I'm new at this chit chat stuff. I've been a quiet person all my life. I put my foot in my mouth quite frequently.

You're good. We can be quit chatty at times but there are also quiet times around here. I couldn't tell you how many times I though I said something wrong and killed a thread.

 I wasn't offended. I laid down in bed and listened to a meditation recording. Now off to the shower and the grocery store. I'll try not to spend the entire time looking at the nail polish and actually get a few groceries.

I can't speak for everyone, but I was dilatating and chatting with my spouse. So, couples activities I hadn't considered.

 

As for my breasts... eh, they're fine so long as they're there when I need them. We're a team and I'm a long way from perfect, I can't expect them to be perfect either.

 

Hugs!

Well said. 

If I ever do offend anyone, please tell me so I won't do it again.

😆I'm in the middle of doing my nails. This no UV light needed gel stuff sucks. It takes all day to dry, don't know why I use it.

Lots of activity here since last night! Many of us are early risers or morning people it seems. Myself included. Though 8am feels like sleeping in. First cup of coffee is in hand, and I'm having a debate with myself whether I should layer up and exercise in the freezing cold, or just be lazy this morning. Laziness appears to be winning. ☕

 

My partner and I made the veggie lasagna last night. We overcooked it a bit because the edges got burned, but the flavor was right. I must say that the cauliflower and cashew mixture really did resemble the texture of ricotta cheese though not the taste. Lots of leftovers to enjoy all weekend long now. Probably going to spend the day inside, a Hulu binge feels like it's in order today.

 

Painting my nails. Now that's a good idea. I can usually get about three or four days of nice-looking nails after I do them. I have my eye on a bright red one called "Bordeaux" (by Karma Hues) in my partner's stash. @ElizabethStar All day to dry? What brand are you using? Mine is dry in an hour, base coat and top coat.

 

Love,

~Audrey.

I really ought to paint my nails. It would cover up the damage my diet and gym routine do to them. The poor things are a mess. Maybe a nice, cool peach...

I'm glad it turned out good. I like the edges a little dark. I usually sprinkle some sharp cheddar or other sharp cheese on top, then brown.

It's Sally Hansen Miracle Gel. I'm sure it's me but I've never had good luck with. Should just stick with UV gel polish, I've got a light.

The one and only one I have is a kind of candy apple burgundy/blood red. I love it. Peach sounds nice.

OK, that didn't work. What was I thinking, gold & black glitter on fuchsia? At least it's not dry and scrapes off easy. Lets' try that again.

 

Hi, I'm  Liz. I'm drinking coffee and painting nails.

I use Sally Hansen Diamond Strength polish. No UV light and dries fast. Fav color is 120 Diamonds. A pearly color with sparkle glitter in it. I also like colors Wedding Crasher (purple), Something Blue (baby blue), and Champagne Toast (Pink). 

 

I was thinking of a veggie lasagna for dinner tonight!

Good morning everyone, Y'all wake up way to early on the weekends. The birds don't get to the feeders until it's light outside. I'm on my second cup of coffee. The cats are fed, the litter boxes have been tended to, and we're watching the bird activity pick up. They're indicating snow is on the was. The snow blower is at the ready, and my waterproof winter gear is out of storage. This will be the last year I wear it because it's gotten to big for the new me. 

 

@Jamie68 your post wasn't anything to worry about, and those that seemed to fade away are probably napping. 

 

Hugs,

Good morning 

 

I've been drinking my coffee and reading the posts.  I will say I often write something, read it, then erase it because it doesn’t say what I was trying to say.  But I would say periods of silence don’t have anything to do with what anyone said.

 

wearing certain things is off limits with my wife.  For example I received several suggestions for a flannel night gown because of my surgery, well an agreement we have is the the bedroom is a Willow free zone.  I’m ok because I’d rather sleep nude anyway.  Nail polish is another one although that on I’m not understanding.  I can wear full makeup, dresses, skirts, she even made me a jumper so what the deal s with nail polish I don’t know.

 

well I guess I’ll get going for my day.  Back later.

Oh no, Elizabeth... at least nail polish is one of the most forgiving cosmetics. My polish remover smells like lavender so I get a little aromatherapy whenever I use it. Eyeshadow, on the other hand, yeah that's not so forgiving. Ask me how I know.  🤣@Willow That's interesting about your wife's feelings around nail polish especially since she's accepting of the clothes and other makeup. Even clear polish?

 

I found some surprise motivation to go out and exercise anyway, but half as much as I would normally do. There were a few other brave souls out there but way less than usual for a Saturday morning. I don't think I ever made hot tea so fast when I came back home.

 

@Chloe Cozee I hope yours turns out as well as ours did!

 

Everyone enjoy your day!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

Don’t forget the stabilizer.

Good morning @Willow,

 

I Seafoam every gallon of fuel I purchase for my small gas engines. Clean Air, fresh fuel, and a hot spark lets the engine pur like a cat, even at the lowest idle. Sharp blades and fresh belts also improve reliably. 

 

Hugs (still masked)

Good Morning, guys and gals.

 

Actually slept in this morning. Cuddled with momma. Don't know why I can only sleep in when she is with me. Go figure.

 

Unusual I have to close today. We lost 2 people. but the company wouldn't let us even advertise for someone until after they left. Totally stupid. SO there is 4 of us to run the store.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

From all my experiences with larger businesses, I'm absolutely certain that you cannot reach a decision-making level within the corporation without receiving some sort of ceremonial head-injury. Seriously, it's like when they become "in charge" they also flip a switch that says "hamstring the people on the front lines." Madness.

Then they complain about how morale is so low.

Technically, economics theory says you can’t increase any factor in your process formula without increasing efficiency or cutting profit.  If you reduce profit too much you will no longer exist.  Similarly, messing with any part of your process without making an offset change elsewhere will affect your productivity.

 

Our elected officials don’t understand basic economics either.  Everyone says we need to raise minimum wage to double.  But what happens when you do that?  The cost of everything goes up.  Is the person making minimum wage any better off?  No! They don’t have anymore buying power.  Now, the other side of the argument is that their wages should have been increased annually based on the rate of inflation.  Because it wasn’t, they lost buying power.  It is a two edged sword.

 

@Mmindy I mentioned fresh ... because there was a conversation last week where someone else was trying to operate a snow thrower on two year old gas that sat in the tank.  It was a refresher from that for those who aren’t used to needing their power equipment on a regular basis.  Clearly in Indiana you use your snow thrower.  
 

@KymmieL it’s nice to be able to cuddle on a cold night.

      I have heard that getting those 'feelings' is not a universal experience, but for me it happened and I hadn't read much about that aspect of it so thinking it was real and not just a placebo effect.

      Today will be the first time since May 30th when I can have my morning tea (sorry, coffee fans) at home, have a second cuppa later, and it was very weird to go from barely going far from home since last March to never being there for half a month with no notice.    Anyway, I did have an occasional discussion of transgender issues and also gender roles while away with a mix of people who know about me and those that don't.    Couple highlights...having one of my mother's newer friends accidentally refer to me as my mother's daughter, that was nice to hear at least once if it was quickly apologized.    And then my son-in-law (who I 'came out to' by telling my daughter that she could tell him everything she wanted to, just that I was emotionally spent to do it right after her) dropping in a proper pronoun of me that I almost missed it and actually asked if he did so the next day. (yes).

      Hi All,   Today I noticed I've become a 'senior member' on this site...😠   Not happy at all, makes me feel instantly old. 😄   I still feel so young in this journey...   Just today, I went out to 'test the waters' with a new (too expensive) Gaff I bought from the UK. Turned out...It wasn't the Holy Grail.😒   I put it on over a high waisted tummy control panty Over that the gaff...then don a (leave nothing to the imagination) pair of just above the knee Yoga pants.   And I was quite happy it look flat enough up front so I went out with more abandon.   I visited 3 markets without any discernible 'clocking'. Got a (non German reference) "hun" from one of the checkout ladies which I took it as I passed. Was wearing a crop tank top and a white translucent cotton shirt over so I suppose looked like a cover up over Athletic wear...   Later though when I returned, was comfortably seated with my legs bunched and tucked up for lunch on a chair when I looked down and noticed (Horror of horror) still a good size bulge.😳   I just can't seem to flatten it fully without resorting to tape which I hate and avoid.😞   I think I'm doing the right thing with the canals but maybe my testicle friends are too heavy or what bc they seem to never stay up....always falling for gravity.   Anyone think I might be not employing the Gaff to its full optimum? Maybe I'm doing something wrong?🤔   ...or is this common with everyone and does a more visually 'water tight' tuck mean having to tape when wearing skin hugging item of clothing anyway? Am I just being too slack reliant on gaff alone to do the work?   (Maybe this should be in the crossdresser section)   I'm contemplating the ills and benefits of an Orchiectomy (still yet to get on HRT) but till then, I'm obsessed with hiding the pair of them. They bother me but I don't want to hurt them either.🙄

      I am sorry you are having to deal with depression and I wish I had and answer for you. I deal with compulsive over eating disorder and at times I will binge eat for weeks until it subsides. The last few years  have been really hard and with covid quarantine on top of that I have put on so much weight even I can't believe it. I just can't control it and at times don't care if I get fatter. Working with a nutritionist but she is so backed up with patients and in the process of moving so its not working out. Are you being treated by professional that deals with depression?

      ...the funny thing is I've always dressed somewhat neutral/femme so people around me tend to think its just me being eccentric.   Today my sister warned me to tone down maybe fall back on dungarees if I was going to visit my cousin (She's a great cook had 12 kids or something ridiculous) in Northern Cali.🤭   But I reminded her that cousin was on my facebook and I have been posting pics of me in yoga pants...galore. Surely she must have put two and two together...🤔   I have half a mind now to show up in a dress.😁

      Hey y’all. I’m planning on coming out as trans at my workplace soon. I only plan on coming out to my department for now, as the rest of the company is elderly cis straight religious men and I feel that they will react poorly.   Many of my coworkers have suspicions of me being queer, and have voiced them, so it won’t be coming out of nowhere.The company I work at has, as far as I’m aware, never had a trans employee and I’m sure it’ll be tough, but I’m sick and tired of the closet.   any advice? What issues or obstacles do y’all think I should expect?    Thank y’all so much for your help! - River     P.S. Do y’all think that bringing a cake when I tell them would be a bad idea? We bring food for our department regularly so I thought maybe it’d be a good idea. Let me know what you think please?

      Hi Vini,   You know what I've found gives me decent 'form' without prejudice to comfort is Dungarees. 🤗   I'm personally allergic to Denim so I get light cloth/cotton types that have a slight flare around the hips accentuating them.   I don't need to be as careful with my tuck which is another benefit.😄   But today I went out with a new B&B Gaff (from the UK...bloody expensive as they say)....and the whole purpose was to test the water with a pair of tight just above the knee (Leave not much to imagination) yoga shorts.😬   It seemed a better flat look than my previous "gaff" so I went out with a bit more abandon. (what you don't know sometimes emboldens you and makes you fearless)😌   OTOH when back at the house following replenishment mission (99cents, supermarket, Trader Joes) to restock fridge and larder raided by Teenagers... I was sitting with my legs bunched up and looked down to notice there was still a bulge which was annoying, another sign of dysphoria.   I still can't seem to be completely satisfied with the flatness (without having to resort to masochistic taping which I avoid)😓   ...but of course somewhat expected I suppose, since I was 'testing the boundaries'.   Still when I was out, I had the checkout lady at the market call me "Hun" (and not the German kind) so I reckon it was a pass till I of course opened my big mouth.🙄   Cest La Vie.

      ❤️Thanks everyone. I'll definitely wear heels next time. My knees are a little achy from another weekend of yard work so I wore the other boots. I'm feeling better now. No compliments,their loss. They could've seen me smile. I think everyone was in a crappy mood today. Maybe it's the retrograde.

      How drastically my life changed for the better. Prior to this I was regularly miserable despite having gone through therapy and couldn't understand why I still felt the way that I did. Coming to terms with myself and coming out as a whole has dramatically improved my social and personal life overall. I would never take back embracing myself for who I am no matter what
