Happy Valentine's Day.  I hear its Friend's Day in some places now.   Its sunny but cold here today so we get what we get.  Enjoy the day.

 

Wow @KathyLauren that's a lot of kitty litter!  I have a sloping driveway and the road is close to 200 feet from where my bins are so if its snowy or rainy I just wait a week.  

 

@Cyndee I'm glad to read the vertigo isn't an issue today.  It can be nasty.

Valentine's day?  Well, that's a surprise to both of us.  We've had so much going on that neither had time to think about it.  Today's much the same, I'm afraid.  Oh well, such is life.

Hopefully, it will be a good day for one & all.

Good morning all, this fine Valentine's day I am taking my chances with this girl I like, wish me luck. This morning I gave her a flower and stuffed animal and she loved it. I am finding my courage to ask her out!

Much the same here. Between my wife's doctoral thesis and her mother having a stroke, there hasn't been enough time to catch our breath, let alone contemplate a romantic holiday.  My wife told me her present was to only work part of the day, so I would not to wrangle the kids all day.  I said that would conflict with my gift - to watch the kids all day so she could work on her thesis!

 

Such is life, indeed...

@MetaLicious. a Gift of the Magi moment to be sure. Honestly, Susan's gift to me was to head up north to look after her dad for a bit. I'm taking advantage of it by napping.

 

@Debra Michelle, I just used our air-fryer last night to re-heat some fried chicken. I've been on the "healthy food" trail for two years though. We're gluten free, healthy food, high protein, low carbs, etc... There are a lot more salads and yogurt in my diet than there used to be. That's probably not a bad thing. Still, don't forget to have unhealthy food now and then. Like my friend Ray pointed out, if you let your cravings go too long, you'll really overdo when you get a chance to satisfy them.

Best of luck!

 

Hugs!

I must remember that. I have a cannister of chocolate malted mix that I've been trying to avoid being tempted by, just because it has a high glycemic index.  A little won't be as bad for me as breaking down in a fit of overindulgent gluttony!  Maybe if I have some protein first, so the sugar doesn't hit me so hard...  I have been such a good girl - dropped 15 pounds over the last year, and I'm on track to lose another five.  I swear, someday I will have a waist and not a belly!

happy Valentine's Day everyone

 

Had a good day so far.  I made my wife a card this year.  crayons and a personal note.  She obviously appreciated it.

 

We did some shopping today, mostly at Lowes Home Improvements.  We are remodeling the bathroom and needed some things.

 

Our next stop was a new fabric store that had opened up.  On the way there she talked about making me a dress.  Now that's a good day in my book.

 

I hope everyone else has had as good a day.

I had a good day.Two new employees I hired been working out great for me.I was in the Snap On tool truck with one of them,told the dealer we deal with that he owed a little bit money and I was glad he was being honest.He owed $130.00 and paid that off.Told me that it is better to tell the truth and not lie about it.Not too happy with my husband right now,did get intimate with an ex girlfriend of mine one time in November.I was not in a good mood about it at all at first.Good thing is he does want to work things out,wants to stay with me and never did this to me before.I am willing to work things out with him,both admit our sex life has been boring lately.

Enjoy the Theatre tonight Kathy, does not sound like work at all, but a labor of love, brrrr stay warm.

 

Well, it was interesting tonight, but not in a good way.  One of the lead actors collapsed on stage.  She was awake before she got into the ambulance, but it sounds like something serious.

I had a nice cup of tea with breakfast this morning.

 

The actor who collapsed on stage last night was just dehydrated.  Whew, nothing serious!  The show will go on tonight.

Good news Kathy :) Enjoy the show tonight ! Just sipping coffee this morning reading and posting on the Internet, I am an early riser. It's raining here again, dark and wet, although I mowed our lawn yesterday (seasons first), we had some nice sunshine yesterday. 

 

Have a nice weekend !

That's good news Kathy.  Thankfully it wasn't something serious. 

 

It was 11 when I got up and it won't go beyond the mid 20's today.  It is bright and sunny though!   That seems awfully early to have to mow your lawn Cyndee.  I guess my impression of the PacWest area is wrong.

 

Have a great day everyone!

Good morning, everyone! Had my first cup of coffee, then went out to buy a pound of the good stuff so I can make my wife a decent post-Valentine's Day/pre-birthday cup.  Today we are supposed to get temps a couple degrees above freezing!  That will be so welcome after the frigid spell we have gone through lately.

Good Morning all, I’m drinking black tea this morning.  I’m all coffee’d out after last night.  My wife and I went crazy and went bar hoping all night. Of course, I don’t drink so I’m one of the designated drivers and was drinking coffee all night long.  Too much coffee!  Is that possible?  YES!
 

It was an interesting evening to say the least.  There was a bunch or my close very affirming cis neighbors mixed in with a few trans friends out on the town with us.  We did the whole karaoke thing and it was a blast.  You can never predict how these things might go but it was great.  My wife is a bit under the weather due to having one too many Long Island ice teas but I’m pampering her this morning.  Hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s Day.♥️

-15*F at 7am and my wife and Had plans to go to breakfast and then a morning and afternoon shopping in West Lebanon NH.
We scored so big it was unbelievable.  I got $255 worth of clothing at Kohl’s for like $45.  My wife killed it at $120 worth for $4.95.  She is a master.  Lol

Cute boots and summer sneakers, sweaters, jackets and T’s.   The list goes on and on.  We even had to share the dressing rooms so we could give advice or opinions.  She actually listens to me now.  Huh.  Just a wonderful day of shopping!!!
Great girly day for me.  I’m beaming still.

I'm guessing the avatar is from yesterday's shoot? Nice! I was going to comment earlier but it hurts to sit in my computer chair. I'm still working out which sitting device leaves me in less misery. Right now it seems to be the couch. I'm going to have to charge my laptop.

 

That is easily my favorite way to shop. Susan and I share a changing room and just have some fun. Though she listened to me before I came out too. I've always had good color sense.

In any case, I'm so glad you got to experience that! It's magic!

 

Hugs!

Yes it is from yesterday’s pampering makeover.  
I posted a couple pics.  
Sorry to hear your still so uncomfortable with pain.  
Like anything else.  One day at a time.

Wow! That is an impressive haul! My whole family went clothes shopping also, and I found a handbag that I liked. I've been needing one badly since none of my new pants have functional pockets. I also scored a new pair of boots - I literally have more shoes now than I have ever had in my life!  How did this happen so fast?

 

I am walking on sunshine, because today is the first time I have been called ma'am since I began my journey.  I find it amazing that something so small can really make one's day.

Shawna, good looking picture.

 

Jackie, Is the pain from sitting on your surgery area. May want to try sitting on one of those neck pillows. The kind shaped like a horseshoe. I used one when I severely bruised my tailbone. While I had the open part to the back you may want it towards the front.

Great idea! I will get on that right away.  It's not like I am going back to sleep - infants make sleeping in so unlikely...

 

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen!

      Pre Diabetic is a range on your Hb a1c blood test, your range can go back to  Pre from full blown diabetes if your diet and meds are being taken care of properly.  Congratulations on getting your life in shape.  It's a good thing.  What with cooking for myself these days I am probably going to do better there myself.
    • Zeda
      Well, h*ck, it seems like you are on the right path; congrats! :0
    • Zeda
      Contrary to what some have said, I definitely think you can be cis and have dysphoria; there are many reasons why one might have it other than being transgender, including the fact that gender expression is just plain wonky from culture to culture (and even subcultures and communities).   That being said, it is a lot more common for trans people people I'll give you three anecdotes: My cousin came out as a (trans) boy to supportive parents a few years ago with a similar story to yours, but has since come to the conclusion that she (her pfp) is actually a butch lesbian-- she doesn't want to be a boy, but enjoys the "masculinity" (I put that in quotes because a butch friend once informed me that it was a different kind of masculinity?) My spouse had a lot of gender dysphoria as a kid and into adulthood, but enjoyed some "traditionally feminine" things like makeup. They have since come to the conclusion that they are non-binary and genderfluid. (For them, gender is like an expressive art form. They don't wear makeup to hide, they wear makeup as a way of expression.) For me, I do go through phases of gender dysphoria, sometimes it is okay, sometimes it is bad. Sometimes I just really want to be feminine, sometimes it is fun to be masc. Most of the time, I just don't care about gender; it's overrated (until it's not). I kept a diary, tracked my patterns over the course of a year, and decided that I definitely need to go on hormones even if I occasionally don't mind my body. I came to the conclusion that I am genderqueer.   All three of us had dysphoria. In my cousin's case, she is cis, in mine and my spouse's case, we are trans, and I'm the only one doing medical transition.

      Congratulations!  Telling family is one of the hardest steps to take, and you've done it!  "On your side" is a very good start.   Good luck talking to the gender therapist tomorrow.   Kathy
    • ThrowAwayName
      Well step 2 was taken   I told my dad and my sister.  They were both very supportive.  Not crazy supportive... They need some time to digest, but they're on my side.   I have a call with a gender therapist tomorrow.

      Copy places or Office Depot, etc. Take the file on a stick or disc and they'll print it. I'm very happy for you. And a bit jealous over my having to continue waiting. But I'm happy for you still. You got this gal! TA
    • BrandiBri
      Yes especially at first it's a real rollercoaster ride! Between the highs and lows, going from being ecstatic one minute and crying uncontrollably the next I found that every emotion that I felt just added to the affirmation that I was on my way to being the woman I was meant to be. It's a wild and fun ride so hang on tight!
    • TammyAnne
      Congratulations KathyLauren! Congratulations Willow! I could do with a narrower waist, I'm built like a barrel! Someday things will get back to normal and I can commence HRT. Soon, please, soon!?! TA

      @Susan R Thank you so much for your advice! I have always been irregular, but when I was 14 I did have anorexia which caused me to not have a period for an entire year. I am now at a healthy weight, and my doctor is not worried about the irregularity especially since my mom and older sister were both irregular for a long time. I did download clue and will be monitoring whether they seem related. It seems like a great app!

      I would like to comment on this subject. I think for me it’s more how I feel. I own both female and make clothes. I use to have mini skirts and dresses but I had to sell them because money got tight. I had a wig but I got rid of it because it was to hot on my head and made me itch plus it wasn’t convincing me I was a woman. I sold my dresses to. I’m down to panties and nightgowns now. I can choose my undergarment on how I feel that day. My men’s clothes are unisex so it doesn’t matter. I’ve bought men’s bright clothes to bring out my feminine side. I can also choose how I want to present inner self. Sometimes I will shave my legs and other times I won’t. My personality though is more of a woman’s. I’m a writer, journal, soft spoken, very emotional, love romance, and love to dress cute regardless of its men’s or women’s I am always put together. I thought I was a trans man but I’ve begun to see in my journey that I just have female traits. So am I a cross dresser? I will never label myself because labels mean you belong to a group. I am me and if I am truly free that means I can be a woman or man. When someone or myself needs a little love that is when Tessa comes out and when I need to think logical about something I use my woman’s intuition. If I need to be strong and brave my manly side comes out that is not to say woman aren’t strong and brave but in my case that’s when my male side shows up. I do think I primarily live in my woman brain though. If this has made sense to you or helped you in anyway please comment.    love to all    Tessa 👩‍🦰

      I tried to talk to my mom a little but she just makes me feel like the way I feel isn't correct like I'm wrong in some way for feeling this. I might try and talk to my aunt though.
    • Chloé Rei
      She finally got back with me I got my spironolactone. The only bad news is I'm pre diabetic. Which worries me, because she knows I'm diabetic according to me telling her, my health records and the metformin I take. Oh well no more fruits I guess. Also I was low in Vitamin D. I used to drink close to a gallon of milk i day, but I gave up everything but water when i quit drinking pop. All I know is I'm happy again. Which is extremely rare. So I need to savor the moment, before it leaves. Big hugs and kisses to everyone who comes to my aid when I think the sky is falling.

      Hormone blockers/testosterone is really the only way, or you could just be in constant stress like me. You have to be patient, these things take time. It is possible that she wasn't trying to lie to you, many parents suggest the same thing while being unaware of the hormones in birth control. I usually just try to wish the testosterone to appear, maybe if I just flex enough it will be beckoned into my systems.

      Wow, great news...very happy for you @KathyLauren!
