I thought it might be a good idea to have a place to write about what's going on in my life, since big things are rapidly happening.

First thing is that I'm getting married April 2016. Possibly even March. It's happened pretty fast but there's really no reason to wait since we don't want a party or a big wedding, and the sooner we're married the sooner my fiance can apply for a spouse visa and live here full time. I'm so happy and excited to marry him, I wish we could do it even sooner. I really couldn't hope to find a better partner than him <3

Second thing is that I'm disabled and live with chronic pain. I've finally managed to get in to see a pain clinic that offers comprehensive treatment. That comprehensive treatment means 5 hour sessions with everything from psychologists, psychiatrists and surgeons. Three five hour sessions. That's going to be really hard for me. I hate talking to strangers, especially strange doctors because doctors have been so fucking useless to me for the past 15 years of my life. My fiance will be able to come to my final appointment with me (thank god), and my mother will come to the first (you have to bring a relative/partner to certain appointments) but I know she's going to say stuff that will humiliate me because she has zero fucking tact.

I'm also going to have to work on fixing up my apartment that I haven't lived in for 2 years so my fiance can move into it with me. It's going to be a bit of an adjustment, going from living by myself, being on my own all day to living with a partner full time.

He has a job lined up (not that he can be paid until his spouse visa is approved) that means in a few months when his tourist visa expires he'll be out of the house most of the day. I never really saw myself as the stay at home wife type, but here I am. Hopefully we can both finish up our degrees and one day I'll be in a position to work. I don't want him to have to be the breadwinner, that's too much pressure on top of having to move half a world away. He's prepared to do it because he's wonderful, but it's not what I want.

So yeah, got to fix up the apartment. Needs tons of cleaning (which I can't do, but my family is helping). I'll have to sort a lot of my shit into boxes and put the boxes... somewhere. God knows where. It's a lot going on at once for me and it's a bit overwhelming.

On top of all that I'm really sick at the moment. Like, can't get out of bed for more than a trip to the bathroom or kitchen for a glass of water.

If anyone actually reads this (which I doubt), don't worry. I'm sure I'll be on to bitterly eviscerating episodes of A Game of Thrones in no time at all. God damn, the writing on that show...

      Do we know how long it will take the court to rule on all the things the lawyers asked?

      So Brenna Shay/Shea? Gimenez married her fiancee AJ Blankenship on September 24, 2021. Their wedding is up on youtube for people who wish to see it. (If someone else could also watch this, and verify I'm not imagining this that would be good.)

      Here's some highlights from the video:

      It's AJ's birthday so they sang "Happy Birthday" during the ceremony after the bridesmaids walked the aisle, but before the bride showed up. "AJ is getting a bride for his birthday." They haven't said how old he is, but he looks older than Brenna.

      The minister says that Brenna's dad gave Brenna purity ring when she was 14 and this was some years ago. She has kept her purity and today she is giving her ring back to her dad. Carlin Bates gave her purity ring to Evan on their wedding night. Now her sister is singing a song about giving the purity ring back to dad! The song says "God me as a gift to you and now it's time for you to give me away." 

      The preacher knows the bride through her sister-in-law and he got the name of the bride's brother (who's married to the sister-in-law) wrong.

      God used anesthesia to make Adam a bride out of Adam's rib. 

      AJ's vows are sweet. He mentions that he loves like Christ loves the church. (Ephesians 5:25) The minister uses this to make a point how it's better for a husband to love his wife because God told him too. If a man loves his wife, because she's pretty; what happens when her looks fade? I guess it never occured to this minister that a husband could love a wife for who she is.

      Brenna's vows are also self-written. She promises to submit and honor God, but she also seems to love him very much.

      There's another song that sounds like people wrote it for this couple.

      The minister preaches a long sermon at the end of the wedding after the couple has left. The minister compares trying to get into heaven without Jesus is like trying to enter the country without a passport or visa. Apparently you need your actual papers that say you have Jesus (baptismal record?).

      As fundie weddings go, this wasn't too bad. It wasn't too long, it wasn't too hateful, and the couple seemed happy. I wish them a lot of luck and happiness.

      I'm shocked she hasn't posted about the results of the Arizona audit; she seemed so eager to see what they would find. Whatever could have happened!

      There was no mention of them. No call in...nothing. Not even a feeble excuse as to their whereabouts,

      So, who led the service?  Was it just more testimonies or members performing songs, playing instruments, etc?

      That single Chrissy Teigen post on Instagram regarding the documentary already has over 1.8 million views.



      Chrissy Teigen loves to cook and loves to enjoy food for the sake of enjoying food. She has a good platform in place for countering Gwen and hopefully most of her followers arent the type that would be sucked into fad diets. Chrissy posts pics of delicious food constantly so she is actually the worst person to follow if you want to diet
