. . . . all the way home

This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed home.
This little piggy had roast beef.
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way home.

Last night I was telling my mom the story of my blog’s web address. I came up (well, “we” came up) with the we oui whee part, but my husband Duane added the WOW. Isn’t that an interesting masculine-feminine joining! And both of us thought we knew what the other was talking about, but we didn’t, and then we “discovered” it together. What a delightful and happy “accident.”

Last year, I had another website, not a blog, with the we oui whee name. I asked my son Matt (m@) and he got the domain name for me. (He also got Duane’s “Lemons” racing website.) Well, the account lapsed, and we lost the domains. Matt was too busy to get them reinstated, so Duane just decided to do it himself. So he called the company and got both names back. Then he began setting them up. This is all new for him so it took a few days. He said he was going to try to get the WOW part off, but I could start playing with it. Well, impatient me, was not content to wait and sent out the blog link including the WOW, telling people it might be removed later.

Now my understanding of the WOW was that the program just somehow automatically added it and he just didn’t know how to remove it and he was waiting for Matt to have time to help him with it. But, it turns out that Duane added the WOW because he thought that’s why I chose we oui whee, because the initials spelled WOW. And I didn’t even realize the initials spelled that!

The first comment back on my blog was from my sister. She said, after reading my blog, that WOW seemed just right! And Matt said I really might want to drop it because it was a common acronym for World of Warcraft. Well I laughed. Wouldn’t it be funny if someone looking for that came to my blog?!

I thanked Duane so much for adding the WOW, and I’m keeping it.

As I finished up with my story, my mom said, and it’s also “wee wee wee all the way home.”  I said yes, I know, but it’s only 3 wee’s and that little rhyme has 4 wee’s, so it’s close. She told me she says it with 3 wees. So I looked it up on Google, which led to Wikipedia, and sure enough – 3 wees all the way home! Thank you mom!

And I remember my membership class at St. Francis and David asking us for our dreams, visions, something like that. I told him about my dream of having a little home of my own. It has been a persistent and recurring deep desire for many years. And 2 years ago, I drew a “self-portrait” of me, and I was the home (my body was a house, with a window into my heart, and a door into my belly – the door knob my belly button). And at the end of August of this year I signed a spiritual Commitment that I drafted. It was another strong “homecoming.” And in September, I got back “home” from Oregon. And now, finally, I am at home with myself. And I am at home with God. And “we” are having the time of our lives.

And, of course, a song comes to mind, and it’s called “True” by Spandau Ballet:

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
So true…….
Funny how it seems…..
Always in time, but never in line for dreams.
Head over heels, when toe to toe,
This is the sound of my soul. (This is the sound)

I bought a ticket to the world,
But now I’ve come back again.
Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
When I want the truth to be said…….

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.

With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue,
Dissolve the nerves that have just begun.
Listening to Marvin all night long.
This is the sound of my soul. (This is the sound)

Always slipping from my hands,
Sand’s a time of it’s own.
Take your seaside arms and write the next line,
Oh, I want the truth to be known…….

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.

*break*

I bought a ticket to the world,
But now I’ve come back again.
Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
When I want the truth to be said…….

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah
I know this much is true.

I know this much is……..
I know this much is…….
True.

I know this much is……
I know this much is…….
True.

I know this much is……
I know this much is…….
True.

I know this much is……
I know this much is…….
True.
