It has been a snowy cold few weeks here. I did manage to sneak away for a fantastic ski trip to Killington with my youngest sons. My sister rented a house and invited us up - I was just going to make a 3 day trip with my youngest son, but with snow in the forecast for the week I took my older son figuring he would be out of school anyway.
We ended up being able to stay 5 days because snow at home had the schools closed the boys didn't miss a thing. We stopped in PA on the way home to visit my daughter at college - ended up snowed in at my sisters house.
It was a great vacation - with some great sex when I got home after being gone for a week we were overdue!
But to be quite honest since being home and having that pretty amazing night of sex followed by a morning session we have been pretty out of sync. It is times like this when I start to wonder if in our late 40s after being together for more than 27 years if we are slowing down - or if this is just a natural lull that will pick back up. I of course am hoping it is a lull - I'm too young to be slowing down, hopefully I will always be too young to be slowing down.
This is one of the busiest times for us - boys are wrestling and playing basketball - there is practice every day.
My daughter's season has started and so we are traveling to those games. The days are short and cold. I think we are just exhausted and my husband is clued into the fact that sometimes I need sleep. Unfortunately the nights I need sleep don't seem to be the same nights he needs sleep.
I honestly can't remember ever being refused by my husband so I know he is always ready when I am wanting to break out of the lull.
And to make me feel better about where I am in life and in my relationship all I need to do is look at what is going on around me. My oldest son has a friend that is ending a 5 year relationship - they are 19 and 21 and they have had sex 2 times in 6 months. The only time we had a track record like that is when my husband was serving on an air craft carrier in the Persian Gulf.
I am having a healthy glass of wine - it is only 10:15 and we are both still awake! I predict some action tonight. In fact there is the possibility of a two hour delay for school tomorrow which could mean some action in the morning as well.
So how about some totally of the subject feedback. My daughter's first game is on Saturday - it is 4 hours and 8 minutes away according to Google and it will mean I miss my son's basketball game (I haven't missed one yet this season). Do I go for it and head up to my daughter's game? I am going to her game on Tuesday (that one is only 2 hours away)?
