Writing is like being able to put life into a snow globe. It takes the things that are too big and scary and reduces them into a form that I can put away when I want and look at from a distance. It also takes all that’s good in life and captures it into something I can take out when I want and look at close up and keep forever. It makes the bad things into something I can hold…and the good things into something I can hold onto. Both help so much that I need that little souvenir of life.

Struggles with Awesomeness

Here’s Struggle #1. It’s mine. Ever since I got a Gmail address, Blogger will NOT let me sign up to follow some of your awesome blogs. It basically loops me through the process. So if I’m not following your blog, that’s why!! I was originally signed up to Blogger with my primary email address. But once I added Gmail, it doesn’t seem to recognize me. At first I thought a lot of people’s blogs were private. Yes, I am technologically challenged. But since then, I’ve tried shuffling accounts, coordinating passwords, etc. Yet I can sign in to post just fine.  Does anyone know what to do?

Here’s Struggle #2. It’s a student's struggle and my Quote for the Day. I like it so much, I almost gave it its own post.

Spoken by 10th grade boy: When I turn 18, should I change my name to Optimus Prime Megatron? Or should I just name my kid that?


  1. Your problem I can't help you with. I have so many names from misspelling and grandkids signing on on my FB page that I can't get rid of and don't have any idea how to.
    The kid will probably name his kid that. I've heard some doozies in my carrer: Heaven Lee, Pony Boy, Over End, and those are just the three that I can remember off hand.

  2. Thanks, Jennee, glad you enjoyed it, too!

    Over End, Linda? Really? Wow. That should win a prize for random weirdness.

  3. Worse, they called him Ovie. Ewww!

  4. Tammy, sure wish I could help you, but I don't know the techie stuff either! Sorry! :(
    And as far as weird names go....I'm hoping that kid will get some sense by the time he has his own kids...but, ya never know, either! :o

  5. I have a suggestion to the problem...try a hot mail account. It still is free and if it works just use that for your blog.

    I loved problem #2. I would have told him it would not fit on a driver's license :)

  6. Sorry...I'm a technodweeb...I fix problems like that all the time (by calling my husband). *sigh* Love the quote. That is such a 10th grade boy thing to say! Considering some of the odd names out there, i.e. Moon Unit and Dweezil Zappa to name only two, Optimus Prime Megatron doesn't sound that far fetched.

  7. Ugh! I hate when Blogger creates problems. Hope you're able to get this one straightened out!



Any return "messages" are appreciated!
