The End of Wishing Our Days Away

1 star1 star1 star1 star0.25 star Adult
All we could think about was making it to Friday. Fun had become a figment of our imagination, our time together a commodity. A health crisis woke us to the misery of our lot. What followed was an explosion of questions about our mediocre lives. This is the story of our transformation from merely existing to living. We chose something loftier than work or obligation.

About CJ and Tammy Renzi

Swashbuckling Squirrels, Pirates of Prestidigitation, Sultans of Slappy-face, Quirky Quaffers.

Hi, we are CJ and Tammy, and we are totally nuts about each other! Naturally, we completely revamped our lives so we could spend as many moments together as possible.

Just like most newlyweds, we were excited for the rest of our lives together. We were ready to dominate the world.

By our first anniversary, we found ourselves in a new city with new jobs. Then began the long slide into mediocrity.

We worked too much, ate too much, and exercise meant strolling through Pier 1 on a Saturday afternoon.

It was our wont to count down the days to the next long weekend or the next vacation because those were the only times we truly enjoyed.

After quitting our public school teaching jobs and starting our own businesses, we welcomed fun back into our daily lives along with exercise, healthy eating, and creativity.

We hope you will join us.

A great insight into how one couple have taken hold of their life and transformed an unhealthy and unhappy situation into a joyful and meaningful life. They have attacked book writing with the same blend of humour and seriousness that they bring to their blog. This is a couple serious about having fun, but behind the skylarking is a deeper story about deciding whats important in life and heading full on in that direction. Highly recommended.

I've read the authors blog for a while now. I love the way they write about their very own shot at living the good life. But in this case the good life isn't quite what most people expect.
Enjoyed the read, and shared it with my wife, who enjoyed it too!
