Good morning All. Coffees on.

Recommended Posts

Morning all, back to the daily grind. for now, closing the next three days. next weeks schedule isn't put up yet.

 

Kind of looking forward to the interview tomorrow. But I'm not gonna lie, the thought of leaving my family scares the crap out of me. I know it is my best interest. as I know I cannot be who I need to be living here. There is now way in heck I can live here and not be with my wife. Then there is leaving my sons. I still haven't had any true conversations with my oldest in 3 months.

 

Hugs to all my friends.

It's terribly hot today here in Georgia.I had to go to pick up some of my medication and trust you me, I was melting. The face mask was making my glasses fogged up, I could hardly see (poor me), sweat galore all over my face and my bras. All my no make up makeup melted and I looked at the car's window to see that my lipstick was all smeared with the mask.

So ladies, do not wear a lipstick (yes mine was also red) with a mask, not a good look if you sweat.

 

I am back home now, imprisoned in my room and enjoying my cup of tea while I read your posts.

Good afternoon everyone 

 

today has been a relaxing busy day.  After coffee I met with a good friend and made arrangements to see him again this afternoon and he is going to help me tomorrow morning.  I am going to see about moving my boat to a less expensive marina. He manages both of them.  The upside to the one I’m leaving is I can walk to it.  Downside it on the high end of the cost and it’s right on the ICW so there is a lot of current and a lot of rough wakes.  Upside of the new one is the cost and it’s not directly on the ICW so no current and no wakes.  The down side is the entrance is shallow and I could easily run aground.  Tomorrow morning is a check to ensure I can get in and therefore out by watching the tides.  My boat has a deep keel and needs just under 6 feet of water.  My remaining alternative is to just anchor in the waterway. Up side, no cost, downside wakes and getting to and from the boat.  Oh well.  No one ever said boat ownership was free.

It is a big day for me. Going into the city in about 10 minutes.  I will be meeting with an image consultant.  Then early this afternoon will be seeing a new psychiatrist for the first time so I can start arranging for my bottom surgery hopefully sometime next year.

Try washing your glasses gently with some dish soap. This leaves a clear film that prevents the fogging from occurring.

I've had a good day, Carrie.  I just finished writing about it in my blog.  How about you?  It's after 11 here on the U.S. Pacific coast; almost time for bed.  Contemplating one more toke and a half a cigg before bed.  I'm trying to wean off the ciggs for good.  You would think if a person only smokes 5 a day, might as well quit, eh?  Not that easy; they're my friend when I need a break.  I'm pretty resolved on it now though.  Don't want to smoke and take E together.  I'm giving myself until my B-day.

Glad you had a good day!   I know how hard it is to stop I have smoked since primary school.  You can smoke on the medication but it is not recommended though I always have.  My doctor told me at the beginning to had half an aspirin if I was going to smoke because it would help to stop the blood from thickening too much.

I saw my psychiatrist for the first time to day and he told me I would not be seeing him again. 

While that may sound bad it was wonderful.  He wrote me a letter of support form SRS surgery.  He said many of the doctors in Thailand know him so it is a great step.  LOL I just need to find a doctor now! 🙂 🙂

With lots of love

Carrie

I went into the city today this picture is of my in front of the Queen Victoria Building which is in the centre of the city and is very old as you might guess from the picture.  This was just before I met with my image consultant which went terribly well. 🙂

The other picture is of my at my local chess club.

Carrie, sounds like your trip was a good one.

 

Willow, I hope that the new marina works out well for you and your boat.

 

Tori, At 5 a day is it really worth it? When my wife quit she went cold turkey. She was about a pack a day. One day she just told me to hide her cigarettes. it has been over 30yrs. 

Well there is a slight change of plans for this weekend. Instead of my wife going to pick up my grandsons, my middle son is going to bring them here. (We think he wants to get out of the heat a little) mid 90s there low-mid 80s here. Which is good as I want to talk to him about my possible move.

Hi, the new marina is a little tricky to get up the creek but as long as you watch the depth, it will work just fine.

If you run aground, at least you're not up the creek! 😄

That's how I did it on my 3rd try. Tried gum and patches first. It was not easy, but almost 20 years smoke free now.

 

Hope all of you in the USA have a wonderful Independence Day!

      How many times have I been in my knees, begging God to fix me and everything??  Begging.   Five hundred?   How many times have I cursed God, thrown vile swear words at Jesus, God, whoever for not fixing me and the world?,( in my timing and in ways that I could see it) Fifty?   How many times have I asked the name of Jesus, God, and angels to save me and keep my eternal soul? Five?   I love angels and they love me! Sometimes they show this love by interfering.   Do I believe? I say yes, but I must try to do so at times.   Praise the Lord for making me a girl that is becoming a woman!!

      @Susan R pain levels are very stable. I have been getting these ‘jolts’ Of my nerves waking back up, those have been interesting.  Earlier this afternoon I was experiencing a pretty satisfying tingle and that actually turned out to be the packing trying to come out. It has been the weirdest pain yet .   I can’t wait to experience the new exciting sensations to learn how my body is recovering. I do know that I’ve been luck with almost minimal swelling and only bruising noted to my ‘taint’ area. Currently, just laying in the hotel bed catching up on 90 Day Fiancé with my best friend. Debating a nice Benadryl and Tylenol cocktail later for sleep!  Any questions you can think of, I don’t mind trying to answer based off of my personal experiences! Kylie
    • Susan R
      Good to hear Kylie. Have the pain levels stabilized? Are there any instances where you think, Oh what was that?   I appreciate these updates very much.   My Best, Susan R🌷
    • DeeDee
      I love this thread, but found it harder to answer than I thought Shay. Possibly because over the years my ex made me choose between my passions and her, and I always chose her. 😨   My biggest passion first and foremost is for my kids and family. 💖 My children are amazing and I love them to bits. I also have 4 sisters fairly close in age and regularly think we are unknowingly starring in some unscripted black comedy due to the almost constant drama in our lives.   Outside of that my position as a Christian minister and the privilege that my faith enables me to help others through some of the best and worst times of their lives.(This is very personal to me, but happy to chat privately if folks are curious about it)   D&D - getting together in person or online and being part of a creative story where almost anything can and will happen. So much fun!   Ultimate frisbee - though I haven't played in over a decade I still deeply love the sport and throwing a disc around with my friends. I never go anywhere without a disc in the car, just in case...   Swimming - Whether it's in the sea, a river, or a loch I cannot wait to get wet once I discover somewhere with open water. It may be cold when you dive in, but once you're acclimatised nothing beats it for me and I always feel amazing afterwards.   At the bottom I would actually place my most common hobbies: gaming, reading and binge watching films, TV and YT Series - I do them for escape and some introverted social connection but am not really passionate about them specifically but I certainly wouldn't want my life without them.    
    •  Kylie
      Thanks all! Been a pretty decent day. Packing decided it wants to start coming out. So a little extra reinforcement and all is well. I think my surgical team gets a kick out of my concerns, all have been benign.    Going to enjoy a good meal tonight and sleep up for tomorrow. Pretty exhausted today!    ❤️

      @Tori M did you see the guy and his wife on CBS Sunday Morning who photographs and paints birds. You are probably familiar with him. I appreciate your passion. And love the photo you posted.
    • Tori M
      I think some of you already know my fascination with nature, but my main passion now is birds.  Not just feeding or watching them, but "chasing" them and, most interesting, learning as much as I can about their lives.  This started in 2014 and at one point I was spending almost every waking moment watching, reading or chasing them.  Chasing means traveling miles and hours to catch sight of a rarity or exploring environs different than our own neighborhood to find different species.  Lately, I am less obsessed and haven't traveled as much but it's not unusual for me to load up the car with binoculars, scopes and cameras and spend the whole day driving around looking for great sightings. In the east, birding is largely a summer sport but to my total surprise, here on the west coast it's a year-round venture.  Yes, the birds fly south, but there's a whole different batch that summer in Canada and the Arctic that also fly south.... to here!  So, in the summertime, birding is about migrating songbirds, but in the winter there are millions of waterfowl and sparrows here.  It's a funtastic hobby and I'm always [too] eager to answer questions and educate, lol.  I'm not an expert but I've crammed a lot of learning into a few short years.   Sandhill crane w/cygnet (not my photo) Sandhill cranes have been around for at least 2.5 million years

      If my Chautauqua Series is able to?start up again after Clovis there is a girl who plans to do a program on the American home appliances from the 1950s 1960s and 1970s. For those not familiar?with Chautauquas they are first person living history where the presenter is usually a well known person and you learn so much more about that person. This girl would be a generic housewife. We have had usually 2 a month every month for 14 years until covid came. We do it as a donation basis and have musicians open with period music. We have a wide range of people from George Washington to robin Williams Tecumseh to sacagawea. Jesse James to rosemary Clooney carry nation to general Dwight eisenhower Beethoven to solar schlindler Laura singles wilder to Walt Whitman. Sorry I miss these shows they are fun and enjoyable.

      I find that an unusual but very intriguing hobby!  The first time I heard of it was a boy guesting on a TV talk show (was it Ellen?  Leno??).  They're interesting machines that transformed the American home and housework.  I once sold Rainbows and got to see one of the very early models.... all steel and weighed a TON.  No more nerdy than my fascination with bridges, lol❣️

      Not true, the Trump family has been doing pretty well propping up failing properties with government handouts.   There were also some choice short-term gains for billionaires and the stockholders of huge corporations (i.e. campaign contributors).   The rest of us are kind of boned though.   Hugs!
