  1. The word preggo. My oldest son started saying "literally" with everything he would say. It was pretty annoying and we couldn't figure out what started it. One day I was talking and I realized I used "literally" several times. I turned in horror to my husband and said "IT'S. ME."
  2. You give me hope that it's possible... Congratulations! :D
  3. Do you have a particular interest? Something that while educating your kids, you found interesting? A particular period of history... a certain author... I have things that interest me that I try to read so I don't stay just in mommy zone. I was a history major in college, so I read history to keep my brain alive. :001_smile: I just got a book yesterday on the historical canon of the New Testament. *stoked*
  4. Can you make some muffins or cookies without sugar? Maybe with dates as a sweetener? Bring them in your purse so you can eat them while the family eats the donuts/ice cream. This looks good: http://themommybowl.com/2012/01/24/peanut-butter-fudge-cookies/
  5. :iagree: I occasionally listen to sermons by Britt Merrick from a church in California. He said gave a sermon on Hebrews 1:2 that I made sure to make a mental note of: "The age of the earth is not a test for orthodoxy. Whether you believe God did it in 6 24-hour days or God did it in millions of years, neither camp can reject the other as being unorthodox or heretical... Therefore one camp should not be arrogant toward the other, should not belittle the other, should not reject the other... If you don't believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, if you don't believe in the literal, physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, you don't have orthodox Christianity. If you don't believe that atonement is only through the cross of Jesus Christ, you don't have orthodox Christianity. If you don't believe that God created all things, you don't have orthodox Christianity. Some things are a test for orthodoxy. But the age of the earth is not... Neither view is proven with scientific finality and since there are unproven or even unprovable presuppositions associated with earth, we need to chill."
  6. I wonder if I might take a stab at this. I think what LTD might have been referring to is a physical church building. If my local area were to come under a wave of persecution and all the church buildings were burned or destroyed, my faith would be the same, because my faith is in Christ. I also strongly believe in the communal meeting and fellowship of believers. There is no lone Christian, IMO. But, if there were no church buildings, there would still be believers. And those believers would still meet, and the "church" would never disappear. Yes, I agree that the church (a community of believers) is a constant. But again I think what LTD was referring to was the church building, or a physical building to meet. God provides. Yahweh-yireh. Just my 2 cents.
  7. So I don't know anything about GF, but I like a challenge. :001_smile: Would this work? http://www.bobsredmill.com/recipes_detail.php?rid=1426
  8. Thanks for that. It's not really anyone's fault, you are just clarifying your theological standpoint. But the frustration comes with our local Christian community. We've been searching (and praying) for a church community for over a year. Week after week crosses one off the list. The thing is, we *know* that there is no perfect community. We all come in with our issues, but... man, there is absolutely nothing out there. Just to clarify, I'm not looking for anyone to solve it or for recommendations. God has us in this place for a reason, I'm just getting impatient. :001_smile:
  9. Yes, sorry. I only read the first few pages before making the statement at the end. :o These threads never seem to end well, so I was expecting this one to end in a lock down.
  10. It's threads like these that make me want to cry and mourn the state of our faith. Sorry, that's just how I feel. I need to hide back in my hole and continue to ignore all threads that deal with religion.
  11. :iagree: I started saying something similar because by reading the first post it sounded like you said "inappropriate movies," but that's so vague. Does that mean R-rated movies? People naked? But I stopped when a few posts later you said he searched for "tea videos." Because (though I've never done a search) if you do a search, you don't have to look very hard to find it. I'm just wondering what he has physically seen... Though I'm not sure it would make a difference in the level of concern because regardless he's still looking for it.
  12. You know, all my years on Amazon, I just found out about the "Save for Later" feature a few weeks ago. Needless to say, it's now a respectable size to make up for those lost years.
  13. Yeah, I changed it because it sounded harsh. Every place has it's bad parts, that's just what I remember from PC.
  14. I'm between Tyndall and Hurlburt. If your wife wants seasons, then it's a no on Florida. :001_smile: Panama City is blah, IMHO, but I don't know much but from a few TDYs. It's hot and miserable during the summer. It's definitely not a dry heat. Again, my opinion, but I've lived in Florida my whole life and I haven't gotten used to it yet. NW Florida is not *as bad* as central Florida as far as humidity. The weather right now is beautiful, cool mornings, warm afternoons. But still mosquitoes. :glare: It definitely doesn't feel the same year round. It gets hot, and it gets cold (by my Florida standards). And there are a few weeks in between where it's wonderful. Schools are tolerable. Homeschooling is not common, I know of one other person that plans on homeschooling, and one other homeschooling family. But there are hs groups, I'm just not involved because my son's still young. You're welcome to PM me if you have any specific questions about the area.
