    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    Yes and no. He didn’t know what it meant when he asked JB to be his prayer partner. But he should have gotten a clue during the supervised Skype chats, the group texts, the Nepal visit when JB almost yanked Jill’s arm off moving between them when Derick put his hand on her back in a flirting manner. More clues should have arisen when he had to take children on their dates to chaperone them, when he had to participate in the silly Happy Happy song the kids sang for JB and Michelle, JBs pre-marital counseling. He knew all that wasn’t ‘normal’. However - he didn’t know about Josh. He didn’t know Jill couldn’t be left alone while he went to work, couldn’t handle college classes or actually being a missionary.

    Absolutely agree. Plus - I think they were -Encouraged( shall we say) - to put those particular words in their vows by JB and Michelle. Remember they had to do group texting even after they were engaged. Remember JB did their pre-marital counseling. Those two couldn’t have seriously discussed a thing because JB would have objected to anything he didn’t agree with. It was Jessa who first got allowed private phone calls and I think Jinger got allowed private texts. Heck Joy and Austin got a group camp out.

    Dirty John in the Media: Beyond the LA Times

    Not only announcing... she’s traveling out of the USA with him.

    I had the opposite reaction. This was the only part of the article where I applauded him. I felt he was acknowledging that the patriarchal headship philosophy they all follow could be stifling to females. I thought he was cautioning men to quit treating their wives the same way they treated their children.
  5. Probably because she had to play babysitter to the younger girls who had to sit at the ‘kids’ table.

    I won’t fault him for it if he did- but I just don’t believe he did. My husband didn’t spend the nights at the hospital after my hysterectomy and additional repairs... nor did I want him too. Nor did he want me there all night after his prostrate surgery.

    I wonder what Derick will do should he need to travel for work - conference, training, client meeting etc. Most companies are not going to be happy if wifey tags along every time or If he refuses to travel with a female co-worker.

    So Derick slept in her room at the hospital every night she was there after both C-sections? Seriously? Most fathers want to go home and get a decent night sleep before the baby comes home. I do not believe the Duggars or, any parent of two children under 5 when they try to tell me they are having sex 5-6 times a week. Children are exhausting and most people sleep instead. I understand why adults who work with children and young adults have a second adult around. However, as an adult female, I regularly meet with male coworkers and bosses. If we need the conversation to be private, we shut the damn door. I have had repairmen at my house for decades by myself/ none have accosted me yet. And since these men didn’t bring a chaperone, they were probably not fundamentalist Christian. Yet we all survived. If a friend ever calls me to ask me to come over to chaperone her repairman, I won’t be able to answer for laughing. This kind of nonsense is why the Duggars are laughed at. Finally - the Duggars are ignoring the ‘blessings from God’ that they claim each child is. Seems to me they need to look into their hearts.

    S20.E01: Heroin Hub

    and Janine’s cousin - Donna’s son. Maybe Nicole’s sisters who seem like they are actually concerned and trying to help. The best place for Janine was in that jail. Let her stay there for a while longer and then go to treatment. I say this above after I watched episode two. I cannot believe Nicole has seven children ranging in age from two( adopted out of the family already? ) to 19.

    True- but they could still mention how grateful they are to him even if they don’t post photos. A casual comment about him not liking to have pictures shared would help too.

    I haven’t a problem with Bawpaw being the one to put it together- except Jill is supposed to have been taught how to operate tools since she was a small child. Didn’t she post a picture of herself and a friend putting cabinet doors on? My real issue is that Bawpaw gets a photo of himself bending over and face not visible, while a deceased man she has never met, Derick’s Dad, gets a full length photo, birthday wishes, and a zillion hashtags. It’s not that she shouldn’t acknowledge Mr Dillard, but that she should make a much greater effort to acknowledge Mr Byrum than she does. That man does so much for them and has since before Derick and Jills wedding,

    Being that the TV is like 5 feet from the laptop, I am sure Izzy knows how to turn it on. Why force everyone to watch the small laptop screen with the crappy audio?

    It’s so hard to find anything interesting to say about the Duggar’s. They seem to have now become famous for being famous. Sort of like a fundy Paris and Nicole. How long do you think it will take for the Duggar’s to follow them down to road to obscurity?

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    I try to tell myself that they are just holding the fabric tight under the belly so they can display how ‘big pregnant’ they are. I hate that phrase, by the way. Lauren is a child having a child. I’m sure she thinks pregnancy is the most difficult phase of life. The rest of us know the most difficult phase is later - when/if your child is seriously ill, injured, or in the ICU. I hope she’s more mature when the difficult events of motherhood happen.

    The InBetween

    I enjoyed Timeless, except for Lucy, who I thought was an extremely boring lead. However Timeless had enough other interesting and humorous characters to make up for it. Timeless was meant to be exactly what it was- I didn’t think it needed to be ‘dark’. This show, other than Ed and some of the ghosts, the characters are boring and humorless. It’s so bleak that I swear it’s almost filmed in black and white. Yet I watch anyway.
