If you need cheering up

Saw this post on r/polyamory and had to share because it's so cute. (Not my current poly life, alas!) But it's so sweet.

Just want to say that I've been in a poly relationship for 9 years and it's been very healthy, normal, and boring.​

I think part of the reason polyamory has such a bad rep is that you don't often hear from poly people in healthy, stable relationships. I mean, what do you want me to say? I don't have a lot of breaking news to report. Lately my partner and I had a slight mix-up about whether they were going to see their gf on the 8th or the 9th, but it was resolved pretty quickly... I saw one of my ex metas at the mall the other day and we talked about shoe inserts... We're thinking about getting a cat... IDK
I'm lucky enough to be able to say, that my poly relationship is healthy, normal, and boring. Things were hard during our first few years together, but that's all been smoothed out since then.
My 2 relationships are healthy, normal and not boring at all!
Life here is the normal stuff - laundry, groceries, cooking, cleaning. It's normal family life but with an extra "wife" helping out.
My life with my partners is very normal, healthy and a mix of boring and amazing fun & excitement!
