I’m not sure exactly when the last time I had sex was…I’m guessing about two weeks ago (although I’m sure if I asked my husband when it was he could rattle off the precise minute and date!) and I feel guilty. I worry I’m neglecting my relationship and that becoming more like roommate buddies is probably not the best way to keep our relationship on track.
Of course I know I’m not alone… and that unlike Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, most of us married folk are not having swinging from the chandelier five times a day sex (and yes I am incredibly jealous as I type this of their ability to mange sex five times a day). I know I’m in the majority of married couples who are in a sense not coupling… and for the most part are probably not even snuggling, holding hands or brushing against one another unless it’s to pass the dirty dinner plates to load in the dishwasher.
I want to say I have FIVE tips that will get you and your spouse revved up and ready to do the nasty– even when you smell like breast milk, your son has taken every one of your husband’s ties and decided to make a very long getaway rope with them, and your daughter is melting down because she doesn’t understand her math homework and thinks she is a failure because she can’t master the splits her cronies are attempting in gymnastics class. But I don’t have five tips, I barely have even one.
It’s SEIZE the moment… No matter how insignificant it might feel, grab your spouse and hug or kiss them, just touch one another, and no not while you’re handing off the baby, or the garbage or passing around the Tequila. Touching and holding hands can never lead you down the path to anything but goodness (and maybe light a fire under you to get busy).
Am I wrong?!
