    We've had so much sex this week that my vagina hurts and DH actually asked if he could have a night off.

    Lucky. I got sex twice this week. 

    This makes me feel like a complete and utter slacker. We're still only getting it on about once or twice a month in my house. This definitely isnt helping my post baby self esteem at all. It also doesn't help that DH has been working like crazy and is exhausted by the time he gets home.

    You only have a 4 month old?  Give it time.  I say at least a year.  Once we hit that mark, it increased tremendously.  Then I dropped nursing alltogether recently, and BAM!

    I thought twice was doing pretty darn good around here.

    Lol yeah, I'm lucky if I have sex once a week to once every two weeks. DH has a crappy drive. I'm still not entirely sure how we ended up with DD, and it's made TTC #2 pretty hard.

    I feel for you.  This is us too.

    This has also been the case with my DH. He's always had a lower drive than me, but since having DS, my drive has definitely taken a nosedive as well.
    Viagara? Female Viagara is coming out soon too...I just can't fathom this. As long as you're both happy, it's cool I guess, I just can't imagine the built up tension. If I didn't have sex for a month I would end up humping some inanimate object out of the blue.

    I realize you weren't adressing me-- but it's not always as easy as that.  We have tried it all-- Viagra, Cialis, hormone injections (prescribed by a doc, of course).

    DH was dx with low T-- so anyone else that has an H that's dealing with low drive, I would maybe recomend asking him to talk to his doctor.

    I didn't take it as snark at all!

     I just wanted to share since there seem to be a handful of us that are going through similar things so I just wanted to put it out there. I had not ever heard of Low T until H was diagnosed, so I have to assume there are others that don't know about it.

    MH is too embarrassed. We have talked about it. I might to with him to his next physical and bring it up. Along with smoking.  Because he "forgets" these things y'know?

    My H was embarassed as well, but it was getting really bad and I was honestly worried about the state of our marriage.  We still have really long stretches of not having sex.  We actually have not had sex since March 16.  How's that for a confession?

  • Sometimes I'm really flighty and don't think before I do things. A few years ago I randomlay threw away a travel sized propane tank in our regular garbage. Just tossed it in and didn't think twice. Well garbage day came and Dh was still home but I had already left for work. He heard all this commotion outside and looked out the window to find the garbage truck on fire! The guy was trying to put out the fire but it would go out for a second, then explode in flames again! They had to call the FD and have the firemen put it out with their hoses. 

    The garbage comp called Dh later that day to biitch him out and let us know we were put on the "do not pick up"  list. Dh fought it and pushed that there was NO WAY we  put a propane tank in our garbage. It MUST'VE been a  pranker or vandal Bc no one in our house is that stupid! They put us on restricted pick up for 2 weeks as our             punishment instead. 

     

    I got home that night and Dh told me what happened. I admitted to him that indeedI did throw it away w/o thinking.  Eta- I know people could have gotten really hurt, but Dh and I still laugh about me setting a garbage truck on fire.

    Thank you, this is encouraging! I look forward to getting our mojo back. I guess you could say its really been a combo of having the baby, his work, and we're actually starting to get good sleep again now that DS is STTN. I know we'll get there. Patience has never been my strong suit! But you're right..we're just riding it out and I'm sure it'll all fall back into place.

    I agree. I didn't take it as snark either. And I get that there's an ebb and a flow to everyone's sex life. I've oftened wondered if MH's testosterone is on the lower side, since he's mentioned that his sex drive has always been a bit lower than most guys, but i doubt he'd actually speak to a dr about it. I wouldnt say his lower drive has been problematic or anything, but in combination with my lower than usual drive right now, it makes it a little more difficult to get things going! I will say though, when we do get to it, the sex is and has always been amazing. So I'm definitely looking forward to getting it back!

Not in a I always get my way kind of thing but more getting breaks from the kids and getting me time, stuff like that.

    DH is much happier when I'm not a cranky b!tch. I get really moody when I am in pain and it puts a damper on out whole household. I'm not the only thing that impacts his happiness though. I think it's just a silly expression with a little truth behind it.

  • So, DH writes for CBS sports. He works with 2 other writers, and they work in shifts. There's an am (9-3) and pm (3-9) shift each day of the week.

    One of the three guys just got married to a very devout Jewish woman (his words, not DH's). So, now he will not work the Sabbath, which apparently is sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. He is Jewish and worked weekends before, but now he can't, post-marriage.

    So, basically, DH and/or the non-Jewish guy have to work every single Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Of the 5 "weekend shifts" (Friday pm, Saturday am/pm, and Sunday am/pm), this one guy only has to work one of those shifts, because he's not going to be expected to work 2 shifts on Sunday. So, basically the shifts that everyone would naturally want off, Friday night and all day Saturday, he absolutely never has to work, but DH and the non-Jewish guy always have to work, plus one of them has to do a Sunday shift. And then if DH or the non-Jewish guy have plans (like we had a wedding last Saturday that DH was in), the other person has to work 12 hours because there's only 2 of them to cover Saturday.

    I absolutely believe in the freedom of religion, and I don't think there's anything DH or the employer can do, but it really chaps my hide. Apparently, the whole purpose of the Sabbath is to relax, study, spend time with family. So, DH doesn't get very much time on the weekend with his family because he's not religious? It seems really unfair.

    That is unfair and I would be annoyed too. I am of the mind frame that this guy knew the hours he was expected to work when he was hired. He can choose to stay in the job and work his fair share of the hours or find another job where he gets weekends off. It's not ok to dump the responsibility on the other two unless all 3 get those days off equally or semi equally. 

    On the flip side, if he had mentioned that he can't work the Sabbath when he was hired, that's a horse of a different color.

    I think the law states that the employers need to be accommodating to his religion unless it creates an "undue hardship" for the employer.  I'm not sure if this would fall under those laws but if I were your H I'd seriously complain and look into it.  How does it work when one of them takes a vacation, if someone is sick, family emergency, etc. 

    When someone can't work, the other 2 just have to pick up the shifts. So, I guess if we go on a vacation that includes the weekends, DH will either have to work some while on vacation or feel bad that the non-Jewish guy will work almost the entire weekend for him, including Friday night. DH would probably just choose to work because he would feel bad...a feeling the other guy apparently is immune to.

  • DH definitely can't rock the boat, as these big corporations will just axe people. His job started with 96 people and they've fired so many people that it's down to these 3.

    And the guy used to work Saturdays, it wasn't until he got married that he required this.

    It just seems absurd to be a sportswriter that can't work on Saturdays. `

    Yeah, I did the same thing, too. Embarrassed I feel like, maybe, though, the perves have gotten smarter and can seem more like a young kid now, even easier than before. It scares me.

    Yeah, true. I just read the story about the 15-year-old in Maine that was kidnapped by a 20 y/o who made a fake FB profile using the name of a kid from a different high school. He wanted to be a "hero" by having her "go missing" and then he'd find her but she died while duct taped in his truck.

    It's scary. I don't know what I'll do. 

    My step daughter had a much older guy that was talking to her in chat rooms just hop on a bus and show up on her doorstep.   It happens in real life and teenagers don't realize how much they reveal about themselves online. She thought she was just being flirty and fun and he thought very differently. Definitely know what your teens are doing online.  It is much better than dealing with it after the fact.

  • The house behind ours has foreclosed and I've just recently found out there's poison ivy back there, hidden within the overgrown grass and bushes.  The city won't do anything and I am seconds away from grabbing the ground clear and spraying the crap out of it.  

    What's shocking to me is that the family that lived there had 6 kids and their yard was always that bad, which leads me to believe they let their kids play in a yard that had that crap growing in it.

    I would absolutely take it upon my house to spray the everloving shiiit out of that yard and if it kills everything including the grass, so be it. The bank isn't going to do d1ck to help you...they'll just sell it as is.

    For sure. Kill the grass, weeds, poison ivy, dandelions...kill it all! I know I would!

    How long ago was this?  Just wondering because it seems that teens are using it more and more to keep in touch with their friends vs. going into AOL chat rooms and going "a/s/l?" until they find some random to talk to.  I'm not saying it never happens, but I think it was bigger when the internet first came out.  I may be totally oblivious to how teens really are today though and living in a bubble. 

    Teens still use sites like myyearbook.com and stuff to "chat" with new people (I have teenage sisters, the oldest just turned 19, the youngest is 12). 

     

    Lurker here. haha LO needs to get out so I can join this board. 

    Anyway, I'm 19. So high school was about five minutes ago for me. PLEASE know what your kids are doing online. The amount of stuff I got away with is ridiculous. Same with DH (he's 21). Teens can and will hide a lot on the internet from you. I'm still telling my mom half the crap I got away with, she is shocked. 

    Chat rooms still exist. Difference now? Almost every laptop, ipad, phone and computer has a camera. So now they can send pictures, video chat, etc. A lot of the time with people they do not know. Chat roulette, snap chat, etc. All get used in ways you would never want to imagine your child doing.  I know everyone wants to trust their child, but it takes one creep who is good with words, to make your child give out info and pictures that can seriously come back to haunt them.

    Better yet? Sending naked pics to people they do know. Like the boy in their 10th grade science class that they just "know" they are going to marry some day. If that picture gets leaked, they both get slapped in the face with a child porn charge. I have seen it happen. Please monitor what your teens are doing, just a little bit.

    We've had so much sex this week that my vagina hurts and DH actually asked if he could have a night off.

    We had so much sex Memorial Day weekend, I honestly don't care we haven't DTD since Monday. Things have really gotten much better in the Lucky household lately in that regard!

    I changed my mind about the new Arrested Development. Earlier this week, I posted about how disappointed I was. Well, several more episodes in, and my attitude has changed drastically. I had spoken too soon.

    This probably deserves its own thread :)

    Halfway through. I feel like the Michael plot line builds as it goes. I feel like the George Sr./Oscar plot better be going someplace good, so far it's a drag with a few funny moments. The Tobias/Lindsey stuff is the best. David Cross and Arrested Development really need each other in a true symbiotic relationship. It's the best stuff he's done in forever, and he's the best part of the show.

    At least the good thing is today people are more aware of the dangers of the Internet. When we first got AOL I was giving my address out all willy nilly to boys in chatrooms so they could write to me. I'm thankful that it seems they actually were all just teenage boys who lived across the country and not creepers. 

    If only there was a way those boys could have written some kind of electronic mail to you!

    There was a point when I hadn't yet kissed a girl and I had 3 or 4 "girlfriends" on AOL. Who I had never spoken to on the phone (ok, I spoke to one of them on the phone) or seen pictures and could have been adult men. Still, I was *such* a playa.

    DS started crawling yesterday. We haven't baby proofed a thing.

    Baby proofing is *slightly* overrated, depending how often you want to leave them alone in a room.

    I think it's good to have ONE babyproofed room for containment. But no house will ever be 100% safe. Outlet covers are cheap and easy to install, so I do recommend getting on that.

    I went on a blind date with a girl I met on the Detroit Red Wings chat room back when I was in Jr. High.  The movie I chose was Batman and Robin...that was probably a mistake.

    My sister's boyfriend got robbed at knifepoint this week. His friend was stabbed twice in the lung. They were hanging out in a shady area and weren't aware of their surroundings per their story. My confession is that while I am glad no one was killed and everyone is ok, I hope it taught them a lesson about the fact that you have to be choosier about your activities and surroundings in Chicago compared to the small town where we all are from.

    Oh my god! That is awful!!!

    My confession is I get nervous walking past groups of teenage boys, even though our place is near a HS and 99% of the time the're just hanging out and avoiding their parents. I'm probably a Paranoid Parrot in the opposite direction.

    False.

    Awful movies are great for making out. I got more mackin' done during bad movies than good ones.

    Was she cute?

    I am sorry I disagree. Even if you are with them in a room, as they grow, they'll find things to get into within a millisecond. Now that he reaches counters and can open anything, I love the cabinet locks we installed in our kitchen and bathrooms. And I did it all when I was pregnant, even though we didn't need some of those till now. He's growing so fast I wouldn't have had the time to think of all these as he was getting into things.

    We have those accordion style doors in a couple places and the few times we forgot to slide the lock across the top, whatcha know, he got his fingers in the fold.

    Well, I guess I tend to take more of a reactive rather than proactive approach to most babyproofing. I also think that the house doesn't have to be baby proofed as soon as they are crawling. Once they walk they can access a lot more, obviously.

    We're mostly done babyproofing now, but it was a very piecemeal, gradual effort.

    She was cute but we were both so incredibly awkward that it was tough to get a conversation going.  It didn't help that her Dad gave me the stink eye when he dropped her off at the theater and I was scared to do anything that could set him off.

    I haven't had sex since October.

    My FFFC: I just told DH that having sex will help me push out the baby because it will help stretch out my vagina. He looked surprised but said okay. I told him it was sex or perinal (sp?) massage...we will be having sex soon. I am a horrible horrible person.

    Are you having a girl?  Have you learned this stink eye. We only have a son but if we have a daughter in the future, I want DH to master the stink eye of death for any potential suitors.

    We are having a boy but I fully intend on learning the fine art of "the look" for him.  My Dad was a pro who could make me fear for my survival without raising his voice.
