I am making the effort to be more social. The ball got rolling with me calling folks this past weekend. The result now has me and Pooka with plans tomorrow and Saturday evenings.
Friday, Pooka and I got invited to dinner with 2 other single parents who have children that go to Pooka's school and daycare. This should be interesting since I don't know very much about either of them. Part of me wants to cancel and just stay home, but stepping out of the comfort zone is the only way to make progress.
Saturday we are meeting with Lsbnmom, her friends, and all the kids at a restaurant for dinner. I've met everyone already so this will just be to get a grown up drink and share a laugh. I really need to get on the ball an organize the next ladies hang out night. So much has happened since the end of 07 so we haven't been getting together monthly like we planned.
Tuesday there is a luncheon at one of the local country clubs. It's the hospitals way of thanking the volunteers for their help. I've made the choice to try to do more than look around, eat my food, look around some more and come back to work and blog about it! LOL! I still don't know what I am going to wear and I really don't want to buy anything. If I starve from now till Tuesday I might fit into the red outfit I have...maybe. *sigh* Where are my bananas? *side note* Does anyone besides me think about that Holla Back song when they write or type out the word bananas?
I've initiated an invite to LadyKat, someone I haven't hung out with in a while to get the kids together at the park, let the kids play themselves out, then go to the buffet pizza joint near by. Something entertaining yet cheap. I can't really afford to be going out like that right now. Trying to save my duckettes for my birthday in July! YAY!
So yeah, I am making the effort cuz nobody can do it for me.
