For starters I waited until the last minute to mosey on over to Wal-Mart to buy groceries for my Christmas dinner. WHY on earth did I do that? While scurrying around the store, I was asked by Wal-Mart personnel to take my purchases to the front for checkout. If I worked at Wal-Mart, I would detest people like me that wait until the last minute AND shop after the store's POSTED closing hours. On behalf of all inconsiderate shoppers, I apologize to all retail personnel I ever kept from leaving at the end of their scheduled shift. My bad.
After waiting in the horrendous check out lines at Wal-Mart, I returned home and sat down to wrap my boy's gifts. Well, as I started gathering my purchases and wrapping supplies I soon discovered...NO WRAPPING PAPER! I forgot I used the paper my mom gave me to wrap gifts for our Pre-Christmas celebration at her house the day before. Check out my montage of Christmas at MiMi's.
dallyed for about 15 minutes, and concluded the vacuum SUCKummbed due to natural causes...RIP DD (short for Dirt Devil).
So...after the long Wal-Mart lines, the wrapping paper adventure AND dealing with my vacuum's untimely demise, I decided to make US some cocktails...BIG MISTAKE! I poured myself 1 shot of Hypnotic and my little "happy hour" turned into something more like happy minutes. The Hypnotic hypnotized me right to sleep.
I originally planned for us to enjoy cocktails, snacks and a movie. You know the saying about the best laid plans. Instead of enjoying the movie and snacks, I woke up apologizing for drooling on my friend while sleeping (Lol). Needless to say he called it a night, and my presents still sat unwrapped. Long story short, I woke up the next morning, wrapped the kid's gifts and placed them under the tree.
- No last minute grocery shopping
- Keep extra gift wrap on hand
- Wrap gifts before cocktail hour
