I am a complete water snob! There, I am out.. I have confessed to my water snobbery.. I have water delivered, have had since I got pregnant with my son. I don't trust the city water and I know that not all water bottled is a good thing either, but I trust this company. The new house we are moving into has a super techie water filter on the entire house and a private well, so no more water jugs! The jugs are 5 gallons and the water unit is pretty tall, so you have to lift the jugs and turn them over just right or water is on the walls...floors.. you. It can be a mess. I had an accident earlier this year and my back will just never be the same, so I was outlawed from touching the jugs. If one needs to be changed it is my son or Alex and no one else is to mess with them. The last two times that I have messed with the water jugs I was super stressed out. I have a lot going on with my new position at work, selling our home and getting ready to move into our new home. Plus the lovely daily adventures that teenagers bring to life and our monster puppy that eats anything that can't out run him. I just have had a lot going on... So when I came home the other night and I couldn't get my nice cold glass of water because the jug was out.... Grrrrrrr and double grrrrrrrr! I am getting that water one way or another it WILL be mine.
I softly announced we are out of water and could one of the strong men of the house please come fix the situation. (Oh fine, I bellowed we are out of water and was some one going to fix it before I did it myself!) My only response was my daughter yelling down that the guys were not home and could I keep it down she is on a very important call and her friend is crying so she needed her full attention. Well then by all means honey girl go on back to your teenage drama cause I am about to create a full on adult drama of my very own thank you very much.
The one on the right is almost the exact one we have...
I went to the closet we keep the jugs.. I rolled one over to the kitchen and up to the dispenser and went to remove the empty. It's almost like the jug was trying to help me out.. Seriously it wouldn't come off! Maybe the jug thought if I was given more time to rethink this situation I would come to my senses and all would turn out well. Poor sweet water jug...I was just way past coming to my senses at this point, I was going to have my victory... Oh yes, I was. I finally got the jug off and made a decent mess with it, so I took it to the closet and grabbed a dish rag to clean up. Now if I was thinking more clearly I would have waited to clean after I got the other jug on because there is just no way I am going to not make a mess doing this. Alright we are dry (yes we, the dispenser is in this with me now), the floor is dry and I am prying the lid off the new water jug. Just as I am bending down to lift the water jug I hear a gasp from behind me... My daughter must have wrapped up the teenage drama and was now wondering into my adult drama and she didn't want any part of mine. She said as much and ran back up the stairs to be sure she had the distance to stay out of trouble. (Well fine you little trader, just wait until you want another pair of designer shoes!!!)
I GOT THIS....
I got the jug on... Water was literally dripping from my arms, but it was on the dispenser and I did it!! HA!! Victory is mine....And that was the front door that just shut and here comes the guys. I just have to marvel at how my husband always shows up just in time to catch me in the act. My parents don't know a third of the junk I got into as a child, because they didn't have the knack of timing like Alex. That is my theory anyway.
I have had several people ask me if I have ever asked Alex to spank me, for stress release or guilt. I can honestly say I have never verbally asked him to spank me. Have I gotten him to spank me to release stress or guilt? Well, I had never thought about spanking as anything but a punishment until recently. This water jug incident just happen last Friday so this question made me stop and really think.. I have never verbally asked for a spanking but I sure as heck have made sure I got one. Sigh.
Alex and I had our re-connection meeting on Sunday and we talked about this question and what I had concluded from the Friday incident. He agrees, I haven't lost my mind but I definitely need to lower my stress and if that means asking for help or him keeping me closer for a while it needs to happen. I think in the end we agreed to both, but I am just happy he is going to keep a closer eye on me, as I am not sure I have the guts to ask for a trip over his knee.. Now if it was for a fun spanking..... Totally different answer!
