It's been an amazing weekend. We've spent the weekend at a local BDSM workshop event and it was exactly what I needed. We learned some really cool stuff, met really nice people, and learned about a local rope event we're going to try to go to some time. Mostly it felt really good to be in a setting where I could just be my authentic self and was surround by people doing the same.

Archer finally finished his Novice title in Barn Hunt. It was a new venue and his first time hunting where there was air conditioning. His registered name is a Danger Zone (hence my shirt), and when we got into the car to head to the trial it was playing when we turned on the radio, I knew it would be a good omen.

I'm happy to finally have time to be back here! It's been crazy IRL lately and still is, but at least I have more time now.

To summarise, my guinea piggy almost died and I spent a month sleeping on the floor at my mum's trying to look after her. My older dog nearly died (is still critical) but at least me and the piggy are finally back home. My laptop is out for repairs but I've got my mum's one here so I'm looking positive!

Glad you get to be back home. I've done lots of floor sleeping with sick animal familiars. Got us wrapped around their little paw-fingers! I hope she keeps getting better <3

I got a new job! Lower pay, but more structure and probably less top-down bullying. I'll take it! With any luck my cold should clear up soon, too.

Glad to see you back. Fingers crossed that all your animals start feeling better.

A buddy of mine and his lady just bought a new house, and my wife and I were invited to the housewarming today. It was a potluck, and there are some formidable cooks in that family! We got to visit with his mother (one of our favorite people) and meet his father, along with a slew of aunts, uncles, and cousins from both sides of the family. Good food, good friends, good times: it doesn't get much better than that,

Of the nineteen Oklahoma state legislators who voted against raising teacher salaries (a thing which was last done here 30 years ago), only four will be returning to the state house next year. Many were wiped out in the primaries; others tested the political winds and didn't even run.

Sunday nights are al-anon meetings and my anxiety has been going crazy every single week for the past three months. But not tonight! I mean, I still felt it a fair bit, but I was functional. It was incredible. I could articulate my thoughts, I made eye contact, I even small-talked with reeelative ease. And the absolute best of all, no self-loathing afterwards :eek:

Is this what being a normal social animal feels like? I hope this is partially due to the new meds I've been taking and I hope with every fibre of my being that I'm gradually able to have more experiences like this one.

My handsome, amazing, chubby husband admitted to me today that some of the things I have always known about him in our five years together (that he hates anything sweet or fried), were mostly just attempts to keep his weight down while we were dating. He figured if he told me off the bat that he hated those things, I’d never try to get him to eat them. Which is true.

He mentioned that he’s been gaining ever since our wedding almost a year ago, and asked if I really meant it when I told him I loved his body and wouldn’t mind if he were bigger. He said if that were really true, he might ease up on himself a bit and enjoy some of the foods he never let himself have when we were first together. (I have never been shy about preferring big guys, and have complimented his body every day for five years, so glad the message is *finally* starting to stick!)

Anyway, long story short, I baked him the first dessert of our relationship today and watching how much he loved eating it was sweet and kind of sad and a total turn on all at once.​

Aww, Starling, that's so sweet but yeah, so sad that he went so long pretending he didn't like such things. Bless him. I'm glad he's finally relaxing about it.

The great white north, eh?
First: what Loopy said

Second: omg, my curiousity/anticipation/excitement would be off the charts in your shoes. I hope you have a calmer mind than I, and aren't too distracted by this turn of events.
