When I get my package, I'm gonna be so stoked. I'll probably cuss all excitedly and fall up the stairs running to open it. I'm gonna take an obnoxious amount of pictures too lol.

So pretty! I'm sure you did great- the fact that you took the time to stalk and buy her things, wrap it and send it to her and you actually care about doing good should be proof enough =p

I keep trying to reach through my screen and grab the pretty packages, but my computer won't let me.  I think it's broken.  

 

You have a very lucky Santee!

Dear Santee,

 

I'm so sorry I haven't mailed your gift yet! I promise I will mail it soon. I'm working late today so by the time I leave work, the post office will be closed. I promise I will try my hardest to mail it out tomorrow. If not, it will definitely be mailed out on Friday because I am not going to work that day! I'm super excited for you to get your present and I hope you love it!

So I'm sharing with my ex-beau in Colorado (the flame's still burning, I'm in NY, long story) on the whole secret santa and the presents I got and he's like excited with me, then sorta quiet, then he enthusiasctically said "make me a list of what you want and need"

 

He's in the Navy and I can't tell you how many Navy T-shirts, long-sleeves, turtle necks and Navy regulation stud earings I got.  All the clothing is just too large for my size 4 petite frame, unisex seizing or men's....   He shops for me in the uniform commisary.  It's really sweet but I just can't wear anymore Navy stuff, plus like I'm not even in the Navy....

 

Here's a new angle of thanks Secret Santa Doubleshot!

I have a package for pick up at the post office. :smilehappyyes:​  I think it may be a SS gift. I can't think of what else it could be. I guess I'll find out in the morning!

Ok, So when I was at the post office waiting for the dude to get my I was eyeballing the flat rate boxes. So I have a question- I think I might be able to fit everything into the $12 box- the box is gonna be kinda weighty (probably at least 4 pounds?)- you guys think the flat rate would be the best option?

Yes!  Flat rate is one price no matter how much it weighs!  I sent a 9lb box to the midwest and it was $18, a 3 lb box to different part of the midwest for $12.  They charge you based on box size, weight and where it is going otherwise-if you do not use flat rate boxes.  I wish I would have used the flat rate but I thought using my own box was cheaper and it was not.

I've attempted to contact the postal service to no avail. Please post this in the forum to have folks give me some advice on how to handle this. I'm so worried she won't get her gift! Should I just give it a few more days?"

USPS seems really crazy lately, I have had packages showing no movement until it gets delivered or things that say delivered but have not shown up to our post office. Hope her package shows up soon. I would advice to call the post office and see if there is anything that can be done.

Agreed the mail seems really bogged down!  I mailed a trade on 12/2/13 and it left the sorting facility in my town on 12/3/13.  There was nothing updating on it until late last night when it reached a large city near them and was processed and finally delivered today!  I think with the volume of mail they are handling things do not get scanned or get missed.

Depends how far it's going :) I was kicking myself for not using a flat rate box, but then it actually ended up being cheaper in the Sephora box I used. I think mine was 5ish lbs, but just going from Wisconsin to Illinois.

I was one of those kids who would always managed to figure out my gifts before Christmas (and if you asked my fiancé, he would say I'm still like that!) so not having a way to at least figure out who my Santa is is driving me crazy! I can't wait until Monday to find out! Haha oh man, I'm so impatient!

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
