Wrap and Raffia

I thought I was getting ahead of the game….got my presents wrapped, raffia and tags put on, thinking now I could start baking and cards.  This was my year of “being organized!!”

I ran out to pick up some last minute ingredients and stocking stuffers, all the while thinking how ahead of the game I was.  I was driving in the car, singing along with Michael Buble, so proud of my organizational skills!  I got home, unloaded all my bags into the garage, opened the door to the house and this is what I found! I should have known something was up because there was no Emmet waiting to escape out the garage door!

Imagine my surprise!  Max and Emmet had un-wrapped all my packages!  The wrapping paper was all over the floor!   I forgot to put them in the closet and shut the door.  But I thought that if I was only gone for an hour or so, they wouldn’t notice them sitting on the table.  I stood there with my mouth open; should I laugh or cry?!  I looked at Max; he wouldn’t look at me.  At least he knew he had done something wrong.  I shook my head at him and let him know I wasn’t real happy about this one!   Max could not get them off the table, but Emmet could push them or pull them off by the raffia; speaking of Emmet and raffia…where were they?

I looked in my bedroom….nothing!  I looked in my office….nothing!  I looked in Emmet’s room and lo and behold there was Emmet with all the raffia in his kitty tunnel.  What a mess.  He sat there so proud!  He had taken ALL the raffia and put it in his tunnel.  I shook my head at him; he meowed and curled around my leg.  He had no shame.  This was an Emmet Victory!!

I couldn’t get mad because I was so impressed with their inventiveness!  Max loves to chew paper and Emmet loves playing with raffia.  I was amazed how it was divided up!!  And, it only took them an hour and a half!  I guess I can say that I have two very smart critters and I am proud of them!  (Yes, I am a soft touch and look for the positive in all the crimes they commit!!)  I am sure there is a name for that;  sappy, perhaps??!!

Now, time for me to clean up, rewrap and put all the wrapped packages in the closet!   I will smile all the while I am doing that!!
