Yesterday while I was sitting out on the front veranda(it was a balmy 20 C and the kids said “It’s too hot!” are they KIDDING? It was wonderful!!) I was “ambushed” by 2 LDS (“Mormon”) missionaries and I was “cornered” and couldn’t run into the house and leave( as that would be rude) and had no place to hide so I was basically “stuck” there and had to talk to them. It was my hubby’s fault, really; they have been coming around for awhile and he talks to them and told them to come back any time,which I don’t think is fair to them as it “leads them on”; giving them false hope, so afterwards I gave him the Evil Eye and tried to bore a hole into the centre of his forehead with my mind for setting me up. As you may know, about 10 YRS ago I joined the LDS church but left 7 YRS ago to return to the Catholic Church and I was hoping when I told them that that they would go away but they didn’t and asked me why I left,interrogating me, so I told them(even though I hadn’t planned on bringing it up),and we ended up having quite a lively 30 min. discussion about that and about God,and religion(my mother was there the whole time and said ,”They must think you’re opinionated!” but they ASKED so I told them!) and I let them know what I believe,too, and perhaps maybe I even “converted” THEM ( ha ha) but I was polite and respectful about it, and I told them I still do respect the Mormons and admire their high moral character, clean living and pro-life, pro-family stance, but that it just wasn’t for me due to the other issues I had. My hubby said that their church was “funner”(then RC) but then why didn’t HE ever get baptized into it then,and besides, you don’t go to church to be “entertained”; you go to worship GOD,and if you don’t fully believe 100% in your heart then you shouldn’t really be there, and there were just too many strange things and things I felt were blasphemous and that contradicted the Bible(and too much emphasis on the Book Of Mormon above the Bible) and I thought Joseph Smith was a fraud, for example,and if I didn’t believe certain things(some that were the basis of the church) it didn’t feel right being there or bringing my kids up in it and I don’t think there’s just one “true” church and that all the others are “wrong”(I mean, doesn’t EVERY religion think that THEY are the one true right one?) and that instead there are many paths to God(as long as you don’t worship idols or any other false gods), just different ways of worshipping Him.
As well,my hubby grumbled he’s “Tired of everyone always asking him everything all the time” and I told him then maybe he shouldn’t have had kids then, I heard the new passports aren’t going to have the fingerprints and retinal scans on them afterall, thank God,but they’re going to have images of redneck loser hockey on them(spare me!) and I never got my magazine in the mail yet this month ether and it usually comes on the 21st or 22nd so I e-mailed them and they said it was sent out so if it doesn’t come next week they’ll send me out a replacement issue, but doesn’t it figure though; it likely got delivered to the wrong address or lost or stolen in the mail,my mother and the 16 YR old are going back to the Caribbean next weekend and there’s this massive hurricane there that’s turning into this Super Storm, they’re calling the Storm Of The Century and they say it’ll hit the worst here on occult Hallowe’en so it’ll be a wash-out for the little Satanists( ha ha!) so maybe God’s way of putting a damper on Satan’s celebration, and next door only 2 of the guys working on their veranda actually ever do any work and the other 3 just stand around watching and do nothing; it’s like the 3 stooges(in this case the 5 stooges) and they got the wrong size wood and had to go back and exchange it and one of them hit his thumb with a hammer; I swear the dumb rednecks here are just sooo inept and stupid,and the plumbers were over there all day , too, so I guess they still don’t have any drainage, and my friend from grade 10 married an American a couple of months ago and sold her house here a couple of weeks ago and they moved there( I mean, who’d want to live in this country, right?) but now there’s a problem with immigration and she had to come back(he’s still there) and has to stay with family now and work it out from this end and if I was her I’d just go over there as a visitor and just stay there! What a hassle!
