Abbey Again

Welcome! Thanks for checking out Refreshingly Fifty! I’m Abbey...a fellow 50-year-old, former workaholic, big sister, devoted friend and your average chick next door. I have zero interest in your NetFlix password or your mother’s maiden name, and I’ll never claim I was a Navy S.E.A.L. …although, I do play a doctor on TV (Just kidding!). The truth is, I’m starting over, and this blog is me sharing the (usually) hilarious stories of how I’m fumbling my way through this shitshow we call life. My hope is that there’s something here for everyone, and that you’ll feel like you’ve found your people.
