The Post In Which I Announce My Intention To Have An Announcement.

I’ve had something on the brain for a while now. Something I’ve wanted to blog about, but haven’t. Life doesn’t always follow the nice neat path you have for it, so part of my hesitation has been not wanting to Jump The Gun. Count My Chickens Before They Hatch. Step On Cracks In The Sidewalk. (Wait, no, that one's okay.)

Parts of me wonder if it’s possible. If we’re ready. (Does anyone really truly ever feel ready? Like, 100%?) If it can go as well as I hope it can. If I can keep my sanity during all that time. And if I talk about it before there’s an It to talk about, am I jinxing something?

I'm scared.  Totally nervous.  Extremely excited about what could be.  Making adjustments in advance.

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the past two months consulting with new doctors. “Assembling my A-Team”, as someone put it. They’ve all been great so far, and everyone agrees the time is right. I even made an appointment with a new endocrinologist this morning, which is kind of a big deal for me, considering I’d sort of sworn them off.

What’s all the hub-bub about? Well, you might be able to guess. I’m not the first to write about this, and I won’t be the last. There is a journey A and I want to pursue.  I may not have an announcement yet – but I do have an intention.  And a hope.


  1. How exciting! It's going to be great!

  2. I'm crossing my fingers and my toes. :)

  3. YAY for you! I'm sure it will be everything you hope for.

  4. I'll be keeping an even closer eye on you, as my drive for a sub-6.0 A1C has been for the exact same reason.

    Good luck! Maybe we'll be in this boat together?

  5. I know this comment is later than the post but I sometimes don't know if i'm 100% ready either, and as I am learning I have to jump on it now, or it may only get worse for me. I never know. I also made the step to get a pump and cgm while taking on all of this. Good Luck Kim!!!!
