    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I really do wish they could keep barb and Jace. I mean...she is his parent, anyway. And it would royally piss Jenelle off!

    Now Cole and Randy will have to come over when she eats. She will never eat alone again! Seriously glad she's okay...but the last thing she needs is something to be anxious about, or another reason to fear being alone!

    Mercy is pretty! I love the name Marcy too. I agree...they are all good except Chastity. Thanks so much for the well wishes, guys! I really can't believe it. They emailed me this morning and asked for a phone interview! This time yesterday, I had no idea it would happen. Things can definitely change for the better in an instant!

    Thank you!!!! I sooooo hope I do! A friend worked there and retired recently, and she has nothing but glowing things to say about it. Luckily, she is a friend of my interviewer! Fingers crossed! It would be an absolutely amazing job!

    Guess what?! I had a phone interview today!!! It's a reach...a really good private school! It would be an amazing job. It's for middle school chorus, and it sounds similar to the job I had, but in a much nicer environment. I just applied the other day, and I can't believe they got back to me so quickly! Fingers crossed! I won't be too disappointed if I don't get it, because it's definitely a reach, but it would be amazing if I did!

    Thanks for the sympathy for those of us living with high temps! It's terrible! I like to go sit outside in the evenings, and last night it was 88 (felt like 95) after dark! Ahhhh!!! So thankful for the AC. I've never understood why people think summer = freedom (except for school being out). Summer is the season southerners are stuck in our house! I imagine it's how winter would be in colder climates, but our winter is delightful. High of 55, low of 35? Niiiiice.

    This makes me feel a lot better about it! I really want to try it. Plus, I think I would do better sitting in a comfy chair. It's worse to get blood drawn at the doctor's office, where you have to sit on one of those tables and totally support yourself! That's a good point that they have seen scared people before, and know what to do. I really want to try it!

    That's awesome!!! How long does it last? I've always wanted to give blood, but I am so squeamish and afraid of needles. However, every time I've had bloodwork done lately, it's seemed better and shorter than I expected. Are you sitting up or lying down when you donate? I'd really like to be able to do it, but I've always been scared.

    My dad doesn't either! He still has a flip phone! Lol!

    I doubt he reads every text, though! I just find that creepy. I know my mom's passcode and definitely pick up her phone, but I would never snoop. I just feel like your friends' privacy is important! The way this girl was saying that he reads every text she gets, and not sharing something a friend told her in confidence was "keeping things from him" made the red flags pop up everywhere! I'd laugh if anyone I was with said, "you took the phone away before I read what Emily had for lunch today! QUIT KEEPING THINGS FROM ME!!!"

    Omg that is so true! And I hate the whole "you're not married so you don't understand" crowd. I had a girl insist the other day that it's totally normal for her husband to read all her texts, because, "my loyalty is to him, and I'd never hide anything from him. You just don't understand because you're not married!" I said, "well, what if your friend confides in you that she has genital warts?" The girl insisted that it was not violating her friends' privacy for him to read their messages, and I'd understand one day. I said, "what if she specifically told you it was a secret? Or if you were a therapist and texting your patient, and him reading it was illegal?" Still the same response...they're one! They're a team! How awful of me to expect them to hide things from each other! And if your husband doesn't care about the minute details of your friends' lives, he sucks and doesn't care about you at all! i mean, one of my friends just got cheated on, and she said he was always super awkward about her seeing his phone. I do think that behavior is a red flag. But your husband isn't disinterested in you if he doesn't care what your friend ate for lunch, and IMO, a secret should remain a secret! But what do I know? I'm just too unloved to understand. (Barf)

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I really think Jeremy is a paying customer at most of these places, but wants people to think that they're sponsoring or comping him! He's soooooo important, after all.

    Yes, I remember at the time I was also taking abnormal psychology, and I found it interesting that the professor said, "most eating disorders start out as restrictive diets." That makes so much sense, because you get on a high from restricting and resisting, and then it spirals when you start hearing excessive praise...especially if you were insecure and/or unattractive to start with. I'd imagine Chelsea has always been considered attractive by most people, but she's definitely insecure. And the whole theory about restrictive diets makes sense, because I've experienced it on a smaller scale. It is so much easier to resist foods when you're seeing results, but most of us just don't have extreme personalities, so we eventually cheat on the diet, or find restricting past a certain point unsustainable. another interesting thing I have carried with me from psychology is, "don't compare yourself to people in the media. They're in the top 1% of attractiveness, and they're getting paid to look that way...AND they're so edited that even they don't actually look like that!" Chelsea actually is part of the public eye, and I hope she doesn't feel she has to compete with movie stars and reality personalities who are truly in that 1% of looks. She's a beautiful girl compared to society at large, but nobody can compete with movie stars and supermodels. They all, with very few exceptions, have the naturally reedy thin frame that Chelsea does not, and it's okay that she doesn't. I was worried about her at one point, but now she doesn't share enough about her eating habits for us to know, one way or the other. The best we can hope for is that IF there's a problem, someone close to her will spot it before it's too late.

    I had the best evening tonight!!! Went to see Hello Dolly in Charlotte, and it was amazing. If it comes to your city, go see it! It's actually my favorite musical...besides, of course, my all time favorite, the sound of music...but it's my favorite musical that I discovered as an adult, for sure. I was lucky enough to see it on Broadway last summer, as it was the only thing that's been on Broadway lately that I've been dying to see, and that was almost exactly a year ago. I had just gotten my county supplement at work and spent a lot on those Broadway tickets, but this was the exact same show, and I got a good seat for $25!!! Just slightly more than a movie and popcorn! I'm really glad these shows travel, and that some of them seem economically priced. I wanted to see phantom when it came to Charlotte a few years ago, and the cheapest seats I could find were in the $200's range. You could literally see it cheaper on Broadway! Hamilton was even more than that. @galaxychaser, weren't you also going to a show tonight?
