Drowning in Whine

When I started this blog about a year ago, I could not find a title for it that I really liked. It's been bugging me ever since. I wanted something different and catching.

Recently I saw a title for a blog that read, "Drowning in Laundry." I don't even think I clicked on the blog to read it. I just laughed at the title and moved on. Lately, however, the idea of a new title for the blog has really been eating at me. Finally, I may have come up with one. So, I'm trying it out. If you all hate it, leave a comment and let me know (anonymous if you'd like).

I'm a regular red wine drinker. I like to joke around and quote from a book I read a while back that, "4:00 is the new 5:00" in regards to drinking wine in the evening. In reality, Matt and I have adapted to the Portuguese lifestyle and do drink wine almost nightly with meals. However, I almost never reach for wine when the kids are bugging me or I'm stressed out. I usually blog about it instead (or call my mom).

I like the thought of drowning myself in wine. So, I took a spin off of that - Because all parents have days when all their kids do is whine and we get to the point when we just don't know how much more whine we can take. As we find ourselves drowning in the whines of a child, many of us think, "I'd love to drown myself in a bottle of wine right about now."

Thus, I came to: "Drowning in Whine."


Note: Of course, I love my kids. The title is supposed be sarcastically humorous. And, I haven't checked to see if someone else in the blogosphere has this title. I do not market the reading of my blog in any way (aside from friends and family) so I haven't even searched to see if this name is a first or not.

Very cute title! I think it's perfect for where you are and what you are doing.

I've told Steve that if I ever wrote a memoir (which I NEVER will) I would call it "Chasing Chaos" and I've thought about that for the title of my blog but it seems a little negative for me. I'm trying to think of a way to make it more positive. Any ideas, Miss Creative? ;)

Oh how I agree. Campbell is starting to throw tantrums and wants to do EVERYTHING by herself. Ellie is moody to the nth degree occasionally. And I'm starting to feel like just a glorified babysitter.

Arrrggh!
