In the "Can't Believe I said That" light:

3 days ago, my mother: "Here is a blanket made from Alpaca. It's from ________. Keep it in the family, if you can."
3 days ago, myself: "This thing itches! I don't want it!"
Mom: "Take it anyway!"
Me: "Um, okay..." Shuffle off to the car, still insisting there is no place for this thing and it weighs a ton, blah blah blah.
Yesterday, my mother: "I'm giving you the large wooden bread board (HUGE is more like it) that Grandpa made for me. You make breads, pizza; you'll use it."
Yesterday, myself: "WHY ARE YOU GIVING AWAY YOUR STUFF? ARE YOU DYING?!"

My mom does the same thing.

Hee! If your mom is like mine, here is how you get her to take the crap back.

I tell my mom I'm donating it to charity and she will immediately take it back. Awful, huh?

My mother has finally gotten it through her head that I will not take ANYTHING home with me.

I love Caro's strategy.
