You'll be glad, this post is pretty short. :)
Thank you, everyone, for writing last week. You are an amazing group of people, and were just the encouragement that I needed. Seriously, you know how to make a girl feel loved.
So, my birthday is this month, I hit the big 40. EEEEEEK! Which isn't that big a deal to me, except it marks the end of having children. Having only one that lived, I had hoped to let them have siblings, but oh well. I have many friends wand siblings with young children, and they often play together. So I am blessed by that.
So, for my birthday, I had money given to me early, and I bought two things. One is a set of writing books I've been drooling over. I have been writing DD books since 2012, and never brave enough to actually publish any. So, armed with writing advice from several blogs I've been reading, essays, and the like on how to be a good writer, and now armed with these new books, I'm trying to get a book I started in 2012 that was only half written, though the scenes mostly sketched out, ready for publishing. It might totally suck, I don't know... but I'm going to try. Freaking out nervous, it's a story I have day dreamt over and over for the past six years, and to put it out there for people to share in my daydream, is a bit scary.
The other thing I bought was some things at pinkcherry.ca. :) They are having a 40% off sale, so I got about $90 in stuff for only $52 plus taxes. I got one especially that I think the Duke will like, though he'll like them all. :P But there is one especially that I hope he'll like. :)
Other than that, things are going better. The Duke and I will finally get a date this afternoon, haven't had one of those in a while. I PMSed this weekend, and the Duke chased me into the kitchen when I was having a fit, and let me tell you, he wasn't putting up with it. My hands were pinned, I was immobile, and he was literally in my face telling me to CALM DOWN. And of course, as the timid, quiet, shy, obedient, submissive, and always compliant girl that you know me to be, I gave in without on little bit of resistance. I did "not" get upset, or up in his face, or physically fight his hold on me until I saw how serious he was. No, no, no, not me. *whistling innocently* Okay, so he had to help me calm down. *SIGH* But I'm glad he did, because when he does, when he cuts my monthly tantrum off at the knees, I have nothing to apologize for later. I am so thankful he's stepping up and doing that for me again. It makes me feel loved, and like I am worth his time.
So that is my week, aside from work and family stuff. lol How are you all this week?
