I'm still here. I really fell off the blog universe for a long time. Still living the 'yes' life about 85%, looking to get back to 100%.
I'm not sure how much I will post but I do miss it - so we will see what happens.
Lets see - I'm older now 45. I'm fatter now, ugh metabolism changes have hit me pretty hard. Working on getting my fit back!
My oldest son recently got married, he and his new wife and their 90 pound dog are currently living with us. My husband and I are fine with this - they are both recent college graduates, have continuing studies going on and are saving for a house.
My daughter is in college and loving it. She is an athlete, in the honors program, an RA and working in the admissions office. Her season starts at the end of the month and I am so looking forward to driving all over the east coast to watch her play.
My two little guys are growing into fine young men. I forgot how fun puberty can be but this second 'litter' of kids is reminding me.
So how do I get back to 100%. First step - look at the factors keep me at 85%. I know what they are and I know that I often do them on purpose.
- Staying up later than my husband - this is a big one for me. This is the number one roadblock.
- Not initiating when I want sex. I have to do more than be there and apparently I really suck at sending out the proper signals. This is the number two roadblock.
- Letting little things annoy me and then withholding sex. Argh - old habits, but this doesn't happen often at all. Again this is my old standby of turning my back to my husband in bed and making myself unavailable. This has only happened once or twice - but is really a very juvenile way to handle being annoyed with my husband.
