Birthday, to be continued
I really, really wanted to complete my birthday with a wonderful Steve session. But I knew he was torn in several directions, trying to pack his house for a move, preparing the new place (painters, etc.), work, his daughter, and so on. Still, I hoped that maybe, just maybe, it could happen anyway.
However… when we spoke last night, he felt bad about it, and insisted on dropping by today, just for a short time. I said no, let’s wait, you’ve got too much to do, I don’t want to you be more stressed, I don’t want to put more on your plate. “I want this on my plate,” he said. So I said OK.
He turned up on my doorstep at 11:00 AM, and when I opened the door, my mouth dropped open. He was loaded down with a vase of tulips and a cake box.
And look at the pretty card…
I was overwhelmed. I didn’t expect any of this. I can’t believe he took the time to go get these things, even when all the stuff he has going on. When I told him he didn’t have to, that it could wait.
He couldn’t stay long — just long enough to catch up a bit and for us to scarf down a slice of cake apiece (Red Velvet! Yum!). No spanking. But he said that’s coming. My birthday is To Be Continued, still.
Not sure when it will be, since next Monday is his actual moving day. It may be two weeks. But at least I know it is coming. That things will get back on track. That I will have my joyous connection and fulfillment, my stress release, my top, once again.
Happy me. 🙂
