4 Day weekend this weekend so I'm a little behind but I'll catch up.
I saw the new Harry Potter movie over the weekend. Fan-freakin-tastic! I know..I'm a geek.
Hubby and I had an adults' night away with another couple Friday night. It was so much fun. We had a fancy dinner and then went drinkin'...which we haven't done in a really long time. Had a great time and it was nice to find another couple we can hang out with. It reminds me that Hubby and I need a little more time away from the kids. We also hesitate to find sitters or inconvenience my mom for nights out because she's watched them all summer for us as it is while we're at work. Even when the kids are in school, we don't do it much because we feel guilty taking a night away when we're away from them all day as it is. This has got to stop because I can see how not taking the time for just the two of us can really affect the relationship. This weekend was so nice, just being able to spend time with him. Imagine that. I love my hubby.
My youngest daughter got sick over the weekend. Boo! Luckily, it wasn't until Sunday morning but the poor thing just isn't feeling well at all. Hopefully she's doing better today (haven't talked to Hubby or my mom yet to get an update).
So I'm going to embarrass Drazil here just a little. A few months back she did a post about people who took on a sex challenge to have sex every day for a week, month, year, etc. Click here to read it. Draz couldn't see what was so daunting about taking on a challenge to have sex with the man you love for 7 days in a row. Well...we all can't be like Rambo and Draz and go at it like bunnies all the time. Without going into too much detail, having two kids and gaining a bunch of weight wreaked havoc with my libido. But thanks to Draz's post, I mentioned the challenge to Hubby who was all for it (DUH! For some reason, having two kids and me gaining a bunch of weight has NOT affected HIS libido). We started July 1st. We made it two days before it just didn't happen that third day. So we've been trying to start it up again off and on ever since. Saturday we lucked out...we're now on 3 days in a row...a new recent record. (He's going to be so embarrassed reading this...anyhoo...). Even though we've yet to make it through or even half way through "the challenge", it's made a difference in the relationship, I think. I say all of this to say that if you're feeling less intimacy with your partner as of late (and I don't mean just in the sexual sense), you may want to give this a try. I feel it's actually bringing Hubby and I closer together on a couple different levels. Oh! And get rid of cable. We haven't had ANY TV (we just watch movies) since we moved into our new place in May and this has done a lot for intimacy too. I'll be honest though, I miss TV sometimes.
So what else is new? My hubby's second interview went pretty well but we're waiting to hear if he's moved on to the panel interviews. We also have a lead on another job that would just work out so perfectly well for us. The first job would be a mental health move and the second job would be a financial godsend. So please, please send good vibes out into the universe for him on one of these jobs.
Hope everyone's having a good week so far. I'll be getting caught up and commenting today (I know you've missed me the last few days).
