Truth be told, I enjoy being home alone when I can chart my day, make plans, do tasks, email, blog....... you get the idea! Today is Tuesday and across this nation, husbands are home, under foot. It is ladies day at the golf course. I do go with Jack to play golf, but we play in the evenings, twilight golf. It is now mid-day and my sweet, loving man is under foot. He has gardened, worked on the laundry (grrrr), marinated meat to grill, and in general, just been under foot. I know that must sound funny...... he is an energetic man without a lot to do. I want my peace and serenity. What I have is a loving guy constantly interrupting me with questions, requests and of course, good loving and sweet little spanks. I so love my solitude here in the middle of the day. I love that quote somebody wrote bout husbands being underfoot all day, "Yes to breakfast and dinner, but no one said anything about lunch."
So the snippets began this morning and have not really stopped.
Me: Let's be a little sweeter with one another.
Jack: I pledge to be sweeter, but you get the spanking.
After showering together:
Me: I feel refreshed now.
Jack: A little closer and I will refresh you.
J: Meredith, if you are having trouble keeping your role, rest assured that I am not having any trouble keeping mine.
Me: You barked at me for no reason.
Jack: I'm sorry.
Jack: Accept my apology or I will spank you.
Jack: Somebody's going to get a spanking and it's not me.
