UsernameOpti... : (12 July 2014 - 08:22 PM) Why does the media continue to mistakenly identify anti-TGBL haters as, "pundits?"  Doesn't calling a blithering bigot a "pundit," qualify as oxymoronic?

Another call to Mom.

family, finances
I won't be going into all the background here. You can find that in my previous entry, "Why I Told Mom"

I'd been advised by my therapist that I should just wait for Mom to contact me. I'd followed that advice until this week. The day after Christmas, I called her to wish her happy holidays. That wasn't all we talked about.

From: Why I told Mom

Posted by Daneela , 28 October 2012 - - - - - - · 238 views


We know I'm a woman. Very few other people know that; I first came out to myself, then my wife of 39 years and my daughter. After them, I explained to my older grandchildren that "sometimes a boy's brain gets born in a...

Return

Posted by Daneela , 15 April 2012 - - - - - - · 208 views

I can't see when I last posted or even what I said.  I'm certain, though, it was quite some time ago. Many things were different than before and are different than now.

I've probably said before that I'm an alcoholic, though not recovering. I used it to drug myself into rest for the night. For over a decade, I had no trouble arising and...

Religion or Spirituality

Del's appearance in the forums and others' posts regarding their treatment at the hands of some Christians and Christian institutions prompts this entry today.  Originally, I was going to respond in a forum thread but then realized what I intend to share is much more than belongs there.  Some may call this a confession, others a testimony, others...

Returning

Posted by Daneela , 18 September 2011 - - - - - - · 174 views

Well, the Boston job fell apart.  It turned out that my being hired was conditional and there was nothing I could do about it.  The condition?  The customer deciding to upgrade the system but that didn't happen.  I was there every day, never knowing my status.  Stressful, to say the very least.

So, the firm gave me no notice, just told me the customer...

Moving on

Posted by Daneela , 16 May 2011 - - - - - - · 166 views

I've just completed my first day at the new job.  Believe me, the trip to get here was hellacious and not in a good sense.  You see, I thought I had a firm commitment to a rental car.  It turned out, when I stepped up to the counter to present my debit card, the agency refused to take it unless I showed them I was leaving town; they insisted on a return...

Moving. On? Up? Forward? Uncertain

Posted by Daneela , 07 May 2011 - - - - - - · 176 views

I may have mentioned that I have been working on a military project this past year.  Well, that contract is closing soon and I've already been "laid off" by my employer.  This comes as no big surprise; I've been treated exactly like this by every consulting firm I've ever worked for and even in permanent positions when the company...

The Grandkids

Posted by Daneela , 24 April 2011 - - - - - - · 134 views

Because school was closed for spring break, my 13 year old granddaughter and my 17 year old grandson asked if they could visit and stay overnight someday.  One reason is that our apartments have a pool and theirs doesn't.  Another might be that I have some cool, new games on my PC.  We agreed on Wednesday and my wife and I drove to their apartment home...

His Needs v. Hers v. Mine

Posted by Daneela , 13 February 2011 - - - - - - · 564 views

I knew what I needed to share with you today.  That's part of myself.  You need to know why I'm exposing this now and not before.  That was/is him.  You need to know what I'm trying to deal with besides my body.  That's about her.  Three sets of needs and needs are more than wants, more than desires, more than wishes.  Needs are needs and...

Happy New Year

Posted by Daneela , 31 December 2010 - - - - - - · 141 views

First, I'm wishing for your new year to be filled with happiness. I feel respected here.  I try to be very thoughtful in every way with everything I write in the message board and here.  Many of you have shared yourselves with us.  I've offered what I have.  Thanks for listening.

Wednesday I took the next tiny step on the journey.  I've been...
