Jack was unlucky enough to get sick with whatever I had over the weekend. ON TOP of being so ill I thought I might die, I got my period Sunday afternoon.
Fortunately Jack and I were able to squeeze some nice, long, love-making into Sunday morning, before my period arrived, and before he became ill. I’m glad I was feeling up to it, because going too long without sex makes me cranky, LOL.
It was one of those morning where you just lounge in bed until almost noon. Our kids are fairly happy to entertain themselves, provided that they get fed. We cuddled and talked and touched and snuggled. It was fantastic, just what I needed after feeling so awful the day before. We haven’t had a morning like that in months, or so it seems to me, so it was extra special.
Jack came down with it on Monday night, and took yesterday off to recover. I did my best to care for him and baby him, especially considering how wonderful he had been to me. By evening he decided he felt well enough to watch the kids for a couple of hours and encouraged me to go to the gym. It was just what I needed, and I enjoyed the time to myself, sweating and listening to my music.
I am back on track with my fitness and eating, which feels SOOOOOO good. I will be in reasonable shape for the summer, and I really have no excuses, since I have a free gym membership that I rarely use. Plus friends who are personal trainers and can answer any questions I might have, without having to pay through the nose to hire one myself.
I reward myself at the end of my workouts by stretching out in a tanning bed for 20 minutes. People have been commenting that I look tanned, which I like, since my skin tone is naturally darker and a tan suits me. It’s a good incentive to go to the gym, and it makes me look and feel great!
This week has been pretty uneventful thus far. This evening, once the kids are in bed, I plan to treat Jack to a luxurious full-body massage. I haven’t spoiled him like that in a while, plus I just got some new massage oil and I want to try it out.
Plans for another party are in the works. Everyone had such a fantastic time at our New Year’s Eve Bash, they have been asking when we plan to host another gathering. I would like to do that in the next couple of months, so I’ve been tossing around possible theme ideas. Perhaps a Tarts & Vicars Party, a la Bridget Jones’s Diary. Or I’ll have everyone dress up as different animals. That could be fun. Ohhhhhh or a sexy masquerade party, and everyone has to wear a mask. That way I could post pics on Ye Olde Blog here.
Happy Hump Day, friends and lovers and everyone in between!
