Aloha Friday! Valentine’s Edition: Sex or A Nap?

Eight years ago, my man asked me to marry him

Happy Aloha Friday Valentine’s Edition!

Sunday is Valentine’s Day and marks the eight year anniversary of my engagement to my high school sweetheart.  I was 24, he was 25. We lived in North County San Diego in the beach town of Encinitas. I worked in PR, he was chasing his entrepreneurial tail (some things never change) and we were in love. We met, when I was 14 and he was 16, in Algebra class.


Today’s question for you…

If you had one free hour

(kids were sleeping or away)

Would you rather…

Have SEX


Take a NAP?

It’ll tell ya, for me, it’s a tough call. Right about now I’d choose the nap. Sorry hubby. That’s what happens after 8 years, two kids, and a puppy.

Now it’s your turn! Spill it!

  2. After 25 yrs and 10 children – guess it’s obvious!! Both – sex than nap:)

  3. Depends on the hour… If were talking about this week… nap… Husband is in Miami all week, and it’s hard playing both parents at the same time

  7. I’m always WAY better in bed when well rested.
    So I think my husband should BEG me to take a naps, pull down the covers, quiet the kids, and fluff my pillow a bit. He does that, and he’d have much a better chance at getting to fluff my pillows later.

  8. Now that the kids are older, I’d go for more xxx between the sheets.

    Back in the day, though, I woulda opted for more zzz in bed.

    In fact, I wrote a poem about it:

    Great survey post.

    Sweet dreams!
