Let's say as a hypothetical situation, a church leader recently gave a rather pointed lesson (not pointed at me). If I criticize her lesson, is that the same as criticizing her? If I criticize her lesson, is that same as not sustaining her as a leader? Okay obviously this is not a hypothetical situation. Anyway, it's not like I need to take any action regarding this lesson, it just rubbed me the wrong way. How does one criticize a leader (privately, just to a friend or two) but still continue to sustain her? I certainly don't think sustaining is equal to letting a leader say whatever she wants. I suppose the key for me is to make sure I maintain humility (or rather......get some humility ha ha) and stay close to the Spirit.
Why are there stretch marks? I don't want to jump around in a bikini, but is it really so bad to want to look hot for my husband? Why do I have to redefine hot to include stretch marks? I do get the impression that women care more about these things than men, but hi! I'm a woman! So I care about them!
My husband is working overtime every week, taking a graduate class, preparing for the GRE, and is sick. I am almost seven months pregnant and spend my days trying to entertain a toddler. I feel like all I did today was tell my daughter: No! Don't touch! Stop that! and barely keep a grip on my temper. My house is completely messy. Groceries are still sitting in their bags in the entryway from this morning. I can't find one of Baby E's shoes because my house is so frickin messy. I wish there was someone to slough the extra off onto. Instead, after Baby E went to bed, I crashed on the sofa for an hour. When Dh got home from work, I'm sure he was not happy that the house was trashed and no dinner was ready.
