I hate waiting. I am not waiting on anything for me at the moment but to hear from a good friend how an interview went. You would think this waiting would be easier but let me explain, by a trip down memory lane, how much I hate waiting.
As a young child, I would look with awe at the Christmas tree. I waited for Christmas Eve to roll around as we always got to open on gift on Christmas Eve. That was fine but by the time I was a teenager, I was an adept re-wrapper. I would literally open gifts and re-wrap them. Not just mine to see what I was getting but other people’s too.
Okay, so fast forward. I seldom have a surprise under the tree. I do most of the holiday shopping at my house. I know, with almost 100% certainty, what is under the tree. Of course, since I know what I was like as a teenager and since most of my kids are teenagers or older, I am holding off on wrapping until the last possible moment. I do not want them re-wrapping while I sleep some night.
What about you? Do you know what you are getting this holiday season? What are you waiting for?
