While Ana, Marta, and Nickki all very quickly agreed to participate again, so far only Ana has actually turned in a slip. And she did so promptly on New Year's Eve:
Not as bad as last year......but still no picnic to be sure.
On Sunday, Rosa suggested we finally get things going with this since we've been much more lax about executing this than last year where we started right in at the beginning of the month. She looked again at her daughter's recommendations and decided to reverse order and start with the "warning spanking" for 2018 of 365 smacks.
It was a fairly crisp punishment since, despite the playful idea behind a 'spanking by committee' these are meant as genuine punishments rather than play-penalties.
Not us (obviously) but a VERY accurate representation of how 90% of our punishments are done.
Later, by coincidence, Marta stopped by with her young granddaughters and it gave me and Rosa an opportunity to remind her that we were waiting for her slip. Marta assured us with a big grin and chuckle that it would be forthcoming.
Nickki has been VERY preoccupied with a load of stuff that has overshadowed her earlier agreement to also submit an appropriate punishment slip. But hopefully that too will change soon. In the meantime we have plenty to deal with just from Ana's 2017 punishment alone........1825 smacks!!!!
As with last year, Rosa has decided to do these in installments of between 250 to 300 or more over the course of several days. (The last time she did this, I was a very sorry, sore, and humble boy by the time she was done! And I don't think this time will be very different.)
