Don't have to do these things--relieved?
Do you like that Suze Orman person—who stridently yells DENIED at people when they want to spend a buck? I am not a fan. But I do think we need someone to say yes or no on things. Just not her, with her orange canvas outfits.
I saw a story in Working Mother (Nov 2011) about things you can take off your To Do List. What a great idea to cut stress!
The magazine says you can remove:
Learning to knit
Hosting a dinner party
These come from The Happiest Mom by Meagan Francis.
Now, I have some…
Learning to make scratch piecrust
Cooking all meals on Sunday and freezing
Dog obedience school
And that’s just for starters! Got some more, readers? Let’s go easy on ourselves.
By the way, Working Mother is such a good mag I still get it and my kid is almost 30. I am dropping it, though, because they went to a new design that yellow-highlights things for me in the stories.
The best advice EVER in Working Mother--if your kid won't get dressed in the morning, let him sleep in his clothes.
