Duggars by the Dozen 36: The Drought Has Ended with Jessa's Announcement

Wine time!

I wonder if they are saving up for a multiple reveal as a lead in to the new season.  Because they likely don’t have anything new to offer fans.

I still hold out hope that there wont be a new season and there will only be specials.  There are just too many of them to keep up with, and the manufactured bs just cant fly anymore.

Longtime lurker first time poster so trying to navigate the website. 

I believe they do have another season, only because of John and Abbie's wedding. I honestly believe Jessa is pregnant and waiting to announce to secure another season.

You very well could be right. Courtships, weddings and babies, that's it.

I'm thinking they are waiting until Christmas Eve. Christmas is also a possibility, but that takes away from Jesus's manufactured birthdate, so I have it on the 24th. I wouldn't be surprised if there are 2-3 announced that day.

I assume there is going to be a new season because my cable provider removed the last season from On Demand last week and I’ve noticed they tend to do this ahead of a new season coming out and then will put them back On demand once the new season starts.

I haven't seen any for Counting On. However, I believe pictures have been released from a promo shoot for the new season of Bringing Up Bates, which premieres January 3rd.

OK, maybe not a promo exactly. There was a little video released by TLC where 4 Duggar couples: Jabbie, Jostin, Joken, and JinJer wished everyone a happy Thanksgiving while holding pumpkins. If they didn't renew the show I can't see why that video would have been released. Can't remember where I got the January date from so that may be for the Bates.

We’re the women holding the pumpkins in front of their bellies?

If there is a courtship or pregnancy, they will probably make one of those "tune in on the season premiere for a big announcement" things.

As I sit enjoying my second glass of a Cabernet Sauvignon, I pondered which Duggar, Duggar in-law Or fundy friend has drank alcohol and/or enjoys an adult beverage or two? I think Josh and John have drank beer. Jessa and Ben might have tried some cocktails and Josiah, prior to Lauren might have drank.

Nah, I don't think any of them have voluntarily consumed alcohol. Jeremy, sure, almost certainly. Derick, maybe. But none of the other in-laws (all married in underage except Abbie, for starters.....) And none of the born-Duggars.

I agree, but I could see Ben, jessa, Jeremy, and jinger doing non alcoholic beer or a virgin margarita night.

I have always wondered about there oposition to alcool beverages.

But then again, I grew up Catholic, where wine is not an issue. I certainly knew a few sisters who enjoyed there little glass every night. 😆

Growing up, we split time between my grandfather’s Freewill Baptist church (evangelical but not fundie, rooted in Quaker tradition) and my grandmother’s mainline United Methodist church. Both technically prohibit/strongly discourage alcohol consumption. The basic rationale is that alcohol is an intoxicating substance, and intoxication harmful physically and spiritually. Both denominations use grape juice for communion. The Methodist church also explicitly states that grape juice for communion is more inclusive than alcohol, and people who can’t/don’t want to drink should be able to fully participate in church. In practice, members of both congregations drink occasionally, but not daily, and generally never to the point of being drunk.

I went from a predominantly Catholic area to a very Baptist area. Alcohol is a matter of salvation to a large chunk of the community and most would rather die than drink and that is so opposite of what I'm used to. Consumption is seen as a voluntary surrender of your eternal salvation and while the doctrine has never been clear to me (hi, Jewish lol) - it is a big thing. Dry weddings, dry social events, dry formal galas because even now it's taboo to drink in front of others. Unsurprisingly enough, substance and alcohol abuse is a large but unspoken  issue.

At this point I'm expecting an announcement with like three of them pregnant, all in different stages of pregnancy. How do they make yet another baby announcement interesting? Why, do three at once! Four? Five! First Jessa announces, then Kendra is like "omg y'all, me too!" and just when we think it can't get any crazier, a very pregnant Anna and slightly-showing Joy appear. It's madness!

Okay I'll stop.

I can't decide if that's speculation or a nightmare.... but I do think they're aiming for a group pregnancy...

I agree. And it’s weird and gives me the heebie jeebies. Do they call each other up to be all, “Hey I’m ovulating and we’re having sex tonight. You should have sex too. I’m going to call the others and let them know.”

Meanwhile my family is Italian Catholic-turned-atheist on one side and very liberal Jewish on the other. It ain't a NastyHobbitses Family Wedding, Christmas, or Bat Mitzvah until someone ends the night slurring a Motown standard or getting in a fight about politics.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
