A New Disorder

April 5, 2014

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…

On the Christmas Day of Christmas

December 25, 2013

On the 9th Day of Christmas We went back to the beach. Todd and the kids and I drove down to Del Mar beach just south of Newport, Taylor and I with cameras in hand. So much beauty to be captured! I saw a rather large, purple starfish on the rocks beneath the jetty, but…

Halfway Through

December 23, 2013

On the 6th Day of Christmas… We played the tourists. I thought the kids should see Hollywood and Beverly Hills and Venice Beach. So we drove through the crazy, East L.A. traffic to get to Grauman’s Chinese Theater, which isn’t even Grauman’s anymore, but it’s still pretty cool. We walked around and looked at the…

Days Four and Five

December 20, 2013

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…

On the Third Day of Christmas…

December 17, 2013

I sat outside and read. And took pictures like this and texted them to friends who were complaining about a 2-hour snow delay and the unexpected extra snow this morning. I know what you’re thinking. My lack of compassion is as glaring as the bright and warm sun that’s shining through the trees in this…

How Many Days of Christmas?

December 17, 2013

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. Since every day is an adventure when you’re West side it should make for some fairly decent blog fodder. “Fairly decent” meaning same mundane but with…

A Month At A Time

Here it is, two days after Thanksgiving and the very last day in November. I really need to plan my time a little better. THANKFULNESS If you were around…

Cutting It Close

October 31, 2013

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…

I Need Therapy

September 18, 2013

I know what you’re thinking. I can almost hear it. “Yes, Jenster, we know. We’ve been saying you need therapy for a very long time.” Well it’s not THAT kind of therapy I’m talking about. I saw the doctor yesterday and it turns out I have only a slight medial meniscal tear. I also have…

MRI Lullaby

September 13, 2013

Remember how last time I had tried to trick the nurse into writing a script for Percocet? Well either I totally threw her off her game or she was just mean and wrote the script – which was for the MRI and not medication at all – for my RIGHT knee instead of the left.…
