Snake has been completely overwhelmed by work this week. His Muggle life is very busy on a regular basis since we own our own business, but this week has included an event that just pushed everything even more. Adding to our usual dance classes, stuff around the house and his father trying to make him feel guilty and he just hasn’t had time to post. So I thought I’d give everyone a quick update.
His PA is healing so well that he is making me jealous. When I got my belly button pierced, it got infected and it was six months before I was supposed to change the jewelry. In my daily inspection of the PA, I can see that it is really already healed. Excluding a couple of times that the ring got turned sideways, he hasn’t had any discomfort in over a week. And today is the two week mark.
His Steelheart has shipped and should be here very soon. We figured out that he has been in some sort of chastity device since December 2013 with just a few breaks for trips. He’s really noticing the “off” feeling of being free while he’s been healing and is definitely looking forward to getting locked up again. I told him that he had to strip when he was home and no one else was around to try to get some of the subby feelings back. It has helped but it just isn’t the same. But, even when he is locked up again, I decided the clothes-free zone will continue. It gives me more opportunities to play…
Watching his dad work his way through getting older, we have decided that we will never get old. We might get older, but we will continue to try new things and be adventurous. We know that his stepmom quilts a lot and loves to bake. We have no idea what his dad does all day. Other than nap. And apparently wait for Snake to come for lunch once a week. Snake cancelled on them, for one of the first times ever, due to work. Snake could just feel the waves of disappointment from them.
They are snowbirds and we are their winter home. After Snake’s mom died, his dad married someone he had known since high school. She had stayed there and he had a house here. They decided to split their time in the different climates. During the “summer” half, they have friends who are all retired. They can go to each other’s houses and eat pie and chat every night. We have jobs and other commitments. It makes them feel ignored because sitting in a circle and eating pie while talking constantly is not our thing and not possible with life and responsibilities we have.
We also won’t go to church with them. His father never went until he remarried but now has decided that his greatest failure was not instilling this in his children. Snake is one of the most moral people I have ever met. We’re just not religious. Church has become their thing. I respect that. He just doesn’t respect that it isn’t ours. Our daughter went to visit them about a year and a half ago. They took her to their church where the entire sermon was about how young people need to go to church and be part of that community. She was the only person under 50 in the place. It certainly wasn’t directed at her. 🙂
I often wonder how Snake came from his family. He is more liberal than when we first met but his parents were prudes. I came from the family where just about anything was ok as long as you paid your own way and didn’t hurt anyone. Snake’s mother redacted the book “Airport” before he could read it because “the sex scenes didn’t add anything to the plot.” My mother let me read anything and just told me to ask questions if I didn’t understand something. Snake’s dad gave him a talk about STDs and told him to “keep it zipped.” My mom took me to get on the pill. It’s a wonder I didn’t fry Snake’s brain more than I did when we started dating.
You can just imagine the reactions that our daughter has gotten from his family at large to her piercings, tattoos and sexual “phase” (she’s bi, must be a “phase” according to them). You would think we had raised the next Hannibal at the beginning. 🙂 I think there is hope for them, though. They have started spending time with her alone and I think they have realized that she is really epic. I just don’t think Snake will be sharing news of his PA anytime soon.
I guess all of that is really to say that I have an amazing husband. He takes care of his parents, he takes care of his children, he takes care of me and he takes care of his employees. We are best friends, business partners and kinky lovers. The more we push, the more we want to do. And we’ll leave the getting old and naps to other people.
