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.

Ordinary stuff

I hope everyone that celebrates Christmas is getting excited. I know some of my friends got snow this weekend and that’s always fun. I spent Sunday evening wrapping gifts and doing a little more decorating on the house. I almost felt like baking Christmas cookies but I managed to hold off – barely!

I’m still feeling pretty good these days. Monday afternoon I had to go back to the doctor for my blood pressure check, all is well in that area. But they needed to take some blood for a test to see if the medicine is doing any damage to my kidneys. First they stuck my left arm, evident there is no blood in that one. Stuck my right arm, got some blood there. Then back to my left arm for my H1N1 vaccine. Hey, I'm no pin cushion, there in only one part of me I want sore and it ain't my arms!

Thursday I’m going for a bone density test. I haven’t had one before but I know the test is nothing. Hope the exercise for the last three years has done a little to help my bones. We’ll see. Mollie is going with me and after the test I hope to finish up my Christmas shopping.

Good news, I've lost 2 pounds since last week. That’s about what I gained over Thanksgiving so as long as I got most of that off I can’t complain. Maintaining during December is about all I can hope for. This is the next to the last week for the challenge at my gym. I’ve done the 8 required classes and hopefully this week will have all my hours in. I haven’t lost a ton but I know this challenge has been what has helped me maintain so I’m glad I did it.

Now the bad news - I can't write. I have 3, count 'em 3, Fantasy Friday stories in my head. That other dear lady who whispers her stories in my head is very active. What have I actually put on paper (screen, whatever) - nothing!! I can't even seem to answer emails as I normally would. Stories race around in my head as I lay down at night, when I shower the next morning, when I'm working out at the gym, I come home - I want to write, I'm ready. Then I sit down and stare at the keyboard - nothing. It would be bad enough if I didn't have any ideas but to have ideas and just not to get anything started, grrrrrrrr... I don't know what to do. Oh well they are still in my head, maybe sometime.


  1. PK, I've had writers block for over a year now, one day, perhaps.
    Maintaining your current weight is very good for the festive season.
    Nick should be proud of you.
    Love and warm hugs,

  2. PK: If you have the same bone density test I did, you have to hold your arms above your head while the machine does its thing. Kind of a strain on your arms but it may get some other thoughts swirling in your head.

    And hope you're enjoying all the Christmas planning.

    Also, we'll be patient while you wait to transfer your stories from your head to the computer.

    Yeah for the weight - pullin for you on the kidney function and bd tests. Trying to get in the decorating spirit - can you send some thissway?! Idea: I bought a hand held recorder. While in the car I sometimes throw some words on there - Remember "Night Shift"? Sometimes that helps, then use the earplugs to write what you've recorded... just suggestin' ;) hugs KayLynn

  4. If the stories are in your ehad, they'll come out when they're good and ready. Don't worry. (But make notes as reminders, just in case.)


  5. Paul,
    If your block ever does break I sure do know lots and lots of places that would be very happy to host your work!

    I'm not upset about my weight. I'll just keep working on it a little at the time.

    Seems like several of my friends said they were laying down for the test - I'll let you know.

    I think all the stories in my head are trying to get out the door at the same time and they are blocking each other.

    I do like your suggestion. It had crossed my mind because I got one for LJ - he wanted it to help him learn his lines. Often a line or scene will work through my mind in the car or at the gym. A small recorder might really help!

    You and Kaylynn have made good points. I hate it when I know I had a good idea and it just floats away - that's what old age will do to you!

  6. Great job on the weight loss. The same thing happened to me. Great ideas in bed, but by morning gone. So I bought a small notebook I keep by my bed. I get up just to write a few lines or key words. Most of the time, it will flow when I get back to writing.
    Hope you a have a great holiday season.
