I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

Deep sigh...


Mollie is at her camp, LJ and Colin are back in their beloved New York City, and once again Nick and I have our empty nest. I love those kids, I love seeing them, but as long as they’re happy where they are and getting on with their lives I am perfectly content just being here with Nick.

I feel like I’m coming back, my cold is finally fading and summer is here (well 4 teacher work days, but those hardly count). I’m going to have time to read and write and still do a few things around the house.  

The ideas of dieting and fitness have completely gone out the window. Between being sick, having Mollie here for a couple of weeks and the horrible end of school stress I just haven’t giving it a thought.  Nick has, but he has been kind and understanding about these distractions.  I don’t think that’s going to last, however. I hope he does get tough again – I have a wedding to get ready for! So while summer is for fun, it doesn’t have to be for eating.  But no matter what it’s SUMMER!

      I want LJ to be proud of the way I look when we go to the wedding. If necessary I'll just stand beside Mollie then no one will notice me.

  3. I'm a little jealous of to have empty nest.... what I would give for it just once a month. Only once!

    PK; enjoy your summer vacation. Enjoy your empty house and enjoy Nick. It is always easier to lose weight when we are in a positive mind position .. without stress.
    I keep my fingers crossed.

      The empty nest is much better than I thought it would be - love seeing the kids but love being on our own too.

  6. PK,
    I'm happy that you are feeling better and the end of term.
    If your Summer gets a little much for you, send some to Cornwall as ours seems somewhat reluctant.
    Love and warm hugs,
    Paul.

      Today was hot, but it's been really cool up until now here too. Strange spring.

  8. I saw a pin the other day, there is a man holding a belt, and he says "if you don't behave I am going to put the paddle away". That would be a good incentive for me to lose weight.
    Sorry I haven't been around lately. I am so impressed that you are able to blog even in the midst of chaos. I just shut down.
    Love ya

      If I couldn't blog in the chaos I would go nuts for sure! It's my relaxation, my connection to friends - I think it's my anti-depression drug. Love seeing you here.

  9. Enjoy your holydays, PK.
    I agree with Mon Lisa, you'll find losing weight all the more easier with the stress gone.

    Hugs

      We usually get 8 weeks off for summer. Because of a strange change in schedule we have nearly 11 weeks off! I'm so happy!

    1. Hey Jan,
      I just read about your visit with Ami, what fun! Summer JUST arrived. Today in the 80's, but we've had a cool spring. Hope summer makes it there soon.
