Jet Lag Gets Paddled

I know it is a privileged situation here. We have been suffering from enormous jet lag after our 22 hours of flying......... three airplanes, three continents and no reset, no reconnection, no spanking, no belt! Jack was using a new implement and I was sweating bullets worrying about it. Jack had put the belt on a hook in our closet and I looked at it as I had put away folded laundry. Sweet people commented on my post telling me to relax, trust Jack and get through it. 

Home two days and no reset, no reconnection, no reaffirmation! We were exhausted and sleep came in waves over and over again. I became very sullen and withdrawn wondering why we were not taking care of ttwd. Where was the dd? Where was the ttwd? Where were Jack and Meredith? We entered into a silent mode just like the way we used to be before we began ttwd/dd. I did not like it one bit and it showed in my silence and withdrawing. I was on the verge of starting a huge argument with Jack. 

Instead I took a step back and thought about our situation. We were both weary from the traveling. Jack was still the boss. Jack was still the one in charge of us. I needed to be patient for the reset to happen. I needed to give Jack my support and love. He needed sleep not a demanding wife who needs a reset. 

We slept and slept some more. This morning I woke to the aroma of coffee and there was Jack with two big cups of frothy liquid coming in the bedroom door. Jack and Meredith were back. When I came out of the shower, Jack was standing near the bed with the paddle in his hand. He told me it was reset time and this was spanking #1. 

Trust me, this spanking was a long, stinging one, but it was wonderful to be back over Jack's knee. Once it was over, he was quick to tell me that spanking #2 would be with the belt this afternoon. I was to stop fretting and start accepting. It would happen. I needed it and so did he. 

Welcome home, Jack and Meredith. 


  1. :) I'm so happy for you, and welcome home. Sometimes "things" just get in the way, and it's hard to be patient and not let your mind wander and worry. You both give each other what you needed, a little time and a lot of much needed rest. HUGS

  2. I'm sure that all will be well again soon :) Just have to weather the storms sometimes. I'm glad you're getting what you both need.


  3. Im so glad you were able to step back and give him the sleep space he needed. He didn't forget! How awesome! He just needed you're love and patience and to remember it's on his time. I need to learn that lesson soon! - welcome back!

  4. Happyt things are getting back on track. Once you get through the PM, all will be well in your world.

  5. Mere,

    I cannot even imagine the fatigue you both must have been experiencing from such long hours on an airplane - but I do remember what a banshee I was towards my hubby due to lack of proper sleep when I was up with babies at night.

    I'm so glad that you've both gotten the rest you so desperately needed, and that Jack was diligent to give you the reset you were craving. He's such a good hubby!

    Welcome home and welcome back!!


  6. Jack knew what he was doing all along!
    Welcome home!!
