Now that my daughters' issues have subsided to a dull roar, and the snow has finally melted, my gf and I finally seem to have some time to relax and really enjoy life again. We were together for 2 1/2 days of naked cuddling, lots of fun talk and laughter, good cookin,' movie watching, several yummy sex sessions, and a trip to the Boston Flower Show on a rare 70 degree March day!

We clung to each other and got teary when I had to leave her yesterday afternoon, so in love are we. I had to get home for work. She was going to her bf's last night. I kinda got the idea she'd rather I stayed...

She spent hours over those days updating her resume and writing a cover letter to apply for job at Expedia. Please, dear Isis, Athena, Hermes and whatever other gods are good at this, let her get this job!

Default Poly all around :)

We had a great "tribal" day today. A friend of ours (form our poly community as are most of our friends) was moving and put an emergency call out for people to load her moving truck. She was severely undermanned for this part of her move and definitely needed help.
Redpepper, PN, LB, and I all changed our plans and headed out as a family to lend a hand. It didn't take long but they had a lot of big furniture which required some extra hands. After wards we enjoyed pizza and beer before resuming our days.

I was on my bike so I headed over to Derby's house to visit my dear metamour and her hubby. We chatted for an hour about many things from work to this forum. Then it was off to ride some more where I ran into RP downtown so we went burlesque costume shopping for an hour. During our shopping RP got confirmation that Leo and his family were in for our annual may camping trip so it is good to see things are all looking good!

I often forget how big our little community here actually is.

I loved that our friend said that she loved that she put the word out and we all came. "Nothing like a whole tribe to the rescue" she said

We had another great day of family togetherness We are getting the yard ready for summer and had our first BBQ of the season! We all got to say hi to my parents over Skype. It's great to have such openess and harmony within our families and tribe. Things are pretty damn good and my love for RP continues to grow

indigo said he's looking forward to me going to visit Mr. A this weekend. He likes that it makes me happy, and he enjoys his Indigo time, too.

I do believe they call that compersion!

Lightbulb sharing success and happiness

Doing great today. Fighting that "scrape me off the ceiling" feeling (I know -- who would fight that, right?! But trying to keep a balance, as best I can).

Saw Bob Seger in concert Saturday night. Front row! Bob Seger shook my hand!

In a great place with my husband -- Sundance. He has been to hell and back the past few weeks, and I am so fucking proud of him!!! He's been doing some tough self-discovery work, and I am seeing the payoffs, big time. He has grown more confident and secure in himself, and I am finding him irresistably sexy, which in turn makes him feel more confident and secure, which in turn leads to....me desperately wanting to give him a blowjob..... which leads me to his morning shower..... which leads to a very nice start to Sundance's day, I believe
Then I went to Butch Cassidy's place and had some great FWB fun, and felt happy to come back home to my wonderful home that I share with my wonderful husband and our beautiful family.
Scrape me off the ceiling, for sure!

Tonight I was invited to Redpepper's parents house for a family supper. It was relaxed, incredible and so natural for all of us to be together. Her brother was there as well as a deep family friend of hers. We felt like family; Redpeppper felt it, I caught her looking around and looking so full. Her parents do not know about us yet and that is absolutely fine by me I think we could wait a lot longer in my opinion for things to settle out..not to mention it's gonna get awkward!! They accept me as a friend and that is enough for me LOL!!

All of us would have been friends regardless of my involvement in their family I think. We are all doing great in the moment
Absolutely wonderful! I think you are transitioning into everything family in the right way! Lucky boy!
