Has it Really Been 2 Years Already?

Time sure does fly. It seems like just yesterday that we were taking those first few hesitant steps along this journey. Today we're celebrating two years of being a DD couple.



When I look back on our journey, I'm amazed at how much we've grown in the past two years. The lessons we've learned along the way have worked to make our marriage stronger than it's ever been.

I stumbled onto the concept of DD by accident. I was following links from site to site and somehow found myself on a site about DD. Initially, the idea seemed a bit crazy to me. Yet something about it intrigued me so I found myself searching out more and more information. Eventually, it didn't seem like such a crazy idea to me. The question was whether it would seem like a crazy idea to Steve. The fear that he would think it was crazy is why it took me over a year to work up my nerve to talk to him about it.

As I look back today, I no longer see me coming across DD as an accident, but rather something that was destined. When you think about how many sites there are on the internet, what are the odds that I would come across a site about DD while following links. I'm reminded of a quote by Deepak Chopra: "There are no accidents...there is only some purpose that we haven't yet understood."

In other news, I finally talked Steve into adding some leather to our collection of implements. He gave his okay for me to shop for something and I ended up getting a leather paddle from Cane-iac. I forgot how quick they ship. I ordered it on Friday and it was here Monday morning. I gave it to him that evening, but he hasn't got a chance to try it out yet because we haven't had the time or privacy. Is it bad that I smirk when I say that?


Also in other news, I hit my limit with the way things are right now. I tried so hard to keep it together through his crazy work schedule and the lack of alone time, but it finally got to me on Thursday. I blame Mother Nature's little gift of hormones for pushing me over the edge. Unfortunately, once I got started, I had trouble stopping so I've landed myself in a bit of hot water since then. I may be regretting that new purchase if we ever get some alone time.

  2. 2 years is a big milestone Dana. Glad you guys have come so far.

    Perseverance is key to dealing with your husband's work schedule. Keep talking to him about it though, as letting him know you wish it was otherwise communicates to him that you care about the two of you. Doing so isn't complaining about it or making all about him filling your needs, but a legitimate concern for the state of your marriage. If you state this in a respectful and in a non-nagging sort of way, I think he will appreciate that.

    1. Thanks foothills. I have been talking to Steve about how I feel.. I've been very careful to let him know that it was the situation I was frustrated with rather than him. And he understands because he's just as frustrated with it as I am.

  3. Happy DDversary Dana and Steve. I totally agree...you were led to those links for a reason. You and Steve are doing great...I am sorry you may be regretting your new purchase soon but then think about how each of you would have handled this situation a bit over two years ago. A bit of a sore bum and clean slate are much better. ;) Keep up the positive attitude.

    Hugs and Blessings...

    1. Thanks Cat. And yes, I'd much rather deal with a sore bottom than the distance that we let get between us in the past.

  4. Congrats on 2 years. I can barely imagine getting to 3 months at this point. As for the attitude and the purchase - good luck with that. My most avoidable implement is a leather paddle from cane-iac.

    1. Thanks Erika. You will get there eventually. I can remember the early days of wondering whether we'd make it to the next month. Now looking back, the time seems to have flown by.

  5. Ah c'mon girl...You are own the butt that breaks implements! The girl with the Supergirl undies. The one who 'survived' shingles over Thanksgiving...and illness over another holiday ( hey my memory is good, I just can't remember the next one you were sick over)...you muddled through a harrowing snow storm accident...and a hellish land lord. You can handle a little leather!!!

    Happy to have been following along for most of these two years!

    1. LOL Thanks Willie. When you put it that way, leather should be a breeze. And I think it was the flu over Christmas that same year followed by a toothache on our anniversary a few months after that. I just don't have good luck with holidays.

    1. Thanks Roz. After going so long without a spanking, I'm hoping that my buns remember that they're made of steel.

  7. Congrats on the two years!! That's so exciting! :) As for the leather paddle - girl are you crazy? Lol.. We have a leather paddle from caneiac as well, and I'm hoping for the sake of your butt - you didn't get the same one! ;)

    1. Thanks Kenzie. So far the leather paddle hasn't been tested so I can't say for sure whether I'm crazy or not. I just knew I needed something that wasn't wood seeing as how nearly everything else we have is wood.

      Does yours have a heart?

  8. Congrats on your 2 year DD-iversary! Hmmm, a new leather paddle you say? Well, it's got to be better than wood, right? Well, I hope so for your sake, especially since it sounds like Steve may have good reason to try it out soon! I was going to say that I hope that the two of you get some alone time soon...but...I'm not sure now whether you're hoping for that or not. lol
