  • Once every 10 to 12 weeks, something wonderful happens.

    I get to hide in a hair salon for an hour and 15 minutes.

    No one there needs to be fed or helped onto the potty. No one treats me like a waitress, makes a mess or hits their brother. There’s no pressure to mop floors, fold clothes, pack lunches or give baths. And there’s no incessant “Mommy, mommy, mommy.”

  • My husband’s sister usually takes her Christmas tree down Dec. 26.

    When Christmas is over, it’s over, she says. Besides, the tree takes up space in her living room.

    Others I know devote New Year’s Day to packing up the decorations, a family project.

    Still others leave them up until Jan. 6, Three Kings Day, the 12th of the 12 days of Christmas.

    Me, I’m a Christmas extender.

    I’m not in a hurry to pack away the nutcrackers, the lights and the nativity scene.
