with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
Things have been stressful in our house, between a slower work schedule (Mine) and a double work schedule (His, because of mine), and so many side things that niggle and bother and burn. We learned long ago that going to be angry is a much better solution than staying up until all hours of the night lobbying the same arguments back and forth with no progression.
We’ve had more nights of going to bed unsettled than we’re used to, but we’re managing in the way we’ve been accustomed. In the morning, we hug and say sorry and move forward. (If our issues were deeper than frustration over looking at ONE BILLION church logos that he’s working on when I’d rather be ANYWHERE ELSE, we’d have to hash it out further.)
As it is, we say goodnight, we say good morning, and we hug it out.
How do you deal with the morning after a pre-bedtime disagreement?
