Some number of hours ago I posted a bit about my current trial and tribulation, well this is the sequel-----I had to go to three different stores to acquire a box, of some equitable size to accommodate the gift. Believe it or not I found what I needed at Fed Ex Kinko's. Then of course I just HAD to have wrapping paper, and plain brown wouldn't cut it, so off to other stores, where I found wrappings that pleased my sensibilites , and a third store for a card to go with the gift. Then of course I dashed home to DO the wrapping.
I most definitely miss the lil Princes talents in the sphere of gift wrapping-----this is the first year I have had to wrap gifts in over a decade, and unfortunately the end result definitely shows my lack of skill in that arena.. However I finally got the job done , and I don't know the name of the saint that invented scotch tape, but BLESS YOU, whoever you are. It was a terrible job, but somebody had to do it!! Just remember Alexi, years from now when you look back and talk of this occasion------and you will----be kind.
Now all I have to do is decide what to wear-----hmmm, maybe I should do laundry now that I think about it? ((sigh, it just never stops does it?)
