Today after church I went out to lunch with a few friends including my sweetie tooth fairy.

..... medium rare Steak, Baked Potato, and a side Green Salad

           

Very nice lunch indeed.

HUGS,
Danielle

Dear readers and followers....
This morning before work I went to the gym with my sweetie and
several other gal-friends in our Gym Gals group for our weekly meeting.

Before the Gym-Gals group was a thing, I would go to
the gym by myself....  at that time there was a "creeper" guy
there that would stare in long gazes and he would also get on a
treadmill or other machine right next to me.  He almost always would
park himself on a bench or an exercise machine very close to the entrance
of the women's changing and locker room.

He made me feel very uncomfortable and it appeared to me that he was
following me around the gym....  you can read my comments about that
unpleasant experience in my first Blog Thread here on the Forums in early 2018.

At that time I was trying to deal with 5+ different suitors that were vying
romantic attention.  I had zero experience being the sought after woman in
relationships... definitively interesting learning experience, and  sometimes
frightening and confusing.

  https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,236395.msg2123029.html#msg2123029
I had complained to management and they immediately took care of the
problem and now I always go with other gals and we workout together.

The "safety in numbers" rule certainly applies in the gym and when shopping
and other activities.   It is a real blessing to have accepting friends
around us when we are out and about.   
Safety for us as women that venture out alone is a big concern.

Be safe out there, wherever you fall in LGBTQ definition there are
those that do not wish us well, so be careful and aware of your surroundings.

HUGS and best wishes... stay safe and stay healthy.
Danielle

@Northern Star Girl
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Dear Margrit:
I am back!!!!
Thank you for your wonderful message... 
Yes indeed, I also have missed you, and others here whenever
I am not able to be online and around the Forums...

The Susan's Place Forums is my home away from home,
and I have very many like-minded and supportive friends here
that I truly care about.   :)

I had several unanticipated medical appointments that
involved long driving trips out of town. 
It's a long drive to Anchorage  ...
...almost 6 hours and almost 400 miles (each way) so I
was not able to be as active on the Forums as I usually have been.

For a couple of the trips my tooth fairy sweetie took
time off of her work to be able to go with me.
When I have time and the internet capacity while I am
out of town I will try to be here and online....

Many HUGS,
Danielle

Hi Danielle :)

I am very sorry to read that you have unexpected medical appointments.
So I am really hopping there is no serious issue behind this unpleasant absence.
Take your time, hopefully you will be in perfect well health and excellent shape as soon as ever possible.

Best wishes
Magrit

Thank you dear friends and all of my followers and readers
for you messages and comments expressing your concern well-wishes for
my well-being as I ventured out of town for several medical appointments
which were primarily a wellness check, blood draw, review my previous
issues with my back pain, broken ankle and my ongoing migraine headaches.....   
....also having a followup Mammogram....   
I wish that I could tell you that all is OK but the doctors did find a
few things that they wish to explore in more detail...
...  the good news is that so far nothing big and not life threatening.

I had a new follow up Mammogram regarding a cyst-lump that they had removed
about 2½ years ago in November 2019       Mammogram alert
      https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,250316.msg2320331.html#msg2320331

The other issue that I sought medical advice for was my back injury that I
sustained years ago when I fell on an icy sidewalk near my office... 
I am sometimes having issues with severe back pain so I was subjected to an MRI...

I am waiting for the results from my doctors and any possible treatment that they
want me to have.

I left the doctors visits and came back home with an optimistic attitude.
In the scope of things, compared to many others I have nothing to complain about...
... there are those that have much more severe health issues that would trade
places with me in a microsecond.

HUGS and good thoughts to all of you that give
me encouragement and that follow my posts.

Danielle

Update:  Monday, June 20, 2022  12:30pm

I hate Mondays, particularly since I took the entire last week off so coming back
to my office today with the mountain of paper work that accumulated was not a
welcome sight to behold....
.... but "work is the yeast that raises the dough" so I have
put my nose to the grindstone and am very busy today.  I am soon going to take a
quick lunch break at the next door coffee shop and then back to my office, tonight
will probably be a late closing for my office.

HUGS,
Danielle

Officially the Summer Season starts tomorrow on June 21st
It is the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere which results
in the longest daylight hours and shortest nights.

Here, where I live, the sun is above the horizon for 22 hours and
the night when the sun is below the horizon is only for about 2 hours.
Sunrise 2:53am      Sunset 12:51am

It never really gets very dark... the sun just basically skims below the horizon
for a couple hours of twilight or dusk.   

Of course the opposite happens on the Winter Solstice in
the Northern Hemisphere on December 21st

Just got caught up on your thread, Danielle. Honestly with everything you listed, if something didn't pop up, I would start to question the equipment.

I do hope the two you highlighted come back in your favor, and that you are able to get you back pain under control. I know how bad that kind of pain is on your life. My Dad had to have major back surgery twice.

Glad you're back.

Allison
I have always known I would have been happier and lived a better life if I were born a woman, I just didn't know that that is the literal definition of the word transgender.

If you're not moving forward, you're moving backwards.

Be tougher on yourself than anyone else is, love yourself more than anyone else does, and if there is something you don't want to do at all, best if you do it right now.

Regarding my CPA and financial planning business.... 
It has been some trying times for most of my clients with the economic and inflation
issues that have been plaguing the USA this last year.

Some of my clients IRAs and other retirement funds have evaporated.   Some have
lost 25% or more of their retirement and savings.
Gas Prices, Food Prices, Utility Bills, among the prices for just about everything else
have caused hardships for many of my clients.

July 4th, USA Independence Day celebration is on Monday..

For my friends I am planning a Hot Dog Roast and Hamburger grilling at my home...
