Annie and James Rushden were man and wife, until James revealed he was transsexual. Annie writes about the experience of falling in love all over again with her partner Claire. Same soul, different gift wrap.

Hi all, long time no talk. We've been doing just fine, plodding along with life. Have a house full of dogs now (6 of the monsters) and Claire is a stay at home mom for them. I'm working full time, taking out the trash, good old fashioned 1950's style life. Haha :)  Where's my dinner, wench?

We have been thinking about adopting a transgender child/teen that is in the foster care system. We put out feelers today to the agency that specializes in LGBT kids to see if they have anyone we might be able to help. The group is called Chris Kids http://www.chriskids.org. We're not rich, but we get by, and if there is someone out there that needs people like us, well, I guess the universe will put us together and it will all work out. We've done okay in that area so far, I think.

By the way, a carton of clementine oranges does not go very far when it's one piece for me, one piece for each dog. I think I averaged 2 pieces per clementine. LOL

Peace and love,
