I’m in my mid-thirties, happily married to John, and adore my dog Seamus. I’m extremely liberal, a vegetarian, and somewhat opinionated. We live in Maryland, north of Washington DC. I have a job that I love, but that I try not to talk about in detail – there was an incident, once, and I’d like to stay employed. While getting treated for infertility, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. Now I'm very focused on getting fit. I started blogging in part to keep in better touch with my far-flung friends, and had no idea how many new and interesting people I’d meet on the Internet. And now you’re one of them. So… hi!
