Should Be vs. Actual

by Meghann on December 21, 2010

What I should be doing:

  • Packing
  • Cleaning
  • Wrapping Presents

What I’m actually doing:

  • Reading blogs
  • Watching Lifetime Christmas Movies
  • Making Peppermint Bark

I’ve been putting off wrapping my presents for weeks now. I thought I was being so productive by getting my shopping done early and then I forgot about the little act of wrapping them all. Opps.
