Dillards 76: Somewhat successful social media?!?

Recommended Posts

Tired
finnlassie

I think the 9th pic is stinkin' cute and funny. If I ever end up marrying my boyfriend and have kids with him we'd end up having a lot of these situations. He's close to 200cm and most places aren't too accomodating for that...

Also, Derick's feet look way out of proportion.

You know where Jello comes from, right?  😀

 

LOL - yes, I do.  It's the visual aspect of a jello salad with chunks of beef or chicken floating in it that I find visually unappealing.  But now I'm reminded of the Friends episode where Rachel makes a trifle but two pages are stuck together so what she makes is: 

RACHEL’S THANKSGIVING TRIFLE:

a layer of ladyfingers
a layer of jam
custard (made from scratch)
raspberries,
more ladyfingers
beef sautéed with peas and onions
a little more custard
sliced bananas
and whipped cream.

ETA:  It looks like the boys had a great time at Silver Dollar City, and with their younger cousin.

There are also times when Derick posts videos of Jill/shares things about Jill where I wonder if part of his intent is to humiliate/embarrass her.  Fundie social media sometimes comes across as "off" or malice where there is none simply because so many fundie second gen kidults grew up isolated and failed to learn some social boundaries.  However, Derick has no excuse.  He was at a major university with social media.  He knows what he's doing.  He knows how this looks. 

And sometimes I get the feeling Derick absolutely intends it.  That he wants to subtly put her down and embarrass her in front of others in a way that she can't complain about because "he was just trying to be sweet", so any negative emotions she might feel are "crazy" or "ungrateful" and therefore invalid.  

I get the feeling Derick gaslights Jill, and Jill doesn't have the skills or knowledge to defend herself and instead thinks that she is the problem.  I wonder if that's where all her spark has gone.  

I don't get that from this post, I'm sure Jill ate it up, she strikes me as the type to love the silly mushy gushy crap like this.

Yes, Derick is an epic ass hat for what he did to Jazz online, and a douche in general, but I think maybe just maybe, these two are getting their shit together and finding their groove, FINALLY.  They both look happy, the kids look happy, I'm not seeing that nervousness in Izzy's face anymore in photos, Jill doesn't seem so strained or afraid or worried, and Derick is starting to look like the "nice" guy who busted onto the scene to steel little Jilly muffins heart.

Sometimes I really wonder about Derick and how his mind operates. He clearly is a young man who has a variety of interests, seeks knowledge and has been successful in higher education. He is obviously intelligent enough to hold his own. Yes, he is religious, but yet he seemingly has not curtailed Jill’s personal growth or placed additional, JBesque restrictions onto Jill. He is not a recluse, has friends, has traveled and has participated in a variety of activities, both at home and abroad. I have a really hard time trying to reason why this guy would be attracted to and pursue a person who: has had a very limited life, no real education, never made an independent decision, was not allowed to have friends, read, go to school, have relationships aside from with her sisters, have no real hobbies, and on and on. It just seems like a very unlikely match. Personally, DD seems like the kind of guy who might remain a bachelor for a good long time, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Another thing that always resonates with me was the scene where DD arrives back to the airport from India and his mom says to him, *” I can’t wait for you and Jill to finally get to talk privately and get to know each other.” Paraphrasing*... I think Cathy was always a bit uneasy about JB’s rules.

I have to wonder if Derek was trying to be funny and fell flat or if there is some inside joke we aren't privy to that he's referencing. I mean he's an asshole but with Jill's response I don't get that vibe from this particular post.

Anna is a dick. Her move only draws more attention to the fact that DD did not include Michelle.  

Personally, I wouldn't include my MIL in a mother's day message, that's my spouses job. When my MIL was alive, it was up to him to get her a gift or a mother's day card, I dealt with my mom. If I had a wife or a partner instead of a husband that woman had given birth to my child, then I would also be responsible to wish her a happy mother's day since she gave birth to my children. But, IMO, that's it, MILs belong to the spouse/SO who birthed them.

 

Did Joshley make a special post or mention Anna's mother in anything he might have posted for Mother's Day?

I think Jill's wearing a tank top in that photo, @Nishi621.  It looks like you can either see her sports bra underneath (and it's black to boot!) or it's a modesty panel.

She’s a Duggar.  It’s probably another tank top.

I think it depends on the family tbh. When my gramma was alive I always got her flowers. She was a major part of me growing up. I always call my aunt too. She's got my cousin but I'm still like a daughter to her.

This is what I wanted to say. The photos from Silverdollar City are the best photos of Derick since their courting days IMO. He looks relaxed and happy and like he’s enjoying family life. The kids and Jill look happy too. 

It feels like something that has been bothering them for a long time has gone away. Maybe they are actually starting to find their way. Fingers crossed it leads away from Duggar beliefs and internet bullying of teenagers and towards something a bit more fundie light and happy.

I saw the Instagram video Jill posted while she was promoting Amy’s store and clothing. I actually can see both those couples getting a little closer as the Dillard’s continue to pull away from Duggar Church to more mainstream church. Not sure how close they live to each other or the guys like or tolerate each other...

I can get behind that, she's your family. I would have sent my grandmother something also.

I guess what I meant more was in laws, not your FOO. To me, in laws should be taken care of by the spouse/SO related to them (unless you have an exceptionally close relationship to the in laws). But, I have no issue with sending to grandmothers and such on your side of the family.

 

I can't find a photo online, I saw them online last night but can't find them now.

But, did people see the photos of Jill at a friend's house in short shorts??  JB must be livid!

 

Found it!

They're shorts, but in no way are they short shorts like Daisy Dukes. She looks nice in them.

Damn, back in 2014 watching jill who would have thought it would have been her (sorta) breaking away from the Duggar mold

Maybe the key to the Dillards happiness was getting away from TLC and JB. If this is even partially true, I am glad that those connections were somewhat broken. I am also glad that the Dillards are active in a more structured , large religious community. Jill, in particular, needed exposure to more mainstream Christians. Shame is one of the most destructive emotions within our culture, and Duggarville is fueled by it.

I’ve been saying it for years - Michelle wears the pants in that relationship in every way but literal.

this is her crazy train.  She designed it, built it, is the engineer and ...whatever other train functions there are (my analogy ran out of steam.)

hes her enabler - she chose a man who would do her bidding and be her enforcer and take the heat for her control.  She’s not smart but she’s cagey.

In the live from Amy's store, Jill mentions a birthday pedicure with her mom. Her birthday meal was just girls also. And wasn't Michelle the only one to attend one of the boys birthday party? Have we seen Jill with JB lately? There must be very hard feelings between Derrick and JB. Although they're both vile, it's got to be tough on Jill.

Shame is rampant in the mainstream Christianity world as well, but I do think it's healthier than being so caught up in Duggarville.

100% agree. Michelle can talk until she is blue in the face about how Jim Bob is the headship of the home, but she runs that place, and has since the beginning. If she had told Jim Bob after 6 kids that she was done, he would have been fine with it, I bet. This obsession with children, and babies, and talking in a high-pitched, unnatural voice... it is ALL on her.

      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.
