If I've learned anything about spanking it's that you can't just spank because you can. My wife has been going through a very rough time do to stomach problems. Her doctor started her on a medication that seemed to provide some relief of the pain for awhile but it wasn't doing the job completely. More tests were done and now new medication should take care of what was going on.
So I explained that to explain that during the last 3 or 4 months things, as in rules, haven't been getting done. Any other asshole Dominant Husband might just spank away and not consider other factors. I don't spank just to spank. I look at as much of what's going on as I can. Are there emotional issues going on that need to be addressed, such as illness, a death in the family or a friend and so on. You can't just spank because you want to spank that's not right.
Things have gotten lax around the house but with this new medication I'm hoping first and foremost that my wife is feeling better and back to her ol' self. Once she is it will be much easier for her to get caught up with things. It's not just what I want in the matter it's also what she wants. She wants things to be in order and clean. She wants to go to the gym on a regular basis. But first she wants to feel better and not be in pain all the time.
