I'm on a new journey to pay-it-forward & with the support of my Groupies/friends...

I'm writing a LAP BAND BOOK!!!

11/22/11 Name Change

Just a quickie...

To gain some consistency with the book title, and for ease of people searching for information, I've updated my blog name...actually, I just flip-flopped the title and description.  I'm now LAP BAND GROUPIE (tried to do the 'Lap' lower case or smaller on the home page, but I'm too tech impaired...I'll leave that to Jen, when she gives me a face lift here) At 'The Sweet Spot'.  Nothing much changes...still Band Groupie...BG here!

Hopefully I didn't screw anything up...didn't touch the URL...yet (I have to read up more on the various repercussions of that one).  You should still be a follower and still have me in your 'reading' list, just under the new title, but I'll now be listed under the "L's" (I joined and checked it).  Let me know though if you had any trouble.

As I planned this, I found this a little funny as I grew up being called something other than my name.  A little confusing but 5 siblings; boy and four girls and all the girls are named Mary 'Something' and we were to all go by the 'Something'...except me...'my Something' is my Mom's name and so they decided to call me a derivative of her name.  All this led to lots of confusion....when signing legal documents and we were confused with a sister and her bank accounts, and especially after I got married and added 'what I'm actually called' to my name...I now have four words in my full name...and I always have to check to see which name they have me listed as before signing anything...thanks Mom and Dad!

Long story short...do your babies a favor and call them what you're naming them (yes, middle names are fine).

I deal with the same issues. Since birth I have gone by HALF of my middle name, Patricia - only it's Trisha. Talk about a MESS my whole life!! If someone calls me by my first name they might as well be calling me Bob because it's about that familiar with me. lol

I can't wait to see what jen does for your site. It's weird, but in my Google Reader you are still showing up as "The Sweet Spot". Hmmm...

Lol, I totally agree, just name the kid what you plan to call them! But honestly, it hasn't bothered me that I am a 'Becky', but officially 'Rebekah' :)
