Updates of All Kinds... (possibly of zero interest)

#1  It's June 1st and I turned the heat on.  

#2 This cat is too big for this box.

#3  I think, despite my fears that I may have scared them off with my unbridled zaniness, that I may have made a new friend.  Like a potential real friend.  

#4 Eustace Conway... he's a maniac.  Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert was a good read.  I felt like she managed to really give a good full scope portrayal of his personality.  If you are interested in biographies check it out.  Also I think there is a History Channel show featuring him coming out soon.  

#5  Mr F and I have started watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix.  It's no Lost, but there are 76 episodes, so that's something.  I'm into the young qb's storyline and the coach & wife, we're also into despising the sponsor/car dealer guy, but unfortunately Minka Kelly is not a good actress and her plot lines are unbelievable... plus it disturbs me when grown ups play teenagers.  So the jury's still out.  

#6 Here are the girls "Fighting for Jesus!" in their new school uniforms.  Kid has a very tongue in cheek sense of humor about attending a religious school. She can be really, really funny.  She gets it.... understands what we believe and don't believe, and is comfortable with the compromise.  She is also super comfortable playing the role of a religious kid, much to her own amusement.  (Did I mention she had me buy her a personalized Bible?) 

#7 Baby is less subtle with her opinions.  While we were out to eat the other night she yelled out "Lutherans are losers!" Later she explained, "Well, they are losers, they don't believe that gay people can get married."  (proudest parenting moment around here, FYI) We're also working on the frequency with which she takes the Lord's name in vain.  For all of her cuteness she has a bit of rebel in her.  Hopefully she won't start smoking on the playground.

We had a similar moment to what baby said in our house this week. One of my daughters friends was told on Facebook that she wasn't a christian because she believed gay people should have the right to marry. My daughter commented that those people were judging, which isn't at all a chrsitian thing to do. Love my girl!

Julie said...

OMG, I love your kids.

And I don't know why it did so much, but your comment about the cat being too big for box really cracked me up.

Gigs said...

I laughed out loud about the cat in the box too. Hilarious. Good stuff in this post, Mrs. F... Sounds like life is good!

PS: I love that (per Baby) your cats are in a gay marriage. How awesome is that?

Chris Howard said...

Baby sounds a lot like Libby - smart, funny, opinionated and stubborn as hell. :-)

Andrea said...

Oh my the cat cracks me up,but baby takes the cake. This next school year should bring lots of good furious family fun can't wait to hear about the religous school experience.

Andrea said...

religious* geez it's apparent my birthday has made me lose the ability to spell:)

Mrs Furious said...

Happy Birthday, Andrea :)

word... your daughter's got it right.

that cat in the box cracks me up... you should have seen it in person. He's a ham.

Definitely things are going better. We are down to two steps left on the reconstruction (outdoor light fixture and driveway repair, both of which are outside!!!) and I'm feeling 100% better.

I'm interested to see how she is at this school. She's smart but she doesn't listen and she is not a team player. And she really doesn't care what you think of that. Complete opposite of Kid.

Supermom said...

I can so see baby taking a smoke break on the playgroud since she's a bad girl. :)

Yeah, Baby M is married to our neighbor girl. They even had a ceremony and kissed, they told me.

Kids are cool!

I hope that you are feeling better. Thank you for being there when I needed someone the most recently! xoxox

I love this whole entire post-everything about it. I'm so glad that Baby has a mind of her own; I'm the same way, even though my parents raised me in a conservative Christian home they taught me to think for myself. That's how I ended up the Liberal Christian I am who votes in favor of gay marriage because its not up to me to judge.

Your kids are awesome, this school is going to make for some great blog fodder, no?
