A glimpse into my crazy life!!!

Monday, December 30, 2013


Since it has been so long since I have posted, I felt that I should re-introduce the blog!

This blog is a plethora of things pertaining to yummy food, my crazy cats and my interesting/boring at times/crazy life.

My name is Majenica. Yes, that is a strange name :) Some call me Jeni, others call me Majenica. I even have a cousin who used to call me JeniMaSue! I am an aspiring blogger, a mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend. I work for Sallie Mae, and love my job. I absolutely love my co-workers and we get along great! 

I have been married to the love of my life, Russell,  for 17 years and I couldn't ask for a better husband! He cooks, he cleans, and he even homeschools Austin. How awesome is he?!?! 

I have two sons. Both boys are my world and I wouldn't trade them for anything!

Dustin is 13 years old and in the 7th grade. He loves sports, Xbox 360, riding his bike and being with his friends. Oh, and his  He is nearly as tall as his dad and skinny as a rail.  He is the world's pickiest eater and just recently tried (and liked!!) bacon for the first time. He would live off of Spaghettios and Ramen if we let

Austin is 11 years old and loves Batman, Power Rangers and Kitties. Austin has autism and is homeschooled. He loves being at home rather than a brick and mortar school. He thrives with one on one education. Austin is nearly as tall as Dustin! He isn't as skinny, though, because he loves his food. His favorite food is tuna right out of the can! eeewww!!!!!

We have 2 cats. Midnight is our black cat, who is 11 years old. We got him from the Humane Society when he was 1. He still acts like a little kitten though! Very playful :) Stella is our siamese cat, who is 4 years old. We got her from the animal shelter a few months ago. You would never know that she didn't grow up with us, though! They are both spoiled rotten and know just how to get their way!

Well, now you have met the family :) My goal for 2014 is to blog at least three times a week. I didn't do so well with that in 2013, so now I have to work harder at my goal! I hope you will like the blog and will tell your friends about it. This is going to be a great year with exciting things to come on here!

Changes are afoot!!!

What a week it was last week!!! Changes are afoot!! I have made the very hard decision to take some time off from school. I have been in school so long, and I am exhausted! I need some time to regroup and focus my attention on my children and my house.

We have decided to get back into fostering again. Exciting :)  I am so glad that we got the caseworker we were wanting! Having a great caseworker is all of the difference!! All paperwork is finished and we are having our first training on Feb. 23rd. I can't wait :):):)

Dustin has been home from school all week sick with strep throat. Poor boy. He doesn't get sick. ever. So this was tough for him. He is still coughing quite a bit, even after the meds, so we might have to make another trip to the doc...blah.

Well, on the bright side, with all of the time on my hands from not having to complete so much school work, I can update my blog more regularly!! WOOT! lol!!

Hello Again!!!

It has been some time since I have posted! I am so very sorry about that, but life got in the way :P

I have been cooking up a storm and have been busy busy! Dustin is playing Basketball, so I have been busy taking him to practice and going to watch his games!

And I have been busy with Austin's behavior clinician coming twice a week. Look at what they worked on last week :) They worked on problem solving and in the process made a flag from Austin's Legos :)  (please pay no mind to the dirty face...I swear his nickname should be Pig Pen from Charlie

Then there's the crazy cat!! He nearly lost his life this past week! Because I nearly killed We have had Midnight for almost 9 years, and he was a little over a year old when we got him, so he is between 10 and 11 years old. Last week, out of the blue, he started urinating on everything!! I was soo mad!!! We ended up taking him to the vet, and it turned out he has a urinary tract infection. So we had to change his diet quite a bit, because he also had a high ph level that indicates crystals in the urine. Crazy cat!

As you can see, he is a bit rotten and spoiled :P

I have been doing my homework like mad, trying to finish classes so that I can be student teaching next fall!! I am so excited!!!!! It's like there is finally light at the end of the homework tunnel! 

Ok, so that was a quick update on life and the crazy cat, so I am off to get my post in order for the yummy food part!!
