Just Another Recovering Person

It’s 6:11 a.m. and I am up. Don’t ask why, I just am. Well you can ask why but all it will do is lead to a rant about resentment’s, sex, and bad mexican food not necessarily in that order…..

Being 42 I have learned a little about sex and relationships and this is what I know…Sex is overrated. Guys spend too much time thinking, talking and plotting about sex. Society uses sex to sell every major product we consume. Teenagers are worried about the mysteries of sex and losing their virginity at younger and younger ages. As for me, I’m just sitting here at 6:11 a.m. writing about it.

My wife got a job. She is working for a local construction company doing their accounting. She said the guy reminds her of her last boss. Looks like him, talks like him, acts like him. Should be interesting.

The kids started school this week. They get on the bus at 7 a.m. which means it is wake up time here of around 6 a.m., which means I am up at 5:30…This may explain why I am up at 6:11.

Work continues to go ok. I went to a meeting on Thursday which consisted of 3 people including myself. I’m past the part of meetings here being extremely small, the thing that is getting me is the lack of experience or talking about ‘phases’ in recovery. I get resentful that I have the most clean time in a room and am looked at to lead the conversations on things. I guess I could be just lazy and want to hide in meetings or have solutions provided for me. Maybe I am spoiled because I came from a larger area where this happens.

At any rate…there is really not much going on. My daughter has made no mention of the incident from a couple of weeks ago which kind of leads me to believe nothing improper happened.

I hope you are all doing well, I am off to read posts.

Take Care….Bob D.

    It’s SO nice to be back on your blog. We also have the kids back in school here and even though I teach yoga in 100 degree room, this summer heat is killing me. I am also back in school Still holding up straight A’s and planning to keep it that way. I’m going to catch up on your blog now, but I just have to add that it’s misleading to title your blog what you did and then not explain what happened 😉 Inquiring minds want to know.
    As for your statement about sex being overrated. I really have no idea what you mean. Sex is if anything underated and not done enough! I agree a one night stand with a stranger is overrated, but marial sex is underated and the best sex I have ever had. Though men and women have completely different sexual energies and get off in different ways, the longer you are with one partner the more time you both have to become skilled at finding out each other’s secret turnons and unlock the real passion and fire that neither or you knew you had. Sometimes David and I need to work on our sexual relationship when life gets in the way and we stop giving it the focus and nurturing that it needs, but once we are back on track I see how sex is so vital between two people. It is incrediblity vulnerable to be with one partner over the years and trust yourself with them. Some maqwrried couples never even learn how to talk to each other about sex and what they need and like. I read recently that 50% of married couples sleep in seperate beds. In my opinion, if we all put as much attention on enjoying our partner and our own bodies as we put on money, work and consumerism the planet would have better sleep, less depression and lower stress.
    Whoa… I typed a lot. Sorry Bob. Sex is an issue near and dear to my heart.
