My Boring Life

My life is really boring right now.

But you know what? I am so ok with boring.

I haven't been blogging because nothing interesting is happening. When people ask me what's new, the answer is always the same: nothing.

In the past few weeks since Leland and I have had nothing going on, I have realized that I really like my boring life. I like going to work, going to the gym, and then coming home and making dinner with Leland, followed by some cut-throat games of Mario Kart Wii. On the weekends we have been staying in, maybe having a few friends over to play some games. Though those times are fun, I don't really get any good stories out of them. They are just some relaxing evenings spent inside.

We are getting ready to go out of town for the weekend for a wedding and last night Leland was coloring my hair. We were getting a little annoyed with each other because I thought he didn't know what he was doing and he thought I was being bossy, but even through the tension, I enjoyed doing nothing with him. I liked that we were together, just being us, and not really doing anything all that cool or exciting. And though we have a very long list of things we need to do tonight before we leave tomorrow morning, I am looking forward to doing chores with Leland. It will just be us, living our boring life, and I am very ok with that.

Hump Day Hangover

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

It is a sad day here in Hump Day Land.

Though our year isn’t quite up, Leland and I are admitting defeat.

Having sex 700 times in one year was impossible for us. Though we think we gave it a good try, it just wasn’t possible for us to do. Hell, it may not be possible for anyone to do. Having that much sex was HARD.

We forced ourselves to do it even when we didn’t want to. We would spend days humping like rabbits just to try and catch up. But with only a month left and only having had sex 331 times, we aren’t going to try to fool ourselves into thinking that we can have sex 369 times in one month. So this is me admitting that we couldn’t do it.

But not for lack of trying….

My life has been one long string of impromptu decisions, and the decision to give this a try was made without any thought or planning. We just jumped in the sack and didn’t give it much thought. If only I knew then what I know now…..

Now I know that having sex 2 times a day really is difficult, and if we want to be successful we really need to get a good start. Last February we started and then a week later Leland went out of town for work. If this is going to work, there can be no getting behind, we have to stay ahead of the game.

I also know that after a few months, I will get bored, so to keep it exciting, we need more rules that just to have sex twice a day. I think now we need a sort of checklist. You know, places to do it, positions we want to try, that sort of thing. That way when it does get boring, and it will, we will have some fun and different things to try.

And being so stressed about it didn’t work for us either. Though reaching 700 was the ultimate goal, having our sex be strictly about the goal wasn’t fun either. If I knew then what I know now, I would be more focused on the sex than the number.

There are a lot of reasons that the challenge didn’t work out. Lack of planning, a broken pelvis, the worlds worst yeast infection, Leland’s traveling…..I could go on and on, but I know you don’t want to hear about that.

All you really want to hear is that now that I know all of these things we are going to try again.

And we are. Of course we are!

If at first you don’t succeed try, try again.

So as of Saturday, January 22, we are starting over.

We have a position of the day book.

We have a good sex bible.

We have everything we learned in the last year.

And after a long sex break, we will be back in the habit in a few days.
