Each and every Sunday (no, not for religious reasons) I am not allowed to go on the internet (yes, this one sucks!), nor am I allowed to pick up my cell phone (house phone is fine). I know that if were to mention this rule to people I know outside of the internet, I would get that shock look and comments like: "I would never let a man control me". These words are what is often times spit out when men show dominance over women, consensual of course.
Oh the horror!
However, as many of you have (or hope to have) Dd/ttwd in you marriage, I know I can talk about the rules we don't discuss outside of our homes. At first, I remember when this rule (I call it the "no tech day rule") was first implemented. I thought, how in the world am I going to explain to my family and friends that I cannot answer the cell phone or Skype when asked? It was simple, I didn't. I just learned to say 'no' to them. I think this was part of why he wanted me to take one day off. That and he wanted me all to himself (perfectly fine with me).
Does this mean I am 100% okay with this rule? No, I am not. To say otherwise would make me a liar. There are Sunday's when all I want to do is stay in my pajamas and catch up on my favorite blogs. But, I know what he is doing. He is making sure I give my body and mind one day of relaxation. I am free to do anything I want on that day, just not cell and internet. Otherwise this will happen:
Not the good kind either
So tell me, what is a rule that you must follow that is hard to follow or understand? Feel free to email me if you would rather remain anonymous.
