I am ready to write some positives again:
- Even though the cold moved into my sinuses, it isn’t as bad as usual so I think (hope) my plans for the week will stay intact.
- Pigeon has his own Instagram account and is on his way to being an internet super star (lol).
- Kid didn’t get sick this weekend.
- Kid gets to sleep in for the rest of the week because of statewide testing, normal school starts at 1:00. Personally, I think it’s silly to go to school for two hours, but at least this way they get out in May instead of June.
- Sir is back to being kind and caring.
Kid finished a physics project with two friends from class. I’m so proud of them, they built a little home with three rooms that has flooring, wallpaper, and furniture. Each room has it’s own light that works on an independent circuit (that’s the physics part). They did great and they get to sleep in late today!
Sir and I chatted for a little while last night, he was back to the Sir I am used to. He doesn’t like to punish me because a severe punishment could crack a relationship, but sometimes it’s necessary. I can understand that, and I agree that sometimes it is necessary, I just think the silent treatment is too harsh. I’d much rather have a bloody whelp than no contact (I think. It’s never gone that far before). I got a little feisty with him at first, but I settled down as we went along. Before we signed off, he asked me to text him this morning so he knew how I was doing. I did as was asked of me and let him know that even though the cold is now in my nose, I made it to work and I don’t think it will be that bad. (At least, I’m hoping it won’t.)
Sir has a book he wants me to read – it’s called Mindset (Update: I’m halfway through it). I read the free downloaded sample, and I think that I already have somewhat of a growth mindset in that I am always open to learning, I love learning, I know I can grow, growing is essential to life, and although I am intelligent and creative, I can always expand on my talents. But I also have a fixed mindset where I sometimes let little setbacks affect my mood and progress. The book is an easy read if not somewhat boring, but I will give it a shot since Sir wants me to read it. I’ve already learned that my Intelligent Mindset is a growth one and my Personality Mindset is a fixed one. Plus reading will give me something to do while Kid, Mom, and I go university looking this weekend. At the hotel on Sunday night, Mom will be reading and Kid will be on the phone texting, so I will need something to entertain myself for sure. Pigeon won’t be around to do it!
I only have one meeting today and it isn’t until 2 this afternoon. I hate early morning meetings, it’s hard for me to concentrate when the only thing on my mind is coffee. My girlfriend from this past weekend doesn’t like burned coffee so as soon as a pot brews, she turns off the burner. I went in to get myself a cup with no warning of her habit and sipped on a tepid concoction. I like iced coffee a lot, but when you are expecting hot coffee and get cold, yuck! Then a fly landed in it and I decided I was done with the coffee, too much of a hassle after just waking up.
My desk is finally stocked up on cold necessities. Daytime cold meds, lip balm, nasal spray, and most importantly, Puffs Plus with lotion. I can’t have a cold without these things. I’m surprised I made it to work again. I hope today is the worst of it, but I know the Dreaded Cough will linger for three weeks. That’s so annoying.
One of the managers in my office is so full of himself, it’s really quite comical. He yarns tales of his prowess on the golf course, the cricket pitch, and the soccer field. He makes sure it’s clear that he is an exceptional sportsman. When I take a break I get annoyed when he is there because I know I won’t get to just relax and play with my phone, I’ll have to hear about his accomplishments and pretend that I’m impressed.
My new boss is growth oriented which is great, she fully believes in learning and growing into larger things. She plans to push us into new opportunities to further our careers within the company. I think that’s promising, I was really afraid of her to start with, but she has so far been really good. Maybe her military background is a bonus not a curse.
It strikes me that some of you who come here to read about an actual journey through BDSM may wonder why I write about the mundane everyday things that I go through. The reason is actually two-fold. The first being so Sir knows what I’ve been up to, how I’m feeling, and that I am committed to him. The second is to show the mindset of a sub in a D/s relationship when she is with and without her Dom. I like writing, so I hope I have entertained you a little.
