Meet Mark

The Trees Aren’t Stressin’

By Sara

Of course, they are trees.


Sara here, with a few extra holiday tips:

– Consider having your holiday meal delivered from a nice restaurant. No one will know. Really. And you can always bribe that little nephew who figures it out. (There’s always one, isn’t there?)

– Hire a maid service from one of those quick-n-cheap housekeeping companies. Relatives can pitch a few dollars in if they want, but a one-time basic cleaning after the big day is surprisingly inexpensive. And it might be better than a massage.

– Enlist the children to complete forced labor. It builds character. As soon as they go outside to hurl snowballs and/or smaller cousins at each other, they’ll forget all about having to take out the trash.

– Take the phone off the hook after 8 p.m.
