All in all we have had a wonderful weekend. We ended up with 19 people at our house for a cook out for the Man's birthday. It was awesome. I love to entertain. I also get spun up when things don't go just right. I feel like it's a poor reflection on me.
Well, everyone had a wonderful time. The grill didn't work out quite like planned, but the Man fixed it. Which brings me to the Magic words... Ya know "THOSE" words. The ones that say, stop now, cease desist, knock it off.. You get the idea.
I have come to realize when I hear the words, "Alright, Little Girl" in just that tone, It's time to STOP. He is becoming more confident in his role, and I am in mine. I am able to relax, most of the time. There are still times when only a spanking will do. Only time with my bottom in the air and the hand or paddle being applied resets my emotions, releases the nerves and stress.
He has also figured out other things. he insists that I rest. He takes time to work out with me in the pool and makes sure that I just relax. He is coming to understand how much the house means to me and he is working to make sure things don't fall apart while he's home.
We don't always get it right. DD doesn't make life all better, but it does make it easier to get through things. We still have moments. I have been rude to him and apologized immediately. I sometimes wish he would hold me accountable for those times. They are fewer and further between, but still something I struggle with.
He struggles with ADD, and TTWD has had huge benefits for him. He holds himself to a much higher standard and works to be a man I can respect. On an amusing note, he threatened to spank me in public the other day. Not that he would in public, but mentioned.. I said, "WE are in public." He said, "Nobody knows you here, and nobdy heard it but you, so STRAIGHTEN up!!" I blushed, chuckled, and STRAIGHTENED UP. So, do any of the rest of you have something besides The Look that tells you that you are headed down the path of a red tush?
