Rethink your holidays.
I realize I’ve said this a few times already, but it bears repeating. Thanksgiving is about a month away. Holiday expectations can be stressful, especially with extended family thrown into the deal. How do you want to express your thankfulness?
Be creative. Talk to your husband and family about what is important to them and plan a holiday that is rich in meaning instead of full or what you are “supposed to do.”
This year my husband, son and I are dining out at a nice buffet, just the three of us. We may join with friends during the season (with small fun hostess gifts in tow), but we’re going for the simple and easy family time route. Please feel free to share your Thanksgiving ideas as a comment to this tip.
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. Erma Bombeck
