Time has a way of galloping away and I am trying to get a hold of my time, but the clock keeps racing anyway. I thought I might share a day in our life, a regular day of two empty nesters who love one another and are using ttwd/gentle dd in how they live that life. That is a whole lot of words for here is a day in the life of Jack and Meredith............... three spankings, one ends in tears and two end with laughter.......... let's go!
We begin our day with coffee in bed and the windows open these warm spring days. The view is of the mountains, sky and trees.......... hot, frothy coffee and my laptop sitting next to Jack as he reads the news online. I read emails and take another sip of coffee. We talk over our day. Jack will golf and I am walking, meeting friends and shopping. We decide to meet at home in the late afternoon. For some reason, we both naturally head to the convergent zone known as our closet. I am getting on my exercise clothes and he is headed to the shower. We all know what happens in that closet. I am bare and he is at the ready. He loves his preventative spankings. He says they settle me and he is right. I get a stand up spanking right there almost every single morning. Sometimes I have been known to fuss and twist a little too much. Jack then gets serious and the fussing and twisting stop and the hand spanking begins.
I prepare breakfast for both of us and then we are out the door. Errands, walking, coffee with friends occupy my morning.
Then in the afternoon Jack and I meet at home. I am excited about what I have done and want to share everything all at once. He wants to tell me about his golf game or friends he has met. I am talking right over him and not even noticing what I am doing. I am not listening and he knows it. I am interrupting continuously. He raises his voice and says stop, but I keep right on talking. He takes me in hand and we head upstairs. I am quiet real fast. He strips me down and over his knee I go. During the warm up, he says I am not one of the girls at coffee. When I am talking, he tells me, I want you to listen and be quiet. He told me what I was doing was very rude and disrespectful. Then he uses the paddle and he spanks about ten times and brings me up to talk. This intermission he calls his encouragement. He tells me he wants my respect and full attention. He wants me listening. At this point, I am real emotional and nod my head knowing well we are only halfway. Back over I go for round two. When the spanking is over, I am almost crying and so upset. He walks me into the master bath using paddle swatting to get me moving. We shower together and I melt into his arms and all is right in our world.
We move to the bed and that means a little afternoon delight. Right as things are getting really serious, I ask about his golf game. Everything just stops. He asks me to repeat what I had just said. I couldn't believe what I had just done! That man flipped me over and spanked me hard and fast and then we were both laughing and he sweetly went back to finishing the task at hand as we giggled some more.
I had been shopping for new summer things to wear on an upcoming vacation. Jack wanted a fashion show. As I modeled the things I bought, he smiled and told me how great my body looked and why hadn't I purchased more lingerie. That sweet man! Really, I have worked hard on a body that keeps growing older and I fight harder to keep things in shape. He sweetly acknowledges how hard I work and loves me anyway. He tells me I have a very spankable, cute bottom. Be still my heart.
We took hamburgers to the beach and watched the setting sun wrapped in a blanket. Very romantic and so us! Then home we came and we decided not to watch one lick of TV. We went to bed even before it was completely dark. The twilight here is long and we can see the stars coming out from our bed. I told Jack I was not sleepy and he put his hand on my bottom and said to breathe with him and we went right to sleep.
Such a wonderful day........... wait.......... three spankings! Empty nests have no protective barriers. There is good and bad in that statement. I am loved and I am spanked. And I have promised to do a better job of listening to my husband. Day is over, good night!
I am glad I know when I am happy!
Thanks, Ami for the title!
