He always wants it!  Until I get interested. 

I am somewhere in peri menopause.  Very irregular smoothies,  dry as a desert and just not interested between hot flashes and mood swings. 

Yes.  Feel sorry for my family and a prayer probably wouldn't hurt either. 

Today he woke up ready for action but I'm just not frisky until I've had my cup of earl grey.

Around lunch time I started getting interested but Dragon didn't look so good.  He was passing another kidney stone and thought it would be like the others.  Uncomfortable but manageable.


Off to the ER.  Turns out it is a very large stone that is not likely to pass on its own and the other kidney has an even larger stone. 

Fun stuff.

So. No sex for me.  Pain meds and probably another trip to the doctor.  Blag

Sharing Food

Monday nights are hectic.  Dragon gets off work and meets me in a parking lot in the city.  I have to wait several hours while the kids are in class.  We get any shopping done that won't wait and grab something to eat.  Fast and cheap usually. 

We were discussing where to go and I mentioned a little chicken place that has a plate we usually share.  It is a LOT of food.  Less than two orders but I don't eat much.  Two fingers, a few fries and the coleslaw.  We both get plenty to eat. 

The parking lot was packed and the drive in was ridiculous.

Plan B.

At burger joint near by we like to order the different meals.  Chicken sandwich with onion rings and a hamburger with fries.  We split the meals between us. 

Nothing says I love you like sharing food.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I have much to be thankful for this year. 

Dragon is finally working a full time job.
We have insurance other than tricare
Dragon is back in school
My 20 year old is starting her college years.
My oldest has plans to become a teacher
All my kids, my granddaughter and my oldest daughter's boyfriend are under one roof! 
Dragon's PTSD is under control.  He will never be back to where he was before the military but I'll take what I can get.

Happy Thanksgiving fellow bloggers!!!

What are you thankful for?

Enemy # 1


Yes, I said food. 

For breakfast I choose my food.  Oatmeal, grits or cold cereal.  Lunch is usually fruit.  Only dinner really resembles something most people would call a meal and every night I get sick. 

I have kept a food journal to figure out what is causing the problem. 

No luck.  It almost seems random. 

I thought so until I figured out the difference.  I don't eat meat the other two meals of the day.  When I do, I get sick. 

After Thanksgiving and the first of the month I am going to go off meat for a little while.  It is the only way to see if that is what is causing the problem. 

Left on my own I only eat meat once or twice a week.  It sounds like a hardship but it really isn't.  I can do this.

I hope I figure this out.  I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.

A Flirt

Dragon had been dealing with a major plumbing disaster.  A simple $5 5 minute fix turned into a $200 all day fiasco.  Don't ever put CPVC in a house.  Not smart. 

Dragon's poor hands were beat up by the end of the day.  He took off his wedding band and asked me to put it away.  I put it in the safest place for something so important to both of us. 

The next day her went to work.  One of his coworkers started flirting with him.  She didn't take his usual "I'm not interested" signals.  He had to tell her straight up that he is not available.  She assumed that our marriage was in trouble when he didn't have his ring. 

Did she ever get the wrong impression! 

My Dragon was kind and let her know that we are still very much together.  Who knew that someone would take something so small so seriously?  It is important to both of us but the rings can spend some time put away. 

He put his ring back on as soon as he got home from work.  No more confused coworkers we hope!
