The holiday season can be wonderful. It can also be crazy, exhausting, and maddening.
Unless this is your first holiday season with your husband, you have some idea what’s about to happen. If you want something different than what has befallen you in the past, this would be a good time to speak up.
This is also the time to give fair warning of what life it going to be like for the next six weeks. Some of this is beyond anyone’s control, and you’re just telling hubby and the kids how it’s going to be. Other things are dependent on what your family chooses to do this season. In this case, you are giving a list of if/then warnings.
Give it some hard thought and then share. Ask your husband to do the same. Then both of you can make informed choices.
