Maxwell 29: You Can Leave Your Vest On, Second Verse Same as the First

Recommended Posts

MamaJunebug

Waited without much impatience to see the big March 18 reveal — and I find SSDD* all over the place. I feel confident in beginning another Maxwell-free month!  It really does help my depression to steer well clear of the clan.

More random life. Bethany now wears glasses. I guess they’re reading glasses like Tina has. They celebrated birthdays. Elizabeth looks adorable. Arnold and Ellie continue to be my favourite members of the family.

No news on the book.

Random life has a picture of the Maxwell daughter-in-law in her ideal state:

I'm amazed Valentine's Day is celebrated in Maxhell.  Ellie and Arnold are still my fav Maxwells.  Prissy Chris's girls still wearing skirts over snow pants, gag me.  Forgotten Jesse is definitely looking for a wife, lots of pics of him with the kids.

I am very glad that Ellie has so far been barren.

By “Mom,” I thought she meant Teri—but they’re not awfully good at clarification.

Was just coming over here to post this same thought.  Every photo of him was with kids.  Since he's been praised for taking initiative in the past, I wonder what he's doing about finding a future Mrs.?

It's nice the kids get to read non-religious books but I can't help but notice it's "BUSY days" and not "F-word days" It's also positive that a girl gets to read a book about tractors and other Man Things.

I guess she really jumped the gun with the website. 

Edit - checked again, and it looks like she’s updated again with a “notify” for when Ellie is bred.  So I don’t know if they haven’t actually bred her yet, or if she just hasn’t conceived.

I'm pretty sure that's a top we've seen Teri wearing before. That's the only way I could tell.

That is truly sad - Chelsy was an active part of a large church community for most of her life and was really good friends with the pastors wife - she helped get their kids ready for church every Sunday and she was even one of Chelsy’s bridesmaids. Chelsy and her siblings participated in the group for young unmarried adults, the whole family did the live animal Christmas play every year, she helped organize endless showers and events..... it was obviously a huge part of her life. And then she spent months every year traveling to various churches, where her family was known and she had friends. 

I don’t see sitting with her sisters in law and listening to Steve or one of his sons rant at The Elderly for a few hours on Sunday morning being anywhere near a satisfactory replacement for all of that.

I’m hoping that every week Chelsy is stuck in Steve’s depressing “church,” she thinks about finding a new church for them. 

When they were first married, they were gone all the time. So I assumed they just didn’t bother finding a new church since they were gone so much. Now that they have a newborn and they are home much more, I’m really hoping she’s is considering a new church. The only good thing about Steve’s church is the elderly people fawning all over the baby and chelsy.

I’m sure she’s welcome to belt out Daddy On His Knees with Anna and Mary whenever she likes. What more could a girl want?

I think they are regular glasses. Reading glasses are typically something people need as they hit middle age or older. The Maxwell girls may not wear glasses all the time because their vision deficit is mild or because of vanity or because they don't have contacts yet.

First thing I thought of too! Although I'm not a child of the 70s, I'm a child of fundie parents who got rid of our Beast when I was little, leaving me with odd gaps in my TV show knowledge!

      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.
