    I already posted in the Forums about Josie's accident.  Thankfully she is fine.  I just wish I could be there to help.  Someday soon we will be together all the time.Things keep rolling at the museum.  Upper management is always asking me to do special projects.  But some of the bloodshed continues as my good friend Kelly was let go this week for nothing but personal reasons.  She did not get along well with her senior coordinator.  Instead of letting her go to another team, they just cut her loose.What bothers me is we have a bunch of dead weight in the department, many of which are on my team.  We have people who talk to their friends all day long and not watching out for their jobs.  I don't like to see anyone get fired (unless truly deserved), but I wish we could have made a team trade concerning Kelly, who does want to work.My Jazz Age book is about to reach its 100% benchmark.  That means a nice little paycheck for me!  I have been working like mad on this for two solid weeks.I had to keep a lot of Meredith hidden this weekend as my kid was here, as well as her dog!  I didn't mind taking Rocky out for walks several times a day.  We all had a lot of fun.Now, back to abnormality!

    My department had a sunset cruise on Lake Michigan Thursday night.  It was a good time.  We were on one of the large cruise ships that dock at Navy Pier.  On the way over they chartered a double decker bus, complete with a docent.  Uh oh.  I used to do that but on the boats!  I got a little vocal when this docent got some of her Chicago history facts wrong!  Mere, shut up!The boat was beautiful, with multiple decks, two bars, etc.  This was my first time being out on the lake since my job on the boats two years ago.  Looking out over the skyline, and even seeing one or two boats from my old job, I had memories of what it was like two years ago.  I was still struggling but finding my way.  The museum was just around the corner.  The funny thing is I remembered how two years ago I would be working the boats while a party went on.  Now I was in the party!The museum encouraged people to dress up for the cruise, if possible.  I made so many open comments about wanting to wear a cocktail dress that half the people on the cruise asked me where my dress was (including the Director of the department!).  I calmly explained that I gave Josie the dress I would have used for that occasion - which is the truth (Josie looks so pretty in that dress!).  The girls really dolled up so nice that I became jealous.I had a chance to talk to a coworker we nicknamed "Chopper" because of her style of dress.  I came out to her, and she was completely into it.  She offered me any help she could give.  On the way back she sat with me up on the top deck.  I swear, Juan Valdez and his donkey moved faster than that bus.A few weeks back a male coworker found out about me, although accidentally.  There was this beautiful t-girl going to take a U-505 tour.  When Mary Mulberry asked me if I would be looking like her, she did so in front of my friend Jefrey.  Mary really thought Jefrey knew about me.  No big deal, so I came out to him.  Again, I was accepted as I am, and nothing has changed in our friendship.

    Girls, in my last blog just two days ago I wrote about that harrassment training I had to go through, and how I asked a question about what legal protections trasngendered persons have.Apparently, this has literally sent the museum into a tizzy!My friend Kelly - who does know about me (hell, I gave her one of my skirts and a dress!) - called me yesterday.  She had some good news concerning herself (she was hired as an assistant manager at a live production theatre), and then said to me:"What did you do at that training yesterday?"Wherever she went, people were talking about what I said, and wondering what it meant.  There is all this talk going on about me!  People are now wondering if I'm gay (well, yes, I am a lesbian as I do date Josie), am I a CD, etc.  Nobody has yet to ask me directly.  This is great!  I love it!This means all the more that I am now going to sit down with my senior coordinator and managers and tell them what is going on.  It has to be done sooner or later, and I am going to make it sooner.Not bad for someone who, just three years ago, was sleeping on an old basement couch and about to start slinging popcorn in a movie theatre.As for Karen Brad's most recent blog, I, too, do not like this current bickering.  But one thing did cross my mind - every now and then we go through a purge like this, then things settle down and it's back to the insanity.  While I dislike any sort of fighting, a group of people who hang out like we do will eventually get on each other's nerves.  I just hope this one passes quickly.

    I had the follow-up with my doctor the other day.  The good news?  My blood work came back just great, including my liver results.  That means, again, HRT is a possibility.  My blood pressure is down, but my cholesterol is still high.  That was no surprise.  He is trying some new meds on me for the cholesterol, which generally produce some, shall we say, "interesting" side effects.At the musuem we were all required to take those hilarious harrassment training courses.  While I certainly feel for those who are victims of workplace harrassment, these training videos are a scream.  When the topic of gender came up, I raised my hand:"I know there have been some changes in the law, but what about those who are transgendered?"While his answer lumped us TG folks under the protetion banner of "sexual orientation," I learned how protected I would be when I start the full transition.  I did not come fully out at the meeting, though.  That was neither the time nor place.  Besides, there are some people I should tell privately first before making a general announcement.  A coworker IMd me later in the day to tell me how brave she thought I was (needless to say, she knows about me).Then, at the morning meeting, I was once again recognized by management for my hard work.  Apparently upper management said something to my team leaders, and they passed it down.  Now, if only that translated into more money.Josie ordered us some new rings.  Wow.

    On Wednesday I have a follow-up with my new doctor concerning my blood work.  Since he has not called me in any sort of panic, that tells me that things should be fine.  When I see him he's going to refer me to some endos who are friends of his.  Look out!  HRT is just around the corner!Once again, Happy Birthday to Karen Brad, who is going to serve as hostess for my wedding to Josie.  Sure, it's still a year or two away, but it doesn't hurt to plan in advance!  Me and Josie talked about who we want to stand up for us, and who we felt would be best in certain roles.  We both agreed that Karen was the best choice for hostess.  Lilienne is my maid of honor.  Girls, there are still some jobs we want to assign, so you might be next on the phone call list!Josie went and bought us some gold bands to wear instead of the silver ones we've been using.  She also bought me some new jeans since my old ones have some strategically placed holes.  Oh, dear..........................This is my second straight day at home.  My mind and body screamed at me for some rest after about two straight weeks of work without a break.  I have sick time coming to me, so I won't lose any pay.  Things have been going great at the museum.  I've been having fun again.  Who would have thought that was possible after all that's happened this past year?

    Still getting my strength back from that great birthday weekend I had with Josie!First of all, thank you to all you who wished me a happy birthday.  I appreciate it!My plane was pretty much on time getting to Denver.  When I got tired of grading class papers on the plane I took to defacing the airline's magazines.  I haven't been that juvenile since......uh, two hours previous.  I could not wait to get off that plane and into Josie's arms.  When I saw her there waiting for me by the huge fountain in the airport terminal I once again realized how lucky I am to be with her.  We had some rain driving to her place, which made for a romantic night at her place.  We sipped white russians and then...............WELL.........The next day we went to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science where I got in for free because of a reciprocal agreement with my museum.  What a wonderful place!  I loved it.  I also clicked into museum mode and almost started to discipline people goofing on exhibits.  We had a nice lunch there before heading back home.  We stopped at the grocery store where we picked up what I needed to make her my infamous spaghetti dinner.  She picked up a cake mix to make for my birthday.We had a nice dinner and started watching some of the movies we rented.  The next day we went up into the mountains, which was wonderful.  Y'all know I have a fear of heights.  I was fine going up there, and being on the mountain, but the ride down was a bit scary as I was sitting on the passenger side, with the mountain slopes right next to me.  I got to see more of Denver and its surrounding areas.  What a great place.You do realize I am leaving out certain details, right?  As if you couldn't guess.That night I made us a tasty steak and baked potato dinner.  We watched an incredibly romantic movie - No Country for Old Men.  Girls, SEE THIS MOVIE!!!  The Coen Brothers do it again!On Sunday Josie had to go to work for a while but was back in the morning.  That was fine as I had some editing work to do.  We had a nice brunch, then went to see her horse for a while.  I got to see how Josie trains horses, and it was great.  These others horses at the farm kept coming up to me to pet them.The rest of the day we relaxed, spend more time in bed, and then made our way to the airport where we had a light dinner.  I did all I could to keep from crying when it was time to part, and it worked until just after I saw her face for the last time.  The flight home was pleasant and on time, and I was home by midnight.  I was so exhausted at work the next day.THE BIG NEWS - Just before we went to the museum we went to the store where we bought promise rings for each other. In the car we exchanged the rings, and now we are making our future plans together.  We got a chance to get into TW over the weekend where we made it official.  Well, Lilienne already knew, but we made a general announcement in the chatroom.  We are taking our time with specifics as we are waiting to see what will happen with a few career moves and want to plan around those.  For now the plan is for me to move to Denver sometime in the future.  I could see myself working at that museum, and teaching at the area schools.That's the short version of the weekend!  What a great time, and a great birthday present!

    Thanks to all you who came to the chatroom wine and cheese party that me and Lilenne sponsored!  It was a fun time, and the movie trivia quiz went great.In only a few days I go see Josie.  We haven't seen each other since the end of June.  This is my first real time off since the first time I went out there back in December.  I get there Thursday night and leave on Sunday.  Since my birthday is next week, we're going to be celebrating,  A lot.Tomorrow I get my first blood work redone to clear me for HRT.  Finally.

    Yesterday I met with my new doctor, and I must say I like him a LOT.  He was totally cool about my being a TS, and is going to support me in transitioning.  Plus, girls, if you're into men, he is quite good looking, too.  He was such a nice guy.Although I have been previously cleared for HRT, those blood tests are over a year old.  While he highly doubts any change, he wants to do new tests, just for procedure.  He wants to be able to say - if ever asked - that he was being thorough and not relying on old results.  I agree with the move, and will do this blood work on Tuesday morning. While I can find an endocrinologist on my own, he knows several good ones, and will personally make a reference for me.  This was a nice stroke of luck.  I need to get back to my therapist, and someone recommended I get a second one who specializes in transgendered persons.  I will do that right away.In one week I jump back into a plane and head out to Colorado to hang out with Josie for my birthday.  We always have so much fun when we are together.  Well, we better, since we're a couple!  We are going shopping for rings, so, stay tuned, there might be an announcement soon.Here we go again!

    The senior coordinator for my team at work had a barbeque yesterday at his house after work.  I did go, although Josie could not be with me, and I had a nice time.  A lot of my coworkers showed up, and we made the usual jokes.  We are getting ready to shoot another movie for You Tube.  My friend Freddy said I should be dressed in a suit and tie and be an uptight businessman, because, in his words, "If you showed up in a dress we would expect that.  You need to play against type."As I said before, I say things about being TG all the time, but people think I am making a joke (that is, those who do not know about me).  I was THIS CLOSE last night to telling everyone I was TG.  What stopped me?  While I was not drunk at all, I had had a beer or two, and wanted to prevent anything thinking I was making an alcohol-laden confession.  When (not if) I fully come out, I want to be as sober as possible.Pretty soon I'll know what they're going to do with the piccies from the two photo shoots I did last week for the museum.  I will also be posting more about that React table.  That thing is so much fun!  I won't want the guests to use it, I'll keep it for myself!By the way, I didn't make much of it, but last Friday was the three year anniversary of being thrown out of my house, touching off a nightmare that lasted almost a year.  The next day I had a long talk on the phone with my ex.  We're getting along pretty good, and she said she does consider me to be a friend.  Three years ago I never thought that would ever happen!  Nor did I think I would have my life back on track.  I was thrown out, ostracized, hated, and in a hospital, staring out the window and wondering what I would do to survive.  Three years later I have my confidence back, with a lot of the credit to the girls here at TW.  I would like to list names but am afraid of leaving anyone out.  Some of the names, though, are Karen Brad, Anna-Marie, Marsha Ann, Michelle Lynn, Kendra Katana Yunalesca, Nikki, Josie (of course!), and, naturally, Lilienne Li.Now, back to the insanity!

    I finally made an appointment with a new doctor.  I held off for a while because I did not know where I might be living.  Now that I know I am staying here for another year, it was time to get back in to everything.  My breathing problems have been getting better.  I just need to get back on track with transitioning.  Once I see my new doctor, I will make the appointment with a new endo to get the HRT going.I had the interview for the other position at the museum last Friday, but I was not told I was to have a ten minute audition ready.  I did that part on Tuesday, and I think it went fine.  Of all things, what did I talk about?  Respiration!  There I was battling with asthma, and talking about how different animals utilize oxygen.  If I do not get the spot it won't kill me since I will still be at the museum.  I'll be a little disappointed, but it won't be like I am going out on the streets.I will be going to Denver in two weeks to see Josie for my birthday.  That will be great!  I can't wait to see the mountains just as autumn is setting in.  I could sure use the break.  I am back to working six days a week, and I get so tired sometimes.  I love the Lord of the Rings movies, and on Sunday I actually fell asleep during Return of the King.  I am already planning the menus for what meals I will cook for Josie.Right now, my focus is on getting back on the HRT track.
