The Paddle Update

So HOH tried the paddle on me, it lives up to it's name. He likes that it is easy to hold, but was very intimidated to try it. LOL, the right tool for the right job!

I figured out that right now I need maintenance about 2 times a week, somewhere on the weekend and somewhere around Wednesday. That seems to be my pattern for keeping calm and collected. Guess we all get the midweek grumps and need a little more encouragement.



  1. Humm...that's exactly how it works around here too. Poor us. :)

    1. @Susie There was a discussion recently on the ldd forum in regards to maintenance or not. Some folks can go without maintenance, but I am a strong supporter of maintenance for me. It's not fun to get into grumpy, stress Mixie mode Maintenance seems to be the miracle for me. Ha, I was born on Wed and so was my kiddo. *What was I thinking?! lol*

    2. No it's true. It keeps MM and I on an even keel and helps me stay softer. We really don't like the drama of me slowly building up steam and then behaving badly. There is a lot less discipline around here b/c of maintenance. It's not that it wards off bad behaviour, but it sure does help a ton.

  2. I wish you both well on your maintenance :)
