One way I have found is to glean from flylady. You will find great crockpot recipes and common sense tips on keeping house and obtaining that peaceful Christmas season.
I hope you find this link helpful for flying through the Christmas season! I just really get a kick out of flylady!
As usual I have a movie suggestion for you...Our family is in the middle of watching it and I think you will really enjoy it... The name of the movie is, Our Vines Have Tender Grapes. (1945)
I like what a reviewer said about it: This is a wonderful movie starring Edward G Robinson and a very young Margaret O'Brien in "Our Vines Have Tender Grapes". What a splendid movie. They don't make films like this anymore and that's a shame. Edward G Robinson was the greatest actor of all time.
This clip really doesn't do the movie justice although it is precious indeed, the majority of the movie takes place in a lovely rural area... So far the movie and message is one of poignancy, joy and even a tear shed....even by my husband as we are viewing the movie this week....
