Christmas Eve

Well, I came into a smidge of money, so I decided to go shopping for a couple of Christmas gifts for my girls today. To tell you the truth, I was a bit scared of what I might encounter when I headed out to the mall today. Amazingly, the mall was not at all crowded!

First, we found a great parking space right where we wanted to park. Then, the stores we went into were practically empty, and there was no line to wait for check-out. And, I only had to wait behind one person when we went to Chick-fil-A in the food court.

The funny thing about it was that even though the mall wasn't crowded, and there were plenty of parking spaces available in the lot, the traffic going in and out of the mall was still bad. Go figure!

So, here I am at nearly 11:00 at night, still wrapping Christmas presents. Ugh! If I wasn't such an OCD perfectionist, I could get Phil to help with the wrapping, or spend less time wrapping each gift myself. Either way, I'd save time. I'd go absolutely bat-shit crazy, but I'd save time!

Merry Christmas to you all!

Don't feel bad, I just finished wrapping presents too, so you're not alone!

I wonder what the difference is in hours spent wrapping vs. hours spent unwrapping each christmas. Way to put in the effort.

I'm totally OCD, but not about wrapping presents. The fact is that I just plain hate to do it!!! I had two friends willing to help me this year and I totally took them up on their offer. Theirs were the "good" wrapped presents, lol!

So when you take a break, post some Christmas pics!!! I wanna see!
