Hello Robin,

 

Experiencing a divorce within a family can be stressful and painful. Winter holidays can certainly heighten these feelings. But, with a little bit of compassion, an open mind and some deep breaths, everyone can celebrate together.

 

Below please find some ideas intended to help families cope and maintain harmony and happiness during this time.

 

Warm Regards,

Robin Fleischer Esq.

Fleischer Law Solutions, PLLC

 

 

Harmonious Holidays

 

https://imgssl.constantcontact.com/letters/images/1101116784221/S.gif

 

1. Remember it is all about your children, not you or your former spouse. Try to keep the bad feelings at bay. Model for your children the spirit of the season by giving yourself permission to stop being angry.

 

2.  Follow your parenting plan. If you are still negotiating your divorce, talk with your spouse in advance on how you both will handle the holidays. For example, it is most common for parents to alternate the holidays each year. If you have good communication with your ex-spouse, certain holidays can be shared. One parent may spend the first half of the day with the children and the other parent finishes the day. Children of Interfaith marriages often spend specific religious holiday with the appropriate parent.

 

3. If your relationship allows it, consider continuing spending the holidays together. This will reinforce with your children that you are still a family, although living apart.

 

4. Create new traditions with your children instead of mourning the past. Perhaps this is the year you take your children on a trip during the Thanksgiving vacation, or book a reservation in a restaurant for the meal.  

 

5. Be creative and flexible. For example, on Halloween, one parent can take the children trick-or-treating, while the other parent accompanies them to a town or school celebration.

Meet Gary Zimmerman of Budget Blinds Amherst & Westford

gary

In 2015 Gary Zimmerman made a decision that would forever change his life, with the founding of Budget Blinds of Amherst & Westford. Gary had retired from a career in the Air Force spanning over two decades, during which time he had met his lovely wife. Their family continued to grow over the years, ultimately reaching eight children. After his Air Force career, Gary spent some time working in business development for private companies but he had never lost a passion from his youth to own a business. He realized that the time was right to enter this next phase, and make his dreams a reality. After some soul searching, Gary found Budget Blinds. The company’s values and mission were so closely aligned with his own, that Gary immediately knew that this was the perfect fit for him. Since that time, Gary has worked hard to grow his business. His greatest satisfaction comes from watching a customer’s reaction when they see the final product, which often exceeds their expectations.

Today, Budget Blinds of Amherst & Westford employs an installer and a design specialist with a keen eye for color. Customers can ask questions or seek guidance in the products and colors every step of the way. The team is dedicated to your satisfaction and finding the right product.

Despite the support of his staff, Gary continues to take a hands-on approach to his business, visiting customers for their in-home consultations and helping out with installations that require his expertise. This team effort and their dedication to the customer’s satisfaction is what sets Budget Blinds of Amherst & Westford apart in both the process and the finished product.

Call Gary for a free in home or office consultation today! Or visit Gary's new Showroom showroom located at 520 Amherst St Nashua NH.
