What's the Day Again?

It's Spring Break week here at the Hectic Household.  With D4's wedding only 60-some days away, it's crunch time for getting the catering, venue, DJ, etc contracts signed, we have to manage our lists to smaller calendars and start sweating the small stuff.  D4 teaches, so she shares this week off with Youngest.  Her co-maids of honor took the week off as well, making my house crowded and chaotic indeed.  I don't know about the rest of y'all, but every school vacation, I easily mix up what the actual day of the week we're on.  D2's vacation started on Sunday, so just her being home was confusing enough.  La not going to school added another layer of "Hmmm...there's a disturbance in the Force here, Vi".  D3 and D4 showing up to stay for three days clinched my loss of the plot.  I found myself wandering around all this week humming a line to a song I was paraphrasing I couldn't identify.  So FRUSTRATING!  Not only did I know what day it was, I didn't know what *song* it was either.  I finally tried my hand at Google Fu, in which I discovered I have little to none.  Only D2 saved me, finally asking why I was mangling the words to Blink 182.  

 

What's today again?  What's today again?!

Blink is a great band/sound.  And I frequently ask myself the same question.  Snort...!  Sounds like you have a busy, enjoyable week :)

I love Blink too, @MarblesMom.  I'm so glad I'm not the only one who loses track of the days!  We did have a busy, but wonderful week.  I love when all the kids are together for a while again.

      Derek saying hey guys, be available to meet your wife’s needs—that’s unheard of in a lot of fundie circles. 

      I've been a part of three separate fundie groups and all three of them have spoken like this. I'm not sure where the misconception began (and I know every fundie crowd is different) but majority of fundie Christians know that the men have to be equal in meeting the woman's needs.

      As for repair people, my father-in-law was an appliance repair person and began encountering women who would not let him in because their "chaperone" wasn't there yet in his last few years of working. He was very offended by it. He was a professional and a married man devoted to his own wife. It would not have occurred to him to act as if he were neither. 

      Yes, exactly. My dad is an appliance repair man, and honestly - the thought would never cross his mind to take advantage of such situations. He's just so oblivious when it comes to those aspects.

      Baby Nova once brought me three leaves with holes poked for eyes and mouths and told me it was a family portrait. You better believe I mounted and framed it. It hung in the hallway for more than a decade until the leaves finally disintegrated.

      Acknowledgment of our children's efforts is critical to their emotional growth and well being. It seems so small to us but criticism for a "junk sculpture" can be crushing to a little person. Children are not inconveniences to work around and squeeze into the corners of our lives. They aren't meant to be dressed up and trotted out once a week for an Insta pic. Most importantly, kids should never be a prop for fragile eggshell personalities who lack internal strength. 

      What makes it even worse is that Braggie seems to enjoy her own creative outlets (home decorating) yet she squashes and belittles little Theo’s.

      Considering she showed the receipt, I don’t think she got them for free. If she did, she certainly went to great lengths attempting to pretend she paid for them herself. 

      Another thought: If she intends to become pregnant again, it makes sense to keep buying maternity clothes. However, if this is supposed to be her last baby, buying multiple dresses at 8 or 9 months pregnant seems wasteful. 

       

      Wait, did she say this?? I must have missed it. I was under the impression that she was still intending to be quiverfull.

      I love my children’s creativity. I probably praise them too much for it. Anytime my children create something, I want them to tell me all about it. I imagine so much creativity is squashed in fundieland because it doesn’t adhere to one of their many narrow views.

      In keeping with the discussion in the JRod thread, I did find something else to like about this film -- the wood boxes in the first scene:

      and the pottery in a scene near the end (not my exact style, but nice):

      But then, there's this:

      And this:

      In which Doug admires the fact that Kelly's hair went from jet black with the dye the Lenape had put on it for 10 years, to gleaming blonde (and a whole other texture!) in only one bath. Oddly, her roots are still somewhat darker.

      The Lord works in mysterious ways.
