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…
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
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
It's funny what people think when they first find out you're in a poly relationship.I've never thought of myself as a sexual deviant. 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
Ladies and gents, we have our first question! Someone was brave enough to type it and hit send. Many thanks J. The question (short version): How did you and Paul decide to have a non traditional relationship? Honestly, I've kinda been avoiding this one, simply because it started so long ago and I find it… Continue reading Our first question!!
