Ok so I really must catch up on Jenn’s prompts and then when I get home tonight I promise to record and post my vlog. It has been SO much fun watching everyone else’s!!!!! Thanks Stupid Stork! I love this!!!!!
Ok, back to the prompts:
October 18: Make an acrostic of your first name (or pseudonym) using each letter to describe yourself.
Eager (beaver! HA!)
October 19: What is your favorite quote?
I’m a total quote junky, but this one is the one that I actually live daily and really resonates with me most:
“No matter what hapens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.”
October 20: Tell us a little something about your grandmother.
She’s complicated. She’s an older Chinese woman who had her marriage arranged to a much older man. She moved from China to Hong Kong during the war and that’s where she married my grandfather. He moved her to his home in IOWA of all places and that’s where she spent her 20s. She then moved to California and brought her family to the States. They didn’t like the cold of Northern Cali much so they moved to L.A. and she stayed here.
She is caring, funny, believes in equal rights for men & women and abhors arranged marriages. But she didn’t always start out that. Well, except the arranged marriage part. 😉 My grandfather was a kind, funny, hardworking man and she was lucky to have him. Unfortunately he passed away at 72 and my grandma was only 57 at the time. 20 years later she’s still alone and very much alive & kickin’! I think she hates the loneliness.
But even though she’s seen and been through so much in her life, she’s so happy and thankful. We have great fun together and I’m closer to her than my own mother. Oh! And because she started off in Iowa, her English is pretty good! Not great, but totally passable! 😉
October 21: Are you satisfied with your sex life? Would you like more, less, or is it just right?
I am in love with my sex life!!!!!! How can that be when we’re dealing with infertility and had an early miscarriage, you ask?! Well, I’ll tell you.
It’s actually pretty simple: GUILT and determination. lol
I feel sooo bad our sex life got so crummy for so long. I know it happens, but when Hubster and I reminisced about the early days, it was so shocking to see the contrast. Gone are the days of the 3-hour marathons and HOTT car sessions. Gone are the days of laying in bed all day on a Sunday watching TV, screwing, napping, screwing, eating, screwing, napping, screwing, eating…you get the picture. Literally all day. At least a couple of times every month. And definitely gone are the days of changing position after position after position after position in one sitting. I’ve become a wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am kind of girl.
I finally realized, after our slump following the Shades craziness, that I needed to make our sex life more of a priority. I was putting the burden of “lovemaking” onto Hubster and that wasn’t fair. Yes, I was going through the treatments. No, I had no desire whatsoever to have sex…not even in order to procreate…but I did it. And to do it I wanted candlelight, sexy music and dim lighting (I mean seriously, who feels sexy on fertility meds?!?) in order for me to get into the mood to have Hubster do the job. Yes, this is where I shamefully admit I have been on top maybe twice for all of our babymaking sessions!!
Seeeee?!? I have so many reasons to feel guilty. And I do. So I am determined not to let our sex life suffer because of infertility. I already can’t seem to make babies for my husband, there is no way I’m going to deprive him of fun awesome sex anymore!
So I don’t. I try to work up the desire to actually have sex more times than I deny his requests. I have sent myself reminders to initiate sex during non-babymaking times. And now, my groove is back and I’m almost as horny as my husband! I think once I made it a priority and made myself do it, I started to like it again. And I started to want it again. I also have another sexy secret I’ll share you in a couple of weeks. Hubster has been reading blogs again and I don’t want to blow the surprise so it’ll have to wait. Hi Honey!!! 😉
October 22. Favorite sexual position?
Doggy-style and missionary. I like the force that comes with doggy-style and now that my flat ass is getting more toned and rounded, Hubster really likes it! I love the compliments that come my way, let me tell you! And I like missionary for the sweet lovemaking sessions. I like to look at his face and it just feels more close and connected. And for some reason spooning makes me more sore…
There you have it, friends! And in a few short hours, my tired (but excited) mug will be splashed upon your computer/cell phone screens. Can’t wait! 🙂
