New Rules

Dragon has always been consistent with three rules.

1. Seat belt use
2. No cussing
3. No slamming doors

Just three little pet peeves he enforces even when all other aspects of DD seem to be gone and forgotten.

Now there is going to be something new.  A schedule to be followed.

My health stays on a roller coaster.  Up and down. This last down sent me into a downward spin.  Now that I am feeling much better I am having a hard time breaking my old habits.  The routine I followed out of necessity while I was at my sickest just keeps hanging on.

I asked for help and Dragon has decided to put me on a schedule. 15 minute tasks.  I am going to be micromanaged until I can do it on my own.   Enforced with the paddle.

This is the first time he has suggested something like this. We have tried schedule before but it was my idea. He didn't want to do it.  This is his idea.  I wonder if this is going to be another flop or if it is going to be a 4th rule that sticks.

Only my bottom will know.

Dragon has been sticking to the morning and evening swats.  Sunday reminders have been consistent and Wednesday has been added to the mix.  10-15 not so fun swats.  Somehow I think he is going to stick to it.  I won't be testing him any time soon.

Ps. I will be traveling soon.  My daughter's due date is approaching quickly. May 23 is the magic number. I am going out there to get her house ready a few weeks early.  Prayer for safe travels, a stress free trip and a healthy delivery!


  1. I hope it all works out and travel safely.

  2. So happy you two are doing so well, Rose! Nope...don't think I would be testing him anytime soon either. ;) Sending lots of prayers and positive thoughts for safe travels, stress free travels and a healthy delivery and baby.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. First day of the new rules and I am already struggling. Blag. I have enough on my to do list that I don't have time for old habits but I am fighting hard. I didn't expect it to be this hard. One step at a time. Workout, grass, shower and then sewing room. Breathe
