Talking it out

I've lost around 30 pounds in just over 4 months, folks! So excited. Hubby is trying to join me in the healthy choices camp, but he has exactly zero self control. He's an all or nothing guy while I'm a "one bite of that candy bar is better than none" kinda gal. Boy lost 20 pounds a few years ago and has kept it off (he's at a healthy weight now) but wants to muscle up. We are thinking about doing some sort of long distance workout thing together. Suggestions welcome. Lol I was thinking maybe something we could do on video chat OR on the switch or something? I don't know.

My budget looks terrible right now. Working on that. No more weekend trips for a while. I need to rest anyway. So tired. Annual bloodwork showed some (unsurprising) issues. Upping my iron intake and continuing to lose weight/decrease stress/get fitter should fix them. We'll see in a year, I guess!

I kind of hate my sex drive right now too. I'm into it in the morning then way too tired by night time. Guess who very rarely has a chance to be naked with anyone but herself in the mornings? ME! Ugh. Lol

I hadn't told my guys, but I'd been thinking about kink and trying to gauge my interest in some things again lately. Then Boy and I had our weekend away (was booked/ paid for months ago and I forgot until reminders popped up on my calendar), and... That man. Omg. He showed up with a freaking toy arsenal. Best sex we've had in a while, and we've both been horny messes since. I was surprised because I hadn't mentioned anything other than maybe buying some sexy underwear since I needed some new things anyway. He brought every toy we've ever used together AND bought everything we've ever mentioned, even in passing. So much fun.

Conversations during/after had us both laughing about how in sync we are. I feel like I'm randomly interested in stuff again right when he is too?! I've always leaned more bottom-y with him, but I've been more take charge lately so it flipped a switch in him (ha, a switch, and he considers himself a switch. Just made myself giggle). Anyway, we are feeling very lustful and in love.

Hubby and I... still out of sync sex-wise, but he's gotten some naughty pics lately when I've been inspired. Our schedules suck so much during the week and weekends tend to be busy. Calm this weekend though so I'm totally gonna make it happen!

My health is getting better! Hubby and I have been good lately too. Then, of course, I have the worst period I've had in years so I felt bloated and crampy and gross for a few days. The really crummy thing is that I get crazy horny too, but the mess isn't worth it for a quickie which is about all we have time for during the week. Lol oh well.

Boy scheduled his vasectomy! Pending time off request at work, but that's usually not an issue. Hubby is wanting to try for another kid, so that is a conversation that needs to happen.

I was offered a new job but decided it wasn't worth the schedule, needing a new vehicle, childcare issues, etc. I'm happy doing what I'm doing even if I don't make much

Aaaannnd vasectomy is canceled. They're so short staffed that all elective procedures are on indefinite hold.

Both guys now say another baby would be great. Just when I was over my baby fever. I'm not opposed and finances say it's doable so... we'll see, I guess. I know I'd be excited if it happened, but I also don't think I'd be disappointed if it doesn't. Probably a healthy place to be. Lol

I got a few messages on dating apps recently which is weird since I haven't used them in quite a while. Nothing exciting though.

I have been in the worst mood the last couple of days. The holidays approaching often hits me like this. A combination of excitement and sadness. I'm trying to teach the child about the actual history of the holidays and not just the happy "together and thankful" stuff, while still enjoying the cheap turkey, time off work, etc.

My dad has been pushing for a visit, but until kid is vaccinated it isn't happening for sure. I've also told him that one negative comment about my life, and I won't ever return to the home state. I've been so close to cutting contact completely multiple times. Even when they aren't judging my life, my parents are getting more and more conservative and problematically republican as they age. Considering both their kids are not straight and not monogamous, it's really sad how unwelcoming they are. I do find it amusing when they talk to little girl and she says something about marrying a boy or 2 or 3 when she grows up then says "I could marry a girl too, but I'm just not in love with a girl yet. Maybe when I grow up." It's hilarious, because I've clearly taught her that she can love whomever, however many, etc. She refuses to accept that by the time she's an adult, multiple marriages for one individual might still be illegal. Lol

My period was late. I tested. It was faintly positive, but I started my period later that day. So either a very early miscarriage or a false positive. I don't really have strong feelings either way, other than being glad I didn't tell either guy about the test.

I've been playing the swipey online dating game for fun. A few matches but no one super interesting. I've sent a few messages, because I'm so bored and would love to make a friend (I only swipe right for people who claim to be open to friendship as well as dating, since there will need to be crazy sparks for me to want to make time to really date). People are just so blah these days! Mental health struggles of the masses are no joke.

The holidays were so fun. We were able to go to a local theater and see the new Spiderman. Little girl and I also went to see an old Christmas movie there. So fun. Life is still busy as ever though.

We got some family pictures taken that I haven't done anything with yet. I need to get prints for my house and at least one for Boy's place.

Hubby and I will be going to visit his parents soon. So obviously omicron happens, norovirus and lice are going around the school, and all that fun stuff. My kid hasn't been sick so apparently she is as good about her mask and hand washing as she says she is. 😆
