Lately I've been thinking about friendships and my girlfriends that I have had. Since we've moved...a lot...I've had to really put myself out there to make friends. It's kind of like dating actually, although I didn't really date much. It's not easy. You meet another mom at a school function or something and start chatting a bit. I'm Will's mom...yes, we're new to town...I have 3 other kids...blah blah blah. Really what I want to say is...Can I plug your number into my cellphone and call you sometime? Do you want to come over for a glass of wine on Friday? The kids can run around and play....See, that's what I just left behind. This group of girls up here. Friday's after tennis and when the kids got home from school we'd get together and read home decorating magazines, have a glass or two of wine, order pizza for the kids and it was fun. And I miss that.
I know eventually I'll find my place here and find a new group of girls to hang with. But, right now I'm ok just being home with the baby and blogging with my blogger friends.
Miss you girls.
