Last weekend I hit a good milestone in my journey. I was referred to in the feminine pronoun by strangers twice on Saturday. Once at a small restaurant – they didn’t have coffee! Talk about blasphemy! The second at Walmart when a staff person addressed myself and a friend as ladies at the checkout. This was a very positive experience and a reassurance that my appearance is coming along nicely.
Given all the ‘fun’ with my friend’s ex being an abusive turd toward her it was good for us to have a relaxing day out and about. It will be interesting to see what happens this weekend when we go to pick up the stuff that’s still in the house. Stuff he’d promised to arrange to have moved from Montreal to the Ottawa area. He’s changed his availability for her to pick it up once he found out that her help wouldn’t be available after a certain date. We’ll get her stuff, if he decides to be difficult that’s his issue – we won’t put up with it.
