My mom died.

I found out this week that my mom died back in March. It was drugs. She was 47 and I can't believe she's gone. I thought she was doing better and was keeping clean but I guess that was just something she was saying to me.

June 12, 2016

Just a quick post before I got to get going!

Our helper Amy moved in on Wednesday and OMG has she made a difference! So wonderful to have an extra pair of hands in the house! And she is probably staying on as wife #4 and that will be wonderful!

Both Steve and Christie are gone on work but we get Christie back in a couple weeks and that will be nice. Steve is busy for the summer and that is a very good thing because the oil business just stopped and really hasn't come back yet.

No baby news for now mostly because Steve hasn't been here. The family is doing fine. My little Patty got her first pair of glasses and she's having fun seeing things for the first time that she couldn't see before. It's been fun to be with her and discover the world all over again!

Not much poly news. Have to say I am disappointed that poly isn't legal yet but I guess I have to be patient.

I have two nice friends I am pen pals with and they make me think of things that I don't think I've ever shared here:

1. Kitchen Bouquet is an amazing thing to have for making tasty beef/bison/pork gravies!!!

2. Being a nanny is a great way to learn about having a family of your own!

3. And a lot of people are talking about politics and it's sad that the three people running are the best we can do. So our choices are the guy with the weird hair, the crazy old man who wants to try communism, and the lady who has AWFUL taste in clothes and then spends CRAZY money so she can look like a Romulan from Star Trek!!!



We all need to pray for our country!

Have a wonderful and blessed day everyone!

Questions from Richard

Hi there!

I checked the blog and found some questions and will answer them in a moment. Steve is away on work and so is Christie so Cydne and me are having some time together and it's been kind of nice. Hope you're all doing well!

Okay so here are the questions and my answers.

1. Was your first time with Steve nonconsensual or semi-consensual? I get the idea you're not 100% into it.

It's complicated. I wanted to do it, I said I would, and I was scared. Pretty normal from what everyone tells me so I don't think it was anything but just a normal time with my husband.

2. What do you think of childbirth and pregnancy after doing it as much as you have?

The whole thing never stops being a miracle to me!!! It's always crazy when I find out I'm pregnant and then it's amazing when I get to meet this new person in my life for the first time!

3. Do you ever get jealous when Steve is with another wife?

Sometimes. I'd be lying if I said anything else.

4. Will there be a new fourth wife?
Pretty safe to say yes.

5. Is Steve working or is he off work like most oil field workers these days?

He is working but it was nice having him home so I'm looking forward to winter again when he'll be here a lot.

6. If you had not chosen poly what do you think you would be doing with your life at age 26?

Drugs like my parents maybe? A loser job? College was never going to happen so maybe the best would be a job somewhere and maybe meet someone.

7. What do you think about when you're having sex? Is it all passion or what?

Just had the same kind of thought in a letter I wrote to a friend. Sometimes I enjoy it and I get into it and other times it is something I do because it is something I am supposed to do. Sometimes there's passion and other times it's like brushing your teeth. I mean I love being close with Steve but sometimes it's just something I do for him and not really much for me.

Hope that answers that for you.

April 10, 2016

Good afternoon everyone!

I had a couple requests for an update so here it is.

We'll start with saying that I am purposefully not saying too much with the children because we're worried about their privacy both now and years from now. With everything on the internet lasting forever we are afraid that the children might have problems as adults if their history comes up. It's just the way things are.

Steve is at home all the time now. The work he had building new locations in the oilfields is over at least until oil prices go up again and we all know they will. But for now he is at home every day and that's been really nice. He's out on the ranch getting a lot of things done like a couple new wells and grading and paving a new road to the back of our property. He paved the two mile road from the main road to the house and it's really nice. It's tons smoother than the local roads around here and it's fun to drive on! The kids love having him home all the time and I think they're all used to the idea that he's not going to have to leave for work anytime soon.

Christie is buried in her work and when she is done she and I are going to drive to Arizona for her to do a little business in Prescott but then we're going to see Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and Las Vegas before we come home! I've never seen those places before and it should be fun! Cydne is staying home with all the children and the babies and we have a helper coming in to help out for the nine whole days we're gone! I LOVE my children but the thought of just getting to be me and not "MOMMY!!!" for nine days seems amazing! I will post some pictures when we get back!

Cydne is doing fine and has been having fun starting her own garden this year. I am still doing my quilting work and cooking every day. Christie is mostly busy with work but is trying to read when she can. Steve works all the time but he's also been practicing his shooting more just because he says he is out of practice.

With Steve home I expect all three of us women will have baby news before too long. Christie especially wants another baby this year and both Cydne and I just know it won't be long before we start making plans for new babies in 2017.

That's really about everything that is going on for right now. Just one more thing...

I had a message from a documentary producer and while we will not be doing this I did want to share his very nice letter in case anyone wanted to talk to him about helping him:

My name is Nico, I'm a television producer for PSG Films in Seattle, Washington. We create documentary series for Discovery, National Geographic, TruTV, and others. 
I stumbled upon your blog while researching polygamous families for a new TLC series! I'm sure you have been approached before regarding your own family or any others that you know that might be interested in participating in a documentary program, if so, let me know! Otherwise, it would be great to connect with you and speak on the phone. Contact me any time!

Wishing you the best,

Questions from Jay D. and answers from Megan!

I got this in email just now and wanted to answer it before I went outside! My answers are in blue!

Hi Megan,

I am considering entering into the poly lifestyle.  I am getting somewhat serious with a woman who will become my first wife.  We are both very excited and sincerely want to pursue this as a lifestyle. 

I have a few practical questions. 

How many wives and children are in your family currently?  Am I correct in that it is currently You, Christie, and Cydne? 

Yes, it's Christie, Cydne, and myself. Christie currently has four children, Cydne has two, and I have six.

 What kind of vehicle(s) does Steve own to cart you all around in?  does he have a big 15 passenger van or something? 

Funny you ask because the one vehicle we don't have is a big van! We almost never go out all of us at the same time so this has never really been a big problem. And we have trucks and SUV's that can all get around in the snow.
Are any females currently pregnant in your family?  or actively trying to get that way?

No one is pregnant right now but both Christie and Cydne are working on it and I imagine one of them will be expecting some time soon!

How large is the home you live in?  How many bedrooms, baths, living spaces, etc.  What are the sleeping arrangements for the adults and the children usually?  How large is the farm you live on?  What kind of crops & animals do you raise?  Does the farm turn a profit?  Or is it just kind of a hobby? 

We have a ranch that has a few buildings and a guest house. Right now no one is living in the guest house so we have enough room in the main house for everyone. The kids share rooms and sometimes so do the adults! (-:

We have a ranch and about two acres of it is for a farm. It's mostly for us but we give away the excess to people at church. We have been running bison for a few years now and they're tons easier to take care of than cattle and you don't have to worry about them with the cold and predators as much. The ranch turns a profit or we wouldn't be doing it!

Have you and Steve and the sisters discussed how many kids would be too many?  Is there ever a point where Steve might stop wanting to have more babies just because the house is full, or for financial reasons?

Nope.

Do all you sister wives, and Steve all own a legal share in the house and property?  How is this handled legally and with the family finances?  Was there some kind of prenuptial agreement that had arrangements for if the unthinkable happened (Like Macy & Shari leaving).

Everyone of the adults has an equal share in everything and like when Macy left she got 20% which was almost all of our cash. The same thing happened when Shari left but there were other things she took when she left.
Do any of your sisters work or do anything to make money?  Or is this 100% Steve’s department?

Christie does tax stuff on the side and I cook and cater sometimes if there is work but Steve handles all the important things like the house, bills, and etc.

Thanks, and I still love reading your blog. 


Sincerely,

Jay D.

You're welcome! (-:

    Answers from my friends!

    Hello!

    Recently I asked a few questions of my readers and here are the answers that came via email:

    Joe R. wrote:

    Welcome to 2016 and Happy New Year! 


    So something a little different here for my very first post of the new year!

    I have some questions for YOU! Feel free to answer anonymously if you want or you can answer in email and I'll publish them anonymously if you want! 

    1. Why do you read this blog? What do you get from it and what are you looking for from it?

    Hi Megan, I read your blog for inspiration!  I get a glimpse into a life that I want for myself.  I think your poly family is so beautiful and amazing.  I read your blog so I can get insight as to what I might do to create a poly family of my own, with happy sister wives living with me.  I very much want to marry and have babies.   :) :) :) 

    2. Poly: Are you for or against or…?   

    I am absolutely for it, and I want this lifestyle for myself.

    3. Are you poly curious? If so, care to tell me what you might be looking for in a poly situation? 

    I am more than poly curious.  I am looking for a beautiful young woman to become my wife who wants to live like this with me, and walk in this path together before God.

    4. Do you have any children? If no do you want any? 

    Yes, I have one son from a previous relationship.  I LOVE being a father more than anything in the world, and yes I absolutely want more babies.  I want my son to have lots of brothers and sisters to grow up with!

    5. How's your relationship doing? 

    I am currently seeking a wife.  

    6. Are you working or are you a student or…?

    Both, actually.  I flew Helicopters in the Army and several many years on active duty.  I am still a reservist and very proud to serve my country.  I am now back in flight training for airplanes, as I transition to a career as a civilian airline pilot.

    7. (Totally optional) How old are you? 
    42
    Megan, please keep me in your prayers.  I am still hoping to meet the beautiful and amazing woman of my dreams.  I am wanting a younger wife, who is wanting to be pregnant!  And also into the idea of building a poly family like yours.  I want a Christian girl who believes in poly.  I live in WA state, so I am open to a woman as young as 16, which is the legal age here.  If you know of any of your friends who wants a quality and loving family man, please let me know.  

    Yours truly,

    Joe

    Happy New Year :)

    So... my turn to answer yours!

    1. Why do you read this blog? What do you get from it and what are you looking for from it?

    I read your blog because it's an honest, true account of poly life - the ups and downs and the picture of what a real family is like. I find it inspiring, entertaining and it feels like my support system in a sense for the lifestyle I believe in and want, that I'm not alone in what I want or think about.

    2. Poly: Are you for or against or...?

    I am "for." I dont believe its for everyone, or even most, but I think when done wisely and with communication and of course consent, it can be a very positive thing.

    3. Are you poly curious? If so, care to tell me what you might be looking for in a poly situation? 

    Absolutely. I am looking for a first to start living in a responsible, happy poly home with and pursue building a family together. Someone honest, kind and family oriented, who shares my beliefs.

    4. Do you have any children? If no do you want any? 

    No, but do want. 

    5. How's your relationship doing? 

    See #3.

    6. Are you working or are you a student or...?

    Full time employed small business owner. Saving to provide for my family.

    7. (Totally optional) How old are you? 

    30something :)

    Best,

    Dan
