As I get older, the choices get worse. Perhaps when I am 75 they will be so bad that I will refuse to vote.

Wouldn't you want to decide that for yourself?

Yes, of course. I was just making a tangential observation.

My special girl is all atwitter with excitement. After long delays, her place reopened today and she's super happy about it.  I met the new owner, and he seems nice. She introduced me to him as her "BFF". Since she's not really out, I understand... and since I'm not really out either, I've done the same to her.
...
  Although she has not felt confident the past week.  With the big reopening underway, the new owners have been there constantly making sure everything is going smoothly. She feels like she's being observed.  Also she feels quite undermined, as the owners are the ones giving all the direction to the staff. When they want to know what to do they walk right past her and talk to the owners.  She isn't "managing" anything, and she feels useless. Hopefully it sorts itself out soon.

 ....aaaaand she quit.

It became clear that the new owners preferred to have their own people in charge of everything, and she was pushed off to the side.

On the bright side, she's starting a new job right away.  Her side-hustle didn't make enough money to earn a living, but it did make her some contacts that got her an office gig.  So she is bidding farewell to hospitality. She seems happy to be starting a "grown up job" and to be out of the muddled situation that her previous job had become. But she used to enjoy it, and I think she always dreamed of running a really cool spot... maybe she can start her own some day.

Ugh. 

Easy was breathing quickly and the Dr. told us to go into emergency.  He's ok but Children's Hospital emergency is the worst place to spend 5 hours Friday night...  :P

Certainly glad to hear he's OK. Hope he's on the mend.

He's fighting it so he gets super great and doubly fun for a few hours then it comes back and he's miserable.  He's getting more teeth now too so it's all miserable. 

Also, mom cut his overflowingly beautiful blonde locks of hair (dunno why he's blonde we both have brown hair chestnutty... hmmm.... I think the lab technician at the Fertility Clinic had blonde hair also clammy hands... nevermind) and gave him a 'boy' cut so now he looks more like Clint Howard - Gentle Ben era - but way better looking....

Is it just a cold? Why do they think he was breathing quickly?

And his hair will probably get darker as he gets older.

I hope he recovers quickly.  Tiny humans are not strong or smart, but they are very resilient.


Last weekend I helped the missus move a couch into her place.  She bought a bunch of stuff from someone she knows who is divorcing and downsizing.  One of the benefits of having superhuman strength is that I can do stuff that she'd have to a guy for help with. I'm not as strong as I was when I was doing physical labor for 40 hours a week, but I'm still as strong as 12 gorillas.  Pro-tip, guys: girls love it when you move heavy things for them. It gets them all hot and distracted.

Anyway, her apartment felt very empty with sparce furniture, but now that she has furniture and decorations and art and stuff, it feels completely different.  It feels cozy and warm and inviting.  We hosted our first party as a couple last night, as some of her friends were over for dinner and drinks. It felt like a very couples thing to do.

Today, we are going to my office Christmas party together. Some of my coworkers know I prefer the company of women, some don't. Some are old, some are conservative, some are old and conservative.  None of them have met my girl yet. Feeling a little anxious. Wish us luck.

Wow.  Good luck.  On her side, though, isn't this her first same-sex "relationship". 

As brave as it is for you to bring someone to work... I feel like you greeting her personal friends would be a little more nerve wracking no ?

And... you're strong ?  Are you big or little ?  My grandpa was a tiny man who basically had no end to his energy levels.  He was tiny and wiry and never quit.

I used to have high energy but I'm wondering if I'm seeing new days now... I just need a nap sometimes.

No one’s life is linear. You’ve got this, friend.

She has had flings with women before, but this is the first serious relationship she has had with a woman.

The party was great!  Everybody liked her. If anybody had anything negative to say, they waited until I was out of earshot.  Even the old lady who usually makes homophobic jokes was very positive.  And everybody liked the food she made! It was nice to feel  accepted.

The elderly couple who host the party were especially kind to her:
"Lindsey, it was delightful meeting you. I hope we see you at our next party! Kimberly...  you can stay home."

"Lindsey, it has been a pleasure.  ...  Kim, it's been decidedly ... average." 

They tease me because they like me.

...I think.

As brave as it is for you to bring someone to work... I feel like you greeting her personal friends would be a little more nerve wracking no ?

nah.  I'd met some of her friends before, and I assume that she has had the talk with them already.  It didn't really feel like a coming-out in the way that bringing my girl to the office party did.

And... you're strong ?  Are you big or little ?  My grandpa was a tiny man who basically had no end to his energy levels.  He was tiny and wiry and never quit.

I used to have high energy but I'm wondering if I'm seeing new days now... I just need a nap sometimes.

I'm stronger than home-made whiskey!   I'm only 5'5, but I have a lot more muscle on my little frame than most women.   As I've mentioned, I worked in construction for about 10 years, and doing that kind of work every day builds a kind of strength that a few hours a week at the gym just can't give you.  I have lost some muscle since moving to a sedentary job, but I still lift and keep in good shape.
