Old Habits Die Hard
August 30, 2017
I’m 3 months into Project Money, and I’m starting to feel the pain. Like the pain you feel the day or two after you do a really hard workout or a physical activity that your body wasn’t previously accustomed to.
Stress Free Staycation
August 23, 2017
For the past five years, Ashley and I have taken our annual mother-daughter trip right around this time. It’s historically the one time of the year where we don’t have some sort of soccer, school or work commitment. We haven’t ever gone anywhere extravagant, but it’s quality time together, just the two of us. This year, we (insert “Jenniffer”) chose to forego the annual trek in exchange for a staycation.
Back When I was in School…….

A lot of things have changed since I was in school. I walked a mile to school one way. Literally. I know because I just Google mapped it. I also didn’t have Google when I was in school. Or Gmail, or Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat. Or the ability to search the World Wide Web - as it was known in early days by its inventor, Al Gore – for the answers to all of my questions.

When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait for Christmas morning, excited to see the presents under the tree, ready to rip the wrapping paper off, in anticipation of the treasures I’d find.

I like things done a certain way, and I have my groove. If there was a sign that says, “There’s a place for everything, and everything has a place”, I’d hang it on my living room wall. And it would be in that exact spot until I moved into a new house. And then it would have its place on a new wall. Forever.

Anyone who knows me well would never describe me as a social butterfly, one to be able to strike up a conversation with anyone about anything, or overly verbose (despite my sometimes lengthy blogs!). In fact, I’m a pretty shy person at first and generally need some time to warm up before my chatty muscles start to move.
