Wrap it Up
I work with several people who are more organized than me. One of them is Jura Koncius, who wrote today's set of stories about gift-wrapping. Jura shops for gifts all year long. In early December, she erects a wrapping station in her basement and each night she emerges with several nicely dressed presents to put under her tree.
When I was growing up, my mother would set aside one night, usually around this date in December, to wrap every present except for the ones slated for me. I would help by holding the paper as she quickly taped it all together and when I got older, I got to write the gift tags. It was always a festive evening, just she and I, wrapping and talking. Now that I'm an adult, I'm not nearly as organized as she is, but looking forward to the years when my daughter can stay up and help me dress the presents.
I suspect that many of us are going to be doing some wrapping soon, if we haven't started already. I have not. Well, I did wrap a few presents to send back to Michigan with my in-laws, who came for Thanksgiving. But that was November! It seems like years ago.
In addition to her stories in today's Home section, Jura helped produce the video that actually shows how to wrap a present. I have watched it several times and have found it helpful. Hope you do too.
