"Good morning ladies"! 

 

This is how my wife, and I were greeted this morning in the kitchen as we prepared coffee pots for the group here at the couples retreat with friends. We both had our backs turned to the main room and dining counter. My hair was down and I'm dressed in a sleeveless oversized tee shirt and baggy workout pants.

 

I know I said I wouldn't be around for a few days buy I couldn't keep this to myself.

 

Hugs for y'all from Southern Missouri

Emily, 

 

Thats horrible news, I hope your company has or finds a workplace grief counseling team. 

 

Since I’m not out to any of the people on this couples retreat, it was a huge inner smile 😊 I’m putting it in my journal t share with my wife when I come out to her in a few weeks.

Good Morning!  Today is the first appointment to those I need to complete for my surgery Wednesday. A Covid19 test then self isolation until the procedure.  The test is an internal swan of my deep sinus cavity.  A 30 second procedure but freaking 30 seconds of anything uncomfortable is an eternity!  It’s not going to be fun but oh well.  I NEED this surgery!  
 

In other news I received word the divorce is final and legal as of June 19th.  My Ex and I are planning a party!  Lol

Its one huge step closer to ending this chapter of Shawns life and starting my new life as Shawna.  There is not much left holding me back from moving away to go be with my best friend and soulmate Patti Anne.

 

Time for my morning coffee and makeup routine!  
Have a wonderful day and safe holiday weekend!

Shawna that’s great news I’m so happy to hear that. Well not the part about the self isolation and the covid test lol. I have to say that is a first for me holding a divorce party with your spouse haha, but that is good you ladies are on good terms.

 

just got up I actually slept in till 6am lol. It would not break my heart one bit if I didn’t do a thing today and tomorrow. I’m am completely drained mentally and physically. I don’t know why but my dysphoria has been horrible lately but oh well such is life

Whom ever cooked up the covid test must be a masochist.  Oh lets do a test where we shove a q-tip up the nose and try to touch the brain. No thank you.

 

Cooler today. forecast of 58. right now, 40 and cloudy. yucky day outside so far. 4 more days of work until a 5 day weekend. going to have Thurs-Mon off. I so need this break. With all the stress that I have had lately. It will be good to decompress some.

 

Have a great Sunday.

Hugs

I've done that. Apparently the inside of my sinus cavities are ticklish. Who knew?

 

Best of luck sweetie!

If you want to read Winter’s Grove - You have to search under “Grove” If you see Tessa. That’s my book. I love to write! Sometimes I think it’s all I really have to give to this world! 
 

It seems I’m always helping others but no one is there for me. When someone needs something I’m there. If you need a laugh or a shoulder to cry on or even someone just to listen I will be that for you. I’m not selfish with my time or heart. I will allow you to scream and cry. I will never judge you. Someone once told me I might be an Earth Angel. Angel’s are sent to specific people to help them and they rarely think of themselves. This describes me! Even my customers say that I have a sweet calming voice and I am almost always thought of as female over the phone. In fact one customer asked me if they could just talk. My trans daughter always will call me to let out her frustrations. I give my money and time away to help others in need. Just the other day a child at the lake was asking me to take his picture because he caught a fish. His mom was there and I would never do this without permission. Mom said no. The boy wanted someone to be proud of him. I was there for him. 
 

My Aunt was about to make a financial decision that was set up by a fraudster. I saved her 5,000 dollars! She let me live in her house for free a couple years ago. So, people do help me. I need to see the blessings in my life and take stock of them! 
 

Love to all

 

Tessa❤️

      Hi everyone    Love the new pic Patti.  Good luck with the Job interview Shawna.   I had a great day today.  My wife and I went shopping.  Michael’s for some sewing items them our mall to window shop.  No one appeared to see anything but two women shopping together.  Never got misgendered.  Even got a complement on the dress I was wearing.  This just topped off a great weekend.   Willow

      I agree with @Gaylord Still great work and great words.

      Thank you for talking about this and learning.  Before this Virus problem started I used to get flyers from ULTA and Sephora cosmetics and their stuff had scratch and sniff inserts in them.  My computer chair is near where the mail drops in, and more than once I have rolled the chair wheels over the flyers, and set off the samples.  They can have me sneezing for an hour or two.  In my CD days, the stronger the perfume smell was the desired motif, I do not miss those times.

      I'm guessing you went noseblind to it. My dad's the same way with cologne. He wore it every day for a while, and after some time passed it started to get stronger... and stronger...   Hugs!

      I shop at Torrid, Long Tall Sally, Target and the local thrift stores. I like cruising the resale shops with my wife, it's a fun outing and sometimes I get something pretty. Don't discount skinny jeans though, I've got no hips so they fit better than regular cut. I'm an XL-Tall at 5' 11" and... no idea what I weigh anymore. I hope less than 210. I haven't been able to check since the pandemic. We don't own a scale.   Hugs!

      OK, now we're a step closer to each other.  I have a non-binary brain in a male body.  Lots of girl stuff and lots of boy stuff for me.   I just got a perspective shift.  If you have that fully female brain, then I see how you say "I have the wrong body!"   And you got a perspective shift, "Oh, I have a female brain."  This is how I was thinking of the MtF people the whole time and I didn't see the pain of "I have the wrong body" until a few days ago.   Very cool.  You can see that for me, I don't think, "I have the wrong body"  I just think, "I have an abby normal brain!" --Grace

      Ok, I'm tired.  I'm tired of spending hours and hours looking for pants and tops for tall women.  At reasonable prices.  I can't pay $79 for a single top, Lane Bryant.  You, too, Long Tall Sally.  Goodwill, you have tons of clothes but could you please put the tall stuff in a special section?  Amazon, you have 40,000 pairs of jeans and no checkbox on the left for "Tall".  How am I supposed to look through 40,000 pairs of jeans?!  Also, some of us are getting older... I don't want skinny jeans, I want a stretch waistband with normal legs.  My eyes are bugging from screen searching so much I'm going to need a new prescription for my glasses.   Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find tall clothes for older gals at affordable prices?  I'm only 5'11"... it shouldn't be this hard!

      This is a highly volatile subject that could get heated so I won't fully go there. I will say however, that here in NH, we had a long standing sexist code. In the Union Leader or any other classifieds here, there's a phrase code of "Must be able to lift 50 lbs and over." It's a blatant way of saying MEN ONLY. Women need not apply. I found this out by accident in my early 20's. I'd been in the air force, worked in stables where lifting 50 lbs happened a dozen times a day with feed, manure and tack. I applied for the job but the guy saw a 5 foot female and immediately said, "This ain't the place for you little girl. The ad is for men. Gotta lift 50 lbs." No joke.

      Keep in mind that a lot of rhetoric we hear comes from the loud mouths.  In this country there has always been, and will continue to be, a silent majority, people who have an opinion but don't feel the need to shout about it at the top of their lungs.  I learned long ago to try and tune out the loud mouths and the news reported primarily for sensationalist reasons.  We have to look past all BS we are made to see and hear to really feel the pulse of the nation.  If we take the time to do that, we see that most people don't take issue with the way we express ourselves.  It's only the terrified loud mouths who are making all the racket, and they really, are the minority.  My experiences as a trans woman have for the most part, been extremely positive, and I absolutely refuse to cower in the face of a few blowhards.  Take heart, that it is never really as bad out there as it can sometimes seem.

      Wow it's great. I like the first version better because it gave a sense of tension and dramatic irony to the verses with a big reveal at the end of each verse. For example insurance coverage only restriction verse tells a story through time in your first version that gets lost in the second and I also love the drama of the line where the girl inside was evicted in the first version. Maybe for verses that are more final you could switch to the couplet to ground and sober the feelings.. It sounds good!

      Fear is mostly the reason I've been in hiding for the past 8 years.  Had a couple of bad experiences when I first moved here (I assumed all of Oregon was LGBTQ friendly... not!) while I watched the turmoil rise across the country about gay marriage.  I told myself and others, "This is going to get worse before it gets better.  I'm tagging out for a while."   Now things are getting to a fever pitch and the troublemakers are all up in the news.  It's the last ditch efforts of the minority who want to turn the clocks back to 1945.  They won't go down without a fight, that's always the way these things go.  They really are the few but they make a lot of noise.  The majority of people are good, as it always has been.  Remember that the majority of people quietly staying at home and out of the fight are good, too.   Hiding isn't working for me any longer.  We have to be safe and smart, but we don't have to stay quiet.     That's exactly how the establishment wants it.  Keep the masses distracted quarreling among themselves so we don't see the power-grabs they are pulling.  That's not new in this country.  It's always been that way, especially since the '60's.  We have to do what our heart desires.  In the end, we will prevail, I know it.  Always remember we're not the first to have to fight for our rights and acceptance.

      Earlier to day, my wife and I were out doing a couple of errands, we took her car so she was driving.  After about five minutes in the car she said: "I guess your sense of smell is getting old, because you are wearing too much perfume."  Rats, I thought I was using my perfume sparingly, but perhaps not.  Is my "smeller" actually getting old, or, do I simply adjust to the fragrance after I apply it?  Not sure the reason, but I guess I need to be more sensitive to how much I am wearing.  I myself, have experienced the perfume cloud that surrounds certain women, so, I know how easily perfume can become overpowering.  I took my wife's comment to heart for next time when I'll be sure to spritz only once.  Where perfume is concerned, less really is more.
