Due to yesterday’s explosion and an overall crappy winter cancelling local blood drives, our local blood bank –Community Blood Council of NJ – is critically low on blood. As of yesterday evening, they were down to just 6 pints ofuniversal O-negative blood, which is the go-to blood in emergency situations like this.

If you’re able to share this with friends & family and donate blood this week – the center is located in Ewing, NJ on Parkside Avenue.

Also a transplant to New Jersey and Mercer County, Merritt McGlynn is walking a tightrope between career woman and devoted mother: hanging on for dear life with her dishpan hands. Merritt is a mom to two of the most adorable children in Jersey: a darling and spunky 4-year-old and a certifiably insane but heart-melting almost-3-year-old. Married to the always-working "Coach", Merritt tries to maintain some appearance of a work-life balance, and often finds that the scales are usually tipped in one direction or the other - but she’s still trying! In her spare time, if she ever gets any, Merritt would like to read books, travel with her husband, drink margaritas on the deck, and one day, if she’s really lucky, enjoy a phone conversation without interruptions. For now, she’ll settle for 20 minutes of an Audrey Hepburn movie and a diet coke.
