About

I’m a very happily re-married woman, pushing 40. I have two wonderful dogs and two awesome teenage step-kids that live with us part-time. After the real estate bubble burst and we found ourselves starting from scratch financially, I began pondering the existential like so many middle-aged people do. I knew I didn’t want to continue to just “work” one unsatisfying job after another.

This blog is about my journey. It’s just one woman’s perspective. As I search for ideas, inspiration, advice and cautionary information, I continue to read about the journeys others have taken. “Eat the meat and throw away the bones”, has always been one of my favorite expressions, along with, “Believe half of what you read and even less of what you hear.” Whatever you take from it, I hope you enjoy reading my blog. I’m having a good time writing it.

    Thank you for writing this blog and for having such a positive, inspiring attitude. I’m a 43 year old woman going back to grad school for the second time – with a 6 year old child in tow. I took the GRE today, and the experience was so miserable I was in despair – until I found your blog. Thank you for sharing. I took the GRE in 1994, 2003, and now 2012. It has changed so completely that I felt like I was in some sort of twilight zone nightmare. I’ve never taken any courses in statistics or probability! I’ve taught at a college level with a Master’s degree (humanities) and I was quite a good math student (20+ years ago) but here I am unable to answer half of the math questions that came up during the exam. I’ve now come to regard age as a disability. Education has clearly changed. Students are being taught different things than they were 20 years ago. I feel constantly disoriented. I wonder if there is a support group of middle-aged students out there somewhere… At any rate, thank you for sharing all of your positive energy. It’s a great help.
