Yes, this is Rachael wrapped. I’m not fixing it.
I hate wrapping gifts. Always have. If it’s not a book or a CD, I can’t wrap it. I’ve been known to use duct tape and newspaper. It’s not pretty. Every year, I buy a couple of rolls of Christmas paper and then I throw the remainder out after the holidays (okay, I recycle it) because I hate wrapping paper that much. Gifts during the year are given in bags that I’ve been given gifts in. God bless the people who give me gifts in bags. Otherwise, I throw some ripped paper around the gift, stick tape on it, enough to hold (although I was running out tonight and only had strapping tape left in the kitchen, so I used little slivers of tape instead of my usual streamers, so it may be an ugly Christmas).
Also, I’ve lost the sharpie I was using to write: MOM! From RACHAEL! on the wrapping paper (tags and bows, phooiee). I think I may have wrapped it into something at one point.
Anyway. Now I’m watching Lala wrap gifts. She’s actually good at it, and I’m NOT DOING IT, so I’m fine. Kinda fun this way. (She’s says I’m not bad at it, just differently abled.)
I’ll be out of town for a while, so I’ll be absent from blogland, but happiest of holidays, whichever you celebrate. MWAH!
