Jenni's Jargon

the thoughts that run through my head

Catching Up…


Hello friends of the blog. As you noticed, I took a short hiatus over the summer and now I am getting back into the swing of things.  I found myself feeling a little lost by not writing a little each week but forced myself to take some down time and spend some time with my guys!

We have already started back to school this year. We are 2 1/2 weeks into 5th grade and it is going good but it was a rough transition. My son ended up in one classroom (with the teacher he was hoping for) but he three best friends are in the other classroom. That was the hardest part of this transition but he is settling in quite nice at this point.

Summer brought on some fun times at the amusement/water park, playing outside with friends, swimming pool time, late night movies, and slumber parties!! This type of summer really takes me back to my childhood and I am so happy I can provide this type of summer fun for my kiddo!!

Well, enough about the boy. PodcastNot only am I writing this to catch you up on our life but also to let you know I am catching up with the rest of the world. I am not a person who is always on top of the latest trends. However; I have been feeling very trendy lately because I have discovered the joy that is Podcasts. I know, you are thinking, “Where the hell has this chick been?” I think the reason I never tried out podcasts before is because I thought they would be boring because I am not a fan of talk radio or even NPR. However, since my free subscription to Audible ended this summer I decided to give podcasts a chance and I can tell you they have changed my thinking and perspective. I started out looking for some podcasts about Game of Thrones, my hubby and I caught up with the world on GoT in the last year and actually were able to watch the most recent season with everyone else. Once I started looking at podcasts it has become an addiction. I am always looking for more topics to listen about and listening in my car, in my office and while I am cooking and doing dishes. I want to share some of my favorites with you all and if you check them out, please let me know how you like them:

Nerdette – a fun podcast hosted by two nerdy girls who talk about great topics

Nerdette Recaps Game of Thrones with Peter Sagal – The same nerdy girls recap GoT with Peter Sagal. Great conversations and guests add to the fun.

Sooo Many White Guys – This podcast is so funny and is hosted wonderfully by a “Not a white guy” funny woman!

Girlboss Radio – Each week the guests are strong women talking about business, life, money and other great topics.

Politically Re-Active – Two comics talk about this political season, this one only runs through this election (for now)

The Sporkful – Not for Foodies, for eaters!!

2 Dope Queens – The title tells you who the hosts are and they invite some great guests!

Please feel free to tell me about your favorite podcasts, I am always looking for new stuff to listen to and obsesses about!!
