Getting Fit: Week 8, 9, and 10

September 30th, 2010

So… Let’s see…

As you can see, I’m sucking at remembering to write these.  I get so busy with the rest of my responsibilities that fall at the end of the week that I let this one fall by the wayside.  Maybe I should change the day I post it.  We’ll see.

I’ve been trying to make small goals for myself, but it’s not really working out like I’d hoped.  That’s totally my fault.  They’ve been really small, and I’ve mostly just blown them off.

For example, last week, my goal was to reorganize my food cabinet every time I took something out to make it easier for me to see what we have left, cause I don’t always remember.  I mean, not that taking something out destroys the way my cabinet is organized.  I don’t really do much with regard to organization besides put the boxes and cans on different shelves, so really, all reorganizing entails is moving the boxes that didn’t fit on the shelf off the cans when I take other boxes off the shelf.  But I’m always in so much of a hurry, even when there’s really not a reason for me to be, that I can’t be bothered to take the time to do that.

Lame, right?

We’ve been keeping a closer eye on our finances, and taking care not to spend more money than we have to on things that we can buy cheaply.  We’re getting frustrated because keeping up with the bills makes it hard to do things outside of our home, but hopefully, we’ll be caught up enough in the near future that we won’t have that issue forever.

Last week, we walked a LOT.  Partially because we forgot that Rite Aid was so far away, and partially because we just wanted to walk.  Oh, and because it made more sense to walk to the bus stop to get to the data center than to take the bus all the way downtown just to walk to the same stop.

We haven’t walked much this week.  We were too busy, and I was too frazzled.

And as for our relationship…

M’s still saying He’s gonna make that schedule.  He still hasn’t.  But in His defense, He’s been crazy busy.  Tons of work emergencies, and picking up work because He’s the only one who can do it.

The other day, I freaked out, and M made the decision to start holding me to the core stuff.  Like responding to everything He says with “Master” in the response.  And keeping me focused on being obedient and pleasing.

To that end, when I asked, all snotty-like, if I could finish my coffee before going to the store because I’d just poured it, He made me re-ask respectfully.  When He asks me questions, or gives me orders, and I don’t respond correctly, He makes me.

He also plans to write a new set of rules.  Something shorter, and easier to remember.

And we’re thinking about joining Kink Academy regardless of whether or not I get the sponsored blogging position.  We’re really interested in learning more about kink, and the membership is really cheap! And we could incorporate those things into getting the M/s back on track.

And I guess that’s about it.  At least we’re still moving forward.  Slow and steady wins the race.

This week’s goal: Slow down.  The rushing that I do is causing me more trouble than anything.  I make mistakes, and drop things, and break things because I’m hurrying.  So it’s time to try to slow down.
