Sex, sick, and a house…

Yesterday Yumiko was lamenting that she couldn’t have sex whenever she wanted (though I disagree as she’s very popular when we’re out).  She could probably wear a sign that said “SEX?” and get multiple offers.  Unfortunately, I cannot have sex whenever I want either which is maybe worse because I’m married and she’s not.  Back when Demande and I were speaking he said he had an agreement with his ex-wife that allowed him to sleep with whomever he wanted to because she wasn’t interested in sex.  I don’t know if I believe that though.  These days I tend to not believe a good portion of what Demande says.  Don’t ask me why though.  It’s probably because he says he wants to be my friend and then acts like an ass.  Anyway, sometimes I wish I had such an agreement, but I think that’s just called being single.

KC is not feeling well today.  He had a vaccine this weekend, and I read that it’s normal for wee ones to not feel 100% after a vaccine.  His little body has to work extra hard especially since he got 3 vaccines in one shot.  Poor bub.  I hope he’s doing better tomorrow.  He’s been sleeping all day and doesn’t have much of an appetite.  I read that I should just let him rest, so he’s in his house on his bed away from Small Lady.  She tried to play with him earlier and got a little rough.  He didn’t want any of that, so they’ve been separated all day.  My poor baby.

Mamoru had a big test this morning.  He said he didn’t do well despite studying most of Saturday (as well as throughout the week).  He tried to study for a bit on Sunday but took way too many naps instead.  We tried to talk about buying a house.  I thought it would be a good idea because if (when) he is transferred again, I’ll have to leave this apartment.  I told him I didn’t want to go any place dumb like Sapporo or Okinawa (both realistic places he could be transferred).  I actually don’t want to go anywhere else ever again.  I’ve already been through the hell of moving (to a brand new city) once.  I don’t want to do it again.  He says he can’t afford a house.  This is a lie.  Single with a shitty paying job I could afford a house in America.  He has a tremendously good paying job and excellent credit.  Credit card companies try to throw credit at him constantly.  Then he said he doesn’t want a loan.  Um what?  Then he said he wants to live in America (remember it was Portugal last time) .  I reminded him he promised me children before we even think about going anywhere.  He’s constantly thinking about running away from Japan.  I don’t think he understands that I chose Japan.  I ran away to Japan.  I love this country despite my hardships.  I don’t want to leave like he does.  Sigh.  Marriage.

I guess that’s it.  It’s been a somewhat lazy day though I made a soup and a chutney today, and did more dishes than I thought we had in the house.  Now I’m just lying around watching TV.  Mental health is so-so.  Not terribly bad, but not good either.  I hope you’re fine.  Be well.
