Hi there, Catie here! Happy Friday folks! How was your week? Ours was good! First things first. Paul's birthday was this week!! Don't ask me how old he is because I'm not sure. He's an age and it's in numbers. That much I know. The original plan for his birthday was a trip to CT… Continue reading Paul’s Birthday, The Get Away That Wasn’t & Five On Friday
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!
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…
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
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
I think I've mentioned that Bina will be starting college in the fall. To help pay for it, she got a fed loan. Looking to educate her on the commitment that comes with a loan, especially this type of loan, I went through every paragraph with her, explaining what everything meant. And then, I got… Continue reading Sunday Funnies – Murder!
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…
Weekends equal errands. That means fixing things, laundry, dinner ideas for the week, shopping lists, shopping at three stores-minimum, etc. This also leads to a slight blood-pressure increase. Paul is making a list with Catie for things we need in the kitchen, I'm in the bedroom. He calls for me, "Honey, can you come with… Continue reading Sunday Funnies – Bickering
Short background. T, the youngest of our family, is a little quirky. She has autistic characteristics, but not enough to be called autistic. She has ADHD characteristics, but not enough to be diagnosed with ADHD. She has this, that, and the other thing, but not enough for an official label. Whatever she is, she's high… Continue reading Monday Funnies – A collection of boyfriends
Catie has mentioned that Bina and I break into song all the time, for no reason. Today, Bina was singing Buy Me a Rainbow from Family Guy, because why not? The stupid song got stuck in my head. An hour later, I grumble, "Bina, I hate you right now." Catie hears me from the kitchen… Continue reading Hating on Bina
