In case you needed another reason…

This article is GREAT! This article speaks of how having sex with your partner has many benefits besides the obvious, immediate ones! Well, duh. God gave it to us for a reason other than just making babies he made it to be enjoyable., and to connect.

I also, know that with so much stress in the world, just finding the time to make love to your partner can be like looking for buried treasure with no map…. ¬†But imagine the feelings you get when you find it.

The article suggest that making love just one time a week can really help a relationship, it list that it is good for men’s prostate health, promotes self-esteem, relieves stress and boost your immune system… Just in time for flu season. ūüėČ

I do have to say that whenever I feel a disconnect with my husband it is because I haven’t had a REAL conversation with him in days outside of how was your day, what bills are do… blah blah blah! -and we haven’t had a good romp. The act of intimacy is indirect communication, and being intimate is being in that persons innermost parts…. thoughts, mind, feelings. And it feels *F-bomb* AMAZING!

It is easy to get lost in a relationship and fall into ruts but you really can see how finding that connect even if it is once a week is so important and if it helps me to fight off the flu, or become successful .. even more reason to get in between the sheets!

 

Same Game, New Strategy

OK.. So, not that I have any followers but even if you read any of my posts it is not hard to see that I have been lazy in my attempts to be frugal.  I have been lazy in posting and what posts I have posted are lacking WOW and Frugal fabulousness.

I have had a bit of a wacky few weeks that have taken my energy away from such things and the real blog world. I am new to this whole blog thing so I am trying to make habit of recording my life with words and pictures, The words not as hard as remembering to take pictures of everything and I mean everything, like so many fabulous blogs I see.

So, I am aware of how mine lacks the “HOT DAMN!!!” factor. And, I’m trying…

I do have a memory card full of pictures the challenge now is to track down my cord so that I can get said pictures off the camera and into my blog!

I have completed my first wreath that I had to make and have after seeing so many at the store that although absolutely stunning and beautiful, I refused to spend that kind of money on something that doesn’t fly me to my next paradise destination.

I have almost completed decorating my living room. Well, I don’t know if anyone is ever finished decorating, but I’m getting my living room to finally flow.

I got Charlie neutered. ;( – which I posted before was a FRUGAL ALERT! $55.00

My living room will have its own post because it really was a FRUGAL ALERT TREASURE! I’m trying to work with what I have and that ain’t much.. but needless to say I’m making it work.

My husband is gone on business for the next month so my ability to budget and track what is going on should improve. This also, just gives me more free time to get things done and BLOG about it! I am trying to find the positive things of my honey being gone because day 3 and I’m already missing him.

I’m usually good for 14 days and then drastic measures to keep my sanity are needed. But my blog should really grow this month! I do have many things going on month to keep me on my toes and buzzing like a bee. Which is great because I will have much to blog about.

I am planning Emily’s Bridal shower and that takes place on the 6th of November so right around the corner. Trying to plan and decorate and buy gifts and then the 5k this weekend. Which kills a whole weekend so that makes time that much tighter, and then having to budget and still be frugal while having to spend extra to make sure that everything is wonderful for her special day, is another obstacle¬†on my course. So, like I said much to blog AND learn this month!

I am excited!

Being the bigger person

I’m tired of being the bigger person. I’m tired of doing the right thing all the time, as I am saying this I also, know that I will in the end do the right thing anyway, because IT IS THE RIGHT thing to do! But Grrrrrrr! I’m always the first to apologize. The first to forgive, to forget, to make amends, to say everybody makes mistakes, to agree to disagree. But sometimes I get tired of being railroaded. I bite my tongue. I don’t hit below the belt. And, yet some how the story gets turned, I feel guilty for a reason unknown to me and I just let go! Which is what I need to do in this instance.. JUST LET IT GO!!! but GRRRRR!

I have daydreamed though of screaming at the rude, un-hurried and inattentive waitress who brought me the complete opposite of what I asked for, but no  I eat it and still leave a 20% tip.

I have fantasized about throwing my coke in the face of the fast food lane guy who, obviously does not want to be working and could care less if my fries are cold, gave me the wrong change and forgot to put my screaming child’s nuggets in the bag and then argues that I even ordered them. But, I just apologize for inconveniencing¬† “HIM” and I stop at the next fast food joint and grab more nuggets.

One day I’m going to do it. I’m going to just sit in the left turn lane until it turns green again when the inpatient person behind me honks for me to go before I even have time to take my foot of the brake and accelerate the micro second the light does turn green. I’m going to park my car, get out and ask them “do you need something?, because you couldn’t have possibly been honking at me to go, the second the light turned green?”

A girl can dream.
