Continuing on yesterday's theme mouse realized how chaotic and disorganized her life was before and even after Daddy came into it. It's hard to imagine but it's really taken her a long time to find her footing and truly trust his lead. It's been a long road accepting his advice on EVERYTHING from grooming, to work, to even how she cleans the house but she's gotta admit, he's been right on with everything.
All that has only furthered her submission to him. Is she perfect? Only to Daddy and that's totally enough for mouse.
The rituals reinforce this now, truth be told mouse found them a waste of time but now understands. The wearing of the plug several hours a day also works for mouse to reinforce her submission to Daddy. The slow changes in the way she dresses and presents herself to the outside world. Jeans are for hiking, sweats are exercise, dresses and skirts are everything else. There are rewards that far outweigh anything negative and mouse will always be respectful to Daddy.
Yes, we tease each other and there's lots of laughter. The approach to housekeeping is the biggest change in mouse. For years she's suffered under the delusion that her chaotic way of cleaning wasn't really cleaning. It was moving mess from room to room to avoid it. Now, cleaning is done practically daily but doesn't take very long. Clothes are clean, the house is clean so it doesn't matter.
No more punishments, no more worrying about punishment; things just seem to chug along. The other day, while Daddy's friend was still in town they discussed mouse as though mouse wasn't in the room. Compliments were paid, innuendo was made, but in the end it was all ok with mouse. After all Daddy has taught mouse that she is nothing but his version of perfect, the gentle ribbing about over-cooked chicken or over-booked schedules she could handle. Later, mouse served dessert and Daddy's friend told him he was lucky to have mouse.
Daddy replied that indeed mouse added a lot to his life.
While doing her rituals, all mouse could think was how thankful she was. All these changes were good and have only made her life feel so much complete.
