Phew! We are back from our week-long trip to Michigan. It was pretty fantastic floating in the water on Lake Huron, not roasting to death, seeing old friends, AND.... we're engaged! I've been talking about Future Hubs as Future Hubs for several years now, and now shortly he will actually be Hubs! It kind of sucks though because on paper he's still documented as female - which means we can't legally get married. And since all of the laws in this state require surgeries in order to legally change genders, and they are all horribly painful and extremely expensive (because insurance doesn't cover what they deem to be 'elective' surgery), it doesn't look like we actually are going to be legally married for a long, long time. Like ever. But, we can still have a ceremony and we will probably next year. Silly laws, telling us we're second class citizens who don't deserve happiness or legal benefits.... oh well, what can you do.
ANYWAY. O is back to work, and she's doing great, but I am pooped and would love nothing more than a hot shower and BED. So, I will have more soon!
