Seriously?????

Megs woke up in the middle of the night with a stomach bug... which is why I'm posting while the rest of you are in church! :) I hate that I am unable to deal with puke. I had to wake Robert up so he could do the cleaning... otherwise I was going to make a mess as well... any suggestions here?
Onto why I am really posting...
Last night Robert and I went to Matt and Amy's to eat dinner and play some cards. The weather was nice, so we let the kids go outside to play. A neighbor had set a bike ramp up, so the guys went outside to watch the kids try to kill themselves. Not to be left out... Amy and I went outside as well. There were some people siting in a driveway a couple of houses down... women that I knew from a previous church. Well, apparently they had a lot to say as Amy and I walked out of the house... which I didn't hear until we all came back inside and my husband filled me in. When I stepped out of Amy's garage one of the women asked the other why I was there because she thought we had gotten a divorce... and she said it loud enough for Robert to hear... and in a not very nice tone. Had I been the one to hear it I might've clawed her eyes out... oh, did I mention that this one particular female has never been someone I would call a friend and although I have never been rude to her I would definitely never have a conversation with her about anything of significance in my life? Anyway, here's my issue... the only people from that church who know anything are the few of you who read my blog and one of my bestest friends. I know the women who read my blog pretty well, and I know that they are not the gossiping type and since they are readers they know I'm not divorced. I have known my friend for 9 years and since she's knows every detail of my life, I know she wouldn't have told anyone we were divorced. So... now my wheels are turning... I have some theories... but Robert is insisting I leave it alone. So... just to be clear now... ROBERT AND I ARE NOT DIVORCED... WE SEPARATED TO WORK ON OUR MANY ISSUES AND ALTHOUGH OUR MARRIAGE IS NOT PERFECT THINGS ARE MUCH BETTER NOW! Pass that on please...

Ok... off to mow now... gotta work on my tan somehow...

Edit: While mowing the yard I tried to chop off my leg. We have a riding lawnmower and I had it in the highest gear...hit a big rock and got popped off the seat. I had one leg on the mower and one on the ground... and of course this particular mower has had some southern ingenuity so that it has no safety stop! I managed to right myself and finish the job... but maybe I should just go back to the pus mower...

I am so there with ya on the puke thing...one whiff of the nastiness and I have made an even bigger mess! YUK! Praise the Lord that Nathaniel can clean it up...he's my hero!

Don't let other people and their rude comments get you down. I am so very proud of you and Robert for working through the struggles marriage can bring. God smiles EVERY time he looks down at you and all that you have done for yourself and for your family! Way to go Jessica!

Now if only I could follow my own advice and not let other's comments get me down! It's a hard thing, but I know someday I will find a place where I fit in!

Hope Megan feels better soon! :)

I think one of the many reasons God gave me Clint was bc he can celan up the puke... I can do spit up, I can do poop, and I recently discovered that I can do blood, but not puke! My little one puked on me today (see my blog), and I actually took off my shirt to drive home. I was wearing a sports bra, and women run in those all the time, so I was not officially "indecent" but it was a pretty horrid sight I am sure. There was no way I could drive myself home covered in it though...

About the gossip. I have mentioned before on here about the issues that Clint and I dealt with last year in our marriage and his "addiction", etc... he made it all very public and went forward in church which was so good for him, so cleansing, but as a result, we have dealt with tons of gossip. Robert is right.. you have to just drop it and move on. What others are saying is not important. I know how hard it is and how much you want to defend yourself to those "others" but you have to remember what is important. Dont let them win by making you angry or bitter. I am so proud of you for allowing God to heal your broken heart and attempting to put the pieces back together. It is not easy, but with time, i just know that you guys are going to be a stronger couple for it all!
