All About Bridget!

Hi there everyone! As Mija mentioned already I did indeed write this intro recently in anticipation of being added to this site. I’m pretty excited to be here, so I hope I have something of value to add! Anyway, all the relevant details are bellow. I will wait nervously for your feedback!

I’m a young woman in my early twenties. I live in the middle of the USA
with my family. My family consists of three children and three adults.
No, we don’t have grandma living with us. We have what is called a polyamorous
relationship. Both myself and the other woman are involved with the
same man. Are you scandalized? My parents are. This is an ongoing
source of drama in my life. I’m sure you will hear about it again.

Most relevant to PB readers- what we have together is a Master/slave dynamic. In this instance He is the
Master, and we are the slaves. In the most simple terms this means that
He gets to control whatever he wants and we get to, well, obey.  When
we fail at the obedience thing is when discipline comes into play. Yes,
it’s usually painful.

There are some external things that go with being a slave. We
address Him as "Sir." We sleep on the floor.  We (read I) take care of
most of the housework.  We usually don’t get to watch what we want on
TV.  Most of these things are actually more subtle than you might
expect, though, and except for there being three of us we don’t look
that different from any of those sappy 1950s TV shows.

For me, the real meat behind M/s is the mental side of things.  It has to do
with being led and controlled.  It has to do with structure and being
pushed to do my best both for myself and for the one who owns me. It is also about knowing that I need to live this way in order to
achieve my highest potential. It is kinky to be sure, but it’s also an
acknowledgment of my personality and how I thrive.

I am the stay at home member of the family. I care for the
kiddos and make sure the house is in shape. I plan the meals and make
the grocery lists. I wash the clothes and diapers. I’m a regular Suzie
Homemaker. Except, well, I’m not.

I try my hardest but I’m not a natural.  This is very sad for
me because all my life it’s been my dream to be a stay at home mom. Now
that I am living it I’m discovering that I don’t have a natural ability
to see dirt in obscure corners of the living room. I also don’t always
remember when the sheets were washed last, or notice how much toilet
paper is left in the main bathroom.  I forget to iron His shirts and he
runs out. The plants sometimes go un-watered. Can you guess what types
of things I am likely to be punished for? Still, the family gets fed
and I almost always manage to get the kitchen floor mopped.

I think this is a pretty general introduction to me. I am not 100% convinced that I’m a good fit for the PB
because the life I lead is in some ways drastically different than many
of the other contributors. However, they have all assured me that I do
belong here and they seem to think I have an interesting perspective to
add. I guess you readers will be the judge of that. For now,  I’ll just
say , "Hi" and, "Thanks for having me here."

    Hi, Bridget!!
    Nice introduction! There’s a lot I could comment on, but the part that struck me just now is this: worrying you might not fit in, because your life is different from the rest of ours.
    Well… I tend to look at this as a group where the thing we have in common is that we’re women (which isn’t a requirement, it’s just how things are right now) who are in (or have been in) a relationship where there is, has been, or might be in the future, some variation of “this thing we do.” Oh, yeah, and we’re all intelligent and able to express ourselves via the written word (something that I’ve discovered is surprisingly rare in this world).
    Aside from that, we’re each pretty different from each other, and I think that’s perhaps what draws our readers.
    I’ve written and erased paragraphs for a while here, so I think I’ll just leave it at that for now.
    Welcome, and know that I, at least, think you’re a good fit!

    Dyke Grrl,
    Thanks for the warm welcome! I’m glad to know you think I’m a good fit. I think I probably am as well, I just can’t quite visualize how that’s going to look yet. I think that this is one of those things that will become clear as I do it! I know I like ya’ll and have a lot of respect for everyone, and that is a great place to start.
    I’m glad to know that so far you agree that one thing I share in common with you all is my ability to express myself in writing. I’ve never been overly confident in that myself but that is starting to change a bit recently!

    Bridget, Bridget, Bridget… How many times do I have to say it? You’re a perfect fit for us, and FURHTERMORE IT’S ABOUT FREAKING TIME YOU STARTED A BLOG.

  4. Bridget

    Well, gee, sparkle. I’m glad you are supportive of my blogging efforts! I think I will fit in here, but you’ve got to cut the new girl a little bit of slack for having angst!

  5. Mija

    Dream on Bridget. Haven’t you been reading? This blog is so not about us being cut slack. 😉
    (Though we do tend to feel for each other.)

    Welcome Bridget, I think you’ll be a great fit here!!! I’ve been reading PB since the beginning and knew some of the contributors since back in SSS.
    One great thing about ‘this thing we do’ is that we all do it slightly different. I live a D/s lifestyle, and the M/s has always interested me… I look forward to learning more 🙂

    Bridget, what you have IS very different than what I (and maybe other people) have seen before, but THAT is what makes you and your writing so interesting. I already know what my life is like, why would I want to read about people who are exactly like me? I hope that makes sense, I’m trying to give you a compliment!
    As for being a “natural” housekeeper, I don’t think anyone is. But I found a webpage a few years ago that has helped me in a HUGE way. It’s flylady DOT net. (I don’t want my comment deleted!) It has absolutely nothing to do with discipline, by the way. It teaches people like us who have a hard time doing floors and remembering to water plants how to keep the house running smoothly.
    Good luck and I look forward to reading more!

    Um, well…let’s see…hell, I’ll just agree with everything everybody has said as I can’t think of anything else to add. ::grin::
    Big hugs, me dear. And welcome!

    I am ridiculously far behind in my post responses, but I wanted to throw my belated welcome into the pot. Bridget, my dear, you are a wonderful addition to PB. Your voice and experiences will add much to the scope of conversation and I look forward to much interesting discussion sparked by the dynamic for which you are wired.
    Big hugs,
