Get Your Celebration On

Today is our niece Gabriella’s 8th birthday! 8 years ago, her Mommy went to the OB/GYN and said ‘I think this bun is baked!’ They sent her to the hospital and after 3 grueling pushes Gabby joined the world and our family. The celebration began with the traditional pizza and chocolate chip cookies. Sure, other people drink champagne but Gabby’s family is ‘special’. Sure, we drank later but that was just celebrating that it was a Monday!

Love is an overstuffed sofa.

We just had a weekend where we had nothing to do. Sure we had to do laundry, clean up and handle some writing and website duties but we had nothing to do outside of our home. We had nothing to yank us out of bed before we would naturally get up. Do you understand how incredibly awesome that is? Do you get that weekends like that don’t happen very often in CoupleDumb land? It made for a relaxing weekend spent in loungewear ranging from Lee’s flowing dress to Paul’s shorts that hardly need to be removed to go to the bathroom. Ah, comfy!

Handle Your Love

A single drop of water can start a flood and a snowflake can cause an avalanche. Everything is significant and nothing is expendable. These are certain mindsets that can help people in life. Unfortunately, most people can’t see beyond their front porches or even beyond their own noses. This is the realm of the ego and in the kingdom of love the ego is the court jester.

Committed or should be.

One of the things we have loved to do on this blog is to discuss the relationship craziness of celebrities. We have done this in the form of WTFs and Celebrity Smackdowns and have mentioned countless celebrities. As we discuss what love is, one of the concepts that seem to elude celebrity is that of commitment. Please do not assume we mean that celebs are the only ones that don’t understand that concept. Normal people lack commitment too!

What’s love?

We are not negative people. On the contrary, we are very positive, happy and uplifting people in a cynically funny sort of way. So this week we decided to take a turn for the better and, after spending two weeks debunking the love myths, write about everything that love is. The good news is that we do not need two weeks to write all of the positive things about love because people that find love and recognize it for the beautiful thing that it is do not usually need to invent stupid stuff to screw it up. It takes creativity and imagination to really screw something up. Oh oh, there is the cynical coming out. Back to our peaceful Zen state of love.

Love 101

We are pretty sure that there are some people out there who are really good at loving and being in love. We are positive that there are a handful of folks who could teach a class on Love 101 at their local community college or adult center. We are convinced that just statistically there are those couples who do not need to fret or freak about their relationships because they are healthy and good and all the things people dream about. Unfortunately, we haven’t met a lot of those people so we would love it if you would step up.

Prostitutes make better lovers

The kids are alright. We think. Truth be told we haven’t seen our kids since the last day of school. We basically did a Costco run, bought tons of easy packaged food, bricked up our door and have been living in our bedroom. Sure we can hear them wreaking havoc and we are sure they are doing some kind of construction out there but we stay hidden writing about love myths. Today’s myth has been perpetuated for eons and continues to be among all cultures and forms of media. This myth is one of the worst things a parent can teach their child, aside from eating Cheese nips for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Love and Genghis Khan. Two great conquerors.

With our kids home, we find that by design we have more conversations and need to answer more questions. We also find that having a child a year away from going to college, we are trying to rack our brains for any lessons that we may have forgotten to give her. Separating laundry? Check. Brushing twice a day and flossing once? Check. Love your fellow man and don’t judge those who are different? Check. Those are all important but what about things having to do with matters of the heart? Have we taught her the important lessons that she will need to protect herself and yet know when to give her precious heart?

Does love hurt or is it a gas bubble?

CoupleDumb wanted to take a second and send love and felicitations to all the fathers, stand up guys and Mamas out there that do Daddy duty for a child. Thank you for giving of yourself and being there for a kid. We hope your Daddy’s Day was everything that you deserved! Now to business! What’s going on? It struck us last week that we needed to get some focus. We have the kids home for summer and since we would need to sell a kidney and retina to pay for summer camp, they are firmly wedged up our ass while we try to bring you gem-posts like usual.
