~Flight~

Wendover, Nevada. Oh my goodness: A thirty eight minute flight on a plane which was filled with excited and chatty senior citizens.  Special Man Friend found a dirt cheap weekend package, and apparently it’s very popular with the over 65 crowd.  It’s been a good giggle. (I know I’m no spring chicken.  But come on!Continue reading “~Flight~”

~Hi~

I’ve got holiday burnout. (What?  Already?) Yep. I think my enthusiasm tank was running low after Georgia’s surgery, which I haven’t written much about.  There were complications.  She’s fine.  Mostly. Yesterday we had our “official” Christmas dinner.  We did it early. I am working the Christmas holiday this year, which means I work 12 hoursContinue reading “~Hi~”

Tomorrow morning is our monthly poly potluck.  It’s a community thing, and it ranges from a handful of people, to around twenty people, depending on the month.  I don’t always attend, as I generally work Sunday nights, and I like to be home with the kids and then I sleep in the afternoon.  This monthContinue reading “~Strange~”

I’ve cut one shift every other week at theContinue reading “~Forward~”

My ex-husband is mentally ill. Not simply mentally ill.  He is utterly disabled. It is something that I had to deal with for many years, as he deteriorated, and became more volatile and violent.  He was verbally and emotionally abusive to me and the kids, and sometimes physically abusive.  When I took the kids and left,Continue reading “~Boundary~”

~Time~

I’m in the mountains this week.  It’s green and lovely, and I can hear myself think. My main thought last week:  Poly is hard, y’all. This week? Relationships are hard. Special Man and I broke up.  Nothing is ever all good, or all bad.  No person, no relationship.  But poly is especially hard.  Especially whenContinue reading “~Time~”
