New Year

This is the last day in a very crummy year. I hope to never have another year like this (I can hope). Today Master and I are sitting around watching a few marathons on TV. We don’t have anything planned. Maybe some board games later. My back is still killing me so I’m not sure energetic sex will work but I’m tempted to try.

I could say that I’m doing to do the whole lose weight and eat better thing. Who knows what goals I’m really going to set.

Master just ordered me to lay down for a nap, I guess I’ll be finishing this later.

Plans

I woke up this morning with the whole plan of getting some more organization of the kitchen done so that I enter the New Year with a clean kitchen. I wanted to get a lot of the house cleaned in fact.

My cramps have settled into my lower back, which if you recall I’ve had problems with recently anyway. So I’ve felt so freaking bad all day. We got a little paycheck, and I did do some grocery shopping so at least I got that done. Other than that I’ve been knitting all day.

I’m working on a baby blanket for my sister’s baby due next month. I know I’ve said that before. I’ve added it to my projects on Ravelry.com. I’ll be taking a picture of it when it’s all done.  I’ve also got a few dishcloths made too. I’ve been pondering putting things like this up for sale. Master is a bit negative about it. I’ve thought about putting a lot of things up for sale and never gotten around to it. Remember my idea to have a kinky craft store? Yeah, never happened. I could just list these things on a simple website and see, who knows. I guess it all depends on how much knitting I plan to do.

I’ve added a new section to the blog here. It’s my Homecare Journal. It’s a start anyway. I’ve got my cleaning routines, some recipes and other tips. I’m hoping to keep everything I find as useful for my domestic growth will go there.

Master and I talked last night while I was relaxing before falling asleep. I asked him how I was doing since the blow up a few weeks ago. He said that I’ve done well. It’s good news for me. My domestics are getting better, my sexual service is going well and while sometimes I still look like I don’t want to do something he said I’m complaining less.

I’m digging out Miss Abernathy again. I know I keep saying it. I really am going to start doing the lessons again. I feel like it can help me now that I’m feeling better about myself.

I also have plans for eating right and exercising into the New Year. I’d like to lose over 50 lbs this year. I also need to revise my goals for next year and see how far I get with those as well.

Warmth This Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone. I hope that today was everything you thought it could be.

Today has been so wonderful. It’s been full of quiet moments, good food and play.

This morning I got up and set to work on my first loaf of bread. It turned out pretty good for a first try. It was a little dry so I will compensate next time and remember the carry over cooking. Here’s what the loaf looked like right out of the oven.

The day was spent just watching tv and enjoying each others company. We had already opened presents so there wasn’t any of that today.

But tonight, oh tonight was fantastic. We got the hot wax pots out and Master dripped and coated and poured me into oblivion. It was so wonderful that I’m still floating because of it.I forgot how much I love wax play and being that it’s so messy I understand why we don’t pull it out very often, but OMG it was great.

We hadn’t played like this in months and it was wonderful. I hope we can do it again soon.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately on things I want to learn to improve my tasks around the house. I’m going to venture into bread making hopefully for the first time tomorrow. I’ve already begun to make from scratch a few of the things we buy a lot of and hope to increase that. Some of the things I already make are:

  • flour tortillas – Homesick Texan has the recipe I use, I shallow fry mine instead of dry cook them. My grandma makes them that way and I love them
  • hot cocoa mix – I use Alton Brown’s recipe
  • taco seasoning – recipe I use from All Recipes. Make a large batch and store it in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
  • bread crumbs
  • egg noodles – I love this recipe. The noodles can be made ahead, dried and stored or frozen!

After the first of the year I hope to add to that list:

I’m also learning more with the knitting I’ve been doing. Right now I’ve reserved myself to dishcloths (or afghan squares) of different stitch patterns. Last night I learned faire isle knitting, which is one way to add colored patterns in knitting. I do hope to some day make mittens, sweaters, skirts, hats and definitely socks and slippers.

For all this I have a homecare journal that I’ve logged my chore lists in and such. It doesn’t really do any good for me sitting on the counter. I rarely refer to it. It just takes up space. Which is sad because it could be a huge encyclopedia of information. I think my main problem with it is that I’m much more into technology now and having it online or at least on the computer would be more useful for me than handwriting and printing off things I find online (usually my only source of information).

I’ve mentioned on twitter that I got Alton Brown’s Gear for the Kitchen from Master for Christmas this year. I’ve read through it and dreamed of what I want in my kitchen. He’s asked me numerous times if I’ve made a list yet and I haven’t. First it was because I wasn’t in the mood for a wish list, then when he made it clear that we’d start getting things from the list I’ve been unsure of exactly what I want. I mean I know of a few things, but it makes me nervous to know that Master wants to spend that much on outfitting my perfect kitchen. I’ve put up with some crap things just cause I haven’t had the money for the nicer things I want (like a KitchenAid). I think I might just have to sit down soon and make that list.

EDIT: I added links to the recipes I could find online.

Reflecting in the past year, how have you progressed in your submission? What challenges have you overcome and what others are you still working on?SubmissiveGuide.com

I’m sure this question was aimed at me directly when I came up with it for this month’s SubWise. It’s not an easy question for me to answer and I guess I wanted others to answer it too so that I didn’t feel alone with my thoughts.

Looking back on the last year I can see I’ve actually gone downhill more often than I’ve progressed. I spent much of this last year grieving my step mother, the loss of a friendship and the loss of a job. None of these things I’m completely over. It sent me into a depression for which I was medicated for much of the year. There have been several large blow outs with Master and I. We are still holding firmly to one another, but the outlook has been bleak on occasion.

In February when I lost my job, Master took a step deeper with me and said that we would try out me being a full time stay at home submissive. It’s not been an easy adjustment and there are still times where I feel like I am not contributing and I’m more of a burden for Master than a blessing. I enjoy not having to work, but then again I think most people would.

I am capturing a desire to learn how to make more things from scratch, pick up some crafting and home care talents. I started recycling early in March and I’m going to learn breadmaking soon as well as pressure cooker canning this next summer.  I’ve always wanted to jar up my chicken and noodles and beef stew. We always have lots of leftovers from it and it would be so pretty to sit in the cupboard rather than the freezer.  The more I learn how to do at home, the more money I think I’ll be saving Master. That’s definitely a good thing.

I taught myself to knit and basic crochet so that I can make a few things we go through a lot of in this house. I’ve been reading up on knitting socks and hope to try my hand at that after I get the double pointed needles and some yarn suitable for it. I’m starting with tube socks since I am lost when I read about turning the heel and admit that I’m still a beginner when it comes to knitting so perhaps next year I can learn how to turn the heel.

My relationship with Master is more difficult to talk about. I know what he expects from me and most days I can find it in me to feel cheery about it. So much of what he expects isn’t difficult really. My attitude towards it has to change. This is something I picked up from reading The Surrendered Wife that I reviewed on SubmissiveGuide. It’s been helpful and from what I can tell so far I’m doing okay. I’ve added a hand written journal that has really helped me voice things that this blog just isn’t good for. AND the physical journal is completely private, Master doesn’t read it.

Our play time is practically non-existent since early this year. It’s mainly my fault. Either I’m not on the mood, I’m sick or hurting or I’m depressed.  I’m certain that as I improve my mood from this current fall out that the play will come back as well.

Needless to say this has been a difficult year.

Bad Back

I’m dealing with a back pain again. I don’t know what causes it other than my weight so I feel a bit bad about that. I spent all day today sitting on the sofa watching TV and knitting. Master has given me a few shallow back rubs and says that my hip area is slightly discolored where it really hurts. I dunno; I’m concerned but not enough yet to do anything other than take it easy. I’ve been knitting so much today that I’m almost half way done with the baby blanket I’m making for my soon to be born niece. She’s due in 3 weeks or so. I’m thinking I”ll be done with it in a week or so at this rate.

There’s nothing really excited going on.  We will hopefully be able to get into the whole play thing soon. Everytime our schedules free up we have something come up. I know this is just life and people say if it is important you’ll make time. *sigh* That’s just insane sometimes. Master really wants to tie up my tits and smack them around. I’m really looking for some control, that power exchange ya know?

I just need to get this back better so that we can do it.

Ya know, I feel bad that this blog is a whine and complaint zone all the time. We really do have wonderful times together. Our relationship is strong even during the really stressful times. I look at him and I just can’t help but feel overwhelmed with love and lust.

Closer to 30 than 20

Master came to me with the realization that he is now closer to 30 than 20. He still is young to me. I’m practically proud that Master is so intelligent and mature for his age. Today is Master’s 2nd 25th birthday ;P He has to be more uncomfortable with age if he explains his age that way. I don’t know. He also once said that he and God have an agreement that he won’t age past a certain point…. coming from a man who doesn’t believe in God.

It’s always been a dream of mine to make Master’s birthday very memorable. Up to now I’ve been unsuccessful. Either my body betrays me and I spend it laying about to recover like this year or I’m so bratty and poor attitude that he doesn’t get what he wants just because I refuse.

Master slept in today and when he got up I enjoyed his company. This afternoon we went to get him a few new games for his birthday. I also made his cake. Double chocolate! Tonight should be good yet. He’s playing with his games right now while I prepare dinner.

Speaking of which I need to get back to it.

Happy Birthday Master. I love you.

Squeezing in a Post

I left this post to the last minute before I’m supposed to be in bed; and I forgot the dishes too so I’m doing them in between thoughts.

I got quite a bit accomplished early on in the day, and then it went down hill from there. I blame Master. He gave me my Christmas present early (Prof. Layton and the Diabolical Box). I’ve been playing that and watching TV all night. Bad subbie!

The visit with my family went okay. I still took about 3 hours to decompress. It’s such a stressful time. I never know how it’s going to go. At least I got them to stop yelling at my nephew every time he moved. He’s 5, he’s allowed to be a kid at Aunt luna’s house for crying out loud. I put my foot down and let them know that at my house is my rules and if he runs around like the kid he is, that’s fine with me.

He got to sit next to me during dinner which he loved but his mom (my sister) was nervous about. I don’t have kids but I guess that means I don’t know how to handle them? Hm.

I got some lovely presents. Mom can still pick out clothing that I’d actually wear and they fit too, so that’s wonderful. Sister looks like she’s about ready to pop any day now with my new niece on the way in 3 weeks. My brother is majorly depressed and no one can see it. They just say he’s been acting weird. Well hell, he lost his job 2 weeks ago, is getting divorced and only gets to see his daughter once a month. I’d be depressed too.

So, um yeah. I gotta do better at the evening stuff getting done long before 5 mins before I go to bed. Off to finish the dishes folks.
