I just picked the first name that came into my head when I started my blog a couple of months ago, but now as I am listing it on various sites it seems a little generic to me, even if it is accurate, lol... I figured if I'm going to change it I should do it sooner rather than later, but I can't think of anything else.
The name is "Everyday Adventures & Random Thoughts" and is primarily about my 3 boys, twins and a singleton. Also about autism awareness since my boys are each on the spectrum.

Enough people had started reading under the Just An Ordinary Girl domain that I just repointed that domain to the new one.
