I’ve made it through my first full week of being back in the working world, and I am no worse for the wear. I actually had a really great week. I got up 2 hours early every day to spend some time with the pups before I left…trying to get them used to the new arrangement of me not being here mornings anymore. They seem to have adapted quite easily and are waiting anxiously when I come through the door after my shift. You’d think that I had been gone a week the way Lulu tries to turn herself inside out with glee at seeing me again!
Work has gender neutral restrooms thank goodness. So no cringing as I usually do when frequenting public restrooms. Makes for a much more relaxed piss. Ha. At least I don’t have to worry about getting yelled at for going into the wrong restroom!
I’ve been “sirred” a few times mostly by the truckers, who I don’t know if they are being sarcastic or are just genuinely seeing me as male. I don’t really care, it doesn’t bother me. I can tell that it does bother some of the people that I work with though, and one spoke up to me the other day saying that even with her huge chest that she gets it too. I think that sometimes some of the truckers are just rude. It’s all that alone time spent in those huge loud trucks!
Today I had a recovery day, I think that I expended a lot of mental as well as physical energy working all week. It’s not something I was used to, so I was pretty tired come today. I slept most of the day, did some grocery shopping and just spent time relaxing around home. I like being at home alot, it’s just a place where I am most comfortable and feel I can be myself thoroughly.
Spent some time talking to a new friend on the phone tonight. It’s nice to connect with new people, learn about them and to laugh. I am so shy sometimes, I must force myself to break out of that shell at times.
Ok, I am off to do my nightly reading and petting of the pups! Take care! Peace! ~MB
