I’ve had a very interesting week. Had LJ and Collin here, loved my boys being home but having 2 more people in the house brings its own brand of chaos. Mollie had a friend over for a day or so too. Snow kept everyone inside. We had only about 4 inches here but unlike most of our snows, which are followed the next day by 50 degree weather, it stayed COLD. We’ve missed 4 days of school this week and if we go on Friday it will be with a 3 hour delay. The boys made it back to NY Wednesday with just a little delay. They always seem happy to get here and happy to head back so I think that’s pretty good.
With all these people here Nick and I have still managed to talk just a bit, nothing major. In fact I think it was just a few quick words in the kitchen one day. He mentioned something about spanking, just a passing reference, and I said something like “I didn’t think we did that anymore.” Nick seems surprised by what I said but we didn’t have the time or privacy for any more. I didn’t want it to turn in to a big discussion anyway.
The next day I got an email asking me for my thoughts. Poor Nick, sometimes he makes this request and he gets a book. I didn’t have a book in me. I was too uncertain about what I wanted. So he got a short paragraph with no specific request, just some of my feelings and my confusion and my doubts.
Since then he has emailed me several times. It’s all I’ve really needed. Not making a big deal of anything but just acknowledging that this is still a part of our lives. I’ve felt better these last few days. Then this morning I got the following email.
Have you been trying to earn a spanking? If you don't know what I am talking about, go take a shower and look for a nice, clean, fluffy, dry towel! To be fair maybe you should ask Grace what Bossman would consider to be an appropriate response. Then we can figure out when.
He seemed to think that being off work for 5 days would have given me time to do a little laundry which would have give him something besides a hand towel to dry off with after his shower this morning. Ya think? LOL!
We found ourselves alone this afternoon so I did get spanked. He wasn’t mad, it was just meant to get my attention. And it got my attention. I appreciate his reaction. I guess it would be a little easier for him to just be annoyed and not say anything. Instead it turned Wednesday into a really good afternoon for both of us. It gives me hope.
