Oh man, I haven't been posting because I was M-A-D at blogger for several days. I deleted my old blog roll and some other sidebar stuff and in the process somehow blew out my template. My font sizes were all over the place, things were misaligned...I don't even know. I had to go back and just reload my template, so I lost all my customization...and to add insult to injury, I had just replaced about half of my sidebar content. So. Irritating.
Anyway, thank you for the lovely anniversary wishes. It has been, and continues to be, an adventure!
But woe is me today. I am sad because the closest thing I have to a "best friend" is now gone. My close friend, my steady, normal, unflappable, supportive friend has up and moved south with her family. They couldn't take the cold, snowy winters anymore, and her husband was bored with his job, so bam. Gone. And I am happy for them because they are excited. But I am sad for me because I find it VERY difficult to make adult friends. I'm out of school, I don't work outside my home, and as I've previously mentioned, even our local community ed playgroup (which is on hiatus for the summer anyway) attracts mostly grandmas who babysit.
I feel so LAME even talking about this, but jeez! How's a gal supposed to make friends? I know many of you would suggest church, but our church is mostly college kids and older families...there are some younger parents but even so, I don't know how active I could be when our church is 45 minutes from home.
What I want to know is, where are the crafty mamas?!? You all live on the east coast (what is UP with Massachusetts? Y'all are a CRAFTY STATE!) or, apparently, west of the Mississippi.
I mean, I'm a pretty friendly person. A little too talkative, maybe, and I run late a lot. But I bake a mean cookie and my kid is sweet and friendly! We'd love to hang out with some people like us!
WHERE ARE YOU, WESTERN NEW YORK CRAFTY MAMAS?!?
