0 points, shaking feet & the Autobahn

Sign in to follow this  


A lot has happened since last week, first an most important: I passed my theoretical exam with no mistakes!

1.) Last Thursday I had my exam at 9:15am in a town nearby. We were 15 people at first, but two got send home instantly because they did not have their proof of attending theory classes. (They still have to pay the fees though!) We got each assigned a place at a round table and everyone had a tablet. I was on of the first people who were finished so I have no idea how it went for the others. I passed with 0 mistake points. 

2.) Yesterday was lesson number 24 and we drove around the town I hate. We did some parking practice and during that my left foot (the one for the coupling) began to shake like crazy. Apparently this happens a lot during lesson when you are nervous. My instructor told me to bend my foot and try to relax it a bit. It was better after that. Not much to say about the rest. I think the lesson was okay, he only told me to be nicer to the coupling. 

3.) Today was lesson 25 and we did another one of the mandatory lessons. Autobahn again. Basically going in and out. It was okay, I was afraid at first because the last time on the Autobahn was not good at all but it was better this time. I found out that talking to myself (like I do in other situations) helps. I told myself what to do. "Look in the mirror, hit the indicator, look back over shoulder, drive in after car XY, turn of indicator." I don't care what other people think, that helped! Criticism this time was the I'm too hesitant and should drive faster. 

Next lesson next week!

      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.
