Buffy's Commentary

If there were reality TV cameras in my house...



There would be a thread about me and you would all be mocking me relentlessly.

I thought about that earlier when I was singing the chorus of The Butt-Wiggling Song for the umpteenth time today (with accompanying choreographed dance.)

I just adore my grandpibble, but he's what one would call a lively dog.  Or a handful.  So I do what I did when my kids were small and also getting a little too rambunctious (I had 'lively' children.  No surprise as according to my mom I was a 'lively' girl myself) and that is ... out silly them.

See, sometimes the chaos and the noise makes me want to yell and get cranky.  And I don't like me that way so I subvert it with made up songs and ridiculous dance numbers.  Or sometimes puppet shows with socks and potatoes.  Or free form poetry disguised as rap battling the four legged ones.  I always win - I suck but I'm more verbal than the dogs are and the cats just ignore me.

Once, when my youngest kidult walked in while I was in the middle of signing my latest hit, "Who's My Sack of Love Potatoes?" he stopped and just stared stonefaced until I was done.  I reminded him I did this to them when they were small and his reply, 

"I know.  Sometimes I wish you'd have just smacked us instead."

I don't know where he gets his sarcasm.

I’d watch your show to get ideas. And to hear more sarcasm from your kids. 😂

      I also read TFID and joined her online book club. It was SO helpful. I don't have problems with eating anymore. I don't try to restrict my food or control my body size. I do the best I can to be healthy, but I never want to go back to my days of restriction. Ever.

      Edited to add: I lost quite a bit with WD too, but I spent most of my time lightheaded and dizzy and obsessed with food. I even went to have lab work done because of those symptoms.I guess that's what happens when you starve yourself in an effort to be thin.

      I also had a 20 plus year dieting career due to being in the military. At first my body would always go back to a certain weight, which at the time was not out of standards but WAS heavier than I "thought" I should be. EVERY TIME I would get to this certain weight, I would diet. For 20 years I tried to maintain my weight below what was natural for my body, because what was natural put me in the "overweight" category for BMI. Well, now I'm in the "obese" category and unless I go on another diet, I'm likely to stay there. I highly doubt that I'll ever go on another diet, because if I do I'll likely have to be committed to a mental health facility.

      The only criticism I have of TFID is that I don't think it's really wise to condone 'gaining a lot of weight if you need to"....that's the opposite of starving yourself.  I  know I have such a checkered history of dieting, and bulimia, that I could not apply that to myself.  Maybe just a happy medium somewhere between eating a healthy diet, and if I want to have an occasional dessert or whatever, allowing it so I don't feel deprived, which of course, leads to bingeing

      Interesting that it’s an actual KOA franchise!  Definitely seems like JB likes to work for himself, maybe there’s a current set of the next generation that wouldn’t mind that kind of structure though. If JD has worked as a deputy, and Abbie as a nurse, they might be used to rules and regulations enough. 

      But in the case of a campground being part of a franchise such as a KOA it will bring in a lot more customers than some random campground. I assume that, like the car lot, the Duggar's won't be doing any of the work they will hire someone to do that.

      Cute camping story...many years ago when our kids were elementary school aged, we took them on a Summer camping trip around the PNW region of the US. One day after doing a shopping run, a grocery bag fell out of our SUV, taking my daughter’s reading books (paperbacks with it). The bag contained the all important beers. Of course the bottles shattered and soaked the school books in the process. Both kids stood with their mouths wide open as my husband yelled, “ why did it have to be the beers”? To this day the now grown kids will both say, “why did it have to be the beers”, and laugh their asses off. He didn’t care one bit about the booze saturated,Catholic school issued, reading books, which my daughter was stunned about.

      @MayMay1123 Not that I know of.  My cousins were born at Taylor's Drain, however.  No lying, that's the name of the town.  We have Moores, Echols, Harrises, and Mumbergs.  

      The man had 19 children, I figure everyone in WV is probably related to me some how 😁 I'll have to look up Taylor's Drain, ty

      Love Overflows

      The more you love God, the easier it is to love others with the overflow of the heart. I can return love—even to others who have hurt me—because I know He loves me. Others might hurt me, but God’s opinion is so much higher on my list that it does not matter so much anymore what others may do.

      When I think about how involved He is in my life, I sometimes want to cry. Obviously, there are hurting and sad times, too, but even in the low points, my heart always runs to the Father and finds peace only in Him. As you can see, I really cannot be silent about God. It is not a good idea to get me started because I cannot quit!
