Three Steps to a Simpler Saner Christmas

3 steps to a saner and simpler Christmas

Today’s the day to give myself a simpler saner Christmas! It’s Sharpie Day!

This is my fifteenth Sharpie Day, so you would think I’d have it all figured out by now.  I thought I did.  I really thought there was nothing about Sharpie Day that would surprise me.

But this year, things are a little different.

What is Sharpie Day?  (You mean you haven’t heard of this awesome day? It should be a National Holiday and you’ve never heard of it?)

Happy Half-Year Day

happy half year day

Today should be celebrated as “Half-Year Day.”

I’m officially adding it to our family calendar and traditions.

It’s July 1st.  That makes it as close to half-way through the year as I care to calculate.   So today is the perfect time to re-group, re-think, and re-prioritize.
