  1. I don’t like that Derick and Amy are posting about Jill’s relationship with her family. My mother and I are estranged. It’s necessary, but nonetheless painful. I can’t imagine if a third party starting posted about it on social media. Even if that person was posting about the heinous things she’s done to me, or even cryptically referenced it, I would be an anxious mess and pissed. And I don’t have the following Jill does.
  2. My sister is the youngest of five, and my stepmother’s only biological daughter. My sister is spoiled beyond belief! I’m second in the line-up, and there is no comparison between our upbringings. I am sure all of my brothers resent her. That’s just a family of five. I imagine there are all sorts of feelings in the Duggar family. Selfishly I wish we more of a glimpse of it.
  3. As much as I would like to have the warm and fuzzies, I think Famy made the post about Jill only for her own famewhoring reasons.
  4. You’d think sharing her daughter is SAVED would be more important LIVE THEATER.
  5. WTF?!?! First of all, young love. I’ve been with my husband for 21 years and married for 15. Sure, he can drive me up one wall and down another, and I can anticipate what he is going to say before he says it, but I would take a mature, tested marriage over what I thought love was on my wedding day, any day of the week. Young love is shallow and sex-driven. Twenty years in, the depths of love and trust and shared experience is fulfilling and enriching. I don’t want to say better, but it’s better. And the sex is better. Secondly, shouldn’t their culture celebrate the advantages of having a long marriage? Make a long and happy marriage the goal post and not a perpetual honeymoon marriage? Finally, considering how few people Jana knows, what the hell with knocking other long term marriages? Is she saying her parents’ marriage is better than the Caldwell’s? The Forsyth’s? I know in actuality she is just parroting back what has been said, and tsk tsk to the Duggars knocking other marriages. At least talk about it only to each other, not in front of your children, however “grown” they are. What a strange article from start to finish. Super weird Michelle was there. Interesting Jana backed off the courtship definitions. I think the Duggars realized they messed up with all this courtship business.
  6. I agree. I’ve mentioned before I always admire Mac’s hairstyles. I would love to get a hold of Snarky Anna and find out what she thinks of Jessa and Jill’s “this is real life y’all” posts or their parenting and homekeeping in general.
  7. You bring up a really good point that I hadn’t considered. Josh really has nothing to lose, and that’s not a good position for anyone to be in.
  8. I loooooooved Babysitter’s Club! And Sweet Valley Twins! Watermelon is so messy to cut! I don’t salt watermelon, but I salt apples and sometimes the other melons. Popular in my house right now is adding salt and pepper to cantaloupe. I was just looking up the recipe to watermelon rinds yesterday, @Albanyguy! Never had them as a child because I couldn’t understand they weren’t like cucumber pickles. Looking forward to trying some soon!
  9. I am getting to the age where I might need to address some facial hair, so I am LOVING wearing a mask in public!
  10. My husband had the home sleep study and now has a CPAP. He is a different person! He’s just so HAPPY now. It was life changing for him (and definitely for everyone else, too!). He has not had any problems adjusting to it, and it doesn’t bother me either.
  11. Taking my off topic response from Jessa’s thread: I am born and raised in the South, and as were my parents. I have no accent with the exception of a few words. Pecan is one 😉 Neither of my parents say “pee-can” but somehow I picked it up. It extends to two other words. On Fridays I take out the “ree-cycle.” I take care not to walk my dog on the hot “cee-ment.” In both cases I say the verb version correctly, but I have a drawl come out of nowhere it for the noun. 🤷🏻‍♀️ The other words that give me away, and I don’t know where I got this from, are “Antlanta” and the “Antlantic” ocean.
  12. When I went to the dr years ago, she presented it as: let’s get you set up with a therapist and medication WHILE we are figuring out the medical part and waiting for test results. My husband had pneumonia over Thanksgiving, and he went back to the dr in January because he was still having chest tightness and thought he had not recovered from the pneumonia. Turns out, like many others here, he had GERD. We were both surprised and had never considered it wasn’t his lungs. @Jynnan tonnix I wonder if there is a way to present to your daughter that she address her current terrible quality of life with medication and therapy while she gets it figured out why she doesn’t feel like she can breathe. In any case, I think it is so nice you have been offering to watch the baby and provide support to their family.
  13. Thank you for sharing. I know I heard Dr. Angelou read the poem when I was a child. Reading it now, I understand it much differently.
