Wow! I have been away for some time. Since my last post, I have had a major medical problem, and after a year and a half, I feel about 75% back to the old me.
Our family has also gone through many changes, with moving to another town and house, deaths, family moving in, kids and family moving out, graduations, renovations, and in general, life.
Gud and I have gotten to a place that we both feel like it is time to put all of the stress and changes behind us. And speaking of"behinds," look ahead at keeping mine a pretty shade of Rosey cheek red.
In previous posts, you will see that I send a DDiary to Gud. This has continued through the past couple of years, with a few months here and there on hiatus. Since my illness, we have discussed and tried to get back to our DD lifestyle a few times. Last year, he had me come up with a list of things I would like to work on, and a list of consequences, considering my pain tolerance was pretty much destroyed. We agreed on the list and tried a restart. That lasted for a couple of months, but sort of fell by the wayside.
Forward to this year. As I have continued to send Ddiaries, sometimes, I would forget. A couple of weeks ago, I sent my diary and realized it had been two weeks, which according to our schedule, that could have been 5 Ddiaries I had missed. I had the urge to tell him. We really had not been practicing ttwd, but I still felt I needed to come clean.
One afternoon, a few days later, we found ourselves in a rare occasion of being alone, and Gud told me he wanted to "play.". As we were settling into a "good girl" spanking, I remembered the ddiary incident. I was in position for a spanking and blurted out that he may "owe me a real spanking." He asked why, and I told him. His comment, "Well that changes things." He told me I was going to be punished. I was given a punishment spanking, and afterwards, everything just felt like it was back in balance, and he also felt it was a good thing.
Since then, we have read and discussed many blogs. The discussion has been awesome. We decided, for the first time in our five year Dd marriage, we needed to review and form a contract, of sorts. Our first order of business was a maintenance scedule. We found one that looked like it would work best for our situation and personalities than others, and have started weekly date nights, in which have conversed and come up with our own maintenance plan.
We have agreed that we would do maintenance once a week. Yesterday was our first chance to actually carry on with the plan. There were some bumps along the way, but all in all, it went well. Gud did a great job of reminding me that I am his, that he is still my HOH, disciplinarian, and leader. We are very hopeful that from here on out, we have found the beginning of our new norm.
In my next post, I will share our maintenance plan and more about our first session.
See y'all back here, soon.
