So before I tell you about the great things about my blog now, I wanted to tell you what a horrible wife I am! My husband has had a scratch down the back of his tricep for several days now. I asked how he got it two days ago, but he shrugged me off, so I assumed that meant he didn't know how he got it, and it was probably one of the cats crawling over him while he was sleeping.
WELLLLL.... it happened while he was sleeping alright! And it was me who did it! He told me so last night. I told him I didn't see how I could have, but he was adamant that it was me. He didn't want me to feel bad, but I was laughing so hard not believing him, that he started to push to show he was right. I still don't know how I could have done it, but I have started debating on cutting my nails now. I used to bite them, and less than ten years ago, stopped. But it wasn't until the past couple of years that I've actually been able to grow them, and I love how long they are. Not freakishly long, but probably 1/4 of an inch. Now to see if I decide to clip them off. :( :( No, there won't be any tears, but I will be a bit sad. I don't want to hurt Hubby. The scratch is a good four inches long, if not longer, and it could be worse next time.
So... now about the changes in my blog. I am starting to feel that my blog is starting to reflect who I am, bit by bit, the look of it is more of who I am.
I spent today working on my Profile Photo. The heart with the DD in it was only supposed to be temporary until I could find a photo with a woman kneeling before a man. But the more I looked, the more I couldn't find what I had in mind. So I decided today to try a silhouette like Jack and Jill use for theirs. I played around with it until I liked it, but still, it seemed empty, and after a while, decided to put our cats in for a little extra. LOL It just did not look right without. I promise, I love my cats, but am not obsessed. LOL And then I added the DD at the top right of the heart. (I have since removed the cats and put in hearts)
The reason I wanted a woman kneeling before a man is because I felt it would help show my submissive dream. The want to kneel before my husband and let him be in control, trusting him with my vulnerability. To me, for a Profile Photo, a woman kneeling before a man was the best way to show my want for a submissive state of mind. I fudged a bit, she's skinnier than me... with bigger boobs! ;) But in all honesty, I was just aiming to draw a man and a woman, not necessarily my Hubby and I. :)
Also, the tagline I have on my Title Bar now is something I love. I looked up shotgun to see how it was spelt, one word, or two. And in looking it up, I learned that to ride shotgun is a term from times of war. One person would drive the vehicle, the other would have their back by having a gun at the ready to shoot anyone that came at them. I would like to think that not only have I given my husband the wheel in our relationship, I would like to think that I have his back as well. It seemed to further solidify my desire to have "Riding Shotgun So Hubby Can Take The Wheel" as my tagline. It just made it even more perfect.
The title bar I had before I had designed myself, and then played around with it today to make it right for my new blog name. I drew everything except the words, which I just used fonts for in Paint Shop Pro. But if anything looks not quite right in it, feel free to let me know so I can fix it. :) I almost didn't keep the butterflies, but then I wanted the background to still match, so I put them on the title words... hopefully that looks okay. :) I didn't want to have to redesign my background yet. :) It took a lot of work to make it, and am not ready to tackle a new background as well yet. :)
So for those of you that have me on your blogrolls, I believe it will stay as "My Journey Into DD" unless you change it, but anyone knew adding me to a blogroll will see me as "Submitting To Be Led". If you didn't read my post a few weeks ago, this name change is because there is a blog called "My Journey In DD" and I felt kind of bad that I didn't realize how close I'd made my blog name to another's when I started. They never mentioned the similarities, but I still felt bad. And this new title seems to fit me more now. :)
Have a good night all.
