Places to Go, People to See

Tomorrow is a big day for the Jenster Clan. We are headed to the Big Apple to see The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. People may be jealous, but let me just tell you something. We deserve this. I deserve this. Getting the tickets was grueling work. My friend, Dan, told me they would be giving…

A New Disorder

My fans have been hounding me about writing some more since it’s been several months. There have been at least two, maybe three people beg for another post, ask for another post, mention there hasn’t been a post since December. Always the people pleaser, I’ve decided to forgo the laundry, dishes and other assorted chores…

Days Four and Five

On the Fourth Day of Christmas… We went to the happiest place on earth! And while Disneyland is a magical place to take children, I can say in all honesty it’s much more fun with grown kids. The only whining came from me and nobody in our party ever cried. Not once. And I’m pretty…

How Many Days of Christmas?

The Jenster Clan ditched the winter wonderland of the East Coast and hopped a plane (or two) for SoCal to spend Christmas with Mr. Jenster’s side of the family.

NoThanks – Day Nineteen

Tonight I’m thankful for a great celebration of the anniversary of my 39th birthday! The morning didn’t start out so well. I had planned to leave early so I could stop by Starbuck’s and get my complimentary birthday beverage. Everything was running on schedule, but I didn’t account for my chatty family. Or the loose…

Crackalackin’…

… as in “here’s what’s happening” or “this is what’s going on.” The Urban Dictionary used it in this example: Bob:  Yo Joe:  Yo, what’s poppin’ fresh? Bob:  Not much kid, what’s crackalackin’  But as usual, I digress. A ton has happened since my one sentence post from a week ago. Kids’ Camp was, as usual,…

Let The Games Begin…

It’s July. The time of year when drinks are cold and asphalt is hot. When clothing appears to be optional and old men wear black socks with their sandals and bermudas. When sweaty people gravitate toward pools, beaches, water parks and the like. And every four years in July we have the Olympics. It’s also…
