  1. I just posted the message below in the Sister Wives forum, and I wanted to say the same here, since the same applies, and I think I may be mixing up this forum and the Sister Wives forum with my examples anyway 😄. Hello everyone! I just wanted to send a quick thanks to everyone in this forum for being a connection to the outside world for me! I live alone, am a loner at heart and love my "just me" time, but not when it's enforced, like now!! All of you have been keeping me company, and I appreciate it. I often share things that I find here, including the live cam link to all the cute animals (I shared with my entire staff, who all loved it). I can't remember who posted it to give you credit, but a lot of people on my end are enjoying it! Today's example of sharing was the awesome, succinct update post from @DOODLEBUG earlier today, which I shared with a couple of good friends. So, without getting too mushy, thank you all for being here for me! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

But the sentiment stands! I love all of my peeps in both forums.
  3. @DakotaJustice, is that for everyone, even those who haven't exhibiting any symptoms? My office finally closed its doors (100% telecommuting for us starting tomorrow). I work in Ann Arbor, MI, home to the University of Michigan, and the news just showed a shit-ton of kids out and about celebrating St. Patty's Day. Dummies.
  4. @suomi Thanks for the recommendations. I have watched all 3 videos that you posted, and for the last hour or so have been watching the young guy, JayVee. It's so sweet to wastch a young'un listen to classic music for the first time and really get into it! Fun!!
  5. I don't remember the furnishings in Meri's Vegas house. Were they stodgy? In the picture below, the chair behind her looks so stuffy, as if it belongs in her b and b. They're not terrible, just not my taste, I guess. I'm the same age as Meri, and that chair would not fit my vibe. At all. Edited to add: I just watched Meri's Vegas home tour. I actually liked most of her furnishings. Except for the dining room set, and all the crap she had in her hutch. Good grief! Also, Meri was very personable in the video. What happened, girl???
  6. I was literally just in the process of sending you a private message. I should have just acknowledged your feelings and moved on. My reaction to your comments was out of character for me, and I do apologize for my snippy responses to you.
  7. Yes, I know that, too. No offense was meant to anyone who was adopted, including you. I was snarking , as we are known to do on these boards., in this case on Kody, not his adopted children. If you feel my comment was insensitive or in poor taste, please feel free to ignore/block or report me. I'd rather not continue to engage about this. Thanks.
  8. Every time we denigrate Robyn and Kody for the seeming favoritism shown to Robyn's family, we miss properly assigning blame to ALL the parents. Or at least Janelle and Christine. If appearances are true, and we can only go by what we're shown, Janelle and Christine seem to accept table scraps (unlike Robyn) for themselves and their children, along with lessor homes, dumpy rentals, not even 1/4 of a dad, etc. Say what you will about Robyn, but she is a boss, if all that we believe about her is true. It seems that she puts her immediate family's needs above the bigger family, and gets what she wants, sister wives be damned. Shame on Christine and Janelle for accepting it.
  9. I don't think a curtained off cranny can be called a closet. Color me not impressed. Meri would do better not to post pictures of the b and b (that recent "light-filled" bathroom pic was tragic), and let the general public use their imagination. She might get more business that way.
  10. I love how matter-of-fact Dayton seems in the clips posted. I think he says "ok" when his parents tell them they have to move. I think I'm going to pass on tonight's episode. I don't want to see Kody swooping in and gallantly carrying one of his step-daughters off amidst her catching of the vapors. 🙄 GTFOH with the panic attack. Has he ever lovingly carried any of his other children like that, above the age of 3? Doubt it. Ugh.
  11. I'm praying for you all @Scarlett45.
  12. Thanks for nothing to all of you!!! I had never heard of the Bates until I stumbled onto this board because of my emerging Duggar obsession. I have just set my DVR to record Bringing Up Bates because of the bad influences here! My tv watching knows no bounds. 😛
  13. I don't know anything about the Maxwells, but read the blog post just now. At first I was very irritated because it's all about the mothers teaching the daughters about doing the dishes. But then the accompanying pictures included men doing the dishes, so now I'm confused. Which am I to believe? That the kitchen chores are shared by all? Or that the pics of the menfolk doing the work was meant to be cutesy? For the record, I read the post because I don't have many routines re: cleaning, and I'm always looking for tips. When I was a kid, my mother and older siblings (primarily my sisters) did the housework. I never had to do anything. I never cleaned a bathroom until I moved into my first apartment, after undergrad! Yes, I was pretty spoiled. Any-hoo, I digress.
  14. Oh my God! Some of the statements in that article have my blood boiling this morning. I'll never forget learning the term and concept of ethnocentricity in a college anthropology class. It's having the belief that your culture or society is superior to the next. It really opened my eyes and made me a little more conscious of not assuming that different equals bad/inferior/ignorant/wrong. I wish some of these evangelical "saviors" would take a secular anthropology class or 2. Or 20. Quote from the article about the guy who was killed after he came back from a Mexico mission: ~When he returned , he gave a short homily on his experiences. “We can’t be lukewarm,” he argued, shifting nervously but speaking with conviction. “We need to know how to defend our faith.”~ Who the heck was attacking his faith??? Missionaries seek out un-indoctrinated people - often uninvited - and try to coerce their beliefs on them. Those missionaries are the ones doing the "attacking." Ugh.
