Did Someone Alter A Maxwell Schedule?!!

I think Meaghan Carver might have gotten her hands on a Maxwell scheduling book and- egads!- found it impractical for real, human person life stuff:

 

 

Quote
A few years ago, I read about scheduling every half hour or forty-five minute increment of the day, from the moment the baby’s peepers struggled opened in the morning to the last good-night kiss.

 

Surely, I thought, that would make me get more done before nine o’clock in the morning than most people do all day {remember that Army commercial? J} and ratchet my children to the top of the scholarship handout line at Harvard.

 

For the first two weeks of the school year, I drove us mad with clock-watching and guilt for our inadequacies. If a child went ten minutes over on math because they needed extra time to understand a new concept, I would totally stress. There wasn’t time to laugh or play a game or have another cup of coffee. {Gasp!}

 

Does that sound Maxwellian to the Maxwell experts?

I think it's some weird text translation thing. Someone I work with has the same thing happen when she sends email from a particular address. But that's just a guess.

I think she thinks it is a ;) or a :)

Considering her husband teaches computers at a community college, you'd think he'd fix that sort of stuff. This family is just weird.

My phone email program replaces :) with a J in incoming messages. Outlook (I think) will turn the text into an emoticon, but my phone reverts the emoticon into a J.

There are a couple of super schedulers out there besides the Maxwells -the Pearls push scheduling babies, I believe. But she definitely could have gotten a Managers of their Homes/Schools/Chores.

I wonder if anyone, besides the Maxwells, really follow a MOTH schedule? Even other fundie blogs that I have found who talk about the MOTH book, have mentioned taking some ideas from the book, but not following everything.

Re. Ezzo; The Maxwells used to be Ezzo followers, and, at least the earlier MOTH books, discussed scheduling babies.

I just love the idea of someone altering Steve's plans! Teri pushes scheduling breast feeding, doesn't she?

      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.
