Today marks the one year blogaversary (or is it blogoversary? Or blogiversary?) of …life’s about a dream.
What started as a virtual scrapbook or baby book, evolved into quite a creative outlet.
I have ‘met’ so many people (check the blogroll that DESPERATELY needs to be updated).
I have reconnected with my ΑΧΩ sisters from Clemson and discovered several readers are sisters, too!
I am able keep tabs on family members and ‘real life’ friends.
So here are the ins and outs.
Last year around Christmastime, BP was doing computer stuff with a coworker here at the house for several days in a row. During a break, the coworker told me his wife had a blog.
HyperactiveLu was the first blog I ever read. Through hers, I started reading others. Then, one Saturday morning, BP came to me and said, “I set a blog up for you. It should be much easier than the website we have.” Whah-lah. A blog was born.
The title …life’s about a dream came from Frick. He was actually singing the song, “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” and instead of singing, “life is but a dream” he sang, “life’s about a dream”. We thought that was pretty profound, especially coming from a three year old (at the time). And, it is what it is. Our life is a dream. Well, some days. 🙂
BP’s name is derived from his initials. It’s also short for Big Papa. It’s taken from the song Big Papa by Biggie Smalls. This name is actually what our friends began calling him after I became pregnant with our second child when Frick was just 6 months old. What a stud. (There you go, Cassie. I finally came out with the story.)
Frick and Frack are nicknames for our sweet children. I used to teach part time in the public schools, job sharing a classroom with another girl. She and I would joke around, calling ourselves Frick and Frack. I thought it was clever and started calling the boys Frick and Frack around the house. But we also call them Chaos and Havoc (because they prefer wrestling as an after school activity) and The Farmers (because they are up with the sun each morning). But then, Uncle B tried to get me to change their blog names to Fred and Barney. Click HERE for that reasoning. Alas, Frick and Frack remain.
The Money Pit is our house. We started a major renovation process here in May 2008. In true renovation fashion, our budget tripled as they began to chip away at our house. The Fix It Guys kept uncovering all kinds of damage. And our bill kept growing. Hence, The Money Pit. Like the movie. Only better.
Dreamers refers to you, my loyal readers of …life’s about a dream. As I said above, this is a virtual scrapbook for my children and our memories. But when I see that others are reading and commenting here on the blog or through emails, I know my words are not just for us. And that’s flattering. Thank you for reading. And commenting.
