If you look at my calendar, you will see there are consistent days of the week marked with an “X”. From week to week, those “X”’s are there.
Those “X”’s are a reminder to me that those are my days to be home, and not to schedule something on those days. If someone asks me to do something on those days, then the answer is that I cannot because I have plans. My plans to be home are every bit as valuable as external plans, and in terms of nourishing a rich family life and connectedness, probably even more valuable.
Where are the “X”’s on your calendar as you are planning for fall?
