Since John was the "rebellious" Maxwell child, I wonder if he gets a rise out of bringing his pants-wearing wife around to the family compound and then just shrugging it off when Steveus asks John why he "lets" his wife dress like that.

I got the feeling that he was considered rebellious because his behaviour, not his beliefs. Teri posted about John would have been diagnosed ADHD in a school, and she was proud that thanks to their homeschool system, he wasn't. They trained him to keep quiet, I guess.

Now, John is married to an absolutly fundie. John and Chelsy are training 1-year-old Axton to not to move during long church services, to not to touch his food, sleeptrained him, etc.

There ia any indication that John is less fundie than Teri and Steve. Chelsy wears pants, like most fundamentalist do. I bet that lots of Maxwells in-laws and *friends* wear pants, too. It's not a rebellion and they are used to that, despite their skirts-only blog.

Since the Maxwells are all about secrecy, I thought I'd get a jump on Jesse & Anna Craig's courtship story. Jesse: I first met Anna a couple years ago. We didn't really talk, she hung ou

Has Sarah started writing "Quarantine with the Moodys" yet?

“We started reading Book 1: Summer with the Moodys today as a family during our read-aloud time. Before we started, my five-year-old was very excited to learn about the connection of you with the book

I wonder how much of the pants wearing is coming from Chelsy. In their world this would be 100% John's decision. However, I am certain some of these fundie girls have figured out how to make their husbands think something was their decision.

What is really interesting to us is, how no matter how good automation gets, there are some things that you just have to do by hand.  


I work in food industry and despite the use of automated machines, someone still has to work and keep on eye of those machines, robots etc. My work is still pretty much done 90 % by hand (maybe I should start calling myself "food artisan" now!). Since 2000 when I first began my job the machines have gotten newer (but not necessarily better) and somewhat more automated, but the work itself is still the same. You just can't remove human hands from it.

@LurkerOverThePond,  I was reading an article several months ago (Food and Wine?  New Yorker? Vogue? Somewhere else entirely?) about how the "smart kitchen" hasn't exactly panned out.   One of the cooktops I'm considering has  the stuff to connect to an app where you can control the cooktop remotely.  I can't think of anything more useless on a gas cooktop.

      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.  

      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.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
