    This boutique has been open for how many hours? Out of 14 dresses, 11 are already out of stock. None of the dresses look very flattering.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    How in the hell can they afford a new home? Even if the house is just thrown together (to use a phrase from my parents) it 's still not cheap. Jill doesn't work, Derick won't work. How can they do this?
  3. I think Ben is like a lot of Christians - you believe, but you don't live life as narrowly as what the Duggars do. Sometimes considering the way the world is now, I hate to admit I'm a Christian because I'm liberal in my beliefs and I don't push the way I feel onto others. If Ben hadn't had a crush/lusting after Jessa, he probably would have been someone that goes to church, maybe a deacon years from now. But he would work in the real world, play video games, probably introduce his kids to video games and let his kids play peewee football or Little League.

    When I was a little kid I saw a snake on our back fence and ran SCREAMING into the house "there's a snake, there's a snake!!!!" My dad went out and told me "it's just a little garden/green snake" and tried to get me to take it. A few years later he got mad at me when we went to the zoo and I refused to walk into the reptile house. He was screaming at me that we had to stay together as a family. He never could understand my snake phobia.

    What is it with these families that make it seem like giving birth should be a party. I've never given birth, but I would want the doctor, a nurse, the father of the baby and no one else. I know quite a few women who have wanted their mother with them, but I feel like it would just be the two of us when the baby was conceived, it doesn't need to be a family party when the baby is born. Poor lil' puppy. He was stressed. If they are crazy enough to bring a puppy into this family, Christmas was NOT the time to do it. There were more people than usual as well as being on the Christmas "high." That little guy was thrown to the wolves. Count me in with those above who were thinking backyard breeder. When they said he was six weeks old, I thought he's still too young. Give the puppy a couple of more weeks with his mom and siblings. But years ago I had a rescue that they claim was nine weeks old, but the vet was thinking more about six weeks old. Josie, Josie, Josie... with all the babies born in this family how are you surprised this happened so quickly. If you had stopped by Wal-Mart on your way to Asheville you could have bought some condoms and you wouldn't have had a honeymoon baby, but I know birth control is evil. Which is worse, birth control so that you can spend some time getting to know each other or having a baby 9 months after you first spent any time alone together.

    "The View": Week Of 4/8/2019

    I have a bachelor's degree as well as obtained a paralegal certification from an ABA-accredited program. I have worked for almost 20 years as a paralegal and there's no way I could pass the bar, especially the California bar. I know the part of the law that I work in, but everything else, nope, no way, no how, I wouldn't be able to pass and I admit it. I know Kim K. is getting all of this based on her name and her dad's name. I will say "good luck" to her.

    I hate to admit it but I would wear the floral cardigan. I did look on the 3130 site, but it shows as being sold out. Agree with others who have said if Jill cut her hair it would look so much better. She could have a foot cut off and it would still be long (for most of us). I've said it before, but I have to give Jill credit for trying. Unfortunately, it backfires too often (i.e. the bathtub pictures) but at least she is trying. But Jill, as we've said about your fingernails, chipped nails do not look good. Goes for your toenails as well. I usually will just get my nails buffed when I get a manicure because I hate chipped nails.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I just looked on the Grace Austin website and saw this first thing: "Grace Community Bible Church is focused on the verse-by-verse (expository) teaching of the Bible, stressing both corporate and individual study of Scripture, in order to help each believer mature in the knowledge of God and understanding of the faith (Eph 4:11-16)." It reminded me of a Bible Study I went to one time where everyone would read a verse and then the minister's wife would tell everyone what SHE thought it meant. Yeah, never went back.

    I kept wanting Chef Tim to tell Erin, "here's a hair tie. Pull your hair back while we are in the kitchen."

    These Are the Previews and Sneak Peeks

    I've been wanting Miguel's backstory since they did Deja's backstory. I want to find out what happened during his first marriage. How did Jack's death affect him? What happened during the time between that and when Rebecca friended him on Facebook.

    In the "real" world, yes, wives would be and could be working to help support their families, but in the Godhard world, the husband is supposed to be the only one working while the wife stays home, ready to be joyfully available at any time, and raising the kids (until they can hand them off to an older sibling). I think since Izzy's birth, Jill has been suffering from depression. She married the first guy that paid any attention to her and got pregnant within a week or so after her wedding. She probably thought everything was falling into place. Then Izzy was late, she had a botched home birth plan, and had to have a C-section. After that, her husband had surgery on this mouth that did not end up the way they believed it would. She went to Danger America with Derick. My thought is she didn't mind the idea of being a missionary's wife as long as after a week she could go back home and it didn't happen this time. We have no idea what really happened to her during that time. If it was an actual serious issue, attack, or just the shower holder (or whatever it was) falling off the wall. No one really knows what happened during Sam's birth. Derick goes off the rails on Twitter and quits the show (or a more reasonable thought is that TLC let him go). He goes to the church ministry school or whatever, he doesn't find a job, and now he's in law school Derick is too busy being a student, a pretend missionary, or whatever and not supporting his family. Derick does not want to work and he will do whatever it takes not to support his family. JIll's life is nothing like what Gothard and JB and Michelle brought her up to think it would be like. In her world the husband is supposed to support the family and it's not happening in her life. She is not going to be having 19 kids like her mom did. Like many of us, life is not what she was brought up thinking it would be. However, she doesn't know how to adjust her thoughts and figure out "plan B."

    I worked in a now-defunct clothing store while I was in college. One day our area had an ice storm (Tennessee is more likely to have ice than snow) and for a lot of people the electricity was off. Thank goodness I wasn't supposed to work that day because I couldn't / wouldn't have gone into work. But those people who did call in ended up being fired by the manager because they were supposed to come into work. How many people were going to go shopping for clothes during an ice storm? Then a few years after that I was working 2nd shift in another job (not retail) and another episode of ice/snow. At 7:30 one of the day managers called and asked why we were still there. Ummm, the main manager never called to say it was OK to leave. They finally let us leave at 10:00 (2 hours early). It took me 5 1/2 hours to drive what was normally at 15-minute drive. The next day I called into my direct manager. HIs first words were "how long did it take you to get home?" When I told him, he said "I"ll see you tomorrow."

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Way back in the day when I was in college, I had to take a speech class for my major. One of the guys in the class was studying theology and wanted to be a preacher (this was a public university so that always seemed a little odd to me). Anyway our speeches were supposed to last between 3-5 minutes. His speeches, no matter the topic, lasted over 30 minutes. Finally the professor stopped putting him early in the class. All I could think was "I feel sorry for your congregation" because the speeches went on and on and on and were BORING. I attempted to watch one of Jeremy's sermons and it reminded me of this guy. He goes on and on and on without anything interesting.

    I would feel sorry for any secretary or paralegal that had to work with Derick. He would probably think he's so much smarter because he's a first-year law student than someone who has been a secretary or paralegal for over 15 years. Also, law firms usually have a few parties during the summer for the law clerks. I'm in Atlanta, so there's usually a Braves game and then one or two after-hours gatherings at a local bar. I cannot imagine Jill fitting in in a situation like that. Travis Story's law firm would be a better fit for Derick (and Jill).

    Law students during the summer usually work as a law clerk in a law firm to give them an idea of what working in a law firm would consist of. I work in a law firm, so that's what I think about. I'm sure there are other options, maybe in the DA's office or PD's office.
