I was home today, as usual, working on my business work as well as doing my normal housewife duties; picking up, doing dishes, laundry, vacuuming. Since I am usually alone in the house I like to dress in something sweet and feminine. Today I had on a simple skirt and blouse along with hose and heels, but without make-up. Just before Linda called to tell me that her mother was done with her doctor’s appointment and they were going to stop home for lunch in about 15 minutes.
Her mother knows nothing about our WLM lifestyle or that I am the real wife in our relationship. But if I didn’t do something, fast she was about to find out. Linda knows that I am usually dressed up in something feminine while home, thus the heads up call. I just barely had time to put into the microwave oven a container of vegetable soup that I had made and frozen over the weekend, and then run into the bedroom to change clothes. I am glad now that I hadn’t put make-up on as there would not have been time to remove all traces of it.
Linda was smiling as she came in the door just as I was coming out of the bedroom. She knew how close of a call I just had. All she said was “aren’t you glad I phoned first?”
I am sure that someday there will not be the phone call first and I will be discovered. I really don’t mind some of our friends knowing, but I am not ready for family members to know about this. I think we need to discuss this and reach a decision on what we are going to do and who we are going to tell.
