Make Plans Before Autumn Runs You Down
Find a quiet moment over the next week to begin the talks with hubby about your fall schedule and the coming holidays (if you’ve already made a start, pick up the conversation and refine it a bit).
Summer is ending, the kids will be off to school soon (or you have homeschooling to navigate), vacations are over, and the holidays are barreling down on us.
There are a lot of options to consider and many decisions to make.
If you talk about them up front and make your decisions now, you are less likely to be run over by circumstances and you can say “yes” or “no” intelligently (which makes for a saner daily schedule and holiday times).
Grab a notebook (paper or electronic) and your sweetie and start hashing out your thoughts and plans. Be realistic about your time and energy. Make room for those things that matter the most to you, your hubby, and your family. Let the rest go and give yourself some margin.
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. Carl Sandburg
