So, I started my new job yesterday. I am so excited about having a desk, lol. I have my own L-shaped desk. I’ve never had a job where I’ve had my own desk before. So yesterday after my first day, I b-lined it to staples and bought out everything pink and black…yes, my desk will have a theme.
So mostly today and yesterday was spent watching training videos and talking to my co-workers. All of them seem very nice. I was feeling very blessed today working…until I realized the pay cut difference. I’m going from make $24.50 an hour to $17.30…a major pay difference. But I have to look at it like this too…I am getting health insurance, and access to our wellness center. It’s just going to be very tight with us trying to pay off some bills. But once we get some bills paid off it won’t be so tight. We are just going to have to watch money for the next couple of months.
Also I thought even when I was off from work I would get up pretty early. Like 7 or 8, but now I have to get up at 6am in order to get dogs fed and myself ready for work. These past two days I have been dead dog tired. So I didn’t put into account that I would have to get used to getting up so early and actually going into a job.
Which means I may have to take a break in showing dogs. I will have to focus just on Capone and Furi and maybe try to get Presco’s CD title another time. I am showing him and Capone this week at a cluster of dog shows. From today’s training sessions with both dogs, we are going just for practice apparently. Both boys seem distracted and just not giving me the time of day. Tomorrow night we have Obedience run throughs at the training center so we will see how Presco does with that. But I’m not expecting a lot from them this weekend.
So this week, I’m trying to train dogs for a show, and get used to going back to work, training for new job, and turn in my old job equipment among other thing. Needless to say I’m definitely going to need my coffee this week….
So two weeks ago me and Sir went to an event titled “Beat My Valentine”, it was a lovely event filled with classes during the day and dungeon parties at night. We knew another couple that was going. So we were very excited to go.
We got there Friday night, because we were told there was a social gathering “vanilla”, in the bar scene of the hotel. So we attended. It was a fun night..of what I can remember. So apparently the bartender were making the drinks very strong. Sir had 3 Long Island Iced Teas and decided after the third one he had had enough and he went back to the room. He allowed me to stay and chat with the other submissives. I met a submissive that has lupus as well and we talked about the struggle. Then after that….I don’t remember a lot. LOL. I think I had one too many. So I had to be escorted back to my room by a submissive that I knew. When we got back to the room, Sir had apparently thrown up EVERYWHERE! He was still awake and feeling bad. The submissive that took me back to my room is also a nurse. She gave us both Zofran and put us to bed. I am telling you this through a third party telling me about it the next day. I found some selfies on my phone of people that I don’t even remember talking to. Definitely over did it on the drink situation for both of us..LOL
So we were supposed to go to classes all day Saturday. Well we didn’t wake up until noon. So we went to go get something to eat. Sir wasn’t feeling his best, I was ok, I just didn’t remember what happened after Sir had gone up to the room. So we skipped classes and went to the dungeon party that night. It was nice. There were vendors there. This one called “Steel Bones” they make corsets, which is an addiction of mine. But they were really priced high..$180 per corset so I will have to be saving up to get one. They definitely felt good when I tried them on. Sir liked them too. We went into the Dungeon space where we witnessed a submissive in a scene being beat with a rubber fish…interesting….Other scenes were the same ones we’d seen before a lot of rope play. By 11:00PM we were tired so we went back up to the room.
Sir did not play with me as he was not feeling like himself. Overall our first big BDSM Event went nicely. We slowly introduced ourselves into it. It was nice to hang out with so many people who are interested in the same thing. It was also nice to get away from the doggies for a minute too.
LOL! So..again I haven’t dropped off the face of the planet. I’ve just been busy with a lot of things..Dogs, D/s events, and getting ready for a new job mainly. But I will talk more about them in detail, in another post.
So apparently March is Q&A month for us bloggers. So in the true spirit of things I am going to participate. I rarely hide anything, except my real name. SOOOO Fire away…you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
