resolutions that never were

resolutions that never were

January 4, 2007

“I have decided that my new year resolution is to have sex every day.”

“Wouldn’t I need to make the same resolution?”

“I didn’t say it had to be with you.

“Good luck with that.”


“Okay, my resolution is to get up early every morning and have coffee with you before I leave for work at the ass crack of dawn” (Ed. note: ass crack of dawn might be my own personal interpretation)

“But that won’t jive with my resolution to sleep in every morning. Maybe the person you are having all that sex with will want to have coffee with you.”


“I resolve to eat healthy and exercise…”

“Maybe you should start smaller.”

“… for a whole day!”

    Onces again, and not surpisingly…absolutely hilarious!

    HA Ha! Nice conversation :)
    I came across your blog a few weeks ago, but I hadn’t commented yet. A question: how do you decide which posts go on which blog?

    I have enjoyed reading through your posts.

  3. kate says:

    Love the resolutions!

  4. Meg says:

    a whole day? I’m thinking five minutes. Then, I’m justified in the three beers I plan to have with lunch.

  5. Scout's Honor says:

    So your guy’s getting on the right track. I actually resolved to have sex with my husband weekly (poor, deprived soul) one year. That didn’t happen even the 1st week.

    My resolution now (working on it as we speak), is that I ONLY blog or read blogs while on my treadmill. So far so good. I think it will take a month for the carpal tunnel syndrome to set in.

    But hey! Tracking my progress on my blog, I lost 1.2 lbs in less than 3 days. Is that indicative of a blogging addiction?

  6. Kristi says:

    A great conversation!

  7. meritt says:

    ROTFL…. glad to see you and your dh have conversations much like Coffeehusband and I do. *wink*

  8. Liz in Australia says:

    Those conversations made me laugh far too much.

  9. susie says:

    I say buttcrack of dawn, FWIW.

    I like yours better. :)

  10. Izzy says:

    Sex? Sleeping in? What are these things you speak of?

  11. jody2ms says:

    We do the morning coffee thingie. Not at the ass crack of dawn though. I am usually the last one he wakes up…”will you make me some espresso?”

  12. Jasclo says:

    Hahaha. Love those conversations.

  13. Aileen says:

    My husband, who is in the Navy, resolved to have sex with me 400 times this year. Never mind that there’s oly 365 days in a year and he’ll be out at sea for 9 months. Do you know how many times I’d have to submit in a day just to help him achieve his goal? Can you hear the work whistle?! Why should I be punished for him to achieve his goals?

  14. Carola says:

    I think it is lovely that after all the years you’ve been married your husband still thinks that his best new year resolution is to have sex with you every night. Or have coffee with you every morning. In a way I think it is very romantic…I am guessing many (MANY) other husbands are hoping for exactly the opposite.

  15. cassie-b says:

    And my resolution was about cooking.

    how boring.

  16. Jodi@OC says:

    My husband makes that first one every year. And every year it lasts for about a day. :)

    Great resolutions!

  17. sweethomealagirl says:

    #1 totally sounds like something my DH would say. Totally. ;)

  18. ben says:

    My kids have made a resolution to never allow mom and dad even a moment of “alone” time.


  19. The Wooden Porch says:

    My husband made the same resolution! He’s broken it already though. (the first one, not the coffee one)

  20. Tina says:

    LOL!!! I love it! The sex one sounds like a resolution my husband would love to have.

    I love reading your blogs! :)

  21. Miz Booshay says:

    You are fun-nee!

  22. Debbie says:

    We dont have resolutions. In fact, I think that *was* a resolution once: not to have resolutions. The only one I ever kept….

  23. Edge says:

    I love this. I thought the blond hunk and I were the only ones who had conversations like this. BTW, Tag. You’re it.

  24. Heather says:

    I used to say buttcrack of dawn but it that is the name of my DHs ex-wife so now it has really icky connotations!

  25. Caren says:

    Love it!

  26. Mom101 says:

    I can only hope it was you making that resolution…

  27. Lena says:

    Eerily similar to my husband’s resolutions. Except I think he was shooting for weekly sex. Dream ON.

    Wait, you have another blog? Heading there NOW…

  28. Clare says:

    Hi, I was sent the link to here from another large family Mummy. I have enjoyed reading your posts and can relate so very well to many conversations and situations that happen with your family.

    Thank-you for giving me a laugh today as I read this post, I told my husband and he was curious as to why I laughed as “that’s a great resolution” :)

  29. shaz says:

    haha, that’s hilarious.

    good luck! :P
