Day Four of the Sexy Challenge ...

If you need to get caught up on the Sexy Challenge, read this first.

OK, you back?

Well, yeah, so today was Day Four.

It's been, interesting, to say the least.

I'm not going to go into details, because obviously, sex is a sacred commitment between two married people, but I will say that Day Four was hard, and I don't mean that in the Hard-Hard way, if you know what I mean. I mean that well, you know, I didn't want to wait till it was too late because I am tired, he is tired, so it's one of those sneak-away-when-he-gets-home things. Day Four was challenging hard.

Our code has always been, "Honey, there's a shelf upstairs in the closet that needs to be fixed," so then he'll come upstairs and help 'fix' the shelf in the closet. (Remember this part because it comes back into play later at the dinner table.)

So then, we're upstairs and we can hear the kids downstairs, and of course, I'm chatting away in the middle of it, telling him how my friend broke her arm AND her big toe on vacation, and how yoga was really good today, and things aren't exactly going the way they SHOULD be going, and then I'm like, "What's the matter, we always talk like this during."

Cuz we DO! We're communicators! We talk and we laugh, and we, well, you know ...

And he brought up a very good point. He said usually we can discuss things because it's not like we're doing it every day and it's much easier for things to "happen" when it's not an everyday occurence. YOU KNOW?

Do you get what I'm getting at?

Or am I not making any sense?

Regardless! Day Four, UNDER MY BELT! YAHOOOOO!

And things are going great, and I even texted him today saying some sexy stuff, and too bad he doesn't know how to text back because I'm sure he would have had the foreplay texting right back at me.

Then afterward, we went downstairs where I had a lovely dinner prepared. Don't EVEN ask what it was. OK, I'll tell you. Stouffer's Chicken Enchilladas.

At dinner, we always play a family game: What was the best part of your day. So we shared that. But we said we couldn't say anything that had to do with our family members (cuz someone ALWAYS says, "Right now is the best part of my day).

I said my best part of the day was that I got a copy of Wally Lamb's The Hour I First Believed in the mail today to review on Betty's Lit Lounge, and I'm so psyched. It's huge though--over 700 pages.

Mr. Manic said the best part of his day was fixing the shelf upstairs!

Then Ajers said next we had to say what was the WORST part of our day. Mr. Manic said, "Well, the worst part of my day was that when I first started to fix the shelf upstairs it was pretty hard to do. The nuts weren't fitting right and it was pretty tight, but then I got them screwed in just right."



How can you NOT love that man!?!?!?!?

And so yes, Day Four. The Sexy Challenge. And I love him and am ready for Day Five.

And I was IMing Dawn from Yuba City who I do not think has a blog, and we decided that I will hold a contest and give away a SEXY CD that I will burn for a winner, or two or three right here on this Manic Mommy blog. But you have to promise to want to have sex. OK! With your boyfriend, spouse, partner or lover, OK? And maybe not seven days in a row, but at least one time.

I promise it will be a sexy CD with awesome music you will want to ruffle up some blankets while listening to it. So, in order to win, just leave a comment telling me a funny/sexy/unique story about a strange place you may have done it. Yeah, that's what I want to know.

And no MOM, you cannot leave a comment!

Mr. Manic is not only a great guy, he's got a great sense of humor!

Michelle said...

Oh you're so lucky your kids don't read your blog. and I LOVE his comment. LOVE it.

Hmmm. Strange place. On a couch in my hs bf's grandparents house under the blanket while his sister and two brothers were sitting in front of us watching a movie? Does that count? Ohhhh the good old days!

morninglight mama said...

How did you not spit chicken enchiladas straight across the room in laughter from that comment?!

(And I am TOTALLY jealous about the book-- I'm waiting for our county library system to get their copies so I can get one quick. WL is my absolute favorite author-- I even got to speak to him for a few minutes a couple years ago at the National Book Festival. He's a really personable guy and he's from the area of CT where I grew up!)

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Morning--OK, now I am mad because Wally Lamb was at our local independent book store LAST night and I had to make the decision: Sex or Wally Lamb? Wally Lamb or Sex? Hmmm. We all know what I chose. Damn, I really wish I would have done it quicker and made it over to his book signing. NOW I am really mad at myself. I could have had the best of both worlds!

GoodLilHunkyGirl said...

Here is my funny story:

I always trot this one out when other people are talking about how nice it was when they lost their virginity, and I always win for the worst story!

Picture it: December 30th. Backseat of a minivan. A dusty-blue 1990 minivan (in 2001). In a parking lot. In a PONDEROSA STEAKHOUSE parking lot. The Ponderosa Steakhouse was open and functioning at the time.

THAT is where I lost my virginity.

We're not together anymore.

Moll said...

You should totally check out that article in the NY TImes a couple months back about a couple decided to have sex for 100 days straight and other who decided to do it for a year. You would love it.

Congrats on Day 4.

I mean..make sure it has Inna-Gadda-Davita on it..like the one that is 20+ minutes long..yeah. that one..

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

March--Three minutes long! You mean you're gonna DO IT TWICE!!!!

MaBunny said...

ROFLMAO!!! and I live not tooo far from Grapevine, Tx. Maybe I could persuade my hubby to be up for the challenge. Glad you are enjoying it! Gotta love Mr Manics quick thinking, lol

Jenna said...

LOL. My funny spot?

Under the bridge of a bike path. That was hard to explain why clothes were dirty when we got back to our friends...and who knew 5 years later we'd be married!

MaBunny said...

Tag Manic, your it!

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

MaBunny, I love you, I love you, I love you, but 1) I can't find your blog anymore, 2) I - don't kill me - don't really like doing tags all that much -- please don't kill me, and 3) here's the BEST excuse ... I'm TOO BUSY HAVING SEX to do the tags! I do love you though!!! AND WHERE THE HECK IS YOUR BLOG THESE DAYS!?!?!?!

Amanda said...

Disabled loo at my best friends wedding. That's all the detail your getting, except of course it was with Hot hubs!

AutoSysGene said...

OMG, I would have fallen off my chair laughing at dinner.

Mr Manic has an awesome sense of humor. I take it if he can't text he can't read your blog...probably a good thing? ;)

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

He never reads my blog but I bet all his coworkers do!

Trish Ryan said...

That is the best story of dinnertime Best/Worst I've ever heard! Yay Mr. Manic--way to persevere :)

Kirsten said...

THat's an aswesome story, first of all.

strange places ... i have a few. one involving my college boyfriend, who i was in a long-distance relationship to start with, and then we were driving across the country with my parents and brothers to my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary, in my parents van, and we hadn't seen each other in several weeks, and were ... well missing each other after several weeks of not seeing each other, and we in the way back of the van. with a blanket over out laps -- pleasuring each other, if you will. with my brothers asleep in the seats directly in front of us, and dad driving, with my mom sitting next to him.

I can't believe I'm typing this and my hubby would kill me if he knew, but when we lived in our old house we had a small fenced in back yard. We'd had a few cocktails and I was like "let's go outside." It was late and night and I was feeling frisky. So we went onto this hammock that we had (remember the word had). He's 6.2 and I'm 5.1 and needless to say the hammock didn't hold. In the middle of our 'play time' the hammock broke and he crashed on top of me knocking the air out of me. It was hilarious. So we finished up in the kids playhouse that was right by it, and I think it laughed the whole time.

See, Manic...posts like this one are why I do not have a blog! I could never be as funny and clever as you!

As for the weird place--it would have to be our bathroom (not where the toilet is) but where the sinks are. This is a semi-regular location because the door locks and the kids think we are in the shower.

BTW, must confess that I have already fallen off the wagon in the sex challenge. Last night was crazy, and I fell asleep before he even came to bed. Tonight, however, I will try to re-enter (hee hee) the race. Maybe even twice to make up for last night!

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

I am afraid that tonight we are going to lose the challenge. Somebody has had a difficult day at work and no amount of seduction is going to win that person over I do not think. We shall see though.

Anonymous said...

Oh Manic! Please win Mr. Manic over 2nite!!! (can you tell that I am sooooo living vicariously through you!) Start with teaching him how to text.... this way you can get him "ready" BEFORE he comes home from work next time... he he

Good Luck... you still have a few more hours!

oh yeah - my strange place. A Sauna. Thought I was going to die!


Mary said...

Great challenge! We're trying to regain our virginity. We're really doing great with that. ;)

Picture this: the husband and I were not yet married. At the time the man was hornier than a horn toad and chased me around the bed, the house, the kitchen table, and hell, even the toilet. Once a day was a given, twice a day was a probable.

So you can imagine my surprise when we were on vacation in Miami, just the two of us, walking down a dark beach, hand in hand, looking at the stars, when I said, "Sweetie, I WANT YOU! RIGHT HERE!!!" and he looked at me as if I'd grown a second head. "uh, no!"

"WHY? Let's rip off our clothes and do it right here in the sand - the wind, the waves, the stars - I feel like a WILD woman!"

In a tremulous voice he says, "don't think so... might get dirty!"


Then he bends down and whispers close to my ear, "Look there are people way over there - they might see us. What if a cop comes along and spots us?! I'll get arrested or something!"

Being the shy woman I am, I roll my eyes, grab his shoulders, trip him up behind some tropical trees and bushes so he falls on his fanny and have my way with him - fighting off all his arguments - right there in Miami. It was wonderful!

No one came and arrested us, although still to this day I think the group of people sitting a distance away knew what was going on and were laughing. We laughed all the way back to the hotel.

OH - and just so you know - I LAUGH at your 7 days - mu ha ha ha ha ha ha! We've done it 14 days in a row with no challenge. I think I have that disease that 40 year olds get where they really love sex and want it all the time. Narcolepsy? uh.. Hydrofluxy? uh..what is it called! Microphobia? Oh jeesh! I can't remember! "40-year-old-that-loves-sex-itis" There. That works.

MaNiC MoMMy™ said...

Shawna, been there, done that. Except we were on the beach in Grand Cayman.

Then we did it in the pool.

; )

James Cooney said...

Manic, how the hell am I supposed to get people to take my *sexy* poll on color preference for their pen when you're over here talking about sex marathons? Have mercy on the rest of us bloggers!

For those of you single and unable to participate in the Sexy Challenge, why not weigh in on this equally sexy question:

Blue Pens? Or Black Pens? Take my poll!

Jess Riley said...

Oh my, I shouldn't have read that at work...now I have some 'splainin to do about why I'm laughing so hard.

mamashine said...

Okay, that is the best thing I have read all day!

Let's see... in our storage unit?

Or how about the almost-time on the slide at the elementary school when we were busted by the police making rounds, and he pulled me aside and wanted to make sure I wasn't there against my will and it was okay with me that I was about to get nailed on the slide. I thought that was very nice of him, but wow such a buzzkill. :)

xxxx said...

How about writing a post about DAY FIVE???? HA HA HA HA HA.

BOOKSTORE!! My bf and I were in a cool used bookstore that had a basement and no one was down there at the time. Weirdest part - there was a full length mirror leaning against one of the shelves so we both had a nice view ;)

There were a few other public/outdoor times but that is my favorite!

Unknown said...

Oh my God you are so freaking funny! I was laughing so hard I was coughing, because my broncitis is hanging on like a kangaroo baby!

Hmm, here is a funny story, that wasn't funny AT ALL at the time. my husband and I snuck off to the bedroom to "fix a shelf". I was on the bed, naked of course, laying on the edge and he had on of my feet in each hand standing up. He was going at it and we THOUGHT the door was locked, but my then 11 year old busted through the door. She screamed, I screamed, yanked my feet away, and kicked my husband HARD right in the jaw. I was so humiliated I wouldn't come out of the room for an hour!
