clean house

That was a rule for the new house.  It shamed me that he needed to make it a rule but depression made it hard move.  Things got away from me and chaos invaded.  It is going better here.  I think because I am happy.  We are living in a state we want to live in, closer to family and the landscape is not desolate and empty.   The grass isn't very green but there are trees everywhere and not a tumble weed in sight!  No juniper or sage brush.  What a relief!

The house isn't perfect.  Not by a long shot but it is better.  The floors are swept and vacuumed every day.  The sink stays empty and the refrigerator is clean.  No more out of control, unintentional science projects in there!

School work is even going better with the kids.  This is the first year I have them all on a computer based program.  I love it.  No text books to keep up with, no teacher keys to hide and they love the games.  The math is harder than what I had them in but they are all keeping up and staying on track.  That is a huge relief for me.  Now I don't have to worry about what will happen if I have to put them in public school.  I know they will do fine.  They will do better than fine.

Great news!  I found my corsets yesterday!  Yippee!  I have started the process of training back into them.  I started with an hour yesterday.  I put my oldest corset on but didn't pull the laces up any.  Today I will lace it snug and try for two hours.  My ribs need to settle back into place before I can really lace it down the way I like it.  That will take months to do.  Oh well.  I'll get there.  It takes time.

Time to get busy.  The house needs to be cleaned.... again and school work needs to get done.  I don't want Dragon to come home to a dirty house.  My bottom would pay the price.  Yikes!


  1. Glad to hear everything is getting better.
    But that corsettraining sounds severe.
    Keep breathing!

    1. breathing is not a problem in a well made corset. I love them. It feels like a nice bear hug to me. Nothing is more feminine than a corset.

  2. I love a clean home... i sweep and use the dry wiper mop thing every day. my mum thinks i'm mad.

    it's nice to hear things are looking better :) and yay corsets! I only have one but i love it!

    1. I'll never keep a show room, perfectly kept house but it is much better. I feel more at home here than I ever did up north.

  3. I have always wanted to try out a corset! How fun, and I can see how it would make a woman feel even womanlier...
    Glad you are feeling better. Being in charge of my own home always makes me feel better too.

    1. Love my Corsets. Here is a link to a post with a photo of my all time favorite corset.

      Strange how that works isn't it? Feel bad, house gets bad. Feel better and the house gets better too. :)
