So, Aamrie is home, with us, for now. She is traveling for her vacation, and her first stop is here, for our small Super Bowl party.

A very warm welcome greeted her at the door.  Kisses all around. Feels like she never left.  Everyone is happy.

Grandson is here, because son’s wife had to run to the ER.  Both women have been all over the grandma duty.  Aamrie isn’t much for football, but she’s cheering the game on.

Time together is precious, and we are truly enjoying it.

So, we are eagerly awaiting a visit from Aamrie. Then we get some awesome news.  She’s going to be passing through town, on her way to visit a dear friend, and will drop in for an overnight stay, on her way.

We get to see her a week early, and even though it’s only an overnight stop, we are overjoyed.

Don’t let anyone fool you. Long-distance relationships truly suck at times. The separation, the limited time together, combine to make the time apart nearly unbearable but makes the time together all the more precious.

All the little things that most relationships take for granted. Cuddling, a stolen kiss, just sitting, talking, while the rest of he world rushes by.

We can’t wait until she gets to visit.


“Polyamory is differentiable from some other forms of nonmonogamy (including adultery) in that it is future-oriented. Poly relationships are not located solely in the moment, but have intentions (though perhaps tacit and vaguely defined) of at least adding to a base of experience possibly so far as signifying a life-long and emotionally attached commitment.” ― Anthony D.
