Why Kr.An.Ke?

Nobody uses a real name these days and with all the cutsie, somehow symbolic names and titles out there I felt like I couldn't compete. So I just used my name, first, middle, last, two letters from each in order. The first two letters of my first name (Kr), the third and fourth letters of my middle name (An), the fifth and sixth letters of my last name (Ke). Happily, they created Kranke...or "cranky" an adjective meaning ill-tempered or irritable which is, not-so-happily, the way I feel most days. You probably already guessed that I'm a mother or else you would have assumed that I grew up with a cranky mother which I will assure you is not the case. Therefore, it is I, the ill-tempered mother of two who writes this blog. About what I do not yet know.

So there you have it.

*Updated 1/17/2009- I do know what I am writing about now. Everything! Becoming a Godly woman and what that means: headcovering? modest/feminine attire? reading an authorized King James Bible? Homeschooling? Separatism? Biblical Agrarianism? There is so much that it can easily overwhelm but I must press on.
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. - 1 Peter 1:6-9
