How do you make friends?
I feel like I have lot of blog friends but very few friends in real life. I mean I'm talking 2 friends that aren't related to me. When did this happen?
I tried going to MOPS to meet other moms but it wasn't a good fit for me. The moms were super nice and good ladies, but it just wasn't my scene. We tried daycare to meet other kids and their moms and that was a royal disaster. I try to organize things at my house (like for example a 31 party on Sunday that two people showed up to, after inviting over 30.) But nothing seems to pan out.
I understand that not many 27 year olds have been married for 5 years and have 2 kids already. I get that. But just because I have 2 kids and a husband doesn't mean I'm not still fun! I'm still Kate, I'm still me. I still like a glass of wine on the weekends, a good dinner, a romantic comedy, shopping. I still like the same things and the same people. I haven't moved on, but maybe everyone else has?
Dave and his same friends still do all sorts of things together. Golf, snowboard, movies, going out to see bands, all sorts of fun stuff. And where am I? Home with 2 kids.
That sounded a little bitter, and yeah maybe I am a little bitter. Actually, I'm flat out jealous. I'll be honest. I'm so envious of Dave every time he gets to leave to go do something fun. I never get to go. I'm either working, cooking, cleaning or being mom. On rare occasions, I do get to spend the afternoon with my life long best friend, Brittany. But she works 2 jobs (crazy girl!) and has a single, fun life.
I'm whining. I'm sorry. Actually, no I'm not. I'm kind of throwing myself a little pity party and that's okay every once and a while. I'm not sitting here complaining about ALL THE THINGS in my life that are driving me bonkers right now and I'm not being a spoiled brat. I'm just...lonely.
