It’s been one of those days today. You woke up with a headache but still managed to drag yourself to the gym for a thirty minute workout, thinking that maybe you’ll feel better with some exercise-induced endorphins. No such luck; the bathroom needs cleaning, the baby is cranky, the dishes and the kitchen need tending to as well and all you want to do is have a cup of tea to chase away this headache. But the tea is gross, so you settle for a cup of hot chocolate…that’s better.
The headache finally gives and you manage to clean the bathroom, after which you’ve taken up residence on the couch and only get up to use the bathroom and tend to your baby. It’s just that kind of day.
Finally, you and hubby go to bed and you’re so excited to get a good night’s sleep and start fresh in the morning. Then, you feel a warm, strong arm wrap carefully around your waist and the heat of hubby’s skin is against your back. You smile, eyes still closed as you sigh in content. A lovely snuggle is exactly what you need right now…and then his intentions become clear. In the back of your mind, you want groan aloud, “Babe, not tonight. It’s just been one of those days…” but the more he loves you, the more you find yourself relaxing into his actions.
Suddenly you’re not so tired, your earlier headache is long forgotten and all that matters is the fact that after a long day with a cranky baby and not much productivity, the man you love still finds you sexy enough to proposition you with a single touch.
You still get that good night’s sleep and wake up, earlier than usual, refreshed and ready to tackle the day. It was just one of those days.
