yeehaw - thanks Mono - I love it when I get something like this bang on - I have a hard time being able to explain concepts logically - i am very much a person who goes by the 'feel' of things....

every little bit helps

Indeed this is very true... but.. you are mono minded (wired - whatever ) and so are the men I love... if I can explain things in a way that makes sense to you I figure it must make sense to them too - at least more than I usually make

and logic always helps (and is definitely not my strong point)

definitely feeling chipper now

In person I don't tend to be very logical either. Raging female hormones seems to describe me best lately .

When I KNOW I need to be logical I write, lots. Here, email, LiveJournal, chat, pen & paper, whatever it takes to get those emotionally charged ideas into logical format so Breathes can understand them without asking me a million questions, thereby frustrating both of us because I THINK I was logical & he thinks I was clear as mud!

Another thing I've learned is I have to pick the time of day to have an emotionally charged conversation (when I can). We have to both be present in the moment, not tired, fully awake and coherent. Having lots of conversations where I was just way too tired to think any other way than emotionally taught me this *sigh*.

Default Family time with PN's family

It's not very often that we all get together with PN's Mom and step dad. Last night we were all invited over to decorate for XMAS and celebrate RP's birthday. His parents are very loving people ans his step dad is one of the most engaging people I have met (although I can barely keep up with him!). His mom is a beautiful spirit and I find she radiates a love for life that is expressed in her smile. She gave me and PN an excruciatingly pleasant neck/shoulder message because for some reason both RP's men have kinks in their necks....you figure it out

I enjoyed a great evening of food, celebration and discussion. Life's pretty good

Now it is day two of RP's birthday week. She's got her women's group to facilitate and I have some dry cold roads to ride for the afternoon. Then it's tea with her parents and gifts! Woohoo!!

bright spot in my mess right now.

I think I'm beating sociopathy.

Things like videos of my 2 year old niece singing me jingle bells are actually helping the pain. I can actually FEEL the other emotions noe, instead of merely acknowledging that I should feel them, and then drowning in the few things I can actually feel.

This is HUGE for me!!

Did I mention how much I love Mono. He made my room so nice for me and Leo last night. He helped me set up the computer to play an on line movie, he let me put beer in the fridge and let me use his glasses... he made sure to give us space so that we could enjoy our time together... all this from a man that does not share his space with anyone... I felt so loved and grateful. I felt so loved by all three men last night as PN did what was needed to make sure I had time with Leo and Leo was just wonderful to me... he listened to me, laughed with me and we had a really good time together... Feel so loved and complete today.
