An Artist’s Pet-Peeve/Soap Box

pet peeve NOUN Urban Dictionary:  Something that a person finds especially annoying. Merriam-Webster Dictionary:  A frequent subject of complaint. I prefer the urban dictionary's definition. I don't give voice to all my pet-peeve's, so I'm not sure complaint is appropriate. Then again, does a complaint need to be voiced in order to be considered a… Continue reading An Artist’s Pet-Peeve/Soap Box

The Past Week…

The past week has been quite exciting, aka--really busy. Last weekend, I had a "sleepover" at my mentor's place because we had a local book-signing event at her city's library. The event itself wasn't all that exciting. It was fairly small with only a small percentage of readers interested in romance novels. (The event was… Continue reading The Past Week…

New Kitchen Sink! & Five On Friday

Hi There, Catie here! It's that day of the week again, blogging day! Guess what guys? We have a new kitchen sink!!! Exciting, right?

Surprise!

Any and all relationships have surprise moments. When you're in a poly relationship, those moments happen a little more frequently. Our most recent "surprise!" moment was when Paul got home after work, and Catie & I told him that we were all going for a quick weekend getaway. That's right. Catie & I wanted to escape… Continue reading Surprise!

Sunday Funnies: The Definition of…

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…

Oh, Those Are Fighting Words!

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.

Sunday Funnies w/ A Side of Wicked

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

Do you want it too?!

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?!

Black vs White: Polar opposites

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
