Challenge Myself: Day #50 Intimacy and Relationships

Today is Day #50 of our Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today is about intimacy in our relationship.

I for one know that when you have a child who is sick with this addiction it is often hard to make couple time.

It's not that we don't want to, it's that we get so consumed by the whole wanting to control it, wanting to fix it that we sometimes forget to take a couple break.

The book says,

Feeling flirtatious and sexy? Are you ready for a romantic tryst? Not yet finished with the glass of wine?

Slip a note under his or her glass. Invite him or her to join you for some fun.

Don't make it seems as if he or she is expected to perform. Instead, tease, tantalize and titillate. For instance, let the strap of your black dress slide off your shoulder.

Lean forward and engage the others attention. Seduce.

Help him or her believe that in the moment, he or she is the only person in the world for you.

Hold hands. Let your mutual arousal build and set the pace for everything else.

Who needs another glass of wine? Enjoy!

As I typed todays challenge it reminded me of this summer. The hubby and I had so many plans that we've had to put on hold. It's not really a had to put on hold, I don't really know how it ended up that our plans were cancelled, but it had to do with adult children and addiction.

We haven't had a real vacation in over five years or six years now. We had made plans for this year because we are celebrating our thirty fifth anniversary. Somehow, our savings is now gone.

Just For Today: I will make time for togetherness with the hubby.
