Visiting family as a D/s couple

This is more for those of you in 24/7 (or close) relationships, but anyone is welcome to contribute.

Over Christmas, Sir and I went to visit my family. We agreed beforehand that we wouldn't be following any serious protocol, since it might make my parents uncomfortable (besides which, I am not "out" to them completely), so we kept it to more of a "vanilla boyfriend/girlfriend" level.
We both had a lot of fun, and my family loves Him, but when we got home on the first day back I found myself misbehaving a bit (which is unlike me, since I am not a bratty sub) and figured out I was feeling weird about having spent all that time without our usual level of interaction.

We talked about it, and it seems that I need to work on ways of keeping the D/s side of it alive (or at least in mind) when we're together in situations where I can't be as overt as I usually am with Him.

I'm interested in hearing from others who aren't totally out to family or friends, or who have been in situations where you have to be more discreet for several days running.
Do you have "stealth protocols" for such times? Do you miss having the level of interaction you do when you're alone?

Or, if you just have funny stories from the holidays this is a good place for them!

We aren't "out", but we don't hide it. We just don't do it in front of the family, because it might make them uncomfortable. I totally miss it while we have to be secretive. I whisper to him naughty things while we stand alone together while family might be near.
