How ” Dexter” Saved My Relationship….by Carly Bean As a working mother of one, I’m sure I’m just as tired as all the other mom’s out there. I’m sure I’m as frazzled, forgetful, and stressed out as the next. There is one small difference though, my child has a chronic health issue. This makes life a little more difficult. My boy, however, is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. He’s so smart, bright, loving, frustrating, sassy, etc. He’s everything mixed together in one beautiful package. That being said my life leaves very little quality time for me and Bill. We have a sort of “tag- team” approach to parenting going right now. He walks in the door from work, and I walk out. Some days we hardly get ten minutes together to chat about the usual stuff. When we can scrape a couple hours together out of our day what do you think we choose to do? We lay around, of course, and watch tv!
We started watching “Dexter” a couple months ago and are almost up to date with the series. And though “Dexter” is a great show, it’s not so much the content of the program I love, it’s the togetherness with Bill that I love. I can’t wait to watch “Dexter” with Bill. There’s no, “it’s your turn to change the diaper” there’s no, ” don’t forget it’s trash day tomorrow” there’s no, “hurry home, I can’t be late for work”. There’s just us, and Dexter Morgan! We watch as often as time allows with our crazy lives. It’s important to spend time with your love, spouse, significant other, etc. If you lose that closeness, that intimacy, then what’s the friggin point? What will happen I wonder, once “Dexter” Season 6 is finished you ask? I’ll certainly take suggestions for our next series to be addicted to! Carly
