Well, this man of mine is so right. I am so overwhelmed by the amazing day I had today... And all I did was clean up, go to an appointment and organize... My kids were actually all on a sleepover last night!! Yay! So I had plenty of time to do exactly as I pleased without hearing a single "I'm Hungry!"
I got up on time this morning... Not a second early either... I really am not one of those amazing morning people! Seriously, I would love to be, and I have tried... But I am not that person. I can do late nights no problem, I have worked nightshift and not had any issues... But mornings! UGH!! Shoot me please! But I digress.. My morning was great. I accomplished so many things that have been on my to-do list for months! Like seriously, I am blown away with everything I accomplished today! And my hubby is pretty impressed too.
I am so impressed daily how well this TTWD thing works. I'm not even motivated by trying to avoid a spanking, it is more about how happy my hubby is when he hears how well my day went. I love when he is proud of me, not that he wasn't proud of me before... But I find that he is vocalizing it more now. He is noticing details that he wouldn't have noticed before. I feel so important to him.
I am loving seeing how he is taking charge. Yesterday it was time to get out of the house and he sent one of the kids to tell me he was in the car and wanted to leave in 5 minutes. I hustled and was ready to go in about 7 minutes. He wasn't fussy about the extra 2 minutes because it was more of "about 5 minutes"... He just didn't want to be leaving late... again... Because what would have happened in the past is that he would have been in the car with the kids waiting.. and I would have just gotten finished when I did... Because he would have felt bad rushing me, and I wouldn't have known that they had gone to the car... So now that he feels like the has the authority to say "Hey, we are leaving in X number of minutes." we are getting along so much better.
This is such a unique lifestyle choice, one that I never in my wildest dreams would have guessed I would be living just a few short years ago. But I am so glad that I did... Most of the time... Usually bent over a bed having my behind warmed up by an evil, stingy spatula I am wondering about my better judgment... haha... But that is always short lived...
I am excited about tomorrow and seeing how it goes with getting up on time and my check list of items to be done... Although.. There is a small issue of forgetting the van unlocked today!! I haven't done that in 7 months!! Not since my big spanking... I was getting something out of my car and it was pretty heavy. I closed my front door with my car keys in my hand... But then didn't give my car a second thought.. :( So I am sure when hubby has a minute we will have an appointment over the bed... I don't anticipate it being that bad though... Its once in 7 months, he is a reasonable man :) haha, oh the joys of this lifestyle.
