Buckaroo has been working long hours…like REALLY long hours since returning to a traditional kitchen. He usually works about 12 hours at a time depending on what’s going on. When he gets home, I am either in the middle of my second dream or too tired to do anything more than say hello. The afternoons are usually a good time for both of us to exercise our freedom to be spontaneous because he’s got to sleep in a little, the baby is napping, and the older kids aren’t home from school yet.
I wish I could use that “I’m tired” from working at the house all day, or that “the kids have been too much I’m not in the mood” excuse. Friends. That man doesn’t want to hear any of that. He works just as hard if not harder, and when he goes to sticking his hands in the cookie jar, honey those cookies better be ready! 😉 There’s a thin line between teddy bears and grizzly bears in this house. So I try to keep him happy! He goes back to work so light on his feet they call him “Twinkle Toes”. Those afternoons when I know it’s going down I make a little “turn up” tea in the morning, by lunch time, it’s ready. I guess you would compare it to a Winter Sangria. It’s loaded with aphrodisiacs and sure to put a little spice in your winter sex life!
When I pair that tea with one of my K-Y® Liquibeads, it’s a winter wonderland in Atlanta! They come with an easy to use applicator and you just pop it in the “cookie jar” every few days and those cookies will stay ready honey! I just say “Hey babe, are we on for TEA AND CRUMPETS?” and he knows it’s on! 😉 I love them because I don’t have to “warm up” the light is always green for whenever we want to share an intimate moment, because with three children and limited time, you have to be creative!
They don’t have a crazy smell or anything; they mimic the natural moisture that you already produce. If you are pregnant, or nursing, you should consult with a doctor before using. Pick them up at Walmart in the health and beauty aisle. That’s where I got mine. I’ll even share a coupon for you to use for $1.00 off from coupons.com, so you can “turn up”!
