Mmmmm...poly-wise I am feeling happy and contented.
Work has been stressful and demanding, there is a boat-load of work to be done at home as well. But having the support of my two boys makes things seem doable.
I feel like our relationships have grown and stabilized over the last few months. We are functioning as "family" and it feels very natural. THIS is what I want - who knew?
How I like to start my day: alarm goes off, hit snooze 3-4 times, get up, drink some coffee, smoke some cigarettes and catch up on the forums here. My "get ready" alarm on my phone goes off and I feed the dogs and put them out, go get ready for work, let the dogs in. Last thing - I walk into the bedroom and look at my boys - sprawled and snoring - tangled in blankets and pillows - gaze longingly at my "middle" spot but know I have to leave. I kiss MrS behind the ear and he moans "Mmmmm" and smiles. I walk around the bed and kiss Dude on the cheek - he murmurs "Love you, sweetie." and resumes snoring, I drive off with those images in my head and it makes the whole day that much more bearable.
Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (24+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (5+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
SLeW: platonic girlfriend and BFF
Lotus: "it's complicated"
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
