Good news to see that things are going well (except for the sloppy commute) for people.

It's time for me to hit the drawing again, but wanted to check in to say that after a year of meeting with my gender therapist (the delay was mine, not the VA or therapist), I am being referred for the start of HRT, presuming my blood workup shows me healthy enough. I am so looking forward to becoming myself.

I've been smiling all the way back from the therapy session.

This is also great news.  I know how wonderful I felt being put on HRT.  Like a huge start that finally was “starting”.  Lol

(you know what I mean.  Lol)

This is fantastic news!   I am so happy for you two.  Having trans employees is the icing on the cake too.  It must of been such a relief for them to have a boss like you.  
Good luck with your business!

Yes,it was a huge relief for them.The one that is starting her transition next month,knows she is not alone and I will be helping her out.I told her my story and hers is like mine.Found out she has support from her parents and older brother which is good to hear.Her family does want to meet me and going to next week

So far this has been a great day. So was able to get out dressed without the blabber mouth seeing. Did take the truck went the back way to Cheyenne.

 

So went and got my blood taken. Then up to the eye DR. Appointment is for 2pm not 10 my therapist is at 11. So went for breakfast. Went to Taco Johns. The gal at the counter thought she made a mistake and called me sir, not ma'am. She apologized 3 times. It was great. 

 

To my 1st appointment. After telling my therapist about what happened. She said that if she saw me on the street. She would think I was actually female. Which made me feel great. I had borrowed my wife's Purple knit sweater, Jeans, a padded bra. some cute brown booties.  After I had time to kill before my eye appointment.

 

I wound up going to the mall. wasn't nervous at all. Just walked along with my head held high. Say the cutest blue merle pomski puppy. I wanted to bring her home so bad. If she would have been a sheltie she just may have been in my coat coming home. I want to get a Shetland Sheepdog so bad. I compromised and picked up a Sheltie calander.  Got some cute frames for my new glasses.

 

All in all a great day. Changed into something more comfortable once I got home.

Well thought today was going to be a better day than it turned out. Work went fine,even getting the front room freight put away before I opened the the door. took about 20 min to do. Good thing Sat is a light freight day. However the backroom freight was still in the cart when I left. The downer I looked into trading my 99 Explorer on a 06 Wrangler.  Didn't have enough to put down. God I hate car dealers.   

 

Debra, glad it worked out for you at the funeral. May she rest in peace.

Busy day today. Went to my wife’s MS Christmas luncheon, did some grocery shopping and just finished baking several dozen cookies. Made triple chocolate Nutella stuffed cookie with macadamia nuts. Tomorrow I make some Turtle cookies. It’s for a baking competition at work on Monday. I haven’t baked in quite some time. Forgot how

much I enjoy it. I hope everyone had a good day. *hugs*

Good morning from inside the fog! No, really! It looks like the coast of Maine out there, thick fog outside. But I've got my coffee mug filled, and my warm things on, so it's good.

Hugsee and wishes for a wonderful day to everyone!

I'm up really early (for me anyways..6am) enjoying a nice big cup of java.  Yesterday afternoon, my wife & I spent 4 hours at a book lecture/lunch in at a church in downtown Seattle.  It was amazing.  The entire experience...the people I met attending the event and the content that unfolded during it and the author himself (Austen Hartley) was incredible.  He lectured on all things "Trans and what it means in relationship to today's church".  It was enlightening to say the least.  He covered a lot of the material in his 2018 book "Transforming".  I had not read it yet maybe some of you have.  Ironically, my new church up where I live is going to be having a 7 week study on this very book in Jan and Feb..  I'm really excited about that now.  I just wish the author could be there too but that isn't likely going to happen...wishful thinking on my part.  My wife & I already ordered our books through our church but we got a signed one while there.

 

I'm up early to attend a one hour workshop he facilitating that's happening before a service at that same church I had attended yesterday.  It was that good. The material he's going to cover this morning introduces newer scientific details not covered yesterday.  I'm excited.

 

Have a great day everyone!

Got to sleep in today. 6am.  Lol

We had my daughter and her boyfriend over last evening for a small turkey dinner as we had nothing over the holidays with them.  Watched a couple movies too. They left around 11pm.  
This morning I am making turkey soup.  I do so every year with the bones and scraps this time of year.  I love it.  
My coffee is long gone.  So is breakfast.  I’m

having an easy day so I hope everyone else does too!❤️

Waiting to hear from the vet about my three-legged cat today. We found a lump on his remaining rear leg while cuddling Friday night. The vet says it has to go. Fortunately, it doesn't appear to be attached to much of anything so it should be an easy surgery and a quick recovery.

Happy thoughts for the little guy. He's all alone at the clinic right now and probably frightened.

 

Hugs!

Oh, poor kitty.

Although I've seen a few cats that had suffered traumatic injuries that just carried on with their lives afterwards. Kind of inspiring.

I just got a call from Susan, he's on his way home. The mass was ugly though, it's going to Michigan State to get tested. Hopefully the vet got it all.

He's home in the recovery crate. He's not super happy about it, but I can't really blame him. Hopefully we can take the cone off in a couple of days.

Well the coffee shop was really nice today. It was a little rushed but fun talking to some people who actually wanted to hang out and just talk. There was a nice guy at the counter who was our barista and his husband is trying to buy a building nearby for some kind of reason that I didn’t catch but my coffee was delicious. 
 

We made plans to hang out north of town soon and have a home cooked meal. I guess once the ladies I met get a cousin settled in. It was refreshing to talk in a relaxed setting about paranormal things and astrology for a change instead of all the issues that have been going on. And it’s always good to make new friends who know what it’s like to be where I am.

Coffee! Hurray!

I couldn't sleep for some reason, so got up, got coffee going and just finished that beloved first cup.

Wish I could say I wasn't feeling stressed about things with the holidays coming, but I am. Terribly stressed. Partly because we will be entertaining quite a bit which includes the obnoxious husband of my niece who feels the need to grab onto me a lot. If this keeps up its going to lead to a very ugly situation.

Why do some people feel the need to act like 6 year olds all their lives?

      Thank you, Charlize. One of the last things my wife said to me before I left was "Don't be to proud to ask for help if you need it." I'm glad I did.

      Good Morning, World! I had the night off from work yesterday. I'm not used to sleeping at night but I did. Sitting here in front of my laptop computer with a qup-a-quafee in my hand. I love my Mr. Coffee maker. He is faithful. And always makes me feel satisfied. Even though he can be a little bit of a drip sometimes. What to do today? I know I have to work tonight. I don't have to be there til 10pm but I usually show up 2 hrs earlier. I don't like being late for anything. It eliminates the "Hurry up! You're Late!" anxiety form the equation. Why stress yourself if you don't have to. Besides it allows me the opportunity visit with my patients. I work on a rehabilitation unit. A few months ago I had patient who's grandson was trans MTF. She often spent the night sleeping in the chair in her . grandma's room. They were very close. The grandma was very supportive of her granddaughter. She was a cool 1960's hipster granny. I got the feeling that the granddaughter was living with the grandma because her family wasn't accepting of her desire to transition. She was very cute, shy and slender with long brown hair that she deliberately seemed to drape over half of her face. Her face lit up like a light bulb when I h The granddaughter was worried about losing her grandma. I reassured her that her grandma was going to be OK. Her broken hip will mend and she will be able to take her home in a few days. I love my job. It is part of who I am. My payroll direct deposit doesn't go in til tonight.   I did some rollerblading on Saturday for about two hours. It was a good work out.  I was a little concerned that the extra weight that I'm carrying would cause me to be off balance and fall. But I did quite well. I've been rather lazy all winter. I didn't go to the ice skating rink like I usually do. I'm actually pretty darn good on the ice.(It helps that I was raised in upstate New York on a farm with a pond that iced over in the winter.)  Now I've got to work the flab off of my thighs and butt. Fat distribution is a pain in the ass!  I've got to stop procrastinating on my artwork. Every time I have a weekend off I tell myself that I'm going to work on finishing the first issue of my comic book "The Specials". It's been quite a while since the last time I submitted anything new to DriveThruComics.com I put up the teaser issue of the comic but nothing more. I've had writer's block before. I don't want to go through that again. I've got 2 weeks of vacation time coming up. Maybe that would be a good chance to get to work on it? I noticed that there is a section on this forum for poetry. It's any to a good a place as churn my creative juices.   I'll catch a couple of hours sleep this afternoon so I'll be fresh for work tonight. Ya'll have a wonderful day!   Be safe. Be smart.

      I'm so glad you stayed with us and have shared your experience.  Life throws things at us that seem impossible but a bit of help and time gets us through.   Going to the hospital was the right move!   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi, Trisha.  Welcome.   I am happy for you that your partner is supportive.  I was a nervous wreck when I told my wife, but she said, "Whatever you decide to do, I will support you."  That kind of support is beautiful to receive.   Regards, Kathy

      She was wanting me in once per week to get the other issues ironed out before heading into real conditioning.  I do have a ton of physical exercises and stretches I have to do and a few voice training techniques to do while driving.

      I have learned never to rub your tummy while in the maternity clothing section of a department store. Especially if you have a bit of tummy. And are not wearing overly wise clothing.   So there I was, shaped wrong, apparently, wearing a house dress, over my long skirt, looking stupidly maternal (I was not aware of that at the time), and absent mindedly rubbing my tummy. "Is this your first?" a passing woman commented. My brain didn't get it fast enough, and as I have a son,  I responded, "no." 2 minutes later, my brain kicked in (the woman had moved on), 'you idiot, that was NOT the correct answer'.   And I don't always learn the first time. Same outfit (some of us never learn), grocery store, reaching for something almost out of my reach. "here, let me get that for you dear, you shouldn't be doing that in your condition." Blind sided, I accepted the item, didn't know what to say, and the nice man moved on.   Groan

      Once a month isn't a terrible pace. It's not super quick, but I bet there's plenty of homework between lessons with things you can work on. I was only doing two lessons a month and that kept me PLENTY busy most of the time.   Hugs!
