OK, I don't really. Usually Amber does it, often in a marathon overnighter of wrapping, bows, and Sharpie ink. But Amber lives 45 miles away now, and has two kids, so it would be pretty silly to make her come up and wrap my presents for me. Besides, I'm not in school full time right now, so I don't have an excuse. And this year Sharman and Chris have wrapped a lot for me.
Why am I still complaining? It's Christmas. It should be fun.
Except it's boring. I'm not getting in any knitting time (see it hiding behind the candy canes?)
I have to come up with things to liven it up.
Things to do while wrapping presents:
Where to put them when they're wrapped is a problem. Last year the kids figured out I was hiding gifts in the window seat in the toy room. Was that before or after they broke the cover to the window seat? Anyway, that hiding place is out. The computer room window seat is available, but I would have to move gift wrap and a pirate ship to get to it.
I am going with big plastic bins. I suppose they might end up back in my closet. But at least the gifts will be wrapped.
*I can't stand it, I think that is so funny. You should email your guess, though, and not put it in the comments or everyone will copy you. Let's say a deadline of Wednesday 12/17, how 'bout?
