Elizabeth, they're being cautious because they don't know who you are when on the phone.  Better to err on the safe side.

Sun shining here, roads cleared.

Wife is out in my truck, her car is in the shop. nothing major.

 

I've been working on my look, and btw, I don't have a hole in my throat, just sagging skin thank goodness.

(picture next door here)

 

Hippa laws. When I was teaching carpentry at the job corps, the center nurse came to me

and said she had a new student that wants my course, she said do not let him take your class.

My course involved power saws, and cutting and such.

Do to hippa laws all she could say was, and this is true, screw the law for a minute, the kid has aids.

So this kid comes to my shop and I lay all these blue prints and books on osha and math, and such.

I tell the kid it will take a year of classroom before the shop, (I lied about that to him)

He didn't take my class.

@Willow This is a Comfort Glow QDE 1320. Remote control also. Tipping safety switch, 3 infrared quartz bulbs

and fan driven. It is one of the best little heaters I've ever owned.

Cost $120.00, you've seen the pictures of my office, this little jewel will fry you out.

Good morning all.  Or rather good afternoon here.  I'm on my third cup of coffee before I head out to work.  I only have to work two hours today so it's not so bad.  We've had pesky on - off snow showers all morning.  It's not really sticking though so that's not too bad.

A big part of my problem is I only have 30 amps to spread between the heater, the refrigerator, the VERY important coffee pot and everything else that uses AC.  The tiny propane heater at 700 btu will roast you.  When I got up the electric heater was cranking but the place was only 60.  I turned on the propane and it was 72 in no time.  It is rated for indoor use.  Has all the tip over shut offs and a CO detector shutoff.  But I am leery to run it when I’m asleep.  Also since it is either on or off it would be a sauna in here.  
 

did our shopping today.  Came back with extra stuff.  (Shouldn’t shop on an empty stomach). Then we had to find places to put it all.  Oops!

 

The boat actually has a lot of storage.  Unfortunately a lot of it is taken with things that aren’t food.  One whole side is an 80 gallon water tank. The seat in front of the sail locker is taken up with an air conditioner. Under the third seat is full of tools and spare parts.  That would normally have minimal tools and parts but be full of canned food.  There is always the bilge but I’m still locating and fixing water leaking into the bilge.

 

speaking of fixing, I’ve got some indoor work to do.  I’ll check back later.

I'm kinda partial to the oil filled radiator ones. Don't have to worry much about someone dropping clothes too close to it. Takes a long time to heat up a room, but it stays warm real well.

Good afternoon! The coffee was almost as good as sleeping in my own bed after 4 days of traveling. Lol. And I must admit I have done nothing but sit on the couch and binge NCIS. I’ll get more active later… tomorrow.

Hi, I found and fixed another water leak.  It’s all been at joints between hoses and fixtures. Loose clamps. Stuff like that. I also installed a medicine cabinet over the sink in the head.  I did it for the mirror but there other advantages.  
 

not too happy with our local weatherman.  He seems to be zeroing in on ,

”article temperatures.” and ice storm Friday and Saturday.  I think he needs to go back to weather school and learn how to not predict winter weather for here.

An air conditioner?  On a sailboat.  Wow.

 

For weather I like Weather Underground since it links to the National Weather Service but also shows actual weather as reported on nearby local home weather stations.

Yes, an air conditioner.  It uses water, not air as a heat transfer median. Why? Well it gets hot in the south and you can’t sail everyday.  So when you are at anchor or tied up to a dock, rather than sweltering it’s nice to have an air conditioner.  I actually took it off another sail boat that I was salvaging.  Since it uses water, it’s a lot more efficient than your typical home ac.

One of the only professions  where you can be wrong half the time and still keep your job. Most anymore just read the computer, don't really do any meteorology.

I can imagine that it works like a radiator or chiller. It either runs water through it or over it with a fan blowing air past it to cool you. If the water your boat is in is clean enough, you could use it. Doesn't it keep at a pretty constant temp?

Good morning ya’ll. I volunteered to work my scheduled day off yesterday. The Mail Gawds conspired to make it the heaviest mail and parcel volume day we’ve ever seen. I worked a measly 13 hours. Think of the paycheck, right?

Yes it is. The only other profession where you can have an even lower winning percentage is left handed starting pitching.

Good morning everyone 

 

couple last things about the boat ac, water coming in goes through a strainer so it doesn’t clog anything.  It’s drawn in by a pump Then it acts essentially like a radiator (really a heat exchange) and finally exits the boat above the waterline.  It uses Freon with a compressor, gets cooled then expands in the air stream. A blower takes in the air at the unit and after chilling discharges it wherever you duct it too..   sorry if I mansplained.  I’m told I do that.

 

today is supposed to be the nice day of the week then down hill from here.  Winter storm watch has been issued. 🤬.   I am praying that no news is good news.

 

not much else to share unless you want to help with laundry.

I happened to me and ex wife even when I was in guy mode-legally married but different last name. It's a hippa thing.

Nothing new to report about my partner. I thought I posted something earlier but I don't see it. Maybe I forgot to hit submit. Probably for the better. I had to vent a little. I am losing faith in doctors being honest. Today I was told that her liver started working a little. That's nice, why didn't anyone tell me that it wasn't working? It was the same way I found out about her kidneys. They started working, a little bit. Totally after the fact.

@Elizabeth Star thank you for the update.  We are all with you in spirit and can feel your pain on some level.  I’ll keep praying for you and your partner.

 

sorry the doctors haven’t kept you fully informed,  I’ve had that experience too and it’s very upsetting.

 

sending hugs and love to you

My wife constantly getting that with her doctors. Are they all afraid that you can't take the bad news? Personally, I would rather know so I can prepare or just maybe come up with a fix.❤️

After this sinks in for a little while, I find that it's really not funny. There's really nothing funny about being "trans".

Mostly pain for us, and anyone around us. I guess some people make light of this so they don't cry. How many times have I made fun of gays and trans when I was crying about it inside. I don't like to even think about it.

As someone who does it, I get using dark humour as a coping mechanism, though I've only ever seen lists like those in an anti-trans context. There's a YouTuber called "One topic at a time" who looks at things like this in a light hearted and wholesome way. They usually lift my mood by the end of their videos. 🙂

      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

      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.😬
