37 is…

the normal human body temperature in degrees Celsius. I tend to run cooler than that, unless knocked up.

the number on Casey Stengel’s retired New York Mets jersey. Please let them not suck this season. Go Mets!

apparently the number most people say when they are asked to give a number between 0 and 100. Though I usually say 47. Or 24. Or 7. But I’m not most people.

is the number of candles on my birthday cake today. I generally like the even years, but this time around, I’m happy to be going odd. Last year was a rough one…here’s to new beginnings.

Happy Birthday to me!

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my daughter....it worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...


  1. No, it’s not a bad age, despite the fact I’m only 4 days in and have spent nearly all of it sick…:) It can only go up from here! Thanks for reading!
