I love buying clothes, but I need to be alone. My wedding dress (it wasn't a gown, but a cocktail dress) I bought it by myself. I would have hated going with my relatives and friends. Too many opinions. 

After the hard case of covid Erin had, how can Bates still travel for fun? Josie is pregnant, isn't she scared? And Whitney too. 

To me it seems like none of them have any sense. Travelling all over the place, gathering in different groups and no one manages to keep a mask on their face.

They think they are untouchable and they don't care about anyone else. Very Christian, very pro-life. 🤮

Often I think that this type of person doesn't take something like covid seriously until it affects them personally. But in this case, it affected Erin very deeply and they still don't think it'll happen to them (or that they'll infect someone). It's a criminal lack of empathy but I suppose that's how they've been raised.

I always thought if Ellie were in a more mainstream home that she would have an awesome sense of style. She does seem to slightly stand out from the others in her age group fashion-wise.  Once in a while you see a glimpse of it such as a motorcycle jacket with a swing dress or big earrings with the matching necklace.  A shame that her creativity can't be cultivated.    

I think that Addallee looks like Michaela, Ellie looks like Tori, and Callie is very Erin-esque.

Erin's situation doesn't seem to have stopped any of them at all.  We know Josie and Carlin had Covid.  And seem to have been fine, it probably made them even less concerned about it.

Seeing them travelling around again and again and again while not even being able to properly wear their damn masks makes me so furious. And if I'm honest, I might be a little jealous as well.

In Germany the vaccination still isn't recommended for pregnant women, yet the number of pregnant women with severe cases (and that have to spend time in intensive care) is increasing. I've been very very careful since I found out that I'm pregnant, but hearing this scared me a lot. I miss seeing people, hugging my family and friends and the Bateseseses (and all the other fundies) still get to have all the fun. Sometimes I which I could be as reckless as they are.

I know - it is a petty thing to think that way.

@ophelua, I don't think it's at all petty to think that way. My husband and I canceled traveling to South Carolina to see my sister and her family because they continued to attend a non-mask wearing church at the height of the pandemic. They have never gotten COVID, thank goodness but it does make me a little jealous . Here's hoping you can be vaccinated soon.

Watching them on IG, I have to ask, do the Bates girls ever stop grooming and posing for professional photos?  Every one of them is constantly with a professional photographer.

I'm pregnant and just got my first shot in Canada so i hope they approve it for you soon! I agree, those ICU stats are scary. (We're under a stay at home order anyway but I'm still pretty excited to have a shot!)

It’s the only way their parents taught them to make money. It’s sad.

To the bolded: I don’t think it’s petty at all, it’s only natural we crave human contact (and not just via Zoom and Skype) but with meetings and hugs as well. This pandemic has made it difficult for many of us to stay in touch with our dear ones the way we want to and being sad about it is understandable. 

As for your pregnancy, I wish you health and all the very best!!! 🤗

Yes! I have thought this for a while. The young Bates (the under 6 crowd) have spent more time with a professional photographer than most adults.

Congrats to your pregnancy! And to getting your shot 😉 I hope you are doing fine. Maybe it's just me, but I feel like there are a lot of pregnant persons right now on FJ.
I've talked to my Obgyn the other day and she is quite hesitant when it comes to the vaccination. Our Standing Committee on Vaccination at the Robert Koch Institute hasn't yet made the move to approve pregnant persons to get their shot (there are exceptions of course!), because they feel like they don't have enough data when it comes to pregnancy and the vaccination. So we'll see.

I am turning 33 this year and have NEVER spent time (or money) on a professional photographer. 😅😉

      A happy summer solstice to all northern hemisphere FJers! And a happy winter solstice to all southern hemisphere FJers! (I know it's already Monday is Australia, so I'm late for most of you.)

      ETA--Oh! I just checked, and the winter solstice is at 1:31 PM on Monday, June 21 in Eastern Australia Time. So, for once the time zones worked in my favor. I'm not late!

      I'm so angry at the Bishops right now. Shit like this is why I left the Catholic church. They play politics so blatantly.  I hope this convinces more people to leave.

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.

      Dear FJ ladies of a certain age.  Did you know that joint pain can appear/increase with perimenopause and menopause?  No?  Me neither till my rheumatologist told me yesterday.  It's all down to the fall in (o)estrogen. 
      Looking online, it'll either settle down as your hormones adapt to their new levels OR you're stuck with it!  I don't fancy needing NSAIDs for the rest of my life.

      This evening a biker dude went out of his way to follow my car into a retail store's parking lot to lecture me on - get this - braking when the light turned yellow. I had been going the speed limit and it was by no means the shortest stop I've ever made. He condescendingly told me that next time I should hit the gas because people like him could "go splat" into my car. Really dude?!? If you're going to drive any vehicle, especially a motorcycle, actually learn to drive it and don't effing tailgate me when I'm going the speed limit. And if you did rear-end me, guess whose fault it would be? Certainly not the person who was obeying the law.
      Also, I hate living in a society where I have to say this, but I am soooo thankful my male coworker was with me. The biker stopped his bike right behind my car when I parked and wouldn't move it until his lecture was over. If I had been alone I would have been terrified.
