and baby makes 17

Yes, the Duggars had baby number 17 today, a girl named Jennifer Danielle.

You can see pictures here.

I didn't know they were expecting, although I should have expected that they were expecting.

Thomas was delighted as he enjoyed watching their documentary on TV.

Me? Um, no comment.

UPDATE: I guess I do have a comment. I believe in freedom. If someone chooses to have 17 babies, so be it. Live and let live. I do worry about the health of the mother. I worry about the message this sends: don't use birth control. I believe they have the message on their website along the lines that states that it's God's will that they have so many babies. Well, I believe that God gives all women and men a brain. I think God expects people to use their brain. I just don't think it's healthy to have 17 babies. I believe God invented birth control for a reason.

I don't know. Who am I to judge?

I think that's why I find the Duggars so intriguing...I just don't know what to think!

what day is it? Or, I'm an idiot!

This is the second time since I've been home from vacation that I have totally messed up what day of the week it was. I thought it was Monday. It felt like Monday all day long. Bob and I were paying bills tonight and I was complaining that we had to wait three days until payday and couldn't pay everything today. He looked at me as if I were crazy. Because I WAS crazy.

I've been crazy twice now.

crazy crazy crazy crazy crazy

Today is Wednesday, August 1st, 2007.

Perhaps I'll have Thomas make a big kindergarten-like calendar for me tomorrow. We can put it on the fridge. I can have him drill me.

As Homer would say, "D'oh!!!"

Monday Afternoon

This is the third time I've tried to blog today. My computer keeps closing blogger down on me.

Have cramps. Sick of cramps. Am ready for menopause. Right now.

Hot out. Thomas came in because it was too hot to play. All the neighborhood kids wanted air conditioning.

Ordered all our school stuff. Less than $200. Woo-hoo to that! Thomas looked at the language arts stuff I blogged about and Painless Grammar and some other stuff I found. He chose Grammar Rules! and Mechanics. Go figure. I guess I'm learning to read him pretty well.

Have discovered that our school room actually has a floor complete with carpeting. Of course there isn't a clean, flat surface in there yet, just stacks of books, but will get it all cleaned before school starts in September.

Thomas is working on a quilling project for the county fair. I have my mom's old quilling supplies and dug them out. Neat entry for the paper craft category. All the stuff we found was pretty "girly" and then we found some neat books with bugs and fish, so Thomas has been making fish, sea horses, etc. Didn't buy the books, but studied the pictures online. Call me cheap. Will share pictures when it's all done.

Can't believe it's almost August. Where did the summer go?

I think the couch is calling me. I still feel like crap. I wish I could have a motrin IV drip -- well, actually I'd prefer something a little stronger and something that would make me "happy" if you know what I mean. I'm sure Bob would agree with that!
