Wrapping presents is for the birds.


Wednesday, December 19, 2012

I am soooooo tired. This evening all my kids drove off to visit their dad, and I decided it was time to wrap presents. Oh, my goodness....I feel as though I wrapped about six hundred of them. It was never ending. I was wrapping things I had bought, but also things my siblings had bought and had sent here directly, mostly from Amazon.

And just when I thought the end was finally in sight, I went out to the car to get one last present...and there were two more boxes sitting on the front step! Boxes from Amazon, full of more presents waiting to be wrapped. I am about ready to strangle my brother and his wife, who seem to be singlehandedly keeping Amazon in the black this year, and who didn't have to wrap a single present themselves! (Just kidding)

So, I did all this wrapping, cleaned up the mess, put all the wrapped presents away, brought down tons of dirty laundry (after all, I was coming downstairs anyway), and sat down to get online and rest for a few minutes...when, boom, the kids got back home. Sigh.

I have to work tomorrow and Thursday, but I am really looking forward to Friday. I think I just may make some truffles!

    I feel the same way about wrapping presents! Normally I don't mind it, but this year it just feels like drudgery. And it always takes longer than you think it will take. Maybe that's part of it. Not sure, but I *think* you can ask amazon to send free holiday gift boxes with your order so all you have to do is put it in and tape the lid down when you get it.. if so, maybe a friendly suggestion to your brother and his wife is in order? (for next year) ;) On the bright side, sounds like you're getting it all done early so there will be no mad midnight wrapping the night before Christmas at your house. Way to go! And have a truffle or two- you deserve it. emoticon
