  • Hmm...maybe you should make it fun? Put on some music and make some hot chocolate, something festive that will get you into the holiday mood, yanno?

  • It is a major chore, that is why. I just spent most of the day wrapping. I didn't plan to do so much, just a few things to start getting organized, but once I got the paper and tape and scissors and pen and bags and tissue paper and lists and presents and boxes out then it just made sense to keep going. I finally decided enough was enough. I still have the grandchildrens' stuff to do but will do them another time. After all of the wrapping then there is the carrying the gifts to where they will be stored and the clean up of all the bits and pieces and storing all the wrapping stuff away. (You'd never guess that I am very tired would you. heh! )

  • I wish I could start. I have to wait for the muchkins to go to bed and they've not been too cooperative in that area.
