Finding time for everything in daily life can be a challenge. The holidays add an extra burden to the growing list of things to do. This year marks the shortest amount of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Think you can do it all? You can’t. There’s no time to dink around people! You’re basically screwed unless you follow my tips:
No time to buy a host or hostess gift?
Recycle! Fill all those holiday mugs you’ve received over the years with your leftover Halloween candy. Everyone loves Snickers bars.
Don’t judge me. The candy canes are from last year. I ate all the Snickers bars.
No time to write for your blog?
Post office party photos. Make up funny captions like, “Bob always peeks into the secret Santa gifts and slips his name on the best one.” Then cross-post it on Facebook. Watch your Klout score soar! Don’t forget to tag your boss, Bob.
No time for shopping?
Buy presents and groceries online and have them delivered. Your family will appreciate having something to eat even if you go heavy on frozen French fries. Just make sure to order ketchup.
No time to bake cookies with the kids?
Add frozen waffles to your online shopping list. Your kids can use cutouts to make different shapes. Sift some powdered sugar on top and call them, “Special Snowflake Cookies.”
No time for exercise?
Run in place while wrapping presents. Just be careful with the scissors. You don’t have time to go to the emergency room.
No time to decorate inside your home?
Light candles. No one will notice as your guests bump around your house.
No time to take a family photo for your holiday card?
Go green! Recycle last year’s card. No one will notice.
I could pick one of these…
No time to decorate a tree?
Order tinsel online and throw it over the boughs. You could make Tinsel Tossing a new family tradition!
No time to buy a tree?
Cut down that seedling that grew over the summer. That’s what we’re doing!
No time to put up outdoor Christmas lights?
Replace your outdoor entry lights with red bulbs and call it a day.
I’m addicted to decorating, shopping, cooking, baking, blogging and writing. I’ll sleep in January. Wait! I forgot about making my Christmas card. Where’s that tinsel?
