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.

Sorry, guys…

I really do hope to get back on topic here and have a bit of fun again. Just not sure when that will be. Hope you’ll all stick around until then.

John is walking a bit every day, showering and washing his hair, etc. We talk twice a day. He is very tired and weak, as is expected, but the bizarre thing is that his biggest complaint right now is the sore throat and cough he has from the breathing tube being in there so long. This morning, he said, and I quote: “This cough is killing me.” I begged him to please choose other verbiage.

I will head there Friday, do his laundry, change his sheets, replenish his groceries, spend the weekend as per usual. Here’s a bit of silver lining in all this mess: I finally, finally got him to throw out all his old sponges. I swear, that man keeps sponges until they crumble into dust. It’s disgusting. When I told him that I read sponges are the germiest thing in the house and we were getting rid of his, period, he didn’t argue.

He’s eating a little, but still has no appetite, which bothers me. But then again, he’s not moving much either. So he doesn’t need that many calories, I guess.

Heading for the gym for the first time this week. The Basket Case needs some endorphins. Later…

  2. I hope John gets well soon, and then first act in his new condition thoroughly spanks you for the implicit suggestion that we might leave fro you sharing your thoughts & feeling these days.
    Well, may be the second act. The first one he might wish to reserve for a concern of more direct relevance. πŸ˜‰

  3. LOL, sometimes you just have to put your foot down about some things, like the sponges. I probably would have gone the fun route of throwing them away while he wasn’t looking and then got spanked for it later. Win, win!

    It’s okay if you aren’t “on topic” but by the title of your blog, you actually are as this falls under Life and Love. ❀️

  5. Jay nailed it there. The title of the blog is Life, Love & Spanking. Life needs love in it. Then some spanking. You’re doing very well. Both of you. Please just keep on keeping on.

  8. Pick up some Lemon Mint Ricola for John; they should help his throat. They aren’t minty, just lemony and good for sore throats. Glad to hear he is up and about, even if its slow.

    • KB — honestly, not great. It’s been a rough week with a lot of concerns and about a dozen meltdowns on my end. But John is finally having a home care nurse visit him today, and I am taking him for a doctor’s appointment tomorrow morning. So hopefully things will get better.
