Hump Day Hangover


If you want to know what this is about click here.



Things have been fairly emotional and depressing over here lately and it's starting to get to me. Though I am a very emotional person, I am still usually happy and upbeat. But it has been a tough month and it was really getting me down. I can't do that anymore. I am tired of being a Debbie Downer.

I still have not heard from my doctor, but I GOT MY PERIOD YESTERDAY.

I was happy and sad at the same time, if that makes any sense.

I am hoping that now that the stress of the fight I had with Leland has passed, as well as the stress of having a late period, that Leland and I can start having some fun between the sheets again. I am sure this isn't a surprise to any of you, but things have been stale in the shagging department all month. We have been trying as much as possible, but it's hard to have sex with someone you're mad at, and just as hard to have sex when you're stressing about a possible unplanned pregnancy. I don't think either of us was really feeling it.

One good thing that came out of all of this is that I really want sex again. Admittedly I was getting sort of tired of spreading my legs all the time. But since we have had sex only 6 times in the last 3 weeks, I am ready for it again. I am ready to be done fighting with my husband. I am ready to throw all the stupidity out the window. I am ready to have sex a million times a day. I just hope Leland is ready to do the same.

My period started today, so I'm not pregnant either. =) Good thing because Grandmas shouldn't get knocked up.
Glad to hear you want to get back on the Shaggin' Wagon.

From a guy's perspective, the moment you wear one sexy article of clothing he'll be putty in your hands.

I hope things start looking up at your house asap! Stress can do all kinds of wacky things to our bodies (and minds).

Oh girl, I know how conflicted you felt about the whole unplanned pregnancy thing - BELIEVE ME. Ha. Our recent discovery wasn't planned either and came when we were least expecting it. But it's all working out now, so you just gotta have faith that everything will work out the way it's supposed to.

I'm glad that you got your period though and now you can relax a little bit. And get back to the shagging. For all of us. ;)

I feel like October has been a rough month for a lot of people. I'm so glad that the things that were stressing you out the most are behind you now!

I'm so glad you can move forward. I know what you mean about being sad and happy and confused all at the same time... it happened to me a few months ago. I was scared, confused and thinking I can do it... all at the same time and then the I can do it part gets shot down. :(

Glad things are settled one way or another. Now you can work on you and Leland..and upping your count.

Glad you got your answer (at least from your body)! I can imagine you are happy and sad, but when you do decide you are "ready" for a baby(whatever that is ;)) the trying will be super fun! :)
Hope things start looking up for you!

I really think that there is something about October. The hubs and I have been having some serious issues lately too and we are now trying to find someplace for family counseling. It is much needed. I hope that things start to mesh again between you two. It is hard to have sex with someone when you are ticked at them but hopefully you can work things out and start shagging again!

Even in the healthiest of relationships, sometimes life just gets in the way. Stress, work, and things that are completely out of your control can definitely take a tole on your relationship.

When I find myself in that kind of place, I take a deep breath and remind myself that things will get better. And they really always do.

Hang in there love;)

still, six times in the last three weeks is nothing to sneeze at :D

yes, mad sex never works - at least for the woman. surprisingly all still goes well for the man

Mandy's Life After 30 said...

We must be on the same cycle. I received AF today. I'm also having very mixed emotions about it. But like you, I intend to put the past behind me and focus on the present -- drinks, sex and all the good things lying ahead!

Hugs to you that this awful month is behind you and that the coming weeks will be wonderful for you, Leland and your family!

All the best,
Mandy

Maybe some of that shagging will actually reestablish some closeness and a new connection and healing. :)

Intense Guy said...

Laffs at Copyboy... and thinks, "Amen, brother..."

Coffeypot said...

Well now, you don't want to get out of shape in the shagging department, so if you fall behind, perhaps I can help you out. I mean, what are friends for if not to have a toss in the hay to keep up morale.

What? No! Not me! But I have some friends….

MiMi said...

If a guy read this they would be super stoked to have sex 6 times in 3 weeks! lol

McVal said...

Oh my! A million times a day will cause a rash... or so I'm told!

Stephanie Faris said...

Go for it. I'm so sorry you're going through tough times but glad that your pregnancy scare is over!

Debbie said...

I'm glad you are feeling more settled and ready to move on!

The Blue Zoo said...

Im glad youre starting to feel better!

6 times in 3 weeks seems like a lot to me! lol

Sandra said...

I'm going to take a wild guess here and say that Leland will be up for the challenge :) Have fun!

Kim said...

I can't believe you still haven't heard from your Dr! Seriously, that pisses me off! They should care more!

I'm sooooo glad that you got some answers from your own body though. And here's hoping (on my end) that soon you'll be announcing a planned pregnancy! :)

StarTraci said...

It absolutely makes sense thatyou feel happy and sad at the same time. A couple of months ago, we had a pregnancy scare and while I was relieved to not be pregnant -- we are not ready for another child AT ALL -- there was a little sadness. I imagined that child even for a moment, inconvenient or not!

I am relieved for you and I am wishing you a lot less stress and a lot more fun with your hubby!
