    Hot Humid & Icky!!!I went to bed Wensday night with out looking at a weather report. I had my window open to let in some air. When I woke up my gown was glued to me. It felt so gross. I turned on the air to kill the humidity & went straight to the shower. Work Thursday & Friday was nasty sticky. That's the part of summer I could do without.I signed up for product testing as Karen one day on some site. I get some little sample size things now & then, mostly junk I throw out. But I got a bar of dove soap a few weeks ago & I just opend it a few days ago. My skin feels great. Realy soft & smooth. In fact it feels so nice I keep touching it. I realy like touching myself. lol I want to get over to Mere's some weekend soon & it looks like I might have a lot of time off in July. Chrysler was supposed to go back up next week but we just got notice that they are waiting untill Augast. So we might do a 2 week shutdown.

    They waited untill the last minute Thursday to tell me I needed to fill in for someone on second shift Friday. But that I still had to cover at least half of first shift. So I knew it was going to be a long day but yay I would get some overtime.I had to run cell 5 for the first time in a long time. We set up a new job before everyone left, all I had to do was get it going. I had so many problems that after 12hrs it still wouldn't run right. I can't beleave how nasty that cell is with old dirty oil. I don't think there was a clean spot on me. Add to that the heat & swetting. After a 12hr shift I was so ready to go home, I had to cover my car seat with plastic before I could get in it.But a long hot shower, a nice silk nightgown, & a full pitcher of frozen margeritas later I was feeling better.

    Dreams can be so wierd. I had a dream in which I was a woman. I didn't feel any different but everyone kept calling me "she or her". But that's not what stuck out about it in my mind.I have on many accasions dreamed I was dressed in a nice dress or skirt. In this dream I was wearing a denim skirt & vest with a white short sleeve shirt. Nothing special or fancy about it.What was odd is that I was wearing orange tights. Ugly orange tights.The whole dream seemed to be about people asking me why I had on such ugly orange tights.This was the first dream I've had that I was a woman, not just dressed like one, & that's the best I could do?What a let down. But than again I've allways thought of myself as a woman inside. So I guess it was a normal dream. Trust me for any woman to have to go out in those ugly orange tights it would be a real nightmare.

    Guess I need to shrink this one down a bit.It's been an intresting week at work. They split my day up. I start at 6am work untill 10am than go home untill 2pm & work untill 6. It feels like I'm there for the whole 12hrs realy, not fun. But you have to be willing to do what's needed, that's just a fact in todays job market. Fact is I saw what had to be done & I went to them with it before they came to me. Browny Points!!! We got the extra work done & I'm back on normal hrs.Starting to see some progress with the laser treatment. I have areas on my neck & cheeks that no longer have any hair. Which is good & bad. If I don't keep a close shave I look like I have a skin disease. So I have to shave twice a day.My doctor made me an appointment with a surgen about my liver. But with work hrs jumping around I had to reschedule. Normaly they send reminders in the mail but mine came UPS. I hope I don't realy need surgery.

    I'm looking at the end of my credit card trouble. I will soon pay off one more which only leaves one, the biggest one. But once it's done with I will never let things get to this point again. When I was laid off it was the credit cards that would have sunk me. So I've learnd one must use credit wisely, not to just get all the little toys I want.I went back to work full time on Wensday. They laid another guy off to get me in. But he realy wasn't doing his job. He was supposed to be doing all the electrical debugging that pops up. But he never realy fixed a problem he just put temperary band-aids on them & called it done. Thats how he was trained to do it for the big three.I guess I could go on about stuff but I'm just happy to be back to work.I am off mones permanently. The liver damage done from the hep-c is to extensive, so I need a new plan.

    I started off today the same. No job nowhere to go, feeling down. At 9 I went to pick up my vacation check & heard they might be calling a tech back to work. My check coverd all my outstanding bills with some left over, feeling up.My doctor called to say the CT scan of my liver showed the cist hasn't changed. But they think it's time for it to come out. That doesn't make any sence to me because they said it was to small to get with a probe before & that they would have to open me up to find it. So I was better off not doing it. Well if it's the same why do they want to take it out now. Being laid off I can't collect medical from work & if I can't work I lose my unemployment, feeling down.Work Called me to come in for 4hrs today. The boss said he would get me back in next week. Thank God!!

    When I bought my condo a history search showed that they had been selling for $120,000. I paid $57,000. The unit 2 door over just sold for $25,000. The lady had to sell it or lose it. But that take the value of all of them way down. I may be losing mine soon. It would be nice if I could rent it out, That way at some point I could move back in.Of course if I could just win the lottery!!!

    Well trying to think of someways I could shrink my bills I got an email from Onstar. I'd forgot about that. I called to cancell & they gave me 3 months free, after that time I can still cancell or continue at a much lower price per month.Than I called Sprint to complain about getting spam text that I was being charged for. I got a $21 credit, 10% off my contract & a $300 phone for free.Next I called Chase about my credit card to ask if they could lower the intrest to help me be able to keep up. I was told no. To try again in 2010.2 outta 3 were willing to work with me. So monday I will keep making calls to explain the situation & try to work with as many as I can.

    So I got time on my hands. Well I can't just sit here so I started going fow walks with my camera. I was thinking that when I see something nice I would snap a pic. On the first day I was taking a pic of a flower bed when the police pulled up. It seems someone thought I was trying to find little kids or looking for a home I could break into. Brfore they let me go they said I should stick to the main roads.Yesterday I found nothing to shoot but I did see a lot of buisnesses that have closed. Today I chose another road & still didn't find anything I wanted to shoot. I did find out that the road I was on is where the working girls go. As I was walking a car pulled up & stopped next to me, not knowing why I just kept walking, so he drove off. The second car honked its horn a couple on times before driving away. It was the third one that sealed it. He rolled down his window & asked how much for oral sex. He left when I started yelling at him. At that point I got off that street & took a different way home.I might live in the suburbs but it's an ugly part of town.

    OK, so I get some time off from work. Looking at my money I'm good for May & I hope this is a short layoff.This could also be an opportunity for me. I'm going to look to see if I can find something that I can do as Karen. I don't evan come close to passing as a woman but if I can find work as an effeminate looking man than I can move on in time to fulltime.
