greetings of the season
So. Small group of friends coming over for dinner tonight. Should be stress-free, as I indicated on my e-vite.
And I'm not stressing.... exactly. I'm somewhat paralyzed, as I can't clean without moving some packages that need to be mailed out of the way. But I can't move those packages out of the way without stacking them, but I don't have any packing tape (which would also enable me to go ahead and mail them, through that handy-dandy USPS auto-machine! love it. Except gosh, you really do kind of save lots by purchasing online + printing out your own label! a-hem).
And I've got to run to the grocery, where I could pick up said packing tape. Except I've also got to pick up a holiday shirt for the hubs, and possibly some stocking holders for the mantle, and I believe (if I'm lucky) those stores open up at 11. So, I should just wait til those stores open, right?
sigh. maybe I am just this much of a procrastinator.
but, lucky me, white elephant gift is in the bag! (well, literally, a j crew box :) And, for tangent number 80 bajillion: have any of you stopped into Anthropologie lately + said your purchase is a gift? They give you the most delightful felt "blossom" (okay, just a circle, but still!) on a shoestring for packaging, and it is *darling*! I think it could be a sash! But a shoestring, perhaps not...)
Happy Sunday thoughts to all :)
