    Default How do you stay Sane?

    My wife and I have 50 days remaining before heading to CSS. We honeymooned in 1997 at now CTI and have been wanting to go back to couples for years now. With work, kids, activities, ups and downs of life we finally booked back in August to attend in March (21-28). The issue I have is that we live in Eastern Ontario Canada and it has been freezing and snow mounting. Work has been crazy (70 hours a week for myself ) and my wife has been busy with work and driving the boys to hockey and other activitis and hitting the bed at 10pm everynight. We are going in-sane knowing that paradise is just around the corner but how do we/you stay sane with everything life throws to you? Pictures don't do it anymore?

    We put magnetic numbers up on our refrigerator door starting with 99 days. First thing every morning when you change your number countdown it will put a smile on your face! Best $1.99 we ever spent.

    Try thinking about all those poor folks who have countdowns longer than yours (like us who are sitting on 682 days).
    Happy & Safe Travels!

    Needbluewater... Just imagine the countdown cortal has been going through! If they had a countdown clock starting from their visit in 1997 the clock would have started with 6200 days on it!!! Now I understand they didn't book this trip clear back then, but just imagine!!

    79 days 14 hours 31 minutes!!

    Send your wife a photo or video of Couples every day. There are so many on line you won't have trouble finding them. It will make you both feel better. This winter has been exceptional! If we weren't going to couples in March I don't know how I'd make it.

    1. Listen to some Bob Marley in the car, to and from work
    2. Get some Red Stripe for at home
    3. Find some frozen Patties at your local grocery store
    4. Go to YouTube and find videos of CSS
    5.Get out the suitcases
    If all this fails...Xanax!

    EMBRACE THE INSANITY!!! Forget trying to do things to ease the pain. There is no cure. Multiple countdowns don't work. A screen shot of your Couples beach as your background doesn't work. Listening to reggae music does not work. 10 Bob Marley shots doesn't work.
    The only way to ease the pain is to first admit it, you are a Couples addict. Second is to stand up and confess your insanity, (follow the link below)

    http://couples.com/mb/showthread.php...-Support-Group

    Come join the many who have stepped up and embraced the addiction. Preach to everyone how wonderful Couples is, and how it has changed your life for the better. Let them believe that you are actually insane and need help. Little do others know the amazing experience it is to be a full fledged Couples "junkie".
    There is no cure for the insanity. Embrace it, live it, love it!!!
    Once you go, you know...
