Questions from Baker..

           Baker  posted some questions pertaining to our similarities/differences...getting to know each other better...here is my 2 cents worth.

1. Are you an introvert or extrovert, or some where in between? What about your HOH?


According to chart provided, I am much more of an extrovert...I think that might be true of most teachers. If I am around a new group of people, then they probably see me as introvert. Master is positively an extrovert, checked off all of those traits in the extrovert column on your chart.


2. At what age did you realize spanking was something you were attracted to and at what length did you go to hide it?

I was a late comer, in my 40's. For a long time...years... it was all about books and fantasizing. Master was the first person who I actually had a conversation with about it. He had been to spanking 'parties' and spanked quite a few ladies.

It was freeing...and a little weird at first...talking out loud about my secret fantasies.


3. Did you know anyone else in your family who practices DD, TTWD, etc. and how did you learn they did?

No, not a sole that I am aware of....


4. Are you a homebody or outgoing?

Hmmm...both? I do enjoy my quiet days at home, but I also love going out and having fun with friends and family. I rarely refuse an invite for some fun, and will initiate outings...so maybe slightly more outgoing?


5. How do you view blogging? Is it an outlet? The way you process?

I started blogging because Master insisted...I was very hesitant...after my third post, I told him I was done...He said give it 6 months then decide....that was 7 years ago. For me it is a place of acceptance, a place where I can share an important part of me without judgement. It has become a place of friendships, new ideas, sometimes much needed very wise advice.


6. What tendencies do you see in your DD and TTWD friends and bloggers??

I see a group who have found a wonderful outlet for a part of our lives that is very private. A place we can share, learn, discuss, and feel acceptance. I see very strong woman in most parts of their lives who dared to take a step into the unknown, in an effort to better their lives, their marriages , their relationships, their curiosity. I see a group who have a delightful 'little secret' than enriches our lives, our relationship, maybe even our view of ourselves.


7. Are you a lover of the printed word?

Oh , yes, always have been. Even as a child I was often found with a nose in a book. I belong to a book club, in an effort to explore books I might not pick up on my own, and to share some wonderful discussions on the books, helping me to see some things with a new perspective. I am also loving passing that on to the grands...they are all book lovers, and would be disappointed if grandma ever showed without a new book to share. The oldest (9) and I are working on writing on illustrating a book series....we are on book 3.


8. Do you view yourself as a submissive?

The first time M used the work submissive to me, I laughed out loud and said it showed how little he really knew me. For a very long time, out of necessity, I was the in charge person..in a classroom, the oldest sibling, raising 3 children...

but my answer to that today is yes, I am a submissive, and it enriches my life, it is a part of my life that I treasure, and know how lucky I am to be traveling this road with M. Does that one word define all of me...no.


9. What traits do you see in your HOH that help you follow His lead?

Oh, my where do I start with this one...

His voice...or more exactly that certain tone, that he uses that draws me in.

His willingness to get to really know me...I am not an open book..not an 'easy read'. It took a long time, and lots of hard work for M to get me to open up, to let him in. He really knows all of me...and accepts all of me and that is a wonderful gift he has given me.

His trustworthiness...It took me way too long to really believe that when he said to me...I am here to stay, not going any place....that he meant it. I know without a doubt, that he always wants what is best for me, for us.

Thanks Baker, for a great idea for a post...

  6. Again, many thanks to Baker! Great and revealing questions. Abby, I really enjoyed learning more about M. He always seemed rather intimidating, but your responses gave him a more 3-dimensional character. Excellent man!

  8. It warms my heart hearing how M took the time to get to know you. You deserve having someone in your life who takes each moment as a gift of who you are and then turns it into who you want to be together.
