Guess What?!?!?!

Guess what, guess what, guess what?!?!

Dad got me a medium, black Bamboo Wacom Tablet for my birthday!!! Yeah! (insert dancing smilie here!!) I've got to be honest, I was a little disappointed on Monday when he brought a big gift bag in for me, and it had 2 picture frames, 4 blouses/jackets, and a cucumber melon air freshener for my car (yum) 'cause he's normally pretty good to me with the techie stuff that he knows I'm looking for. But, then too he's helped me out a lot lately like paying for my trannie since I didn't have the money atm, so I figured, ok maybe Mother's Day...

Then last night he pulls into the drive behind me when I got home, and gives me the tablet!! AND, mint chocolate brownies with mint frosting!! (The gingerbread house was way cute, but having been made on Friday was a tad bit hard to eat on Monday! LOL)

I got one LO done last night...

Gotta' go shovel my way out of the drive.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

PS - I just had to add how odd it is that the kindness of an almost stranger can make me so happy... Last night my car was pulled all the way up into the drive because of Dad stopping by so there was a full car length behind me that would need to be shoveled... Only one of my neighbors, whom I've never really spoken with, used his 4 wheeler to plow out all the drive behind my car, the walk, and the path over to the oil tank fill just before I went out the door this morning!

Hi hon, finally stopping by to read about your new toy. Yipeeeeee! How exciting for you. I almost got a laptop today but restrained myself. Have a good night. Will most likely end up stopping by after work nowadays.
