simple smileHi, not sure I'm doing this "right" but I am new to the group (ok I confess to lurking for awhile) and wanted to introduce myself.  Don't know how private this is or isn't so I'll just say for now that I'm more like 50ish with four kids, age range 23 to 13 and a husband.  I work for myself as a divorce attorney.   Ummmm....why does this feel like approaching the "in crowd" in junior high?  Oh well, hi everyone....

This made me "giggle"...

Hi...and Welcome!

I am Giselle and it is nice to meet you...!

I know exactly how it feels to drop in a group...still awkward isn't it...even at our age type of thing!

I think you are going to be just fine here...and I am still giggling...

Thank you so much for the honesty because when I joined not even that long ago this is exactly how I felt as well!

Hope you stick around and I look forward to getting to know you!

Oh...I meant to offer that I am usually on very late in here and sometimes it feels very "alone"...

I have a type 1 diabetic kid that requires 24/7 check up's and I do the over night shift and hubby does the day shift...so I am a bit backward at times with my participation...but it all depends!

Ok...that is all and again...Welcome!

G'day and welcome!  I'm Aramanth from Australia - call me Manth, most people do.  I'm 50, married to my best friend for the past 21 1/2 years and Mum to two amazing University Student daughters.  

Glad you got the courage to stand up and introduce yourself!  I'm hoping we'll see much more of you in the forum now!
