I have no idea why I chose Lurkernomore as my screen name because when it is shortened to Lurker, it really sounds kind of creepy, so y'all can just call me Katie. No please, call me Katie, LOL! I have been participating in the official message board off and on now for quite awhile. Without going back and checking I cannot be sure, but it's been a few years since I started reading there. But I have wandered over here following a thread which did cause me some upset and was deleted. I am just looking for a place where the conversation could be a bit lighter, where it is okay if we do stray off topic a bit and I can make some friends. As for myself, I am a fifty year old woman, married for 27 years to a really sweet man and together he and I are trying to adjust to the empty nest syndrome. Both sons moved out on the same day in March and share an apartment. So we sort of went from being a full house to an echoing house...cold turkey! I have Fibro, Sjogren's, Diabetes and recurrent Shingles, but enough about health or lack thereof! I really like it here and hope to read up and get to know you all in a whole new way here. Thanks so much, if you have managed to read this far. (Warning, I am a bit of a rambler, but I'm a pretty nice little rambler.
