The End Of Summer Cleaning Weekend
My wife and I are very much alike is so many wonderful ways. However, having a tolerance for clutter and general household organization are not on that list. Let’s just say that my wife is able to tolerate clutter and disorganization much better than I can.
In fact, those differences have been the cause of many arguments in our marriage. They are also a big reason why we chose to adopt discipline in our relationship. Understand that I am organized and rarely leave a mess – so this is not about cleaning up after me, it’s about everyone cleaning up after themselves and keeping things in order.
Now, I must say that my wife has done a great job of keeping up with this responsibility since we have agreed on the consequences for ignoring it. She has done an amazing job recently, but having a clutter-free and well organized house 100% of the time does not enthuse her nearly as much as it does me.
So, this weekend I have proclaimed it “End of Summer Cleaning Weekend.” Imagine her excitement. We both have our list of around the house “must do’s” and so we’ll let you know how it goes.
Just as quick note to let you know how our end of the summer cleaning is going. Well I have managed to keep up so far. We (I do mean we) didn’t get as much done today as we planned but managed to get the two biggest items on our lists done. I wasn’t sure if he was going to make it, but he pulled it out.
After getting up early to make sure I had enough time, I got to spend time laying across his lap for a much needed bottom rub this afternoon. No spanking today, but tomorrow could bring anything. More to come, I am sure.
Well, the weekend did not end without my wife getting a discipline spanking – let’s call it a minor discipline spanking – a 2 on a scale of 1 to 5. Wait, we don’t have a spanking scale – maybe now we do. That sounds like another post. Anyway, I think the “2” made my point this weekend.
