Ashley's last post (Stay at home daughter)

Recommended Posts

Did you see Ashley's last post? It's about crafting an headband, which is not the interesting point. Look at the first picture. Where is the modesty?!

She really seems to actively seek a husband. :whistle:

Btw - I have that same headband.

Not modest at all, but maybe she is one of those fundies who isn't that big on clothing modesty? She seems at least ok with going sleeveless.

Also what's with fundies and railway tracks?

The photo now shows her in a blue sweater, with no sleevelessness to be found? Seems like she's changed it, though I didn't see the "before" photo myself.

I thought the same thing. A form-fitting sweater with a wide neckline. It actually made me think about how women are punished for having curves. If she was born with a bigger bust, she could not get away with wearing that shirt in her culture.

I think the one on the train tracks is totally defrauding. I can see her thighs and *gasp* even imagine that I can see more than that.

I took a quick skim through her "modesty" section and I don't think she's being inconsistent with what she's said about modesty before by wearing a form-fitting sweater. Sure, I think her "modesty" rules are a bunch of crap, as are rules about modesty in general, and they seem somewhat arbitrary (like, if a skirt shrinks in the wash it's magically "immodest" and you should add material to it instead of taking the lazy woman's way out and pairing it with opaque leggings) but they seem to be focused on covering oneself vs. wearing loose shapeless clothing that hides one's form. I personally find it a bit strange to snark on her by assuming "fundie vision" and comparing her to some other bullshit standard of modesty to which she doesn't measure up in our estimation. I don't think she looks defrauding in the first image, I think she looks totally normal. That said, I am not an expert upon this young woman's opinions nor her apologist, so feel free to straighten me out if I'm out of line.

Please remember, sometimes after using all the creativity you can muster you wont be able to make an outfit modest. There have been many times that I’ve shown my father a dress or top, having done my best to revamp it, and he has just had to say, no. Yes, it can be very disappointing when I love the dress or top so much but Daddy can see things that I can’t and I’m thankful for his protection.

Oh, I see, the way to objectively measure modesty is to subject oneself to the sexual male gaze of one's...father?! Ewww. I feel so dirty after reading the above. Also, I feel sad. How depressing is it to think of one's body only in terms of its sexuality and repressing its potential to arouse sexual desire in others through clothing? A body is, in the end, just a body, and it's ridiculous to put all this baggage upon it.

Who just sits on the train tracks? What's going on with that dress? Is the bottom part light colored denim? It's all so confusing. It's like she woke up there in the same dress that she wore to a Motley Crue concert the night before(because if the bottom part of the dress is denim, I would've totally worn that to a Motley Crue concert back in the day!).

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      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.
