Give me 20 minutes please!

A slice of advice:
I call this the 20 minute rule.   When your spouse gets home (give a kind greeting) then give him 20 minutes to unwind.  It takes time to get the mind from work to home.   It is something I have taught my children as well.  Whenever someone has been away from home for hours greet them and then give them 20 minutes to unwind.  

There was a very short period of time when the roles reversed and my spouse was home before I got home, rather than get agitated, I made a ritual of coming home and taking a 20 minute shower.  This gave me pause and time to regroup my thoughts. I was refreshed, I got a 20 minute break and all was well!
