An unexpected overnight with Whip. Lovely to wake up with him on a holiday.

Have been going like a mad woman the last two days.

Managed to make the men in my life pretty happy despite being pulled in multiple directions.

Spent this morning with both my husband and boyfriend with the kids this AM. Had a pretty good day.

Boyfriend has some things on his mind work wise trying to send him some good vibes.

Spent a fun evening Thursday with Runic Wolf, Wendigo, and some friends. Enjoyed having someone to cook with in the kitchen, even if I didn't get to enjoy much of the food as my pre-op cleanse meds kicked in whilst cooking dinner. My surgery went well Friday and I spent most of yesterday sleeping. Runic Wolf has been taking really good care of me. I love him so much.

Default Feelings of Guilt

Still enjoying the new trio, but wow, is it hard sometimes! LOL ...

Danny, my "Lion" (tall, blonde hair, Nordic Viking type), and Michael, my "Twin" (my height, dark curly hair, Celtic Warrior type) are needing some time apart, which I understand. That leaves me having to schedule my time with both separately for a while instead of us all being together like we were doing up until now. The result is that I feel guilty no matter who I schedule time with. I know that's my problem, not theirs (in other words, I'm aware that's my own unreasonable desire to make everyone happy), but it's still difficult.

Yeah, I know. I could have worse problems.

I'm pissed off. There's a squirrel in my fucking attic, and some days he sits right above the ceiling over my head and makes squirrely noises.

On the other hand I'm really happy, I have two totally different partners who are confused by totally different aspects of me, but love me anyway, even for the parts that don't make sense to them. Both of them are actually TRYING to give me what they think I want. Unprecedented.

I almost cried today because I was so happy. I hope I remember this if one day it's all heartbreak and misery and forget that at one point, I was happy enough to cry.

I suppose that puts the squirrel in perspective.

I think the squirrel loves you, too.

I'm missing work to be home for the maintenance guy and plumber to get here and fix our hot water heater; which is leaking into the basement. Unfortunately, we're also in the midst of a lake effect snow storm and I haven't heard from anyone what time the plumber will get here.

I've been away for quite awhile. I'll have to read some posts and see how people are doing!
My poly experience is ended now but I am still processing and learning from it. I moved out in April 2012 and my divorce will be final next week.

Sundance is still seeing the "cowgirl" and he continues to lie selectively about his relationship with her. Sometimes that still bugs me, but it's the LYING that bugs me; otherwise it's really none of my business. I'd say we haven't defined ourselves as exes/friends yet, although we're working on it. She and her kids have spent time with Sundance and my sons. I don't know if he'll marry her or what. I do know she still sleeps with a rich man for money, and he goes out with other girls behind her back. They're both kind of creepy I guess!

Butch and I gradually started dating. My kids were extremely accepting of it (except my oldest daughter, who resents the hell out of me for not giving her a "normal" family -- whatever that is -- or a trust fund. But she is nearly 30 years old, and has her own therapy to seek!) One of Butch's kids was extremely, radically pissed off about us dating, and that has tainted things significantly. He blames his dad for breaking up two families. He screamed at him and said he will NEVER accept us together.
Now he hides our relationship from his kids. He's living a double life. It's sneaking around, all over again. It sucks
I honestly thought that once I was free, Butch would fall in love with me. But he hasn't. He's still only interested in "friends with benefits". I am trying to have hope, and be patient with him, and his family.... I just thought it would be different by now. Oh well.

Oh Carma, it's good to hear from you, but I'm sorry some things are still icky. At least your divorce will mean freedom from a toxic relationship. Take things slowly with Butch, you've had a lot to deal with. And don't be afraid to be very cautious and particular about how often Sundance's gf gets to be around your kids. You have every right to limit that. Hang in there!
