I went to see my therapist in the city.  She's going to be writing my first surgery letter in the near future, probably tomorrow.   :icon_biggrin:  :icon_joy:

I probably have to wait a year to get in to see a shrink for my second letter, but I'm not even going to think about that.

We had a big rush on to get ready for the storm that's coming tomorrow.  They are calling it a "weather bomb", and it's hitting dead centre where we live tomorrow.  The wood box in the house is full (a two-day supply), the generator is parked in the woodshed, within reach of the external connection on the house.  I picked up extra flashlight batteries on my way home today.  We have the Coleman stove in the house for power-off cooking.  I think we are ready.  I just hope the Internet stays on.  ;)

cuddle up for warmth Kathy, I know I will. It's like 57F here right now ... brrr ... ;D

Seriously though, I grew up in cold weather lands. Nothing to be lazy about. I'll keep you warm in my thoughts until, hmm, May?
Aug 2017 - After Years of General Depression, I started to figure out the why.
Sept 2017 - Lots of online research to educate myself, Susans kept popping up
Oct 2017 - Changed my diet to improve my health and aid in the direction I wanted to go. At the same time, I informed my wife of my suspicions so we could work it out together.
Oct 25th 2017 - Officially made an account On Susans to introduce myself - namelessly
Nov 11 2017 - Found out my True Name, Faith Nicole - thanks Devlyn!
Dec 23 2017 - Officially, verbally, admitted to myself and my Wife about being Transgender
Dec 26 2017 - First trip to Therapy .. who needs therapy ? ? ? ? ? ?

When Kendra was here we were discussing silly things, and came up with the idea of a hand-cranked internet router. I mean, what’s the most important thing to have when you’re snowed in?

Be safe, Kathy, and take care of yourself, your spouse, your dog, and your observatory, in that order. I want to see all of them in good shape when we come to visit!

Sounds like something KAOS would have used in Get Smart!

Sorry about that, Chief.

LOL!!  You girls are hilarious!  You could take your show on the road.

Steph, I love the hand-cranked router idea!  That would sell.

Yeah! All I had to eat were ice cubes, and I threw them all at Faith.

I’ll be good! 🤞🏻 <snicker>

 Jayne,

  She may just have to wait until I get better and decide to make that postponed Florida road trip. Besides she looks so cute up there. Sue will probably get her a ladder after she stops laughing.

  Kathy,

     Look on the bright side, You with have plenty of material after the storm to  build igloos for Stephanie to stay in if she ever gets off the fridge and visits you. Stay safe.

Hugs,
   Laurie

We seem to have hi jacked Kathy’s thread with our foolishness. I seem to remember similar mischievous behaviour on my thread not too long ago.

Who’s thread shall we hijack next? Faith, Laurie..... No, we should hijack Steph’s thread. She is stuck on the fridge and won’t be able to do anything about it.
