What's in a name?

When I started this blog a few years ago, I struggled with what to name it. I settled for "Four Wonders of Life" because my kids are really truly my greatest joy and wonder.

But the name just doesn't fit. I am a busy woman! I work as nurse, odd hours and weekends. I have a teenager, a school-ager, and two preschoolers. Go ahead and throw in an extra chromosome into the mix for good measure.

Seriously, I live a "crazy life".

So I went to the thesaurus and typed in "crazy life" and came up with my new blog name, "Erratic Bliss"

ERRATIC: "deviating from the usual or proper course in conduct or opinion"; having no certain or definite course; wandering; not fixed"

My daily schedule is ever changing. I always have to be ready for the curve ball. And trust me, it happens daily around here. It usually revolves around Miss Molly. Work allows me to stay home for 8 days in a row and then I end up going to work for 5 out of 7 days. Always an adventure.

BLISS: "perfect happiness; serene joy"

It's no surprise that researching the word "life" produced the word "bliss". I like the word.

Granted, there are days were I need to count to 10, scream, run! The teenager, the chromosomally enhanced child, the school ager that hates to read, the activities, the finances, the job, the hubs!!!! Ugh! How do I acquire the right balance to keep it all straight and narrow?? And well, nothing is perfect. Let's be honest, but for the most part, my life is full of happiness and joy.

So, this is where we are. Enjoying the journey of life with "Erratic Bliss"
