Murphy's Law - The Christmas Chaos Has Already Begun
Murphy's Law says, "If anything can go wrong, it will." Notice the left-hand side of the lights.
“I try to take one day at a time - but sometimes several days attack me at once.” Jennifer Unlimited-
Wouldn’t you know it, my husband and I spent all day getting out the decorations, going through the lights, putting them up. We checked every strand before we started to string them, but . . . as you can see, a section is out. I keep telling myself – people aren’t perfect. Patience…patience…patience… I had a lot of practice at this art of patience, when the kids were little - but that was a long time ago.
“I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage and a career.” Gloria Steinem-
Marriage and a career – that’s nothing, try adding kids into the equation – especially at the holidays.
We, Moms, want to pretend we’re perfect - at least for our kids - but Christmas is no time to pretend. . . at least when it comes to perfection. ‘Cause, come on, you might as well admit it right now, parents aren’t perfect. Heck, like I said, people aren’t perfect.
(So, tomorrow, we’ll redo the lights.)
And, here's my one helpful holiday site for you. I'm hoping this might help make your holidays a little happier and maybe even run a little smoother: if you're looking for a holiday recipe, just click here. Maybe, with the help of an EZ recipe, you'll be able to pretend you're perfect.
