New photo's of Mary's (Maxwell) birthday.

I think Joe takes better pictures than Chris and Sarah. She mentions our New England weather. So they don't have TV and a newspaper, but I'm sure Stevie reads the 'net cover to cover. :doh:

ahem-ahem .... the proper nomenclature for the eldest Maxwell daughter, around here, is Poor Sarah, and that gives a clue as to why there aren't more of her birthday "party" photos. It was likely a dull event with a few animal crackers and cheesy gifts and .... oh, yes: pasted-on smiles.

The photo of Joe with his pasted-on smile listening to the old couple (in the previous blog post) makes me sad. It's the same smile that Mary has, that Anna has, that the other J-boys have when their mouths aren't making singing shapes. WeSmileToBringJoyBecauseWeHaveJoy and in fact, the only time WeDon'tSmileIsWhenWeCry over lost souls.

My guess is that they put the cameras away during Poor Sarah's day when they realized she wasn't going to act grateful for the spartan repast and cheap-ass, unimaginative gifts. Scroll back if you dare to when she opened a beautiful, quilted --- Bible cover!!!!!!! on one special day. Now, there's a photo where the polite pasted on smile does NOT reach the eyes.

Unfailingly polite and perfect. Oh, sigh. About knowing about the weather - makes sense, as they need to appear interested and invested in their pigeonscustomers across the continent.

Where are Sarah's birthday pictures?! Does she not rate? That poor woman! I want to hug her.

They don't want to emphasize the fact that she is getting older and less and less desirable as a fundie woman.

They posted them a while ago. They went to that animal park.

Lame. It kills me to think that her own family can think that way about her. How is it a forum of "heathens" can see her value as a woman, wife, mother, human, but her family can't? It breaks my heart. And it's not like she's got one foot in grave. She's thirty one. My mom had my sister at 35. My grandmother had my aunt in her 40's. I hope she doesn't think that it is too late for her to have the family that God supposedly made her for.

^^I hope that is all coherent. I have an essay, a summary, a test, and a midterm due Monday. My brain is mushy.

Poor Sarah.

I'm glad the Maxwells are out and about. I think they are now downplaying Sarah's age as she passes 30. Mary, OTOH, is at prime fundie courtship age and can talk openly of her age, show her stylish hair and trendy clothes. I feel conflicted here about the Maxwell girls. I really hope that Anna and Mary finds good husbands who won't be as crazy as their father, and yet if they do, Sarah will be probably be crushed to see her baby sisters get on with their lives and her stuck at home. It's a win-lose situation.

If either sister "escapes" through marriage, Sarah will have a route out as well. But how likely is it? They get stricter with time. It's possible no male suitor may ever be acceptable :(

Pretty sure it's not a coincidence that Sarah's "I'm so ungrateful!" post came so soon after her 31st. Poor Sarah. I'm not thrilled about turning 30 this year, but if all I had to look forward to was a Bible cover and watching my sisters-in-law living the only life I ever imagined, I'd be pretty damn ungrateful too.

Is it safe to go kayaking/canoeing in a long denim skirt?

Not really. If you flip, all that fabric will pull you down, even in a lifejacket. :snooty:

The lake they were on looks really, really calm. I doubt a kayak would flip in water that still. A lot of the pictures you can also see the bottom of the lake so if they did fall out they could just stand up. And I am also pretty sure life jackets are designed to keep a lot of weight floating. I don't think what they are doing is dangerous.

That's true. If Mary or Anna marry a less fundie guy, Sarah may hop over to live with them. However, whoever they marry will probably see this as an intrusion into Steve's "headship" so I don't see that as a viable route. My hope is that Steve will realize he can't continue to sell his family ministry if all his daughters stay single. In the fundie world, marriage for girls is the ULTIMATE goal (if not the only goal). There's no business if people think the Maxwell lifestyle leads to lifetime spinsterhood for their daughters. That's why I think Steve will eventually push for his younger daughters' marriages. He will either be less restrictive or begin letting his daughters out under chaperoned events with mixed gender groups. Something's gotta give.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
