“Plastic Wrap” Alternatives

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

Logistics – The Brilliance/Nightmare of Co-Parenting

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

Communication breaks down, someone gets a little loud, and someone else gets the silent treatment.… Continue reading A less-than-perfect world

To tell or not to tell, that is the question…

Catie and I are chatting about spreading the word on this blog via twitter. Her account is setup to automatically share new posts as they come out. Mine is not. "Why not?" you may ask. "Because..."

   How much love can one heart hold?  Strange question, no? Certainly most individuals love their parents, their siblings. Okay, at least on some days. People love their extended family, right? Their close friends? Is there a max? Maybe just enough for a spouse? Maybe barely sufficient for children? Wait. Does the love a person… Continue reading Love as a rainbow…
