J will be spending time at my parents house, our recent-grad, T2, will have already moved out by then, thus we are temporarily empty-nesters. When the kids are away, the adults shall play! Um, well, play even more than we already do, we just won’t have to be stealthy about it.
I went into last year’s immersion invigorated and excited. This year? Just not feeling as excited. I think in some ways I am “explored out.” There isn’t really anything new I am yearning to explore. However, I still look forward to it, just not with the same amount of gusto. I love the intense submission of it all and there are some activities I look forward to repeating.
I shared this with Mike and he got all giddy and said, “Then I will take it as a challenge to find some new and interesting things for you.” He reminded me that part of our goal of each immersion is to explore new sensations and experiences to help us all identify and separate what is pleasurable versus tolerable – as well as what is tolerable versus what is intolerable.
We make it fun and “brand” each immersion with a theme, (last year’s was Entering the Forbidden Zone). Prompted by my less than stellar enthusiasm, Mike chose the theme this year of “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!” I have to admit, it did raise my enthusiasm to have to wait and see what all Mike has in store for Kayla and I.
Kayla is very excited – much more than I am. She really loved last years Immersion and still talks a lot about it. She would prefer more role-playing, age play/ABDL, and humiliation stuff, but that is difficult to do regularly with a child in the house so Immersion is a great time to explore those things. Mike said we will revisit some of the things we did last year, but he will have some new experiences for us all.
He once again rented the same place we stayed at last year. Funny, but one of the things that made that place so fun was that it was secluded and we could run around naked outside. That was such a novelty a year ago and now is like, “but of course!” Anytime we have the opportunity, naked will be a “go to” state. Which, speaking of nudism, leads me to something else to share – – –
After our vacation, Mike has gone “all in” on adopting nudity. He really loves it and appreciates the positive influence it has on J’s behavior. Mike said it is inconvenient to have to put something on if he needs to go get something from the tool shed, or if any of us simply want to be outdoors in our back yard. As a result, Mike tasked me with talking to my neighbors and get their permission for us to be naked in our backyard.
Our yard is pretty well shielded from the neighbors, but there are spots viewable from THREE different neighbors. Thankfully large trees and the slope of the land hide us from more views. One of our neighbors is John and Donna, so no problem there.
That leaves TWO other houses with views into our backyard. Luckily, I know one of these neighbors pretty well and feel comfortable talking to them about this – however, I don’t know the other one real well – and she has the biggest view into our yard. I have probably talked to her four or five times in 15 years. Anyway, that will be an awkward conversation.
I’ll let you know how these talks go. Mike gave me to the end of the week to talk to them. While one of these conversations will be uncomfortable, I think it is wonderful that Mike has embraced this. It is very un-Mike like. I think this vulnerability thing is rubbing off on him!
