Good news! Got a great lab test result on my diabetes just now. It had gone up quite a bit due to many factors: stress, diet, exercise . . . stress. And with a  new plan and new meds, it's back down to (not exactly normal) but it's a great improvement for only three months and means no long-term problems from it. Long-term good news—give me more of that! Sigh.

hugs,

Davie

She just casually replied “no, we’re married”.

That's an uplifting experience, it is fun to watch the reactions of people when they put two and two together.

Banner day for me, got gendered half correctly once and then correctly later on. 

 

Was dealing with an unreadable screen at a parking lot pay gate: "You're good, sir! Or ma'am?"

 

And waiting at a counter, "Are you being helped, Miss?" 

 

I could get used to this!

Yay!  I got a thrill from my wife and I being addressed as "ladies" in restaurants the first few dozen times it happened.  Okay, okay, I still get a thrill from it.  Enjoy!

It's such a good feeling when this happens. I don't get misgendered much these days but still it makes my soul happy when I hear people using the correct pronouns and descriptors when talking about me.

When I got home last night my partner needed me to go with her to the dispensary. There’s some regulation that you have to have you ID on the counter when working with the associates. This was the first time we ever had them side by side. My partner noticed and commented about how we look pretty similar. The cashier overheard, stopped for a moment and also looked at the pictures. Without hesitation (probably because we have the same last name) he asked if we were sisters. She just casually replied “no, we’re married”. The poor guy looked so confused. 🤣🤣

Good morning everyone,

The second rush on the bird feeders has started. The fog here was so heavy this morning you could barely see the the most distant feeder, and you surely couldn't see across the street. It has lifted now.

The coffee is HOT, black, strong, and has a mixer in it. Eggnog and Tullamore Dew. NO POWER TOOLS TODAY.

 

I hope everyone has the best day they can today.

That's great @RhondaS

 

A funny story. On Thanksgiving Day, my husband and I took our two pups for a walk. We encountered a utility worker who was getting some equipment out of his truck. I said, "happy Thanksgiving." He said, "thank you, and happy Thanksgiving to you, ma'am." I stiffened and cringed reflexively, but replied, "thank you." Then, he pointed to our female husky (who, by the way, is very queenly in appearance) and commented, "he's a beautiful dog." It actually made me feel a lot better that he misgendered me AND our husky, lol. In my mind I decided he must have gender dyslexia, and it amused me.

Girls with hammers, have nothing on a girl with electric, and air operated power tools.

Bring on the hydraulic power.  Sitting on the backhoe slight finger movements push rocks aside and open trenches.  After a lifetime of building i enjoy what this old transgender woman can still do.

 

Hugs,

OK, while I didn't use any power tools. I pretty much got the remote start put in the wife's car. I still need to do the door locks and the hood pin.

 

Speaking of air power tools. I got myself a couple of Xmas presents already. I picked up a Warn 10K winch w/synthetic rope. I also picked up a ARB dual air compressor.  All I will need is  an air tank and I can finally use my neglected power tools. Ones I haven't used in 12 or so years.

      I really liked that, Ticket! Now I'm looking up more of her music...

      I waver and waffle, but I usually wind up on the right side of the hill by the end. I suppose it's a combination of letting myself feel the feelings, then taking steps to move forward. Sometimes it's journaling about my feelings and tracking them back and forth in words. Sometimes it's having a conversation with a friend or my wife. Sometimes it's a nap. When things are really bad, I think of my wife and kids and how much I love them and how I would march through fire for them.

      Welcome Laura Marie! Glad you're here. I stopped to think what my life was like in 1992. It wasn't transitioning, I was deep in the corner of a dark closet, with a lot of self hate & denial. How did you come to accept you as you? Was there any support?   Hugs! Delcina

      I am having a difficult time with this hiding. So I think I am going to start pushing my boundaries. This week I came out to a friend at work. He is supportive and told me he is available if I need to talk. I then spoke to my brother and he and his wife now know. They both told me that they still love me and though they do not understand that this is about my happiness and they want me to be happy. I plan on talking to my sister soon. Then the hard part will be talking to my son, he worries me the most but this must be done. Then i will start to look at work. I would like to be full time by the end of this summer.   Done hiding!    ~Rachel

      Well had a good feeling today. Our apt is about 50 yrds from the parking lot. It is a PIA. SO today I am walking out to do some work on the wagon. Get her ready for the road trip tomorrow.   I notice that my pony tail is bouncing as I walked. Just like a girls does. I made me feel great.   Kymmie

      Hi it's nice to meet you
    • Artpetal
      I'm naturally a happy person and it's only the bad things that have made me more timid over the years. It's easy to be happy and it's difficult (with a -cult) to be upset...

      I forgot to mention. Second day on my new job. Yesterday was all paperwork, today was all over the plant. Introduced to everyone as Hannah, and she this, her that. So awesome. Then I found out that my name badge can't have Hannah on it until I legally change my name. Not what I was initially told.😟 It actually didn't hit me all that hard at first, until I was introduced to a couple of folks in the same job who had their name badges hanging on their shirt pockets. Got kinda triggered.😬
