Goodness, I hope I caught all the December holidays in that title! It's December. Tis the season to bicker over how to wish someone happiness and joy. Which to me is complete nonsense. ***WARNING*** The below is how I view religion, which some may find offensive. Here's the thing. If I go to someone's home,… Continue reading Happy Christmahanakwanzikayule!
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
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
September has been incredibly busy for me, and so far, it hasn't stopped. Which is good and bad. Here's the thing... I like to bounce. I'm in the middle of a novel, I volunteer as the treasurer for my writer's group, I paint and opened an Etsy shop for my doodles, I have a full… Continue reading Such a Flake
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
If you have no kids, and have no intention of ever having them, this post may not interest you. Unless you want to know our background and how we handle things. I will admit, I'm not a good parent. My example was a bipolar/paranoid mother and an (occasionally) alcoholic father. My extended family wanted nothing… Continue reading Logistics – The Brilliance/Nightmare of Co-Parenting
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?!
When I think of polar opposites, I think of contradictory things: black/white, good/bad, tall/short. But when you think about it, that's actually a misnomer. Because both polar points on Earth are ice cold. Catie and I are quite different. More like polar ice and desert heat. She likes bright sun; I like rain. She likes… Continue reading Black vs White: Polar opposites
