My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday and a little Susan time

Well, it is a beautiful Saturday, the sun is shinning and it is in the mid 60’s a perfect spring day. I got up and wrote my blog from Wednesday nights zoom meeting and posted it and then decided to mow my yard. Yes, mowing my yard is my male half job as Susan doesn’t like yard work as she might get dirty or mess her makeup up. it was about 11:30 when I was done and time for my shower and to transform into Susan for the rest of the day. I took my time today so I could enjoy every minute so it was about 1:30 when I was all done and ready for my day. Yes, I did get some pictures, the other night in our zoom meeting we did talk about pictures and I was glad to hear the other girls were like me, way more female pictures then male. Now on my desktop I have about 5 pictures of my male self and none on my laptop or cell phone. Now for Susan pictures I have no idea as I have some on flash drives, my old laptops, I have 2 different OneDrive accounts and a drop box so they are spread out but I did a quick look on my cell phones camera folder and I have 2,317 pictures. I think I need to go through them and clean them up. Now I had no plans other than my weekly shopping.

I grabbed my purse and was on my way, as I pulled out of my garage the neighbor across the street was mowing his yard as I drove by. Well as I went down the street my gas light came on so first things was to stop and get gas so I headed for Costco as they are .30 cheaper than everyone else, they are still under $3.00 a gallon. I got there and there was a long line so as I waited, I got my usual picture in my car. I finally got to the pump and got out and filled up my car. Now I was off and today I decided to go to Walmart as I have a couple gift cards for them, yes back at Christmas my one credit card gave me 5% off everything I bought at Walmart co I bought a few gift cards. I got there and they were busy so I had to park a way out. Now I have 2 stories today about people I saw and I hate to pock on people but I just have to especially the first one. The guy who went in in front of me grabbed one of the little sanitizer wipes to wipe his cart down and then needed to dry his hands, they have a little paper towel dispenser with one towel sticking out that you grab but he didn’t do that. He just pulled it down a little more and wiped his hand on it and left it there. I so wanted to say something but Susan doesn’t like to make a scene. I went in and did my shopping and picked up a few extra things I needed and then went up and paid for them and was on my way home which brings me to my second story. I pulled up to a red light and noticed the man in the car next to me. He was all by himself in the car and was wearing a face mask which I personally don’t think you need when you are by yourself my opinion for what it worth. That is not the point though. His drivers side window was fully open as it was a nice day but he was also smoking. He would pull his mask down, take a puff and blow the smoke out and then pull his mask up. I watched him do this 3 times at the light before it turned green and we were on our way.

I got home and parked in my driveway and got my groceries out and went into my house. It was a beautiful day out and I got thinking Starbucks as I could sit outside. I got my computer and was on my way, now I could only stay a little while as I didn’t plug my computer in so I only have about an hour or less but it was better then nothing. Now as I walked out to my car in my driveway the couple across the street were also going outside, I think they were taking a walk but they stopped at the end of their driveway right by the road. I just got in my car and drove past them. I went to the Starbucks right by my house but they were busy at least at the tables outside. They have 5 of them all full and there was maybe 20 people there at them. I decided to drive over to the other one I usually go to and I got there and all their tables were open so I parked, put my mask on and went in.

The lady at the counter greeted me before I even got up there and said it was great to see me back. I thanked her and told her it just hasn’t been nice enough to sit outside. Well, it turns out 2 days ago they opened indoor seating, every other table. I ordered my drink and a cookie and then stood there and we talked as I waited for my drink. I decided to sit inside for a while at least long enough to charge up my computer. Another girl came in with her computer and sat a few tables down from me. This Starbucks has a drive through which had a pretty steady stream of cars but also a lot of people who came in for mobile orders or just to get something to go. It was about 4pm and my computer was fully charged so I got anther drink and moved outside so I could keep my mask off.

Now it was a little colder outside as the tables were in the shade but still comfortable enough. Spent about 2 ½ hours here (1 hour inside and the rest outside) catching up on some work, e-mails and just playing on my computer. I sat right outside the door facing the parking lot so I could watch the people come and go. It was such a relaxing afternoon and I can’t tell you how much I have missed coming to Starbucks, I think the last time I was able to come here was November 9th 2020 as after that they shut down indoor dining again. By 5 there were a few other people sitting outside now but they seemed to pay no attention to me. I went through a bunch of pictures on my computer cleaning them up, in other words getting rid of the ones I didn’t like, the ones I didn’t post, yes, I do have some bad pictures. It was almost 5:30 and had gotten hazy out and got a little colder so I decided it was time to leave Starbuck’s but I will be back.

Now it was getting late and I needed to get dinner and as I have not had McDonalds in over a week, yes, I have been eating better but I really had a craving for a burger and fries so that was my plan. I went through the drive through on my way home. The rest of the night I just spent at home watching TV. It was a good day and so relaxing. Now I am looking forward to Wednesday nights zoom meeting with my friends. Now it has been a little over a year since I got my ears pierced March 23rd of 2020 to be precise and I love it. Susan always wears earrings now something I hardly ever did before as I couldn’t take the clip on ones very long, best thing I could have done, and yes I love the hoop earrings.

Stay safe and be happy. Thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Wednesday Zoom meeting with my friends

Another Wednesday is here and I get to spend time with my friends again, I look forward to this all week. I got home from work and started getting ready, I took my time and tried for a more everyday look although I did go with a bold red lipstick as that really is my favorite color. It is funny as I read someplace that lipstick is the highest selling type of makeup but yet you don’t see a lot of woman wearing lipstick which is a shame as nice shade of lipstick really pulls a look together. I was all ready by 6 and got some pictures and called and talked to my mom for a while.

I started the meeting right at 7 and girls were already waiting, a few did show up late again tonight but as I always tell them better late then never. Tonight, we had 16 ladies join us, Nicole, Julie, Jennifer, Melissa, Tori, Jeanie, Maille, Jan & Lynn, Danika, Trish, Christy, Antonia, Danielle, Karla and me. It was great to see all my friends. Now one of the great things about the online meetings is people who can’t make it out or are out of town can join in, so our Portland group had 2 girls from the Seattle area, 2 from Central California, 2 from Southern California and yes 1 from Thailand as she lives there now. Now there is also a downside as some girls can’t dress at home either because their family doesn’t know or doesn’t approve and for those girls going out maybe their only alternative. I talk a lot about the supportive wives we have in the group but we do have a few members who wives are not supportive but tolerate it as long as they do it someplace else and they don’t have to see it. for these girls they usually go to Victoria’s over the Rainbow and get ready and then would go out and meet us for the night. The virus and shut down has been really hard on them the past year.

This led me to one of are topics of discussion, starting our Wednesday nights dinners again. The virus numbers are down and the number of people being vaccinated are going up and yes, a lot of our group has already got the vaccine, I was lucky enough to get mine back the end of January and fist of February. Now I don’t want to get political here but will give my 2 cents on the vaccine, first yes there are some risks with the vaccine as with all medicine but you have to weigh the risk to reward and for me the reward of the vaccine outweighed any risks, I was worried about but everyone hast to make this decision for themselves. Thee second point is it is your choice; I do not think the government has the right to demand people get it or punish them if they don’t. If I have the vaccine and you don’ I am protected and you assume the risk, just like the risk of being in car wreck if you drive. I support everyone’s right to decide for themselves. Well let’s get back to the blog. Now our group has done Wednesday night dinners out for probably 10 years and we would like to get back to that but we started doing these zoom meetings on Wednesdays one year ago because we couldn’t go out in person and this was a way to help us get through this till, we could go out again. Well as I said there is a lot of value and good that has come out of these meeting online and we don’t want to stop them but we can’t do both on the same night or you have to chose between the two and I personally want to do both so we need to come up with another night. now I figured Saturday nights were out as yes, I would like to go out on Saturday nights once things open again like to the Escape again. Sundays I spend with my mom so I kind of ruled that night out and Thursday is the night the Seattle group does their thing which really only left Monday, Tuesday and Friday so I asked the girls what their thoughts were and I was surprised as it went pretty well, the group seemed to rule out Tuesday as they felt 2 nights in a row might be hard so we settled on Monday’s at least for now. So, I will send this out to the whole group and see what their thoughts are. Now this will probably not start till May as we do want to give it a little more time and I am thinking of maybe in mid-March doing a Zoom meeting for a few weeks on both Monday and Wednesday to get the switch over going.

Well back to our group tonight, one of the highlights was Karla tonight, she actually leaves for Thailand this coming Monday for her SRS surgeries and her mother is going with her and tonight her mom was with her and joined her on the zoom meeting for a little while. Karla’s mom is awesome not only supportive of her but proud of her and is going with her to Thailand to be with her during her surgeries. Now I have often talked about how people accept or don’t accept these changes and I don’t want to get into a big debate but I can see both sides. We always look at ourselves and what we want, need but as in everything there are two sides to every coin. What I mean by that is I will use my brother. If he came out as transgender and wanted to transition yes, I would be supportive but there would still be that part of me that would mourn the loss of my brother. Yes, he/she would still be with me and I may have a better relationship with the new person he becomes but there would still be parts of the relationship we had as brothers that would be lost. For the person transition they are becoming their true self but for others there is the gaining of a new person and the loss of the old person even though they are really the same person if that makes sense. It is like the old saying If a butterfly flutters its wings in Brazil could it cause a tornado in Texas. Everything we do has an effect on things and people, just my thoughts. We need to be who we are but we also need to think about others and how it affects them and give them the time and support just like we need. Well as I said it was awesome to meet her and for a while Jennifer’s wife joined her also. It sounds like the wives/girlfriends are going to try and join us and do a breakout of just them in our meeting the first Wednesday of April which is awesome.

Now Jennifer’s question of the night was about our experiences of coming out to someone. It was interesting to hear about it and how it went and yes there were some bad experiences but over all the majority seemed positive which was nice. Now I have never come out to someone as far as just going up and telling them. For me I do this part time and don’t plan on going full time so I don’t feel the need to tell people and this is what is right for me. Now that being said I di remember years ago the fear of being found out and what I would say and could I lie my way out of it, convince them they were wrong. Now I bring this up as it happened back in October of 2012, two of my neighbor ladies and seen me as Susan on TV over the P-Club incident and somehow recognized me guessing they recognized the woman who had been driving my car and asked me about it, and all the time I spent thinking about how to lie my way out of it didn’t even pop in my head I just admitted to it and told them I liked to spend part of my life as a women so that was my coming out to someone even though it wasn’t planned. I still have one of them as a neighbor and we get along great so it will say it went well. I don’t know if they ever told anyone but I am sure most of my neighbors know as much as I come and go as Susan and I know they have seen me in my car. The one thing that has changed over the last few years is I don’t think about how to lie my way out of it. yes, I am not going out and telling people about me but I am not hiding it either, I am jus living my life. I now go to placed near my house instead of driving miles away and I don’t worry if people are outside when I leave, yes, I use to stand on my front room watching my neighbors outside waiting for them to go inside before I left, once I did this for over an hour. If people find out they find out but I will be who I am.

It was a great night and yes, we kept everyone online till 9 pm and we still had a lot of girls by 10pm before it dropped to just 4 of us and I thin it was about 10:20 when we finally shut the meeting down so it was one of our longer ones but a very fun night and always sad to see it end. Now I am looking forward to Saturday and spending the afternoon and evening as Susan. Sorry I went a little long tonight.

Stay safe and happy and thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Saturday and some Susan time

Saturday and the end of my vacation at least the Susan part as Sunday I will spend with my mom. Now I did have a Zoom meeting at 10am on my mail side. Now I have done these as Susan before just kept my video off and I figured I would do the same today so I got up and started getting ready a little before 9am. I did take my time and tried for a good daytime look and even toned my eyebrows some with a different shape. I also wore the other earrings I bought on Thursday when I went shopping with Jennifer. It was a nice look but I still like the look from last night’s dinner with my friend’s better. Now at 10 when my meeting started, I was just finishing getting ready. Now I have done these before and there are usually a few without video on but today all 6 of the others had their video in so I was the only one. The meetinwg lasted till noon so when I got done, I made a quick lunch and then it was time to get a few pictures. Now the only thing I really need to do today was my weekly grocery shopping.

I watched a little TV for a while and about 1:30 I looked out and the sun was shining and it looked really nice so I decided to take a drive down by the waterfront and take a walk as Susan. I got my purse and was on my way, it only took me 15 minutes to get downtown but by this time it was raining really hard but there were people out walking with umbrellas. I was out so I drove along the water front and then over by Who Song & Larry’s where we had dinner last night as there is also a path about a mile long along then river and there were just a few people over here. Now the rain was easing up so I parked along the road for a few minutes and decided the rain had slowed just enough to get out quickly and get a few pictures. I only spent a few minutes outside before getting back in my car and driving off.

Now since I was already out, I drove to Fred Meyers to do my shopping. I got there abut 2:30 and had to park a way out as they looked really busy. It had stopped raining by now ad the sun had come back out so maybe I should have waited a little longer down by the river. I put my mask on and went in and did my shopping and I was right they were really busy so it took a little longer to get around the store. Now as I was ready to leave it was really raining hard so I stood there for a little while with other people waiting for the rain to slow down. It slowed down a little so a few of us headed for our cars and normally in my male life I would have ran but Susan just walked fast so I did get a little wet but my makeup survived.

I got home and parked in my drive as I plan to go get dinner in a little while and it had stopped raining. I put my groceries away and sat down and watched a little TV till about 5:30. Now it was time for dinner and I decided to skip McDonalds this week and go to Panda Express which I believe is a little healthier. I walked out to my car and there were 2 kids (a boy and girl) probably high school age playing basketball next door but I jus walked to my car and got in and drove off.

I got to Panda Express and went in and there was just one other person there so I was able to walk right up and order my dinner. Now I have my favorite and always order the same and the girl helping me must have remembered as she asked if I wanted sauce on the rice also which I always do. I got my dinner and left and drove back home and normally I would have pilled into the garage but the kids next door were still out shooting baskets so I just parked in my drive and got out and walked into my house. Now they were the other side of my car so probably didn’t get a good look at me but I was fine with it.

The rest of the night I just watched TV and relaxed. I did set up a zoom meeting for Wednesday night for our groups get together. It was a little after 11 when I called it a night and went up and washed away my makeup for bed. It is sad when this happen and I do look so plain without makeup and long hair. Men really have no way to express themselves that stand out. Females are just luckier as they have so many ways to express who they are and I get to share that when I am Susan.

Now I am looking forward to Wednesday night Zoom meeting. One thing I want to talk about is our dinners out as a few girls have expressed interest in getting together for dinners and want to go back to Wednesday nights the same night we do our zoom meetings. I am wondering if the ladies would mind switching or Zoom meetings to another night, I will probably send out an e-mail about this as I really want both to happen but I want to participate in both. Besides this would give me a 3rd night as Susan. I think we have time as I am guessing it would be May when we start the dinners. Something for us to talk about.

Stay safe and happy and thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Friday dinner with my friends at Who Song and Larry’s

Friday is here and my vacation is coming to an end. I did have things to do today including going over and visiting my mom this afternoon so Susan would have to wait till this evening but it was worth it as there are 5 of us going out to dinner at Who Song & Larry’s. Now this morning I did need to remove my pretty nail polish I got yesterday and I did put a couple coats of clear OPI nail envy nail strengthening formula on and my nails still look nice. I was really looking forward to tonight’s dinner as I bought a new dress and earrings yesterday when I was shopping with Jennifer and I plan to wear both tonight. I got home about 5 and started getting ready.

Now I took my time doing my makeup as I had a specific look, I wanted for going out. darker eyebrows, my purple eye shadow, false eye lashed and my bright red lipstick to match my dress. Yes, it is funny how excited I get for a new outfit for Susan or a new look. I was all ready by 6 and really liked how I looked; I will have to get one of the girls tonight to get a picture of me so I can show off my mew dress. Cassandra had texted me to see what time I was going to get to Who Song & Larry’s, our reservations are for 7 but I texted her I wanted to get there at 6:30 and have some of their cheese bean dip at the bar.

I was on my way by 6:10. As I drove, I got a text from Cassandra that traffic headed north on I-5 was at a standstill and I got caught going South at SR 500 so I am thinking they opened the bridge but I was able to get off the freeway and avoid the traffic and still get there but it was about 6:40 when I got there. The parking lot was full but I got lucky and someone pulled out as I drove in. I texted Cassandra I was there and walked in. Now there were people waiting to be seated and I went and checked in and they told me it would be 20 to 30 minutes and the sad thing was the bar area was closed due to covid-19 restrictions. Now this is the part I have trouble with. The bar area was closed because of social distancing but there were 2 groups of 4, 4 groups of 2 and me and now Cassandra plus the 3 workers at the desk standing in an area maybe 20 by 20 feet big. Now they did take a couple of the small groups in but by now Amy, Jeanie and Barb had shown up plus a few more small groups. Now we were all wearing our masks but there was no social distancing as we waited. Now Amy complimented me on my earrings so she noticed them and I will admit they do stand out but are so cute and I love getting compliments so I thanked her.

It was about 7:15 when our table was ready and we were shown in, it was right in the middle of the room but close to the fireplace. It was so wonderful to be out with my friends again and I am really looking forward to doing this more and yes, the tables were all spaced out. Our waitress came and took our drink order and I ordered some cheese bean dip as I am not a fan of salsa, when you eat here, they give you their fresh made chips and salsa to eat and I love their chips and dip and could make a meal out of that. We all talked and caught up and had a nice time. Now it was time to order dinner and I got their chicken enchilada dinner but as I kept eating the chips and dip, I really could have skipped dinner

Our food came and we had a wonderful dinner and great conversation. We talked about a lot of things, the virus and how we are handling it and feel about it and yes, we are all tired of it and can’t wait for things to be back to normal and the masks to go away. We also talked about going on a cruise again, Cassandra got a message from the cruise coordinator who set up our groups last cruise and she is offering our group a really good deal, a free drink package, unlimited Wi-Fi, a special dinner and all gratuities included free if we take a cruise in 2021 or 2022 so we are really thinking about next year. I don’t think any of us want to do it this year as we want to make sure it is safe and yes, the mask rules are gone as we really want to be seen. We talked a little about it and we are thinking an Alaskan Cruise in the summer of 2022.

We also talked about doing dinners again and we are thinking we should start them up again in small groups for those who want to go out but her lies the issue, the thought is starting the dinners up on Wednesday nights. For almost 10 years we have done Wednesday night dinners but for the last year we have been doing our zoom meetings also on Wednesday nights since we couldn’t go out. So, do we change the nights of the dinner or the zoom meetings as I think both are good for our group. Probably the easiest to change would be the Zoom meetings and as I thought about it there really is 3 options, Monday, Tuesday or Friday nights as the Seattle groups do their meetings on Thursday nights and some of them join our meetings, and I would like to start going back to the Escape on Saturday nights. Well, something to think about and maybe get the zoom groups thought and switching nights.

Now I did stand by the fire next t our table long enough to have Cassandra take a couple pictures of me in my new dress, let me know what you think of my outfit and earrings? I wish I had thought to have our waitress get a picture of our group but forgot that. Our waitress brought our bills and we paid them but we sat there and talked after dinner till almost 9:30 before we called it a night. By the way our waitress was wonderful and treated us great but then we have always gotten really good service here. It was such a wonderful night out and such a good feeling to be out with my friends. It was sad to see the evening come to an end but I am sure we will do it again soon.

Now I am looking forward to Saturday and spending most of the day as Susan, not sure what I will do as it is supposed to rain tomorrow so it may just be at home.

Stay safe and happy and no we are getting close to being back to normal. Thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Thursday Susan time and shopping with Jennifer.

It is Thursday and I have a fun day planned. I am going to meet Jennifer at Clackamas Town Center for some shopping and food. Now we were going to meet at 2pm but Jennifer scheduled herself a manicure at 1pm at Prim Nail Salon so yes, I called and scheduled myself a manicure also as it has been a while and yes, I plan to get color even though I will have to remove the color either Friday or Saturday at the latest. I started getting ready a little before 11 as I wanted to be ready no later then 12:15. I took my time doing my makeup especially on my eyes. Now I also do my contouring a little different now days, later in the day Jennifer and I were talking about it so I thought I would explain here. I use Maybelline Superstay stick foundation in Mocha shade (I see it is being discontinued which is sad) but any dark stick foundation will work. I don’t just put it on from the stick but use a cosmetic sponge and dab it on in a line from the top of my ear ¾ of the way down towards the corner of my mouth and blend it in. If it’s not dark enough I can put more on if it is too dark, I can blend out with a little more foundation. I do the same thing from the bottom of my ear down to my jaw line and along the lower side of my jaw and it works really well. I was all ready by noon and got a few pictures and then was on my way.

I got to Clackamas Town Center by 12:45 and parked by JC Penney’s and went in. was I walked in the door and saw other people in their masks I realized I left mine in the car and had to go back and get it really fast. Now Prim Nails Spa was at the opposite end of the mall from where I was so I had to hurry to get there by 1pm. I got there right before 1and Jennifer was already at the counter. Well, the lady told Jennifer it would be 20 to 30 minutes which was strange as she had made her appointment 2 days ago and the same for me so Jennifer gave the lady her phone number and we walked back down the mall to check out the other nail salon and it was busy also. Now I have never been to a nail salon on a mall before and I am guessing the bulk of their business is walk ins. We walked back down by Prim Nail spa and got there about 1:20 so we got a few pictures and sat on the bench outside waiting for them to call. At 1:45 we walked in to see how long it would be and the lady at the desk said it would be another 5 minutes so we picked out our color. Jennifer got seated at 1:55 and it was about 10 minutes later when I got seated, more than an hour after my appointment and the young lady at the desk didn’t seem bothered, we had to wait at all. The lady at the desk checking people in really seemed non interested in any of the customers that came up.

Now I was looking forward to this as I really do need a manicure. I told the lady what I wanted and she trimmed my nails and then got a bowl of water for me to put my hand in and it was cold water, normally when I have gotten a manicure it is warm. She filed my nails on the one hand which only took a couple minutes and then had me switch hands. Then she trimmed my cuticles did not push them back just used the clippers and again this was done in maybe 5 minutes. This was followed with a small dab of hand lotion on each hand and I bat she didn’t spend 30 seconds rubbing the lotion in before having me wash my hands, as I walked to the sink, I finished rubbing the hand lotion in myself. Now it was time for the nail polish and she did a good job on the polish. In all a sat down at 1:05 and my manicure was done at 1:19 a total of 14 minutes and the cost was $22. My nails looked pretty but so not worth the money and not the relaxing experience I was looking for, as sad as it is, I would not recommend this salon. When I have gone to Dream Nails of Julies nails in Vancouver it is about a ½ for a manicure and its $20.

It was now time to go get something to eat so we went to California Pizza for a late lunch, on the way my mom called so I took the call and messed up 2 of my nails getting my phone out which was sad but I will have to remove tomorrow and unless you look closely you won’t notice. Now California Pizza was not busy so we got a booth, our waitress came and took our order and yes, I had a Chicken Caesar salad to try to eat better. We had a wonderful lunch and talked the whole time. it was so nice. I had Jennifer take a picture of me at the table and I took a few of her we even got one of the waiters to get a picture of us before we put our masks back on and left.

We walked across to a store called Loft and looked around, the sizes were a little on the small size but Jennifer did find a top She wanted to try on so I waited and as I did saw a reddish cranberry sweater dress and they had a large size so I tried it on and it was just a little big. As I came out the lady asked me how it fit so I told her and checked the rest of the ones on the rack and they were all small or extra small so I was out of luck but the lady there looked around on another rack and found a medium and for $14 I couldn’t pass it up so I bought it.

We left here and walked over to ULTA and went in as Jennifer was looking for a beauty blender type sponge and yes, I love looking at cosmetics. Jennifer got what she was looking for so we walked on down to the MAC store to check things out. A really nice lady helped us even though we didn’t but anything she showed us some of there new items one being a cream shimmery gold eyeshadow which I love. During the holidays and thing, a brown eyeshadow with a shimmery gold on the lid and inner corner of the eye looks awesome and had it been back in November I probably would have bought it but not a look for summer for me but if it is still around next fall (maybe earlier) I will get one.

We walked done the mall and went into a store called Aldo which sells shoes but again most were size 7 to 9 but fu to look a. Well, they also had some jewelry and it was a buy one gets one free so I looked and fund a really cute dangly earring for $8.95 so I found a big gold hoop earring I liked and bought them. I really have too many earrings as with these I have 14 pairs so if I wear a different pair twice a week it takes me 7 weeks to wear all of them. So, my plan is to wear my new sweater dress and earrings for tomorrow’s night dinner. We walked down to Penney’s and looked at dresses and Jennifer found a couple she liked so she tried them on but they were too short. It really is hard to find dresses that fit right.

It was almost 6 now so we decided to call it a night, now Nicole brought down some clothes for me to look at and I did find a couple things that fit and I liked that I kept but now it was time to pass them on to Jennifer to look through. We moved them from my car to hers and then it was time to say goodbye, it was such a fun day, thanks Jennifer for inviting me. It took me over an hour to get home so it was 7:20 when I got there so I made a quick bite to eat and turned on my computer. The Seattle group Emerald City is having their St Patty’s day Zoom meeting at 7 and Maille invited our group to join so I decided to log in for a while. Several of their members have been joining our Wednesday night Zoom meetings so I wanted to join them. I actually know several of the girls from online. Now we had a high of 24 girls on their meeting but there were a few that logged off early and some came late so I am guessing total was 28 to 30 but they did have 3 of our group from Portland, (Jennifer, Trish and me) a few from Canada and a few from the bay Area of California. It was a fun night and I ended up staying on the meeting till 10pm. It was nice to get to know a few of those girls better and maybe once things open up again, we can get the groups together.

I also worked on my blog from today and will post first thing in the morning after I re-read it. now I am looking forward to tomorrow night’s dinner and yes, I need to go over and see my mom before so I will have to remove my pretty nail polish midafternoon. I did get one picture showing my nails, I would so love to have pretty nails all the time. Jennifer also sent me one of her pictures to post in my blog. It was a wonderful day.

Stay safe and happy and thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Wednesday Susan time and zoom meeting with friends

It is Wednesday and that means later tonight I get to spend some time in a video meeting with my friends but I also get the day as Susan or at least I thought. Well, I have been having issues with my internet and it has been getting worse and today it was bad so I decided to take my modem in to comcast and get a new one as mine is almost 6 years old so that would delay my being Susan a little bit. I also had a few other things I needed to do so I took care of them also. I got home with my new modem a little after noon. Now first of all the instructions for hooking up the new modem was horrible. I actually got it set up pretty quick but renaming it and changing the password I just had trouble figuring it out and had o go through the online help to find it. probably why when I pull up my wi-fi connection from home I see 6 that say XFINITY networks. Well, I it renamed and password changed but then there were the things I hadn’t thought about, yes, my computers were easy but I had to reconnect my Alexa Dot, my heat pump and my WYZE camera’s

It was after 2 when I started getting ready for my day as Susan. I took my time doing my makeup today as I wanted to try something new a black smokey eye look. I have done dark browns but not blacks as I think that is a hard look to pull off but today, I was going to try. For the last few weeks, I have been doing my eyebrow first and then my eye makeup and then I do my foundation and the rest of my makeup and yes, I have been using tape to get the clean crisp line for my eye shadow like in this picture. The first few times I tried this it was hard and took longer but I am getting better at it and it really takes no more time now. Now black eye shadow is a little harder to blend and get to look good but I was happy with how it turned out but I think it is more of an evening look.

I was all ready by 4pm so I had a few hours before my video meeting with my friends. Now Cassandra and I have been talking about getting together for dinner Friday evening so I called Who Song & Larry’s to see what their rules were, they do have indoor as well as outdoor dinning but groups of 6 or less so I made reservations for 6 and posted to our group to see if anyone else was interested. I got an e-mail from Jeanie saying she and Amy wanted to join us and also Barb e-mailed me so it looks like we will have 5 of us Friday night and it will be fun to get out again. Now I know a lot of people have strong views on the virus and how we deal with it but it basically comes down to 2 personal freedoms and the fact my choices and beliefs are just as important and relevant as others. If you feel you should not go out don’t if you feel that you can go out safely go out. this is how we should look at everything. If there is a movie or book you don’t like then don’t read or watch them but don’t impose your will on others. Sorry for the political statement but I am totally against cancel culture and believe everyone has a right to their views and beliefs but they also need to respect other beliefs and views. If we can all do that this country (and world) would be a better place.

I go a few pictures and then it was tome to get dinner and yes, I wanted to go out so I made a quick trip to McDonald’s to get some food and yes got a picture in my car. I really do need to cut down on my fast food and I am hoping we can start going out in small groups again now. Any way that is my goal to eat healthier and hopefully lose some weight as the last year has been hard with not being able to do things. Now I did call and talk to my Mom for a while before starting the meeting with my friends

I started the meeting just before 7 and there were a couple girls waiting, we did have a smaller group tonight and a few joined late s today is Saint Patrick’s Day and some people love this day. It was about 7:40 when everyone who would join today had signed on. We had a total of 12 tonight, Melissa, Nicole, Jeanie, Patty, Danika, Antonia, Kea, Andi, Julie, Jennifer, Danielle and me. It was nice to see all my friends again and especially Kea and Andi as they don’t get to join us that often. We all talked for a while and got caught up and had a nice time. Jennifer was one of the ladies that joined late so it was a little slow getting started. I may host these meetings but Jennifer really keeps the meetings going and gives them structure especially with her questions which we all look forward to. Now as she started late, she didn’t have a question ready but she came up with one and that was about dreams, do we dream as female or male of both.

For me I tend to dream more as Susan about being Susan and being female probably about 60% of the time. Now yes when I am dreaming, I do sometimes dream of being completely feminine in every way, other times being caught as Susan, pr being totally accepted as Susan by everyone. The one thing that sticks out in my mind is I do sleep better when I dream about Susan or being female so I guess even in my dreams being Susan is relaxing for me. Now some of the girls said they really don’t dream although we know we all do just don’t remember it. I know for me I can wake up in the night and fully remember my dream but in the morning, I can remember waking up during the night but not what my dream was about so I guess maybe it is higher than 60% I dream as Susan or maybe less but the female dreams are more memorable.

We talked a little more and got onto Drinking and for those who don’t know from my blog I don’t drink alcohol I just never cared for it or how it made me feel so it is strange I go to bars but another thing is I don’t drink coffee, I love the smell but can’t stand the taste and yet I go to Starbucks. Now I new some of the girls didn’t drink alcohol but I was sure I was the only one who didn’t drink coffee, just like I use to think I was the only male who liked to dress as a female. Well, we did a show of hands and for the ladies here tonight 6 of the 12 don’t drink alcohol and to my surprise 5 of the 1 don’t like coffee.

We all talked till after 9 before girls started signing off and we still had ½ the girls by 9:30 and tonight Jennifer stayed on late she was in the final 4 of us till almost 10pm. It came down to just Julie and I at the end and we talked a little while. Julie will be back in Portland in May and I am looking forward to seeing her as I have really missed her. We ended the meeting about 10:15 so it was a late night but still sad to see it come to an end.

Now I am Looking forward to Thursday and shopping with Jennifer and Friday and dinner with some of my friends. It has been a wonderful week so far.

Stay safe and happy and thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Monday and a full day as Susan

Now this may be a little longer of a blog and a lot more pictures. Now I had planned to sleep in till 7:30 before getting up today but I actually woke up at 5am wide awake so I got up which wasn’t what I wanted but I looked outside and there was frost on all the cars and it looked really clear out and that got me thinking about going to the beach for the day, something I have wanted to do for a while. Now they say it is supposed to rain today but right now it looks like it will be a nice day. I took my shower and started doing my makeup and yes, I took extra time, especially on my eyes. Now the eyebrow gel I use for my brows is waterproof and hard to get off but today I also used waterproof mascara and eye liner just in case it does rain and I am outside at the beach. I also did a little different shape on my lips, a little rounder and didn’t go all the way to the corner of my mouth, I was really happy with the look of my lips today, let me know what you think of my look for the day. I was all ready by 7am yes, I spent more time getting ready this morning. I got a few pictures and was on my way. Now my plan today is to drive to Lincoln City and then drive up Hwy 101 and check out some other areas along the way and get pictures before coming home through Astoria, in all a little over 300 miles but a nice day drive.

I stopped and got gas by my house and asked Google to navigate to Lincoln City and it told me I would get there at 9:22 which is just over 2 hours and I will be going through Portland during rush hour so I figured it would take longer but there really was no traffic. Now it was a nice sunny drive although in the low 30’s out and yes I did see a trace of snow going through the coast range on the side of the road. I was about 10 miles from Lincoln Coty and it started raining lightly but when I turned onto Highway 101 it started snowing yes at the beach but turned to a rain snow mix. Now I am not a big fan of big tech as I think they have too much power and should be broken up but Google maps was right on, I got to Lincoln City at 9:21. I found an overlook overlooking the coast but by now it was raining hard and I was rethinking my decision to come to the beach today but as I was here, I decided to at least get breakfast. Now as I made a left turn with a green arrow I almost got hit by an SUV. There were 2 lanes turning left and I had a big pickup truck to my left also turning left so when the light turned green we both went and as I turned a car coming north who had a red light started to turn right into me, I hit my horn and went into the other lane behind the truck to avoid him, luckily there was no other cars behind the truck turning otherwise I would have either hit him or got hit by the other car and that would have brought my day to an end quickly and not in a good way. Yes I have had one car wreck already as Susan back in 2014, you can read here. This is something that use to scare me but there is risk in everything we do every day and you just have to way the risk and decide if the risk is worth the reward or if you will let fear rule your life and this is as important today as every.

I googled IHOP to see if they had one here and it pulled up Pig’n Pancake only 2 miles away so that was my outing for the day. I got there at 9:30 and they looked busy. I parked and went in and had to wait a few minutes. While I waited 3 young ladies, probably around 20 give or take a couple years, came in and one walked right up to the lady at the front desck but the other one asked me if I was in line and I said yes so, she told her friend “this lady is in front of us” which made me feel good. I was shown to a booth by the window and yes, they were packed, every table was full but it looked like the tables were spaced out and the had plastic dividers between the booths. Now I no more then sat down and the sun came out and it looked nice outside. I ordered pancakes and eggs and was shocked when my food came and I had 6 pancakes, it was a really good breakfast and I would recommend eating here and yes, I got awesome service. It was about 10:15 when I finished and paid my bill and as I left, I walked by 3 groups of people waiting inside for tables and there were 5 more groups of people waiting outside and it is a Monday morning.

I got in my car and started to drive towards the beach and it started raining again so yes, I stopped in at Chinook Winds Casino and went in to look around. They were also busy but I did find a blackjack table for $10 so I sat down. I bought in with $50 and started playing, now I never really had a winning or losing streak, the lowest I got was $30 the highest was $80. I probably didn’t play more than 30 minutes and walked away with $60 dollars so I won $10 which covered part of my breakfast, I always like to leave with more money than I started with even if it’s only a buck or two. I walked out to my car and yes, the sun was out again so I drove a little way north on Hwy 101 and found a pullout overlooking the ocean and got out and took a couple pictures. Now I was thinking I probably should have gone the other way and started in Astoria and drove south to Lincoln City as it would have been easier to stop at the overlooks as they would have been on the same side of the road. Some are very small just a few cars spots and to stop fast and wait for traffic to cross over was not easy and was worried I could get rear ended so I had to look for the bigger ones.

I did drove out to Cape Lookout and got a few pictures, also a few of the overlooks I either drove past or stopped and just looked from my car as a few times it rained hard or had rain snow mix and twice I had hail showers. A few times I did get out in the light rain to get some pictures. I saw lots of people taking pictures of the ocean or of people with ocean behind them but I didn’t see anyone taking selfies so I tried to make it look like I was taking pictures of the ocean. Next time I do this I will have to plan it more in advance and see if one of the other girls wants to go so, we could take pictures of each other but this really was something I decided this morning. I was going to stop in Canon Beach but that was during one of the hail showers. You can also see in a few of the pictures when it wasn’t raining there was a strong wind, I did bring my hairbrush though.

Now as I got close to Seaside the sun came out again so I drove downtown by the beach and found a parking spot just 1 block north a couple 100 feet from the beach. My plan was to go and get a quick picture so I put my coat on and walked to the beach and to my surprise in the sun it was pretty warm and pretty much no wind so I got a few pictures and walked the 1 block back and checked out a few of the gift shops and there were a lot of people out not only in the shops but on the beach. Now I didn’t spend a lot of time in the stores as I had to wear my mask and I was really happy with my makeup. Now with no wind I decided to walk out on the beach as it looks like it is low tide so the beach is really wide so people are spaced out. I actually spent about 1 ½ hours on the beach and had a wonderful time just walking up and down the beach. I am sure with all the people and yes lots of kids I got some looks but I really didn’t notice as I just don’t seem to pay attention to the people around me anymore. I did try to get my pictures when I was away from people and tried to take them with the least amount of people in the background or at least far away in the background as I do want to take others privacy into account. Now Oregon has some beautiful coast lines but I have always liked Seaside probably because this is where I came when I was in high school and I have spent the most time here so I know it well.

It was about 3pm when I left here and drove up to Fort Stevens to get a few more pictures but it was really windy and rainy here so I just looked from my car. It was almost 4pm now so I needed to head home now. I again used Google maps and it told me it would be 5:38 when I got home going through Astoria, Longview and then on home. The drive home was nice and I had some sun, rain and yes one more hail shower. It was a relaxing drive home and I stopped at the McDonalds by my house to get dinner and got there at 5:40 so once again on a 2-hour trip it was within a couple minutes. It was about 6 when I got home to eat my dinner. After I ate, I decided to check my makeup and see how it held up through the day. For the most part after 12 hours and being outside in light rain, and some wind and sunshine it looked pretty good. A little bit of wear on my upper lip which is always an issue but my eye makeup and lip stick looked perfect just as it did when I left home this morning.

Now I will watch TV till bedtime and work on this blog during the commercials with the hopes of posting it first thing tomorrow morning as I want to reread it and make sure I didn’t leave anything out as it is a longer and more detailed blog. If you read the whole thing thanks, I usually try to keep them to 1,000 to 1,200 words as I think that is a good amount.

Stay safe and healthy and thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Saturday as Susan and a little drive

It is Saturday and I plan on spending the afternoon and evening as Susan. I started getting ready at noon and spent extra time on my eyes. Today I used a different foundation Revlon color stay, it is not a full coverage but has a more natural look and lasts 24 hours. I have 2 shades one that is lighter than my skin tone and one pretty close just a little darker. I used the lighter shade around my eyes and the middle of my face and the darker on the outer edge and blended in towards the middle of my face. It was so relaxing doing my makeup and I was happy with the end result. I was all dressed and ready for my day by 1:00pm and started with getting a few pictures including some outside on my deck as it is such a beautiful day out. I finished my blog from Friday and posted it and now it was time to figure out what to do for the day.

It was a little after 2 so I decided to go to Target at Jantzen Beach so I got my purse and was on my way. Now this was more about just getting out but I did need some face powder as I am almost out now. It was about 3 when I got there and went in. Now, I did walk around the store looking at a few things before heading over to the cosmetic section. I took some time and checked out the different cosmetics before getting my face powder, Cover Girl brand. I went and paid for it and left the store.

I decided to drive back downtown Vancouver and check out the waterfront although I figured it would be busier today then yesterday being a Saturday and sunny and I was right, it was packed so I drove east of the bridge and that section was also busier and wall to wall people walking along the river and today I could find no parking spots. I really just wanted to get out and get a few more pictures so I did drive around a little but no parking and other cars were also circling. Well, I gave up and drove on.

Now I hadn’t eaten yet and it was after now so it was time for dinner. I decided to go to the Wendy’s in Orchards as they have indoor dining. I got there and got a couple pictures in my car and then went in and got some food. Now they were not busy just one other lady in here with her 2 teenage daughters. I got my food and went and sat by the fireplace where I could watch the TV while I ate. Now while I was here 2 more couples came in one was older and one in there 20’s but no one seemed to pay me any attention.

It was about 5:30 when I got home. Now I just watched TV till bedtime, yes, I went to bed earlier tonight as we set our clocks ahead tonight as we lose an hour of sleep but the nice thing is it will stay light later now. It was a fun day.

Stay safe and happy with yourself and thanks for reading my blog ad be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

A little Susan time on Friday

It is Friday and yes, I am on Vacation again, still have some time to use and once again I have some things, I need to take care of and today is no exception. Today I have to get my oil changed in my car and my final inspection for my heat pump rebate from the PUD. Now this appointment is between noon and 4 and can take up to 2 hours. Which pretty much could take the whole afternoon. Now I had set my oil change for 8 am so I would have the day to be Susan but that changed or did it. Thursday night I got thinking about last Saturday when I went and got my windshield replaced with some eye makeup on and I thought about trying it to get my oil changed. Its first thing in the morning so they shouldn’t be busy and once I am checked in, I always sit at the small table facing the wall so I can set up my computer so I would have my back to people so it would only be while checking in my car in that would be the issue and I will have a mask on. I decided to get up early and do a light eye makeup look and see what it looked like and if I thought I could go get my oil changed that way.

I got up at 6:30 am as I wanted time to remove my eye makeup if I changed my mind. Now I did full mascara and I used my rose eye shadow but the lighter shades and it looked pretty and yes it was a little noticeable especially if I blinked but I figured if I kind of looked down maybe no one would notice and then I wondered what if I did a light foundation with my beauty blende as I can control how much I put on so yes I did a light layer of foundation and got carried away and added contour and blush and red lipstick although I did stop and not do my eye brows. I put my mask on to see how noticeable it was and yes if you looked at me you could tell but it was after 7:30 now and I had to get going so I got dressed and I went a head and put on my padded bra and a heavy shirt and was on my way. Now again in the car in the natural light it was noticeable but there was no going back.

I got to Toyota and put my mask on and pilled it up right to my eyes and went in. the lady checked my car in and told me it would be an hour but showed no signs she noticed anything or just didn’t care. I went into the waiting area and they were actually busy, there were 12 people waiting and the table I always sit at was full so I had to sit at one of the padded chairs which face each other so I could see the rest of the people and they could see me but from a distance. I sat here and worked on my blog from Wednesday nights zoom meeting. My car was ready a little after 9 and I was on my way and I figured since no one had said anything yet I went and made a quick stop at Home Depot and Costco to pick up a few things before going home to wait for my PUD inspection.

They showed up for my inspection a little after noon and yes I wore my mask in my house while they were here and it went well, no adjustments needed and they were done by 12:45 and I signed the paper work for my rebate and yes I don’t know if they noticed I had makeup on or not with my mask but have to believe they did so now I had the rest of the day left and it was early enough I decided to spend the rest of the day as Susan but today it would be different as I got dressed and put my wig on and got a couple pictures to see how my makeup looked from this morning when I was out as my male self. the first 2 pictures above are those. Now it was time to darken my eye shadow a little and do my brows and get a few more pictures. This gives you a good chance to see what my natural eyebrows look like compared to when I am Susan. Now what to do for the day.

I decided to take a ride down by the Vancouver waterfront where the new development is just west of the I-5 bridge. Last fall I tried to walk here but it was during the wildfires and too much smoke at that time. I got down there and there were lots of people as it was a nice day and no parking, I would have had to park a few blocks away and pay for parking so I drove over to the East side of the bridge and there were a lot of people over there also along the river and the parking lots there were full also, people must not work on Fridays. I drove further down the road and down by the condo’s there was a spot on the street so I parked as I really wanted to get some pictures so I put my purse in the trunk and took just my keys and phone and was on my way. This picture shows where I was. The middle area where the blue and red circle are, is where I parked. I decided to walk all the way down to where Who Song and Larry’s is (left side of picture where red arrow is) then walked all the way back to the far right of the picture where the other red arrow is and then back to my car in all a little over 2 miles I walked in the sun along the water front and yes I did catch a few people look at my but I am thinking it was the red lipstick as I didn’t wear a mask as I was able to stay at least 6 feet from people as a matter of fact saw very few people wearing mask but ten we were outside. I think I will do this again next week if we have a nice day but wear a more neutral color lipstick. I did stop and look out on the river a few times and even sat on several of the benches and watched people walk by. I got down here a little after 2 and it was almost 4 when I got in my car and left so I spent almost 2 hours here.

From here I stopped at the Fred Meyers down here and picked up a few things I needed and yes, some ice cream. I only picked up a couple things so it was a short stop and then I was on my way home. I stopped at Panda Express and got dinner to take home. It was just before 5 when I got home and ate dinner. The rest of the day will be at home watching TV.

Now next week I am off all week although I do have a few things to do, a couple appointments for my mom but I am hoping to get at least a little Susan time each day and if there is a nice day maybe go to the beach for the day. It will be fun although once again I will not be able to get my nails done.

Stay safe and healthy and thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Another Wednesday night zoom meeting with friends

Well, it is once again Wednesday and that means getting together with my friends in a Zoom video chat for a few hours. Right now, this is the highlight of my week as I get to see and talk with them, not the same as in person but the next best thing. This has been a hard year and I hope everyone is doing well and keeping in touch with friends and family as that is really important. I have never been a real social person at least not in my male life and it has been hard on me so I can only imagine how it has affected those who are really social. I see the affect of this on my Mom and I truly believe the isolation has done her more harm than the virus.

I got home a little after 5 and started my weekly routine of getting ready and becoming Susan for a few hours and it just makes me feel wonderful inside, it really is therapeutic for me and my life. I spent about an hour doing my makeup and getting ready, now I know some woman who hate doing makeup and hair but for me it is so relaxing and fun and just brightens my mood. It was about 6:15 when I was all ready for my evening so I had time to get some pictures and call and talk to my mom, my mom has no idea about this side of my life but I really think she would be okay with it and having a daughter part time but she is almost 93 and has short term memory issues so I see no upside to telling her at this point in her life. I know a lot of people who have come out to family and friends this year and all positive and that is wonderful for them and what was right for them. I still believe for me there is no reason to come out to people who I don’t plan on being Susan around, now that being said if someone finds out and asks me, I am not going to lie about it and I pretty much go where I want as Susan even close to home and places I go as my male self also. I have come a long way in the last 15 years.

I started the meeting just before 7 and girls were already waiting again and by 7, we had a good turnout although a couple signed on later. Tonight, we had Jennifer, Nicole, Julie, Maille, Antonia, Jeanie, Rebecca, Barb, Danielle, Melissa, Tori, Trish, Danika, Karla and me so a total of 15 for the night. it was good to see Karla make it again tonight and also Barb as it has been a while since she joined us last. It was nice to catch up with everyone and see how we are all doing and yes, we did talk about the vaccine as several of us have gotten both shots, some have gotten 1 and others are close to getting them and yes, we did talk about things opening up and maybe starting dinners again something, I would love as I so miss getting together on person. The general thought was that small groups are good so I think I will post something to out group and see if we can get something planned although it will have to be a different night then Wednesday as we all like the Zoom meetings.

Now it was time for Jennifer’s question of the week and that was, what is one thing about your feminine self you feel you are really good about and what is one thing you struggle with? Now for me it was easy as yes it was my makeup. now I have spent a lot of time on getting my makeup right, I have watched a lot of YouTube and lots of practice. Now I am happy with the way I contour my face, my eye makeup yes, I am happy with my brows even though I do different shapes and looks sometimes to mix it up. So that is what I think I am good at. The one thing I struggle with is my lips, yes, I have trouble getting the symmetrical and even, the perfect shape and yes sometimes trying to do this I end up over lining them and they look bad. Now I am sure most people do not look close enough to notice but I do when I am doing my makeup or in certain pictures. Yes, we are our own worst critics. Now I know I talk a lot about makeup and nails and yes that is my favorite part of being Susan. I know a lot of girls in our group started by wearing their mom’s or sister’s clothes but for me it was playing with my mom’s makeup. I can remember wanting to wear makeup when I was 5 or 6 and didn’t even think about trying on one of my mom’s dresses till, I was probably 11 or 12 years old.

Now we had a little wider range on this topic as we all have different things we view as our strengths and weaknesses and I missed part of it as my mom called during this time. now some of the girls thought their strengths were coordinating their outfits and yes, they are really good at it, color coordinating outfits, accessories like jewelry and scarves and yes, I realized that is one of my weaknesses although I am getting better at it. I will admit there is a lot more to do and think about getting ready as a female. The biggest choice a man faces is maybe the color of his tie if he even wears one. Women match jewelry, shoes sometimes nails and even the shades of eyeshadow and lipstick to get the perfect look. It is what makes being Susan so much fun. It was a really good question, thanks Jennifer.

We also talked a little bit about last weeks meeting where the wives / girlfriends went into their own room to talk and from what it sounds like it went really well and one of the wives found it really beneficial which is what we hoped. I really think these weekly meetings have helped us all and brought us closer together.

It was about 9 when girls started signing off but a few of us kept talking till about 9:45 before we called it a night and signed off as I do have to get up early for work tomorrow. It is always das when the night comes to an end and Susan goes away.

Stay safe and happy. Thanks for following my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.
