Home with my man

I feel like I’ve been away forever. Retirement hasn’t given me the unending time to blog that I had envisioned. But I’ve just gotten back from a wonderful trip full of time in the sun, great conversations and wonderful food! Definitely my kind of trip!

But I was still happy to get home to Nick. It seems we’ve been
apart for a very long time. After his mom broke her hip everyone took turns sitting with her in the hospital. Nick and I did a lot of passing one another with mostly a, ‘hey’ or, ‘I’ll see you later.’ MIL is in rehab now and doing well physically, but Alzheimer’s is a relentless bitch and we all still have to deal with that.

Nick and I were really happy to be able to spend Saturday together. We went shopping and I got him some Adirondack chairs for him for Father’s Day. While we had the trailer hitched up we also took our broken down pool furniture to the dump – not the most thrilling part of my Saturday, but I still got to be with Nick. After that we still had the afternoon to ourselves.

I told him that my sunburn was stinging a little and that I sure could use some lotion rubbed on it, and as long as he was rubbing… I also pointed out that while my shoulders and chest had gotten too red, other parts of me definitely needed color.  The sweet man was willing to help with both. I entered the bedroom wearing a recently acquired tiara – I wanted the man to know he was dealing with someone of royal standing. He thought it was extremely appropriate, and I was indeed treated like a queen.

I also realized that I am officially a spanking wimp! I just can’t take it like I used to. Strange, I used to be able to take anything he could throw at me and he would always stop way before I wanted him to. No longer! It might be different if it was for real, but just for play I’m thinking we should stick to patty-cake.

After I did get a little color I was ready to move on to bigger and better things and we did. I love afternoon loving! You can finish up and go right into a well-deserved, loving induced, coma/nap.

I am very happy to be home with my man. Traveling is always fun, but for me – a hermit at heart – few things beat being able to stay home writing and puttering around. Hopefully, I’m going to be here a little more often, I hope you will too.

Welcome home Queen PK. Glad you received a royal welcome back from Nick. Sounds like you had heaps of fun whilst away.

Hope your M.I.L. improves with her hip quickly. I agree alzheimers is a cruel bitch.
Hugs Lindy xx

I dont know Alzheimers personally but i am very familiar with dementia. It lives in my home so i feel you. Welcome home. I'm sure you'll get back your spanking bottom and will be able to take anything again in no time!

Hi PK, glad you had a wonderful time away. There's no place like home though and what a fabulous welcome home and reunion :)

Glad your MIL is progressing physically. I feel you on the alzheimers also, something we are dealing with with Mum.

Home is where your heart is. That just about describes you, PK. Glad your Nick was able to help with your tan. You are not a wimp. You just need more practice!

Hugs From Ella

Glad you are back. You were missed but happy you had a wonderful time and Nick gave you a perfect welcome home.

Good you hear your MIL is doing well. I don't know too much about Alzheimer's disease but Dementia I do. She is in my thoughts.

The tiara sound most appropriate in that situation. You are royalty in bogland for sure. We get tougher with regular use!! Love in the afternoon is heaven.

Tiara's are meant for exactly that purpose, however I think I'd be wearing it around the house all the time. Having fun in the afternoon sounds absolutely delicious! It's wonderful when distance actually does make the heart grow fonder. Nice to read that all is going well.

I'm sorry about the Alzheimer's. It is a horrific illness. It's losing everything in that person little by little. Ugh.
I'm glad the rehab is going well however!
Glad you are home with your man and having fun playing and using color as your guide! I'm a whimp too!

The welcome was very, very nice!

As for what I can take - for me it depends on how 'real' the spanking is. If I've seriously done something I can take anything. Playing, I can't take much.

At 9:58 PM, Blogger PK said...

There is no place like home! MIL still knows us and that means a lot.

At 9:59 PM, Blogger PK said...

It was a great trip, but one of my friends was missing. Maybe I'll see her next year.

At 10:01 PM, Blogger PK said...

I do love being home. I'm not sure practice would do it for me.

At 10:02 PM, Blogger PK said...

I missed being out here too. I'm glad MIL has so much family around here.

At 10:02 PM, Blogger PK said...

I did feel royal wearing it and Nick was impressed.

Afternoons are the best time ever - one of the joys of having an empty nest.

At 10:07 PM, Blogger PK said...

I guess these days a little color goes a long way.

I forgot this isn't Facebook...wanted to hit the "like" button :-)

What a fun welcome home, PK! :) Loved that you had on a tiara, and that your Nick helped you to match your bottom with your sunburn! Spanky love in the afternoon, followed by snuggling and a nap sounds lovely too! Happy for you on all accounts!

So glad that your MIL is doing much better. Alzheimer's is so tough to watch a loved on go through. As hard as it is, there are moments when a lack of filter allows for some very special moments, if you can spot them amongst the hard stuff. Giant hugs and love sent your way. Your MIL is in my prayers.

<3 Katie
