Cohabitating Frogs

OK, some of you may have noticed that I changed the wording on my header & description (or mebbe you didn't).  Well, the times they are a changin'.  I think it is probably good to indicate that I'm no longer writing about dating & all of those lovely frogs I kissed--the blog's focus has definitely shifted (sailing certainly is still in there).  I think it is fair to say that I'm writing more about the trials & tribulations of an LTR & how to successfully blend families after divorce.  Yup, that's it!  And, it ain't easy...but for the most part we seem to have navigated part one fairly well--from introductions to doing activities together to spending a week at the beach.  Yeah, there are bumps in the road, but if this were part one of the story, we've closed that chapter & now onto the next.  Which brings me to the "MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT"

Chapter Two?
If it weren't hard enough to bring our families together, Xing Fu & I are now going to push the envelope some more.  We are really planning to blend the families--no, not what you're thinking--no wedding bells.  But we are going to live together.  That's the plan & oh boy, as happy & excited as I am to move our relationship to the next level, I am rife with anxiety as well.  I realized today that I haven't lived with anyone besides my kid since I kicked my ex out in 2004.  Big changes coming for us all.  We've always said that we test the reaches of our relationship--those early relationship tests--like getting stranded in a snowstorm together all of two weeks into our dating one another.  I think we're up for the challenge.  Stay tuned!

He totally will share the remote. He may not even notice it's there. And as the last unmarried woman who roomed with him, I highly recommend him.
