Guess which idiot hurt her left little toe Monday morning? Yep, me! After the initial shock, I put ice and tape on it and the neighbouring toe. Walking hurts but thankfully not stepping on the pedal for the coupling. I tried that out as soon as I finished taking care of it. (But I informed my instructor about it anyway. But driving painless is possible. 

I then had my lesson and it went well with the toe. It didn't hurt at all, in fact driving is better than walking! We went into the neighbour town and did the usual things. Adding another part that I need for the final exam, "verkehrsgerechtes Wenden" - turning appropriately for traffic conditions. I reversed parked the car three times perfectly without help. But he was not pleased with my handling of the coupling and starting to drive. He said that I did it so well and perfectly in the beginning. I have no idea what happened and why I stopped doing it that way. He told me to concentrate a bit more on that.

He wanted to do a lesson today (Tuesday) as well, but I'm mentally done with two lessons per week, so I decided to have my next one on Wednesday. Last week I had three lessons and that was a bit too much.

In theory we discussed how to park properly. As you can imagine Germany has rules on everything, and parking too. We do not have a lot of parking space, so those rules do make sense. How much space to leave on bus stops, junctions, rail ways... Using ticket machines and the parking disc. Enough to fill 90 minutes. Parking is a huge problem in our area here, there is simply not enough parking space. We do not have mega parking lots like the US. The politic concentrates more on public transport. 

By the way, it slowly feels more "normal" to sit in a car and drive. Still so surreal, but better.

      I read something years ago that said the boobs should be several inches above the crook of the elbow. If you see Jill's boobs there, they are definitely heading for the elbow.

      I'm 64 years old, you can fold my sagging boobs in half, but I wear brassieres that keep them 2-3 inches above the crook of my arm, kind of up near the armpits, where the boobs are  generally located. It really helps the proper drape of clothing and separation of boobs and waist.

      This is not the first time we've discussed Duggar bra wearing. NOBODY, for a while, had decent undergarment support. This became much more apparent when they went to having babies and really needed more support.

      I'd say it was a BEC thing, but if Jill wants to be an "influencer", she should be putting her best foot forward. So good undergarments, decent fit, decent ironing/steaming of the outfit, correct accessories... the whole shebang.

      Stacy and Clinton used to say it on every episode! I loved What Not To Wear btw so heartbroken that they hated each other.

      So... apparently yellow pocket angel eggs are so you don't have to say "deviled" eggs like normal people? WTF!

      It's on the duggar insta

      Wut? In my family, we call 'em dressed eggs. I'm a fallen-away Catholic who married a Presbyterian preacher's son and now attend a Presbyterian Church (when I go). I have no religious objection (and neither did my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who taught me how to cook) to saying the word deviled (it's FOOD, FERGAHD'SSAKE). We just said dressed eggs.

      Could someone explain the religious reference there to a heathen Catholic? I learned Jesus died for our sins so, essentially, we'd be able to go to Heaven if we were good (7yr old EmainMacha speaking there). What do they mean by 'He died the death that we deserved if we by faith trust him as our Savior, we have the privilege of living with Him in Heaven.' I can't quite make sense of it. It makes having faith sound like a negative or something?

      There should be a full stop or a semi colon after deserved - it's a run-on sentence, but that's SOTDRT for you.

      Sierra's mom still lives in Carthage MO. She and I actually have mutual connections on LinkedIn haha! Anyway, I don't know exactly where Sierra lives, but Tonitown is like an hour and a half from Carthage.
