you do inspire a certain uniqueness in gifts, Jill.
Wow, those were some pretty strange gifts. I love the plant story!
I have had my children buy me clothes I would never put on and about 5 times larger than I am, yet I still have them in my closet hanging (I am too sentimental to let them go).
I laughed like crazy over your killing a fake plant. I have had so many plants to die this year because of our drought even though I tried to water then every single day. The terrible heat still managed to kill some of them. Losing plants and replacing them gets expensive after awhile. But thanks for the huge laugh I got after reading you watering a fake plant!
Jill, you're too funny! I have never read any of your interviews but I have read your books. I found your books hilarious which I would deduce that you have a humorous personality.
I love your books. They are such fun to read. Reading your list of Christmas gifts was a hoot too.
you win! my, but the wonderful things they do with plastics these days - certainly a testament to the realistic plant - bet the manufacturer would LOVE that story...
Oh Lord - I love these - LOL - VERY interesting gifts for sure - nothing I received came close!
I loved your posting today, and definately needed the laugh!! As for the housecleaning service, one way to look at it is that you only received one month of it. Things couldn't be THAT bad at your house, or your present would have been for 6 months or a year!! LOL With my house, I want my company to feel comfortable when they come over, not feel that they might break a rule if they sit down somewhere!! Some of the other gifts go without comment. I know that I received a couple of strange ones over the years, and now we just go out together and buy what we want for ourselves. It solves the problem of disappointment. Once in a while, we do surprise each other with a present, but it isn't that often. After 29 years, things aren't the same in the excitement department as they would be for the first 10 years - at least that's the way I feel. I'm just happy that we're together, and that's all that matters to me!! Have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!! I'll be spending mine away from the mistletoe, reading your book!!
Hi, Jill! Great post! I love your books! You have definitely gotten some very interesting gifts. I especially had to chuckle about the glow in the dark gummy worm. Lol!
You have gotten some great gifts ! Wished mine was so awesome .
Well, I have never killed a fake plant, but I have just about managed to kill off any other plant that came within my purview. My friends know not to ask me to plant-sit, or take care of their gardens in the summer, at least, not if they want to come home to living plants!!
I love the killing the fake plant!! And you were very brave to accept a
My brother once made me a wooden jewellery box and his then girlfriend painted pictures of horses on each face of it and lined a drawer with satin. Best present ever. I had no idea they were making it.
I love your books. I have always liked books that continue in
