The 30-day sex challenge: Days 17 & 18

Day 17 – The road to Sexyville started with a fight. Well, not necessarily a full blown fight, but rather a “disagreement.” As we were lying down to bed, Hubby said something stupid. To which I called him on. And then we began the back and forth. ME: you need to shut up right now.... Read more »

The 30-day sex challenge: Day 16

So on the 16th day, this happened: The whole experience was surreal. Waking up at 5 in the morning to get myself “camera ready”, arriving at the studio, being ushered to the Green Room. Spending 45 minutes in the Green Room, shaking in my boots while watching promos of my upcoming segment, the announcer... Read more »

The 30-day sex challenge: Day 15

Still reeling from yesterday’s events. Disbelief, thankfulness and then complete panic eventually settles in as the day goes on. My brain quickly overloads with questions; what should I wear? What should I say? What if they ask questions that I can’t answer, making me look like a dumbass on television? WHAT IF, WHAT IF, WHAT... Read more »

The 30-day sex challenge: Day 14

What happened on this day was something I never in my wildest dreams thought would happen. I had my weekly lunch date with my friend Jules, which in a way is almost better than sex and certainly cheaper than therapy. We spent a couple hours unloading about the previous weeks’ events, while enjoying a cheap... Read more »

The 30-day sex challenge: Day 13

For the first time since starting this challenge, I spent the evening alone. Hubby took Dude on a camping trip for weekend, a bit of daddy/son bonding time. I totally respect this and encourage them to spend as much time together possible. Plus, it’s nice to take a break from each other every once in... Read more »

The 30-day sex challenge: Day 12

On Day 12, Hubby came home with a raging headache. He barely touched dinner, then eventually wandered off to the bedroom to cuddle with Dude. A bit of Daddy-Son bonding time. I know this is something they both cherish, so I didn’t interfere. An hour later, I checked on them and needless to say, both... Read more »

The 30-day sex challenge: Days 10 & 11

On these days, life once again caught up with us. Between work, commuting, meal making, homework, errands, cleaning, negotiating, bathing, dish washing, child wrangling, reprimanding, laughing, hugging and just living, we were toast. On Day 10, we fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow. On Day 11, after lying down in bed,... Read more »

The 30-day sex challenge: Day 9

Tonight, I pulled out the big guns. Instead of wearing my usual PJ pants and t-shirt to bed, I dug deep into the depths of my closet and pulled out The Lingerie. Either the stars must have been aligned properly or my mojo was in high gear, but I was in a particularly good mood,... Read more »

The 30-day sex challenge: Day 8

My day was spent grocery shopping and cleaning the house. I know, sexy, right?! But spending 2 glorious hours alone walking up and down the aisles of my local grocery store while Hubby dealt with the kids at home could almost be considered a form of foreplay. After I got home, Hubby spent the day... Read more »

The 30-day sex challenge: Day 7

I HAD SEX TONIGHT! Well, kinda. Sorta. I dry-humped a wedding photographer, does that count?! I spent the day as a loyal Bridesmaid to my cousin Shannon. It started at 5:30 in the morning and didn’t end until midnight, but holy crap what a ride! Everything went along without a hitch and the ceremony was... Read more »
