Gone Girl…Have You Seen It?

Carving time out for yourself is crucial when you have children. The other day I snuck in a matinee with a group of friends. Part of me felt guilty going to a movie while my children were at school but that quickly faded as the lights went down and my feet went up in the cushy recliner chair. We were seeing Gone Girl. I was very excited. I had read the book and couldn’t wait to see what they had done with the movie. I was pleasantly surprised. Then I started thinking about my poor friends that didn’t read the book and did not know what they were in for…wow. It’s definitely a movie where you need to be in the right frame of mind when you sit down.   The movie is a work of fiction but as I sat there I thought about how many people can probably relate at some level. Two young people meet and fall in love. They get married. Recession hits. They lose their jobs. Parent gets sick. They move home to care for parent. Parent ends up dying. Fast forward five years and they cannot stand each other. I will leave it here as not to spoil it for those who have not seen it.

 

I should probably clarify that I am happily married and not a psycho. We’ve been married almost 13 years and we’ve been through a lot. We have struggled through custody battles, the birth of three children, the recession, job loss,  aging parents, and starting a new company to name a few.   Life is tough. Marriage is tough.  We are not living in a bubble. It is important to find a way to continue to not only love each other but actually LIKE each other. We always joke that we used to be so much fun, what happened? Life happened. It’s happening. In Gone Girl, the husband isn’t a bad guy and she isn’t awful in the beginning. Life just happens. Struggles will continue to present themselves. The secret is to keep remembering why you liked each other in the first place.  It’s not always easy. But there is always someone out there with a situation worse than your situation. Focus on the positive and work through the other stuff.

 

So thank you Gillian Flynn for yet another reminder that I love AND like my husband.

A Joovy Letter and Happy Joovy *Star* – Deepti Gupta

Dear Doodie,

Just wanted to send you a note of thanks.  Joovy has become part of my family now.  As you can see in the photo attached.   It’s my sister’s 5 month old daughter.  They live in France. I t’s the Joovy Room playard. I passed it on to my sister when she had her baby. And my son still travels regally on his Joovy Groove stroller which is as sturdy as can be. Many people ask  about it or look curiously at the stroller.

Thank you. May the universe send you ten fold.

PS: we also have a Joovy training potty thing for our son. He loves it.

Best wishes,

Deepti Gupta

Have You Been Boo’d?

There is a newer Halloween tradition called Halloween Boo or Booing. It is usually done in your neighborhood. It is similar in nature to the tradition of Secret Santa at Christmastime. It involves leaving a treat and a note saying, “You’ve Been Boo’d” on a doorstep, ringing the doorbell, then running and hiding as fast as you can. When our family got boo’d last year I thought, “Oh great, another thing I have to do.” Well, last year, I was a party pooper and did not participate. Things changed this year. After we were boo’d, the kids were so excited and wanted to spread Halloween cheer, so we did. And I have to say it was the most I’ve laughed in a long time. The kids sat down and picked four families that were a little outside of their inner circle of friends. They wanted it to spread through the entire neighborhood. They felt if they picked their friends, it would just keep circling.   The kids took the booing very seriously.  They huddled before we began Operation Boo.  They were like stealth military operatives going through the neighborhood.   I would stay a house or two away and they would sneak up, leave the treat, ring the doorbell and RUN!   They had dogs barking at them, unhappy babysitters and a few tumbles into the bushes.   All and all it was good, clean fun. If you want to start your own Halloween Boo, just follow these steps:

 

  1. Pick about 4 families.
  2. Pick a treat to deliver. It could be candy, cookies, pumpkin bread…get creative. Our family chose a box of BooBerry cereal.
  3. Download or create a Boo gram. There are thousands to chose from online.
  4. Deliver, ring doorbell and RUN!

 

Please like this post if you have ever been BOO’D!
