25 Days of Christmas (Day 7)

Present wrapping.. I have to say, I really enjoy it. Love it? No. But I do enjoy it, though I am not the best at it. You can see lines and creases. I don't use ribbons or bows.

It's either just in pretty wrapping paper with a name tag, boxed, or in a gift bag with tissue.

One of the reasons being that with three kids to wrap gifts for, I can't take hours on end of wrapping and wrapping and...

Also, thanks to my back and the fact that my basement bedroom is nothing more than a concrete slab with a carpet on top, I can't sit there for very long. After three epidurals and a spinal in the space of five years, my back is pretty much shot in the lower region.

So, what may take most people no more than maybe two or three hours (if even that), takes me most of the time DOUBLE. Yesterday, I started wrapping presents at 2:30. I stopped at about 8:00 last night. And that was after breaks of about 15 minutes each, every 45 minutes, thanks to my back aching so badly.

Today, I plan on finishing what we have left. Then, once I can shop for my husband, and Hayley can shop for Skyler, being that that is the only kid-to-kid purchase left, I can wrap them and be DONE.

So with that said, how are you with gift wrapping? Do you enjoy it, or loath it? Do you go all out, or just a "plain Jane/Jerry" wrapper (like me lol)?
