Three Weeks and Counting

August 26, 2014

It was three weeks ago today that I had my hair colored. And look: You can see a nice little swatch of gray starting. And see how it’s all concentrated in one area? It’s exactly like that on the other side. Do you know what I’m afraid of? I’m afraid of looking like this when…

A Little Gray With A Bunch of Good Junk

August 16, 2014

GOING GRAY There’s not much going on with my hair right now. It’s only been a week and a half since my coloring job. There is the faintest amount of color sliding at my temples, but it didn’t show up in the pictures I tried to take so they’re not even worth posting. And speaking…

The Initial Response

August 8, 2014

I’m a little shocked at the reaction I got to my last post. You know, the one where I said I was going to let myself go gray. All of the feedback was positive and for some reason I thought there would be a little more negativity. No doubt that was my apprehension talking. Just…

My Newest Adventure

August 6, 2014

I’ve been coloring my hair for a while now. When it was growing back after chemo I was a little surprised at the amount of gray. Forty was much too young to be that gray as far as I was concerned. So I colored those babies as soon as I could and I haven’t stopped since.…

Daring To Do What I Love

July 15, 2014

I’m guessing this isn’t a surprise to anyone, but I like to write. I would guess that most people who blog like to write. Write? I mean, right? Slowly, but surely, I’m realizing some of my life long dreams. Why just now? Partly because I was a little afraid of being told I wasn’t a…

Famous Fridays – Jimmy Fallon Edition

June 14, 2014

Let’s get the obvious out of the way. It is NOT Friday. It is, in fact, Saturday. But Famous Fridays sounds better than Famous Saturdays and I had intended to post this yesterday. Capiche? Thursday was our big day in New York to see The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. But a big day like…

Places to Go, People to See

June 11, 2014

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…

Reminiscing Re: Rhubarb

June 7, 2014

I went ahead and made the rhubarb-strawberry crisp the other night.   It was delish. Just ask Taylor. Or Katie. Or Todd. Um, no. Don’t ask Todd.  Poor guy didn’t get any. Guess I’ll just have to make another one. All this talk of rhubarb reminded me of a funny story from long ago. Shortly…

Grocery Bliss

June 5, 2014

I did a little grocery shopping today. NO! Don’t go! I’m not going to whine about it like I usually do. Promise! Okay. Now where was I? Oh, yes. I did a little grocery shopping today. And by that I mean I ordered my groceries online last night and today I pulled up to the…

Aaaaaaannnnnnnd It’s Done!

May 28, 2014

Well mostly done, anyway. It’s pretty much complete. The powder room is just a few touch ups away from being finished! I promised before and after pictures, but I can’t find the before photos. Just suffice it to say it was a boring, construction-grade bathroom. Linoleum on the floor, a beige toilet and a standard…
