Once Upon a Time...
Updated: Feb 1, 2018
When I was a little girl just ironing my cat, I wished I had a blog about life and change and stuff. So I made this blog.
Once upon a time I came up with the idea to publish a blog. I also came up with the idea of winning the lottery but I’m having just slightly more trouble making that one happen. The blog has proved to be almost as difficult to bring to fruition since I’m such a highly skilled procrastinator. I promised myself that by January 2017 I would choose my blog idea. And I did! I chose to start a blog about changes. Life changes and how to get through them. We all go through it at some point. Our lives change completely and we find ourselves looking something like this:
I actually had another blog that I loved many years ago called Confessions of a Cheap Chick. It was a humorous DIY blog and I started it just to get myself writing. Don’t bother looking up that blog. It died a quick internet death nine months after it began. My ex talked me into shutting it down. That was the year my whole life imploded and the shit hit the fan. Three years out and I’m still dealing with it. Cleaning the shit off the wall of life, if you will. This one needed a large mop. One day I’ll tell you all about it. But right now, we’ve just met and I barely know you.
Since the epic life implosion, I’ve had to do some fancy scrambling to put the pieces back together and figure out what to do next. The biggest hurdle was survival. I was starting over from scratch with less than no money and there were many days when I thought I might not make it. But I did.
Sometimes you just have to adjust your tiara and make it work.
And do you know what kept me going? Besides friends, family and an intense fear of starvation? Humour. Most days I feel like my life is some weird sitcom and no matter how bad things get, there always seems to be something funny that happens to bring it all back into perspective. Life can throw it at ya, but there’s always a way to get through it. And if not, there’s always wine.
Where the hell was I? Oh, yes. This blog.
I came up with my new blog idea in January of 2017 and I hit the “publish” button on January 1, 2018. Did I mention I’m a highly skilled procrastinator? In my defense, a lot of stuff happened this past year that prevented me from actually doing this blog. I was in a coma, I circumnavigated the world in a hot air balloon, and I got scared and procrastinated a little bit. Spoiler alert; only one of these three things is true. I’ll let you figure out which one.
The good news is, I finally got my blog going. As previously mentioned, it’s about life, changes and how to get through it all. I got tripped up trying to make it serious and it just wasn’t working for me. So I’m going back to what I know best and that’s making fun of pretty much everything that happens to me. That’s my comfort zone.
So be warned. This blog, should you choose to read it, will be full of whatever I feel like writing about. And I can pretty much guarantee that it will contain intermittent swearing with a chance of inappropriateness.
