Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

It's Friday and I Don't Have Much to Say

Spousehole's flight from our town to Atlanta yesterday went off without a hitch. His flight to Charleston? Not so much. He and three total strangers rented a car and drove the 300+ miles from Atlanta to Charleston. Must be a guy thing. I don't think women would do that - hop in a car and drive 6 hours with total freakin' strangers.

Why do people, even in our own city, seem to think that moving to Charleston would mean moving to a bigger city? Um, hello, our current city has a larger population (198,000 vs. 118,000 for Charleston) and our metro area pop is larger (780,000 vs. 600,000). Where we live may not be as well known, but it isn't exactly podunk. One difference would be population density. Here it's about 4,400 peeps per sq. mile and there it's about 1,000/sq mile. BIG difference. Not so crowded. Of course, they have a lot of water area that's not inhabited. Then again, we Michiganders have to stay close together to stay warm. :-)

My son has the day off school today (records day? I guess it's a day for teachers to get caught up on all the paperwork that they don't usually have time to do). I may take the kiddos swimming (indoor, obviously, since we got another inch of snow last night). I'll go to my parents' house for a while - let the kids trash their place instead of mine. Actually, I have my dad's car right now. Spousehole damaged the Mommyvan on Wednesday (nothing major, but even "nothing major" costs an arm and a leg to fix these days) and my dad took it to work on it and left me his van. Mine is newer, but his is not too bad, despite the nasty cigarette smoke smell. It has every option known to mankind. Seriously. Anyway, my dad fixed Spousehole's little "boo-boo" and it looks good as new. Or as good as it did before Wednesday. Saved me about $400. Go Dad! So I have to go trade cars back; the kids trashing someone else's house is just bonus.

My body must know spring is on the way, because I'm starting to get incredibly horny. It's like that gets dulled in the cold and dreariness of winter and then when spring hits I'm a wild woman. I get super horny in the spring and it lasts pretty much until summer gets too hot and humid. I guess there's a reason both my kids were conceived in May. Does anyone else experience this?

Guess I had more to say than I thought. Perhaps I should have said I don't have much INTERESTING to say.

The transition from winter to spring has always revved up my libido, though after too long without an outlet for expression, I am starting to wonder about this year...

I spent four years in college in western Michigan and know exactly what you mean. There is something magical about the transition. It is more than just the snow melting and the earth warming up. It is a palpable vibration of energy that stirs the soul of even those dreary and repressed Calvinists.

D said...

as a man, i will say that i don't think the seasons have much effect on our libido. those of us that are normal (read everyone except spousehole) tend to be horny pretty much all the time.

another inch of snow? it was 80 degrees down here yesterday and will be about that again today. have spousehole find a job in central texas. i'll help you with your spring "fever". :)

Weekends Off said...

I'm all for visiting the grandparents and oopsing their house instead. That's how my house was always so clean when the kids were little LOL...

Plus we'd always be asked to stay for dinner.

Yeah, that little inch last night was pretty much totally gratuitous, as far as I'm concerned. I mean, even for Michigan; c'mon, it's freakin' March 28th, fer Pete's sake. . .

And, gosh, my town, just down the road from yours, is about the same size as Charleston (at least in terms of population; altho our 'metro area' is a fair bit smaller). And we definitely think of y'all as 'big city', at least compared to us. . .

And, I know it's spring, 'cuz Molly got dressed without her long-johns the other day. Pretty soon, we'll be makin' love on top of the covers again. . .

That earthy, cyclical awakening of the body in spring is convenient, considering it warms up enough to start stripping off layers. :)

Love the blog, by the way. I'm going to link if that's alright.

Amorous Rocker said...

I dunno about the Spring thing. I stay revved up all year long for the most part, lol. Even during the terrible Texas summers. =D

Go Bunny's Dad! Anything to help save a few extra hundred dollars is awesome. =)

Have a great weekend Bunny!

Project Christopher said...

I agree with d.... our libido is pretty much idling at all times... all we need is a reason to push the gas pedal even just a little. :)

Bunny, you told me spousehole was heading to Charleston. If you have to go to SC, Chas is the best place. Did he fly Delta? Can't imagine why he had to deal with Atlanta. You know what DELTA stands for right? Damn, Everything Leaves Through Atlanta!

Lady in red said...

lol that was why I went back to work when my youngest was 2, let the child minder deal with the mess, 10 years of toddler mess was enough or me. I wasn't put on this earth to weild a vacuum 2 or 3 or more times in one day every day

The Silent Male said...

You definitely had something interesting to say. I could read that part about the increasing libido over and over (and have some interesting fantasies too I might add).

Sailor said...

I don't notice any seasonal change in my sex-drive, I'm pretty much game for whenever/where ever.

Good job to Dad!
