The holidays are always a fun time for all, including us. Though some of us (ahem--Catie) get a little extra stressed because they have to host. I get it. There's a lot to do: plan, buy, cook, serve. Some like this, others want that, and throw allergies into the mix for an extra helping of… Continue reading Happy-Happy-Joy-Joy
Hi there, Catie here! Has anyone else noticed that it's Thanksgiving week here in the US? Because someone should have sent me a memo or something this year. I remembered that we agreed to host Paul's family this year at some point during the summer but that was so long ago that it was really… Continue reading Happy HoliDaze?!?!
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
Hi there, Catie here! Big news! Well, for us anyway... This post could have just as easily been called "We Will Never Take A Family Vacation Again" because..... Bina Got A Job!!!! Hip Hip Hooray!! We have been gently pushing her to get a job since she graduated high school. This is a great big… Continue reading Wednesday – Changes In The Air
Sorry folks, lots of happenings going on in our corner of the world. And though Catie and I have chatted about our next post often enough, things went slightly awry and it didn’t happen. Until now! First, we--wait. Let’s go in reverse. The most recent thing that happened was a family visit due to the… Continue reading Oy, It’s Been a While
Hi there, Catie here. Ever have "one of those days"? A day where nothing truly tragic has happened but at the same time nothing has really gone right either? The quick rundown: I woke up exhausted, it was a bad night sleep between one thing and another (or should I call them Thing 1 and… Continue reading Monday
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
I often wonder how people view us when we go out as a group. I’m sure most don’t care, but there’s gotta be a few who wonder what’s going on between us. For example, a while ago, the four of us gals went out to dinner with Catie’s parents. We went out for trivia night,… Continue reading Labels: “The Girlfriend”
Funny story... Do you guys remember myspace? Does anyone still use it? Well, once upon a time, many years ago, I did one of those Get to Know You quizzes and I passed it on. I had done a thousand of those and didn't think anything about it. The quiz was Only One Word. For example: "favorite… Continue reading Sunday Funnies: The Definition of…
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?
