Presents and packing

I spent quite a bit of time today wrapping presents. I love wrapping presents - I like doing things with bows and ribbons and that kind of thing - but I'll tell you, the fun of wrapping presents pales after a while. I spent about 2 hours wrapping, and it's really only fun for the first 1/2 hour and the last 10 minutes :) Plus I couldn't really put bows and ribbons and things on the gifts that are going to Edmonton because they just get crushed in the suitcase. When I get there I might add the decorative touches to the presents, maybe. .

I've also been rushing around packing today. I did do a list of things that I'm taking so that I don't forget anything important. I'm taking a suitcase just for the presents :) I'm only going to be away for a few days, but I still feel like I'm taking half my life with me :) I don't think that I'm overpacking too much, but I do want to be sure that I have warm clothes and clothes that are nice enough to wear out, in case I end up doing something in the evenings. I also need knitting for the times when I'm not doing anything at all. I'm not even close to being finished packing, of course - I've got quite a bit of yet to do in the morning. Guess I'd better get myself to sleep, then :)
