@JustineM, I’m glad you’re safe! That CrewDragon is a pretty cool machine huh?

 Thanks, worn out but safe here. And yeah, that is a sleek looking machine. Been trying to follow the testing and development of the program as closely as I can.

Went for a ride today. Over the Snowy range, stopped in a no stop light town. Had lunch then up to I-80 back to Laramie. Still quite a bit of snow up there. Turns out I only have a 4 day weekend. Have to open tomorrow. But off at 1pm Thursday and off Friday.

 

Hugs

@KymmieL,

 

That bike is GORGEOUS!!! I love taking my bike out in the good weather but family needs have kinda prevented my first ride of the season. I’ve been riding Buells for a few years now and love my S2 Thunderbolt. HD power in a tube chassis! 
 

Stay safe out there. Lots of cagers distracted by their phones. Remember, keep her rubber side down.

Morning comes, but not a wink of sleep to be had.😩

But had me cup of joe. Sadly, I might need to buy a new bialetti coffee pot. Sounds like it's dieing. Such a high pitch screeching noise when it's barely started percolating. 😑Cleaned as best I could, even cleaned the valve, still screeches like a beast. The metal filter for holding the grounds in, is such a pain to clean, feel it must be somewhat to blame.

Good morning everyone it’s Monday haha! Yesterday was a good day went for a little bike ride in the morning, did some housework, and did a little shopping even though we didn’t buy anything. Then my wife’s parents came over for dinner. They asked us if we wanted to go to Florida with them we said we would go, but I told my wife later I would go but I want to be out to them before we go. So coming out to them along with everyone else is gonna have to happen soon. Here I thought I could hide longer boy was I wrong lol.

Good morning,

 

I fully understand the not ready to come out to the world.  I too am there.  I have no advice to offer.

 

But, I have finally reached the critical point when you can’t stay private anymore.  No, it’s not because of anything in my physical appearance although my body hair has changed and I’ve seen a little breast growth.  It’s a mental thing.  You eventually get to the place that you don’t want to hide, but you are still scared.  I passed that point this weekend.  I told a friend who I knew wouldn’t judge, then I told my brother in law and his wife.  That was a hurdle I was concerned about because they are ultra conservative.  It actually was no problem.  They accepted it hugged me afterwards, and thanked me for confiding in them.  
 

I guess you never know but I broke through the barrier.  Yes it is also a weight off your mind.  Do it on your own timeline don’t force it, but you will feel relief when the time is right and you start telling people.

Good morning @Emily michelle!

 

My advice is to just do it. I know it's scary as all get out, but if you keep making excuses you'll never actually manage to come out on your own terms. Your first attempts will be bumbly and awkward. Don't panic. Like any skill, it needs to be practiced before you reach proficiency. Delaying only results in, for example, some random guy in the locker room commenting on how brave you are for changing in there despite your obvious female breasts.

 

The people that honestly care about you will still accept you. The ones that were on the fence could go either way. In any case, this is one of those situations where you really find out who your friends are and which family members you want to keep close.

 

I've got a pretty boring day planned. I've had waffles and gone through my morning maintenance routine. I expect to spend the rest of the day writing, going to doctor's appointments and figuring out what I'm going to do about dinner. I'm thinking Chinese barbecue chicken.

 

Hugs!

Fingers crossed, babe. But if you don't get this one, there are always others out there.

 

And with that resume, if they don't hire you, they're fools. And no one wants to work for a fool. So either way you come out ahead. 

 

Good luck, Babe! xoxo

  Sun is shining and The smell of coffee is in the air. A few quick errands, kiosk coffee with DD1, a small chore for the ex and then home. This afternoon will involve making the last three panels for my painting series.

  Some others here have been chatting about loss of male privilege and how the change from male to female effects things not previously considered. Example, I have been going to the same lumber yard for over a year to get the materials to make the panels I paint on. I have been charged three different prices. The owner who I have known since before I transitioned charged me $45, a male clerk I did not know charged me $53 ( his excuse was a milling fee for each cut of the plywood, four cuts @ $1.00 per cut) and the woman clerk who charged me $35. All for the same material, same previous dimensions and number of cuts. I wonder if something low cut would help or maybe just butch it up and see if there is a difference. As my ex said “You wanted to transition now you pay the price...welcome to being a woman”.

She looks great! Can’t wait to see a pic of ShawnaLeigh and Patti Anne together. What a cute couple!

 

Having my morning cup of java...vanilla Americana today. Not bad but it’s a flavor that I’d grow tired of very quickly. Will be doing gardening all day today.

Tomorrow, if plans work out, I’ll be spending the day at the park having a picnic with my 13 year old grandson and my wife. This will be very interesting because he has only been allowed to meet us once in a very controlled setting for an hour of so when I first ‘came out’ to them last April. My new son-in-law (his new step-dad) is NOT keen on anything trans and has kept both grandsons away from my wife and I. My grandson seems indifferent and shy about my changes but sometimes this attitude and hate for a group can be passed down. I hope this isn’t the case. I’ll find out tomorrow.

Ok. Good morning/afternoon all! I just had the absolute most amazing experience EVER!!!!

 

As I was walking back into work from lunch, I saw one of the front office people and called them by the name I knew them by. Ashley. They proceeded to let me know it was just Ash from now on and they are getting legal name change an all. To which brought on my conversation about me being trans the other way around. And it felt AMAZING to know I work with such an amazing variety of people!

 

Our HR manager is gay, one of my very good friends is lesbian, and now us trans on either side of the coin... All under the same roof!!! I love it!!!

 

Hugs ❤️

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.

Up early.  230am and just couldn’t get back to sleep as my Mind is still buzzing from yesterday’s events. I posted about it in another thread as to not junk up this one with my drivel.   
Just now getting my first mug of coffee in me then a quick shower.  Gotta keep the wound clean. 
More planning, calling, and receiving of guests who hopefully will be buying more of Shawns hobby toys.  
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

      So, after almost a year on T, I can finally grow some decent facial hair. There's something about my genetics, all the men in the family look better with face-fur, so after spending some time with an unkempt beard to see how much it would grow out, I decided to try 'scaping. Turns out, I love the goatee look. Now, I haven't officially come out to my Aikido dojo as a group yet, so I've been shaving my face before I go to classes to keep from having to deal with certain logistical issues (changing rooms). Today, I took a huge step since we're all wearing masks and practicing outside anyhow, and wore my goatee to class today! I got a congratulations from the people who know I'm transitioning, but absolutely no negative feedback from anyone else. I'm ok with no one saying a word about it, its better than being attacked for it!   This was also the first time I've 'scaped in front of my unsupportive and transphobic family. They've gotten used to seeing the unkempt beard since I'm often too lazy to shave, but this was the first time I've had a definite male face. Since I've told them I'm transitioning, they haven't said anything negative about the new look, although I know it rocks their world quite a bit. I'm just glad they didn't freak out and make me shave it off completely! I love this look.

      I just placed an order for a pair of loafers, it is a gift from me to me with love. I had an eye for these shoes and today they were marked down. so I got them.

      I live in Houston as well, and am currently researching top surgeons. We do have several specialists here in town that I personally would consider going to. Your son is soooooo lucky to have you, my parents are totally unsupportive and I have to figure out how to get everything done on my own, with no financial help. Finances and logistical considerations being what they are, in a pandemic, I don't think you're being unreasonable to check into local surgeons first. I mean, we do have a world-class medical center right here, there's no reason to leave the city unless there are some very special mitigating circumstances. Just my cheap 2 pennies' worth.
    • Emily michelle
      That’s great news I’m glad they are supportive!

      Lets make a habit and post funny pictures of the day, I start first:  
    • Shay
      Yes - played the traditional Taking Care of Business by Bachman Turner Overweight.  Seagull is my favorite BC song - forgot about that one - thanks for reminding - I need to revisit. Once Paul Rodgers left BD I lost interest although I did buy Holy Water and liked what I heard. Smoke on the Water - yes - I did in my first band and I remember playing a church festival, breaking a string on my electric and doing the song on a 12 string acoustic. We were really horrible....
    • SaraAW
      Hope everyone is having a good day. I sent an email coming out to my parents last evening. They got back to me at noon today. They were shocked but are 100% supportive. I’m so pleasantly surprised, I thought it would take them some time to come around. Finally stopped the happy tears flood about 30 minutes ago.  Next is my little sis. 2 1/2 out of 3 so far. Hugs! Hopefully I can nudge my wife over to fully onboard soon.

      Funny how how i hated the mirror for a long time.  Then it became a love hate thing.  Today i'm simply trying to love whoever i see with as little judgement as possible.  Sure brushing my wig or a little makeup can ice the cake a bit but it still tastes as sweet and maybe it's less fattening without icing. Times has almost made the mirror my friend.  I no longer feel i will scare people or myself.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I have worked for Lancome for several year-and cosmetics with skin care are my expertise.   To start of, as other members here advised you, go with an inexpensive product and I am choosing for you the brand Revlon.   Always apply your foundation to a clean skin, that is important, making certain NO FACE HAIR AND FREE OF FACE FUZZ   In the morning, wash your face (make it a habit) Apply a generous amount of a moisturizer and let it set for some minutes. Then with a Kleenex, tap gently your face skin to have all left residue come  off to the Kleenex. Apply a BB Cream making certain that you have chosen the correct shade for you. Apply under the eyes a Concelear ( choose the one shade lighter from your BB cream) Set your lovely face with Powder (choose the the shade that is right for you. When applying the powder, invest to  powder brush Apply  two cots of Mascara in black, then Apply a a lip gloss of your liking.   Important to define your eyebrows. I cannot help you in that field as I have not the structure in front of me of your face. But do have a lovely shape, an arc.   At nights, do a double cleasing Take the Day Off with Cleansing Toilettes Clenase you face with cotton balls Micellar Water Apply a generous amount of Nivea Soft all over your fave   I am attaching a free face guide Guide

      Wayyyy back when I used to play, I loved picking Shooting Star.  An easy song, but I really got off on the contrast of acoustic sound and when the "fuzz pedal" kicked in.  Seagull was another fav tune from Bad Co.  After the black album, I drifted away from them until Holy Water. Joe Cocker was like Frank Zappa to me... I really really just did not get it! lol @Shay, ever play any BTO?  Not Fragile was one of the first songs I ever learned (right after I learned Smoke on the Water ).  Ahhh, good memories.
    • BorderTerrierFan
      I'm a 19 year old Female at Birth but for a very long time I've always been happier wearing male clothing and  I much prefer to shop for clothing in the mens aisle rather than the womens. I love having my hair cut short and for the first time today I went to a Male Barbers shop and got it cut how I really wanted it rather than having to opt for a Pixie cut at my local hairdressers to appease my Mum.   I hate having breasts and it's my desire to have them removed so I can have a flat chest but yet I'm not bothered about my lower half and I don't have any desire to have any facial hair.  As I'm presenting as a male to the outside world I would much rather be referred to as he/him rather than she/her and obviously this would mean possibly changing my name from a female one to a male one at some point.     Having just come out to my Mum and Dad with their support I've just ordered my first chest binder and I'm so looking forward to being able to go out feeling flatter and not having to wear a bra.   I'm not sure exactly where I fit in on the transgender spectrum but I feel like I'm a female who just wants to dress and feel masculine, so am not sure I'm classed as totally F2M.   Does anybody else share these feelings?
    • Dinaki
      Dear @jae bear, if any pain you'll experience, may be pain of happiness and joy!

      Both are such beautiful answers. I hope to be able to share your joy ... like.... forever. Shay
