well this potential job/scam is being pretty persistent.  Hard to tell which.

 

Willow

Job scams are becoming prevalent. I had someone hack my job posting account on indeed and pose as my company to get people to apply and then they said they needed to do background checks so they phished for personal data, then offered them the job and got them to fill out direct deposit info to get banking data. All while racking up charges for the advertising on my account!  They are a really sophisticated nowadays in trying to commit identity theft.  You can always independently look up the company and reach out to their publicly listed phone to see if they put out the ad. Even then be carefully because they even build out quick websites to make it look like they are real and post phony numbers.  Is the company local? If so drop by.  If it all looks like a scam, report to the FBI since it's federal wire fraud since they advertised via FB.

I guess I don't believe anything I read on almost all of the social networks. They're all too easy to scam and all under regulated.

Minor bit of family news: My grandmother is 95 today! 🎂

 

These Polish women are human energizer bunnies, they just don't go down! Hoping I got some of those good genes!

 

That's awesome @Heather Nicole.  My mother is of the same descent and she's going strong in her late 80's.

I think that I did not drink enough water yesterday and woke with a migraine headache. It woke me up early. Hoping to to hydrate and go back to bed in a while. Good Morning Everyone!

As my wife woke up at our usual hour of 5:30am I pulled the covers back over my head thinking- I'm not working today, I'm sleeping in for a change.  The warmth of the bed was calling me back.  Unfortunately, I thought about all the stuff I wanted to get done in my personal life and my head started spinning so up I got and headed down for some Sumatran Peaberry deliciousness.  

On the agenda today: finish sewing a dress I'm making (or at least get it mostly done), distilling some rum, heading off to the apple store for computer repair and- watch some football.  I'm not sure I can get all that done.  I need a week off work to get caught up in life. lol.

@Chloe CozeeI hope you wake up migraine free. I get HA from dehydration periodically but not migraines. I can't imagine those ;(. 

Happy Sunday ladies

@Chloe Cozee Hope you were able to get back to sleep.

 

 

Interesting afternoon yesterday. I am taking a delivery to a commercial customer. My phone goes off. It is my youngest. So I break policy and answer. 'We are stuck on the summit*' 

Turns out they were stuck stuck. we had a band of snow blow through and made the roads real interesting. It was nice and icy and put the car in the ditch. I tell them OK I'll head up when I get off. (that delivery was my last thing to do)

 

So drop my parts off and head back to the store. I am counting out and get another call. don't bother the road is closed and will take you forever to get here. So I go home.

I text an hour later, still stuck. roadside insurance has them in a totally wrong. They call another tow company. they have no small wreckers available at the moment. 

 

they have law enforcement call for one. after almost 4 hours and $225 less they get home. When I could have save the money and time and did it. I however keep my mouth shut. don't want to start and argument.

* the summit is the highest point on Interstate 80 at 8100ft above sea level. It has a nice 5% down grade in about 6-7 miles. It is fun when dry. I've came down it any where from 10mph all the way over triple digits

I need to make more coffee.

My dogs keep waking me up somewhere between 3-4am the lat few days. I let them out and back in 20 minutes later but by then I just can't sleep anymore. I have a lot weighing on my mind lately.  My wife hasn't had a cigarette in 4 days so she's been really well, a bitch to put it nicely. I had to run out to the store last night for a few things. (It was too cold for the mini-skirt so I wore the longer one.) On my way back She calls me screaming about how long I was gone. There were reasons it took so long but my point is I realized I don't want to be home. I just bought a new house and I don't want to be here, with her. She has made comments that I make a better looking woman than her but I put in some time with my outfits, check my makeup before I leave the house. I care about what I look like. Her not so much and I'm expected to be less fem than her if/when we're out together. I'm sorry, not sorry I won't ever be the man-of-the-house. It doesn't mean I won't do the things. I'll just get them done the right way, the girl brain way.

 

And there's anyways the sub-argument about what I eat. My wife's always been a meat-at-every-meal kind of person. I can't do it. I've been working toward going full vegetarian but being lactose intolerant I might as well go vegan.  When I look over at my furry-kids I just can't imagine how anyone could consider them food. Less intelligent life form? I work with people that can be out-smarted by a goldfish.

Thank you Bri, I drank a couple cups of water and took some ibuprofen. Went back to bed. Feel much better now.

@KymmieL , thank you! I am feeling better now. 

 

I see you live in Wyoming. My daughter works in the National Park. I visit her every summer. Very beautiful out there!

Good morning 

 

not all migraines are that severe.  A lot of it has to do with the location within the brain. I get what my doctor diagnosed as migraines .  Unfortunately they run in my family.  I’ve had them so bad I’ve had to go to the doctor to get a toradol  shot after three days.  I also get visual migraines.  Those I just have to wait out.  Do remember if you are on any form of medication that is a diuretic (spironolactone) you will me more susceptible to getting a migraine and you drink caffeine coffee or cola it’s worse. You have to flush with water.

 

@ElizabethStar it is so sad that right after buying a new home you’ve had so many difficulties.  I do think our wives see us as competition some times. Thinking back many years ago, the girls could be pretty nasty to one another when they felt threatened.  Breaking any habit, where a brain reactive chemical is involved can be very hard, especially cold turkey. 
 

hang in there.

Let’s see, ya’all asked about my foot.  It bothers me more than I expected this time, that for sure. The padding in the wrap is compressing which leaves hard lumps. Like most people I then to migrate to the hard spots them my toe gets sore.  These are on the bottom of the wrap. It’s made out of the same stuff as a modern cast.  Wrap cotton then shape a layer to prevent movement. And finely an ace wrap.  Even though i don’t walk on it, it has flattened.  Other than that it’s doing well, thank you for asking.

 

on another front I have contacted the real company.  They actually have a scam reporting (or questioning) email address set up.  I think I can put this to bed once and for all.

 

guess I need to get life lock now.

 

Facebook live church in 10 minutes.  Seems odd to be in my bathrobe drinking coffee sitting in my recliner while attending church.  It’s a new day!

So today is the only day of the week I get to sleep in. I get my spouse out the door and put her lunch together on her work days (MTTFS this week). My workout starts at six am M-F. Today I am awakened at 5am by my cat who has parked himself in the bathtub and is singing the song of his people. I believe it was intended to be an opera because it will. not. stop.

So, up to feed the cats. Check the clock. it's 5:30. I guess I got to sleep in a little.

 

I did go back to bed after breakfast. My wife still wasn't up and I could use a cuddle.

 

@KymmieL, I'm sorry you've got to walk on eggshells around your family. I'm also sorry that they're choosing to act like mutton-heads. Nothing quite like shooting yourself in the foot because you're in a snit about something completely unrelated.

 

I want nothing to do with that road though. It's pretty flat here. I'm OK with that. We get enough nonsense in the winter without adding roller-coaster slopes to it.

 

@ElizabethStar, I have the same chat with my wife. I hear, "You're prettier than me." I hear, "You weigh less than me." I usually reply, "Well, I want it more. You were born with it. I've got to pursue it." Which is true. I think women take how beautiful they are for granted. After half a lifetime to denial I'm going to darn well do whatever I can to be the best woman I can be. I also offer advice. "Hey, I do X, Y and Z as part of my beauty regimen. I'll be happy to do it with you." She hasn't taken me up on it.

 

Dairy free was pretty easy. I'm lactose intolerant, so we just switched to almond milk. I'm OK with eating cows, chickens and pigs though. I mean have you MET a cow? You're doing them a favor. Same with chickens. Pigs are self-defense. Pigs are smart, evil and dangerous. Also kind of gross.

Cats and dogs? Never. Insect protein? Sure. Then again it's hard for me to consume all the protein I want in a given day just using plants. I'm making inroads, but at least some of my meals are probably going to have to include meat. You probably CAN just live on protein powder, but you wouldn't want to.

 

Though I have a friend who lives on protein powder, vegetables and salmon so maybe...

 

Hugs!

I remember driving on this stretch of road many years ago, during a summer road trip. "Highway to Heaven," as I remember it was described?

This is so relatable. It's the biggest stumbling block for my partner, being visible as a lesbian couple in the world. On the one hand, she says she has no problem with same-sex couples and everything LGBTQ, in fact we are friends with a few same-sex couples who are among our neighbors. Yet, when it's *her* relationship that is same-sex, it's suddenly a different story. Rigid, gender-binary ideas of how to be in a relationship are important, but they're also the very things that I'm moving away from, because the cis male role just isn't me. NYC is just about the safest place to be in any kind of relationship so it's not that. She's shared that it's hard to see me adopt the "feminine" role, perhaps seeing me as competition as @Willow describes. However, from my point of view, she will always be more feminine but I think that's the envy rooted in gender dysphoria talking. We speak about these problems together, and maybe it's better now than it was at first, but I fear that deep down, my partner is just not okay with all of this. If we break up in the future, this will be why. Sorry to hear that the tension between you and your wife has created an environment where it's so uncomfortable to be in the new home you worked so hard to buy and fix up. p.s. Love the new profile pic!

I've been a vegetarian for 17 years now, and I haven't looked back. I do eat a little dairy and eggs, cheese is a weakness of mine and those ingredients hide in a lot of foods, but otherwise I'm mostly vegan too. I'll eat salmon on rare occasion though. I thought I would miss eating meat, and maybe the first Thanksgiving and Christmas were difficult to break away from traditional ideas of eating turkey or ham, but the truth is I don't miss it anymore. Now my diet is pretty much automatic. It helps a lot that my partner has a similar diet. We recently got the "Plant Based Cookbook" from America's Test Kitchen that's got lots of great veggie and vegan recipes we're hoping to try, the Moroccan Lentil Soup that we're making tonight is in there.

 

@Chloe Cozee Glad to hear that your migraine has gone away! I have to be careful about coffee vs. water intake or I'll have the same issue, I feel like HRT has made me more prone to headaches of all kinds.

 

Feeling pretty positive this morning. I had a really fun girls night last night over Zoom. I can't stand watching the Bachelor, but I'll do practically anything if it means spending time with these friends, they have been so amazingly supportive and inclusive since I came out. Got a personalized eye makeup tutorial and that felt nice, but I really need the eyelash curler and magnifying mirror (now ordered and on the way!). I'm paying the price a little bit from staying up way later than I should have, they are on the West Coast so I was up until about 2am my time. At least it's been super quiet so I could sleep in.

 

I hope everyone has a fabulous Sunday!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

I lived in Tacoma Washington between 1975 and 1985. Beautiful country. Had to get used to working in the rain. Was vegetarian for all that time out there. Like you I ate eggs and dairy. Felt great. Health food stores and vegetarian restaurants were plentiful. Moved to north end of Chicago for 6 months after that. Plenty of health food stores there also. then to Central Illinois in the middle of farm country. Health food stores scarce here. Ended up becoming a meat eater again. It's ok though. Learned some healthy eating habits in Tacoma, Like eating the peels with potatoes, and making a salad with everything but the kitchen sink in it, and baking  instead of frying. My family thought I was nuts, but I'm healthier than them. Now days, grocery stores are carrying better food. I do like a good cup of coffee. I have a grind and brew machine. I like 8 o'clock brand with cold stone creamer.

 

Have a great day all.

Hi Jamie. Nice to see you here.  
 

it’s been a quiet day.  My wife and I had a nice talk this morning.  Little by little we are working things out.  It’s been just over a week out of six to recover and I’m already anxious to get back on my feet.  I’ve got a lot I need to be doing and wasting all this time sitting around is difficult to accept.

I don't know if something is going on or not. It seems like since Flows insurance screwed up and never sent a tow truck twice. My wife and Youngest have decided to get their own car insurance.

 

I don't know if they have something cooking between the two of them. But I am wondering. Are they working on getting everything from under me or???

 

Hell I don't know. What will I do if they wind up leaving before I do. Start pitching stuff of theirs. Leave just the stuff I want. Then cutting that down. until I have a manageable amount of stuff. When I do move. 

 

I look at if they want to leave, F them if they cannot be an adult about it.

 

Sorry to be debbie downer but I had to vent a little.

Hi Kymmie ,

Good Morning! Coffee is wonderful. We are supposed to get dump on with snow today. Going to work after shower and breakfast.

 

@KymmieL I hope you have a nice day. You have things on your mind. We are here if you need to vent or chat. That goes for anyone else. I know that if I need to chat or vent, it'll be here and you may need to pass me the Kleenex.

My coffee seemed to get cold faster than usual this morning,

 

Oh sure, now it's going to snow. In hind-site I did pray to the Goddess for the snow to hold off for a couple weeks while I was moving. She's just restoring the balance.

 

I managed to stay at home all day yesterday (no shopping) and work on things around the house. I worked on cleaning the guest room. It's still the hold place for things that need to be sorted and put away. I found a couple of totes of blankets, throws and a few comforters in our guest room. Laundry time! I was able to reduce the clutter to a stack of boxes along one wall.

 

Time to get ready for work.

Good morning 

 

My coffee seems better than usual today.  I have no idea why.  I am glad we aren’t getting snow this week, just an inch and a half of rain.  That would equate to enough snow to shut us down completely for a long time.  
 

Nothing is stirring not even a squirrel or a bird.  Hmm, what do they know that I don’t?  it’s supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow but just a one day tease.  We shouldn’t have those temps regularly until April.

 

well, my morning peace is being interrupted by bipeds and four wheelers.  
 

have a good day.

 

Hugs

Good morning everyone, is it really Monday already? That weekend felt exceptionally short, thank you subjective perception of time.

 

It was brisk for my morning exercise in the park, crystal clear skies today until the storm system in the Midwest finds its way here for tomorrow and makes a bit of a mess of things. Glad I made it out there though, I've missed very few days since the start of the year. Now I'm bundled up in warm blankets with some super hot black coffee and I'm one happy girl at the moment. One of the things I love about working from home is that I can get away with stuff like this sometimes. At least, until my meetings start in an hour and a half.

 

@KymmieL Vent if you need to - no worries, we're all here to listen and support each other! Sending hugs your way.

 

Have a lovely day, everyone!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

@ElizabethStar
 I'm looking forward to the snow we are about to get.  Stay safe out there and keep up with clearing it as it drops.  This snow will be super heavy. Sorry that's the my job bleeding through.

 

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I had a pretty good Sunday. Went out with the wife and bough a few pairs of women's jeans I can wear even in male mode, a cute skirt and a nice coat so I can go out in my cute jeans and not have to wear an ugly hoodie.  I am so grateful I have a wife and kids that accepts me for me. 

I have a call with doctor this afternoon about blood results. Hope I can start HRT this week. I will update later about how the call goes.

Good morning everyone, the coffee is good this morning but I may need to start an IV.

I did not get enough sleep last night so I have been slow on my start up. Working from home this week so at least I can dress how I like rather then having to present in boy mode.

 

 

Hope everyone has a Marvelous Monday!

Good morning everyone,

 

I love my baby sister-in-law, neither of them drink coffee and she bought a Keurig coffee system and Black Rifle Freedom Fuel coffee ☕️ for me.

 

HOT, black, and strong.

 

I left home a day early to avoid a Monday morning rush hour ice storm in the Indianapolis metro area. The bonus to that is I spent yesterday evening with my brother's family. My baby brother (57yrs.) has the better guest room so I made sure to reserve it for my two night stay in my hometown community. Jefferson Co. Missouri. To them I'm the patriarch of the family, and when I return to the area, each of my siblings as enjoyable as they are feel slighted if I don't visit them. I'm really here to deliver a hazmat training prop that the county LEPC and hazmat team purchased from me. So my visit with family is exspenced as a business trip, with reduced cost by avoiding hotel stays. Today I'm visiting my baby sister and her family, tomorrow I'll attend the LEPC meeting and do a train-the-trainer for the prop they purchased, and drive home to Indy metro.

 

Hugs,

What is this Monday everyone talks about it is Wednesday. OK, OK, at least for me. Well the good thing to hopefully look forward to is my E coming in the mail. That is if the horse didn't come up lame. 

 

Well my wife wasn't able to get her own insurance since she is still on my policy.

 

Close this week. SO I will be here in the mornings, same bat time same bat channel.

      I had a 77 359 Pete with a big cam 400 Cummins, A76 GMC Astro cab over with a 600 horse Detroit Diesel / silver 92 TT/A. It was built to haul oil pipe to Alaska so it was heavy duty and perfect for hauling coal in Ky.

      I saw a heartwarming/heart wrenching love story called Soldier’s Girl (2003) about six months ago and it was worth the cry. I was not disappointed. IMDB gives it 7.9 and it was well deserved.   Susan R🌷

      I had a cowl neck like that many years ago, but pink. I had a love hate relationship with it. It gave me the illusion I had breast, but was less revealing. What I didn't like, and why I avoided any thing with low necks. Was because I didn't have any breast. Even though I was fluffy, a push up bra didn't do munch. Now that I have proper breast tissue, and my muscles have changed to fat. A push up bra is my friend.    Also a friend got back to me, and said it looked cute, and agrees with you guys. I can pull it off for daytime.  She just is worried about the fit. I told her I would snap a picture of me wearing it later, and send her the picture.

      I'll never have that hourglass figure.  But it doesn't really seem to be a big issue for women in my (older) age range.  Perhaps age has its perks after all.

      I'm under 50 but still wanted to comment if that is ok. You said you can't bring yourself to talk to your wife about it, what about your daughter? Can you confide in her, and even check in with her to see how the wife would take it? Sometimes getting confirmation from another person that it may work out OK could give you that boost of confidence to approach her about it.
    • AwesomeClaire
      I don't have cleavage, but I have worn shirts for work that showed off quite a bit of chest, no one has said anything so far. As for age appropriate, I'm 37 and pretty much dress like a teenager (I get free clothes from a coworker's daughter when she gets tired of them). I have worn very small tops that show off a lot of chest and tummy, and things like fishnet stockings (not at work but out and about). I really don't think that top you showed is alarming in any way.
    • Jandi
      Sounds interesting.
    • Beatriz
      I liked very much a Chilean film called "Una mujer fantástica" (A fantastic woman, 2017). It's worth watching. Perhaps you can get it dubbed or subtitled in English.   Many Almodóvar movies portray an LGBTQ story or have it as a background. They range from the kitsch / camp to the profound, and they also vary in quality or inspiration, so people may love some and dislike others. If forced to recommend only one, I'd go for "La ley del deseo" (Law of desire, 1987).   Also, I recently watched a documentary called "Bambi" (2013) about Marie-Pierre Pruvot, nicknamed Bambi: a French trans woman born in Argelia who performed as a showgirl in the 50s and 60s and then became a teacher. She tells her story and I liked it very much.

      Even before I began my journey, I was always fascinated by hourglass figure. I was, of course, making up some silly reasons why I would need a waist-trainer ("it helps with weight loss") or corset. With the beginning of transition, it only made sense and became just a natural hope to achieve it. Currently, I can get a fairly good resemblance with steel-boned corset laced up all the way. And I absolutely love the feeling. One additional benefit, it helps with the posture so it is another reason to use it at least around house if you spend plenty of time sitting.   Cannot comment much on the padding, as I was starting with very non-masculine figure waist-down, and new fat redistribution only enhanced those areas to a point where shaping clothes are new reality in my future 🙂

      Facial Team uses a private contractor, a trans woman, who is quite skilled at photo shop.   She tries to only show you what is realistically possible.   They are only interested in removing male puberty damage as much as possible and some aging in my case.  I hope it is OK to mention FT here, they are a wonderful organization.      ---WILLOW---

      Some films I especially liked The Dress You Have On (YouTube omelleto channel) Normal (2003 with Tom Wilkerson and Jessica lange) The Crying Game Transamerica Zerophilia The Danish girl Call me by your name Hedwig and the angry inch The normal heart My life in pink   Any others you recommend?

      Holly that top certainly does push the PG label.  A bit close to X.     I once dressed a bit over the top.  After all i had somehow noticed the women with short skirts  and low tops more than the "plain" ones.  It was also fun at first to excite that glance from men.  Time has lengthened my skirts and yet somehow i feel just as feminine even in dirty jeans and top working the farm.    We all have our styles which makes the world go round.   Hugs,   Charlize
