Heh. I find more poly and alt lifestyle people at re-enactment groups then anywhere else.

As for how I'm doing? I'm doing okay. Work is trucking along well and has been treating me amazingly well. I'm going to a Dag event in about two weeks and will be gone there for a week. I still have stuff to do, but I'm feeling lazy today.

Getting excited for Rag. Wendigo and I spent the evening working out my corset design and fixing my sword while Runic Wolf was feeling lazy. Though I think we all ended up getting the same amount of work done, just at different times through out the day.

Oh look it's a How Are You Doing thread! I don't have a blog so I don't have some place to write how I'm doing, this seems a good enough place!

My husband had an out of state job interview that he has somewhat of an "in" for...six weeks ago now. Been waiting for one last phone interview with a very busy person. He was told he'd have an answer tomorrow but without that last important (and seemingly required) interview not happening yet, we've decided to keep from having early-onset heart attacks by assuming we're staying here.

Telling my boyfriend weeks ago there was the possibility of us moving away was stressful and sad, and I think changed our dynamic a bit. I think it will change in different ways again when we have 100% surety of what's happening either way.

So I'm doing "more and more stressed" Only talk to my bf about it to give updates, I don't know how he's thinking or feeling. Stress about if there is a new job, hours spent researching short sales, rentals, moving and having discussions about some hypothetical future. Too much time thinking about LDR's and if my bf and I should sensibly break up if we move., I always swore I'd never be in one but what a stupid thing to say, apparently when you love somebody you make impractical decisions sometimes ! Then again I expected to live here for the next 20 years, this area is my <3.

Yep that's how I'm doing, stressed and worried, hopeful for my husband to get what he wants (it'd be a really beneficial job change and promotion), reluctant to deal with unforeseen and unwanted change - relieved if we stay and a wee bit excited if we go. It's warm there, and it's so so rainy here.

Phew, I feel better for getting that out, right now the people I'd talk about that with who aren't a romantic partner are out of the country, avoiding me (le sister) or having a DADT with me about my poly relationships.

I've gone to the local dungeon but going to my first BDSM private play party soon. Kinda nervous.

Not about the environment - I know the folks hosting and trust their ability to create a safe, sane party - but not sure I will react to things.

I hope you like it, opal. I've been to one private party, very fun, lots of laughs and spontaneity and participation. And to a "public" (private club) party which was boring and depressing. You never know!

At the public one, most of the people (middle aged, fat, unattractive) stood or sat around and talked about vanilla topics while about 3 or 4 attractive, younger, porn star looking couples played. It just felt like they were putting on a show for the others. Blech! None of them looked really into what they were doing...

Now, I am older, not thin, but I was not about to get semi naked and get publically beaten or sexed in that environment! The Gentleman and I played in a semi private room, but I wasn't into it. At all. We went home early and I felt bad he wasted $20 times 2 for the cover charge.

Job interview on Monday. It's a commission-only inside sales job, but it's the only bite I've had in months. I can make my own hours and work as much or as little as I want. I'll still look for other positions, too. It seems everything is part-time. NYC is in such bad shape. There are so many people walking around during the daytime, and definitely less people hurrying to the subway stations during the morning rush hour. Everyone I see at S'bux or the library, to hook up their laptops to the free wi-fi, are surfing career sites and filling out job applications. I was talking to the guy behind the counter at 7-11 last night - he used to be a commodities trader. Now he works six nights a week for 10-hr shifts, doing the overnight, for minimum wage.

I really want this sales job. Fingers crossed!

Doing pretty good. Spent yesterday afternoon with Wendigo; finished one of my new corsets; helped him start construction on a shield before picking Runic Wolf up from work. They hung out and played video games while I sewed in the workshop until my days projects were done. Tonight Runic Wolf and I are relaxing; just had a pizza.

Life is amazing minus the drama. The guys tell me I should SHUT THE F*** UP before I jinx it.

I'm busting ass in school (straight A's three semesters running now) and loving my family life without the drama and histrionics.

Yes, wishing you luck!

I'm doing decently, found out yesterday we won't be randomly moving a couple of states away so I can relax. Feeling bad for my husband since everybody at work has been asking him for weeks about his job interview. Mildly sad because apparently sunny weather is coming late to the PNW.
