After Christmas Planning

December 29, 2011

in the generous life

Step One: get a 2012 calendar (or you could use a Google calendar that you both can access)

Step Two: make a date with your husband

Step Three: spend time marking in holidays and any plans that you have for the new year on your calendar.

Step Four: add a monthly date to your calendar where you discuss upcoming events and commitments.  The more you communicate and know about where and when folks have plans, the fewer mishaps, miscommunications and general messes you’ll make.  Less friction, more peace.

Time is the coin of your life.  It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent.  Carl Sandburg

Consider getting your household paperwork in very good order ~ Being Generous to the End  Knowing where all the paper bits are is a great safety net.


Be generous! Lori <><

Thank you, Lori, for this idea! We already had a date scheduled for today, so we made part of our date shopping for a calendar, and then talked over our year over lunch. I enjoyed it so much, and it gave us the opportunity to plan some special things I don’t think we would otherwise have planned (bike trip for our anniversary, some fun ways to celebrate our birthdays & days off, etc.). Thank you so much!
