**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. **
I think that everyone in general is under too much stress. The stress of everyday life is overwhelming for even the most focused. All we do is worry about money or time. Bills take up more of my thoughts than my husband. Everyone as my office is constantly on edge. About losing their job, about money, their kids, what the person next to them thinks of them. Any little thing can set a person off. It’s a building full of crabby people just waiting to turn on each other. If a problem arises, blame spreads like wildfire. As threats of layoffs loom, everyone is out for themselves. Everyone is so worried about tomorrow that ends in an endless bad mood. So when I get home I am so tired of defending things and justifying my actions that I can hardly make dinner and play with the dogs. And my dogs make me happier than anyone. It’s just weird. We all need less stress.
