Disclaimer: the two topics in the title don't actually go together. It is however how I often talk (one of the few traits I inherited from my mother), aka, the gift of stringing half thoughts together into a single sentence.
So they tell me it is Lent now and by the ashes I got on my forehead yesterday and the growling of my stomach because of COURSE I was starving in between meals, even though I normally am not, I am guessing "they" are right. Lent has always been an... interesting season for me. It's hard to get into the 'feeling' of the season, and not 'feeling' like it's a time of prayer and penitence makes it difficult to be prayerful and penitential. I usually try to pick something to do in addition to something to give up but I haven't decided on anything yet. Ideas?
As for the Mom-Blogger part. I was thinking the other day of new names for my blog and the thought "A Little Bit of Wine" came into my head. I loved it, but the more I thought about it I realized that was a much better name for a Mom Blog. Now I cannot wait until I am a mom with a blog, because I am totally using that title. I even have the header image thought up. (It's one of my kids holding a glass of wine).
Having stored that idea away for future use, I tried to think of more names. A few weeks ago when I was walking down the stairwell at work, I saw the sign by the elevator that read "in case of fire, use stairs", and I thought "Now that sounds like the title of a book!" (Probably written by Kelly (This An't the Lyceum) or Simcha Fisher). I thought of the title again today wondering if I could use that as a blog title, but alas! I've realize that it would also make an awesome Mom Blog title, but not a single girl blog title.
Guys I'm claiming this now. When I'm all grown up with kids, I am having a blog title A Little Bit of Wine and once I get a good sized following I will write a profound, yet humorous book about parenting and spiritual stuff and all that title In Case of Fire, Use Stairs. Got that? 'k, thanks, bye.
