Whine and Anti whine--a Note to Phantom

As seen over at Phantom's, here are a couple whines:

Whine: I have so many stupid presents to wrap. AK!

And I'm not good at it!

Anti-whine: At least I have a lot of my shopping done.

Whine: But then there are those things I couldn't find or acquire. People I have no gifts for. AK!

Anti whine: hmm, that one's a little harder. Ah, duh. DUH? (Help!)

(It's bad enough if they are grown-ups, but much worse if they are small children.)

{OK, I've been taking a break from my work, from stuff that bogs me down to stuff that lightnes me, LOL, but I'd better get back to work! Enough, already!}

I would advise you to be judicious with the tape when wrapping presents for Margaret. The one small prezzie from Rob took her about 10 minutes to contend with.

Christmas is going to exhaust her.

I have nothing for Margaret yet--and no ideas, either. :-(

Nadine said...

Me neither. Chocolate?

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Well, chocolate is what I've alrways gotten her, but she doesn't spend much time in her room and it is not good to eat before meals or before bed . . . .

SO I am confusled.

Iookiyeh and Zeeces. I want to stop Christmasing and write a story about characters with the names of the word verification.

I got her some chocolates and two pairs of those fuzzy socks, taller ones I think than some of those she has now. It's not much, but I think it's enough because of the exhaustion factor.

I also have presents from Tom & Rita and Rob & Vonnie to deliver. If I go up Christmas morning, I may take them then, to space out the celebrating a bit for her. I think all at once might be too much for her to handle.
