Yesterday my list read:
-pay two bills-grocery shopping
-take the bills to the post office
-go to the gym (and workout, not just laze around drinking coffee. This was not stated but obviously implied)
-call about making an appointment for Saturday for him
I also had a bunch of cleaning to do, but this is routine and doesn't get put on my lists, and I had permission to go rummage sale shopping with Mystique(and even buy things! As long as they were things we needed for the house).
I spent the morning cleaning and doing laundry, then picked up Mystique, and dropped off the bills. We went to the gym and worked out. We did the rummage sale thing, just driving around town looking for signs. She got some lamps and I found a kitchen table and chair set which was dirt cheap and seems very nice. I've been looking for one for a few years, so I only hesitated a short while in trying to decide if it was something my Master would like or not. After poking around the rest of the sale items, I offered $40 for the set. The lady there said no, but in a tone that indicated willingness to deal, so I offered $45 and she said yes.
I did the shopping, dropped of Mystique at her house, and completely forgot about making the appointment until she sent me a message asking if I'd done it. "Oh fuck" was my reply.
I called the place, and left a message, but it was after 5 and they had all gone home. Master got home, and I immediately told him I hadn't gotten him the appointment because I left it until too late. He said it was ok, he wasn't mad or upset. I asked if I would be punished and he said no, it was not a big deal. Big or small, though, I still felt guilt because it was on my list and I didn't get it done.
I asked for punishment. He said no. So....I'll just deal with the guilt myself then. I had a fleeting thought of punishing myself, with an unpleasant task or something, but immediately discarded that idea, as it would be going against Master's wishes. He said there would be no punishment, so there will not be.
But, on the plus side, he was extremely happy with my garage sale find. He says it is a good quality table. The old one got dismantled and stored in case we ever need an extra table. It had been given to us by his mom over 20 years ago, and had had 4 generations of Master's family seated around it. Far from a priceless antique, just a plain table, and it was really showing its age (hmm, reminds me of a slave I know-me). The chairs also went into storage.
