You know, I never really learned how to make friends. There were no little kids in my neighborhood growing up, really. I went to school with the same group of kids from Grade K on. So, making friends is something really foreign to me, and I just don't know how to do it. It's like I am missing that part of my brain.
So, I'm making a big effort to join a local mom's group that seems very well-organized (a lot of these moms groups have 2 mall walks scheduled and then fizzle out), and an area toy lending center that is staffed by volunteer members. Maybe I can join some committees and really get to know people. Maybe I'll start going to church again and get involved there.
I need to get out and get social... and, once I myself learn, teach my kids how not to be social misfits like I am!
