It should be a good time, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone and having a proper chat with full attention, instead of being distracted watching the kiddies play around. It's so funny how difficult it is to make friends outside of a forced situation (i.e. school or work). There's the whole dance back and forth where you are testing the waters on getting together, what you'll do, how you'll meet up.
I really enjoy living in Brooklin now - have gotten used to having to get into my car to get absolutely anywhere now (oh, I do miss the walking and the subway though...). But I'm not going to lie, it's far away. My girl friends in the city I now see only on special occasions. My other girl friends live east end, yes, but not THAT east end. It's still a bit of trek to see them. I have my BFF, L, living in the Brook, but we don't see each other near as much as either of us thought we would. I guess with me in baby-la-la-land for the past year, we have just been living different lives.
Needless to say, without sounding like a total loser (maybe not?), I'm a little lonely for girlie interaction. I miss being able to call someone up and just say, let's go to the movies. Let's go shopping. Let's go get a coffee (or drink!).
I know life has changed a la child. But I think you should still be able to do those things every one in a while!
PS - Sorry to place a Thursday morning whinge on you. Sometimes I wonder if I am a whiner and shouldn't miss those aspects of my "old life" so much. Do other moms? Because I don't usually hear anyone saying so. Maybe they do, they just don't admit it?
