So here I am, 2 days late. Living the sedentary lifestyle. Step count is 4,200. Ridiculous.
Working, working, working…
Work stuff is actually going well, things are starting to fall into place, I might actually make money again someday, which would be nice. Well, not just nice, but essential. So that’s good.
And I got my blood work back from the doctor; it looked pretty good. Even my cholesterol levels were much better so I’m not starting on statins just yet. A1C was 6.2, which is even better than last time. That’s on a small dose of meds, but still…
It is only slightly funny that I’ve talked about my health so much on here that I’m being followed by Chiropractors and such. Nope, not kidding. Of course, maybe it’s just spam. We can hope.
In other news, I’m going to be visiting Where I Used to Live and I’ve made an appointment with my old therapist, who I think I used to call JM the Wise. Or something like that. I’m excited to see him. It’s only been about a year since last time, but much longer than that since I was seeing him regularly. If I keep visiting my hometown every year, I may do an annual visit for the rest of my life. Why not? We do annual physicals, right? It’s my annual mental health check-in. And, unlike a physical, I’m looking forward to it!
At last, the quotes you’ve been waiting for. Did you know that if you google “Quotes spanking” you get a bunch of pro and con parents spanking their children stuff? But if you google “Quotes BDSM spanking,” you get little gems like this:
“When a hand comes down across your bottom, the sting is quickly followed by a prickling numbness. The pain vanishes and the heat generated from those slaps sends lines of electric fire through all the tissues and nerve endings, ripples of warmth that gather in a wave of sensations, a million tiny kisses that lap over your clitoris and take you to a breath-taking orgasm. That’s why girls like spanking and spanking girls is a unique pleasure.”
― Chloe Thurlow,
This next one is long, but soooo worth reading.
“Leaving my empty goblet, I slide from the soft pile at his order. I can already feel the desire bursting from between my thighs as I fall to all fours and begin my crawl to where he has seated himself.
“We will begin as before—you will be spanked over my knee—but this time there will be little pleasure in it for you, my captive. I intend to hurt you—to mark that pretty little behind—and make you unable to sit properly for some time.”
I am back by his feet as he concludes and warily, I raise my eyes as he finishes the sentence. I know I am not hiding the terror in my face and yet still I am compelled to carry on—submitting myself to him in this way for our mutual need. He catches my hair in his left hand and pulls it into a rough ponytail, again drawing my head back.
“When my hand is aching from tanning your backside, I will bind you to the bedpost and continue to thrash you with my strap. Do you understand?”
He eyes me wildly and for a moment I am too afraid to even respond. I have to swallow hard again to find my voice.
“Please, my Lofðungr,” I say shakily. “I do not know if I can bear such a punishment?”
He never takes his eyes from me as he answers. “You can and you will, my sweeting,” he says. “You will submit to me in this way as a sign of your true desire to be mine.”
I close my eyes at his words, understanding for the first time his real intention. He means not just to punish me, but to mark and possess me in some meaningful way. To make me his again in the way that our coupling had done before. As I open my eyes again and see him standing over me, there are tears but also a new acceptance.
I nod my head as best I can whilst he is still holding my hair in his fist. “I will bear it,” I say, my voice breaking.
He leans in toward me, his face just an inch from mine, those blue pools burning into me. “You will bear it,” he replies, his hot breath against my face, “and I will love you for it.”

That really captures the essence of D/s for me, and it so much more than spanking. And it is incredibly hot.
Ok, enough of that. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and today’s adventure is waiting for me, whatever it’s going to be.
