Faith! Wonderful update! I'm so glad everything went so well. I had a feeling it would. So did you and Lori bring your swimsuits and get wet?

Hugs you two!

@Donica

We took our suits, didn't go in. Too many wee ones and too late by the time they got tired of it.

I hate to say I told you so... well, “hate” is so strong a word. “Slightly dislike” is more appropriate, so

I told you so!

So happy for you, Faith! I saw this in Wally World, so here:

@Stephanie
do you need my address to send it to me?  :D

oh, and I could see the grimace of distaste as you forced yourself to type "I told You So"

@Donica
I'll have to order that hat to have on hand in case Laurie decides to show up in an unplanned visit.

  Refrigerator hat? Drats I missed that one I'll have to go back to read about it.

 @stephanie I have an address for @Faith if you  need it. Was that a dress or a shirt?

  Faith, I hope you never expect me to show up on a planned visit. You know better.

 Hugs,
   Laurie

I fully expect Michelle to corrupt your personal values ... in a good way ... That includes planning things (and that nasty attachment to refrigerators ). We'll see  ...........

Lmao Faith.  I saw the hat in Donica's thread. Looks nice except for it being a ball cap.

  I read what you said about that "P" word and it's up on the fridge with you!!

I don't wear caps, especially ball caps. I put one on and .. meh .. Lori puts the same one on, styling!  it's sickening

Oh, so that’s where I left my #stormchips!

I may get back to “women’s-styled” ball caps some day, but due to light-sensitive eyes and self-consciousness about hair loss, they were “his” signature style. Everyone was sure they weren’t detachable, and it was very rare that I would be seen without one - basically funerals. One of the rituals at my New Life party was letting everyone throw one of my old hats in the fire.

Oh, ummm, about that “Faith” shirt (not dress), it was at Walmart and I didn’t want to insult you with something from there. No, I didn’t know your size! Uh, I went back to get it and somebody was at the checkout with it already.  I was devastated!

Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Stephanie (everything I tell you is a lie, including this.)

ok, with that out of the way.

I wrote a PM today that reminded me of something Lori recounted to me. It last night when we were out and I was playing music ... you guys did read that right? you did notice that I posted somewhere else on the forum? You do follow me everywhere I go, don't you? I'm very insecure you know, you have to speak up and ... oh, the story, sorry ... she told me she was talking to some there about us (with no specifics) because for some reason I tend to come up in conversation when I'm not there and ... oh, sorry, digressing again ... Anyways, she told them that no way she wanted me to go back to the way that I was. She much prefers the current me that treats her with respect and as an equal. The thing is, I always respected her and felt her equal, better even in a lot of ways. BUT, my actions due to being a crappy person didn't allow that to show. Well, there I go again, digressing, All I wanted to say was how good it made me feel. :)

I ain't no stalker, so I can't promise that I follow you everywhere you go.  But I did get that you were playing music (yay!) and that your wife is happier with the new you than with that old guy.  That deserves more than a "yay", that deserves a woo-hoo!

@Donica ... music sub-forum

Well, answered a question on the guitar forum that I went back to. Turns out that one of the people that I corresponded with is, by label, gender-fluid. He/she doesn't like labels but I can't post a name so there you go.

is this a small world or what?

Faith, this comment "...Anyways, she told them that no way she wanted me to go back to the way that I was. She much prefers the current me that treats her with respect and as an equal. The thing is, I always respected her and felt her equal, better even in a lot of ways. BUT, my actions due to being a crappy person didn't allow that to show" really rings true.  I can look back and see that just maybe I wasn't as nice as I thought I was.  With the fog of T gone, I have worked diligently to rectify that and as with your Lori, my wife sees a vast improvement.  Through all the pain, something good does come about!

Even if nothing else improves just that makes it worth it.
