I Guess I’ll Pack Up My Mind

For spring break 2017, I took my daughter Lana and her boyfriend Michael on vacation. Another long road trip to Florida... I thought about going to California, but that is WAYYY too long to drive, and airfare for three people was a ridiculous price. Florida has the nicest, clearest water within decent driving distance.  Besides, … Continue reading I Guess I’ll Pack Up My Mind


You’ll Get Nothing, And Like It

This just in:  Jenn has a thing for...Chevy Chase? Entry from my dream journal, April 17th, 2017: As the dream begins, I find myself standing alone in a hotel room.  I barely have enough time to wonder what the hell's going on, when in walks a Caddyshack-era Chevy Chase. Me:  Woah. Chevy Chase:  Darling!  I'm … Continue reading You’ll Get Nothing, And Like It

The Truth, The Whole Truth, And Nothing But The Truth

Above:  pretty accurate representation of the average online dating profile pic -- mine included.  God bless.   So yeah...I tried online dating for a few months.  OkCupid, to be exact.  I recently erased my profile, but before I ran (crying and screaming) from the insanity, I had a little fun and updated my info.  While … Continue reading The Truth, The Whole Truth, And Nothing But The Truth


I Don’t Mind You Coming Here Wasting All My Time

Oh mi gato.  LIFE.  IS.  DIFFERENT.  #EmptyNest Many people have asked about Lana.  She is fine...now.  The oral surgery became a fiasco, since she had an adverse reaction to the anesthetic.  Puking without end, amen amen.  Buckets of vomit.  There was an actual VOMIT BUCKET, used often.  It was just pitiful. But of course, she … Continue reading I Don’t Mind You Coming Here Wasting All My Time
