Well the author called the tv version of Thorn Birds, dog vomit. Ill never forget that description. I love both but they are different stories. Sent from my iPhone

I started a movie called, "The Perfect Family" on Amazon. It's terrible. About all the terrible things the world thinks Christians are -- bigots, oblivious, anti-gay, etc. ANYWAY, Richard Chamberlain is in it with Kathleen Turner. He plays a priest.... Continue reading
Did you hear the Kates rumor that his dad made have helped him cover the first murder? Truly monstrous. I hope they find her body. Evil walks among us. Sent from my iPhone
Thats awesome. LOL Sent from my iPhone
Ill bet most of the couples made online are legit. This is TV, they are looking for extremes. I dont think theres anything wrong with what you want and Im sure that guy exists! Lord knows Im a mom and a writer. I like being home. I know one of my best friends husbands is like that. Hes a way better housekeeper and cook than me! Sent from my iPhone

If you're not watching "90 Day Fiance" on TLC, I feel for you. You're missing out! I don't get a lot of time for crap television anymore and "The Bachelorette" lost me at week two this year. Wow, those were... Continue reading
Ugh. Thats a tough one. Because they are often trained to not say or think anything negative of their families. Regardless of how toxic relationships may be. A no-win situation. Sent from my iPhone
Oh hey, I'm interested in your take on the guy fired from Google for his manifesto!
Well, God is giving you that lesson in spades I guess!
I have no idea. I'm the last person to ask for dating advice, but I do think it's tougher because I would never go to a bar. Church can make single women feel like pariahs, so I do think it's tougher on introverts. Especially because if you're looking for another introvert, they're probably at home too. LOL I think forcing yourself to get out and make plans at least once a week helps everything!
That's a good one. I had a longtime close friend cut me off on FB. We raised our kids together so it was pretty cold. But I guess everything has a season right? But my point is, I guess I don't know when people are giving me hints either.
That's awesome. Remember, you may have to kiss a few frogs. : )
You're a good person even if you say no. Just a friendly reminder. : )
That has been a painful lesson for me too. Why can't church people be real? And the scariest thing is so many people fall for their Instagram perfection. Life is SO not like that and Christians do a disservice to God when they pretend in my humble opinion.
I wouldn't say you're meant to be alone. You can't know that! But I think introverts on dating sites is probably the worst idea ever. I'm sure there are people who would disagree with me.

http://www.lifehack.org/330828/when-people-treat-you-like-they-dont-care-believe-them This is a lesson in life that I need to get through my thick skull. I make a lot of excuses for bad behavior -- trying to find the good in someone that maybe isn't there. It still amazes... Continue reading

She will be beautiful no matter what. And she has to get used to my sense of humor. Im breaking her in. Sent from my iPhone

In my book, "With this Ring, I'm Confused" Ashley Stockingdale's sister-in-law wants her to wear a dramatic dress. A Scarlett O'Hara dress. A tacky gown, if you will. Here's the thing. I'm a child of the 80's. I love me... Continue reading
Yes, I did see those. But Ive forgotten them. Ill have to watch again. Sent from my iPhone
Whats funny about him is going backwards watching the movies and seeing him as a young, handsome actor hes a bit like Brando. Moving backwards, I didnt see that coming! Sent from my iPhone
No! Thank you for the tip!! Sent from my iPhone

Confession: I love French movies -- I could say films, but that sounds so uppity, doesn't it? But I got hooked on them because I could watch them at night without sound. Now I can just turn on closed captioning... Continue reading

I think T Rav is a total toxic personality and a misogynist. He will hate any woman who makes him feel something. Thats my take on him. But Im not impartial. LOL Patricia is not my favorite. A southern matriarch would have more class. Like Camerons mother! And why would she like Landon over Kathryn? At least Kathryn is young enough to make those mistakes. Sent from my iPhone
It ran the gamut of emotions. Loved it! Agree with all your assessments. Sent from my iPhone
