Here We Are

Wow. So as you can imagine, I have been busy! Rachel managed to get here on Wednesday and we have been settling in. I have been offline and avoiding the computer like the plague, which has felt like a good thing the last few nights. But here I am, ready to give you guys an update!

Things are going really well. I have really enjoyed our time together thus far. We have been spending our time cleaning up the apartment and decorating it! We’ve gone grocery shopping and she has been such a sweetheart cooking me awesome meals and being patient with me as I try to wrap my head around the whole gluten free thing, though, honestly, we still eat some awesome freaking food and it’s really not that hard of an adjustment.

We went to IKEA yesterday and bought some awesome lamps and decorations for the apartment. It looks so much better now and feels more like a home than it ever has before. Bobbie and Schatzi absolutely love Rachel and are adjusting to having more than one parent in their life! Makes it so much easier to take them out and take care of them. It really is an awesome feeling, having someone else in my life to help me and support me and be here for me.

Here are all the photos we have taken over the course of the last few days:

We got the table and lamps from IKEA and I freaking love that store. As you can see, her cat Oli (Olivia) is settling in as well! She is so adorable. I was so tired last night that I apparently passed out on Bobbie and we stayed like this for almost two hours:

I feel like I have come a long way. When I look back to pre-T and one months I hardly even recognize myself and it is like I have a twin sister or some shit. Now, as for the weekend. The weekend has been going really well. Schatzi went to the vet yesterday and she is fine. The infection is gone and she is in the clear, her skin is looking much better. I have been wiping her down with a hot cloth after she gets out of her crate to get all of the pee out of her fur and also using the spray that the vet recommended. I also think the anxiety medicine has calmed her down some.

Things have been going really well and the vet was pleased with her progress. He told me to keep up the good work and make sure that I keep wiping her down after she gets out of the crate. I would normally try something more conventional like pee pads or diapers but I really don’t think those are going to help, as she hates wearing anything on her body and she would tear up the pee pad because she sometimes digs in the crate.

If this is working, I am going to stick to it. I might try something else like a pee pad or a diaper in the future, but for now I want to go with what works. Also, less than two weeks until Rachel gets here! Yaaay! She has a few days left of work and will be on her way on the 27th! Good things are coming! And it is getting better. Thanks for reading!!!!

Update

What’s up guys? The reason I have not updated in awhile is because I have been very busy and I really don’t have a whole lot of transition related stuff going on right now. Changes are pretty few and far in between these days, I keep getting more facial hair in, more body hair, just the usual transition stuff.

I recently split up with my fiancee which is another reason as to why I have been so busy. I have been searching for a roommate for the apartment so that I can live in something other than a small studio space (which would be all that I can afford at the current time) and so that I can keep the dogs and hopefully live comfortably without having any money issues.

I started working overnights again and am working 2 am – 11 am now at my job and really like it. It’s a different experience that is for sure but I have been doing it almost two weeks now and really love it. I feel like I am more of a night owl than a day person so it all works out in the end!

It has been a little nerve wracking but I am hanging in there. I am almost 1 year 11 months on T, I will of course be making a 2 years on T video with  comparison pics and progression pics.

Here are some recent pics taken of me below:

End of No Shave November

Now I did shave once between then and now. I believe it was two weeks into November. I did not shave entirely but I used my trimmer to get stubble. I am probably going to let what I have now grow for a few more weeks and see what develops. Never know!!! Below are before/after pics.

Clean shaven:

Woot! Can’t wait to see what December brings!
