so long, worry!
with the holidays full speed ahead, you have enough on your plate without sweating the small stuff. what not to stress about this month:
* showering daily. (ha.ha. this still never happens)
~seriously. the air is drier in the winter, which means you need
your skin's natural lubricants.
*spending more time with your kids.
~it's good for your children to see their mom as someone who
takes care of herself, whether that's heading to spin class or reading
a book. now you can say "do as i do" and not feel guilty about that!
* cooking from scratch.
~you know why your great-grandmother made everything by hand?
because she had to! duncan hines cake mix didn't hit the market
until 1940s. considering her particular streak, she'd applaud your use
of premade piecrust, grocery delivery, and boxed soup. (so, i don't
agree here, but it's still funny) ;)
*a spotless house.
~yes, there is such a thing as being too clean. a little bacteria doesn't
necessarily hurt, especially for kids, whose immune systems need
some exposure to germs in order to build up resistance. if you wipe
down floors, sinks, and toilets-and change sheets every week or two-
you're golden. (ha.ha.ha.)
