It's that goddamn time of year again! You know, the time of year when you see social media posts from random people depicting how well put together their holiday season is compared to yours!
I know you think this is going to be one of those run-of-the-mill 'shitty mom and wife and PROUD of it' blog posts, but you are dead wrong like usual. I'm better than you.
No for real it's gonna be kind of like that, I'm making more of an effort to fit in lately.
Quite regularly I get asked, "Jenn, your house smells like dog piss, your three year old gives people the finger, and yet you STILL never manage to make it to yoga. How do you sleep at night?"
The answer? Underneath your boyfriend. Fuck off.
Carrying on.. for the last decade I have been testing out different ways to take the holiday season stress down, and amp the fun up. I have some pictures I took of my mid-December holiday prep day to show all of you with step by step instructions. Just have to go wipe the wine off my tits real quick here and upload them.
STEP 1: Order every gift online. Also, Amazon.ca conveniently sends it's own wrapping paper for you FREE OF CHARGE on every order. Make use of it! Frugal AND fun.
STEP 2: Unpack and set up the real reason you made an Amazon order. Free Super Saver Shipping anyone??
STEP 3: Prepare a nutritious and delicious meal ahead of time before your kids and husband come home.
STEP 4: Continue catching up on your household duties. You never know when your husband will suprise you with an earlier than usual text from the bar asking you to "PICK ME UPP ND GET SUM TACQUITOES FRM 7 11 PLS".
I hope you all can breathe a little easier by incorporating at least one of these tricks. Happy Holidays!
