Man am I ever late- I apologize!
I came on to announce that I will be away for a bit. I'm entering a very busy season of my life- all good things- and I'm finding it more difficult to stay current here so have come to realize a break was necessary.
In other news... I haven't "officially" begun exercising, but I have been outputting so much physical energy each day as I tackle spring cleaning that I feel as though I've run a marathon most days.
I've gotten down and dirty with my oven, cleaned out and applied liners to my fridge, and scoured my dishwasher among so many other things...
I've mostly been doing ok with eating this week but with all the output of energy have eaten some carbs in order to keep my energy up... at times I've even forgotten to eat- not so good.
And I've lost 4 pounds!
As well as being busy physically, my mental energy is being well used. I'm teaching a co- op class, helping out in my church, and have joined a mothers group for breakfast and a group study each Thursday morning. I am currently actively engaged in 2 different book readings and learning so much from them!
Life is full and good!
J and I are very connected in all the ways I hope for, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and I have found that we seem to be turning a corner in our dynamic. Punishment hasn't happened here in quite some time... other types of spanking... well that certainly has and it is awesome!
For the first time ever we are exploring the benefits to stress relief and erotic types of spanking and learning more about achieving the desired effects of "subspace"- anyone with experience there please comment!!
I think I have only experienced subspace through massage- J is amazing with his hands when giving me a back rub or running his hands through my hair and the feeling it brings sounds like what is described as others have explained what subspace feels like. I haven't been there yet through spanking (which up until now have mainly disciplinary in practice here) but we are exploring.
J gave me a wonderful spanking a few days ago and I could feel the edges coming off. He said it relieved his stress as well which I found interesting. Comments on that would be welcome also!
I want to keep in contact while I am away so will be visiting your blogs when time allows. Please feel free to comment here or drop me an email.
