Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

Goodbye, 2014

So, let’s review, shall we?

In the past two weeks, we had two family deaths, two days apart. John and I are now both sick, so that’s two colds. We’ve had to deal with his two sisters behaving like animals. And, due to the stress of it all, we’ve had two arguments.

Is it safe to say that the end of 2014 has been a great big pile of Number Two???


I am going to his house tonight, where we’ll have a quiet night in. He’s sick as hell right now (I’m getting over mine), so no festivities, except for some champagne. But it’s OK. We’ll be together.Β 

I was able to see Steve for a bit of stress relief yesterday, but only for a short while, because he had work obligations. We didn’t play long, but we played hard. I didn’t weep while he was here, but I broke down after he left. I wish he could have stayed longer. I needed his strength.

We didn’t take any photos, and we didn’t last week, either. I miss that. When this whole mess is over, we want to get back to fun scenes and lots of pictures. But yesterday, I was in a melancholy yet hopeful mood, and I wanted to try to capture that in a picture by myself.

So, here I am at the end of 2014. Things seem very bleak and colorless right now, and I feel beaten down and vulnerable. But I keep telling myself this all will pass, and some vibrancy and color will come back into my days soon. I am curled up and have gone within, withdrawn into shadow… but with the cheeriness of the flowers Steve brought for me providing a small, bright beacon.

Readers, friends, wishing you all the best for 2015. Be safe tonight, whatever you’re doing.Β

  7. Erica,

    I'll quote the saying I found on morningstar's blog today: “May the best of your past be the worst of your future!”

    I hope 2015 is better for you.



  8. Erica, that were more than two flowers, as on more than two occasions.;-)) And, oh, I believe you had more than two spankings, in 2014. May all that, and more, be bestowed upon you again in 2015. And than you for your blog this year!
    Hope you had a good night with John.
    Oh – no complaints on the picture from this side – it has artistic quality.


  9. I'm going to wish you into the 2015 world of your blog's wallpaper – those beautiful flowers. With a hug, Jon


  10. Erica,

    I hope 2015 is a better year for you and John. Best wishes to you both.

    MrJ — I just meant the tail end of 2014 was #2, not all of it. πŸ™‚ Certainly there were many good things as well. Poor John was sicker than hell last night, so no festivities for us — we went to bed before midnight.

    Jon — thank you. Happy 2015 to you.

    Ronnie — me toooo! Happy 2015 to you and P/

    Six — I'll save the cake for when we are ready to celebrate something. But thank you.

    Kelly — for both of us!

    I truly hate the pain you and John are suffering through right now. May the worst of the nightmare John spoke of be over.

    Wishing you an excellent 2015 in every sense of the word excellent. Your blog has become very important to me.

  19. Mouse — wishing you all the best as well. Thank you.


  20. You always show us how a keen sense of humor is a splendid survival tool, keeping what would otherwise overwhelm in some perspective, but two much is too much! So I'll be eager to hear when things level off and take an upturn. In the meantime, I add my love to the rest here!


  21. Wolfie — I try. And believe me, I do get overwhelmed. Just ask John. But humor saves me from getting ever more so.
