100 days...

Stop me if you've heard this one... A writer/blogger wrote about he and his wife having sex for 100 continuous days. No excuses, no whining, just do it. Now, he has written a book (to be published sometime this fall) and the movie rights have already been bought. Do you hear an Oprah special coming up?? He swears that it brought their relationship to new heights (excuse the entendre.. but it was meant!) and has saved their marriage. He says it was her idea after hearing about couples that were going to abstain from having sex for 100 days.... Hey, I don't care who came up with the idea - I think it's great. The story on ABC said that couples therapists said that it was more about making a commitment to the relationship that makes it the right thing to do - the sex is the bonus side effect!! Anybody going to go for 150? 200? A year??

Isn't there a rule about the 1st year of a relationship anyways - sex every time you see that person you just have to jump their bones? I think so.. then, you get into the job, the kids (2 legged & 4 legged) and your friends and then you realize you're watching Dateline on a Friday night at 9pm and enjoying the program!!! But, isn't that actually the best part of the relationship... the comfortable way you fall into routines.. the secure warm-fuzzy you get knowing you're going home to your honey... the way you just know that your other half will understand exactly why you found that joke so funny - the one that your boss' 3 yo also found extremely amusing! I love being in love - falling in love is awesome and great and makes your muscles tingle - but staying in love and being in love is what makes your bones hum and your heart pitter-patter. I know - I've fallen off that wagon before. Not this time - this time I know what I have to do and have learned from my mistakes... this time - well, this is the last time.

By the way - in case you're wondering what the joke is...

What do you get when you cross a brown chicken and a brown cow??

(must say the answer out loud...)
