Yeah Summer is Coming

I finally got around to putting in the window unit in my room today.  (We have central air but the way the HVAC was designed I need a window unit to cool my room as my room is at the end and it can't keep up).  I think this is about the latest I've put it in.  Usually I put it in earlier so I'm not putting it in when it's 1,000 degrees in the shade.

      Another deluded comment on Gary's South Dakota post:



      Aw, isn't that sweet? :roll:




      Gov. Kristi Noem is using COVID-19 restrictions in other states to lure businesses to relocate to South Dakota.

      In an online ad, Noem tells business owners to "grow their company" in South Dakota where government will stay out of their way.

      "When it comes to supporting growth and eliminating government heavy-handed interference, South Dakota means business," Noem said in the ad from the Governor's Office of Economic Development.

      The Republican governor says Minnesota's COVID-19-related restrictions, including a mandate to wear face masks in public buildings, has created an opportunity for businesses there to cross the border to South Dakota. Noem says in South Dakota, people's individual rights are respected and businesses won't be shut down.

      In answer to the question "Who will you serve, God or Mammon?" Kristi says, "why not both?"

      Can I use this place for Webster guesses? 

      Absolutely. I’m keeping a list for all widely discussed pregnant couples we talk about on FJ and I’m only getting the guesses from this thread. Just birth dates and names.

      i would like to lock in date guesses 2 weeks before due date which we’ve reached for Joy and Austin. Name guesses accepted until the name is announced.

      I wonder if they are Q anon believers too? I wouldn’t be surprised. I like Joy and Austin, they remind me of some of my kids — ( if they grew up non-fundie, in California) - but those kind of conspiracy theories are really popular, and shockingly easy to fall into.

      Not homemade...the brand is called Matilda Jane and it’s pretty popular with Southern mamas and definitely not cheap. It’s hard to get a good deal even second hand. It’s not quite as popular as it was five years ago, but a lot of little southern girls still wear it (and not just homeschoolers) and big bows. It’s a cultural thing. I’m kind of surprised none of the Duggar girls have gotten into the smocked dresses for their girls yet, because those are also pretty popular down south.

      Dang, those are pricey! Especially times 3 matchy outfits per post.  Wonder where the $$$ comes from? Or are they gifted? 

      I think Jessa, Josiah and JD’s kids might have the best shot at pursuing whatever interests them as far as careers. To a degree, of course. But I could see any of those couples encouraging both boys and girls to go to Community College ( or some Christian version of that ) and possibly further. I could see any of them also being okay with vocational training or working in construction. 

      Austin&Joy and Jinger & Jeremy I think might be restrictive in opposite ways. Both sets of couples seem happy in the type of lives they have, and will be happy with the kind of kids who fit those lives and share their interests- but I can’t picture JinJer being thrilled with a kid who only wanted to wrench on trucks and bounce loudly off the walls. I could see them trying to channel that energy into sports - but they seem like they’d really want to push more refined career choices on kids.

      Similarly Joy and Austin might be challenged by a fastidious, bookish child who wants a professional job. Hopefully both sets of parents are adaptable, but I don’t think it’s uncommon for even non-fundie parents to want a “fit” with their kid, and be challenged by a child with a different set of interests, goals and personality type.
