The Beginning of the Beginning

June 5, 2015

  Today was my very last day at work. I don’t actually know how I feel about it. I do know that I feel better about it than I did a couple of weeks ago. Now that I’ve worked with my replacement for two weeks I feel such a relief. She’s going to do a…

The Beginning of the End

May 16, 2015

There is one week of preschool left and two weeks of camp after that. Do you realize what this means? It means I only have three weeks of work left. Figuring in Memorial Day as a holiday that comes to 14 more work days. FOURTEEN! I am not panicked. (I am NOT panicked. I am…

The Meaning of “Jenster”

April 22, 2015

I just did a Google search for “Jenster” and it was fascinating. Jenster’s Musings came up second, but the Urban Dictionary definition was first and this is what it had to say: Jenster Nickname for the coolest Jenny you have ever met in your entire life! If you have met her, these might be a…

Peanut Butter What??

April 8, 2015

Hey you guys! You’ll never guess what I had for dinner the other night. You’ll never guess where I had dinner the other night, either. Unless you already know I went to Washington to hang out with my Brother-in-Law, Sister-in-Law, her mom, and my niece and nephew. Then you might be able to guess where…

Welcome To My Bachelor Pad

April 3, 2015

I’m not sure when I lost control over my house. Perhaps it was when the hormonal balance within these walls shifted. Considering my own lack of estrogen and the absence of another female in the house on a consistent basis, the testosterone can be almost palpable at times. I know I’m partially to blame. Last…

40 Days of Preparation

February 28, 2015

I haven’t practiced Lent in… maybe ever. It’s just not something that the churches I’ve belonged to as an adult observed. I’m okay with that because it’s not actually biblical. I mean, there’s nothing in the bible that says, “You shall observe the forty days preceding Easter Sunday¬†with fasting and contemplation”. That said, I do…

Oh Snap!

February 8, 2015

Oh Snap! I have a small laundry room and I used to hang my clothes on the door jamb as I took them out of the dryer. That wasn’t a great idea because one, I’m short; and two, the clean clothes were easily knocked down on those rare occasions when I didn’t actually move them…

On The Road To A Great 2015

January 31, 2015

2015 is a big year with some huge milestones for me. In May I will celebrate 10 years as a cancer survivor and in November I’ll be a half a century old. My 40’s have not been at all what I had planned them to be. I’m fairly certain that if I didn’t have a…

A Sweet Someday

January 24, 2015

For the longest time I’ve said I was going to make caramel corn someday, but I never got around to it. I didn’t really know how to do it and never took the time to look it up. A week or so ago a friend of mine posted a recipe on Facebook and last night…

Someday Never Comes

January 23, 2015

When I was young and would ask my mom or dad if we could do this or that, oftentimes the answer was, “Someday”. I finally wised up and (in what I’m sure was my whiniest of voices) countered with, “But ‘someday’ never comes!” As an adult I get it. I’ve put off a lot of…
