**This blog was originally created in 2010 to document my husband and my life as we tried to get pregnant with our first child. After finding BDSM I repurposed the blog in 2014 to look at our kink and balancing it with the two children we now have. Please feel free to read the below posts and any from my 2010 and 2011 archive, but please be aware that they are not representative of our life now. Also, certain edits have been made to these posts. To start from the beginning of our kinky life, start here. **
Yesterday was my labour day. Dad and I did a mass rework of the backyard. We cut down the dead tree that has been threatening to fall into our not-so-nice neighbors yard since we moved in. We trimmed the branches of the very nice neighbors trees that were hanging into our yard. Then we leveled the mounds of dirt on the left side of the walk and spread mulch. The dogs are getting used to it, not eating it as much as I feared. But, in any case, my back is quite sore.
We took my parents to brunch at Coca’s this morning. I really like that place. I had this amazing almond french toast with lemon glaze. It was pretty deadly, but really good. Then we went to the Monroeville Mall and mom and I each bought suits. I pretend like I’m working toward finding a better job. Really, I’m just hoping one will fall in my lap. However, the economy is stifling this pipe dream.
The other new thing is that my father brought me his sewing machine. I’ve never been much of a quilter, but I’m going to try my hand at it again. I’ve been looking for a big project to take on since D started school. I’m sick of watching TV by myself on the weekends while he works. I’m hoping this will keep me from getting too bored and also produce something. I bought some fabric from Etsy that I’m really excited about, so we’ll see what happens. This sewing machine and I have not really even gotten along, so this could be quite the battle of wills. If I do manage to create something even mildly impressive I will be sure to post pictures.
Other than the yard, not really any big holiday plans. I was actually hoping that they would have a skeleton crew in tomorrow so I could pick up some overtime, but oh well. Mom and dad are leaving later this evening and D has school work to do. So, we’ll see what I sort out with setting up the sewing machine and reading my book. Trying to be productive is the goal, but it does not always happen that way.
