So what do you do when your spouse asks, “How was your day?” and the truth is “craptacular”? I find it best to skip the value-laden questions and just ask, “So what happened to you today?”
Years ago, my husband and I read an article that encouraged couples to share “the goods” at the end of the day instead of “the news”. Since then we've tried to talk about what positive things have happened in the day, “the goods”, for at least 15 minutes before launching into a laundry list of woes.
