Fake it until you make it holiday campaign guidelines

~Do away with anything annoying. If the lights don't work, don't try to figure out which bulb needs replaced. Throw them out and buy new.

~Eat as much as you want...but have antacid available.

~Drink as much as you want...but don't drive.

~Send Christmas cards to people you like first...then sending the ones to people you don't like so much will be less painful.

~If you must shop, take a list so that you can get in, get what you need, and get out, before the holiday music makes you grind your teeth down to nothing.

~Bake what YOU like...let everyone else worry about themselves.

~Do NOT sort through any belongings having to do with pregnancy or babies until after the new year...no matter how much you wish them out of your house.

~Hang up lots of Christmas decorations (any that survive guideline #1, that is).

~Smile at everyone. No matter what. If nothing else, they will wonder what it is you're plotting.

~Do NOT ask your husband to help you decorate. Either tell him to do it, or do it yourself. It will save you both the aggravation.

(More to come, I'm sure)

Well you could have posted tip number 1 last week. And I never found the bulb either.

And I saw a t-shirt a couple of weeks back that said SMILE!!! it confuses people.

Sounds like you have things utterly sorted at your house!

I should probably print out multiple copies of this and tack them up anywhere I'm bound to be...
