Monday night ramblings

Do any of you have a hard time thinking of titles for your blog entries? This truly has to be the worst part about blogging for me. I love everything else--except trying to think of a stupid title. I always seem to come up with a corny "oh my goodness that is so stupid and if I let people know my mind is this corny they will never read another post" title almost immediately. The problem is, that corny title just keeps floating in my head and blocks me from thinking of another title that will help me save face. Any suggestions?

Anyways, the point of this post before I rabbit trailed was to tell you that I am flying with all 3 kids tomorrow by myself (again--I know.) and to ask for your prayers--I am a little nervous.


Back to my topic on blog titles: I was going to title this post: Oops, I did it again, but decided I would rather save face :).

Which brings me to this conclusion: You know what one of the best things about moving to a new place or starting a new job is? You have complete control over letting people know how weird you are. You know how you feel the first time you screw things up and the real you comes out? All those hopes of being a "new, sophisticated, quiet person" (that's always my dream at least--sophisticated and quiet) are over you just want to kick yourself. Yeah, well--I'm kicking myself a lot lately.

Hi, yes, I ramble too!! Funny thing, I saw you at Dr. Salland's office yesterday with your beautiful baby girl. I recognized the t-shirt. Today while surfing Heather's blog roll, I came across yours (trying to get Holly Farver). I recognized Jack. I volunteered in the pre-school and Jack was in my class (I think Easter). It was a Friday night service and all the kids were exhausted. Jack was attached at my hip. I couldn't put him down. He was so sweet and loving. I will never forget his big blue eyes. It's nice to finally see the connection. Next time I see you, I'll say hello. Should have yesterday based on the t-shirt, but was afraid to step outside my box. Anyway, just wanted to drop a line, can't wait to see those Christmas pics. Congrats on the baby girl. I have two boys myself and could use a little more girl power. Kristin

I do the same thing with the titles! I am pretty lame at coming up with them and some of them are so cheesy, but I say just go with it! I love your blog, and you!

Hope you have a safe trip!!

You brave woman!!! You'll have to let us know how it went and if you had any special angels to help this time around.

Too funny! I agree about the title. Such a challenge. As for the do-over, I really think we all deserve at least one. I could learn to be quiet. My family would disagree but I would be willing to try!
