Hi there, Catie here! So I was recently asked how I ended up in this poly relationship. I wish I could have answered with some flowery notions about love not being finite and people not belonging in boxes with labels. But I feel like we've covered that here. And then I was going to tell… Continue reading Sometimes It Really Is All About The Sex
Or rather things that didn't happen. Hi there, Catie here! As a family we all love Autumn. Here in New England the weather gets cool and we break out our sweaters and hoodies. The air is crisper, the sky a brighter blue, and our trees turn the most amazing shades of yellow, orange and red.… Continue reading Fall Happenings
Nah. Though I can understand how people do a lot of things they shouldn't for money, I don't see it as evil. Money is a tool; just like a car, or a toothbrush. It's something people use in order to attain a desired goal. A car transports you from point A to point B. If… Continue reading The Root of All Evil?
Would you like to get into a passionate discussion in this house? Here are some of the things you should mention: Biggles/Felix/Horace/Prix (pick one) is the best cat in the house. This will open up a whole conversation on who's the best. We all have our favorites, but Prix is, of course, the cutest, most… Continue reading Oh, Those Are Fighting Words!
Yesterday, the three of us went to see a good friend of mine, my writing mentor, for a book signing. But before leaving, Paul grabbed the mail, and one of the items was a small package. I should mention that this house gets packages all the time, (not kidding, it's - all the time!) so… Continue reading Sunday Funnies w/ A Side of Wicked
At the risk of sounding like your sex-ed teacher from 8th grade, let's chat about condoms for a second. A couple of posts ago, I mentioned that I didn't like them. And I still don't. BUT there's a reason for that. They dry me up. Think Sahara. That doesn't mean I don't stay safe. I… Continue reading “Plastic Wrap” Alternatives
Sorry, folks. September has been quite a busy month for us, and it's only been a couple of weeks. T started high school at the end of August and Bina started college right after Labor Day. I had to put my Treasurer's hat on again for my writers group (our fiscal year begins in September)… Continue reading Sunday Not-So-Funnies
Hi there, Catie here. We're going to be writing a few logistics posts that cover the day to day chaos of our poly-relationship. Every family is different and works these things out for themselves, it's another of those "there is no right way" things. Lena: One would think that something as simple as sleeping wouldn't… Continue reading Logistics: Sleeping Arrangements
First, I should mention that Catie and I don't have letters after our names; no LPN, PhD, or MD. We are not what you would call "professionals." So everything we share is our personal experiences, thoughts, and opinions. Please consider this when you read our posts. Because this kind of life isn't for everyone. When… Continue reading Do you want it too?!
This isn't your normal blog post. Then again, we're not your "normal" family, so I think it's appropriate to have non-normal things on here. The below are random tidbits of conversations you would hear if you were nearby... I hope you enjoy! Early in the morning: Catie (from the kitchen): Paul hit me! Me (walking… Continue reading Sunday Night Funnies – Heard around the house…
