Wrapping presents is a work out!

Today, I spent half the day wrapping presents. I did it cause it needed to get done and to avoid the real work of organizing my home. I hit a wall a few days ago on the move in organizing and I just don’t care anymore. The wrapping was hard work and I don’t look forward to doing it again for another 11 1/2 months. This week there was a lady who went viral on the internet for posting a picture of her Christmas tree which was 3/4 of the way covered in presents. She got a lot of backlash for that. Apparently, it’s a thing for people to brag on Facebook about the quantity of presents they give their kids so she was kicking off that season???? I don’t have any friends who do that!?!? It must be the same people who don’t #optoutside. (LOL 🙂 ) At any rate, I don’t know why anyone would want a tree covered up by gifts, I actually LOVE a decorated tree. I grew up going to the mountains to hunt for our Christmas trees. My mom was partial to piñon pines and they were really ugly. So… we had some goofy looking trees in the seventies, but then I balked a lot and insisted on more attractive trees. ALWAYS REAL!  As an adult in Oregon, the land of gorgeous Christmas trees, we always used a fake. You buy it once and it’s pre-lit! Do you enjoy wrapping presents or just UNWRAPPING?
