Two mornings in a row Dragon woke me in grand style. With the paddle! He loves to wake me with kisses and love making. That is the norm. The paddle isn't a new idea but it has been a while since he has used it that way.
Sunday morning the sun was up but neither one of us wanted to start the day. He decided it was time to get moving but I had other ideas. After fooling around like two teenagers for about 30 minutes he decided it was time. The covers came down and he grabbed the only paddle left in the house. Balsa.
Balsa is a very soft wood. All pop and just a little sting. But let me tell you, Dragon can make that paddle talk. My bottom got the message hard and fast. He put his weight across my back, a signal to me that it is going to be a hard one and gave me a few memory swats. I didn't know it was possible to give memory swats with that paddle! Now I know! Lesson learned.
It wasn't a punishment but it serve to reconnect us. I didn't get much done yesterday. I felt off all day. Dizzy and tired. Almost sick but not quite. Off? I don't know. It was a lazy day. So lazy for me that I had the kids take the Christmas decorations down instead of doing it myself. I need to repack them but I was happy to have some help this year.
It is funny how it works. When I talk about DD with him, he is much more attentive. He said the reason he doesn't punish more often is just that he is tired from long work days. Well.... I reminded him about non spanking punishments that take little or no effort from him. Now what did I do that for? Honestly? I like what the DD dynamic does for our relationship. I like what it does for both of us. I don't like being spanked or punished in any way but it brings us closer.
Today is a work day for him but we still made love this morning. Unusual but nice. I think I want to do this again! Just before he got me out of bed, the paddle came out again. Not as hard as yesterday but just enough to let me know he cares. Funny how that works, isn't it?
Update on my leg. The bruising is just a faint outline now with a hard knot still in the center. It doesn't bother me at all anymore. I am doing my step aerobics two times a day and walking to the mail box several times a day, just to walk and get out of the house. Dragon says that my hips are getting slimmer and my butt is getting a very nice shape to it. :) I think I'll keep doing what I am doing.
