April Showers

I hate showers. Especially the kind that involve women. Celebrating weddings. Or babies.

Today, I had not just one, but TWO!

...anxiety... through the roof...
In the car, my sister decided to talk about her debate class... someone said something about, "You can't be raped when you're married." She did amazing on the debate, because she felt so strongly that NO means NO! Even when you're married.

And suddenly, the three of us: mom, sis, and I were talking TOTALLY openly about everything. I would list the topics, but well... I don't wanna... I will say I talked about things I have never talked about outside of my CFC circle.

I was not quiet. I was not meek. I was not kind. I was ME in all my glory... And nobody shat in their pants... (At least that I know of.)

I survived the showers. I don't think I would have if I hadn't had the open talks before hand. I probably would have lost my mind... in ways most unbecoming...

Mel even said she LIKED opinionated Jen. Whoda thunkit?

  1. I agree with Mellen. You are much more interesting when you have opinions. I appreciate that you are more able to share opinions but still able to listen to opinions. I think we all learn more when we have that mindset.
