I Almost Forgot to Tell You!!...Christmas with Chatty kelly and MyADHDMe
Every year Kelly and I exchange Christmas gifts. Even though we have both cut out exchanging with many other people, we always enjoy buying something fun, quirky or special for each other.
She gave me a really cool book. It is called "Imagine God's blog". by Lanny Donoho. It is written in blog form as the author would imagine God would write it. There was even a page or 2 about bubbles...you all know me and bubbles. I finished it pretty quick. It was an interesting and enjoyable read. There was something he wrote about Free Time that I want to share with you.
" There is no such thing as free time because time is a gift from God. It isn't free because every second, minute, and hour that you use, you have to give up something else. you must trade one thing for another. All transactions are final.
Make sure you fill up your time with things you can really use. After all, you could be out of time....really soon."
I'm quite sure he isn't saying not to take advantage of any "free" time...just that we need to PRIORITIZE our time".
Anyway, I liked that.
NOW, as for what I gave her. I used to be into gimmicks ands gadgets but over the years have gotten away from that. HOWEVER, this year I just couldn't resist. As you may know, Kelly has a MAJOR germ Phobia. I was thumbing thru a magazine called Things You Never Knew Existed and THERE IT WAS!! A UV Scanner, that was pocket sized. You just open it up. Hold it over just about any surface and PRESTO!, germs are sanitised. Works on sinks, toilet seats, handle bars, table tops, even fruit and just about anything. Also comes with a nice carrying case.
I was pretty syked about giving it to her. (psyched?)
So, Christmas Eve comes and we exchange gifts. I LOVE the book. As for the UV scanner, well, we take it out of the box and install the batteries. It won't close all the way when the batteries are in it. Also the batteries didn't work : ( . New batteries made it function but it still wouldn't stay closed.
SO, this awesome, unique and REALLY COOL gift needs to be exchanged. Sigh* . I was going to mail it back lst week. oppps. It's going tomorrow for sure,
Hopefully the new one will work.
Christmas is coming, (in just a tad over 300 days)
The goose is getting fat.
please put a penny in the old mans hat!!!
