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.

Life goes on

Mollie had another milestone yesterday. It was about to pass unnoticed. She turned 15 ½ yesterday. Normally a half birthday is not that big a deal. Ahhhh… but this one is important I was informed! As of yesterday Mollie can drive after 9:00 PM, as long as we are with her. Something forbidden to drivers a mere 15 years old! She wanted to head to TCBY for a late treat with her behind the wheel. Nick wasn’t too receptive to the idea. He just didn’t see the necessity to go out. Now Nick is usually the one giving into Mollie while I am more firm but with another pleading look from Mollie and I decided I would let her take me.

Nick laughed at me and said “You wouldn’t spoil the girl would you?” He said that to me?? Really as much as Nick spoils her and me I feel it is only necessary to pass on a little bit. In the end Nick came with us. TCBY was closed but Sonic was just down the street so we got our treat after all. It was really a pretty nice evening.


One more thing – OWWWWWW!!! Now that is usual a nice thing for a spanko to say but not today. I have something in common with Grace. Nick and I too have a childless vacation planned for this summer. We are getting together with friends that we haven’t seen in forever, and I want to look good too. So since I have been going to the gym for a year I thought it would be a good idea to go to one of the many classes offered. I went to a core strengthen class. I saw that it was only a half hour class; surely I could handle anything for a half hour. I mean C.C is getting up at the crack of dawn and exercising. I can do this too.

So 5:30 PM yesterday afternoon I confidently stroll into the class. At 6:00PM, I think it was about 18 to 20 hours later I staggered out. At that moment I was just grateful to be alive. I actually made it up the stairs with the vague notion of walking on the track. I usually end my workout by walking around the track 8 times. I walked around once, found a chair and rested until I thought I could stand again and then I came home, feeling a little rough but alright.

But today, as the day progressed, I can’t move! EVERYTHING hurts!! I can’t lift my arms, my back muscles are screaming, I don’t even want to talk about the way my thighs feel. I would like to know who moved the toilet so darn low!?! I went back to the gym today and did a light workout to try to loosen up but tonight I needed Mollie to help me out of my chair. I am ready to throw in the exercise towel. My new plan is to grow 5 inches.


  1. Did Mollie ask who the old lady in the chair was?

    Oh... and your plan to grow 5 inches? My mother once told one of her younger sisters that, and my aunt's reply was, "Oh ___, I don't think you're going to grow anymore!" I swear, I have NEVER seen my mother laugh so hard!


    PS Keep up the good work, PK!

    Oh my PK, do not even think to mention "core exercises" anywhere around me! Pure torture!

    As for Mollie...well what a wonderful Mom! And they do remember those special moments!

  3. almost sweet 16 :-)

    as for the exercise, all of you going out there and giving it your best to exercise to make yourselves feel better is truly inspiring...I need to find something I can do at home - and then find the energy to follow through and do it once the children are in bed...keep up the good work! :-)

    so did you go back for a second round of the class???

    I don't think I would. I hate pain.

    So where's the childless trip to? You and Grace getting together behind my back or something?


  5. Yesterday morning we concentrated on legs in Boot Camp. I kept thinking to myself, what kind of an idiot does squats and lunges at 6am. Apparently, this one. The push-ups and the crunches make me cuss and the running on the treadmill, well that just sucks, but you know what? I have more energy now than I've had in a long, long time! So, don't give up, you can do it. You don't have to go to class every time it's offered, but do give it another chance.

    Here's something it took me a long time to learn about exercise classes. If you're one of the older participants Do Not Try To Keep Up With The Youngsters! It's just not worth it. They'll kick your butt every time.

    How cool that you let Mollie drive you to get ice cream! Do you think she's going to be a better driver than, um, her brother?

    I hope you're moving easier today!


  6. Just walking twice a day is enough for me! At 5'1 i can understand wanting to grow a few inches!

  7. If only it was as easy as growing a few inches. You all are making me tired just listening to your workouts. I might have to go lie down for a bit.
    It's such an exciting time for a kid to be a driver. Has she asked you for a car yet, because of course ALL her friends are getting cars. Anyway, that's the story we heard at our house.

  8. I just LOVE that we are all going on vacation! What a fun summer! And how cool that we can go with NO kids! Those are the best kind of vacation. Since I asked Eva, I'll ask you....where ya goin? LOL

    Don't get me wrong, I love going places with my kids...NOT! They are bored easily, they complain a lot and they want to be entertained every single second! Kidless vacation....I can't WAIT!

    But I'm glad you took that class. I was thinking of trying that but thanks to your warning, I'm steering clear! I want to look good but I don't want to kill myself. I'm with Eva, I HATE pain! I'm really thinking that all this exercise is for the dogs. Give me a sofa, a laptop and a remote and I'm a very happy camper....LOL

    Love you!

    Hehe, no pain no gain PK, stick with it you can do it. I remember only too well the difference between your own workout and those class workouts. There is no mercy there but boy do you know you have worked hard.

    Well done and don't give up it is worth it!


  10. Glad Mollie is 15 and 1/2. Now you can have ice cream at 9pm!

    So what is core stregthening exactly?

    Well you may or may not know, but today is Marcus' birthday and I took his spanking. There were a ton of "to grow on ones." By morning I should be taller. I'll let you know if it works as a diet tip!


  11. PK!

    I have sooooo been there! I hate that! Such great intentions! Such freakin' pain! Awful and you described it so well. Yikes!

    Let me think of something for Fantasy Friday. How long does it have to be? What's the target word count?

    Oh, man, I keep thinking about your workout. I'm so there. I'm trying to get my head around training for a triathlon. Anyway, what you are living is my worst fear. I hate being crippled like that. I went on a waverunner one time, thinking it would be a piece of cake and I couldn't walk for a week. Awful. And the toilet HURT so much. Wow.

    When I start my new workout, I'm going to try to keep you in mind so I don't... blow it.

    Good luck healing, honey!

  12. PK, yes the first few times hurt, I so remember basic training, and I thought that I was fit.
    Don't give up it will get much better.
    Nice story about Mollie, that was kind, she will remember that for the rest of her life.
    Love and warm hugs,

  13. I worked out as well gave Mthc a spanking. Hey thats alot of work with those buns of steel.

    You did a good thing with Molllie.

    *hugs and grins*

  14. The thing to remember about that exercise class and the pain after, is that the first time is the worst. You shouldn't have that much muscle pain in the future, so don't give up--especially if you enjoyed the class!

  15. Marcus,
    Mollie (as usual) had several comments. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!

    I think I am going to survive now but it was touch and go for a while!

    There are tons of things you can do at home. The internet will give you plenty of ideas but making yourself do them - much harder!

    I may go back next week. What kind of a spanko are we if we don't like a little pain?

    Don't get you panties in a bunch. I would never sneak off to meet Grace with out you!

    I don't need exercise to get me cussing. We have a copier at work that does that for me. I don't know if this is giving me more energy or not. Right now I am concentrating on standing up and sitting down!

    Mollie has as one of her goals to be a better driver than her brother and to avoid all tickets. This is a goal I am encouraging! So far she is really doing great!

    Wouldn't that be so much nicer that trying to lose weight?

    Of course ALL her friends are getting a car. Difference in my children - LJ probably didn't know cars came in different models. He wouldn't have known the difference between a jeep and a Jaguar.

    Mollie can name most cars that pass us on the road and she wants a black Lexus. Dream on little girl!

    Don't worry nosy, you will know all about our trip when we get back. As for exactly where we are going Nick and I decided it was time to see some foreign land with strange customs. More about that later.

    When it comes to exercise I think my problem was what C.C said. I was trying to keep up with those who have been going for a while. Just take it at your own pace. I in other words, move the remote farther down the couch so you will have to stretch!

    What doesn't kill us makes us stronger. I am hoping for the stronger!

    Details women! Details!! I am happy for you and I sure hope it works on the growing part.

    When you dread going to the bathroom because it hurts so to sit you have gone too far. I am better today and vaguely contemplating trying it again next week. We'll see.

    As for Fantasy Friday - no rule! Any length goes. We just love stories. Well one thing, I wouldn't feel comfortable with school girl/head master stories but even then I have a friend who said if I get any good ones she would host FF for me that week.

    Thanks Paul,
    I am going to keep at it!

    Mollie is getting to be a real joy. It was nice going out with her.

    I sure do hope you are right!! I'll keep trying.
