April 9, 2012 8 Comments Reply Ann Musico May 27, 2012 at 2:12 pm I’m definitely not one of those “let’s just let the day unfold” people! I plan each of my days – even a day off – I agree – taking an active approach to the day works best for me! Hope you had a wonderful Sunday! Reply Michael Good May 27, 2012 at 8:58 pm Sounds like a great approach, Ann. We did have a wonderful Sunday! We visited a new church this morning which we enjoyed and then had a pretty relaxing day spending time together here at home. Hope yours was wonderful as well! Reply Kent Julian May 27, 2012 at 9:24 pm Active Communication? Getting up early? Planning to get the most out of each day? Sounds like “live it forward” strategies. Just saying… 🙂 Reply Michael Good May 27, 2012 at 9:26 pm We learn from the best, Kent! We’re living it forward with encouragement from great folks like you! Reply Michael Wright May 28, 2012 at 9:49 am I’m a planner, Michael. I will even plan out my errands so I have the fewest left turns possible, due to traffic! I totally have plenty of experience when my wife and I have totally different expectations for the day. Communication is key. We find planning the night before (as much as possible) helps so that when the morning comes, there is no guessing as to what will happen. Given we are opposites in many ways – it leads to alot of compromise, however we still have the plan. Reply Claudia Good May 29, 2012 at 10:55 pm Michael, Ah yes, the plan… That has saved many a day for us as well! 🙂 Wow… fewest left turns as possible huh!? That is intense! Shall we say you have a little bit of “C” wiring in you?? hee-he 😉 Reply crystalmgood November 2, 2012 at 2:04 pm Hey I just saw this post and I must say, it is dead on! Andrew and I have been learning through this right now. We both can have our expectiations on things and if not communicated, we end up working towards opposite goals and inwardly getting frustrated when the other one seems to keep doing the opposite! So a little up front communication has gotten us a long way! I think we are still learning to plan our time out – still learning to have an “active approach” as you call it. We often have to figure out the balance between enjoying relaxing time together and working at projects and getting alot done. Oh marriage, it is a beautiful thing! 🙂 Reply Claudia Good November 5, 2012 at 10:34 pm Ah yes Crystal, Have been there many times! 🙂 Yes, it is a beautiful dance isn’t it? A little bend here, move there, this way, that way… all together 😉 Blessings as you learn to dance together!
