Slow It Down

Posted: 21st February 2012 by Duality in What's Happening

Not much to post about today other then what I’m doing to Grace this week.  With all the stress she’s been under, I decided to scale back her tasks.  She did not immediately appreciate this fact largely because she didn’t see where I had scaled things back from.  I invited her to compare and contrast to previous weeks but she eventually went with the “No, I suppose you’re right” response which always leaves me strongly suspecting that she just gave in.  I really don’t like when she does that especially when I’m in a position of being lenient with her, but it was what it was.  My overall plan was to slow it down this week and slowly ramp back up.  The only thing I haven’t liked about it thus far is really a lack of appreciation about this gesture and a seeming (to me) lack of submission.  Its possible that I’ve been too laid back of late with her and too forgiving.  She didn’t finish her tasks today owing to a monumental brain fart and I let it slide, sort of.  I told her to finish the task tomorrow.  Somehow months of laundry meaning “do a load of laundry, fold it, and put it away” got translated into “do a load of laundry”.  So I’m finding myself in the odd position of trying to slow things down for her so that she can de-stress a little more this week after the last few weeks of nothing but doctor visits for either her Dad or myself while at the same time preparing to draw a line in the sand and say that if you can’t do the reduced workload I’m putting in front of you then perhaps a more stern approach with punishments should be called for.  That’s something I’d obviously like to avoid.  Actually, I just thought of the perfect approach.  I’m not going to share that here because I’m already dangerously close to using the blog to affect my sub which is something I told myself I wouldn’t do so before I let her read this I’m going to have a quick chat with her.  *evil grin*  I really do need a white cat like Cee Lo has on the Voice.  You can’t pull off a proper evil grin without one in my opinion.

Anyway, that’s really all that’s going on.  Probably more on this later.
