    Mama's Family

    Mama's Family is currently on Amazon Prime for only $54.69. My husband got it for me a few years ago, and this is, by far, the cheapest I've seen it go.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    He sits beside Becky in the Third Row and competes with her to see who will win Derick over first. Maybe he can ask the old D if he owns any other t-shirt.

    The Lonely Js Club: Jana, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason and James

    Whether Jana is happy or not is something I don't think we'll ever know. She's stuck between a rock and hell. If she revolts from the family, she'll be shunned, which might not be a bad thing after all. If she stays, well, we know what will happen. I cannot fathom what her current life is like. At 29 years old, I had been married for 6 years, made 3 moves (one out-of-state), and owned my home for two years. At that point, I was a SAHW, and if I hadn't miscarried our only pregnancy, I would have been baking our baby. I just hope for her sake that Jana is happy. There's a cheesy commercial that used to be played that had a quote about how the world equally distributes talent, but it does not equally distribute opportunity. These kids were robbed of so much by their narcissistic parents. Education, true & pure love, and the simple chance of being individuals.

    Jinger really needs to teach Jill this one. If we had a date night planned for anything fancier than a chain and Mr. Six showed up in Dreck's clothes, I would kick his ass into his closet & tell him to try again. We did a Valentine's Day cruise around Baltimore's Inner Harbor last year, and he was in a full suit. At the very least, Derrick could have put on a dress shirt and pants.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Depending on what you're looking for, Target has some beautiful quilts online starting around $50. I actually saw one today that was on clearance for $35 in the store. A few years ago, my mother-in-law wanted a new quilt. She is quite crafty but didn't want to tackle it herself. She ended up going to Lancaster (PA) to get a handmade Amish quilt. I want to say she paid in the $200 range, but it's stunningly beautiful. I'm kinda hoping she decides to get a new one soon so we can get that one ๐Ÿ˜

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Mr. Six has an Apple Watch, and he loves it. The only time he takes it off is to charge it overnight and to shower. While they're not waterproof, they are water resistant. Apple will be launching the next series later this year, and they generally put new stuff out in September. They will also be coming out with iOS 13 (for all Apple devices), and the Watch is getting some pretty big improvements since the 4 series came out. We're a strict Apple household with numerous devices between us, and I'm a not so closeted tech geek. I watch the World Wide Development Conference every time, and I've been known to take notes. I think I need help. Please send Siri ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    Alex, I'll take "Lauren & Si have a girl, give her a name that's derived from Mary, and the whole family says Mary has come to life as said baby girl". Oh, and for $500, please. Lauren is exhausting, and she will be pregnant for as long as April the giraffe.
  9. I was heartbroken reading Amy's post. I was the only grandchild for my maternal grandma, and she lived with us my whole life. Losing her was the greatest pain I had ever known until I lost my dad. Looking at the picture Anna posted from Christmas and comparing it to the pic with Ivy, you can see the decline in Mary's health. I hope for her sake, and that of her baby, Amy is kind to herself in the coming days and weeks. Alert should be fined for copyright infringement when it comes to their little ceremony. The US military came up with that stuff first, and they do it much better. And Lauren sweetie? Tend to your husband's needs and grief. Take your 2-hour old baby bump and sit your ass down.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    *At nightly bible study with Dreck* "Jill why don't you look over this passage while I law school." ---15 minutes later--- "Babe, I can't understand. Someone is talking about getting a job. What exactly that means?"

    Or, in Jana's case, it's probably Duggers and dicks.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Brian-I'm so sorry to hear about your sister's house. I am so glad to hear they are ok though. Calico-Please know you are in my thoughts. I'm very sorry to hear about your dad's fall. It has to be a huge relief to know you and your brother are on the same page. Please take care of yourself! Barb-thanks so much! You are right, pain does suck. Monkey balls. Hope you all are safe! I made it through the infusion just fine this morning, and the "normal" pain I was expecting hit me around 200pm. I'm also getting nerve pain when I go from a standing position to sitting down. It's happened before, but damn. It hurts like a son of a bitch. Mr. Six left work around 400pm, and after discovering Taco Hell didn't have what we wanted, he stopped at Arby's instead. That was 487931 calories I didn't need. We got hit with a hell of a storm that left damage in our development. Giant branches were on the road, we had hail for nearly 2 minutes, one neighbor lost a portion of his fence, and the mister found one of our shutters. Down the street. It's now in the kitchen. Thankfully, I don't think there are any injuries. It wasn't a tornado, but it wasn't a normal thunderstorm either. We went through Hurricane Sandy with less damage than today. The weather is now officially scary.๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

    Evening all! I hope everyone is safe, sound, and undamaged from all the storms. A confirmed tornado touched down about 1.5 miles from my mom's house in PA, but thankfully, there were no injuries. Another one hit Columbia, Maryland at the same time Mr. Six was trying to get home from DC last Thursday. Tomorrow is my iron infusion, and I am sooo not feeling it. I'm not worried about the procedure itself, it's the knowing of what's to come afterward. After being sick for nearly 10 years, blood draws/injections do not phase me. I'm to the point that if the person is good at their job, I don't even feel the needle anymore. But, I know the bone & joint pain that is to come tomorrow afternoon/evening. Taco Hell is making our dinner, and my reward will be cinnamon churros. I need to make a Target run before my appointment to grab a birthday card and gift for Mr. Six. I also want to find a Father's Day card from the cats for him as well. I always joke that he's my kitty daddy. Hope you all have a lovely (and safe) rest of the week!

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Evening all. I am still, once again, finding myself in a flare ๐Ÿ˜ž This has to end by Tuesday night because the thought of having this iron infusion done Wednesday morning AND dealing with this level of pain, it's all going to set me in the frazzled zone really quickly. I've already convinced Mr. Six to grab dinner home that night, and Thursday meal will be an easy one for me to handle. Between the lovely (read: barfy) metallic taste in my mouth and toss in some bone/muscle/joint pain from the infusion itself, I'm not looking forward to it. I also have 2 other huge errands to run the same day. I'm seriously wondering if I can have my meds delivered Wednesday afternoon/evening by the pharmacy? Hmmm? I must call tomorrow to verify. Hope everyone had a nice, quiet, loud, party-hardy Saturday! Tootles until tomorrow!

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I'm actually heading up to bed in a few minutes, but I did want to drop by and say thank you for all the love, well-wishes and support you have all shown. Being in this particular community, I feel like I have a ton on supporters, which gives me an extra boost to my day. Just for a short reference, IP is just a shortened name for Intractable Pain. I was able to find an easy (meaning quick) article on Wiki, and it's pretty accurate, at least in my situation. I will try to be around more tomorrow to answer any more questions, but I will leave the short Wiki article in question. This diagnosis came about from one of the ER docs I saw years ago, and I am still frightened by it :(
