Sex and the Suburban Wife

SarahandChris You know you've been married a long time when you go out on a date with your husband - dinner and a movie - and the conversation at dinner is why the shower has no water pressure if the sprinklers are on and the conversation in the car coming home is about psi and water pressure being too low off of our well. 

What makes this even more ridiculous is that we saw "Sex and the City" the Movie and should have been wanting to get some action when we got home.  We walk out of the theater and the conversation immediately goes to water pressure to our newly installed (my husband installed it) irrigation system.  Yes, it was a girly movie, but I'm beginning to think his mind was on water pressure the entire night. 

SandtheCinYellow Are we just too comfortable with each other that the passion and romance is forgotten altogether after the honeymoon?  Oh, I forgot, we didn't have a honeymoon.  I'm still waitin' for the honeymoon I suppose.  Don't get me wrong, we dearly love each other and there is plenty of lovin' going on after the kids are asleep, but not as much as in the early years of our marriage and a little less with each child.  Fatigue.  Or should I say exhaustion, plays a big part in being too tired for anything but cool sheets and a soft pillow.  I'm so stinkin' tired most of the time that his snoring doesn't even bother me.

I will say this, we are on the same page about most everything.  He is my best friend in addition to everything else.  He is the center of my life and surrounds everything that is important to me.  My life would not be this comfortable, nor would I be sleeping like a rock if I wasn't completely and totally in love with the man lying next to me. 


Water pressure?  PSI?  Showers?  Sex?  I don't care.  If he's happy I'm happy.  He took me to dinner and a movie that I wanted to see and yesterday was his birthday, so this was for him.  Now that's a great guy.
