Today I Returned My Mother’s Day Present

pondJay bought me a big screen monitor for Mother’s Day. It was a lovely gesture, though I had never mentioned wanting a new monitor. My old monitor works perfectly fine. I used the new one for a day before I realized that it didn’t have built in speakers, like my old monitor did. So I had a big monitor I didn’t really need or want and NOW we needed to buy speakers to go with it.

Sorry. Not interested. What I really wanted for Mother’s Day was a fountain, and Jay had proceeded to build a pond  with spitters and plants and goldfish. THAT was cool. And it cost more than anticipated, of course. I did NOT need the $140 monitor w/o speakers in addition to my pond.

So, I returned it.

Always keep receipts until you are certain you aren’t going to return anything. 😉
