I hope I'm not the only one..................
So I just finished wrapping all the Christmas gifts with the exception of the ones Katie and Alex are giving. I always get stuck with the wrapping. Why I don't know, it's not like I'm super good at it and Eric has to fully functional hands to wrap with. We bought wrapping paper this year and the man who never wraps gifts thought we should get ribbon AND bows to wrap the gifts with. Really? Ribbons and Bows?? We only got bows because bows are easy....peel the thingy off, smash it on the gift and there you go. Done. I asked him if he was going to take the time to do the ribbon on the gifts. He said, "Bows are good." Yeah, that's what I thought. I'm digressing, sorry.
So, as I'm wrapping gifts I notice something. When I started I was very carefully folding the paper, using my best handwriting on the tags and choosing a bow whose color coordinated with the paper. This lasted about 3 gifts in. As the wrapping progressed things went downhill. By the end of it it looked like a 3 year old hyped up on caffeine and sugar had folded paper willy nilly over some misshapen unidentifiable mass, scribbled unintelligible names on tags (we'll figure out whose is whose after we open them), and grabbed bows out the bag without looking. I learned something about myself.........I don't like wrapping gifts. Next year everything is going in a bag with tissue paper..........and maybe a bow;)
