Location Ohio, United States
Introduction Mom of JR (b.8/07), BG (baby girl--7/09), wife of T, reader, writer, former English teacher. I'm observing life "from the cheap seats" and living via my personal philosophy of "thriving in anonymity."

I write for JR, BG and sometimes I write for me. For that, I make no apologies.

This space, my space, my blog . . . is in the constant state of evolution. Please bear with me.

The wicked backspin caught you off guard. How will you play it off without losing your footing?

Act like I meant to do it all along.
