Omg I just got through with a marathon wrapping session, I am talking 8 hours!!. I thought no biggee I can do this and started having jay bring down all the loot from upstairs. But then the pile kept growing around me and I started feeling a sense of dread specially since Jay only wraps my presents. And I had got a late start to shopping this year so this last month I have been shopping every week and where last year I did at least half of my shopping online this year it was me out braving the stores and then hauling it all home(remember no car here). After the first present my shoulders were on fire and my mid and low back were screaming but I kept going and after a while I just sorta went numb till I got to the very last present(thats right I wrapped presents for all 4 grandkids,my daughter,my mom,my brothers and SILs ,niece and nephew and thats multiple gifts a piece all in one sitting)but anyway I got to that last gift and all that pain came rushing back at once omgggggg owwwwwwieeeee!!!! I told Jay I could not wrap one more gift and I didnt, there is only one left, sad I know. I did also discover the wrist tape and will never go back to to the other tape again,no more searching for the roll and having it get all stuck in a ball and trying to hold the paper just right while you try and get a piece of tape off. But I found my dispenser at the dollar store and bought tons of re-fills for it so hardly no cost there hehe.
So now we move on to this morning or should I say this afternoon? since I didnt wake up till noon. I got up and took some pain meds at 5 am cause I was hurting so bad and then just passed out,maybe my bodys way of trying to heal? so now I am here waiting for my meds to kick in again and oh my I hurt everywhere so bad,oh and I forgot, to make the pain worse me and Jayson decided to go for it with the whoopiiiii yesterday and it did work out great for a change but that is more added pain so hoping it doesnt go into a flair. We did finally get the tree up too and what a big mother it is,almost 8 feet tall and a very full noble but so beautiful and of course I got to decorate the whole thing. Jay did put all the lights on but left me to the rest he is just not into it and says I am too anal about wanting all the decorations placed just so. This year he wanted a blue and silver tree so all new ornaments and house decorations since the green and gold wouldnt go with it so all new garlands for the bannister and doorways. And we put all LED lights on it and omg talk about neon!!!! took some getting used to at first it made me sick lol but if you buy them you dont need near as many as the reg lights since they are so bright and they are spaced 6 inches instead of 4 apart so they go farther, needless to say we bought just as many as when we used the reg lights so have extras but these will burn for hundreds of hours so they are worth the cost. Hope everyone tries to not do like me and pace themselves yikes but ya know next year I will probably over do again I always do!!!
P.s. to vestabula........high five on keeping it to just 10 bucks on grandkid,that would make me nuts!!! and I did cut back from last year. One big present and then some books and pj's for each kid instead of lots of big exspensive gifts each becuase it truly was over kill and they were getting spoiled.
