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 I became very sullen and withdrawn wondering why we were not taking care of ttwd.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.
