Brief Biography

I am a wife, mother, friend, and reading-obsessed woman at midlife. I have a love of the written word that can best be described as obsessive-compulsive. Residing in the suburbs of New York City, in Northern NJ, I spend most of my time stalking Facebook, reading books,  every online article, blog, RSS Feed and HGTV kitchen and bath renovation post in cyberspace and avoiding housework and exercise like a boss. I’m currently stocking my private library collection with more paper books than I will ever be able to read in my lifetime and hoarding free digital content on my Kindle.

I’m trying hard to learn how to live a simpler life, after years of doing too much and saying yes to everyone and everything. I am happily at home and no longer sitting on my ass behind a desk. I’m attempting to be more frugal, more mindful of all I am grateful for, and a happier person overall (this is tough-I suffer from dysthymia.) I am choosing not to define myself by a job title anymore and to just be.

Make sure to leave a comment if you visit; I love hearing from others out there.

  1. I keep meaning to post an entry for the Mental Health blog, I have a few on my blog esp. re Anxiety etc. I hope I remember to do it now. I give you credit for giving up Facebook. Other than that, I love reading, am over menopause and live in the suburbs. Empty Nester describes us, it’s all a process as everything is. Thankful for each day. Love your blog. Peace and blessings. Laurie

    • Thank you for your comment, Laurie. I’ll never quite be an empty nester, as I have a developmentally disabled adult daughter who functions at about a 10 year old level. But, yes, it does describe most of us. I also enjoy reading your blog posts. 😀
