My world has changed! Will I?

When I started this blog, I did it to share information about chinchillas. At that time, I bred and sold chinchillas as a hobby. My full time job was an RN in a small obstetrics, gynecology and nursery unit. My other full time “job” was as a wife and mother of 3 boys, all still at home. We owned our home and spent much time remodeling it.

My world has vastly changed since then.

This person who once seemed to have it all together, has fallen apart at the seams!

I have attempted to blog about my unraveling in previous posts. Some posts I deleted! Some posts I altered with the more personal information edited out! Some posts, I have just eluded to “things” without putting anything too personal out there. I had often wished that I had started this blog under a pseudo name. Then, I could blog freely … just let it all hang out! To my knowledge, the only person who has found me online is my brother. If I am wrong, please speak up & let me know you are here!

If you have made it this far, I applaud you! I do have a point in here somewhere!

I wondered across a site … “Blair” does not need my shout out. She says she has something like 7000 to 11000 visitors each day! But, I loved her site because she speaks openly, candidly & makes no apologies for that! Her thoughts seem to be that if she can speak freely about one subject that pertains to her life and end up connecting with and helping someone else in the process, that makes her “confessions easier to swallow” for herself! That is exactly how I felt when I would write a really personal post, but I would delete it and return to the safety of my hidden world. So, where do I go from here? Not really sure! But, I do feel inspired to be more honest with myself and more open to sharing me with the world. Sure, my way won’t be as interesting as “Blairs.” But, we all have to start somewhere, right?!?


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.

  1. Gina, I read your posts whenever they come out and I always consider them a treat. They’re always upbeat and honest and I think they’re just a joy to read. Don’t beat yourself up if you’re not sticking to your goal right now, there will be days when everything you touch turns to gold and you won’t be able to fail, and I hope that day comes for you soon. It sounds like you’ve devoted your entire adult life to giving to others when they need it most. I hope good things come back to you soon. Chin up! Good stuff is on its way!


  2. Thank you! I can always count on you to put a smile on my face when I am down! My son asked last night as I watched Biggest Loser … why are they always crying on here? I tried to relay to him how tough it is to relose this same 10 pounds I have been losing & gaining for so long and how emotional it must be to make a breakthrough! So many ups and downs along the way! Today is good … keeping my eye on the prize!
