It's Just A Little Too Close In The Car Sometimes............

I know I have written many posts about the intimate discussions Jack and I have had in the car. Eyes forward, his hand on my knee, good talk! Scratch all that on this week-end morning. I found myself sitting a little too close! Let me explain. 

We are heading out of town on a overnight adventure. I am so excited and we are now discussing the details about leaving home. Jack informed me that before we leave, he has an appointment that needs his attention. I first went quiet. Then I sulked. Then I began to argue my points about moving the appointment to another day. Things were getting tense and my voice was getting shrill. In the blink of an eye, he spanked my bare legs and I quickly pulled my legs away. He told me to put my legs right back where they were. I was wearing my skort as we were on our way to do an easy morning hike. Bare legs spanked and more promised if I did not settle down. 

Jack drove on and talked about why his decision was final. If I could have rolled my eyes and gotten away with it, that is just what I would have done. No such luck! I listened, but was quiet. He asked if I would prefer to return home to continue this conversation over the bed. No, I said. I told him I accepted his decision, but I did not agree with the way things would go. Jack told me that was fine..... just so my attitude was positive and there was a smile on my face. 

Sometimes this ttwd is so hard. We have not had many disagreements like this one............ small decision, but important to both of us for different reasons. Fuming and distancing would not go well for me. I accepted Jack's decision although I did not like it. We went on our hike. I changed my attitude to be more positive, but deep inside, I did not like it. Ttwd means kisses and sweetness and good girl spankings. Sometimes it means doing things his way when I do not like it one little bit and having to keep my thoughts to myself. 

He thinks an RA would help keep things even keeled the morning we leave. I am not altogether sure what will happen. I do know that I am leaning in to what he wants and am still not very happy about it. 

Thanks, L.


  1. I personally find trusting that my husband knows best to be one of the hardest things in this ttwd. Mere, you are growing in your trust. I hope I will get better with mine. Thanks, Mere and L. You always inspire me to do better in my submissive role.

  2. Sometimes it isnt easy but they love us just the same

  3. Mere,,you did good,,I'm very proud of you. Don't know if I could have done as well,,,: - )


  4. Hi Meredith, good on you for accepting Jack's decision even though you didn't agree. It is definitely not always easy.


  5. I am not always easy going when it comes to letting things go. I'm glad you were able to do it even if you were not thrilled!

  6. "Sometimes my greatest accomplishment is keeping my mouth shut." Truer words were never written! Lol. It's so hard to accept and move forward when you don't agree with a decision, isn't it! You know I had that problem with my son's birthday party. I argued and pestered. But I fell into line and accepted. And it was a great party!! Love that you are always honest with Jack even when you don't agree. I hope you have a good time on your trip!

  7. Meredith,
    I think it is harder to stay submissive when it is a spanking with the purpose of avoiding any future problems. Your first instinct is to pipe up with, "But I haven't done anything!"

    However, Sam usually knows which times are most difficult for me to maintain my balance. He knows there are certain family members that can set me off. If I wasn't in control the last time that person was at our home, he may decide I need a little preemptive attention before the next time they visit.

    Perhaps Jack knows exactly what situations set you off. Like leaving on a trip. From an HOH point of view, maybe it just makes good sense to be prepared.

    1. Gas up the car.
    2. Get enough cash.
    3. Pack.
    4. Spank Meredith.

    Hope the rest of the trip is a happy one!

  8. Meredith,
    It is so hard at times, and it's really hard to let things go especially when you don't agree. I think you did a great job. I hope you're feeling better about his decision now :)


  9. Oops, Meredith, my advice is simple, keep your mouth shut and life will be fine!
    love Jan,xx

  10. This is a great post. It shows that life isn't all roses and rainbows. "Sometimes it means doing things his way when I do not like it one little bit..." That's kinda where the rubber meets the road. It's all easy until something comes up that you don't like. That's when you have to voice your opinion respectfully. Once he makes the decision, keep your thoughts to yourself. Not always easy.
    Good for you. Hope you have a great time. :)

  11. Hi Meredith, I also think this is not always easy, but you leaning into him and accepting his decision is awesome. You made your point clear and your husband decided, and I am sure he has listened closely. It does not always go our way then, but I imagine that after a while, when looking back, you are proud of doing this for the both of you, especially because you did not agree. Wishing you a wonderful trip.



  12. Hard stuff- all that behaving thing, Meredith!! :) Gg spankings rock! Stay far, far away from the other kind!!! Learning to "zip it" in these kinds of times is not easy one bit! Good for you!!

    I hope that you have a WONDERFUL adventure. I'm thinking it will likely be that. Be good now. Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

  13. All I know is this better not be over a golf lesson! Tell him you've analyzed his swing and it's plenty efficient and more than accurate. Now pack your bags and scoot out of town!
    This is the hardest part for me too- keeping my emotions and words in check when we disagree on something. I'd say you bounced back pretty well.

  14. Still trying to get my husband to consider leading our home. Was Jack a natural leader?

  15. Its not easy to let them lead when you disagree but defiance only leads to one thing. Giving in gracefully is recommended, just wish I could follow my own advice.

  16. You should be proud of yourself wasn't easy but you accepted Jack's decision and didn't ruin your outing with sulking and fighting. You done good! ;)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  17. I applaud your will power. I am not so smart as to keep my mouth shut.
