New Roomies & Walking Dates
Have a casual walking date with Mahogany this evening, mostly in order to give her space about her first outside-of-marriage sexual encounter that she just had with her tentative secondary partner, B. She didn't sound like she was in a totally great place about it, and I'm curious to hear what happened, and looking forward to being a supportive ear to her.
Our kitchen is in shambles, so takeout is on the menu tonight; we unthinkingly scheduled the reno for the same week that our new roomie/tenant was moving in - she's been out of country on holiday until now, and it just kind of slipped my mind. Everything will be put back together by the end of tomorrow, and she seems just fine with it, but we're still treating her to Indian tonight, as I feel back for the kitchen looking "batshit crazy" as I so aptly described it to her. So far we seem to be getting along like wildfire - she's on call for substitution as a teacher, and didn't end up working, so I suggested she come down to my business and meet me for lunch so I could show her around the Downtown. I took a longer break than normal and we just moseyed around, and I got to know her a little better. She's from a small town like I am, and we seem to have a really solid groove so far; have not told her about my extracurricular activities yet, but am not anticipating drama when I do. Seems like she has a fairly liberal viewpoint on things.
A little lost in the land of Lily, but don't want to go into heavy talks with her as she had decided to make a shift in her partnership with A. They have been together since August, if memory serves and he has been "trying poly on." This has meant that while he has another girlfriend, his other girlfriend is mono-minded, and does not approve of, or want to meet Lily. Lily is big on meeting metamours, and it has been increasingly bothersome to her. She really wants a primary partner who is poly, and I know that on some level she was hoping for this connection to develop between her and A., so this is a tough time for her. I'm just giving her space to make decisions and process that, and doing my thing, keeping in touch with her and letting her know that I'm here for her, and love her no matter what. She's doing some big re-evaluations in her life right now - new business venture, new house that she just signed a lease on with her roomie, and a burgeoning new relationship that she feels has real potential. I'm excited for her, but a little worried about the rapidity of so much change in her life. She's also cut out drinking over the last few months, and understandably is facing up to a lot of things that have surfaced in her newfound sobriety. Just care so much about her and want her to be happy....
Off I go for Indian food with the new roomie and the hubby! Then walks with Mahogany, and hopefully some down time by myself to gear up for a busy day shooting videos with Google tomorrow. Woot!
Wherever you go.... there you are.
