Don’t Need a Reason for the Season

CoupleDumb is so proud to have a guest blogger today. All the way from Karachi, Pakistan, we have Anne Dias from www.caffeinatedbliss.com . Anne is an amazing writer, wife of almost 6 years and mother of twin 5 year olds. We asked Anne to write about her Christmas experience because she shares our craziness about the season and yet here is a woman from Pakistan where the Muslim faith is the predominant religion. Kind of makes you wonder about all of your judgments and thoughts regarding the Middle East. Maybe there is a couple just like us writing a relationship blog wondering if they’ll ever get any sleep and uninterrupted sex.

Bite my yulelog

Tuesday and we are swiftly approaching the last day of school before Christmas break. Winter Vacation is a bittersweet time where we experience that wonderful parenting bi-polarism where we love having our kids home one minute and count the seconds when they can go back to school. However, we need to always remember that our kids sense our feelings and feed off our anxiety thus exacerbating the situation. What else do they notice about this wonderful season?

We Believe in Santa Claus

It is Monday of the last full week of posts of the year for us. We asked our bosses and they were gracious enough to let us only post a couple of times a week until next year. This gives us more time to wrap gifts and cater to their every whim. This is also the time of year where we bust out the good cooking. Paul will reconnect with his Hungarian roots and whip up some retes and Lee will come up with some great food surprise for the entire family for Christmas Day. We have faith that all our effort is taken into account.

Lee’s a bitch. Merry Christmas.

It’s the second Friday of December and we can officially start the Christmas partying. Businesses, clubs and friends are all putting on their festive wear and celebrating not only the wonder of the season but the end of the year as well. Technically, this could be your last day of real work since next week your mind and heart will already be on holiday. CoupleDumb is like everyone else except our Christmas party is just the two of us and fraternizing next to the copy machine is business as usual.

Coffee with a sprinkle of niceness.

It’s Thursday and this is where we dedicate about 500+ words to relationships. Naughty and Nice are just states of being in relation to being in relationship. We know we are being heady but try to follow us here. You can’t really be naughty or nice in a vacuum can you? But you can be naughty with a vacuum and we’re sure your parents would love it if you did vacuum. What the hell are we talking about?

Santa is in ICU because you didn’t behave.

OMG! It is December 8th. Now the Scrooges must stop humbugging about Christmas décor and bitching about the over commercialism of this holiday. It is time for all of you to pretend you love the season and are always in the spirit. Honestly, how many of you listen to Christmas music in the summer? We do but then again we are fanatics who should probably stick to our medication schedules. Just to show all of you how warm and tingly we are during this time of year, we are giving away a Dysaffirmation basket! You are probably wondering, ‘What the hell is in a Dysaffirmation basket?’ Glad you asked. We will include a Dysaffirmation Book, a Dysaffirmation coffee mug, a Dysaffirmation t-shirt and a magnet! We’ve gone completely insane! Check in tomorrow for details on how 3 lucky winners can win. Why are we doing this? We’re just showing our kids that it’s nice to give while lying to them about everything else.

You Better Not Pout…

The Monday after a holiday weekend is like recovering from a bender. We have actually focused our attention on getting our home and family ready for Christmas! The inside of our home looks like Vegas meets Santa’s workshop while the front of the house is always a work in progress until we tear it all down the day after Christmas. We adore Christmas and use it to its full advantage. What does that mean? Well, we believe that the song ‘Santa Claus is coming to town’ was a gift to parents to keep their kids in line for at least a month. We are also firm believers that it is never too late to get off the naughty list and be nice.

Lee’s (not a) Christmas list

As we round off our ‘it’s the thought that counts’ week, we thought we would end it by letting the more thoughtful one of us take over the helm. Yesterday proved that Paul has little restraint when it comes to gifts. So, today, we will show you the dichotomous spouse who is more concerned with the thoughtfulness of a gift. The spouse who is satisfied with a drawing from her son where the stick figure sports firey orange hair and the house leans at a Pisa angle. This is the half of CoupleDumb that would prefer to donate her gifts to the poor and homeless than keep anything for her self since she is blessed with so much. Of course we are talking about Lee and this is the list she has compiled of things she never wants to receive.
