I have a couple of weeks left before leaving my job. At the same time, I have the same couple of weeks left before leaving the county. Oh, and over and above that, in between I am focusing on a business that I am trying to get of the ground.
So, between juggling work issues, reading some manuscripts received, editing, packing up stuff, I have now reached a point where if you look closely I am waving a white flag. Actually, you do not need to even look closely, if you look in the distance and see a large blob of white frantically moving around - that is me. I admit defeat!
Although I normally will try everything to get out a spanking, I now humbly request, can I please just crawl over a knee and have my derriere undergo a change in colour? I am tired, out of sorts, now and again going of on a temper tangent and even worse, having sulks that even I frighten myself.
I know that as that hand impacts over and over on my bottom which frankly has become quite complacent in not having any firm discussions with it, the tension in my back and shoulders will start unwinding.  I know that this awful feeling of being unsettled, being moody, from the one moment close to tears to the other ready to kill anything in sight, will go away.
I know that when the tears finally do come, and they will, I will experience a feeling of quietness inside myself, creating peace and calmness, and therefore I will no longer be waking up because I have a sore jaw from grinding my teeth, or having half-moons in my palms left from clenching my fists in my sleep.

And I know that even though my bottom will hurt, this terrible hollowness inside will be gone, I will once again safe and strong enough to face the future, no matter how difficult these last couple of weeks might be.

Big changes are stressfull and moving is stressfull.
I cannot imagine the stress of changing job, house, country all at once.
I know for sure that soon this will get better just as I know that that is no help for you at all now.
I did almost all that change recently (exchange moving country for divorce) and I am writing to you from my new house which fills me with such joy every time I enter it.

Your house and your future is waiting for you. As, I am sure, is the spanking you need.

I am thinking of you.

I thought you were gone so I haven't checked you out recently. I am so glad you are still around. Best of luck with the new business venture.

Raven, I really hope that this means you are finally over here!

Changes are always difficult, no matter how much one may have wished and dreamed of them. I really hope that yours is all the things you wanted.
