Hi, I'm the new girl. I've been lurking for a while (sorry, I hope that's not wrong) and you all seem like such a cool group. Like, a great balance of caring/empathy and snark/sarcasm.
Things maybe you'd want to know - I'm staring down the barrel at 50 (and it's great, y'all! for real! wouldn't be 25 again for anything), totally adore my husband and young-adult kids, would hate life without The Dog and The Cats, and am a pop-culture whore. I know who the Kardashians are and I hate myself for it. Also am a die-hard liberal but I try real hard to be respectful of other viewpoints. Unless you're a hateful idiot, then I don't try at all.
