    Vicki's Journey Continues...

    It gets too exhausting to write sometimes. I just don't have the spoons. All the covid stress is so exhausting. I try to write in my private journal daily, but it doesn't always happen, and my memory has gotten bad enough that if I don't write it down, it didn't happen. It's actually pretty...

    Change in all the areas of my life...

    I don't usually have sex when Kiddo is awake, but I won't say it hasn't happened :P I just lock the door and turn on music. We don't do any kind of BDSM when he's awake though. I don't want to worry about those kind of sounds. But he never leaves his room once he is in bed either so I haven't...

    I think it's pandemic stuff, icesong... Kiddo is having similar issues :(

    The journey to myself

    I dunno, about the BDSM stuff... some people think of it like sex, and some people just aren't comfortable talking about their own sex lives, let alone someone else's. I don't think it has anything to do with calling it disgusting but rather more just of individual comfort levels. Would it help...

    Fun and Frolic With Long-Term Love

    I have to ask- don't you worry about interacting with all these people, masks or not? The idea of having nonhousehold members in my home, or being indoors anywhere not my home right now... makes my skin crawl.

    Fun and Frolic With Long-Term Love

    It sure does sound like an awful lot for those of us who don;t go anywhere at all. Holy smokes. I can't even imagine going inside a mall right now or eating in at a restaurant, masks or no masks. But maybe cases are lower where you are.

    Vicki's Journey Continues...

    Sometimes poly is blissful, though. I tried to ignore the fact that the world is sliding back down into chaos and just to stay present in the moment today. Charles planned a date for us, a picnic in the park. Wide open spaces so we could stay away from everyone else. He made homemade vegetable...

    Change in all the areas of my life...

    I so often get a sense of deja vu when I read your blog, because it feels like we have a lot of experiences that are close enough. I definitely have very different sexual relationships with both Henry and Charles, and your really well expressed post got me thinking that I wanted to talk to Henry...

    It's not a big 3BR house. The master bedroom is mine. Henry has pretty much set up the basement to be his space in addition to storage/laundry etc. The two other bedrooms are small. Kiddo has one and Charles has the other. Right now, all we can do is the best that we can. Henry and I can't...

    Vicki's Journey Continues...

    I just haven't had the emotional energy to devote to a long update. It's been a really hard year. The pandemic has been fucking with all of us. The consensus is still that Henry would become seriously ill if he caught it, per his doctor, and I have some additional risk factors myself. So as a...

    Ugh- this new setup is so hard to read! I've been tired and just not feeling like updating but I'll try to get to it.

    COVID Breaking Me

    Yes, he's going to come to stay for an undefined period of time. We'll see how it works out. If it doesn't, he can always go back home. Galagirl, we'd be prepared to take the risk once, not multiple times. There is no way for him to be low risk enough to come back and forth, unfortunately. That...

    COVID Breaking Me

    icesong, there is no reasonable way to request that his housemates wear N95 masks all the time. The reusable ones we have are very expensive and you have to change out the filter every two weeks. Also, I mean, they get to decide their own levels of social interaction. I'm aware that we are...

    COVID Breaking Me

    I’m parsing what you wrote, GalaGirl. The only place I definitely disagree is about it not being the right move for us because low risk. With the N95 mask on, it’s about as safe as it can be right now. Henry and I agree that if he takes reasonable precautions (showering when he gets home...
