They'll be renting again. I had thought they wanted to buy?

They didn’t really say, but I’m guessing they were rejected by a bank. Chad mentioned that they would first need to rent because of his employment situation.

They did at least talk about looking around the area and getting to know it while looking for a forever home. 

It's so strange to me to make a whole video about "hey we're renting a house"

Like millions of people don't move and rent house regularly.  

At least it's an appropriate sized house. But one wonders about finances. A big house with land for rent vs a tiny house in TN. How are they affording the upgrade? East TN where they are is a very cheap place to live. FL is more expensive than TN (I've lived in both places). Hopefully these years of tiny house were spent saving to buy a house. Would still love to know why they're moving.

I think they are cheap. I think Erin inherited Gil’s cheap gene. I’m betting they have saved up some money. Why else would you squeeze five kids in a tiny bedroom? She wasn’t about to spend money on getting her kids a little more room.

I agree. Although i'd rather see Erin's cheap vs Carlin and all of them's trendy buy junk consumer wastefulness.

I expect Chad has made some sort of work for rent scenario. Either fixing up the rental or working the land etc. I also expect this is a church connections friend of a friend scenario. Maybe the house owner owns another business Chad will work for ala the scrap yard job he had.

At least Chad is resourceful.

I’m assuming they aren’t renting this place at market rate. The landlord is doing this good Christian family a favor. They know that Chad will make decent improvements to the place.

I don’t know what the Paines’ connection is to Florida, but they seemed like they just wanted to get away from Tennessee.

Have they said where the new house is / how far from Alyssa they'll be? Or will it be the same area as the last house they were supposed to move to?

The common areas seem fine but 3 bedrooms doesn’t seem like enough. (I also thought they were kind of small.) One for C&E, one for the 4 girls, and 1 for Carson. I’m not sure that’s how they’ll do it so I’m guessing. They could do 2 bunk bed in the master and take the next biggest for themselves.

If there was spiritualized language like "the Lord provided it" it could also be that they got the house through a connection or apprenticeship with Chad or something. I wouldn't be surprised if he takes on some kind of part time pastorate or position like that, and there could be a small church wanting that. Lots of options that don't mean renting at full price.

I forget Chad's exact words, but yes, it was along the lines of "the Lord provided." I suspect it may be tied to the same pastor that they were dealing with before. If that's the case, they'll be about an hour from Alyssa. But this is purely conjecture based on Chad's proclamations.

They're leaning in hard with the religious/biblical content. I guess Satan is coming for me since I don't study the Bible.  She also had a story about some puppet show done at the Paine family Thanksgiving.  It was very much an inside joke.

It’s so weird to me. The Bible is everywhere. It’s been studied more than so many other books. What is new? Nothing. They are just printing scripture on little cards and make the same points over and over again. It’s so boring.

She mentioned a screened in porch, but didn't show it, I think. In Florida, that would count as another common area. 

I figure either Chad has a job opportunity in Florida, or his grandparents have a property that he expects to inherit, or partly inherit.

Saw these in TJ Maxx today and thought of this thread. Only $4. Erin’s are probably way more expensive.

That’s sort of how I feel about anything Fundies sell. Overpriced stuff you can get somewhere else for cheaper.

Right…I can read a book from or about Thomas Aquinas, Emerson, Calvin, Knox, Luther, the Dalai Lama, Plato, Brahma, Jesus, Mohammad…what theology could these 2 possibly know or impart that could not be sourced elsewhere? Seriously. Why can’t he get a construction job and why can’t she teach music?

This is Chad's Grandfather:

Charles S. Paine, Sr., M.D.

President at Wesleyan Bible Conference Association

Brooksville, Florida, United States

[Chad is actually Charles S Paine III]

So I assume that is where they are headed. Maybe 50-60 miles west of Alyssa?

Yep. The only one I don’t mind who schills stuff is Michaels. Other than her being fundie she has a lovely home made business with what looks like quality home made items. That are most prob worth the money. Or at least worth supporting a small business for rather than a big corporate gig. (If you can afford the luxury of buying home made)

Charles I is a doctor. 
Charles II is a doctor. 
Charles III is a carpenter. 
 

I honestly don’t get it. If being a doctor runs in your family, why listen to Gothard and keep your kids from getting a college education?

I mean, if being a carpenter is what makes him happy, then I'm basically all for it, no matter what his dad and grandad did for a living. But Chad always looks so horribly exhausted, and I genuinely wonder if working his ass off in a physically demanding job to feed his growing brood is going to be a sustainable choice for him in terms of health. Then again, he probably figures God will provide for Erin and the kids if he drops dead at forty...

Working as a carpenter can support a family with 2 kids. But they have 5 and before Erin had her surgery, they were probably going to end up with 10. His own father could probably support a family of 12 because he was paid well as a doctor. It makes no sense to tell your kids not to go to college but then tell them to let his decide their family size. They need big paychecks for big families.

Does the Paine family have a business similar to Daniel Webster? DW went to VA tech, has an electrical engineering degree and owns a family heating and air company. Some of his sons are also college educated, and some (maybe all) work for the family business. And I agree about the paychecks and large family needs. I also feel this way about all religions that forbid BC. How do these churches expect people to feed, clothe and house children, without adequate funds? How is that responsible?

As far as I can tell, they do not.

I suspect there's a huge profit margin. They are essentially selling paper. That's pretty cheap for them to buy. The content is free.  They sell these cards at a huge markup. That's much better than framing a house in the heat and humidity.

As for Erin, it's. pretty hard to teach a piano lesson with five small children in the house. None of her kids are old enough to be the babysitter.

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.
