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.

Calm weekend

I had a peaceful weekend. Nick was off golfing and I stayed home to write. I’m getting used to the lovely boot and hobbling around. I saw the orthopedist last week and he says I should be able go to a much smaller boot in a couple of weeks. And that I may be able to lose it all together by the end of June when I have an important trip planned.

I’ve been doing well in my weight loss efforts. I’m down just over seventeen pounds since they said I had diabetes. But this foot thing is not great for the exercise part of the program. I guess if the truth be told this weekend hasn’t been so great for it either. I tend to slip a little with what I should be eating when Nick’s not home. But my sugar is still hovering around 110 so I haven’t been too bad.

I managed to do one thing I’d promised myself I’d do this weekend
 I finished another book! This is my first non-Cassie book and it’s a whole different process. Cassie’s easy, all I have to do is type. This one I had to write.  I like it and I hope those of you who read it will too. I just sent it to a dear beta reader yesterday and then I’ll be sending it to my personal editors – Nick and my sister, before I ever send it to Blushing Books to see if they’ll accept it. Cross your fingers for me.

End-of-grade testing begins this week. Not my favorite time of year but since I can say to myself it’s the last time I’ll have to do them, they aren’t really bothering me. It’s been very interesting watching Mollie during her first year. I’m amazed that she can tell me so much about each and every one of her students. It’s like hearing a mother talk about them and their achievements. Listening to her makes me doubly sure it’s time to retire. I still enjoy my students, I truly want them to do well, but there is no way I can pretend to match the enthusiasm she shows for each of her students. I think teachers do get to a point when they should hang in up and I'm there.

Sorry there wasn’t anything on topic to share – though I guess there shouldn’t be if Nick’s not home. Hopefully there will be something soon.

    1. I was so nice this weekend to be able to really spend some time writing without anyone around. I have several more books in my head fighting to get out.

  8. Glad you had such a productive weekend. Everyone, including me, is excited about a new book!

    I love this time of year, with the whole summer stretched out before you. However, I too, have not been on the straight and narrow with healthy eating. It is time to face the music. And the scale.

    1. I love this time of year too, but I'm really seeing beyond - I have summer, then three and a half months of work and then freedom as far as the eye can see!

    1. I love my husband to death, but I like the occasional weekend when he's off with friends and I'm on my own. As long as they don't happen too often.
