  1. Congratulations! Very inspiring! :hurray:
  2. I would recommend reading "Art Before Breakfast". P.S. You're definitely not alone in this.
  3. Yes, we're in the process of moving to another church. It's very painful, but I know we're doing the right thing. We're pretty open with our kids about our reasons and we're hoping to teach them how to deal with manipulative people. We've been transitioning slowly - first Wednesday nights and I was amazed of how our kids flourished in a new environment. :grouphug: to you. It's not an easy decision.
  4. Yes, and it was a disaster. I didn't expect much, but the guy turned out to be like Howard Wolowitz. Urgh. :zombiechase:
  5. Hey! Impish!!! Glad to see you back! You, celebrity, you! :D To the OP question - I don't LOVE being married, but I like it. I never thought it would be so gut-wrenching at times and a lot of hard work, but lots of good times too.
  6. Jane, I'm so sorry for your loss. :grouphug: -Hubby and I watched the last Hobbit movie and I kept wondering what was actually in the book and what wasn't, so I reread The Hobbit. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it this time around. Now, onto The Lord of the Rings! :gnorsi: -A Year of Biblical Womanhood was mildly entertaining. - I Am in Here: the Journey of a Child with Autism Who Cannot Speak but Finds Her Voice was not what I thought it would be. More from her mom's perspective and a sprinkle of her poems (I loved those). I found the mom to be irritating and not very encouraging - there's a lot of talk of expensive treatments, flying overseas, having a team of top doctors and a lot of talk about her venture capitalist business/investing. I felt it would be very discouraging for people with less income to read all this. -Agatha Christie - an Autobiography was delightful, but very hefty book. I really enjoyed her childhood memories. :001_smile:
  7. We've been using Contigo bottles for a few years now. They really are durable and keep the drinks cold. I buy them at Costco when they have them, but here's the Amazon link : Contigo
  8. I have a first hand knowledge about the gossiping thing, because she is not subtle about it at all and a few times over the years things blew up out of control. A family actually had to leave the church because the wife confided in this person about something deeply embarrassing and painful to her and it's soon became a common knowledge. Honestly, when I heard about this application, I felt like screaming. I strongly feel that this lady will abuse a position of a pastor's wife and stir a lot of trouble. I hope the board and the congregation will have enough sense. But, thank you, Hive for your input.
  9. Wow, he sounds like an obnoxious ass.
  10. Our church is currently "pastorless". We have 3-4 guest speakers every Sunday, they rotate and it works great IMO. I think there is a general understanding that anyone in the congregation can apply before the board to speak if they feel the Lord's leading. Now, one of the guest speakers applied for the pastor's position. He's a great guy and a great preacher. However, his wife, while being very entertaining, generous and funny, also has shown controlling, manipulative tendencies and is a known gossip. As a couple they are very friendly, hospitable and participate pretty much in every church event. So, based on this, would you vote "Yes" for this man, or keep looking? I'd love to hear your opinion.
  11. My (then) 3 year old said, "Mom, I want to go to the devil again. It was so much fun!". :svengo: After much questioning, we figured it out - he wanted to visit the Endeavor Exhibit in LA again.
  12. Have you seen this? Leuchtturm 1917 bullet journal
  13. Mimm, thank you for posting the video and links! Very helpful! Where did you get the leather?
  14. Help me out, Hive, before I spend a lot on Frankincense essential oil? Does it really work? Any other, cheaper ways to get rid of them? :bigear:
  15. I'm glad I'm not the only one whose mind went straight into the gutter. :o
  16. I switched to Passion Planner which I really like. :leaving:
  17. http://www.thehonesttoddler.com/2014/04/OpenLetterto-ChildIhit.html :lol: :thumbup:
  18. We use Wet brush after they shower and leave the conditioner on their hair.
