Did this person talk about it to you afterwards?

No. His response would likely be "That's weird. Whatever." He's not a coworker I see all the time. He works in a different building. The others all "live" within ten feet of my office, though.

Makes me so sad for you, when things are so good, that you cannot love out loud.
Just had this conversation. It is sooooo important because this "Ain't no Utopia" just how people- everyone in your life- is introduced to the idea/reality of poly.
Feelin for ya TP!

Blech. Mr. A just called. His work day has been extended rather significantly to a 14 hour day. It's very likely that he's not making it in tonight.

Goddamn this long distance thing sucks.

Having just read your entire blog beginning to end...wow, yeah, that sucks!

But you're so resilient and confident, both personally and in your relationships, that I'm sure you'll manage to find time with him one way or another. Just in case, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

And please, when things are going well, pleasepleaseplease KEEP POSTING! The good stuff makes it all seem less impossible! If all I read here was conflict and horribleness, I'd already be skittering back under my monogamy rock.

Monogamy rock ... I have to say I'm a little in love with your sense of humour.

Alright, good things, here we go!

Mr. A came down Sunday morning. The three of us went out to brunch. It was yummy! After brunch, we picked out flowers for Indigo's mum for Mother's Day and then he left to drop them off and do some running around. This gave Mr. A and I some alone time, which was of course, appreciated. We spent the rest of the afternoon lazing around, and actually watched The Human Centipede. Dreadful movie! I highly recommend it for bad movie fans.

Indigo and I had to go to a family function that night for his dad's 60th birthday. There was a lot of family there. It was reasonably successful ... only two family members asked if I was pregnant yet! We told them the due date was 2015. Hah. It didn't last as long as we'd thought it would, so we got home with enough time for all of us to watch random crap on Netflix. Good times, good snuggles.

I had taken today off, so Mr. A and I spent a loverly day together. We woke up to fresh made coffee (thank you, Indigo!) and played video games all morning! In the afternoon, we actually went shopping. This is a big deal for me. I found three shirts and a pair of shorts for myself. Mr. A got three shirts and two pairs of pants for himself. We picked up dinner fixings, and I came home and made dinner for the guys. Mmmmm. BBQ!

Mr. A is gone now, and as much as the goodbyes suck, I didn't cry at the end of this one! I'm getting better.

For anyone wondering about logistics, when Mr. A comes to visit, he and I sleep on the air mattress in the spare room and Indigo takes our bed. Because we need a new bed, the air mattress is actually much comfier! That could also be because there aren't hordes of animals with us, though. Hehehe.

Any who, back to work tomorrow. I'm feeling very content right now.
