Greetings Work and Family Members,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to you all. My latest article is about taking a time out to de-stress your mind and your body.

*Take Time to Revitalize Yourself*
After the stressful and stress-filled holiday season, or any time you feel that you have been stretched to the limit, take some time to revitalize and rejuvenate yourself.

In case you missed these articles:

Any parent or grandparent will tell you the best gift they have received is one that is handmade. Here are some easy projects for your children.

*Toy Safety for Children*
Children aged 3 and under have a habit of putting any and everything in their little mouths (as sometime noses), so toys such as stuffed bears with button eyes and noses, balloons and toys with small parts should be kept away from them. Those little fingers are adept and persistent at picking and prying at objects. If you feel like the toy is o.k. "as long as you watch the child", then it is not safe.

Shopping for toys can be fun and exciting. It can also be exhausting and extremely frustrating, however if you are not careful it can be harmful too. Here are a few things to take into consideration.

Visit for more content. In addition, to participate in online discussions, the Work & Family site has a community forum. Our ongoing question is “What is one of your favorite things to do in winter.”

*A Lighter Moment*

It’s all in how you see it.

A man was driving home on the freeway, and his car phone rings.

Answering, he hears his wife’s frantic voice warning him to be careful, “Charlie, please be careful. I just heard on the news that there’s a car going the wrong way on Highway 507.

Charlie looks out of his car window and says, “Darn!.” “It’s not just one car. It’s hundreds of them!”


As always, feel free to send this and other Work & Family articles to family and friends.

Be careful, be safe,

Vannie Ryanes, Work & Family Editor

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. —Erma Bombeck
