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.

Finally - X

When I jumped in to this wonderful idea that CeeCi began, I knew that this day would come. It’s here “X Day”. Now I wanted to really try this one. Things I am grateful for that begin with X… Hummm… At first all I could come up with was xylophone but to be perfectly honest, while I am sure that the xylophone is a fine instrument, I am really not grateful for it. So here is my shot at it!

Xander- This is my son’s cat. And yes that is how you spell it. LJ was a big Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan and I believe he got the name came from that show.

X-rays – Very helpful invention. While it can’t exactly look into you soul it can give you a clear picture of injured bones and other potential problems throughout our bodies.

Xerses defeat – The Greeks beat this guy there by saving western culture. That’s kinda nice.

X-axis – As a math teacher, knowing about this does come in handy.

X-files – Now while I am a big TV fan I never watched the X-files but my sister is the biggest fan of the show ever. I have to be grateful for anything that gives her that much pleasure, even if I think she is a nut about it.

X-chromosome – I am very grateful that I have two. I couldn’t deal with a Y myself. I am also grateful for the half of the population that can personally deal with a Y-chromosome. I guess it takes all kinds.

Xanthippe – This was the nagging wife of Socrates. In other words she was a brat! One of our own!

Xerox – Now this one really makes my job easier! Although many times I have felt that the copier’s sole purpose was to teach me how to cuss!

Xmas – This one used to make me so mad until my dad explained that X was the Greek symbol for Christ. I still prefer to see Christmas written out because I don’t think everyone’s father explained this to them and I don’t want people appearing to X Christ out of Christmas. But as long as everyone understands…


  1. What a smart bunch of bloggers we are! I learned all about xenodophy from Theresa, the Xerox Star from the coding queen SUZQ-t and now I can say I know the name of Mrs. Socrates and can be grateful to Xerses. I wonder what Paul. is going to wow and amaze us with...and I still have a couple of sites to visit. I'm going to bed much smarter tonight than when I woke up this morning.

    Um, I'm with you about "Xmas" it bothers me too!

    Great list, and I loved your gratitude for the x-chromosome! I don't think I could handle a Y, either... well, unless I'm handling the Coach's Y!

    I just read your ginger tale, too. That was just tooo funny! I'll be back around soon... when things settle down a bit for me.

  3. You did really good! You're smart PK. I don't care what they say!

    Great list!

  4. I really liked this list... great job... I'm one of those guilty of calling it Xmas... always have tended to shorten the word but not the true meaning... the giving spirit...

    Hugs and loves,

  5. Really good list PK! I got the king to, but I think I may have spelled it wrong. Now I'll have to go check!


  6. Great list PK, just a reminder dear girl, fly swatters have other uses.
    Warm hugs,

    Who knew we would learn so much when you started this!

    Thanks for coming by! I hope your work slows down enough for you to write some! I miss you when you can't post often.

    What WHO says??

    It's always the spirit that counts!

    You can always assume that I spell things wrong!

    That's the nearest you have come to a threat! I'm honored!!

    I really look forward to reading more of your work!
