5 Years

April 29, 2014

26

Today marks the five year anniversary of my very first post on BecomingJennie. It’s hard to believe that five years have passed. It seems it’s just as difficult to know where to end as it was to know how to begin. I suppose, like anything, I simply should start at the beginning.   April 6th, […]

Missing and Action:

November 27, 2012

80

Yes. I know. It has been quite some time since the last post. I have not fallen off the face of the earth, which I’ve heard is a physical impossibility, unless of course, I am circling in earth’s orbit, which means, of course, that I have — in fact — catapulted myself off of the […]

I’ve been on this kind of insane emotional roller coaster for the past few weeks and I’ve had a difficult time pinning […]

Statistics of Self-Caring

38

I had myself a little mental breakdown last week, over pounds and milk and cows and the probability a Jersey cow will produce more than an Ayrshire cow. The breakdown wasn’t just for me though, because Mr. Man also had the pleasure of partaking in this completely statistically predictable meltdown. How often I forget that […]
