Matilda, I have to ask: What's she like when she cries?
Awkward, I guess? She wasn't sobbing, just tears.

Yeah. I think she thought it was "Oh, we're engaged, but we're not getting married until we're 30." And I guarantee they told her all that stuff initially, she was just...coming up with her own answers to her questions in her head or something.

There is a lot to be said for delaying your first child until the girl is 22. Emotional maturity, education, ability to get and keep a job, run a household.

Your SIL will be 19 or 20 when she gets married? From a church based school, an early pregnacy will not be frowned on from a married couple.

Do you see any improvement in her organizational or housekeeping skills?

I know angel dust/pcp gives people superhuman strength. It can take a team of cops to subdue someone on that.
I was in ER when I was 17 (appendix) and they brought in some guy on PCP. O....M...F...G!!! It took like 6 cops (actual PD) plus three or four other guys, and a shot of something to get him down. There was no way to miss it. He tore UP that emergency room. This was after he broke out of the metal reinforced restraints. Bad bad bad drug.

They'll both be 20. And yeah, I know the culture of these schools/churches. Get hitched early, so you can bang. Next step is a kid, regardless if you're prepared.

Yeah, quite a bit improved. I guess her room at school is fairly neat and she leaves her room neat here when she leaves. He's a self professed neat freak.

Inexplicably hilarious.
Awesome.

The ones with the high pitched screams kind of freak me out.

I wonder if normal goats make fun of these goats....

Thanks. Our insurance changed and is worse and very complicate with tons of paperwork, so people are avoiding going to the doctor. People with kids have been forced to learn the new system.
When I wake up in the morning, I have fingers (especially my right thumb) I can barely move, and the pain is incredible. My knuckles are swollen. this is just in the last few months.
Get your a$$ to the doctor, missy! It could even be a virus, you don't know. Usually, the docs (well their nurses) will help you with the paperwork.

Blair ended up on Survivor and is very religious -- but she's not a preachy religious person.

i have a really simple one - a singer that i got at target for something like $130... it does applique, and that's enough for me. i've never had a serger either. hubby encourages me to get a fancier one if i want, but one of the stores that i follow has "$1000 off and $500 in freebies" with unadvertized prices... if it's $1000 off, it's too expensive for me! i stick wiht smaller projects, but have been toying wiht the idea of making a bed-sized quilt. the one on my avatar right now is a lap quilt and a recent pet project of mine...
Awesome. I think a quilt would be cool to make. I'd hope it'd get passed down and all. Of course, I wouldn't force it -- if they didn't like it, oh well.

Look on Amazon if you decide to look for another machine. There's some good prices for good machine there. I like being able to read the reviews, too.
