Lt. Dad's Fireside Chat Series: Good vs. Right Partners

Welcome back everyone. Take a seat next to the cozy fireplace. Grab a glass of wine, some popcorn, and a marshmallow to toast. Today we're going to cover good versus right partners.

When we think about the "perfect" partner, we tend to be very vague in our descriptions. We want them attractive, smart, driven, employed, good in bed, etc. We scour the earth looking for our lobster to join claws with, and when we find one - OH, it's MAGICAL!

Before I go into that story, a quick recap of my weekend.

And I can't pregame because I'm likely going to be driving so DH can watch and take pictures (my choice).

Strokes and C'Tucky

This is step-related, but more of me as a SD than a SM. This post may get deleted if I think I share too much.

My SF did have a stroke. He's still in the hospital, but doing well. He has some milestones he has to meet before he gets released, but it'll take a few days. He should be able to rehab at home. All good news.

Bad news: This has brought C**tucky, my SSis, out of the woodwork. Read my previous blogs about her to understand the nickname. You'll find one from around Thanksgiving 2018 to be particularly relevant because, drumroll please...
