hot as anything

No I'm not talking about the imaginary countless number of guys who hit on me while I'm walking dogs. More like the insane heat and humidity lately. I'm pretty sure I don't look as cute as I wish I would, when I'm out in the midday sun, melting.

So, Takeshi has strep throat. He had been feeling awful (again, after just getting over some bug), for the past few days, and then started waking up in the mornings with a temperature of 101-102F. So this past Sunday I drove him to the "mini" clinic in town to see the doctor on staff. She just confirmed to him yesterday that his "bug" indeed has a name, and prescribed meds for 10 days. We're supposed to go see my cousin this coming weekend, so hopefully now that he's on medication, he won't be in danger of spreading it.

Both of us have had another long stretch without any "personal time", again. Sorry to give too much info, but it's something I really struggle with continuously. I don't know exactly how much Takeshi struggles with it, or thinks about sex, but, I would wager that he might not have the same amount of "free" time to even think about it.

Me, on the other hand. It makes me feel like an addict sometimes. But most of the time, it makes me feel not sexy. T_T The same reason behind why the hub keeps getting little colds is the same reason we don't have a sex life. His schedule. The lack of - him.

- I'm going to stop now. I should limit the amount of space per post, that I'll let myself brood about it...Sorry again for the T.M.I.

At this point I don't think we'll be doing anything for the 4th of July (again this weekend, Sunday). I know we'll be seeing my cousin on the 3rd. Hub has been talking with an old culinary friend of his, about getting together and catching up on the 4th. But I don't think we'll be doing anything special. They haven't even THOUGHT of anything to do yet. Men confound me sometimes. Ideally I'd rather have him go off, take the car, and visit with his friend. Hub rarely gets "dude time" in these days. I know we try to spend as much time as we can together on days off, but I want him to see his friends too, sans wifey.

Y'know, normal dude stuff you always hear about.

The trip I took to my college friend's house in Culpeper went nicely. It was great seeing her again, and meeting her 3-month-old son. The first time I've ever held a baby I believe. He was fascinatingly cute to me. I couldn't help but feel little pangs of mummy-longing once and a while. But I am still very much aware that we are not (financially) ready for any little munchkins right now.

I leave with a work-in-progress shot of some art-stuff.

Totally hear you on the mummy-longing, which is weird for me because up until maybe 6 months ago i really never wanted to have kids! Must be because of my new baby nephew, lol.
Your work-in-progress is looking pretty cool. The background scene looks very Japan-esque. :) Can't wait to see it all finished.
