Success! (sort of)

Thanks to sabrenaut, I managed to successfully change the errant name of my blog from QFHA to QFQA.  I’m not sure which word–“humble” or “quaint”–better describes us, but it works for now.

Today is the annual Chamber Singers retreat, and I look forward to meeting my new group of twenty-three girls in a couple of hours.  I had a schedule for the day which is somewhere on my desk at school, but the format runs the same from year to year.  Introductions, welcome, sing, pretend to know something about Dalcroze and movement, eat pizza, share choral CD critiques, sing, talk about the year, sing some more, say “farewell” until next week.  At the forefront of my mind is remembering to call Bruno’s Pizzeria during the morning break so that we actually have lunch.  Important stuff, you know.

First forays into blogging

This was inspired by a friend’s recent post to her blog.  I need to start writing more about the absurdities and hilarities that occur on an hourly basis in my life, so why not start a blog?  It will be shared, but most importantly, it’s for my own healing process as I work through the complicated twists and turns of my mind.

The first and foremost hilarity–I can’t seem to figure out how to change the name of my blog.  QFHA is an abbreviation for “Quimby-Fischer-Quaint-Abode,” pronounced “Kafka.”  Yes, it should read “QFQA.”  For some reason I substituted “humble” for “quaint,” and now I can’t fix it.  Back in 2007 when we moved into my house, it was called “QHHQ” or “Quimby-Hopkins Head-Quarters.”  Even though technically there are still two small Q-H’s who live here, we needed a more representational moniker for the roof over our heads.  So QFQA it is.

I’ll be adding photos, updates, all the usual stuff that goes into a blog.  For now, bear with my self-indulgence to see my tiny world opened up to the rest of the internet.
