There is no such thing as……Holiday Sanity Savers, but I will give it a try.
Get up an hour earlier or stay up an hour later every day… that will add one work day to your week.
Make lists for EVERYTHING. You may not be able to get it all done but at least you will be able to sleep. “They” say if you write things done it frees your brain from trying to remember it for you. (Your brain usually does this about 3:00 a.m.)
Don’t worry about finding all the presents you have hidden. Your kids will love the surprises when you come across the gifts in February.
Do not allow Santa to bring any gifts that say, “Some Assembly Required.”
Buy your own gift, wrap it very poorly, put a gift tag from your husband. Open it, act very surprised and gush greatly. I am sure “he” thinks one of the kids did that for him. Works every time!
Don’t over scheldule! I finally learned not to set myself up for unrealistic expectations. The best things happen when unexpected.
