What was that? And how do we avoid it next year?
So, Christmas is gone for another year. How was it for you and your bride? Were you too busy? Are you exhausted? Will you being paying off the bills till June – of 2012? Did extended family drive you crazy? Were you so caught up in the doing and going that you lost the reason?
Take some time to debrief with your bride. Talk about what was good and what was bad. Share what you don’t want to repeat, what you want to do again, and what you want to do again with modifications. Then write down what you decide and put it where you will find it next year (stuck to the top of the Christmas boxes, or as a calendar event on your phone maybe) because eleven months from now you won’t remember as well as you think you will.
