Update on the latest PROJECT!

Beloved and I have been looking for a weekend place to supplement the tiny, 500 sq. ft."hut in the sky" where we currently live. To give you an update, we were perfectly happy, well not perfectly...but we lived-not together in two seperate states until for about 12 years, 6 years ago when we got married for the first time (another long story.) We had been looking for a place in NJ and in NY, but had been been unsuccessful (another long story which will go untold unless you come to NYC and have-at least coffee with me.)

On the virtual eve of our first wedding, I opened my big mouth and said, "well, why don't you move in here until we find a place." As I saw those words floating out of my mouth I wanted to grab them back and stuff them where they came from, that romantic part of my brain, just about to get married, for the first time, but not the last, although to the same person. Since that time, things have been, well...crowded.

About a year ago, I was talking to my therapist about how this introvert was feeling so dissatisfied and spending a lot of time in the bedroom with the door closed-read L of the L shaped studio made into a bedroom. How there was no relief from sound of smells-BL loves to cook smelly food, loves to talk on the phone, loves to do lots of big things that match her big extroverted personality that I love.

So into couples counseling we went and hence starting searching for a supplemental/ beach/weekend, yet commutable place. We would keep our hut as our main residence.

I think we may have found one.
