Hi There!

Thanks for taking a few minutes to check out my blog.  My goal in this is to share in my journey of “adulting” thus far while including all the good, bad and ugly. Truth be told it’s definitely been all three, sometimes all in the same day. 

About Me:

My name is Kare and I’m a 31 year old Registered Nurse living in New York. No, not the city.  Not even technically in “Upstate” NY, more like central New York.  Salt city we tend to call it.  Why?  Because for 7-8 months out of the year we are plagued by snow and the subsequent salt from plow trucks on the road.  That or because we have a deep love for salt potatoes.  Actually insider news, I HATE salt potatoes so maybe it’s the latter.

Anyways, when I’m not working as a nurse in radiation oncology I am a busy mom to my 2 kids Carson who’ll be 6 in March and Brynleigh whom turned 4 in October. My level of chaos varies from day to day and even though my kids are my greatest blessing and they give me so much love my heart could implode most days damn is this motherhood S#!* hard.

I married young for this new generation at the bright eyed age of 23 to my high school sweetheart Bob, who was actually Robert when I first met him but I’m sure at some point I’ll get into that. We’ve had some serious highs and lows which I like to believe happens in every marriage but we work hard to keep on the right path and we laugh….a lot. I’m not sure if we laugh more at each other or with each other but seriously it works so if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

Obligatory marital bliss photo from our wedding day. Pre house,job, college, kid stress. When we were getting over 8hrs of sleep a night and we weren’t dealing with mini dictators.

In my spare time I love to read.  My husband will tell you “smut” books but I prefer the term “Romance.”  I also love to clean which is weird and I love going to the gym.  Also weird.  More on those hobbies later.

By the time you read this I’ll probably have a few blog posts already authored.  If I’m being honest I’m nervous about starting this blog because I am an expert in nothing.  Nada. Zilch.  I am always learning while I go but a co-worker of mine sparked a fire inside me when she mentioned I give good advice (Disclaimer those are her words not mine))with a sprinkle of humor and that I should put my thoughts out there for the world to read.  So, if this bombs I’ll eat ice cream & blame her.  Good coping mechanisms right?

I plan on covering so much in this blog.  My brain is so inspired as I type this introduction I want to just keep typing all night which is clearly not a good idea. 

If you want me to discuss a certain topic or have any questions for me please feel free to email me at nursenicholas1@gmail.com.  I promise to keep you anonymous and also promise to give you my non-biased, non-judgmental views on whatever it is you’re facing because in life, we are all in this together.  I mean seriously- has anyone gotten a manual for having the smoothest, most successful, non-stressful life?  If you’re nodding yes to this then I expect said manual overnighted to me.  I’ll email you my mailing address.  SERIOUSLY.

At the end of this I hope you’ll decide keep reading and I hope you find something to take with you out of this blog.  Life is messy but together we can manage through all the things.  Including life, love & chaos.

All my best,
