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.

Been thinking, Mmmmm....

It’s Tuesday again!! A wonderful day of the week when we can have a good excuse to express out graditude! Here are my M thought…

Mail- I love it, love it, love it!! E or snail, it doesn’t matter! Every time one of you sends me an email I have to smile! Mail is wonderful!!

Main Street- The main street in my little town has 2 banks, a library, a drugstore, a café, an antique shop and three churches. The rail road track runs through the middle of town and we have two whole stoplights. I love it.

Metric system- Could we quit being stupid and just change over already!!

Music- Music is the thing that can bring me to tears quicker than anything. Mostly it will catch me off guard. I love my ipod, it just my music.

Mama- I had the best mother in the world. She petted and spoiled me as a child. Let me get away with murder and a teen and became one of my best friends when I became an adult. She and my children adored each other. I know I will miss her forever.

Marriage- It may be old fashion, but marriage – it does matter. I would love to renew our marriage vows (I know Nick would hate it) but now the promises mean even more to me.

Math - It's what I teach. The only thing you can learn in school that will not change on you no matter what. Science is always changing, how we view history changes, how to write a paper changes, even word spellings may change, but math - get it once and it's always the same.

Maple tree- Glorious, beautiful explosions of color! What would Fall be without them?

Manipulation- Okay, it’s supposed to be a bad thing, but who hasn’t used it when necessary?

Masks- I don’t care for real ones but I couldn’t have gotten through life with out the ones I’ve used mentally.

Mouth- To talk, to eat, to give and receive pleasure. A beautiful smile, soft lips, oh there are so many wonderful thing about our mouths.

Mountains- Mountains have been the backdrop of my life. They are not only beautiful and peaceful but they offer towering strength and security to me.

    I like being married too - we're in the minority here, I'm afraid - how sad! And I agree about Maths - there's something lovely about the logic of numbers!

    Great list... except for the Metric system. lol... you should get 10 spanks (that's 31.479 metric spanks) for such a suggestion!

    -Todd & Suzy

  3. Hi Elis! Happy Tuesday! M is the letter, eh? Great list. I, too, enjoy being married. I used to LOVE my hometown main street, too. I agree with Todd & Suzy - 31,479 spanks! How's THAT for conversion? LOL D :)

  4. Elis,
    Happy Tuesday ! I love what everyone is writing for their gratitude list !
    It just adds to the feeling of contentment, to see what someone has that is new and different from mine ! It is so interesting to see what comes to mind !
    Anne Elizabeth

    p.s. I mentioned your name on my Blog today !

  5. Great list today, Elis! I couldn't agree more...metrics rock. I use it in my business and the blank looks I get crack me up. When I convert inches to centimeters and millimeters to come up with my customers answers they'll look at me like I'm Hoodini! No, I'm just lazy and fractions confuse the heck out of me!!

    Thank you for your wonderful list, I'm off to add your link.

    **Big Hugs**

  6. Great list...like Anne Elizabeth said Great mind's think alike. I love how we all have some of the same things, but then the differences are also interesting. Check your mail;)

    Have a great day

  7. Love this list Elis, it's really great.
    Warm hugs,

    Elis~ Did you notice that Diane turned Todd and Suzy's decimal to a comma?? You're gonna be up all night!!!


  9. Great list!

    I couldn't have said it better myself!

  10. I know this post is really really old but I couldn't let that crack about the metric system go unchallenged. LOL. The metric system is used wayyyy to often in scientific terms and I would feel as though I were in living in a scientific HELL if the U.S. every actually did switch to metrics. I LOVE inches, feet and yards, ounces, quarts, gallons and pounds thank you. (0=

    I hope you get this but if not - at least I got it out of my system - Hehehehe

  11. TJ,
    You have discovered the lure of blogs - to be able to get what we what to say off out chest! I still like the metric system better! LOL!
