It’s January, 2024. It will be several months before my pet can return from VA to visit. In the meantime, I have to keep occupied and attempt to keep things fresh for when she does arrive. Which is a tall order when you’re basically in a holding pattern until that occurs.
In the interim, I have a few things I’m needing to do with the house to get things ready for when she does arrive. The area of the basement where we normally play needs a bit of a ‘spruce-up’ and I need to dig into my toy collection and re-catalog everything I have, with the intent of paring down some of the items that are redundant, (like the 4 sets of hospital restraints I bought on eBay 10 plus years ago) and the metal restraints that probably won’t fit her. No point in holding onto them, they take up space and might be better served in someone else’s care.
Other parts of the house need sprucing up as well. My learned habit of ‘pack-ratting’ has gotten out of hand to the point where every room in the house pretty much has a pile of this or that in it and needs to be pared down, donated, tossed or otherwise dealt with. Definitely don’t want to be on a future episode of ‘Hoarders’.
I’ve been thinking about posting more in this blog about my kink journey, where I came from, where I’ve been and where I plan on going. My girl and I have been conversing about ‘what comes after’ when we’re finally under the same roof, so it might be a good idea to catalog that, and have something to rely on when the time comes. Even though my far-flung off plans for the future might have to be changed in 10-15 years, depending on housing costs, retirement assets and the like. There are certain areas of this country where kink isn’t exactly understood (or welcome), so that has to be factored in as well. So, there’s something else for me to do.
Just a little something something about thoughts that have been percolating in my brain of late. I didn’t blog much in 2023, having switched to a new hosting service due to my last one increasing costs by 400% (still think that was ridiculous) caused more angst that I really wanted (basically had to create 2 established blogs from scratch). We’re in a new year, so why not turn over a new leaf? Why indeed. We’ll see how successful I am.
