Sunday was truly interesting. I never mark, but I do have few cane stripes as well as a few bruises. Marks are not something Nick tries for. In fact early on, when I did bruise, I often hid them from him fearing he would stop. But I don’t worry about that now. So when I mentioned today that I did have a few places he was surprised and immediately took my pants down in the kitchen to see. He checked them out thoroughly. I grinned back at him and told him that they were perfect – they didn’t really hurt, but at the same time I could feel it when I sat. He just shook his head and laughed at me.
The term ‘take your medicine’ comes to mind. As a child I hated taking yucky tasting medicine, but I sure did like feeling better after the yucky part was over. I really didn’t want a real spanking Sunday, I tried to tease Nick into a more fun, sexy spanking. But as I told you, he wasn’t having any of it. I did not like the spanking, I did not like the implement choice, and I despise the cane, but the results - I feel better.
Nick said something Sunday that echoed a line in Annie story ‘Another Chance’. In the story Bill wrote some ruled, the last one being, “You are 57 years old; you KNOW what the rules are.” To me Nick said, as he began spanking, “I don’t really have to say a lot right now, do I?” He had gone over what he wanted me to do the week before, and I had listened, I just hadn’t done it. So basically he was saying, ‘You know what the rules are.’ Yeah, I guess I do. (BTW, I’m not 57, but it’s not far off.)
I know Nick won’t micromanage me and I don’t want him to. He want’s me in bed by eleven and I know that would be good for me. I don’t think he’ll care if I’m crawling in bed at 11:10, but he wouldn’t be happy with 2:00 AM. He want me healthy and happy and around for a while. Getting the weight off is what I have to do. Not to look better (though I will) but to avoid diabetes and more joint problems.
While I’m not officially joining the ‘Get off your butt’ challenge; I will be trying to do just that. If I joined and didn’t follow through I’d get very down on myself, which would do me no good. But I will be cheering my friends on!
