Look what secret Santa sent me!

My secret Santa sent cash as in actual, real money. Santa told me to put it toward the laptop I'm saving for, so I guess when I get my new laptop, I'll have to post a pic of it too. Meanwhile:

OMG! hehehehe....gotta love that Santa. Except I would've folded those bills into something, like a shirt, pants, boat, heart, ring, etc. Would've made it more interesting, eh?

From now on when some guy leaves money on MY nightstand, I'm going to call it "Secret Santa" money too! ;-)

I'm so happy for you Sam. Your SS knew what you really needed and provided it.
That is a most excellent choice.

Thanks to a little help from SS and all the extra hours I put in at the Bates, I am going to get my laptop this week. I just have to wait until the weather clears, since I am driving all the way to Farmington to pick it up at the Best Buy there. I'm with Bruce. I refuse to buy a laptop from the local Wally World.

I had a Secret un-Santa present yesterday.
I knew roughly what it was a soon as I checked my post - an envelope from America branded Make A Wish. It was either from Sheldon or a really bizarre coincidence.

I checked with Shel just in case and was given permission to open.

I was so exceited - all girly and squealy because I didn 't expect anything. In fact I'd been pouty because someone else here got Sheldon as their Secret Santa.

He didn't disappoint.
I haven't taken pictures yet, but I will post them when I do.
I got a card with a fairy-lit cactus - of course.
A Make a Wish calendar, which made me quite sniffly as it has photos of the children they have helped, what their illness is and what they did for them. A keyring - which is really classy and went on my keys today.

But most special of all, Sheldon made a donation in my name to the Make A Wish Foundation, and the certificate was enclosed. I've helped children in dreadful circumstances for Christmas. Or rather Sheldon has done so through his own generosity.

Thanks Sheldon, for thinking of me and of course thinking of the charity.
You're good folks.
