    Here's some brief updates -Been in my new place for a month.  It's been working out fine, even though I have to get used to having a roommate again.  It's nice to be able to park right in front of where I live rather than blocks away.I go to Detroit next week to chair a panel at THE premier labor history conference.  My school is paying for it through their Faculty Development Fund.  Plus, I'll get to hang out with Karen Brad, something we haven't done in almost four years.I finally received copies of my book.  Look for an announcement about that soon.Me and Josie are doing just fine.  She really helped me out when I needed it.Getting new book proposals out there.  I hope to sign some contracts soon.I still don't have internet at my new place, so I get here when I can.The ex-wfe is being a bitch again.Mere

    I still don't have my internet access at home sorted out yet!  Anyhow, here are some quickies (so to speak):I am pretty much fully out at work.  In academia I am almost there.  I am waiting on some word concerning a possible full-time teaching job, so until that happens, and I might need to get a new doctor due to insurance reasons, HRT is once again put on hold.  Still, I am out and free.Me and Josie had a great time in New Mexico.AND - a major academic publisher in New York wants to offer me a 2-book contract!  The first will be published later this year.Okay, gotta run to class now.  More later.

    I hardly blog anymore!  I don't have the time!Karen Brad is writing enough about her trip here.  Because of her trip I am doing some serious thinking about maybe going back to the boats this summer (if I can!).  It was great being able to talk about Chicago history and architecture like that.Josie will be here next week.  8 days away!  I cannot wait.  For the first time I will be able to really give her a Chicago tour, like I did for Karen.  We just never had the time before.Things have gone south with the museum.  I need to get out of there.  I can't believe a place I loved so much became so bad.  I cannot tolerate how they treat me, especially after all I have done for them.On the plus side, I am going to be publishing another book this year, my school is trying to get me on fulltime, and I have another conference to attend.  But the one big thing is that I am pretty much fully out.  And that is a relief.

Really coming out

This week I will be calling my "new" doctor to schedule an appointment.  I really miss my other doctor.  She was not only a great doctor but also a very attractive black woman.  I wish I could look like her!

I came out to another co-worker last night.  I was going to tell her last week when we were working the Zephyr alone.  She was totally cool about it, not to mention VERY supportive.  I always liked this girl because she is a free thinker, very much in her own little universe.  Josie met her when she first visted the museum.

Speaking of the museum, they are treating me with kid's gloves these days.  I think they're afraid I am going to leave.  The VP herself wrote a glowing e-mail about me to my supervisor.  The VP got a chance to watch me in action and she thought I was the best.  My supervisors are also doing what they can to make sure I am assigned to certain daily activities they know I like, such as Pocket Science and the Petroleum Planet exhibit.  I especially love Pocket Science as I get to wander around the museum all day and play little science games with the kids.  The parents like it when I engage the kids in activities while they are buying tickets.  That's because these kids have a load of energy, and because I get their attention, the parents can then take care of business.

So, step by step.
