I Miss My Friends

Well, life goes on in these parts. Things are actually going pretty well, although today I looked at a friend's pictures at a farm with all of these kids I used to see at least once a week. I met these moms and kids (those that had been born at that point) when DS was only 10 months old. The kids are all growing up so fast. I don't think I've seen any of them since December because DD, being 5 months old, is not into regular long car trips (2 hours each way), especially without Mommy to keep her company in the back.

Anyway, going through the pictures made me sad. I feel like I'm missing so much! God, I'm turning into my mother! ;) These women are my tribe, and I just haven't made those kinds of connections since I moved here 3 years ago. Sure, I have made friends, and with some really great people, but just not the same kind of bond that we shared.

I also miss being able to connect with their day-to-day lives. I want to be there to share, laugh, hug, and even give a kick now and then to those who seem to need it, but when you're missing the everyday, you feel like you don't even know what you're talking about when you try to help.

So, anyway, if you're reading, here's a note to my gals:

JH: We'll always have Heroes and Harry Potter, so let's keep talking.

MR: You're stronger than you know. Look at the inside and how much you really shine for yourself and those beautiful kids of yours.

RR: Where did those girls get those tall figures? What happened to their chubby little baby faces? I miss our open, honest chats.

SM: Ditto for your girl! Feel like I haven't seen you in forever!

BB: I can only cross my fingers and hope everything works out well for you. I love you but don't ever know what to say without putting my foot in my mouth.

HH: We miss you, too. Keep sending us emails, even about Bucky!

EH: I can't believe it's almost time for number 4! Take care of yourself!
