Edens Year 13: Elsie Johnson, Sad But Free

neurogirl

899 views

Wow! Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue after a long time away! Grad school was pretty crazy for me this spring but it's so good to be back! A LOT has happened in year 13 for the Edens. 

It started with Judges's birthday. Genesis, now a fully-fledged sister mom, made his cake (of course). 655655573_04-23-18_9-38-48PM.thumb.png.a04f5f4b1802fa8ce61e296ef6c0d0df.png

Judges was an inquisitive toddler and now he is a little bookworm! Let's see if he keeps to the approved texts! 552469482_04-23-18_9-57-35PM.thumb.png.8cbe855f0798197fa01c2868260c757c.png

(P.S. The first time I wrote this section I called Judges (#7) Samuel (#9). The kids are starting to become interchangeable. Thank Rufus I have a key for which kid is wearing which color!)

Though the Edens are getting to be a PITA for ME, they are still functioning remarkably well. The kids keep up with their homeschooling and their chores (even unasked), and the family still manages to eat dinner together sometimes. 396739157_04-23-18_10-05-46PM.thumb.png.9d9ad04a528f375f67d4a27dff18ad60.png1124594188_06-13-18_9-23-12PM.thumb.png.d9f29d3c0ae901bc3441a4c42c3c6e34.png

The siblings get along well, especially the eldest boys, and after work Adam enjoys playing on his new woodworking bench. As I said months ago, the Edens are doing a really bad job revealing the dangers of fundamentalism from the outside.

Most of the time.1960361921_06-11-18_8-56-02PM.thumb.png.c2aa6a897b4577c676deb5527fd08ede.png

Life was not so idyllic for the Tobiaseses. 1213760028_06-04-18_5-01-51PM.thumb.png.9ba2cdb297ecf0f3ce2409c274f754ea.png

Romano aged up into an adorable angelic munchkin, but his parents were not. happy. Elsie couldn't believe that she had followed all those stupid patriarchal rules and gave up her adolescence to serve her sister's family, all to experience infertility (based on the number of tries it took to conceive to Romano that's totally what was happening - though that may of actually been a blessing in disguise in terms of her union with Cale) AND be married to a guy who is lazy, literally insane and supposed to have authority her. Fornicate that noise.

Cale decided that if he couldn't do whatever he wanted as whoever this "headship" thing was without a wife yelling at him, then he really didn't want to do it anymore. And they divorced.

Cale kept the house, as he did buy it. Elsie Johnson got most of the money, sole custody of Romano, and her name back. She used the money from the divorce to buy herself a beautiful 3 bed 2 bath home in the Edens' neighborhood.

They didn't have a ton of money for furnishings, so the house felt a little empty,1681984932_06-11-18_8-04-22PM.thumb.png.bcb68981416ea18e406972661d0e8d87.png

but they did have each other. (And potty training.)1609736651_06-11-18_8-10-17PM.thumb.png.7ab5b81daa75891e9e7c3b3096c3505e.png

Still, it was hard. Elsie was sad about the divorce and her questions about IFB teachings. Really sad. 2081589575_06-13-18_8-25-49PM.thumb.png.c5a90351e8b931ca5fc731359f463dbd.png

After when Romano (who is now going by Romeo because the cheese reference is just too painful) was sleeping she would call the sadness hotline. 1317158008_06-13-18_8-33-24PM.thumb.png.ef90d7c2400f22064e0ac389ce5920b3.png

And as if that weren't enough, the married Edens showed up on her doorstep. Like the horny judgy couple they were.1502393241_06-13-18_8-35-33PM.thumb.png.d42f0c5892247007d9879b0e121c46e2.png

"Go back to Dad's Elsie, or come home with us. You shouldn't be living by yourself, with a kid and unmarried."

"No, I'm working at the restaurant now. I'm a strong independent woman and I don't need no man." (Okay, mayyybe I added that last part in)

1250096175_06-13-18_8-37-31PM.thumb.png.ca4578576ef04e4f40c922d91afece0c.png

"How independent are you if Romano sleeps at our house when you work nights?" (And I said...bitch??????)

"Well I really appreciate you guys taking him overnight but I guess I'll put him in daycare then, with the smelly and unlovely heathens."

"Fine, he can keep coming over. Take care of yourself."

"Fine. Thank you. How do you keep your arms so slender after so many babies?"

Eva did not answer that and Elsie went to her gorgeous new bedroom after this exchange to weep. 1604897473_06-11-18_8-16-56PM.thumb.png.6131c82886b8dff81170098e93b3c1fa.png

(She actually did, even though this picture shows her sleeping) And yes, Elsie works nights still. She's working as hard as she can for a promotion which will change her work schedule. And tries to stay as close as possible to Romano even when she needs to nap. 2101382873_06-13-18_8-46-11PM.thumb.png.1f9a2d2f0890e17545c7f078cb53b99a.png

But I think they're going to be ok. 1880779352_06-13-18_8-22-53PM.thumb.png.b2e5b0e4e8381cedaf776c60ffaa46ed.png1964677738_06-13-18_8-23-31PM.thumb.png.2de041be6a38a0640bf95d496eda1518.png

Meanwhile, back at the Edens, Joshua attempted unsuccessfully to "save" a girl with NO PANTS AT ALL, which is way worse than wearing regular sluttish pants. Nike for real. 1595265572_06-04-18_3-54-51PM_-_Copy.thumb.png.9b6e7a3dfd45a57cd36ec0dbebcd70b2.png

And Kings (baby #10, remember him?) grew into a clingy toddler,238310630_06-13-18_8-59-26PM_-_Copy.thumb.png.3f069cab10b0667639da6a759bb45fde.png

Just before Eva and Adam welcomed blessing #11 into the world, little Chronicles, on Halloween on the Eve of All Saint's Day at the end of October. 627303574_06-13-18_9-07-20PM.thumb.png.d301d0bc1a22ce9066ed83e4c46dfeb5.png

Everyone was SO EXCITED to meet her! ("Deuteronomy! Countenance now!")

And we just can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for her!

Thanks for being patient and for reading all of this if you got this far. Until next time, Edens out!

Ah I missed them! My save got overwritten (whoops) so you're on your own in the harsh world of fundamentalism now.

Glad to know Romeo is having a vaguely normal life.

@victoriasponge you know that just means you have to start another family...:whistle:

and thank you! Romano/Romeo and Elsie are having some single parent struggles at the moment but I bet when she gets a promotion a lot of that will ease up. Let’s see if any little Edens want to abandon ship to live with her...

@neurogirl haha I'm housesitting at my parents' right now with no gaming PC, but maybe when I get back to it...

Honestly, I'd pick Elsie, she doesn't have as much of a creepy fundie stare/smile going on.

      And I do wonder: with all the headlines of a medical doctor shortage. Where are they? If the courses are full- where do they go? Are they all finding places in the cities? And why don’t you even get an appointment with a specialist easily in a city? Do we really need much more doctors than 15 years ago?

      In my country, there are limited places for the education part.  Then after getting your degree you need to find a residency spot which you are not guaranteed.  If you don't get your residency, then you can't become a fully qualified doctor.  A lot of the residency locations are in the cities and so enticing doctors to the country is somewhat difficult.  Specialists I'm not 100% sure on, but I believe they are about another 10 years of education/experience on top of actually qualifying to be a doctor.  Medical advances have been significant in the last 10-30 years as well, which creates more demand on the system (as people are dying as early/are being treated rather than dying).

      I caught part of Tom’s pt 2 live chat tonight. 

      (Timestamp 23:33)

      Tom was talking about regretting not talking to Andrea more when he knew she was going to pass. He said:

      “I was so emotionally wrecked and drained. And I just wanted to run away as fast as I could. I wanted her to hurry up and (pause)...I knew she was going to die and I wanted to just get it done and over with.” 

      What the absolute HELL?!?! You wanted her to hurry up and die Tom?!?!!!!! How disgusting!!!!

      Whoa- that is so rude of him to talk like that!! I wonder if Andrea's family watch those live chat?? I bet they would be pissed if they had to hear that from Tom.

      Do her parents know???

      Probably not. The father doesn't seem to have any social media. And the mother comes off as fairly immature and simplistic in her posts. They are the ones who treated them like babies forever. The boys are 13 and 15 and they still play with a toddler's plastic farm set.

      His Facebook profile was removed. Probably because they don't allow sex offenders to use their site. Maybe someone in the family will question why it was removed.

      Jessica’s first solo flight was 7-20-2015. Is that not considered “out in the world?”

      And Susannah started midwife classes long before the end of 2017.

      The Duggar girls took midwife and doula classes. And the Duggar boys are pilots. Do you consider them unsheltered?
