Oh, the excitement. You'd think they were on the verge of announcing the second coming.

(One does have to wonder about the latest pictures - one of Stevehovah and Terified, and a separate one of Poor Sarah. Given that the accompanying Bible verse is all about denying worldly lusts, is there a snowball's chance in Hell that they're about to announce a courtship for her?)

Yawn! I haven't been this excited since the pray away depression book came out!

Since there is a picture of Sarah, I'm guessing it will be something along the lines of "embracing spinsterhood".

I can hardly contain my excitement. I'll be on pins and needles all night.

I'm already planning a celebratory lunch of a meatless burrito and two animal crackers, washed down with as much Pepsi tequila as I can find.

10 a.m. CST?

1) Has Daylight Saving Time already ended in Leavenworth?

2) Well, bless me, I have a hot date with Midsummer Night's Dream scheduled for that time. I'll have to miss it. *wipes invisible tear*

Ha! I didn't catch that either until you pointed it out just now.

If it's CST I'll be out of my meeting, sweet...

I wonder if there is a special ChorePack for spinsterhood? I'll bet Steve and Teri's book is something about courtship or seasons of life. And I'm guessing Sarah isn't the one that's been a'courtin', but that John Marie and Anna have some kind of announcement. I think the photo of Poor Sarah is just there because she's releasing another riveting Moody book. About courtship. Or spinsterhood.

I'm starting to think the new book is related to raising daughters? The Maxwells talked about writing a "Preparing Daughters" type of book in the past. Maybe they finally did it. Of course, the problem is they have not been able to marry off any girls, so the book may appear incomplete. I am skeptical it's a courting book because their most recent courtship was a bust. Plus, courting books seems geared towards fundie girls, and none of the Maxwell girls have even courted. It may even be another homeschooling book, or a book about rules and making life as bland as possible. Only a few more hours and we'll all know!!!!!

The family's attempt at building up excitement is so juvenile and heavy handed it's almost laughable. Of course, what do you expect from children who've never been exposed to ads, commercials, creativity or independent thinking? Their only experience with "advertising" is when Papa tells them to get excited because something exciting is about to come their way! I think that's the only way the Maxwell children know how to build excitement----when someone else tells them to do so. If this is the level of their creative output, it makes me wonder how they plan on continuing to sell their business after one or both parents becomes too ill to travel?

Oh, not to be worried! The children have been well-trained to carry on the family business. And at least John knows how to drive the bus.

Didn't they have a courtship seminar in the works before Amanda Munck ran away? If so there was probably meant to be an accompanying book. They might be releasing it even without a current courtship, based on the "success" of Chris and Nathan's marriages, or maybe John-Marie has finally conformed his theology enough to fit to Steve's narrow definition of a good Christian man worthy of a Reversal Maxwell maiden.

IIRC, there was a courtship session in the works, but when Elizabeth Munck jumped ship with her wedding to Joseph, I believe it was put on the back burner. I believe their wedding was to occur just before one of the Maxwell's traveling circuses, and that Joseph and Elizabeth were to go along for the ride and provide testimony for courtship at the new conference session. When they broke up a week before the wedding (and just hours before her bridal shower), I surmise they had to quickly find a back-up plan.

ETA: Amanda Munck is Elizabeth's younger sister who was married to someone a few months ago. She was never engaged to a Maxwell.

As suspected, it's a new Moody book, as well as a book on being a good conversationalist or something. The sample pages from the Moody book see the family visiting a drive-through wildlife park. I can't imagine where the idea for this may have come from...

It's up, and it's called "Making Great Conversationalists."

Making Great Conversationalists has the potential to change your child’s life. Within this book’s pages, Steve and Teri unlock the keys to dynamic conversation. The ability to effectively converse prepares your child for courtship, influences his job potential, and could even help him lead someone to the Lord.

Don’t think that one-word replies, short answers, and lack of interest in others is normal for a child’s conversation. It’s not, and you can do something to change it.

Chapter after chapter of Making Great Conversationalists is filled with information, real-life examples, how-tos, and so much more that has the potential to make your child an incredible conversationalist. In addition, each chapter concludes with teaching notes and practical projects that will allow you to apply what you’ve read.

Would you like to help your child excel in this essential life-skill? Pre-order your book today.

Oh, and "Spring Days with the Moodys." I don't know much about the Moody books, is that a brand new one? It sounds as exciting as the other ones I've read about on FJ. *yawn*

And if you order both books, you get a free download of "Anger--Relationship Poison," a whopping $4.00 value!

      A very traumatic day in kittieland.  It was vet day again so I really needed to try to catch Bob for his first shots and dewormer.  I wasn't getting anywhere with all three in the room -- every time I put out food to lure him, the others ate it!  So finally I took advantage of Juniper and Arlo being handle-able (did I mention I've picked up Arlo once or twice now?) and I picked them each up in turn and put them in one shared carrier, and then put that carrier out of the room while I set about catching ol' Bob (I considered it a positive that Juniper and Arlo were getting a glimpse/sniff of the rest of the house while they were out there, even if they weren't in the best mood for it).
      It took me forever but I finally caught Bob.  It required me moving the futon sofa into the middle of the room so he couldn't hide behind it.  He was pretty panicked and scrambling around the room but eventually I outsmarted him (or maybe he just decided to let me think that).  I released Juniper and Arlo back into the room after Bob was safely in the carrier and we headed out to the car.
      When we got to the vet's, the vet gingerly pulled him out of the carrier with a towel, and then -- Bob escaped the vet's grip!  A comedy of errors ensued with Bob leading a chase all around the various rooms of the vet's office (thankfully not including the waiting room).  Garbage cans were upturned, and the vet himself nearly tripped over the fan cord as he tried to follow this kitten around the room.  Eventually the vet and the assistant and Bob were in a back room with the door closed to keep him in.  I heard them laughing a few times and then finally the door opened and the vet came out with Bob and a towel and a solid grip.  They promptly gave him his shots and dewormer, confirmed that he's a boy, and then thankfully put him back in the carrier.  I apologized for the mess and we left and returned home.  Oh, vet can't say if Bob is Maine coon -- he doesn't seem to have that extra ruff of neck fur to me, and he's so small (especially since he is theoretically 2 weeks older than the other two), but I would still love it if he turned out to be MC.  Of course I'll love him even if he doesn't as well.
      Back home, I knew that blocking the hiding spaces under the futon was key to getting them out where they would have to interact with me; otherwise this process of taming was going to take forever.  So while Bob rested in the carrier in the house, I boarded up the sides and back of the futon frame, and then had another comedy of errors as I tried to get both Juniper and Arlo out from under the futon at the same time so I could slide it against the wall without trapping either of them.  It took some trickery but I finally did it.  Then Bob could come back into the room.
      So, as if the trauma of the carrier/vet wasn't enough, now they are all back in their familiar room but their safe corner hiding spots have disappeared.  They have a few nook spaces where they can hang out, but nowhere that I can't reach.  They are not thrilled with this.  At all.
      But their reward for the day was some yummy cream, which led to some detailed grooming afterwards:

      Afterwards, Juniper was quick to return to her newly-found snuggler status:

      While Bob sulked.  He was soon comforted, however, by his friend Arlo:

      I'm really pleased that Arlo has allowed me to pick him up once or twice.  He's not yet approaching me, and all three of them still spook when I am moving around, but progress is happening pretty fast, and in another week or so I might feel ok about releasing them into the house (with some kittyproofing happening first, and only when I'm confident other people won't carelessly open the doors and give escape opportunities).  Maybe just a few hours at a time at first, with overnights and/or feeding still happening in the back room.  We'll see.  But -- progress!

      What kind of birthday cake do I want? 
      Me birthday is Monday. I'm torn. I kind of want one of these 'dream cakes' from a local bakery. Cake, cheesecake, and mousse. They can do any flavor combo imaginable... 
      I love coconut but I'm the only one... 
      Mint chip? Peanut butter Oreo? GAH. TOO MANY CHOICES.

      I finished the DOL mandated Office Management Systems classed graduated, yeah me. That was Thursday. The next Tuesday I'm at the career counselors office and she says you have to have 20 jobs by the end of the week. I mean, UEI doesn't ask for that, more like 6 for 2 weeks. But OH NO. The DOL is making me job hunt. I think the people on UEI are not damaged or have chronic injury related problems yet they don't have to do this.
      Plus the DOL has not approved my change of doctors. I wrote to the District Admin for SFO and I said I've jumped through every hoop you've put before me and now you won't let me see the doctor that I need to see? I've written my CE 4 times with no response. Not fair. They probably know he'll say no you can't work and it's causing damage to your cervical vertebrae and your shoulder. I have numbness that goes down my neck, across my shoulders and down to my elbows. C567. We shall see what happens. 
      First thing I do in the morning is job hunt and get my 4 or 5 out of the way. Then I can concentrate on other things. 
      Peace. From annie who's not so good.
