Thankful

The other day I was driving the boys home from school and listening to music. A song shuffled on that brought up a million memories. It was a hard not to smile and get extremely nostalgic. Doesn’t everybody have those songs that pluck the strings of memory so hard that it makes your whole body vibrate? My song was a little ditty released back in late November of 1987. I remember it really well

Face Peel

Body Image. As a therapist, I have worked with many clients who have poor or warped body images. I have worked with people who saw themselves too fat, too skinny, too ugly, too pretty, too unsymmetrical, too manly, too feminine. You name it, I have seen it. As a woman, I have had issues with my own body image. I have been overweight all of my life and struggled with losing weight. My body image has dictated how confident I felt around men, around colleagues and ultimately around clients.

A new week brings new ideas. This week is completely different because we are revisiting some topics that we have covered. We have new views, angles, opinions and even data to share on some things.

We aren’t recanting, we are expanding our views on fatherhood this week and maybe even looking at some things we missed last time. For instance, when did Daddy become a sexy word?

Which One Is Hitler?

Welcome to another week of CoupleDumb. If you are anything like us and you probably are since we aren’t aliens or complete weirdoes, you are probably overwhelmed right now. We have a gazillion things going on right now and frankly, are finding it really hard to not be experiencing a little Work ADD. You know the symptoms. Can’t concentrate. A little irritable. Going off on a tangent. Well that is us and so this week, we embrace our Work ADD and are doing a Free For All week. Yes, it is a theme less week that we are labeling anyway. Back off, this is how we file the stuff. Today, Lee gets to go off on one of her tangential rants.

Spot The Crazy

It’s Monday and we have a jammed pack week here at CoupleDumb. We have so many irons in the fire right now that we may have to find a means of cloning ourselves so that one set works while the other has sex and sleeps. We promised you last week on Relationship Rehab that we would give you the keys to a drama free life. Step one of this is spotting the craziness in your life. Sometimes it is an individual and sometimes it’s circumstances.

Aren’t brides beautiful?

So you want to get married….WOOHOO! It is Monday and CoupleDumb will be popping the question. However, before we pop the champagne and celebrate the impending nuptials, there are a few things to consider. This is the pre-wedding crash course and we will be sure to mix in some good ideas for weddings as well. But before we jump on the glass and yell Mazel Tov, we need to address the most basic of questions. Why the hell do you want to get married?
