I had thought earlier today, “I am a blog slacker, and I need to do a blog post.” I was trying to decide do I do a food post, I’ve been thinking a lot about food quirks. Do you peanut butter sandwiches with chili? I do and I love it. Have you ever had a hot dog sandwich? You might ask what the heck is a hot dog sandwich, it’s hot dogs sliced long ways, with onions and miracle whip…don’t yuck it until you’ve tried it.
Then I thought maybe I should do a post about Memorial Day. Isn’t freedom a wonderful thing? I wondered how The Maupin Family spent Memorial Day.
I even thought about doing a post about our Pool Drama that consumed our entire weekend.
However, at 9 p.m. tonight I knew without a doubt I was going to do a blog post about Jon and Kate Plus Eight. Wowza, how depressing. I know a thing or two about a marriage falling apart. It was tearing my heart out to see it happen on national t.v. I can’t imagine Kate’s heartache or her fear. It was obvious tonight that Jon has checked out, I found it humorous he wanted to say his mother says life is all about choices. Grow up Jon. You choose to bring eight children into this world, now raise them. I watched the show with The Baby Girl and usually we laugh and giggle and tonight she just looked so confused. The First Born normally is a huge Jon and Kate fan she decided not to watch the show tonight. She finds it creepy that they are filming the breakdown of their marriage and their kids will see it someday. I find it creepy that Jon is being so nonchalant about what a divorce is going to do to his kids.
I am going to add Jon and Kate to my prayer list, I know better then anyone that a marriage can be saved even when it’s already fallen apart. Kate made the comment that the problems have been going on for about six months, hopefully they are getting professional help. I don’t know any child that isn’t affected by a divorce regardless of how well it’s “handled”.
So I’m afraid Kate might be flying solo, but I believe she will do just fine. Don’t get me wrong I think she is a control freak, but unfortunately I can understand that behavior. When you don’t have a partner that is 100% an adult you start to treat them like a child and I think Jon’s recent behavior has showed how immature he is. Adultery is cowardly.
I doubt I will let The Baby Girl watch Jon and Kate Plus Eight for awhile and I’m not even sure I’ll watch it. Tonight I felt like I was watching a train crash.
