Handling Your In-Laws Over The Holidays

There’s no denying that the holiday season, while appealing in many ways, can also be a major cause of stress.  The prospect of seeing loved ones you've long been separated from, eating amazing food, giving and receiving gifts, and enjoying all of the traditions of the season is something most of us look forward to all year.  What we don’t relish is the pressure to buy, the tense crowds of eager shoppers, and the abundant preparation that goes into every detail, from travel arrangements to cooking for a crowd to the presentation of gifts.  And for many of us, there is a sinking feeling associated with the time we must spend with our crazy in-laws.


Why you dread spending the holidays dealing with your in-laws

Don’t think you’re alone in this sentiment.  It should come as no surprise that you’d rather spend family holidays with your own family, where you feel comfortable and relaxed.  It’s difficult to interlope into someone else’s traditions.  You’re outnumbered and expectations are high; basically it’s a recipe for disaster and yet, you’re being called upon to perform.  And it can be even worse if you don’t get along with your in-laws particularly well.  But there are definitely ways to dispel some of the tension, get them to behave, and make interactions with your in-laws smoother.

Love Quotes From Celebrities

Love quotes aren't what they used to be. They used to be cute and soft, and sprinkled with silver from the clouds. Nowadays love quotes can be cold, hard facts (and frankly, sometimes gibberish), uttered in desperation from someone who hasn't yet found THE ONE.

Below are some love quotes from celebrities and other famous people. You may want to copy and use them on your loved ones, but somehow I get the feeling you wouldn't be using many of them. Here goes!
Disclaimer: many of these love quotes are paraphrased and/or shortened. None of them have been changed. Also, the celebrities have been put in the group which defines what they're most famous for doing.
