I fell asleep when I got home from work yesterday. Suddenly it was almost 7. Oops. I guess I really was tired. When I put the puppy in her crate, I reminded her that the goal was to sleep until 6. Yeah, right. She was up at 3 again. And then she was up well before 6. Luckily, she didn’t whine too much and let me sleep a little longer. Lion was up, so I let her out and was able to nod off until 6:30, when the alarm went off. And then I went to work. A two-hour meeting made me incredibly sleepy again. Argh!

The just because spanking for tonight was canceled yesterday. Lion and I have been having stomach issues for the past week or so. We’re at the point that we feel better, but that next meal might send us over the edge again. Part of my problem may be a lack of sleep. Do I have enough energy for normal digestion? I think it’s better to lay low for a while longer to let things work themselves out. Barring any setbacks, we should be good to go for Monday.

Is it inertia or self-preservation? Maybe a bit of both. Obviously, being tired can lead to inertia. By not expending energy to spank him, I’m giving myself a chance to recover. Lion, too. I don’t imagine he’d have too much fun being swatted when his gut is angry. Plus, I think inertia happens unconsciously. I am fully aware that I’m putting off spanking. The problem starts if I don’t spank him Monday without a reason. Believe me, I’m fighting hard against inertia.

We’re also entering the time frame in which Lion starts to be more interested in sex. I’m not saying he’ll be horny necessarily. He’s just thinking about it. Rubbing my weenie will feel very nice but may or may not result in an erection. If he does get one, he may not be able to hold it long. This is the period of time that I don’t think really counts as part of the wait, but I haven’t figured out a way to qualify it. He might say he’s been waiting 14 days, but for the first six, he might not have been horny at all. Doesn’t that mean he’s only been waiting nine days? So far, the only reliable way we have of counting is to start the day after an orgasm. Who’s to say he isn’t super horny on day four?

We’ve been pretty boring lately. Puppy, puppy, puppy, blah, blah, blah. Not much on the sex front. I thank you for your patience.

[Lion — My interest in sex comes back after a day or so. My ability to get hard may or may not return so soon. Today is the 5th day and I have definite sexual thoughts.]

Willow is ten weeks old today. Lion says he thinks she’s teething. Ya think? I have bruises and tooth holes all over my hands and arms. She has also chomped down on my nipples, to Lion’s delight. Who knew we had a BDSM puppy? I’d put up with all the finger chewing if she would just sleep longer. I’m tired of the middle of the night pee runs and 5 or 5:30 “I’m awake, Mom!” This morning as I was getting ready for work and she was snoozing, I nudged her a few times to interrupt her sleep. Of course, she ignored me.

Lion was still feeling under the weather yesterday. I had my doctor’s appointment, went to Costco, had several months of dirt washed off the car, picked up prescriptions, and headed home with a Costco rotisserie chicken for dinner. He was hungry, so he ate it all. Only afterward did he tell me he hadn’t been feeling well. I figured if he couldn’t handle the chicken, we could always save it for tonight, but he was excited about it. Anyway, as he was dealing with another round of tummy blahs, I started feeling tummy blahs. I have no idea what caused mine. Aside from being tired, I was fine all day. Maybe we both need to go on one of those cleansing regimens. If there’s nothing in there, it can’t cause any problems.

Needless to say, with both of us feeling gross at one point or another, there hasn’t been any thoughts of sex. We’ve been holding hands while we watch TV. We’ve both been snoozing off and on. Aside from being chewed on and chasing the puppy from things she gets into, we’ve been pretty boring lately. Oh well. Things will pick up again soon, I’m sure.

I forgot Monday’s “just because” spanking entirely. I had so many other things to do when I got home, and it didn’t even cross my mind. I may even have had to move the spanking bench during my chores, and it didn’t jog my memory. It’s just as well. We weren’t feeling all that great, and it would make no sense to spank a sick Lion. Talk about kicking a man while he down. At this point, I think I’ll cancel Thursday’s. Even if Lion feels better, will he really be 100%? Will I? It makes more sense to cancel it. Besides, if I don’t cancel it, I’ll likely forget again. Although it’s basically the same thing, I think canceling is better than forgetting. I don’t know. It feels like I’m actively taking charge by canceling. Forgetting just feels like inertia is taking over. Unless we still feel yucky, the beatings will resume on Monday.

My boss and I are currently competing to see which one of us will fall asleep first. So far, it’s a tie. We’ve both been zoned out for an indeterminate amount of time. She had a long day with her two dogs yesterday, and, of course, we have the puppy to run after. I did manage to get a few other things done yesterday.

I think I started melting the wax around 10:30 yesterday morning. I didn’t start waxing Lion until around 2:30. We were snoozing most of the time while we waited. It only took about an hour to yank all the fur out of Lion. I’m sure I missed some spots, but I got both sides done. He was only furry on his balls, in his crack, and above his balls. His chest and pits were not that bad, plus it’s a flatter area than his balls, so it’s easier to wax. I consider it a win that it took me such a short time.

Sometime after his shower, we both started feeling sick. Our guts were not happy. I have no idea what we ate, but we’re assuming it was food-related. I think we both ate the same things. I don’t know how bad Lion felt, but I had random bouts of agony. We ate egg noodles for dinner. That’s our go-to when one of us isn’t feeling well. It’s a calm dinner to help us recover. I still don’t feel all that great today, but it’s nothing like yesterday.

Tonight is supposed to be a just because spanking. I’d hate to postpone it, but I may have to, depending on how I feel. I also have to change the bed tonight. I don’t know how Lion feels at the moment either. Things can change in the blink of an eye.

It will take a few days before Lion is looking for love. That doesn’t mean we can’t snuggle, and when we snuggle, I usually let my hand wander.

On Saturday night, I don’t know which had more of an effect on getting him excited enough for an orgasm. I know he likes anal, but he seemed almost giddy that we’d be using the timer. Maybe it adds another element of surprise. He knows I could stop at any time after I edge him. Now I can stop any time the timer goes off. There’s added pressure to make it to the edge before time runs out. Beat the clock, have an orgasm. I can see how that would be exciting. [Lion — It is!]

Lion didn’t get excited for me last night. He said he’d been horny in the afternoon. It was late, and I don’t think he’d snoozed. We decided to try earlier today. We have some errands to run, and then we’ll do just that. The waxing will wait until tomorrow.

I think I’ll shove the small NJoy butt plug in for a while before I play with Lion. That will give him some time to get used to it before I try to get him hard. If he can’t get hard with it in, I can always remove it and try again. I might even be tempted to move it in and out a few times. I don’t know if that will help him, but it will amuse me.

I’d really like to give Lion an orgasm. Obviously, I can’t if he’s not even getting to the edge. I’ve wondered if I should set a timer when I suck him. We tried that a few years ago. I’d give him a hand job and set a one-minute timer to see if he could come before the timer went off. Naturally, the more we did it, the closer he got until he came. I could do the opposite this time. If he doesn’t show any signs of getting to the edge in ten minutes, we stop. I don’t know if ten minutes is fair. I don’t know how long I normally suck him. I think we can find a suitable number if I decide to do it. Of course, I could do it the same way we did in the past. I could set it for five minutes, see how far he gets, and then keep repeating for five-minute intervals until he comes or breaks.

There has to be a way to get Lion going again.
