Good morning All. Coffees on.

Recommended Posts

MarcieMarie12

We started the morning at 34, I am cold....the coffee and fruit loops helped. I also had a bowl of fruit and yogurt (parfait!). I am looking at a certain issue in regards to my  business and am worrying too much about it. One more obstacle to overcome......

Brrrrrr that's cold!  And I'm complaining about 49F LOL   Starting a business is hard work.  Those that have never done it don't really know how much work goes into it...if done well.

Morning everyone! The heatwave here finally has ended, thank goodness. It got to around 47 degrees celsius here last week (apparently 116.6 F). Now it's really pouring outside and it's wonderful. Parfait sounds wonderful right about now, I usually have some for Christmas but I am getting impatient lol. Just a few more weeks left!

 

I hope things with your business improve, MarcieMarie. One of my family members runs their own business and it seems so incredibly stressfull.

Parfait sounds nice. How do you make it?  Do you include fruit?   

 

Thinking of special desserts, I would love some bread pudding.  The nice gooey kind with maple syrup and whipped cream on top. MMMMM!   I've never tried to make it.  If I baked a pan it would make me fat!  It may only last a day!!

Made it to my daughter’s house.  We did not pick up our son on the way.  He contacted us and said he was sick and was going to come a day later.  Cold here, highs only in the 30s.  When you are used to 60s that’s cold. Had Nespresso this morning.

Hello all!  A cold start to the day but its warming up to be comfortable.  I had a visit this morning from a friend.  We spent the time catching up and had a good conversation about recovery as she recently had surgery.  

 

The sun is shining bright, but I do need to go to town to pay my property tax bill, argh!

Hi, cold here in the Top of Virginia too.  Not used to this. I also didn’t get any coffee today but that’s ok.  

 

Susan R  and Cluck1992, thanks for birthday wishes.  I had a great birthday this year.  My entire family got together for me this year.  That was the part that made it special to me.  The last three times we were all together it was for a funeral.  This was the first happy celebration in at least 5 years.

Good morning another cold start 18.  But it’s sunny and that makes a difference too.  Coffee and a blueberry muffin up next.  Have a great day everyone.

We have remained below freezing for a week+ now.  Glad i managed to put up a good supply of firewood and the barn is full of hay with a convent self protecting faucet so i can keep water available for the goats as they begin to show that February will be a busy month for kidding.  I'm finally without fever and while still on antibiotics able to work better and enjoy each day.  

I'm off today to the Woman's Imaging Center for a mamo, and a bone density scan.  It's about time i guess as i've put it off long enough.  Fortunately the girls seem to be resting without the ouchies so i'm sure it will be fine.

 

Hugs,

Another cold snap coming our way, but shouldn't get below freezing, except maybe overnight, and at least it should be brighter than the constant rain at the end of last week. Just about to get my breakfast before going to mum's!

Brandi, you must be in NW NE as that is the only area I know is warming up.

 

Morning all. Well in 7 minutes it will be good afternoon but whose looking at the clock. Thermometer  on out back fence says about 41, yeah right.  Forecast in the lower 30s with chance of snow. We have had our snow now it can warm up.

 

Folgers in my cup this morning. Well just about every morning.

      Wow, that dress pops in red! I may have to order one for myself! The black is nice as well.

      that's why we say "one step at a time". Honestly my understanding always evolve. For me it's so deeply rooted in instinct and childhood irrationals. I'm always finding new ways to describe what I feel so people understand as best as possible. I find that to describe how we feel language still fall horribly short. This can cause some extra confusion. I hope you will clear some of that confusion and shine a light on what your feelings mean to you. Good luck on what's to come.

      I am skipping it I think. I think it’s too much for my wife. As what usually happens she finally told me the issue. She is worried that someone would say something about me and she believes that wearing anything like a dress will make me more of a target. And then the real reason finally came out. She sees all the changes and is just overwhelmed. She wants things to go slower. She wants me to be her version of transitioning. And that’s understandable I think. But only to a certain point. It was like the shoes thing. She didn’t want me wearing women’s shoes for months. But then one day it was ok. And at this point there isn’t issue with shoes.  Its so hard to walk that line between both of us being happy about this process. But I have to remember how much she has lost as well. How hard all of this is for her. How it will take her time too. It took me 30 years. I can’t expect her to come to terms in 7 months.  I am going to try to find something like a pair of high waisted slacks and a shimmery top. Nothing too fancy. Nothing too feminine. Even though it is who I am, it’s not what she can see yet.

      Hello!          Let me start by saying hello to everyone. I knew when I was young that I landed in the wrong body. I prayed for God to take me at 9 years old. God hasn't taken me yet, and I am 51. Please know this Eliza. Go slow. Also be realistic. You sound like you have a plan. Remember cost. A fully functioning phalloplasty takes 2 or 3 surgeries. That is about 2 years worth. (healing, being able to use). I was quoted $50-55,000. Now, I am not here to be a downer. I want you to know that most surgeons do not work with Medicare. I have United Health Ins. through that and they will not work with it, they will give me an estimate. I cannot afford the procedure. BUT.....My friend, did get a metoidioplasty through Dr. Sherman Leis in PA, and is very happy. (That is the elongated clitoris). You said something about 4". This depends on how your built. The testosterone helps with the growth, I have been on it for 10 years.            If you "Google" FTM Bottom surgery you will get cost, the surgeons who do it, what is involved. You sound like you have it going on. The therapist letter is VERY important, appearing in public as the gender you wish to be is a stupid requirement, but must be done. (a therapist will vouch) I got everything but the $$. If I was a younger me, I would tell "me"....cost and a place to work like Starbucks. (they pay for your surgery!) Find out what insurance a surgeon will work with. It cost me $11,000 to go to San Francisco. $8,500 for the chest reconstruction and hotel, food, cab.            Only rely on you. YOU GOT THIS Eliza. IT CAN BE DONE. HAS BEEN DONE, AND I KNOW YOU WILL DO THIS.

      Having torn off the clothes off fear We stand naked in the world Exposing not our skin but our souls   And living bare in front of the world We cling tightly to the safety of the wreckage that was us Realizing, in time, that though adrift, we can swim   Why is there such gravity to being? We want each choice to be the right one We are infinitesimal Yet we're all we have   And Isn't it enough to be warm, safe and fed? Comfortable and loved? Though inevitably dead, we’re compelled To search for meaning in the wake of time   What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to be conscious? How will we use the time that we have left? How will we even use this moment?
    • SugarMagnolia
      Just a little doggerel after not being able to sleep the other night. It's OK to not have all the answers! 🙂     I'm not bothered when I don't know the time of day Or the weather tomorrow If I can't tell someone the way to this place or that Or where I got this hat   But it's two in the morning And it's somewhat demeaning That I have no answer In my search for meaning
    • Willow421
      MaryMary, thank you for your perspective on what it means to "look" or pass as female. I'm nowhere near this stage and still trying to understand what my feelings really mean to me, seeing a therapist help me process the issues. Dressing in your own style is so important, thank you for reminding people about that. I love the picture you posted in your sunglasses. You look awesome! Willow
    • Leo
      Kirsten, I like the dress you chose in black. Every woman needs a little black dress. The style and length is fairly neutral and can be dressed up or down so it is something you can wear on multiple occasions. Play around with different accessories, shoes, and jewelry to get the look you want.  Boots, lower heels, tights, Christmas themed jewelry are more casual, than 4 " heels and pearls. 
    • RithiaAllen
      Yes I agree. Part of it is because now it has an accent with the hair, shoes and the belt. It’s not all just one color.
    • SeekingSadie
      I know its easy for me to say sitting here in my closet on Google (Oh WOW I love the dress in that colour!), but if you know what's in store and what will fit in at the party and look good on you, and you know your wife will be happy doing her own thing then just go for it. Why not get dressed up? 
    • Kirsten
      Sadie, that second one is very nice. They do have my dress in red. But only online. I wouldn’t have it by Saturday so it’s gotta be something in-store. I have a charcoal gray turtleneck tunic that I can wear over my nice jeans if I don’t find anything.  I guess my issue is more that I just want to be dressed up someday. Being a parent of a 3 and 13 year old set of boys alone doesn’t allow much time for anything fancy. Add to that my wife who doesn’t even wear makeup and can’t walk in heels and it just seems like there is never a time to wear anything nice. Idk.  Here’s the dress in red. But it’s not in-store so not really an option either. 
    • Leo
      My thoughts are that you are getting a lot out of this relationship. Toxicity can be powerfully addicting.  However, like any drug it can ultimately destroy you. Therapy can be a lifeline out of this relationship. 
    • RithiaAllen
      I really like that second one.
