It's been a really long time..

I have no idea what was going on when I posted last. I'm pretty sure I didn't have any idea that it would be this long until I came back. It's weird how things happen like that, isn't it? 

I have no idea of what's going on on blogland. Who's 'in' or Who's 'out', lol. I haven't hit any message boards or read much at all.  I did see the big 25 anniversary for Blondie! That's fantastic!!!! 

To catch you up to where we are, I can do it in one word: busy.  

We are so unbelievably busy. Is it with anything of mine? Nope.  I do have a workout schedule, but it's hasn't been used in more than 3 weeks.  So, so busy.  But, we're still making time for each other at the end of the day.  I think that's how we are surviving it.  Any other time when we've been this crazed, we've been fighting or aggravated with one another.  Not this time.  

 I know. Everyone has the same 24 hours in a day. Super true. We use that time from 9pm- to whenever we (or he.. because once we start, I get sucked in and could stay up all night..) decide it's too late and have to stop netflixing Dexter, lol.  That's what we are currently obsessed with right now. We did Breaking Bad last summer. We haven't started Orange yet, but intend to at some point. We just started season 5 recently, so no spoilers, lol! 

So, there we sit on our couch with our dogs all huddled up near us, usually. Hand in hand as Dexter chops someone else up. Super romantic, right? =P But it works for us. It's time spent together. Sometimes I can't watch, but that's what FM is there for, right? He tells me when it's safe to remove his hand from my eyes. 

We are in a good place. We weren't a couple weeks ago.  I was irrationally mad & I was completely aware that it was irrational. Unlike lots of other times though, I wasn't worried.  I knew he wasn't going anywhere. I knew I wasn't going anywhere and that it would blow over eventually.  I'm not saying I didn't hold the grudge for longer than I should've or that ttwd went well during that time, but I didn't have the 'one of us is going to bail' mentality that sometimes creeps in.  

We aren't in full-blown ttwd, but he did smack my behind- hard- the other day when he came up from looking at the dryer and found somewhere between a couple and a million dryer sheets not in the garbage can. LOL. It's his biggest pet peeve and I didn't even realize I was doing it.... again
I said: owww, that was hard.
FM: It was supposed to be
Ah, point taken.  

We just celebrated an anniversary also, 9 years. Crazy that more than a third of my life has been spent with this man. :) 

Hope you've all been doing well. Please feel free to catch me up!!!! 


  1. I hate it when life gets so busy it feels like one day just spills over to the next. My husband and I also look forward to winding down with our shows at night.Sometimes I have to ask him to leave his recliner and join me on the sofa, but I just love resting my head on his lap or shoulder. Often it sets the mood for some good sex, but it's okay to just be together too.
    Breaking Bad was addictive, we found Orange is the New Black a look at an entirely different world, and Game of Thrones is another favorite of ours.

    1. We haven't watched game of thrones either, but I've heard it's good. FM always likes for me to be next to him.. And not on my phone lol :)

  2. Hi Elle, welcome back. It's great to hear from you. Glad you and FM are doing well and that you are making time for each other. Hope life calms down a bit for you soon.


  3. Hi Elle,
    Congratulations on 9 years. You are a brave brave person to be able to watch gore with FM, not something I could ever do. Not even with a hand over my eyes!!!
    I have a bit of a solution for the dryer sheets for you. Have you tried using an old wash cloth and phputting some fabric softener on it? You just throw it into the dryer that way. Works well and you do not end up with a pile of them in inappropriate places, unless you keep a pile of them that is.
    Good luck with making more time with your day.

  4. So happy to see you back here a little Elle, and I understand about life being too busy.
    I don't think Dexter would be for me/us, lol, I am not good at watching blood and gore. :D

  5. Happy Anniversary to you too. I love celebrating each and every year. It is good to see you back again. Miss not seeing you around. Those dryer sheets are Ty's big pet peeve too. When I am mad at him or I am looking for a little trouble, the sheets can come in handy but the rest of the time, I guess it is just a unconscious thing that I do. Or maybe it's the kids who don't throw them away. I am glad that life is good for you two. That is the way I really like things to be. No surprises, no arguments, no emergencies, just one day at a time, being close to the one I love.

  6. Elle-I saw where you made a post a while ago concerning ideas for boot camp. I repsonded but I don't think it took. Anyway, I was reading Blondie's blog today (No Panty Day) and an idea came to me.
    One of the things about boot camp when there is multiple spankings involved, it has become a pain in the rear to always be unbuckling the belt,
    pulling down two sets of garments, then back up. It's always down then back up, down then back up. Given boot camp should always be in extreme seclusion, why not just leave the pants off for the duration of the camp? I am not joking. If you think about it it is very efficient. Minor infractions can be correct while wife is standing, in bed, or anywhere. If some of you are concerned about going without pants for a week or two, there are pillows, blankets, etc that can be used for comfort. After a hard spanking one time. my wife left her pants off and we took a blanket outside
    and looked at the stars, my hand on her bottom. Very romantic.
    What does everyone think?
