~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)
