Surely, you know of my mad wrapping skills!?!
I began the wrapping of the pressies this weekend.
I took everything out of the hidey closet and all the way downstairs Friday when I got home from school.
It’s weird how that damn sofa always photographs taupey when it’s the most gorgeous soft gray color…but I digress.
I hauled everything down two flights of stairs and got to work. Friday afternoon, I wrapped the gifts the boys chose for YBW first so they’d already be finished when he got home.
After I finished YBW’s gifts, I wrapped everything for the boys. That way, when the come back home from their mother’s house on Friday, they’ll be able to go downstairs even if I’m not finished wrapping.
I was dying to break out the new paper Thing 2 and I bought at Target so I decided to wrap a pressie I bought myself.
So much freaking glitter in this paper! My hands, leggings, and the floor were covered. I had it all over my face and in my hair. Good golly did it make my nose itch!
Today I wrapped for Thing 1 and her husband N. Tomorrow I’ll wrap Thing 2’s gifts. I want to get them to the post office the end of this week just in case of any shipping delays.
Here’s what I’ve wrapped so far…so much more to go.
I love to wrap gifts as much as I love to do laundry. It was pointed out to me that they’re similar tasks. I agreed and remarked that the stimulate my OCD in the same way.
Nothing quite as satisfying as perfectly folded laundry still warm from the dryer.
Nothing quite as pretty as a perfectly wrapped pressie.
I’m TOTALLY the happy elf, y’all!
Is it cool for a guy to admit that he knows what colour ‘taupey’ is? You have fabulous present wrapping skills. If you wish you can wrap the gifts from me to my teddy bear Marmaduke. I like Harry Connick, Jr. But then I am a very cool guy, and not taupey at all. ❤ ❤ ❤
