Brain Kudos

I started back to work the other day after having my 1st summer off in decades!
I spent the whole summer playing with my new grandson! What a treat that has been.
There have been so many things I haven't had to think about until 2 days ago and its been wonderful.
Twenty minutes into day 1, already my mind was flooded with all the details of preparing for a new school year. Even though it was a little overwhelming at first; I became totally impressed with the workings of the mind! What an amazing organ our brain is!!! It steps up to the plate on demand with no notice! Very cool!

What's in a Name?

I officially and legally changed my last name. No I didn't recently get married or divorced (already divorced). I decided to let go of my previous names that had been borrowed from my father and 2 husbands and create one that would be mine and only mine until I 'check out'! I took the first couple of letters from each of my kids' names, put them together and VOILA! The funny part is that I have gotten such an interesting variety of reactions to this! I had no idea it was going to create such a ruckus! Everything from "How cool is that!" to "Really?" to "Is that legal?" to a facial expression of extreme shock and no words!
Sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!!! I love it and so do my kids!!! Are there any better reasons to keep it?
