Did you know that Thursday was National Pancake Day? A big stack of pancakes............ delicious! I love a good analogy. Pancakes are not the only thing stacking up around here. I was dancing straight toward a spanking beginning the morning with being ornery, snappish, prickly and testy. I could not shake it and Jack pulled me aside several times reminding me of how the peace is kept in our family. A sharp swat did little to change my attitude. Things were really stacking right up on Jack's tally sheet as well.
The mood did not leave me.Things were stacking up. Jack asked again if our home was peaceful. I just shrugged and walked away. We were meeting friends for lunch and I just couldn't seem to shake the negative mood I was in. Dancing to a spanking, for sure! Stacking things up, just like those pancakes. We had a great time with friends catching up on what each other has been doing. Saying our good-byes, we headed home. I was quiet, sullen and finally Jack spoke. "Is our home peaceful?", he asked as he put his hand on my knee. I bit my lip and would not look at him.
Once home, he wasted no time. He took me upstairs and bared me except for the socks. He swatted my bottom pointing to my feet. I took them off and the dance was about to begin. He took me over his knee and spanked with the paddle. He talked as he spanked. No more negative talk or prickliness; no more shrugging or walking away. Did I understand?
We have slipped easily into the ttwd side of things and this kind of spanking, ..............Jack unhappy and Meredith needing an attitude change................ just doesn't happen very often around here. Jack brought me up to talk and see if my mood was more positive. He said I had not been spanked like this for a long time. He wanted our home peaceful and and he knew just how to bring that about. He held me and we sat for a long time just enjoying the way our world seemed to be set right.
In a matter of minutes, Jack had settled me down and there was no more horrible cloud over our home and Jack's peace had been restored.
And just like a stack of pancakes eaten with gusto until gone, my stack of negativity vanished just as quickly with a healthy helping of ttwd and Jack.
