Wrapping It Up

I decided that, once and for all, I was going to conquer that inner-slacker and get the gifts wrapped BEFORE 11:59 Christmas I trudged upstairs tonight, after an evening of frivolity with our kids and their friends, to cover what was left of the pile of presents I had purchased. I had promised myself, and my husband, that we would be relaxed and focused on more of the deeper meaning of this holiday- that we wouldn't be consumed by the stress of "getting it together" and I'm relieved to say- I made it.

But I have to share, dear readers, that the very act of wrapping multiple presents, late at night, can really make you ADD brain gets all a-fluster, trying to remember, after each gift, where I put the scissors, the labels, the one point, I spent fifteen frustrating minutes scouring the surface of my bed, the floor, under the bed, wracking my brain for the location of the tape- and just as I was ready to call it a night and throw the unfinished items in a bag, I found it!!- laying underneath the package I had to wrap! Can we all say together-


About Me

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
Forty-three year-old, mother and staunch advocate of four young children, passionate warrior of truth and self, finding the soul in each day, sharing my struggles and triumphs as I live them. Mostly I do this for me, so my thoughts don't race as much at night as they used to. But I also give this to those of you who need to know, in any or every way, that you are not alone.
