(I’m considering ditching titles in the new year. They are pretty darned useless on a personal blog anyhow. Dates work.)
I’m so ready for my wrist pains to go away. I’ve broken out the heavy duty wrist braces with the metal supports to see if I can cut it down a bit. I want to be able to please Master with a blow job for Christmas at least, if not before. I take Alieve every time I can and it’s helping, but not completely. If I could I’d just sit around all day and not do anything that requires my hands. But then that means asking for more TV time just to waste a day and I’m not looking to do that yet.
We are supposed to get some snow tomorrow late through Friday. I’m glad I don’t have to travel anywhere. We aren’t even having family Christmas till Monday.
Christmas day we’ll be watching Dr Who all day and then the Christmas special that evening. I’m fixing turkey and trimmings. It should be a nice day.
Then, Monday we are going to my mom’s house where my sister and her children will be there and my brother’s daughter will be also. Lots of kids taxing Master’s nerves. He’s definitely not a kids person. I’m going to do my best to only be at Mom’s for as little as possible, but that’s still several hours. Dinner is at 3pm with present opening after. And at Mom’s house that means, one… present… at… a… time. Everyone has to watch what everyone else gets. The longest it’s taken is 4 hours. I really hope it doesn’t take that long this time.
Moving on to my service, Master and I have had talks about bits of service that I used to do, but have stopped doing. A few of them I expressed a desire to get back into it. I’m not sure why I stopped to begin with because I know Master liked it. I know I enjoyed it. It just… stopped. So, we’ll be restarting them now.
They were never rules, they were things I either just started doing and he told me he liked it, or it was something we did to keep me in a good mindset when I was having issues with that. So, Master never needed to correct me for failing to do it but now I’m asking him to ramp it on those if I get bad.
One of them is that whenever I deliver something to Master (ie. his coffee) I will present it to him with “Your coffee Master” and wait for a response from him. I’m also wanting to add back asking for permission to leave his presence as well as acknowledging his presence when he enters the room. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing, but probably a word greeting with a halt to whatever I’m doing to let him know I’m available to him if he needs me.
I like protocol and dropping these things confuses me. Now, I’ve started up the presentation again, as that one seems easiest to restart. The asking to leave his presence and acknowledging his entrance will take a bit. We’ll have to discuss what we’ll like to do for that and what will work in public as well as private.
You may recall a few years ago, if you’ve been following me that long, that I had a home management journal in physical form. I didn’t have a place for it to live really so it kept getting put away, and then never pulled out and used. Well last week I had a light bulb moment. I’m online a lot, almost all the time. Why not use the internet to house my management journal. So, I’m working on adding what I want to it. You can peak at it if you click on the Homecare link up there in the navigation. Just remember that it’s pretty empty right now.
