Month To MonthThat's how my sex life works. My wife started her period yesterday and I laughed and said "you made it another cycle without having to have sex. It's like having a picnic and finishing before the misquitoes come. You know they are coming, they are going to bother you, but you made it through". She actually laughed and I asked, do you think about sex or intimacy and she said yes. The problem is she thinks about a lot of things but doesn't take action. She thinks about rejoining weight watchers, she thinks about doing a couch potato to 5K program but doesn't, she thinks about being active but ends up watching DVR's TV or rummaging Facebook for hours on end. I've come to the realization that it's just who she is. Now I just need to figure out if I can live with it for the long term.
I can't go into all the back channels of our relationship, family issues, weight gain/weight loss, depression, etc. I understand it all and sympathize with her struggles but at some point you need to take charge of your own sitiation and be responsible for your life. I know I do!
The reason we don't have sex? She's lazy. We love each other, communicate, and share in all facets of a busy household. She gets more than enough "her time". If I fold another sheet, wash another dish, or cook another meal it won't make a difference. Actually when I'm done typing this I'm going to the grocery store with the kids and out to play at the beach. She'll stay at home.
Off to be the best parent I can be.
