It’s A Real Thing Now

September 1, 2015

Today I published my first post for Grace & Such. For the past eight months I’ve been dreaming and planning and thinking and writing and designing and, and, and…  And then this morning, September 1st, the first scheduled post went live. And I’m excited. We’ve had over 250 visitors to the site so far today, which means it’s a…

The Summer of my Content

August 28, 2015

It’s been close to three months since I quit working and I feel really good about the successes I’ve achieved this summer. If these accomplishments are any indication of what the rest of my years will be like, then I can look forward to a very fulfilled and satisfied life. I watched the first four…

Myrtle Beach Adventures

July 11, 2015

I made it to Myrtle Beach and back in one piece. It was a quick trip, but I loved every minute of it. I even enjoyed the drive there and back. Mostly, anyway. There is, no doubt, much more to Myrtle Beach than I saw, but what I did see was very commercialized. It was…

A Change of Scenery

July 4, 2015

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.…

Regressing in Retirement

June 14, 2015

I have my first week of retirement under my belt. I would consider it a bit of a fail. I didn’t do 15 minutes of writing every day, nor did I do 15 minutes of decluttering or organizing a day. Do you know what I did do for 15 minutes a day? Nothing. Actually that’s…

My First 15 Minutes

June 8, 2015

Today was my first Monday of retirement. It was pretty nice. I got up when I wanted to get up, which was about the same time I would have gotten up had I been going to work. But the difference was I didn’t HAVE to get up. I liked that. I watched some Good Morning…

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…
