Teaching Emotions To Children

We get a lot of books to review. As most of our readers know, one half of CoupleDumb is a psychotherapist with almost 25 years of experience in marriage and family therapy and addiction counseling. What you may not know is that Lee is working on her doctorate in Psychology. When we received this book for review it seemed like it was perfect timing because Lee was just finishing up a literature review on emotional granularity. What is that you ask and why is it important and why would you talk about that on CoupleDumb? We are happy you asked!

Delta Corrente Review

I have a small bathroom. A really, really small bathroom. Not only is it tiny but it is also in a house that has not been updated in the past 40 years. Things that are uncommon in today’s houses, like carpet in the bathroom, we have in our house. So when Delta sent me a new toilet to install and review, I was a little concerned.

Fundraising with T-Shirts

I found out early in life that my Mom and I shared a problem. We were both insomniacs. We spent the nights watching black and white movies. This started my love affair with black and white films and the music in them. The orchestration, lyrics and the smooth voices that sung these beautiful songs stood in sharp contrast to the music of the day.

Dreaming The Impossible Dream Of Taking A Pill

I have not taken a vitamin in five months. I try to stay healthy and I do believe that supplements are part of this. Lee laughs at me and my daughter cannot be in the same room as me if I am trying to take a pill. The pills simply do not go down and I end up spitting out some bad tasting slime. So I have given up taking normal pills. So this is my quest. I am the Man Of La Mancha, tilting at the windmill of my own gag reflex. This is my quest.. to swallow that pill… no matter how hopeless…
