A good friend said to me this morning when I asked them how they were:
'Fine, but I am not the one up boot camp river with 2 new paddles'
Which made me laugh as one new paddle is longer than the other..which means I would be paddling in circles!
To which the reply was:
'well if I was in the boat with you we'd be moving! because I would require the shorter paddle
So good to have such great supportive friends in blog land :)
So...Day one ended with a bedroom spanking for being sassy sassy. Not quite what I had in mind when we finally went to bed :(
We both survived day one, with each of us learning more about each other. Each day there are four compulsory homework assignments that deal with different issues. It is a great way to communicate.
Our first assignment was going over the rules on day one. The Silence decided that we would do it like a mind map. So much better than just reading from a list. It put things in more perspective when making a 'tree' of the rules and how quite a few of the rules actually relate to each other.
Basically, where possible we have been doing the assignments this way, instead of just writing a page together. It is more fun to do them like this, than sitting down and writing page each on the when, why, how.
The Silence starts off great in the morning, and though he is getting
stubborn better at picking things up, seems to slacken off towards the afternoon. Of course I take advantage point this out to him.....eventually.
We have decided to get a hobby that we can do together. So far we have come up with building a sports car...on the cheap, and not much else.
So if anyone has any ideas on what sort of hobbies wife and Hoh can do together, I would appreciate them.
(Preferably ones that will not bring on frustration, sassy-ness, disrespectful-ness, ..well, you know the list)
He did come up with this idea:
The first day I cried...a lot. I cannot believe one can have so many tears inside. Not just because of the compulsory spankings, but because of the loss of control, not being able to control anything, in any way at all.
And I don't cry....ever! Well, I have cried a little bit since starting ttwd...stupid emotions
It was not a good feeling, knowing that someone else was in control.
Yesterday (day two) I took back some of that control. I did not cry..oh, a few tears here and there, but other than that, nothing. My mantra, if that is what you want to call it was 'don't cry, don't cry, you are not going to cry'
Why? I hear you ask.
No idea, other than I think it was a desperate attempt at controlling something tangible. I have no idea how today (day three) is going to go. And no idea whether The Silence will decide to have a day four/five.
Today, if all goes well could be the last day of BC.
(I just had a look at a preview of this post, it is coming up all screwy, no idea why though. Hoping that it posts properly)
