Good morning All. Coffees on.

Morning all. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I for one had a fantastic one. We went to Lincoln to see my oldest and his family. It was great seeing all four of them. but seeing the Grandkids was the best part. In the 10 weeks since we saw them last they have grown so much. My granddaughter is 13 months walking everywhere. At first she didn't know how to react to us. but eventually got better. My grandson is such a big boy. We hated to leave. Wish we lived closer.

My MacBook has been terribly slow of late.  Email loads slowly, files take their sweet time to open.   I keep the cookies and history cleared so Safari will be a little faster, despite having to re-login alot.  I need to take it in to have it cleaned up.  I used to know how to all that with Windows machines but not so with Mac's.

I appreciate the advice, will probably get a plug-in device to transfer disc files to the new Mac. 

 

Jani, I quit using Safari and downloaded a "Brave" browser, it's much faster and has built in add blocker and tracker features. According to mine I have 118+K ads and trackers blocked.

Well it’s a problem that isn’t really that bad. Just costs something to fix. So I decided that I can bypass the whole drive cloning thing by ordering a drive bay to replace the dvd drive and then I also ordered a usb dvd drive to solve replacing the other one. Then I can just use my old laptop drive in the new laptop and update it to work better for the new laptop. Then I’ll have 3 operating systems on the same laptop for a while. It also makes cloning later easier. Then I’ll be able to change main drives and do that. Then put back the original dvd drive and presto! Sounds complicated I know. It’s actually the least complicated way of getting it done in the least bit of time. So I’ll have all my previous settings on my new laptop right away. Saves me time just not money. 

 

I had my coffee earlier and I ran a lot of errands. Still have a lot to do though. I’m trying to tackle a pest problem because of the neighbor which is a major project.

 

 I’m also realizing that participation in pride this week is probably not going to happen just because of all the variables. My order of a cute hat and sweatshirt is going to be too late and I can’t even afford to get foundation in time. It is what it is. And I’ll most likely have to work on the 12th. But I can still get to the clinic today or tomorrow so there’s that.

Josie Beth, you are such a busy girl and smart about IT stuff, I am such a dope about it myself. Is a neighbor giving you a hard time?

Not really, just a slob. He doesn’t take his trash out until it is horrid and  that attracts pests. Then two of them are feeding a flea bitten cat. The guy right next door is actually letting it crawl in the screen door to eat so of course the fleas try to come over here sometimes. I’m taking measures to seal all the cracks everywhere to close out anything from coming from next door and sprayed a lot of ortho around. It’s working so far. I just don’t like all the chemicals. Luckily I don’t have to sit around it all day. I just can’t believe that there was a huge gaping hole in the wall underneath the vanity in the bathroom. I don’t care if the rental agency doesn’t like that I sealed it off, they weren’t doing anything about it. They can complain about it after I move. They probably won’t even notice though. 

 

I think I finally found a solution for my old laptop drive being stuck in fallback mode though. I just have to figure out where I can work on it and have an internet connection. It’s actually a simpler fix than I thought. Some people have suggested doing all these roundabout things that don’t work but hopefully the idea I found this morning does the trick. My order from amazon should arrive this weekend with enough time to get it working right. Then I’ll finally be able to do some graphic design and get some merch worked on. That seems to be the only way I’ll make more money for moving and not be so dependent on temporary work.

You'll probably be happier when you can afford to move. I have a redneck neighbor across the street from me with no sense of pride of ownership. Junk out in front we have to look at 24/7. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts, give us some updates as you proceed ahead with things.

Debra Michelle - Hug!

So sorry you went through that and that you face still more upcoming stress from possibly giving testimony!

Hang in there. Courage, lady!

And of course, a morning coffee mug lifted in a toast to your bravery in dealing with the assault.

Feel better soon.

I always seem to be having computer issues. I've build a couple of PCs before and just finished with a Dell r710 which I love. I just love Dell components as they are typically very high quality and easy to replace.

Today having a coffee before heading off to the office. Overcast and chilly here now. Have my Therapist appointment this afternoon which is something I always look forward too.

Hope everyone has an amazing day.

Samantha

Debra it was a nasty experience, soon you and the other women can put it in your rear view mirrors and get on with your lives while your assailant spends his coming years fearful of being brutalized in the prison system, it would be fitting!

 

Have a great day Samantha!

Coffee this morning on a dreary, overcast day.

But sunshine predicted for the day, so I'm hoping to get some photos of the fall colors while "at peak" this year. Had a brief afternoon bout of light and shot a few frames yesterday, but haven't looked them over yet because I'm still working on a drawing.

I've turned out to be a busy little beaver here lately!

Hugs to all!

Coffee in my mug, wind howling around outside, we're predicted to have a Nor'easter.

Should be an interesting day.

Good Friday evening.  We took our boat on a shakedown cruse last week.  Boy did we shake it down.  The tired old engine had enough and died about a third of the way home.  I got towed another third only to find out the engine couldn't be repaired.  we talked about what to do and did we want to put more money into it or scrap it.  Decided to keep it so we are converting it from and inboard engine to outboard.  while that isn't ideal, it is a lessor cost solution.  I finally got it back home today, 5 days later than the plan.  I am going away for the rest of October so I'll be getting home with a lot of work ahead of me.  Any idea of an extended trip early next year is out.

Hi Willow, fairly new here. It's never fun when old equipment puts a crimp in your plans and pocketbook like that. Seems like you have a can-do attitude about how to get it handled, hats off to you Miss!

Sorry to hear this Willow.  But at least you had a back up plan, despite its desirability.  Enjoy the rest of the month.

      I agree with ShawnaLeigh, you should see a gender therapist to help you figure things out. I do recommend a gender therapist, as I've been seeing a regular therapist for several years, but still have many open questions.  Its a question of focus, rather than competence....
    • MaryMary
      You know what's funny? I have so much dysphoria that I feel I look ugly. So probably I could say the same thing if you share an image.
    • ShawnaLeigh
      So I had this conversation with my therapist about this question and told him it bothers me considering my given name as a Dead Name.  A name that represents who I was practically my entire life and the persona of my life's experience and knowledge.  I feel like says its my Dead Name signifies I am killing that part of myself off. To me anyways.  A part I still like to some degree.  A part I need to help the women inside bloom and grow and be strong when times are tough and believe me times are tough for me lately. I prefer to call my male persona name a Birth Name.  Simply that's what it is.  A name given to me at birth by my parents. Plus there is no killing. LOL   I love to fact I get to choose my own female name.  Anything I want.   However I made a significant observation the other day. I have been signing my name as Shawna my whole life.  Signing anything legal or checks or whatever.  I always signed my name first name, middle initial, last name that all bunched together in a scribing mess.  However Shawn A. is what you would see before it turned into a scribe towards my last name.  LOL Like I have been telling myself my whole life who I am inside. Or I just reading into it to much.  LOL

      This is great news.  It seems given enough time most people will come around or at least understand.  
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I'm transitioning MTF and I still love to hunt, fish, icefish, go camping, get muddy on my ATV, shooting archery and guns.    So yes.  If you still like female typical interests you can be a guy. Why not? JMO
    • lauraincolumbia
      Congrats Astrid!   Fenway?  I used to know a girl that worked at Fenway.  Unfortunately, she passed away, but I never heard from what.
    • ShawnaLeigh
      Well I'm still in my confusion/discovery part of myself so I am hesitant to lay a label on anyone.  I can see you feel a lot like I do/did in my earlier years.  Born male and being attracted to females was a big thing for me because I felt female inside but played my male role my entire life.   I'm going toward transitioning to female just now at age 52, in the early stages still, though I am still only attracted to women even though I am becoming one myself. Having a strong sexual connection to your confusion is not uncommon.  It is a sexual change you desire it sounds like.  Going from one sex to the other is a sexual change and it is not unreasonable to feel sexual stimulation when contemplating it or acting on it.  JMO Saying that you are bisexual reinforces this to me. All I can suggest is what I was told and that is to try and see a gender therapist and see what he/she says.  I can tell you it was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I have meaning and I am valid.  Not broken or need to be fixed.

      First congratulations on the doctor change and getting T.  I can see you are excited.     As to your spouse, he loves you and the life you have together and doesn't want it to end but he's afraid.  The best thing now it to continue talking.  I think it is harder for men to come to terms with this as society is so masculine-centric.  I don't know what the answer is other than it will work out one way or another.  Possibly if you lived in a different state (or locality) that was more open and accepting things would be different.  Keep talking.

      Hello Astrid.  I'm glad to see you found Fenway to be a good resource.  I also go there.  It seems you have a good plan laid out.  The only negative I had with Spiro was having to urinate frequently but the body adjusts and soon things are bak to somewhat normal.  I also started with low dose patches as I wanted to see how it was effected by my other meds.  I found no issue at all.  From those I've spoken with who stayed on lose dose long term, its done what they wanted and calmed the noise in their heads.  I think this may be good for you.  Jani
