Morning everyone.

I'm the only employee who chooses to work on Thursdays this summer, and as a result, Thursdays draaaggg by because there's no one to talk to and usually little to do. I still have over 5 hours left before I clock out for the week. I am getting my full time in, but I'm probably going to need several cups of coffee or caffeine to keep me awake, lol. 

That's pretty amazing that your work is so empty on a Thursday!

I work from home home if not having to visit customers, so when it's more than a day or two, I do find that it's hard to stay focused and awake.

Thursdays are our Fridays, and with it being summer, we only have a few (5) tutors on hand (i currently work at the college i attend until the end of July). I'm the idiot who decided to work on Thursdays (we set our own schedules).  However, most of our classes don't meet on Thursdays, so few students are on campus. Therefore, I'm usually stuck twiddling my thumb and end up playing on my phone or tablet. 

I would enjoy working partially from home because I'm an introvert, but I couldn't do it full time. I need to get out a few times a week. 

Just finished lunch, which included a soda, and I'll need at least one more energy drink or 2 to make it to 4 o'clock.

Two years ago today I was in recovery (at this time) after having the surgery of my life.  What a week that was.

Happy Saturday, Had a nice experience out in the market, usually a bit nervous about going out fully feminine there as all very boistrous and interactive but all very lovely, referring to me with terms like madam, sweetie and darling.

Good morning, and happy 2 year anniversary! Wow, that must have been quite the week, and a couple after that. I’m at a little over a week after having my Orchie, and this is my second day without “soreness.” Or course I’ve been extra cautious, so that plays into it, but I’m able to start enjoying the feeling of not having things in my way, 😂

ps: If you have a post on your recovery, I would love to read about it.

Congrats on your week post Orchie!  How are you feeling other the soreness going away?

Ellora remember to behave yourself.  I had some difficulty in that regards because of the demands of the farm.  Just try to take it easy and soon it will be history.  After a bit the only difficulty i had was the itching caused by healing.  Not good to be in public when there are pubic itches.:D

Sorry i looked back at the archives but they don't extend back to when i had surgery.

 

Hugs,

Oh I have been extra careful, and it's not easy when the twins always want me to pick them up or they want to do flying leaps into me, lol. They have been very good during this whole time. 

I dont think i will have too many itching issues, but the athletic supporter and extra padding can get difficult at times. 

No worries, thanks for checking!

Hope that your recovery continues to go smoothly, Ellora!

I had a busy, but fun day today. Tomorrow, I will forgo most of the coffee because I plan on resting (my disability is being annoying and causing me more pain than usual). I need a day of relaxation before starting the week all over again Monday. 

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

Good Morning! June gloom over here in the San Diego Bay area. The tea is about right, just finished my PB&J taco, and my Lady meds =). I hope everyone else has a great morning and a fabulous day!

(For those of you that do not know what "June Gloom" is, it is what comes after "May Gray." The gloom and the gray are the morning clouds that hang out at the coastline predominantly in the months of May and June. In the afternoon the clouds are pushed back and loom over the ocean, until night time, the clouds greet the sunset and wait along the coastline all over again.)

Its been gloomy here in the Northeast today.  A cup of tea is seeping now!  What kind of biscuit should I have with it?   Tomorrow will be sunny again!

Depending on the tea, I would have a better idea of the proper biscuit 😊

The sun came out for my friend in the east county, as it usually does, but not at the coast at the Del Mar Fair. That wasn’t so bad, until a bit later after the breeze kicked in and we didn’t have jackets ready. We all had a great time tho. Tomorrow will probably be cloudy on the coast again 🙄

Given the hour of the day it was Chamomile tea.  I avoid caffeine in the afternoon and evening now.  I had a few sugar wafers as the package was open.  I ended up sleeping well.

Sure, Jani. the package was open so you had to have some. LOL. Got woke up from a dead sleep at about 1 am with a hell of a heavy rain. Hitting the house like hail. may have been but didn't see any.  First day off since the 4th. Had to play real manager the last 4 days since the store manager had to play Army. A couple times I was pulling my hair out. but made it through. Realized some things I would change if it were my store.

 

Then today is the day I head to get my hair styled. Being I am still early in my transition not sure how I will get it done. May leave it up to the stylist. He is a retired drag queen and has experience with transgender people.

Good evening from here, sipping coffee after dinner, tastes great, and glad to be home after 13 days on the road down and up the west coast. Here is a pic I took from across the marina in SD and hotel complex I stayed at in the background...

Beautiful photo. In a couple of weeks, it should be sunny like that once the June gloom is gone.

 I must admit I have not had any coffee for quite some time, not that that has anything to do with the lack of my posting here. I suppose life has just been super busy that way, not really much of an excuse though. I decided I must do something to whiten my teeth so I stopped drinking coffee, at least for now, and I’m halfway through my box of crest white strips and quite liking the results ...  anyway, the weather has been absolutely crazy here, one day it’s cold the next day it’s hot, followed by a day that starts cold gets hot and finishes cold !  My banged up bad leg hates changes in the weather so it’s been brutal, however I absolutely refuse to take pain meds even though I probably should.

It’s been a bit over two weeks since top surgery, and I was pleasantly surprised to have quite literally no pain just some persistent soreness that went away after the first week. I truly wish the surgeon had told me that it would take a couple  months for the implants to settle down below the lowest part of the pectoral muscle, and that the pectoral muscle needed to relax and stretch and pretty much give up to allow the implant to rest properly where it belongs without assistance. I’ve gotten used to my routine of the elastic strap, or as I call it my “seatbelt”, that holds the girls down day and night, but I’ll be happy when gravity is all I need 🙄

 Hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy a cup of coffee as soon as I’m not paranoid about staining my teeth, I probably shouldn’t be quite so neurotic and just enjoy the caffeinated treat just as I have been since I was two years old, growing up in a Danish bloodline simply means you live on coffee, I actually think it might be  in my blood !

 I did at the very least enjoy this pastry called a Napoleon, it’s quite messy as it has layers of soft gooey stuff in between layers of crispy flaky pastry, messy or not, it was so good I wanted to lick the spilled  powdered sugar off the table, I did however refrain from such bad behavior and maintained My lady like composure..

Hugs to all,

Jackie

That is a lovely and inviting picture Jackie.  

i'll see the dental hygienist the week after next.  I always get a comment about coffee and tea.  Oh well, for coffee beauty must step back.  That napoleon on the other hand is something i would avoid.........i know one would lead to more and the sugar on the table wouldn't stand a chance.

 

Hugs,

 

Charlize

      If you have insurance, they might have options, and or your doctor, to get a referral for some type of Nutritionist that could help you. Possibly a councilor  could recommend group meetings, perhaps even a trans group that you could join. I know it helps to have a support system in line. Substitute fast food with veggies and fruit. Drink water with all of your meals, good or fast food, drink water. That helps me filling up and it's just plain healthy. Try and eat salad with your meals too, they can be rather tasty. Dont go cold turkey, ease into it, find a comfortable balance. Walk when you can, and ease into that too. Start bringing small weights with your walls after a while. Maybe find people that are willing to walk with you.  During my research of HRT and what would help me see changes, boobie growth, losing weight was one of them. That inspired me, cause I noticed the changes after i lost weight and maintained keeping weight off. The weight distribution has really been shoing this past week.  Other than eating healthy foods, going to a therapist might help you with what is driving you to eat when you are not hungry.  I wish you the best!

      I do not miss anything (yet), and I dont believe i will. I am doing what I have always wanted to do, so everything that comes with it will be gravy. I get looks, and I enjoy them. I havent been flirted with yet, at least not as far as I know. That might come later when I present more. 
    • Kirsten
      Thank you. 💛💛  
    • Kirsten
      I have yet to find anything I really miss other than the looks from cute girls. Girls are definitely not checking me out anymore. Well maybe except a lesbian but I haven’t noticed that either.  And what’s worse is that that’s been replaced with guys checking me out and flirting. It’s really really weird still for me. Like really weird. lol.

      Great topic, Dawn.  I miss both of the things listed above.  I really miss being able to carry heavy things like I once could.  My upper body strength has dwindled.  When moving things like couches, sheets of plywood, etc...I never realized how much of the lifting required me to use my chest to help balance these bulky items.  I can't have ANYTHING touch me anywhere near my chest.  It nearly sends me into orbit when I inadvertently hit my nipples.

      It’s hard, but you need to start cutting out the bad foods. Foods high in fat and sugars make you crave more food. It’s why you can sit down and eat an avocado and feel more full and more sustained than when you eat 3x as much of something like Doritos or McDs fries. Your body is being fooled.  Eat as much healthy foods as you can. Nearly 50% of your food every day should be veggies. For someone your size I’d say you should be in the 6-8cups of veggies a day.  My advice, cut out bad and replace with good. Go as fast or slow as you can handle, but create goals no matter how small they may be and stick to them. Eventually you’ll get where you want to. But it’s gonna mean work. And I also recommend a support group. It really helps. A lot. If you stay active with it at least.    Good luck.

      I really don’t think this is the whole story. There’s just too much that doesn’t add up. He’s not talking or giving a motive for the shooting. Usually killers give a motive once they are caught. She worked retail and didn’t live the lifestyle even though she had a place on a seedy street. She leaned in the passenger side window which implies a passenger. The pace of the interaction was implied as being quick, so that tells me she was killed for being a witness. People don’t usually drive up to a random woman and have a short conversation with her and inexplicably shoot her with a shotgun. Unless it’s a hit.    There’s also a sub culture in the region they don’t mention. It’s common place for people who don’t have cars to flag others down and seek rides, called hacking, basically Uber before there was Uber and definitely cheaper. That’s something the suspect would be interested in if they just had a car accident, a rental van, and needed money. It’s entirely plausible. So was the passenger actually the killer? Was it one of those bait and switch situations where the passenger just killed her and the driver was surprised it happened? He definitely wouldn’t argue with an armed man. Did they threaten the driver and/or promise them protection if they didn’t talk? Was part of the deal to take the shotgun and take the fall if the police came after the driver? I think this was a hit, to take out a witness. Which means that the first killing was probably by the same person and the rabbit hole goes way deeper into the criminal underworld.

      @Carolyn Marie thank you for sharing this true story.  So much of it describes the way I felt during puberty and at other times during my life.  it was just over a year ago that I finally figured it out and started therapy and sought help.  That's a long time to be depressed and not know why.   Willow

      So last weekend I went camping(tents, drinking, bonfire, no restrooms) I was in boy mode as I am not out yet. When natured called as is the case with mass quantities of cheap beer is involved, I found a tree, pulled it out, shook it off after, put it away and went back to fun. It got me thinking if or when I transition to a girl, it will require a little more privacy and toilet paper.(I have camped with girls) I have what I have between my legs, but male parts are so much more convenient in that regard.    It got my thinking what little thing will you miss or do you miss after transitioning? (Let's keep this on the light side, we are all aware of how society can treat us, just little things)   Dawn
