Answering My Own Questions And Yours As Well

I appreciate all the bloggers and readers who participated in answering my questionnaire. Now I will answer my own questions and the ones bloggers and readers gave me.

Do your eyes light up when he comes to you?

My eyes always have brightened when I see him even since we were 17.

What sports do you watch together?

We both love baseball and both college and professional football. We like to watch golf tournaments too.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how important in lingerie when it usually ends up on the floor?

Oh, yes........  a big ten, 10 ......Jack loves lingerie. He says it is worth every penny.

Do you watch Netflix's House of Cards?

We love House of Cards and binged watched all of Season 1 and 2.

What outdoor activity do you do together?

We love to hike and do long distance walking. 

What is his dream vacation?

Jack loves a warm and sunny beach just about anywhere.

What is your dream vacation?

I love to go to warm, sunny beaches too! 

What is your favorite book?

I have many and think if I were to share the book at the top of the list, I just might give myself away. 

What was our last argument about?

We seldom argue, not like we used to. The last time we argued it was about time and my becoming too independent according to Jack.

Are there any words you use that he does not like?

Swearing is definitely frowned upon. Saying any words disrespectful does not work. He always wants impeccable speech. Using poor word choice is unbecoming. 

Do you have any restrictions about internet time?

Oh, yes! When we are settled in for an evening together, Jack folds down all tech. He wants me next to him.

Do you have a phobia?

I have a mighty fear of SNAKES.

When do you melt into his arms?

I melt after he loves me, after he spanks me, after he comes home from a day away! I love that man.

Are you watching Outlander?

I am on the Scottish moors with Jamie and Claire as I watch. I loved the book and the TV adaption is sexy and sensual. So many told me they did not know the book or the TV movie. Catch up and enjoy!

Does your Hoh have a motto?

Jack has had a motto for a long time.......... lean in or lean over;  He also likes....... the best is yet to come!

Answers to your questions

First from the comment section:

SS B: What was your last argument about?

We seldom argue anymore. We did have a long discussion about listening more closely to what each of us is saying to the other. 

Aymee: Were you nervous the first time Jack spanked?

I was very nervous before the first spanking. Jack was calm and decisive. I told myself that when the time came, I needed to submit as I promised. I wrote a post about the first spanking in June 2013. 

Kate: Is there something Jack does that gets under your skin?

There are many things that bug me. He likes to move into my territory of responsibilities. Laundry is what I do, but he keeps taking charge and we do have words about that. He shaves in the shower and takes forever. 

Bloggers who posted the questionnaire on their own blogs:

Katie: What are three changes you have noticed since beginning Ttwd?

We argue less, have sex more and I lean in to his decisions.

Alice: What is my favorite thing to put on top of food?

No hot sauce here. I have been married twenty years when I bought my first bottle of Tabasco. Probably salt and pepper is my most accurate answer.

Callie: What is our favorite date night?

We love exploring new restaurants together. Recently we enjoyed a new Greek restaurant and hope to return soon.

Julia: What TV shows are you looking forward to his fall?

We love Homeland, Survivor, Amazing Race and Downtown Abbey. Our DVR will be programmed.

Dana: What is your favorite dessert?

In these golden days of late August, I love to fix Jack and I sliced fresh,sugared peaches served with a dollop of ice cream. Heaven!

Ami: Which years of my life would I like to re-live?

Good question, Ami. I would not re-live any as I do not live my life with regret. I always play life forward and believe that the best is yet to come. Every year was great and now it is better as ttwd gave Jack and I a refresher course in loving one another. 

Janey: What is your indulgence?

I have several things to name: chocolate, time online, books for my iPad kindle app and audio books for my iPhone. I can hear Jack groaning. 

Jan: What is your favorite film?

I love the movie Shawshank Redemption and watch it at least one a year. 

Jennelle: What is a favorite meal made by Jack?   What side of the bed to I sleep on? What has surprised us in doing ttwd/dd?

A favorite meal Jack is making tonight is grilled marinated flank steak, fresh corn on the cob, baked jacket potato, fresh garden tomatoes from our garden.

I sleep on the side of the bed closest to the windows. I open the shutters and look at the night sky. When sleeping, Jack is on my right. 

The biggest surprise for both of us is the improved communication between us. We can talk things out and not every discussion ends in a spanking. We listen to one another in a new and improved way. 

Kris: What did I do to deserve my first spanking?

I wrote an early post about the first spanking which was earned through my attitude mostly. It was awkward and quick and when it was over, I cried in his arms. 

Dana: Would you recommend DD to another couple?

I might, but unless I knew them well, I would wait until they asked us what makes us so happy, Then I would share!!

Thank you for participating. I enjoyed reading all your answers on your blogs.

  3. Again, we have many more things in common - not least the Shawshank Redemption. But different in that there are parts of my life that were just so wonderful that I would love to relive them if only briefly. Wish I was coming to dinner - steak, jacket potato, sweet corn and tomatoes from the garden - what could be better?!!!
