All my submissive and service-oriented friends out there, what do you think about this: Who takes care of your D/M/O (whatever you call them) when you can't? I think this question is really aimed at folks in 24/7 arrangements, but I welcome anyone's thoughts.
The thing is, I'm the caretaker here. My heart is to serve and care for Sir/Master/Daddy, and that is when I am happiest, and what I do best. But when I'm ill - as in really ill like back in January when I had pneumonia and this past week - I can't do my job.
Then, not only does Sir get stuck taking care of Himself, but also O/our son, and heaven help Him - me too. (And I'm not a very good patient.)
Why don't we have a network of service-oriented people who can help care for the Master's of slaves who are unable to do so themselves temporarily? You know, like Merry Maids or something along those lines? They can pull your file when you call them, find out what your Sir needs, wants, and prefers, and jump in to save the day.
Just like the ones in the picture here, at least that's a place to start...but I'm open to other ideas too.
