I don’t know why I was so tired after dinner last night. The lion was snoozing through Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, and I was almost right there with him. I told him I didn’t know why I was tired. I snuggled in next to him and said I was too tired to do anything. He said I could pet him. At one point, he said he was a little horny. Hint, hint. A while later, he said we don’t have an outstanding track record with sex lately. He said if he snoozes, we tend not to do anything sexual. I reminded him that I was tired, so even if he didn’t snooze, we wouldn’t have done anything last night anyway.
I know sex is important to him. I know I took a few days “off” because of the power outages and my being achy. Being back in the office is a little stressful for me. I feel like I’m running around in circles. Lion isn’t able to help much, so it’s still just me doing most things. It’s a lot, and sometimes it gets to me. And then he comments about sex. Argh!
He shouldn’t stop talking about sex. That’s not what I’m saying at all. I’m sure I could do more to let him know when I’m getting stressed. I guess I don’t even realize when I’m hitting my limit until I’m past it. If I don’t know, there’s no way Lion could know.
You’re wondering why I didn’t tell him last night. Why didn’t I punish him? That’s another problem. I could have punished him, but I would have felt bad. Was it overreacting? Was it only because I was tired? And if I were tired, I certainly wouldn’t want a confrontation. It’s complicated.
Tonight, whether I’m tired or not, I’ll spank Lion. It’s not really punishment because he didn’t do anything. It’s a “just because” spanking that I probably would have given him last night if I wasn’t so tired. As a side effect, it might turn him on and help him get to the edge. Win-win.
