This has been such a busy week for us – it figures that the week we decided to take on a challenge like this our life decides to get more busy. However, now that we’re at the end we are (in addition to being exhausted) even more convinced that there is no reason we can’t have a better sex life. We just had sex for 7 Days Straight despite having an even busier schedule that normal. Why can’t we double or triple our average? Granted it wasn’t always exciting or even good sex this week – Day 2? But we were able to laugh it off and that’s just one of the things I love about our relationship.
Day 7: Vow Renewal.
I feel SO bad because the day was half over and I realize I had forgotten to write down my vows. I had been thinking about the things I wanted to say but today it just slipped my mind. Anyways, after a serious guilt trip from Jake, we set aside a few minutes of alone time to talk about what we had gained from this experience. Where we hoped it would take us and our general feelings about the experience.
Here is what we gathered:
- We had really enjoyed the challenge. We are both fairly competitive people and we just wanted to prove we could do it.
- Finding the alone time for sex is NOT easy but if you get creative there is almost always a way.
- We need breaks in the routine – we need different types of date nights and on dates we need to focus on us.
Our sex life was lacking – not in quality or adventure or romance but in quantity. We both wanted to change that. Of the two of us, I am the one who is always ready and willing. However, due to Jake’s physically demanding job he often comes home exhausted and he just “couldn’t” put forth the effort. I say “couldn’t” because after this challenge we realize it is actually “wouldn’t” and we’re hoping that will change. You know what they say – the more you have it, the more you want it. Hopefully this challenge was the catalyst we needed.
I’m looking forward to seeing how this challenge effects the next 30 days and if it sets the tone for an even better relationship.
