Wow, thumbs up to the DH's today!
Lydia, I'm so happy for you that twins are loving school so much.
As far as Savana saying Junior instead of Jesus is because she doesn't know that much about him. My mom would tell her the story sometimes and tell her that Christmas is Jesus' birthday and I was fine that. We enjoy all kinds of stories. Anyway, she just really wanted to the balloon and had no idea why this lady was trying to tell her story she already heard before.
We were at a store last year around Christmas and she called him, "Baby Genius"
Oh, and Lydia, I LOVE that picture of Soren.

I'm having trouble getting my husband to be a little more quiet with his 'lusty' comments to me. I mean, I'm very glad he still finds me attractive, but it doesn't exactly turn me on when my first reaction is, "Oh no, did the kids hear that?" I've tried communicating with him nicely about it but he doesn't learn. I think I hurt his feelings last night because I got a little snippy I just don't know what else to do to get him to hush...at least in front of the kids.
It's not like he can spell things out any more.
eta: It's not literally in front of the kids, but our house is very open and it has thin walls. If one of them was coming down the hallway yesterday, they could have heard him clearly. He doesn't make those comments where they can hear him on purpose, but he's not very aware of them all the time either.

Oscar's only reference to Jesus is the Jesus Christ superstar soundtrack. We've briefly told him the abbreviated story, which is "good guy everyone thought should be there king, other guys didn't like him" but we've been clear, just like we are with other stories, that he's not real. Oscar thinks he's on par with spongebob.
No worries about that here! LOL Not that Dh doesn't lust after me but he doesn't really vocalize it.
Josh has no idea about Jesus....
Oh and something that really bothers me is that sometimes when I go to the gym they have the 700 club playing on both tv's (it's a very small gym)
I don't really get it, since they usually have Regis and Kelly or the Today show on. I want to say something but not really sure what, or if I should? I just can't really stand to work out with that in my face. And I dont see like, anyone watching it either.
Aww, Happy Birthday!

I watched one of them last night--the quality was good, but he had to keep putting the camera down (I guess ushers kept walking by) and at times he was focusing on the wrong thing, so you'd miss some action, and during "Loathing" he mainly focused on Galinda, when Elphaba has some really great parts.

I confess I think all the cool people only exist online. I just went to a playgroup with some moms from the UU church. Now I know I'm relatively new to the group but I just feel completely ignored. Two of the women were really close so they sat and talked the whole time. They stayed in while I went outside with the husband of the house and the kids. Awkward...
When I came in to say goodbye to the two friends on the couch, they barely looked at me. Jeez, sorry.
Most of these women are totally pretentious anyway, I don't know why I try. They're all about organic this and hemp that and all natural this and bfing and cding and that's all fine but they look down their noses at people who don't (or even worse don't seem to realize there are people who don't) and they throw it in at every chance that everything they use is reusable or natural.
One of the women has a reusable straw for heaven's sake.
I confess I cried on the way home. I haven't had a good friend since high school and normally I'd say eff it, but I'm getting sick of being lonely and invisible. Even when I go to the gym the ladies say hi to Josh and not to me. WTF?
I think it is tricky to find people you really connect with irl...especially for me, as I live in a really rural, redneck area. But I'm sure there are obstacles in finding a 'good fit' in urban areas as well.
I just don't want you losing faith in the human race There are still some gems out there.
I feel lonely almost all the time. I don't have any good friends, moms or otherwise. The dumbest thing is I have 3 aunts and my mom all within 10 minutes. Spending time with them usually just makes things worse.
I agree with Chrissy that it is extremely hard to find people you really connect with in real life. I thank my lucky stars that I have my old friends within a couple hours of me. So often when I meet someone new, I just feel like a weirdo.
And seriously? Screw those women. They sound horribly rude and self absorbed. Yuck.
Oh yeah, I didn't mean the cool people were faking it. It's just that I don't know any of you IRL so it's like you only exist online, KWIM? LOL
I don't want to turn this into a pity party but I'm getting really discouraged. For 13 years...all my attempts at friendships have failed. No matter how much you think, well it's them, not me...it's pretty sad anyway.
Good, I didn't know if you felt that or not, so I only wanted to reassure you just in case.
And believe me, I can totally relate to difficulties with making friends. Sometimes it is me...I have high standards (or they're high imo!) and I don't tolerate ignorance very well. I feel annoyed easily and just don't want to put effort into a friendship.
It would be nice, though, to have someone close to me that wasn't work. I don't do well with biting my tongue if I have to do it frequently. It's probably a flaw of mine, but I'm unmotivated to change it.
I confess sometimes it bothers me when something good happens to us and someone says 'thank the Lord!" or "God is good!" Um... what about all our hard work that went into the situation? No, our back-breaking efforts were nothing, it was *your* prayers that helped us.
I'm sorry you had such a bad playdate, Kate. I hate those high and mighty types that think it's okay to walk all over people because they do X or X a certain way. Just rude.
