What Would You Do?

If given the chance to do one thing, without consequence or punishment, what would it be?

Would you lounge around the house for a week, staying in your PJ's refusing to do any housework?

Would you do something more daring?

There are 2 things that I would like to add to my bucket list, but the hubby has made it pretty clear neither will happen without some serious consequences!!!


I would love to go to a psychic. Not because I believe they can really see into the future, but rather I think they are people who can read body language. I'd like to go wearing jogging pants and a T-shirt, no jewelry and no makeup. 

Both my mom and sister go, but I have never been. I guess I'm just curious... but my hubby is dead set against it. 

He pretty much told me I would be punished every day for a week if I went behind his back, plus remove all privileges.

(I should add that he has a family member that basically basis her life around psychic predictions, but its not like I'm about to do that!)

I would LOVE to ride on the back of a motorcycle.

Come on now, that just looks fun!

What would you do?

The Case of the Housework Blues

Right now my house looks a little like this...

I should have this attitude...

But instead, I can't help the think...

or this...

(Big Sigh)

I guess I'll be doing this all afternoon...

But maybe I'll do a little more of this first...

On another note, my husband tried to brush off one if is chores on to me the other day. I have never cut the grass a day in my life, nor do I ever plan to. When I was young I asked my dad to teach me and he out right refused. I have never showed interest since that day.

As we driving around the other day my hubby pointed out a young lady cutting the grass...
him -"See, girls can cut the grass too."

me - "Ok dear, I will cut the grass this week and take out the garbage and you can do the laundry, cook and clean up after the meals and vacuum."

(he apparently didn't like the idea of trading chores for the week because he just flat out refused to respond)

him - "But I'm allergic to grass!"

me - "and I am allergic to laundry detergent!"

I guess that was that, cause when we got home he cut the grass and I did the laundry.

An unusual threat from my father

2 things you should know about me.
1. I was never disciplined as a child. Granted, I was pretty well behaved, but there certainly were times that I should have earned a punishment of some kind. I only ever remember being grounded once, and that only prevented me from playing with friends. I was still allowed to watch tv and play videogames. I never had to stand in the corner, I never had soap in my mouth, and I never was spanked.

2. Despite my young age, I'm not really into technology. Im not really one to upgrade things. I figure, if it still works the why waste my money. So that would be the reason why I had my last cell phone for the past 5 years.

Okay, so now my story.

I decided it was time for a new phone, everyone seems to have a smart phone, so why not, I deserve something nice every now and then. I even bought a fancy case filled with bling.

My parents are evn more behind on technology then me. They don't have cell phones, heck, they don't even own a computer! So they were pretty excited to get a brief tutorial of my new iPhone.

After showing them all the cool things my new phone can do, me dad proceeded to give me a lecture on texting and driving.

"You better not be texting while driving on that thing little miss."

"don't worry dad, I  would NEVER dream of doing that"

"I don't care how old you are, if I found out you were doing that I would put you over my knee!"

What?!?!    I think my jaw hit the floor! He has never even threatened to spank me before!

I wonder how he would react if i told him the hubby already has that one covered!

Attention seeking behaviors

It has been over a month since I have been spanked! And trust me I'm not complaining about that! I don't particularly enjoy being spanked, but I do appreciate the time we spend together after.

Sometimes our schedules can be a little crazy. He works nights, I work days.  Unfortunately, despite his many attempts he can't seem to fall asleep when he first gets home from work. Often times he is just starting to get into his deep rem sleep when I arrive home from work.

Some days this is quite enjoyable. I pack his lunch, throw a load of laundry in the wash, make myself something small for dinner, then curl up in front of the couch with a book, scroll the internet and watch tv, maybe take a nice hot bubble bath.

But... Some times I start to feel very lonely.

So this weekend, when he decided to fill up his free time with tennis and golf with his buddies I started to get a little bitter.

I wanted to stomp my feet

I wanted to hold my breath until my face turned red.

I wanted to slam doors.

I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs.


Instead of doing all those things, I decided to talk to him.

It started when he was playing with the cat and told her she was beautiful.

I even was jealous of my cat!!!!!

"sure tell the cat she's beautiful but what about me"

"I tell you that your beautiful all the time"

"I don't remember the last time you told me I'm beautiful"

"where is all this coming from?"

(Deep sigh)

" i guess I just feel neglected, like I needed a little bit of attention. Part of me is tempted to do something bad just so that your forced to pay some attention to be" (I guess it's true what they say, attention is still attention whether it is positive or negative)

I think I saw his eyes pop right out of his head!

"no,no, no nothing BAD bad, just something to get your attention, like "forget" to replace the toilet paper when it's done, or "accidentally" forget to take my vitamins, or "forget" my phone at home when I leave for the day."

Well, I'm glad I decided to talk to him rather then act on my temptation because we spent a lazy afternoon curled up on the couch, wrapped up in each others arms watching movies rather then me faced down on the bed with a warm red bottom!

Stormy's word game

I have an anxiety disorder and often struggle to fall asleep at night. So a few years ago i started playing a little game. I pick a theme and then go through the alphabet trying to match each letter with something that has to do with my theme. I tend to enjoy doing animals and vegetables, as they are the easiest.  So, there was no way I could turn down  stormy's challenge to come up with a list using ttwd!
So here goes!

Ass (as in your ass is grass!)
Enough! (one word warning at this house)
Grounded (what I was yesterday)
Icy hot (not something I want to experience)
Johnny lope?
Maintance (I stole this one from stormy)
NO "no tv and no internet" what? I'd rather the spanking please!
Privacy or paddle
Quiet time
Silent spanking
Vitamins (my newest rule since i always forget to take them)
Wooden spoon
Xtra lines (stole again, guess I'm a thief
Yes sir
Zero tolerance!

Wow that was kind of tricky, I'll probably be up all night now trying to come up with better ones!

The best marriage advice I've received...

Aside from Stormies recent blog, "just do it" the best advice I've recieved came from a marriage course required by my church before we got married. We followed along The Marriage Book: How to Build A Lasting Relationship Written by Nicky and Sila Lee.

Chapter 5-  the 5 expressions of love really stood out to me, and I frequently go back to that chapter.

The idea is, essentially there are 5 ways to express our love

Loving words
Kind actions
Quality time
Thoughtful presents
Physical affection

The exersize included each of us ranking the about expressions of importance for both ourselves and what we think our partners would rank

So, for myself I ranked it as follows


The big surprise was despite how well I thought I new the man, and how well he knows me... Our ranking did not line up perfectly.

I feel the most love when he tells me that I'm beautiful, or how much we can't believe I'm his wife, but also through his actions. I feel loved when he steps up as an hoh, guides and protects me. I feel loved when he worries about me, and takes action to protect our marriage and my safety.

He feels love when I scratch his head when we are lying on the couch, when I pack him yummy lunches for work and.... Let's just say touch was a big one.

I think this is an important exersize for all couples.

Because it the little things in life right?
