I have another issue and I didn’t even post about the last issue I had. It’s like my life has become a never-ending procession of things to feel bad about.
This week I’ve been stupidly weepy. I’ve been chalking it up to PMS and poor reading choices – particularly “Confessions of the Other Mother: Nonbiological Lesbian Moms Tell All!” and “My Miserable, Lonely, Lesbian Pregnancy.” Neither of them left me feeling particularly enthusiastic about motherhood, a subject I already feel poorly about.

I’d like to take the opportunity to move us closer to my girlfriend. Of course, this has brought up many interesting discussions on potential living situations. How close should we live to my girlfriend? A nearer neighborhood? The same neighborhood? A flat next door? The same flat? What option should we choose now?

Having an open marriage was relatively easy. There were some fights and little jealousies and the like, but it was rather simple. There was a lot of sex and a little friendship and things just went on like normal (mostly).
