Wait….I Did What? Part 1

Fact: So… it turns out I bought a domain name during one of my insomniac moments in the wee hours of the night.

Fact: I woke up to emails of congratulations from my new server host with all the information I needed and I was like….

Hold up... are you for real?

Fact: My memories of this faithful event are limited, and, before you ask, no alcohol was not involved in the process. OK, so let’s recount what I know. One night, while covering night float, I found myself with a bit of relished silence from my all powerful, PTSD inducing pager.

Scared Cat

When my pager goes off sometimes I”m like…

Since I had no patient tasks to complete, I decided to catch up on reading some of the blogs I subscribe to. So, I opened the latest blog post from Running with Spoons. Reading and thoughts collided and somehow I found myself reading through Amanda’s at Running with Spoons “Start a Blog” Page. As I was reading I thought, “Who knew! She makes starting a blog sound so easy!” Then, of course, my pager went off and that was the end of that. Or so I thought..

Obviously, it wasn’t! Night float really messes up my sleep and it is difficult for me to adjust back to days, particularly because I’m a chronic insomniac (sigh). So, the incident actually happened a couple days later in the middle of the night when I had trouble sleeping.

How I feel most nights

How I feel most nights

In a fit of sleep-deprived craziness who knows what, I guess I decided to throw caution to the wind and buy myself a domain name. So..yep..that’s pretty much what I remember.

So, as I’ve had time to let a storm of emotions what has happened sink in I suppose this was my subconscious way to tell myself it is time to share all of my knowledge and talk about things I love. So -to my brain- I’m all like…mmm…hmmm…

I see what you did there meme

I know it’s super difficult to eat healthy, exercise, cook etc. when you are tight for time, and low on funds. Efficiency, resourcefulness and not wasting have become part of my daily routine while trying my best to juggle all of these things with my hectic schedule and long hours. These are just some of the many things I’m thinking about sharing with you as time goes on.

Please bear with me as I stumble through figuring out how this blog thing works flawlessly excel at creating a blog. The beginning appearance and functionality will surely be a work in progress. If you think to yourself..

Something is different..I'm sure of it.

I swear something is different…

You are probably right You should probably expect radical changes… or maybe just small additions.

Up next is the quick progression of emotions the evolution of my ideas about the blog and the direction I want to take it…well at least I think. Who knows! We shall see. My thoughts on the subject have changed so much in the past few days that  I found myself editing and re-editing my first post to incorporate this. So I’ve changed it a bit, and it will be more like aaaa… multi-part, all enthralling tale of how this blog came to be and where it might be going? Obviously, you aren’t going to want to miss out on the play by play moments of this huge life event and see what this blog is going to be all about. I’m pretty excited about where I think I can take this blog and I am looking forward to meeting you guys!

What about you guys? Have you had impulse moments like this? How did it turn out?

Bloggers..do you remember your early days? Did you go through roller coaster emotions?

    Wahoo! Welcome to the blog world, lady!! I have a feeling you’re going to love it 😀 I spent a loooong long time going back and forth on starting a blog (and then coming back to blogging after a long absence), but actually getting down to it and doing was super impulsive. Sometimes that’s the best way 😀

      Thanks Amanda! You can certainly take credit on helping me take the leap if you’d like. I’ve been enjoying your blog for years now. I think once I get a hang of the “how do I do ___…” (insert anything at this point haha) it will be much better. I’m excited to see where it can go and am hoping that the blog will grow.

    Welcome to the blogosphere! Your story is about the funniest beginning I’ve ever heard! Too cute. I wish you the best of luck in joy as you begin this adventure. This is one of those impulse things that will be a wonderful thing, for sure!

      Thank you so much! This whole thing is so crazy! I think you’re right on the last part there. I can already feel the positive effect working on this blog has had for me mentally!
