Yay!! I'm not the only woman who cheats with the Christmas wrapping. Let's all give the man, (or maybe it was a busy mom...), who came up with the idea, a gold star. One of the best things since sliced bread. I've gotten very lazy over the years, when it comes to the gifts. Almost every gift I give now; Christmas, birthday, Easter, goes into a bag, with a little tissue. But, at least I taught my two how to do the tissue, without it looking like a chimpanzee go ahold of it. They don't always do it...but, I taught them. (Of course, I also taught my son how to wash his clothes, years ago. Then, I find out, recently, that he has resorted to throwing all of his dirty clothes into the same wash load.

Oh, I think it would be fun to go shopping together!! I'm sorta visualizing TWO looney women racing around the store together with our carts yelling, "Hey! Come over here!! I just found a singing poinsetta that turns into a Christmas tree!!" We'd probably clear out the store & have it all to ourselves!!!

I don't know. If I peeked into the store and found only the two of you, I'd chance it. After all, that's one of the reasons I hate Christmas shopping is all the crowds!

That sounds great, but do they also carry a pair of scissors that only cuts in a perfectly straight line and cuts the exact amount of paper you need for each present? How about a device that automatically turns odd shaped containers into perfect squares that fit right into the last gift bag you have? Dare I dream?

Do they really have those? Where? Can I have one? I saw it first!
I'm just kidding, I think it would be fun too, we could conquer the entire store if there were 2 of us! Plus CelticLady could get some shopping done with no other people in the store.

How great would life be if that could be invented?! I thought I was the only one who had those problems
