I was just thinking of the mention above of Thanksgiving 2020 with just the spinster aunts. One of those women has to get married. It will be pathetic by next year.

I think the only way a Maxwell daughter would get married would involve first an escape and then meeting someone in the real world. Not going to hold my breath on that.

I love to do random acts of kindness because (perhaps selfishly?) it makes me feel better.  Like what @Hane said - if I’m feeling down, knowing something I did made a difference or helped someone else

Steve Maxwell stands on the doorstep, and sings to his young neighbors, passing on his - um . . . unusual - view of Jesus’ love and forgiveness: You better watch out, You better not sin, Or f

My great aunts (all have passed away now, sadly) used to go away for sisters’ weekends. Hearing about those weekends was always such a hoot. One year, three of the four went shopping while the one sta

Slightly changing direction: somehow I’m now FB following Grace Maher — sister-in-law of Nathan Max via his marriage to Melanie Maher — and she is class-y while also apparently doing moderately well in the Nashville music scene. 

I devoutly hope her Maxwell nieces know her and get to spend time with her. What a great role model for the ABC’s to be able to see a young woman living an unfettered life! 

Let's not forget Grace and Mel's sister Anna who went to college and is a nurse. She also lived both with Grace and on her own before marrying. There were pictures of Anna's nursing school graduation party online somewhere at one point and Mel's girls were there. They've also been spotted at one of Mel's brother's wedding which included both drinking and dancing.

So, I just read Anna Marie's post about cooking beans in the Instant Pot. The only thing I could think of reading it is the witch from Into the Woods rapping about beans being stolen.

New post on gift giving suggestions— Moody Books and a full run down of their full canon, available now. Are book reviews easy to find on FJ? Curious on some of the content.

I want to applaud Anne Marie M. She clearly has an idea about decent nutrition. She also shows good writing skills. She should scribe a cookbook.

I don't know easy it would be to find reviews of the Moody books here, but they do exist.  I think I can sum them up in a few words:  They suck!  They're badly written and Sara's sheltering and poor education really shine through.

I have to say the navy bean soup and cornbread looks very tasty.

Somebody needs to get knocked up or engaged. They are even boring themselves lately.

True, at least her children are getting more than burritos and don't have a mom who is too lazy to make a salad.

They need to get some new content to sell, because they just keep peddling the same books over and over again. All their readers probably already have all those books.

Both Elissa and Anna Marie are expecting (due in January/February and February respectively). It's a little soon for Melanie (Deborah is only 7 months, so based on her spacing I wouldn't expect an announcement for a year or more, if she even gets pregnant again). We don't have baby gaps to make predictions for Chelsy but Axton is over 10 months so Chelsy could theoretically announce soon. 

I'm not holding my breath waiting for an engagement.

For all we know Jesse might be engaged, but since they don't announce engagements on the blog anymore we won't know until after the wedding.  Darn it.

I wonder if Anna Marie will become a regular poster one of these days.

anachronistic

The post was written by Sarah but she didn’t even bother to change the pronoun here:

“My Delight is a powerful book that grew from my own experience of being married for 45 years and mentoring ladies for over 15.”

Then a paragraph or two later she refers to her own children’s books. That might really confuse some people as to who wrote what, because everyone knows that Sarah has never and will never be married.

If only there was a person who could look over blog posts/books and make sure that simple, egregious mistakes like this didn’t happen. Someone like, oh, an editor.......

(I suppose Steve thinks they don’t need one as FJ serves that purpose. I bet within a day or two that pronoun will change just because I pointed it out here,)

True, but he probably has to save the rent to equal the value of his house adjusted for inflation or something similarly crazy! LOL.

It's a tad better written when she does, but not terribly exciting, even by Maxwell standards.

I can’t seem to share a link, but Leavenworth County Emergency Management has some nice pictures on their Facebook page. 

It seems Married Anna took her kids to their office for a little field trip yesterday. I think it’s really neat that they got to do that and that they took cookies to the workers. No snark from me on this. I have tried to share screen shots:

edit: I tried to put all the photos under a spoiler but one jumped out. Is that allowed? Off to read guidelines again.

That must have been a fun field trip for the Maxkids.

Dare I hope they saw some female staff at the office, and not just this guy and Chuck?

Chuck and I had a little surprise in our office yesterday…..actually five little surprises!  The Maxwell children dropped by with a plate of homemade cookies, handmade cards and some Christmas cheer for our office.  Joshua, the oldest is quite the little expert when it comes to outdoor warning sirens, so we invited him and his siblings to help us sound the sirens for our monthly test.  Thank you guys for all your help!                                                                                                                         So if Joshua has a talent for emergency weather services and wants to work in that field when he grows up, are his parents gonna squash that dream too just like Prissy Chris wanting to be an EMT?

Am feeling it's time to get on with final speculation on names/sex/weights for Elissa's and Anna Marie's babies.  Can we do that on this thread or are we supposed to move to the baby name thread over in Duggarland now?

Make the fun stop! A SCRIPTURE MEMORY PARTY??

Nothing like an oral exam for fun.

Let us hope there were over-stuffed [by Maxwell standards] burritos at least to go with it. One cake for the whole darned "crew"? Not good enough.

He and Annamarie were posing with a cake at the end with a bible quote. Maybe that was his reward? After all, Christopher does work hard teaching the children how to read scripture judging from Anna Marie's posts about how all of the techniques she uses.

Just like how he absolutely made the cake and piped the verse in icing.

No kidding, do we know what Christopher does for a living? Other than take wedding photos? 

BTW I noticed in the first photo Chelsy had her hand on her belly. I keep looking at it and I think she is expecting, she just hasn't announced it yet. Is it me? Or is it just the way she is sitting?

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
