Christmas isn't meant to be viewed as a marathon. I do, however, feel like I'm at mile 23. My mom called this evening to say that they would be by to pick chairs up that we had borrowed. I decided that I would dash through and bag up all of the presents I had to send to their house. I had the Christmas Eve bag with 6 gifts. I had two large bags and two gifts of overflow for Christmas Day. I was able to give a quick evaluation, re-wrap one that got the front punched out somehow, wrap two more (and add batteries to the one) and get those dropped into the sack, too. I was just finishing the last package when my parents came in.
I'm waiting for K to go to sleep so that I can make some earrings for her for her special gift from me. I'm just making some really tiny drop earrings, but I have to get them done.
K's baby arrived today. K got her baby hamster. Yes, I'll take photos later. I can tell you that he is charcoal with a white racing stripe on his underside. Miss Stephanie gave her good instructions, have changed what we typically feed. (We fed H exactly what they told us.) K is so very excited and Miss Stephanie was thrilled that K is so very caring and is completely responsible for every aspect of care of the hamster. He is a baby. He is very squealy. He's keeping her awake, but I told her that she needs to get used to him and he needs to get used to her. The wheel rides again!
Off I go to check to see if Sleeping Beauty is sleeping so that I can make her gift.
