Good For The Soul

I’ve been stuck in a rut lately . You know how it is – every day you repeat the same task, the same function, the same drudgery . You are merely existing and not really living. That’s just life and I see no help for it. At least not on a daily basis. But sometimes…

New York City Or Bust

I can’t stay and chat because it’s 9:26 and I need to go to bed. “Why in the world must you go to bed so early on a Friday night, Jenster?” I’ll tell you why. Because tomorrow morning I’m waking up early, grabbing my iPod with a new Favorites playlist and Precious (my camera for you…

The Latest

Saturday has now been cancelled as well. Todd and I are going to make the best of today. Lunch out, a movie and then the Phillies/Dodgers game this afternoon. We’re also considering sleeping in our new sleeping bags tonight! On top of the bed, of course. The Poconos – just north of us – have…

A Mix of Emotions

I was so proud of myself this afternoon. After leaving work early I ran by Target to buy a few last minute items including exercise pants in an attempt to keep my legs halfway warm this weekend. I packed up my duffel bag with all my goodies – even my sleeping bag, an air mattress,…
