Tomorrow is my birthday — guess my age

My age as of tomorrow is the answer to this puzzle: How many squares of any size are there in the following figure? I’ve added rulers with hash marks on the top and left to make it clear how far apart the lines are.

How many squares of any size?

    I’m not EVEN going to start looking at squares right now…I’m just trying to figure out how far apart we were in high school. You must be turning 46 or 47. Am I right?? 🙂

    Oh, wait! I just checked your bday on FB – You’re turning 46. I was right! 🙂
