Weary Weekend


Personal

New to us car? CHECK. Brought it home from Emerling on Friday afternoon. Wheee! When cleaning out the truck this week, we found one of these. I cried. Sentimental Jenny. Bye-bye ol’ truck. You brought me back and forth to HWMMS when we were first dating, drove us to and from Weber Wedding Weekend and […]

Three Accomplishments in 2017


Personal

Three Accomplishments in 2017? Welp. Maybe it’s because this is my current mood: Current Status: Not Feeling It. Also, no idea what it…is. — Jennifer L.S. Weber (@AllThingsJen) December 29, 2017 Maybe it’s because 2017 has been one GIANT DUMPSTER TIRE FIRE. But I couldn’t easily come up with three accomplishments in 2017. I thought […]

All Things True Confession: Gossip Website Addictions


Personal, Randomments

All Things True Confession: Gossip Website Addictions Answer: What is Us Weekly. Daily Mail. Blind Gossip & Reality Steve. Question: What are All Things Jennifer’s favorite website addictions?

Dragonfly Tattoo


Friends, Personal

The Middle Aged Lady with the Dragonfly Tattoo. Despite being the person who personally disliked tattoos all my life, (see #63) I just got my 1st tattoo in honor of my upcoming 44th birthday. 44. The age my dad was when he passed away. A reminder to make every day count. This is midlife. Three […]

A Rare Sighting


Personal

A Rare Sighting of a Jenny in her Winter Basement Entertainment Room Habitat. It was chilly. The blanket felt warm on my head. HWMMS thought it was funny.

Diabetes


Health & Wellness, Personal

So. I have diabetes. Type 2. I was officially diagnosed in the beginning of the year and I’ve pretty much been sitting around for the last 11 months embarrassed and ashamed. THIS IS ALL MY DOING. I COULD HAVE STOPPED IT. I’ve been told for years, at least the last five years that I’m pre-diabetic. […]

NaNope

Sunday. Thank GOD for Sunday. It’s been a long week. Last Sunday, a friend saw a house for the first time at an Open House. Monday we had a second showing. Tuesday we offered a contract. Wednesday we had an accepted contract. (Finally!) Thursday was Thanksgiving. Friday was Home Inspection. No rest for the wicked! […]

Passion?


Music, Personal, Writing

(Gut punch.) I was messaging with a friend from college this evening and she mentioned the passion her son has for soccer—and how it rivaled her passion for physics. Passion. Hmmm. It got me thinking a little while later on the drive home. Passion. Geez? What on earth would I consider my passion? Blogging? Writing? […]

Work From Home


Home Sweet Home, Personal, Pets, Real Estate, Writing

Work From Home Tuesday DOES NOT SUCK. It’s a work from home in front of the fireplace (which is ON because it is finally COLD outside in WNY!) with a giant mug of coffee  and a Harley dog that wants to settle down but is still looking up at me asking for love kind of […]

Dragonflies Everywhere


Mind and Spirit, Personal, Synchronicities

Dragonflies have surrounded me everywhere this past week GIANT gorgeous ones & teeny tiny ones. All over Weber Wonderland. Not surprising. A family friend passed away last week. September 5th. Bah. And this morning my friend’s grandmother passed away. Sometimes I think I’m crazy. Am I just reallyreallyreally hoping and wishing that seeing dragonflies means […]

One Productive Hour


HWMMS, Personal

Man, I just had One Productive Hour. AND I WILL DENY THIS TO MY DYING DAY so if anyone dares mentions what you read in this post below to me when grumpy one morning, my notyetcaffeinated, still half-asleep self reserves the right to not-mean-to bite your head off. (Yes I realize this statement applies to […]

No MLM Sales Here


Personal, Shopping

No MLM Sales Here. (MLM = Multi-Level Marketing) I originally wrote this in 2015. Interesting. Replace Jamberry with LuLuRoe, same story. PLEASE no one take offense at this next post, but if you invite me to a group for something salesy—I’m going to politely decline. I know a lot of people. (I mean a lot…of […]

SELF CARE


Health & Wellness, Mind and Spirit, Personal, Synchronicities

I woke up this morning with myself on my mind. SELF CARE IS NOT OPTIONAL. IT’S NOT SELFISH. IT’S NECESSARY. NO APOLOGIES NEEDED. This is a lesson I’ve been coming around to learning the last few years. It’s ESSENTIAL. Why do I find myself feeling guilty or apologetic when needing to take care of ME […]

Weight, Weight Don’t Tell Me!


Health & Wellness, Personal

I’m an idiot and I totally deserve how I’m physically feeling right now. It’s almost like I unconsciously willed myself to it. Funny how the world works, eh? Weight, Weight Don’t Tell Me! Over the last year one of my very best friends has been on an inspiring weight loss journey. As in close to […]

LEAP! (5,4,3,2,1…)


Books, Personal, Synchronicities

WHY IS IT THAT??? I can get up at 5:45am and take the dogs outside. WIDE AWAKE. All is ok. I can find myself scrolling through social media at 6am…and then by 6:10am I think “I should just get out of bed and start my day. ” BUT I DON’T. Now it’s 6:30am. And 6:45am […]

Library, not Nursery


Personal, Weber Wonderland

Library, not Nursery. A million years ago, ok, 27—10—and maybe even off and on the last few years if you would have told me I would end up in a giant house in the country with two crazy dogs, four kitty cats and one amazing husband without any kiddos I would have laughed. We bought […]

Sunburn Sunday!


Garden, Homesteading, Personal, Weber Wonderland

Because Saturday sucked, or didn’t go quite as I hoped. I had an early bedtime and woke up at a normal hour this morning. Baby was it cool outside! We had the windows open all night and HWMMS was ready to shut them and turn on the heat—-but instead, we ventured out into the sun […]

Saturday


Personal, Weber Wonderland

Saturday started off with coffee in bed. HWMMS loves me. It’s been a while since enjoying coffee in bed! Bah, if I knew it was going to be a chilly cloudy day I would have stayed there longer! HWMMS had to get up early(ish) to get to the dealer so the Mistress could be inspected. […]

Strange Things Are Afoot


Personal

Strange Things Are Afoot. I’m going to pretend that there’s just some odd disturbance in the force that is causing whatever the heck this funk I found myself in today. This week. I need to get to a center. I had a good work week this week, but it was not my own personal work. […]

Frump


Personal

Frump. Ugh, the day this photo was taken, I was actually in a decent mood. I was taking the puppies for a walk, bare feet in the muddy earth—-things are good. And then I saw the photo. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. I knew I needed to color my hair, I could see it in […]
