I emailed Nick again yesterday. I had a few ideas I wanted to run by him. He gave me a good long-term goal to work on, but I knew I needed some shorter-term goals to work on too.
I suggested having a bedtime rule. I know I need more sleep. I hate going to bed, I hate getting up in the morning and I’m exhausted when I get home every afternoon. I know getting enough sleep will also help with weigh loss. What I told Nick was:
I just feel like this is something I can work on, but it won’t seem earth shattering or defiant if I don’t make it every night. Some nights I’ll be getting in bed early, maybe to avoid a spanking the next day. And maybe some nights I’ll be late because I know I need a spanking and can’t really ask for one.
And deep down I chose asked for this because I felt I could also fudge a little since occasionally I can slip into bed without him knowing exactly what time it is.
And then he goes and put an HOH twist to it! Here’s what he added:
You will need to keep a bedtime journal I can refer to time to time to see how you are doing, because I won't always know what time you get to bed even when I am aware of your arrival.
Hey wait! How can I be sneak with this? And then he we from preaching to meddling as he added:
Another record I want you to start keeping is a brief log recording roughly the amount of time spent daily on two areas. First the time spent on your computer games, second the time spent on exercise. See where this is heading?
Yes he’s definitely paying attention – not trying to cut into my writing time, but still finding time in my day for exercise.
There may also be an issue of timing here – I was the very happy winner of a paddle from Blondie in the Winter Spanks blog hop. I’m so excited! I’d looked at the pocket paddle several times wanting one and I eagerly showed it to Nick. He took the computer looking at it carefully. He thought it was very pretty too, but then he looked at me with a slightly evil grin and added, “You’re not going to like it.”
He’s nuts, it’s beautiful and I’m going to love it. Now whether of not I tell him when it actually arrives, that another story.
