Re: Undie Apocalypse

A couple years ago, my newly exmo dad and my 5yo son were with me at Target. My son needed new undies. My dad's all "take your time. Everyone deserves the undies they like best." So many layers of meaning in the exmo world. :D

Re: Your Favorite Foods

My youngest kid is totally a foodie in the making. His favorite thing to do when we run errands is pick out new cheeses at the cheese counter to try. :D He's all about charcuterie trays, too. He's 8. I had a recent obsession going with cheese balls (the good ones from the cheese shop) and everything...

Re: Your Favorite Foods

I'm kind of a foodie, but I also work too much to put nearly as much energy into it as I used to.

It's summer, so I'm all about fruit salad, giant salads with grilled meat of some kind on top, and ice cream these days.

Re: Has anyone been back to church yet to report?

I honestly have no idea if LDS churches are meeting in my area. Probably on some level because other churches are opening up, but IDK. That tells me that my "please don't talk to me about Mormonism" face and FB filters must be working pretty well.

Re: New Information on Lori Vallow case.

And I just have to say this: People who claim to talk to ghosts, angels, demons, dead people, and / or gods, or who claim they are gods are dangerous. This reminds me of a conversation I had when I first realized I really don't believe in any kind of god anymore. Family member: But what if Jesus ca...

Re: The church with a racist past...

I wonder what they could actually say that would be meaningful. Honestly, I don't know.

I mean, they're still racist, bigoted, and sexist at their core, so there's that.

Re: Alternative uplifting primary/fhe lesson ideas for mixed belief family?

Maybe do some research on what preschool teachers and school guidance counselors are teaching about growth mindset/resilience/good habits/kindness, etc. There are so many positive things and books to teach kids with. I don't have recommendations for 3yos because my kids are older, but searching on p...

Re: Hey God, you there? I’ll send you an email.

I did read that book as a preteen, and all I can recall is some terrifying (to me at the time), outdated information about menstrual products. God's too busy worrying about how to protect Russ's money to get back to you, Red. You're just out of luck. I find the best way to deal with this is to be to...

Re: Post Mo Contact

It is flat out inappropriate for them to be contacting your children directly. In no way is this justifiable. Even if you were active members, this is inappropriate without your express permission for the contact. Have their names removed and also call those directly that are initiating the contact...

Re: Disgust

I mostly border on indifference these days. Like the indifference I feel towards golfers. But then, the LDS church has to rile people up to reactivate those who've left every 6 months and that brings up bouts of anger/irritation/amusement/annoyance depending on who contacts me about what. It's a cyc...

Re: Jesus would like to know about your recent underwear purchase!

Yeah, that's completely normal behavior. Super normal. Like most normal behavior in the history of ever.

Mormons gonna Morm, and they're not going to realize how weird it is until they're no longer Morming.

If you fast without posting about it on facebook, are you even fasting?

My newsfeed says no.

I'd love to comment on it, but that would be "persecuting" people, right?

Please, for the love of Easter bunnies, people stop adding me to your fasting/MLM/whatever groups. I don't invite you to my stuff I know you're not interested in.

Re: Overjoyed...

The proclamation leaves one important question unanswered: Will the new proclamation fit into one wall frame or will it be a three frame set?

Re: Will it be a softer, kinder general conference?

I will be enjoying my day off on Saturday by hanging with my kids, and then I'll be working on Sunday. I'll have to rely on NOMies to keep count of JC vs JS and track how divided it is between trying to scare people into repenting, er, paying tithing and trying to convince that the church is all-inc...

Mormons are flooding FB with invites to gc because it's going to be such a positive, uplifting experience. Any chance the powers that be will actually make that happen?

I vote for the latter. No time like now to capitalize on fear and make sure the sheep know their place.
