Lately, my thoughts during sex are far from dirty--unless you count me worrying about getting the laundry done.
Momlogic's Momstrosity: For some inexplicable reason, my husband only gets the idea to have sex at the end of our respective 16-hour days--after we've both worked, suffered through our commutes, picked up our child from daycare, made dinner, gave the kid a bath, read a story, did the bedtime routine and finished the dishes.
By the time we're both comfortably settled in bed, I'm like a zombie teetering between comatose and dead.
THEN, AND ONLY THEN, DOES MY HUSBAND REACH FOR ME ACROSS THE BED.
The following are my thoughts during our sweet, sweet lovemaking--or more accurately as we "do it." (I've labeled exactly where we are in "the act" so you can follow along!)
SEX ACT STATUS: The rollover to my side of the bed
Oh, dear God, maybe he'll change his mind.
SEX ACT STATUS: Foreplay
I guess not. It looks like he's going to follow through. Should I tell him I'm too tired? No, I did that last time, I don't want to hurt his feelings.
The mortgage is due tomorrow.
I hate our popcorn ceiling, maybe if we at least had molding it would look okay...
SEX ACT STATUS: Penetration
Am I going to have enough time to take a shower in the morning?
I should get the kid a new shape-sorter--I'm never going to find those missing triangles.
I just washed these sheets, I'm not sure if we have a clean set. Maybe in the dryer...
If I don't blow out my hair in the morning I might have time to take a shower.
I like cheese.
SEX ACT STATUS: Nearing orgasm
Can the kid hear us?
I hope she's not going to wake up crying for milk...wait, do we have enough milk for tomorrow?
Sh*t, I forget to pick some up on the way home. I keep forgetting things--and I HAVE to go to Target tomorrow. She's grown out of most of her pants. Maybe it's time for her to move to the 18-24 months. I can't figure out what fits her and what doesn't--I've got to weed though her clothes and sort out the ones she's grown out of. You can't really trust the sizes. Technically, you'd think I could just get rid of the 12-18 months entirely--but sizes run differently in different brands...
Whoops, better make a few noises so he thinks I'm into this.
SEX ACT STATUS: The big finish
After sex, my dear husband always asks how it was for me. I love him, so I always tell him it was great. Honestly, sometimes the greatest part of it is I can finally get some sleep.
