I was talking with my favorite Monster, Ana today and during the conversation mentioned that with everything that had been going on and with certain things still in the air, that I hadn't given any thought to initiating another Year end/New Year kick-off "committee punishment" like we had done for the last two years. And before I went much further Ana very casually said that she'd be just fine with being asked to participate again (via slip).
Well, that got me thinking that perhaps I should run it past Rosa after all. It also occurred to me that with Nickki being more willing to be personally active and Jean being OK with that, that perhaps that could lead to Nickki's just doing the punishment she decides upon herself rather than just offering numerical suggestions for Rosa on a Discipline Slip?
And to be honest, it seems that Marta has also gotten very comfortable with the idea of using the slips even though she usually doesn't hand them out without a little encouragement. But once prompted, she usually gets in the spirit. So who knows? Maybe this is just what I need, and rather than feeling all morose over things I can't change, I should take advantage of a pretty willing circle of wonderful people who could liven things up?
