Save it for Jesus


Recommended Posts

My daughter will, this year, as a senior in high school, attend her 12th Father-Daughter Dance... it will be, for my husband, an excruciating experience, as it has each time. They will get their picture taken, eat a little something, she and he will dance one or two dances, then she will run off with a screaming bunch of girls, and they will dance, gossip, tweet things, and so on. My part is relegated to helping her select the dress, altering it, and helping pick out accessories. I will also make a corsage; DH grows orchids, and her corsage has always been orchids from his collection. I will take pictures and scrapbook the event for her.

There will be no discussion of purity.. at all. Matter of fact, we both know that DD has already been sexually active. We have, rather than discussing "purity" with her, discussed how the introduction of sex into a teenage relationship can change the relationship, for good or ill, and we have encouraged her to really think about it before she decides to enter into a sexual relationship. We are grateful that she does listen, and she talks to us about stuff..

Neither one of them is looking forward to their Father-Daughter Dance tradition ending... That's THEIR time, and they do both love it.. but we all agree this "purity" stuff doesn't work.

I remember the fervent prayers I gave... "Oh, God, if I'm not pregnant this month, I SWEAR I'll never do it again..." (Sorry, God, I really thought I could NOT do it... :lol: ) and I am VERY grateful that the guilt never went so far as these authors describe..

      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.
