We never wait on the curb, always far out into the lane. I think driving in the city is what bronco riding must be like. Add snow, heck even just rain, and it's ten times worse! Whenever I drive here, I am gripping the steering wheel and gritting my teeth in terror, LOL.

Drivers here are nutz!!!!1!!one!!1
Wow, we are much more polite in Boston. Snow makes people friendlier and less reserved.

In the mean time I've got laundry to fold and a delicious spaghetti and Italian sausage dinner to make.
Another person who plays Words with Friends. I've only been playing about a week, but love it.

Heh, I'm glad to see we're not the only ones who do this. We usually have one of the three original movies playing in the background while we clean house.

Wife and I are having breakfast before we do the weekly grocery shopping. We're also waiting for the next wave of winter storms to hit; last week we got about 3-4 inches, but it was all gone by the next day. Not sure how much snow they're calling for tonight, but chances are it'll be gone again in 24 hours. At least it's snowing in the mountains around here. That way, instead of a really, really, really bad water year this summer we'll just have a really bad one .

I got to see SNOW today! SO pretty. Got BFTS (boyfriend tech support) to help fix my parents wireless connection. Sat down to laptop ~ it's on a desk that faces the huges sliding glass door that looks out on a small lake with the trees and the other houses across and snow flurries. Fortunately, nothing stuck. so beautiful.

Homemade sauerkraut with pork roast for dinner last night. Football today, with snow (tv is in the middle of two picture windows (on the non-lake side). Hanging out with my 'rents. It just really doesn't get any better.

I did dislocate a rib while doing tech support. That is stoopidly painful. But, the main purpose of the visit was to hang out with dad to take him to chiropractic tomorrow, and I get adjusted too.
YAY!

I'm doing alright, Wendigo just broke the news to us that Pretty Lady wants to go back to being just friends. She's not comfortable with all the talking required by poly; she's not really good at expressing herself, her needs, or desires to anyone but Wendigo and the game of telephone just wasn't working anymore. She was worried about hurting our feelings because she knew we really liked her. So now I guess we're a "V".

Finally had a real snowfall this Saturday, watched my little son and his dad play in it on Sunday.

My husband and I are making plans with my email friend and his wife for us to meet. The practicalities still have to be worked out, but this is exciting!

I am home with a cold today, being babied by the resident grandma in our home.

Other than the sniffles, coughs and sneezes life is good!

This gets extra frustrating for me. She apparently decided months ago she wanted nothing to do with us in that way, but failed to tell anyone. I've been living within boundaries set so that Pretty Lady would be okay and feel comfortable, and thus shutting down other opportunities for, well, anything.

The only good side to this is that now I don't have to push everyone away and if the option for a new, fulfilling, relationship crops up I can actually act on it. It hurts how I found out, and that it happened, but it's a good kind of pain. Like the pain after a surgery but before it's fully healed. Our relationship, or lack there of, was a major sore spot with me.

Oh, so you were poly-fi for PL's benefit, but she wouldnt have sex w you for months? Now that she's admitted she wants to be platonic, Wendigo is fine with you looking for others?

Wow. Too bad she left you hanging all those months.

He is. He's actually actively encouraging me. He knows there are things I need that I can't get in my current situation. He also feels terrible about the whole thing once he realized how under my skin it was getting.

I understand why. With her upbringing she avoids confrontation like the plague and does not like to hurt people. She's got a very kind heart and I don't think she knew how much the situation was hurting me, otherwise she'd of spoken up earlier.

I understand it, but it still hurts.
