Don't Laugh Too Hard, I'll Be Embarassed

Some of you have seen this already, so don't feel compelled to post. :) It's just a little thing I wrote while in a pensive, sappy frame of mind. I'm not much of a poet, I know, be gentle. lol

When he's open to her needs
In his words and also deeds,
Her heart is open and desires
To be all that love requires.

A simple thing, this discipline
His gentle strength comes from within.
She feels that strength, and when he calls
Responds with trust, (though sometimes falls).

For those of us who've found this life
A way to handle daily strife,
We're happy in our odd-found way
Of spankings that are not just play.

Who can say why she needs this?
A physical sign. . . are we remiss?
Perhaps a spanking serves to remind
That love, respect, and commitment bind.

And If Everyone Else Was Jumping off a Bridge . . .

would you? lolol. I feel like I just have. There is a link over on the right to a forum called A Quiet Space. This is my new space. A few folks have joined me over there. We are getting to know each other and the software. hehe. I expect to keep it small, quiet and intimate. It is a DD and spanking forum, but I hope to engage folks in some general relationship-type discussions too. It is a closed forum. This is to keep it small and comfortable. :) Please write me at serottaatlanta@yahoo.com.

The Joys of Everyday Life

Good grief! Will it ever stop raining! Mitch and I went down to the summer house this weekend to clean it out and get it ready for family and friends for the season. Figured it would be a good weekend for cleaning because the forecast was for rain. Well we used our time productively and got the place shipshape in good order.

We came home last night to find five inches of water in the basement. The rain is supposed to continue into tomorrow. What a mess! Winter boots, ski equipment, camping gear, out-grown toys, all floating around in our brand spanking new indoor swimming pool. lol. We are pretty fortunate though, roads are washed out and many folks are flooded up to the first floor. Schools are closed. The boy will be thrilled . . . until he sees what's in store for him.

I'll be home keeping an eye on the pump and the dehumidifiers, and mopping and scrubbing and carting former treasures to the dump. This is what it takes to get me motivated to do spring cleaning. lol. I think the brawn of a 14-year old boy is just what I need to make the job a little easier. Can't wait to wake the boy up and tell him what the plan is for the day. *wink*

Have a good one, all.

Riding in the Big Ring

It has been such a beautiful weekend! I wish it could be like this all the time. lol. I know, I know, then I wouldn't appreciate it. *grins*. Yesterday was sunny, breezy, cool, clear. Perfect. I went for a ride in the morning - felt like I could have gone all day. No need for booties, gloves, and skullcap, although a windbreaker and tights are still in order. Ideal. The trees are flowering the leaves are just about to explode with life. By the middle of May everything will be lush and green. But for right now, Spring is new - full of promise, hope and expectation.

I was strong yesterday. Spent most of my ride in the big ring. Boosted my over all speed by 2 miles an hour over last week. That's pretty significant when you get to be an old lady like me. lol. I don't think I took the bike out of the middle ring at all last year. The knees and lungs are strong, right now, and the mind is clear.

The mind is clear . . . well, the mind is getting clear. It's been a damn hard month for me. For many, many reasons. And I've been an unbearable mental case. Do you ever have periods of time where it feels as though your world is caving in around you and there is nothing you can do but watch? lol. Anyway, I've had more spankings in the past several weeks than I care to count. Mitch has been my rudder this month, keeping me on track, trying to help me focus my attentions in a productive way, rather than the destructive way I've been moving. It hasn't been easy for him. Don't much care what anyone else thinks of DD in theory or abstract, right now. (Of course, I love theory and abstractions, as my readers know!). The proof is in the difficult times, like these. When he steps up and steps into my turmoil. I love this man more and more every day. Ack! . . . don't tell him I said that. lolol.

I've also had a couple of online friends who have been particularly supportive. I don't know what I would do without these folks. I would have collapsed into complete withdrawal and avoidance. Sturdy friends are important in this time of challenged trust and strained loyalties. I want them to know how much I appreciate them. *smiles*

In a few minutes I'm going out for bike ride. The world is new. I feel strong. I think I'll ride in the big ring. *grins* Care to join me?

Try Again

OK! Yahoo! I think I fixed it. All by myself to boot. hehehe.

I took the test again last night. I must be coming back into balance. These results (I think) are a little more in line with reality. The stability factor was bugging me.

Anyway, thanks again Sue, for posting the link. Maybe I'll go back and take it again in a month or so and see where I am.

Try it. :) Have fun.

Ooops!

I had to take down my last post. The chart I included was messing with the formatting of the blog. I'm not computer saavy enough to fix it and I'm too lazy to learn how, right now. LOL. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I'm hoping to bring my online time to my blog a bit more than I have in the past. I may try to recover a few of the posts I dumped over the past year and put them back up here. If any one could help me with suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
