I finally have something exciting to blog about! Yay!
This past weekend my husband and I attended the annual Shadowlane party in Las Vegas! Spankings AND Vegas?? Yes, please!
This party could not have come at a better time for me. Due to vanilla commitments, I was unable to attend any parties this past summer. Going this long from BBW to now and not seeing any scene friends has been torture!!
My mind has been "bat-shit-crazy" lately thanks to an unwanted job position transfer, a personal issue that has been haunting me for several months, and just not being able to take anxiety meds due to said personal issue. Pretty much EVERYTHING had been making me anxious. My anxiety attacks embarrass me, but most of the time I can control the lies and stay calm. Unfortunately, with all the added stress lately, it has been difficult to keep calm. When I get like this, my brain likes to tell lies and I am teetering on a fine line of being normal and freaking out. Worst part is, once I start freaking out more lies enter and I freak out about other people knowing I am freaking out or that my freak outs are pissing off my friends. It's been a joy.
So late Thursday afternoon I was very antsy to get started with my road trip. Work was freaking me out and the thoughts of leaving my vanilla woes behind was very appealing. I practically ran out to my husband's car so we could get started on our drive to airport. The drive felt slow and getting though security was long! You could probably understand my frustration when we were told that our flight was to be delayed an hour. Pubsie took me to get a drink and forced me to eat something ( too excited to be hungry!) and luckily decided to do a quick check on our flight status! We could not hear the announcements where we were, so we almost missed that our flight was back on time and currently boarding!
Rushing back to our gate I did a little squeal of joy. I couldn't stand the thought of having to wait even longer and I've never ever had a flight that was delayed end up leaving on time after all! Working our way on to the plane, I noticed a man in his seat checking out the backside of the woman in front of me. On closer inspection I realized it was Inspectherhide and decided to point my finger at him and smirk knowing EXACTLY what he was doing. He knew he was busted so we both laughed, waved, and teased each other via Fetlife. It is fun knowing that other spankos were on the plane! Inspectherhide also offered to drive us to the hotel in his rental car!
As Pubsie and Inspectherhide went to pick up the rental car, I waited on my lovely wifey Aurora to hurry up and land! I kept my eyes peeled for a blond midget in heels, and after what felt like forever I was finally able to give my wifey a huge hug!!!! We grabbed her luggage and met the guys and were FINALLY able to head towards the hotel. As exhausted as I was, I was getting a second wind of energy due to pure excitement! Once at the hotel, Aurora, Pubsie and I headed up to our suite on the tenth floor that we were sharing with our dear friends Kor-E and Maria! Excited we shared hugs and I knew I could not ask for better suite mates. A quick change and I was ready to head down to the party and meet up with everyone!!
UNFORTUNATELY, we landed pretty late and most people had already left the suites. As we headed down, we managed to bump into Stacy, Crashdance, OlympicSpanker, and Somaholiday. Hugs abound, I was hoping to convince the tired group to rally but was unsuccessful. A couple of swats from OS and knowing I would see them all soon and that we had a whole weekend, Aurora and I headed down to greet a few more people in Joe's Suite. Dirk, Ros, Strictdave, Beth, Ellee, and YoggSothoth were still up, so more hugs were abound! One of the funnier moments was when YS was trying to get Beth and/or Ellee to head to bed with him. Neither girl wanted to go and YS announced to Beth that the suite was dead anyway. Of course all of us who were sitting there turned to him and shouted, "HEY!" We could not let that comment slide without giving him a hard time.
Aurora and I managed to stay up and watch as the suite did finally empty with the exception of Joe, Strictdave, and Ellee. Strictdave was helping to adjust the St. Andrew's Cross and spanking bench that Joe manage to rent for the weekend and did a short scene with Ellee. Joe announced that it would be awesome to have an audience which caused both Aurora and I to shout out "HEY!" again. Laughing we left the suite and headed up to our room to get some rest for the long, spanking filled weekend ahead!
