I waited to start the Sex-Periment Challenge until February, because it was just too soon after the Haiti earthquake to do it in January.
Heh. Heh. Do it. Get it?
Wondering if your kids' birth family is alive or dead, and dealing with their behaviors ... yeahhhh ... can screw with ye ole sex life, particularly if you are trying to have a LOT of sex.
LIVING through the earthquake? Those people are just now thinking about holding hands again.
Then my husband was studying to pass that old advanced math certification dume-a-jiggy. Theorems and exponents make me HOT, baby. *cough* Then there is the stress of actually passing. Then there is the post depression of NOT passing the test by just EIGHT POINTS and him diving back into studying for the lower level test and then eventually the retake. "Oh, baby, right there ... right there on my surface area!"
While we were still having a fairly normal amount of sex, we certainly weren't setting any records. Things were settling down and I was all, "Okay - here we go - we are soooooooo knocking out a week straight."
Yeah, then Willie put a bullet in his chest.
Yet, the whole point of the Sex-Periment is to be having MORE sex. We are having more sex considering all the crap life has thrown at us this month. Years ago, I promise you, I would not have even let my husband put his hand on the small of my back during this kind of tough stuff. It was the first way I shut down. It was a dark cave I crawled into, and it just seemed easier to stay there, than to work my way back out to him.
Who knows? Maybe we'll get a full week in. It is in these times we need this connection the most. I make it a priority now, which is why rough life crap doesn't look the same in our bed as it used to.
What about you? What's your libido killer, and have you set up camp in your cave - having no plans to reemerge anytime soon?
