Speaking of Friends......

Hello, Friend by


Don't you miss the days when you could just walk up to someone and say, "Hey, wanna be my friend?" It was so much easier back then. You can't really pull that off now without looking like some psycho stalker or overly needy person, possibly pathetic.
Finding friends as an adult is one of the hardest things to do, right along with sitting through an entire Paulie Shore movie or pretending you understand half of the technical job terms your husband brings home from work. Just nod and smile. :o)
How I wish I had my group of girlfriends, and we got together at least once a week, a la Sex and the City style. Most of my friends either live out of state or have started families which, I understand, really cuts into a personal life.
But, now that my kids are getting older, hopefully I'll be getting out more and hanging with my current friends and making new ones. You tend to lose your sense of self when you don't spend time with people older than 5. Oh to eat a meal you didn't prepare or have to cut up for someone else while having meaningful adult conversation that doesn't get interrupted with "Seriously Child, eat your dinner." Or even to see a movie that wasn't produced by Disney or is rated more than PG.
So, here's to good friends past, present and future.
