Wrap it up.
I was going to wrap gifts. I walked into the room where I moved the gifts,I stood there looking at them spread out before me and I put one into a waiting box. And then I left, the room was too cold and I didn't think that I wanted to wrap anything in there.
I hadn't thought about the room temperature being a factor in my many reasons for not wanting to wrap gifts. I thought I had all of my avenues blocked. The "I hate my paper, its old and now it makes me sad"- Wrapping paper makes you sad? You make me "sad"! What kind of paper did you buy 75% off after Christmas at Big Lots that comes with an expiration date? They don't sell anything with an expiration date. If they sold eggs, they would be eggs that can stay on the shelf forever. Don't talk to me about wrapping paper that is "too old".
I bought new discounted Big Lots wrapping paper. But not very much, I don't want it to still be hanging around next Christmas making me sad.
The "Oops, I don't have any tape! Well, I'm going to have to not do this now. I know that no where in this house are tape bundles,I never buy tape bundles every year and then forget about it and buy more. I couldn't patch the roof with the shear amount of tape I have in this house" . LIAR. Sure, you can't buy tape everywhere, they are selling it in bakeries, the Church wants you to buy tape as a fund raiser.This is not a viable excuse.
I bought another bundle of tape.
The "I'm not really through shopping/ still waiting delivery as yet. I don't want to have to get all the stuff out again in a few days for just a couple of things. I am trying to be efficient here!
The "some of these are oddly shaped and it will be "fun" to search for the right box/solution
"I'm not sure I'm ready emotionally for this step"
"If I get everything wrapped, Christmas is over"
