Sigh....I miss the city, I miss my friends, and it's only been two weeks.
I am sure the weather is part of it. Moving to a new town in the winter (in Chicago no less) sucks. It has been gray and raining for days. We got out last week with some unseasonably warm weather and I got to see some other parents and talk to them (everyone is so garsh darn nice!). But since then the onlys moms I have seen have been at AW's school, and while they are super nice...they all seem to be best friends and I still feel left out.
I just want to see a friendly face, not that the faces aren't friendly here, I just don't know them. Everyday at home in the city I saw someone I knew. I am not a social butterfly, I am not miss popularity. It just nice to run into people and share a hello, hows the kids, etc....it helps make you feel at home, part of something bigger. Part of a community.
Hubby dragged how I was feeling out of me, then reminded me that we have only been here 2 weeks. He was trying to help I know, reminding me we could move in a year if it doesn't work. Right...the kids are so happy here and the economy is still tanking, we aren't going anywhere. I need to do what I need to do, put on a happy face and try to make some friends.
Today its supposed to rain, again. So I will pull myself up and find something to
do with the kids today that does not involve driving home (no matter how much I want to) or taking them to Target. Maybe we will try the library again....we almost got kicked out the first the time, maybe we can not be so loud and obnoxious this time....
