My Worst Holiday Moment This Year

Picture found here.

If you've read here in the past few weeks, you'll probably know that my time and I have been stretched thin.

So, I've done a lot of delegating. But couldn't delegate everything & was up late Christmas Eve finishing that which I did not delegate.
Namely wrapping. I was a tired wrapper. I was not taking pride in my work. I just wanted to get it done.

Now, please imagine my eleven year old son picking up a present from under the tree and kindly carrying it to his father to be unwrapped.

And with my freshly rested eyes, I said, "Oh man, I did a really bad job wrapping that one. Yuck."
mr b said, "I wrapped it."

Guilt = much.
Christmas breakfast = humble pie.
Years of grief they will give me = many.
I am so sorry mr b.


  1. TEE HEE HEE!!! Sorry babe, you will pay for that one for a long time. I'm still waiting for Hawaii pics. What was your favorite part?

  2. Lissa, your blog is wonderful....I'm so glad I found it! Thank you for the darling Christmas card. What a beautiful family y'all have! I look forward to keeping up with your family!

  3. That is what husbands are for! You're still awesome to me and everyone esle!

  4. Ben's given up on wrapping and just bags everything now. Love the story, though!

  5. Luckily I think B has already forgot this happened.


So glad you've come to visit!
I'd love to hear {read};) your thoughts!
