Hi There, Catie here! It's that day of the week again, blogging day! Guess what guys? We have a new kitchen sink!!! Exciting, right? Its a big, deep, shiny single basin number that makes me very happy. Getting it installed was far from easy and not without a few surprises but so worth it. Yes I… Continue reading New Kitchen Sink! & Five On Friday
Hi there, Catie here. Happy Thursday! I should have started this post Sunday night but there was a new episode of Bob's Burgers on so blogging got bumped. Priorities, people! Anyway back to the subject at hand. Paul, Lena and I had a fantastic offspring-free weekend away! We didn't go too far, just a couple… Continue reading We Love Thruple-Only Get Aways!
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
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
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
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
