That is not what we were saying last night as we were scrambling to get 'decent' to unlock the door for our daughter who came home two hours early..... AND forgot the 10 minute text rule!!!!!
The ten minute text rule to tell us that she will be home in 10 minutes...THAT rule, that gives us time to ....well..(depending on what is going on)...get organized...
It was rather a nice way for The Silence to make sure that I was not going into that distancing place.... So much nicer than a spanking (as I had just had one for telling him 'He was a hopeless cause' and for six things I said the night before)
I was angry when he got home..with him. How can someone be so
Swearing is a no no. It is one of the rules. (Just one of the rules that I seem to break daily. Though 'Being pi***d off, has changed rather quickly to brassed off, so some improvement)
You just swore
Oh shit I did
Oh crap (burying my head in the pillow)
And again (this is why I call him The Silence, he is a man of few words)
HE thought it was hilarious! I doubt if I will today though. Could be time spent doing extra cleaning :(
So starting tonight, we have a full weekend. No time for discipline (not that it will be needed) and very little time alone until Tuesday. I have come to dislike these busy times, where we don't get time together alone to be able to talk or deal with things.
Speaking of dealing with things...
From the 16 November for two weeks we are away...starting with a 15 hour flight..together, with our daughter. I hate flying. I get grumpy. There is nowhere to go, and nothing to do.
I think I am going to need that duct tape...
Then, when we arrive, we are sharing a room with our daughter. 24/7 for two weeks. Plus, her and I both get PMT...makes for an interesting household when at home, let alone sharing a hotel room.....
Don't get me wrong...I love our daughter dearly...but two whole weeks, with a 17 year old, both with PMT ....
The country we are going too, is not a country where you can send your daughter out to browse the streets by herself.
There will be no internet either. So blogging will not be happening for those two weeks :( not until the 1st December)
Now this is where I need your help...
How do you do DD when in another country, with your daughter in the same room 24/7 for two weeks??????????
I guess I could try to be the perfect wife.... (yeah, that would be the right answer, but I think hell will freeze over before then)...whoops, sorry Silence.....
The day we leave is an emotional one for all of us, as it is Graduation Day. The last day EVER of school. Our baby, our last child, is finishing school...THANK GOODNESS!!! No seriously, the years have gone by so fast. It only seemed like yesterday, that I was holding her in my arms and singing her to sleep...(wipes eyes, sniff, sniff)
Anyway, back to the two weeks away...
I now feel 'off balance' if things are not dealt with. Which puts me more and more out of sorts, which builds into a melt down. (how did this start happening?)
The likelihood of us ever being alone is really slim, as it is partly a volunteer trip to help out in some schools etc.
Well anyway, any advice would be appreciated, as I think as it is getting closer, I am more and more 'off balance' trying to figure it all out.
The Silence wants to take 'Mr Glue' (A 40 to 50cm glue stick that is quiet..ish that he has fallen in love with using when the daughter is at home and we need a 'quiet' spanking. One has to keep reminding him though, that while Mr Glue is quiet..the wife of the Silence, is potentially not)
And I would like to thank the person whose blog he got that idea from about the glue sticks......
Back to Mr Glue....
Can you imagine at customs trying to explain why you have a glue stick in your suitcase....well actually two, joined together (because they were not long enough)? Customs people don't like odd things in suitcases...
Yes sir, I packed my own suitcase
And what is this
A glue stick
Seems rather an odd thing to be bringing along with you
Well, that depends on how well your wife behaves
Beg your pardon?
My wife..she misbehaves (and said wife standing next to him looking angelic)
Well, um, yes, ok sir carry on...
So, any advice would be appreciated on how to deal with DD while away for two weeks and sharing a room. It could end up being a few days of spanking when we get home..or loads and loads of corner time!
May your day be blessed and spank free :)
