Holidays making you nuts? You can survive. You will survive. Here are some things that might make it easier.
Watch a movie! Television being full of sappy specials these days, I’ve been using my Netflix movie subscription to the max. Last night I watched “The Last Ride,” which is a fictionalized story about country music star Hank Williams. So good. Not a baby or pregnant woman to be seen. Earlier this week, I watched “Great Gatsby” with Leonardo DiCaprio. Wonderful and also childfree. You could rent this version and the older one with Robert Redford and spend almost five hours in no-baby bliss. Another excellent movie is “Now is Good,” which is about a young woman who is trying to pack everything into her life before she dies of a fatal illness. No babies, and it’s very upbeat despite the subject matter.
If you’re into monsters, suspense, fantasy or romance, I’m sure there’s a movie out there for you. Go to the theater or stay home and watch it on your DVD player or Internet-connected device and forget all about your troubles.
Can you suggest some other great distractions?
