Back At It

I’m back. Again. Did you miss me? No? I didn’t figure you did, but I thought I’d ask anyway. A lot has happened in the year since my last spellbinding post. For one thing, I lost the database to my blog when I switched hosts. Thankfully I had a backup, but my images didn’t transfer…

A Loss of Focus

I’m not sure what my problem is, but I have no focus. None. I can’t even seem to write a to-do list, which is bad because I have a lot to do. But I can’t seem to land on any one thing. So I made cookies for breakfast. Because I need to go to the grocery…

Good Things, Man

  Oh my, but it’s been two-and-a-half months since my last post. I’m sure that is a great disappointment to my reader. Or readers. I think I have two, now. I have many things to tell you! 2017 is looking very promising with an awful lot to look forward to. Today I’m just going to…

Laundry Room Tales

Hi! Let me re-introduce myself. I’m Jen. I’m full of the best intentions. So many good intentions. Really. It’s my follow through that stinks. For example, how many times over the past 10 years of this blog have I seemingly dropped off the face of the earth? That’s a rhetorical question and does not require…

A Change of Scenery

As you can see, I’ve changed the look of my blog. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I’m not in love with the new appearance, but the old look was, you know. Old. Time for a change of scenery. Speaking of a change of scenery, I’m headed down to Myrtle Beach on Monday.…

Cutting It Close

Nothing like waiting until the very last minute. You know, my whole “I must write at least one post in a calendar month” thing. I have six hours and 16 minutes left in October so I need to write something stat! So let’s just play a little game I like to call Holy Random Stories…

NoThanks – Day Thirty, The End

Tonight I’m thankful that I finished NoThanks! I have realized that I am not a daily blogger-type person. Or maybe it’s just that I went more than two months without writing anything and then BAM! I’m having to post something every day. And I really phoned a bunch of the posts in. Like tonight. It’s 9:00…

NoThanks – Day Twenty-Four

Today I’m thankful that there are only six more days of NoThanks left. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I’m running out of things to be thankful for. Quite the contrary. I keep thinking of more and more. It’s the blogging every day that’s about to kill me, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to…

Sticky Notes On The Brain

This picture makes me think of my mind at the moment. I have thoughts on sticky notes plastered all over my brain, but I need to corral those scattered thoughts and make sense of them. To do that, however, I need to carve out a chunk of time and that seems to be a losing battle. Ever since New Mexico…
