It is always good when a plan works the way you hope.
Steve's idea for transition time has really made a difference for us.
Knowing that I have that time to look forward to has helped me feel less stressed at work. Having the time has also helped me feel more peaceful at home and to relish the change from dominant to submissive each day.
Each day has been a little different, but the components have remained the same. I spend about fifteen minutes by myself doing absolutely nothing but sit or lay down, close my eyes, and breathe deeply. This is followed by my act of submission.
If it is corner time then it is only about five to ten minutes. If Steve decides it is a butt plug day then he comes in and has me strip and he puts it in. It stays in until he says otherwise. If it extends beyond my transition time then I am to dress and continue with my evening as if it isn't there.
You haven't lived until you are sitting at the dining room table helping your child with math homework with a butt plug in your rear!
My favorite day was actually this past Saturday. I had worked that day (which is very rare as I usually don't for religious reasons), and when I got home it was a beautiful afternoon. I texted Steve to let him know that I was going to the porch swing in front of the shed instead of coming into the house for transition time. I received back a text that said, "That's perfect, I'll meet u out there in a little while."
Steve joined me after about ten minutes, and we continued to swing while we snuggled.
"I have a surprise for you."
"Guess what came in today."
"The Loopy Johnny?" (We had ordered one from The London Tanners)
"Yep. It is hanging in the shed. I was actually thinking about trying it out when you got home. Then you decided to come out to the swing. It seems like the perfect opportunity."
"Where are the kids?"
"[The eldest] took them to see a movie. They'll be gone for at least another hour. What do you say? Should we have a little fun and get maintenance done too?"
"Sounds good, but do we have to go in the shed? It's going to be hot in there this time of day."
"Actually, I was thinking right here."
Although you can see the front of our house from the street the rest of the property is very private.
"Okay, I'm game."
"Great! You strip while I go get it."
I'd read from others that the loopy johnny was something else, but I was surprised by the intensity of it. Overall, we both like it. It is quiet in comparison to the strap. I have a feeling it will be used often.
Between the transition time and the almost daily maintenance spankings, I have to say that it has been a good week. I have been feeling almost euphoric. However, I'm bracing myself for the fact that in real life things don't stay blissful forever. There will be a bump in the road, so I'm just going to appreciate the good while it lasts.
