(haven't watched the video yet, so forgive me if this has nothing to do with it)

Although an adult can't usually produce 10 loads of laudry, a family of 20 certainly could when you start thinking about towels (both kitchen and bath towels) sheets, blankets, other linens, and clothing.

I only just started following the Duggars, but my initial impression is that Jessa is tied with Jinger for most "with it" and with the most potential for rebellion. I was watching one episode where the interviewer was asking her and her sisters if they'd every kissed a guy and Jessa was all, "Oh, yeah, I've kissed a guy," waits for the shock to sink in, and then clarifies, "Well, just my brothers." Even better the interviewer asks the girls what they would look for in a guy and Jessa says something like, "I'm lookin' for tall, dark and handsome . . . ha ha just kidding, godly blah blah blah good character blah blah blah, etc." You just know "tall, dark and handsome" was the real answer though.

Anyway, I have high hopes for Jessa based on what I've seen so far. A good sense of humor is a sign of hope in that environment.

Kids can produce a lot of laundry because they get dirty/wet and need multiple changes per day. The girls also wear too many layers, with bloomers under their long, thick denim skirts. Both the boys and the girls frequently wear two shirts too, a regular shirt and an undershirt to cover up the naughty collarbone.

I usually produce 2 or 3 loads of laundry a week. So multiply 20 by 2 (because babies won't have such big clothes so I'll go with the low end), and that's 40ish loads a week. Divide that by 6 (they probably don't do chores on Sunday) and that's about 7 loads a day. But that's the best case scenario and depending on how often they change sheets, and if they don't keep up with laundry every single day, it could easily get to 10 loads on some days.

I have seven in my house. With towels and sheets, I do 3-4 loads per day, and that even though I wear jeans, sweatshirts, etc until they are really needing a wash. So 10 loads a day sounds reasonable for their household.

Wait, I cloth diaper and they don't. Hmmmm. I dunno.

Aaah this:


Haha please tell me they are not being serious...

Ha! 'Oooooh, isn't it just so "ironic" that he's the oldest eligible boy! Ohhh, the irony!'

I liked the reasons they listed for wanting to marry JDD:

"The Duggar boys can run in jeans.

Jim Bob runs faster than children.

John David's birthday was on January 12! He's 21! yayayayay!

JD doesn't eat pork!

John David looks great in orange polo shirts. Everyone should get him an orange polo for Christmas!"

Now those are some good husbandly qualities. Running in jeans!? Talk about talent!

      Planning on scheduling my ankle surgery around Trump's Georgia trial - if I'm forced to be off my feet, I might as well be entertained.

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
