1: It's a lot harder to find a room of one's own on the days without child care
2: Hosting a crazy dinner party on New Year's eve because you don't have baby sitter is totally fun. Waking up at 6 a.m. the next day because you don't have a baby sitter is brutal.
2B: Hangovers are a whole lot worse at 34 than 30
3: Recessionista entertainment: There's no need to pay for cable if you don't have time to watch anything except the Daily Show on Hulu, even during your staycation.
4: Recessionista child care: nanny shares (boy #3 joins us on Tuesday for our first 'group day')
1: Use date night for dates
2: Get a physical
3: Manage my personal calendar as adroitly as my professional calendar. (this one's for you, hubby.) (And for you, Dad, who I forgot to call on your birthday - see 2B above.)
4: Spend time with each boy one-on-one
Happy New Year
