Has anyone else noticed that it is only 16 more days until Christmas? Which means there are only 12 more days to get those presents wrapped and shipped out if you are going to do so.
Which is exactly what I did today (except the whole shipping part, which will happen tomorrow).
I have to be in the right mood to wrap presents, because when I’m going to do it, I want the whole shebang done in one fell swoop so I don’t have to clean off the table, grab all the wrapping crap and and make a huge mess more than once.
There is one advantage to me getting it done early this year, because as I was sorting everything out, I realized that I was missing a couple presents. So OK, I’ve got to make a slight mess once those arrive.
*Insert appropriate word of frustration here*
It didn’t take long for my wrapping inspector to show up to make sure that I was doing a good job. After all, these presents were being shipped to family members, so neatness counted.
And when you are in the middle of a marathon wrapping session, there is no time to break away and have a decent meal, so it’s important to have well-balanced, nutritious snacks available.
Or in this case Cheetos.
Thor also doubles as a nutritionist. He’s a cat of many talents.
Of course, where would I be without a box inspector. I was sweating it there for a while, but eventually I got final approval to carry on.
Cats are tough man!
And no, Thor was not shipping her to Abu Dhabi.
