Christmas Dry Spell

Christmas for me is about stress. Ever since I reached the age where I began purchasing gifts for friends and family. I always want to find that perfect present. I really look for personal gifts. Finding something that I know a person would enjoy is always a goal. Often there will be something that is a joke or memory attached, or something they  really need.

One year I found a rare Care Bear on Ebay that my Aunt collects. Another year I did and Etsy Christmas were all my gifts were handmade and I made my own cards and wrapping paper. That was obviously before we had kids and I still had time and money to burn.

For the last few years Christmas has been a mad scramble. I am usually optimistic when I start the shopping list and budget in early November. But by the first week in December I am a mess. I am almost always over budge (four years and counting) and can never find time to get caught up with everything that needs done.

The wrapping piles up until the last hours before Christmas. This year everything is down in the basement as that’s the only place we can regulate the kids’ access. And every night I plan to go down and get a little bit done, but some other immediate need comes up and it continues to be pushed off.

Then there are the last minute, “oh shit” people that I forget to buy for. This year it was the boys’ teachers. Last year it was the husband’s boss. So some last minute shopping trip(s) is inevitable. Again sucking up time and ruining my carefully planned budget even more.

I know, my whining has nothing to do with kink. But it has a lot to do with sex. As in, we don’t have any. I haven’t done a factual study, but I’d wager that December is easily my sexless month. Jack’s recent visit aside, obviously (that is not, though hopefully will be standard). I am just too stressed out. I hardly sleep. Getting to bed late and up early doesn’t give us many sexy opportunities.

There is also the influx of extended family time. This year they are coming to our house. Which, while it does mean we get to sleep in our own bed, does mean that quietness is paramount. When we travel I always feel a little weird having sex in someone else’s house. A hotel is fine, but I never know how squeaky someone’s guest bed is, or, how thin the walls are.

So we usually spend the weekend drinking, getting horny, and then going to bed frustrated. Or we’ll stay up chatting with family or fighting with the kids to stay in bed until we pass out. Either way, I guess I should only speak for me, but I’m a grumpy mess by the time everyone leaves. Making sure that everyone else is having a good time and getting everything they need is exhausting. And as I only get Monday off this year since Christmas falls on a Sunday, I’ll be heading back to work on Tuesday. My poor co-workers.

**To spite this post I grabbed the Doxy and had a marvelous orgasm last night. To spite me right back, as soon as I put the Doxy away I remembered I don’t have a dinner planned for tonight.**

2016 Cookie Exchange

The holidays are upon us. And that means that blogging cookie exchange is back for another year. I have found (and hopefully shared) some great recipes with all the bloggers that take part. Check out what everyone has to offer and try out some new recipe this holiday.

This year I decided to offer a sweet and a savory option. The first is a chocolate fudge recipe that a friend for work gave me. It’s so much simpler than any other recipe I’ve tried and it tastes great. My savory idea is for your holiday leftovers. I can only take so many turkey sandwiches. And really, I use this recipe all year round with any extra meat or veg to make good leftovers or feed a large group. You can double it easily.

Enjoy! And don’t forget to check out everyone else’s offerings.

Happy Holidays!

The Indecipherable Language of My Mind

Part of me wanted to write up a post on how much I hate Columbus Day so I could avoid the draft post in my queue.

So, mini-rant, Columbus Day is a crap holiday. Rather than celebrating him we should focus on someone who didn’t just get lost. However, as my office is closed today and I’m heading to get my sleeve tattoo finished, I have decided that any extreme rant could be seen as hypocritical.

The draft post of the last week’s vacation has had to be moved out of my drafts so that I can edit it better. It’s currently sitting at around 3,500 words and I’m no where near done. I think I’m going to have to split it up into numerous posts so that my thoughts makes sense. The general theme is an amazingly relaxing vacation with lots of orgasms and good food. But I have been slightly blindsided by some of the emotional aftershocks that I have had.

Hopefully I can put some of it down in a way that makes sense and start posting it over the next few days. I also have over 1,000 photos that were taken to go through. I think only about 50 were taken by me of the food and train ride I took. The rest are sex, a lot of sex. So lots of blurring faces and masturbation breaks ahead.

Oh yeah, I’ll post pictures of the tattoos I got in Los Angeles and the sleeve I finish today as well. I love how busy this makes me seem.

Happy 4th

Hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday. The shopping is done and we have no where to go. May grill up some meat and veggies and hang out in the back yard today.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be celebrating our independence with a cup of coffee and a banned book.

Small Accomplishments

IMG_0613When I was eight months pregnant and so ready to have this endlessly dancing child out of me, Sir bought be a present. It was a five year ‘one line a day’ journal. I really try to write every day and this was a big help. I still have a larger journal and this blog to let me write more than a few lines, but it’s good to review the day each night.

And tonight will be my last night writing in this book. When I started it in 2011 it seemed so far away to 2015. But rereading the last few years as I filled in the final slots felt like a huge accomplishment. Boiling down a long day or a stressful event to just a few lines makes things seem small. And saying goodbye to this book will difficult. Both my children were born in this journal. I lost a co-worker, our first dog, and my grandfather in these years. I’m not going to burn the journal (obviously), but it will be hard to put it down and start something new.

IMG_0611Sir bought me a new book earlier this year. So I would be ready to go when this one finished. We found one that didn’t quite have so much of a fifties look to it. But the set up is pretty much the same.

This new book will have several new pieces of our lives. We will move into our family home next year. Hopefully our BDSM will continue to grow as we find the best way to make D/s fit. I’m sure there will be more loss (hopefully not too much) as that is just part of life. But I’ll be focusing on the positive as much as possible. And hopefully a lot of lines will be filled with sex and service.

We don’t have much planned for tonight. I’m sure we will find something to fill my last lines with though. Hope you all have a lovely New Years’ Eve and a wonderful 2016.

Best wishes for your health and your kinky lives.

 

2015 Cookie Exchange

Souerbraten

Ingredients:

1 beef roast (about 2lbs)

2 large onions

½ cup coarsely chopped celery leaves

1 ½ cups red wine

1 cup red wine vinegar

1 Tbs. salt

1 tsp. freshly ground pepper

2 Tbs. sugar

2 tsp mustard seeds

1/8 tsp freshly ground nutmeg

6 cloves

1 Tbs. parsley

2 bay leaves

2 Tbs. olive oil

¼ cup gingersnap crumbs

Preparation:

Put the roast in a large sealable plastic bag. Add sliced onions and celery leaves. In a bowl, mix together the wine, vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar, mustard seeds, nutmeg, cloves, parsley and bay leaves. Pour into the bag and seal tightly.

Place the bag in a baking dish and refrigerate for 2 to 3 days, turning the bag over every twelve hours to marinate.

Remove the meat from the marinade (keep the marinade).

Season the roast with salt and pepper. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the oil. Once hot add the meat and brown on all sides. Pour in the marinade and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the meat is very tender, about 2 ½ to 3 hours. Remove the meat from the pot and keep warm. Strain the marinade.

Whisk in the gingersnap crumbs. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring until desired thickness.

Serve roast with the marinade sauce. Serves 4.

This dish is best served with red cabbage and potato dumplings.

And after you are full of classic German goodness:

Peanut Butter Blossoms

Ingredients:

1 ¾ cup flour

½ cup sugar

½ cup brown sugar, packed

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

½ cup shortening

½ cup peanut butter

2 Tbs. milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1 egg

sugar

1 pkg. Hershey Kisses, unwrapped

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375. Combine all ingredients. Beat at low speed until stiff dough is formed. Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll in sugar and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 min. until golden brown. Remove from oven and immediately top with kiss, pushing down until cookie cracks. Remove from sheet to cool.

I miss these cookies. Since we found out our toddler has a peanut allergy neither my dad nor I has made them. They are so delicious. The kisses melt from the bottom up and they stay gooey for awhile. They are a great treat for teachers and the first to disappear at parties.

Happy Thanksgiving!

A very late Happy Thanksgiving to all! Lots of hikes and food and cider kept me from my computer today, but please know I was thinking of you all.

Updates and clarification to follow after the last few days. It’s been hectic and emotional, but positive. And right now I’m calling that a win after the last few weeks of answered questions and confusion.

Wishing everyone a great evening. And, if you are foolish enough to go shopping at horrific hours of the morning, please be safe. Nothing ruins a gluttonous holiday like being trampled racing for 50″ TV.
