The past few weeks have been hectic and I haven't had much time to write. My husbands work schedule is pretty much crazy at the moment, our son is extremely mobile, we're getting ready to move (hellooooooo new house on the beach!!), we're building a house, I got sick (and now I'm better), we've got a bunch of trips coming up and I could go on and on and on and on but you get the idea...we've been busy. So, with all of that, I'm sorry for my lack of ability to write.
Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on who you ask or how you think about it, DD doesn't really disappear during those times when life gets extremely busy.
Because our life is so busy lately, fortunately or unfortunately (depending on who you ask, and how you think about it) if I make a mistake/break a rule, I haven't been getting a "major spanking". I have, however, been getting these "nightly reminder spankings". The point, I guess, is to remind me that I'm still in trouble, he hasn't forgot, and when our life settles down just for a moment, I'll get spanked.
At first, his concept of "nightly reminder spankings" seemed like a really dumb idea. Just spank me and get it over with, right? However, as the nightly reminder spankings became more real, I realized that maybe it isn't so bad. The concept of it is actually pretty effective, even though it sucks to admit sometimes that my husband was right and I was wrong.
Thankfully I have been following the rules pretty well lately though! Well, at least I think so. There was that one time (or two times..) when I left my hair straightener on for like 4 hours and almost burnt down the house. But hey, aside from that, I've been an angel. :)
So, after like 4 nights of him doing "nightly reminder spankings" and "cracking down to enforce the rules", I've definitely learned not to leave my straightener on for several hours.
If your life is getting hectic (like mine), there are alternates to making sure that DD doesn't have to take a back seat. Just ask my husband, he seems to have no trouble at all finding ways around it. :)
And now for my random sentences...
Thank you to everyone who wished me happy birthday yesterday!! I really appreciate it!
Yesterday (on my birthday!!) my son said "mama" for the first time. Not only did he say it once, twice, three, four times but he wouldn't stop saying it and he's currently been saying it all morning. I have to say, it is the best feeling in he world.
Friday nights (that is tonight everyone!) are the Ladies Night chats in the LDD Social Network. It starts about 9pm eastern time, but feel free to pop in whenever, if you are a girl. :) We'd love to see you there! And, if you're not a girl..don't worry, there are men chat nights occasionally also. :)
At some point next week, I'll be doing a "Weekly Roundup" of the best DD blogs and blog entries on random topics. If there's anyone you'd like to nominate, please email it to me .
Have a FANTASTIC weekend everyone! Happy Cinco de Mayo tomorrow. We'll be celebrating with a giant rib cookout. How non-Mexican, right? Yeah..probably should have thought that one through a little more.
