Slight Turbulence

Bring it on, bring it on, bring it on. From here to the eyes and the ears of the 'verse, that's my motto. Or at least it would be, if I start having a motto.

Title and Tag Line

I selected the blog name Slight Turbulence when I decide to move from iWeb to WordPress. Apple was discontinuing it’s service and I loved using iWeb and all the features. The kids even had their own site named iBartolome Web Show.

I had already been blogging for about two years after completing the “post everyday for a year” challenge I came across. I started off thinking my blogging would be a public journal of sorts; an expansion of thoughts I posted on Twitter. This was before Twitpix and Instagram and around the time Facebook was swarmed with everyone in the entire world!

I had finished re-watching Firefly and finally gotten to watch the Serenity movie so pulling a phrase or quote from the series seemed like a great idea. It describes how I like to portray my life. As if everything is going along pretty well with just a few occasions of slight turbulence. Of course really, it could all explode!

The key is to remain calm, as if we were just having a regular day. Shrug off the negative, focus on the positive, accept the definition of interesting as “Oh God, oh God, we’re going to die” and make the most of it because really, life wouldn’t be living if their weren’t any turbulence.

Today’s assignment for Blogging 101 was to “Edit your title and tagline.”

I’m keeping my title. I did edit the tagline.

It does occur to me that my explanation of the title and the title itself may lead readers to expect crazy, disastrous stories from my life. That will happen some of the time. I think of it this way: Remember when we had land lines? Phones without caller ID? If you had called me early in the morning. Not dead in the middle of the night, but around the time I should probably be up and about getting ready to be productive. Of course I’m not awake, however, if you phoned, I answered. I answered with the most perky, wide awake voice I could muster. I also claimed I was awake already. Yup, that’s what this blog has been. Even with the title, I have shared pretty much the good stuff. Perhaps I will share more of the turbulent now that I have revisited my title. I can already think of a few topics:

  • KidC’s college aspirations and how we will pay for it
  • My job position ending in June
  • Communication issues between the DH and me
  • The relationship I don’t have with my sister
  • Home repairs that cost a fortune
Gracious, my life is full of turbulence. Maybe Serenity would be a better title!

A couple of Cris’ friends are considering juicing. It’s a big commitment that seems to yield big results, however, that’s not the kind of commitment I’m willing to undertake just now. Instead, Cris suggested a product called Green Vibrance.

This powder is made of “71 fine certified organic concentrated foods and extracts selected and balanced to support good health.” Basically, it’s a dose of all the vegetables and other really, really healthy stuff that I should be eating daily, in powder form.

We went today to buy a small container of the powder that smells like dry hay. You mix it with water or juice and drink a serving a day. We have enough for a week. Today is Day 1.

First impression: With the tart taste of cranberry juice, the taste is pretty disguised – until you get to the bottom of the glass and realize you really didn’t mix the powder well enough. Then bleh!

I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
