I am a doof

I went to go see my Uncle John today to exchange gifts and visit. Well, I was in such a hurry I grabbed the wrong gift and when he opened it I was so embarrassed. The last two of our Christmas Gifts were wrapped in the same paper about the same size, but two totally different gifts.
John opened a book. oops. That is not right................ So I emphatically apologized and felt bad for opening mine. But it is such a cool gift ! It was such a neat surprise.

HE bought me one of those Atomic clocks, with the moon phases, inside and outside temps.
Love it! It updates every 4 seconds. We put the outside reader dealie out on our gazebo where the Weather station dealie sits too. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr it is sure cold outside. 33 degrees !!

So tomorrow night after work I am going back over to Johns and give him the correct gift. ugh..
I am such a doof ! I was glad to see him and visit. He is coming to my house for brunch next month, his favorite is Salmon so that is what will be on the menu. I am so glad the holidays are over, kids back to school and back on a diet. ha ha ha

Hey, it's the thought that counts. I'm glad that he is close enough to you that you can drop off the right one.

I love that gift he gave you!
