I've been dreading writing this entry...

*Super deep breath* 

I've been dreading writing this blog entry for a couple of days (actually, like a week). I actually really want to share some good news with everyone, but I'll have to wait, because this entry is going to suck.

My 1-year no spanking challenge has hit a slightly minor major roadblock, and I have to start over. 

Now, the minor piece of good news here is the way we have it structured is I'm starting the month over, not the entire challenge over. So, eventually I'll still get 12 months of no spanking (hopefully), which is the goal, but still, this sucks. I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really was looking forward to celebrating my "2 month no spanking challenge" here in about a week, and now it is a month behind. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement. 



I'm hurt, sad, frustrated, and extremely disappointed. I don't think ya'll have any idea how bad I wanted this. :-( 

So, for everyone asking how my challenge is going- there's your answer. I'm like a month behind schedule. Sooooo frustrating. 

The challenge has started over (by a month) for several reasons. But that's the bottom line. I made it a whole freakin' month. 

Frustrated is an understatement. 

But, I'm still determined. I'm going to make it a year. I'm determined to make this the only set back, but I can't lie and say I'm not extremely disappointed because, as the what would have been 2 month date approaches, it just makes me want to cry. I think I'm way too hard on myself.

Ok, vent over.  

Have an awesome Monday, everyone!

  2. Aww so sorry Chelsea. I must say though, your determination is very commendable. I think just having the desire to go spanking free for 12 months is amazing but you take it that one step farther and are actually doing it! You will make it there hun. Where there is a will, there's a way!

  3. Awww, I'm so sorry, but try to focus on the positive...you went an entire month! That is awesome and you should be proud of yourself. I'm trying to go a week! A month sounds about impossible. Keep up the good work and try not to be too hard on yourself.

  7. Hey ... sorry you are having a rough go. Just think, some of us (me included for sure) have a hard time going a full month. You made that goal at least! Here's to hoping that you make the whole year!!!

    2. Anon - it really isn't appropriate to ask for specifics. If Chelsea wanted to share them, she would have in the post. If this is who I think it is, you need to find something else to do with your time than to try and get details of Chelsea's spankings.

      I'm sorry Chelsea that this happened but the challenge isn't lost, just slightly delayed.

    3. You're right Christina, it's just delayed. :) Thanks for your endless support. We're going to make this 12 month challenge together!!

  13. Aww, that's frustrating, Chels! But you'll do it, I know you will! And you're still so far beyond me I'm in awe! And don't let this get you down, it's just a very brief detour, right? Hugs! :)

  14. Chelsea, I'm sorry about your setback, but in the long run, it will be minor. You will still get your 12 months while inspiring many of us along the way. You have much to be proud of.

  16. oh Chelsea I am so sorry. I know a set back can be deflating but you will bounce right back! If it makes you feel any better...my husband is home an average of 5 days a month and even with that I have yet to make it two months without a spanking. New month = fresh start! GO YOU!

  17. Oh Christina, I did not know you became Chelsea's mouth, did not ask you ... "What happened? 'What did you do to get spanked"

    1. Surely that wasn't meant to be as rude as that came across....

      To answer your question, I broke a rule that is considered a spankable offense. Thus, I got spanked.

    2. @Chris - Never Chelsea's mouth, but always her friend (and challenge partner)!
