My self-summary
Fun, loving, caring, unconditional mother of 3 -- my daughter, her husband, and my college-aged son. I also have a new grandson. I'm looking for someone to go to the movies, theater, out to dinner or dance with -- a best friend and fellow traveler on this journey called life. I'm divorced since 2002 & widowed since 2005 -- looking for the one I get to keep.

I am thoughtful, giving, and hopefully fun.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to save the world!
I'm very involved with Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. I am a platelet donor -- 23 times a year.

Stay very busy -- but would love to find a fellow traveler.
I’m really good at
being a friend. My kids would say a good mother (and grandmother) and I know my sister thinks I'm the best sister -- I think she is.
I'm tenacious and follow through with what I start -- panic in the middle sometimes -- but preserve and surprise myself with my successes.
Have had many interesting adventures --
-- decided to go to Israel and did. Volunteered at a board school for people with Developmental Delays - loved it -- and got to see Paris and Rome too!!!
--- Had my Bat Mitzvah on my 50th birthday.
--- Got a 2nd Master's Teacher of the Visual Impaired and learned to cross streets blindfolded.
---- Did my internship in Utah -- and loved river rafting and spending a week on a houseboat with a visually impaired couple.
-- got promoted from ESE (Special Ed) teacher to ESE Specialist (more administrative) -- and have been told I do a good job at it.
---- Saw bison in Florida and tubed a river.
So... what's next? Something I'll be good at!
The first things people usually notice about me
that I'm always smiling!!! that I have great eyes!!! that I'm surrounded by great people in my family and friends. That I'm the 1st to volunteer and I never let people down. That I'm often wearing (especially in pictures) the 2 same shirts.
(And I have a nice backside)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite book -- the one I'm reading instead of sleeping or the one I'm listening to in my car. I like mystery, suspense, fiction that would be considered human interest, lately tried chick lit and surprisingly enjoyed it. I like to read -- like James Patterson, Lisa Gardner, Lisa Jackson, interesting book covers.
Movies -- love to go. Guess chick flicks, suspense, human interest -- and movies of Broadway shows. If preview attracts my attention or it's on Netflix. No blood, no gore -- no senseless violence.
My family is a theater family -- we use to argue about best show -- RENT, Les Mis, Wicked, Hairspray, old stuff -- just like to see live theater -- and rarely get to go.
Depends on where -- classics like Beach Boys, Chicago.
Pizza -- Uno's in Orlando, Mellow Mushroom in Delray, Pizza Loft in Davie -- or what I can get when I'm hungry. Love Thai, Greek, Israeli -- like spicy and try to eat healthy.
Six things I could never do without
Not in any particular order -- my kids, my family, my friends, Relay for Life team, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, books, and pizza. I thought I couldn't live without diet coke but actually gave it up 3 years ago.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything -- what I'm reading, my kids, my students, what I'm reading, meaning of life, -- and where do I fit in the world.
I think a lot !
On a typical Friday night I am
home reading or watching Netflix. Would like to be at:
the movies,
wishing I was at the theater (big theater geek)
With my kids (miss having them nearby but will meet up sometimes)
With my friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just bought a new condo. Never bought a place by myself -- was married last time I purchased a home.
You should message me if
You want someone unique and quite deep; a dedicated friend, want to be a part of my family and friends -- and include me in your life -- blend our interests and lives.
sorry to sound shallow -- but if buying me a cup of coffee is a hardship for you -- please don't contact me. I'm generous and would gladly share the little I have - and want the same generosity shown me. Not looking for a rich man -- but don't need someone to compare how hard it is with. I always find a way to take care of myself and my kids -- just don't want to be reminded that it is a struggle at times.
