Y’all, I am starting to feel the crunch! Tomorrow is December 12, which means there are 12 days until Christmas Eve and only 10 days until we leave for Texas and I have way too MUCH to do. I need more time! Either that or the ability to go a few days or a week without sleep. Of course if I did that who knows what my sewing would look like. I know what my writing looks like after a sleepless night…not good, not even straight, so sewing on no sleep is probably not such a hot idea. 😉

Luckily Ryan has agreed to wrap the gifts, he does a fantastic job and it takes a lot of what I have to do off my plate. I asked him if he’d do it if I brought all the stuff with me from Georgia and he agreed with no argument or convincing on my part. Such a good hubby. 🙂 Now I just have to box up his prezzies so he doesn’t know what he’s getting. 🙂 When I was a kid, my mom had me wrap my own gifts every year. She’d box everything up, I’d wrap it all and she’d put the labels on. I’d always get so irritated when I saw that I wrapped my own presents. You think I’d be better at wrapping presents but I think it’s my lack of spatial reasoning skills. I can’t look at a box and estimate how much paper I need. I either way under or over cut. Ryan has an artists eye (draftsman’s eye?) and can just look at a box and know exactly how much paper to cut. So, long story short, he’s wrapping the gifts.
