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

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?

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

When… Continue reading Do you want it too?!

There are moments when I wish I had a more adventurous soul, but honestly? I like my comfort. Have I "done it" in the woods? Yes. Have I "done it" in a… Continue reading A Poly Reputation
So far, we've written about how well we work together, how wonderful our family is, how idealistic everything is. The truth is, it's not always sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns. Just like any other family, we bicker, we tiff, we argue. Communication breaks down, someone gets a little loud, and someone else gets the silent treatment.… Continue reading A less-than-perfect world
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..." Well, that isn't an answer. So I'm going to self analyze here. After all, we did say we were… Continue reading To tell or not to tell, that is the question…
