If you need to distract yourself from any of life's difficult situations, may I suggest this trick which is currently working very well for me.
Have your family contract the stomach flu, watch them go down one by one like dominos, and eye your few remaining children as if they were ticking time bombs. Watch your husband go down along with them.
I am finding this an extremely effective distraction on this day when I most desperately need one. So, gifts sometimes do come in very strange packages.
