Finally. FINALLY. Got referred to the Gender Clinic for Gender Reassignment.

I'm going to be fully male!!! YESSSSSSSSS.

I can't tell you how happy I am about this. I've been fighting for this since I was 19. BOOYAH.

Congratulations, and good luck with that, Scummy!

As for me, I had a pretty good last couple of days. Today, the FF's got me a giant gourmet candy apple as an early birthday present. Yesterday, I had a pretty good interview- for a paid position in wildland firefighting. My husband will also be starting a new job Tuesday.

Spoke to the Gender Clinic today. They're just waiting for funding from the Birmingham PCT and then they can send me through my appointment - looking at May/June time. This, as you can imagine, is bloody fantastic ^^ Happy Scum is most definitely happy, and is now going to celebrate with coffee and caek :D

So excited, finally got Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.


Unfortunately... I'm finding my head ache is preventing me from fully enjoying it. We shall see.

Some time ago, I posted grievous news. A couple of good friends of mine had to make the most heartbreaking decision to stop treatment for their daughter's inoperable brain tumor. I have a policy of never expecting a miracle, but I believe they do happen from time to time. This would be an example- the kid's cancer free!

Join me in singing this ode to the simple things that are the best in life, and in particular a nice hot and fragrant tub!


Bath-Song

Sing hey! For the bath at close of day
that washes the weary mud away
A loon is he that will not sing
O! Water Hot is a noble thing!

O! Sweet is the sound of falling rain,
and the brook that leaps from hill to plain;
but better then rain or rippling streams
is Water Hot that smokes and steams.

O! Water cold we may pour at need
down a thirsty throat and be glad indeed
but better is beer if drink we lack,
and Water Hot poured down the back.

O! Water is fair that leaps on high
in a fountain white beneath the sky;
but never did fountain sound so sweet
as splashing Hot Water with my feet!


-John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
“You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a bike and that’s pretty close”

EVERYTHING IS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD BECAUSE BILL IS IN JAIL!

Yes, I have 180 days of Bill-less living! Sure, no computers and no television as our satellite was just cut but with no Bill we can afford to get our computers fixed and our satellite turned back on in no time!

A job interview is a good excuse for a road trip, and I enjoyed both very much.

Matthew was playing outside with my brother and took a hockey puck to the face. My brother carried him inside, yelled for my mom, and brought him to me with his face half-covered in blood. They go to clean him up while I call Matt, who's on his way to work to tell him we're probably going to have to take him to the hospital for stitches. The astounding part? We think he'll live without the stitches, which saves the hassle of the hospital and having to pay for them. Tiffany seemed to take it fairly well when Matt told her, and we told Matt's mom so she can dose him with ibuprofen tomorrow at school.

Also, once he was all cleaned up and calmed down, he went right back to playing hockey until we told him we needed to put a bandaid on it because it needed a butterfly. But, we just bribed him with gummy bears, and now he's happily killing zombies.

Better than the thrill of barelling down country roads at top speed with lights and sirens is the joy of returning to the station at a leisurely pace celebrating a job well done.

Got a nursing-related job starting next week, and the added bonus is that my new employer will accomodate my firefighting schedule- even if I get on with one of the wildland firefighting crews! Here's to more certain, steady income!

Had a job interview today that went pretty well, and the open position looks quite promising. Now the downside is that it'll be three to four weeks before I find out if I got it. I'm mildly optimistic, so far.

The kids are getting paper routes! Now if they want to do something fun or if there's something they'd like to get, I'll be less likely to have to say, "Sorry, we just don't have the money."

The only drawback- guess who'll have to drag them out of bed at 5 am. But still..!
