I was prepared to write about my last spanking under our “2.0” Contract. As I wrote a “short” intro to share a little bit about things under our newest Contract, that intro became very long, so, I decided to split this in two posts. You spanking aficionados will have to wait one more post for that story.
37 HOURS IN
We signed the new contract the night before last, so I am only about 37 hours into the new contract. I was already prepared before we signed:
My Homemaker Schedule was ready to go, setting which tasks I do on which days and mapping out my days. It was a bit humorous to schedule in masturbation. It takes a bit of the fun out of it to know that at 1:00 today I allotted myself 30 minutes for this. But such “self time” should be part of every homemakers duties, don’t you agree? Not that I expect to have any problems reaching orgasm in thirty minutes (probably will take 5-10), but it would be funny to have to report to Mike that I am behind schedule because I took too long to orgasm. For reasons shared on my last post, I fully expect my masturbation to finish well ahead of schedule. Hee-hee.
My schedule is not ultra rigid and each day has some “slack” in it where it is just “Miscellaneous Chores” so I can catch up if needed without throwing off the schedule. Mike also understands there is always the unexpected things in life we can’t anticipate, especially with a child and even more so with one with special needs. When the unexpected happens I just need to communicate with Mike and get his approval for a revised plan. My schedule is entered into my calendar on my phone and Mike is able to access from his phone.
I already completed some research on various household tasks. Who ever knew that someone has figured out the best way to wash dishes, or fold a particular piece of clothing? Oh wait, I know who knew. Our grandmothers! Ha! For real though, this stuff should be taught in school. Home-Economic classes should be mandatory (for both sexes).
I had my Mantra’s memorized perfectly, and then Mike asked for a last-minute tweak. I agreed as I liked the changes and, of course, I want to please Mike. However, it means I don’t quite have them both memorized. I got the Morning Mantra correct the first two mornings (Yea!!) but I did flub the Evening Mantra last night. Given the last-minute change Mike gave me three days to get the new ones down without Discipline; however, I was still disappointed with myself for not getting it right. I will get it right tonight!
I created some cheat-sheets. I put a reminder sticky note on my steering wheel that says, “Inform Mike?” This reminds me that I need to let him know if I go somewhere other than a scheduled errand. I also taped a similar sticky note to the back of my phone, “Inform and Defer to Mike.” This reminds me to keep Mike informed of schedule changes and check with him before I commit to anything.
We ordered some new clothes and they have already began to arrive. They are fabulous and there is more to come. I posted this before but it is worth saying again — THANK YOU to jadescastle. She suggested these two websites, eshakti.com and modcloth.com for clothing inspiration. I loved the stuff and Mike was very inspired by what he saw – so much so he dramatically increased my shopping budget and helped pick out some things. In addition, we found a site that Mike approved of that had more clothing that was suitable for Kayla. She will have some of the same type of clothes that I have, but Mike wanted her to have some clothes more befitting her age. Thus Mike got Kayla several outfits from Fashion Nova.
I am working on being more “graceful” and Mike has given me time to incorporate this new requirement into my habits. He said he is looking for “progress” not “perfection” as he recognizes the challenge. Walking and sitting is so second nature that even simple changes are hard to remember. This is easily my least favorite of my new requirements. I am not complaining, just staying of all my favorite things, this is my least favorite! I very much appreciate Mike showing some flexibility on this one as it will definitely take some time to master.
Mike wanted to celebrate our new agreement in several ways. He and I will have a night out this Friday. In addition, he is giving Kayla and I almost all of Saturday to have our own “girls day” that lasts all day and evening, just Kayla and I.
Our day includes some “spa time,” complete with massage, manicure, pedicure, hair styled, new make up, and other indulgences. We’ll probably see a movie as well, have a nice lunch and dinner, and plan to pop into a club – something we’ve never done before. Even though Mike set a few rules of behavior for us to follow, it is most definitely going to be a fun day and evening out with Kayla while Mike stays home with J. Mike set a curfew of 12:30 a.m. for us, and he plans to already be asleep in Kayla’s bed. He told us no need to wake him as he is leaving our bed for just Kayla and I to enjoy for the night. . . and enjoy we shall!
Becoming disciplined is not all about being Disciplined! It includes treats as well!
