Dare I disagree with Mr. Gump's Mama? Dare I say that life isn't "like a box of chocolates," but is, instead, a roller-coaster ride? Because that's how I feel right now. No sooner is something resolved than something else breaks. There have been some recent developments that we haven't shared with you guys. Not because… Continue reading The Hunt
Once upon a time, there was a trio who wanted to buy a new mattress. The first, Catie, really liked a soft mattress. The kind that you lay on and you feel like you're sleeping on a cloud. Hi there, Catie here. Not quite cloud soft, I do like some support think pillow top. The… Continue reading Adventures in Mattress Shopping
It's the annual "resolutions" time and I have several. hahaha Just kidding. Once upon a time, I tried, but I no longer bother. They just don't work for me. My goals are accomplished with steps and habits, not with resolutions. But hey, if they work for you, rock on! I am, however, one of those… Continue reading Happy New Year!
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
September has been incredibly busy for me, and so far, it hasn't stopped. Which is good and bad. Here's the thing... I like to bounce. I'm in the middle of a novel, I volunteer as the treasurer for my writer's group, I paint and opened an Etsy shop for my doodles, I have a full… Continue reading Such a Flake
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
Sorry, folks. September has been quite a busy month for us, and it's only been a couple of weeks. T started high school at the end of August and Bina started college right after Labor Day. I had to put my Treasurer's hat on again for my writers group (our fiscal year begins in September)… Continue reading Sunday Not-So-Funnies
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
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?!
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…
