Me – I’m a 46 year old mom of two boys. I’m also a biologist who works full-time in medical research. Writing helps keep me balanced. Some tidbits about me.
The Husband – My wonderful spouse of 16 years who tolerates my foibles and indulges my fantasy about being a writer.
CJ – Our son who is fourteen.
ET – Our son who is twelve.
The Sister – My older sister by 2 years. We are as close as two non-conjoined siblings could possibly be, but our busy lives make it hard to see her as much as I would like. Thank God our kids are on the same sports teams!
BDN – My beautifully dressed neighbour who is frequently featured. Her son is my offspring’s best friend.
BFF – My best friend since grade 10. We went to university in different provinces. When she moved back to Halifax, I left to travel the world. When I came back, she moved to Waterloo, Ontario. Sigh…
How have I never read this part before. (Have I been there for a while and just didn’t know it?!) H has a few bday parties to go to and wants to get everyone a BFF necklace (secretly hoping the recipient will give the other half back to her …. in my mind I’m also sending you half … now if I did – would you wear it?
Yes, you have been here a long time! I love how our kids have so many BFFs. All of ET’s friends are his “best friend”. As for the necklace… in my mind I’m already wearing it. 🙂

I am also a 40 year old but a customer service person who wants to write a novel and blogs so I can vent.
40 year olds of the world UNITE!
Yup, the venting is healthy – especially if you are in customer service. I’m also in the novel writing process… some days I worry the blog is just my latest procrastination technique!
I’ve been writing mine for like 5 years now, so I don’t know if I will ever get it done.

One of my degrees is in biology. I once had a phone interview for a job in the field after being out of school for several years and didn’t have a clue what the guy was talking about so I pretended the dog knocked into me or something, dropped the phone and then hung it up (well clicked it off I guess). Lol, thankfully, he never called back.
Such professionalism… but really good thinking on your feet. You are much better suited to be a cop/lawyer than a biologist.
I think you’ve singlehandedly doubled my readership today. Thanks for taking so much time to read my words!
I can’t believe I made the cast! I’m so honoured. Got a little chuckle out of the “ET” moniker as well…
You’ve earned your spot my friend… and ET has earned his name. Who knew, when we gave him those initials, that his head would turn out that big!
