How old are your daughters? Old enough to put themselves to bed, I presume. I think one of my boys would read through the night if I didn't tell him to turn his light off.
How about this tip for alleviating holiday stress?
leave town. heh.
I'm headed out of town - alone - to see my family in Chicago where my grandmother (98) is in the hospital. It was too last minute to take everyone - plus I'm going to try and help out my parents and siblings with caring for my grandma so it will be easier to be there without them.
No preparing for Thanksgiving stress for me !
