Quiet Torturers

So, was at a complete loss as to what to get the Duke for Valentine's Day.  I knew with help stepping up DD, and with it being hard with little and older people in the house, that it would need to be something we could do discretely.

So, I tripled our quiet implement collection.  The dowel in the middle is one we already had, it's 15 inches long.  The clear rod is a tilt wand (from mini blinds), and it's 12 inches long.  I wanted a longer one, but I couldn't find one longer that would fit into our little wood chest.  The last one is the plastic wand for a cat's toy.  I had to cut off the end to make it only 20-21 inches long so it would fit diagonally in the chest.  That one is springy, and is going to HURT!  The Duke tried one swing and I was in agony.  That one may just make a mistake and get lost, or find itself over a hot flame where it just melts into goo.  :P  Poor little thing. :P


How was your Valentine's Day?  We didn't celebrate on the day because we were both sick.  Duke with the flu, me with a horrible migraine that actually sent me to emerg at one point this week.  Can't wait until it's gone.  So I gave him my gifts, but we're hoping to celebrate tonight with as long a date as we can be away. :)

  1. Hi Es May, good lord, these all look painfil! We have a pole from a cat toy also. The darn thing hurts like the dickens!

    Sorry you have both been sick and hope you get rid of the migraine soon and that you get to celebrate Valentines Day belatedly.

    We have never celebrated in any big way and just had a nice lunch out this year.

    Hugs

    1. Hi, Roz. I know the dowel can be... I have a feeling the Duke will be trying out the other two on me tonight. But thankfully he knows his strength, and he knows to read me. So "HOPEFULLY" it won't be too bad. :P {{{HUGS}}}

    1. LOL I may have to remind the Duke before he uses them that I got them in total trust that he wouldn't abuse them. :P {{{HUGS}}}

    1. Thank you, Katie, I hope so too! Though we haven't had any time since my parents moved in a year and a half ago. :( My mom never leaves the house. :( She stays in her room all the time, which is RIGHT NEXT to ours. :( Hoping they take a trip soon and that she'll actually go. She keeps saying she can't travel, but she can. :(

Please feel free to leave any comments, but I do ask you to be kind. We go into this with eyes wide open after months of prayer, and a peace in our hearts that this is the right choice before God for our marriage. I am open to questions from those who wonder why we made this choice, but I would ask for no personal attacks. Thank you. :)
