Both Rich and Mom want me to get out and meet people. This would prove to be rather difficult, as I can't stand people on a general basis. Especially the moms I've met down here. Have I mentioned before that I joined a Mommy group / play group last summer and got kicked out? I apparently didn't participate enough. Leaving aside the fact that all of their "events" were always held during Livvie's nap times, I also didn't email enough. What was I supposed to say? I tried to keep up with the kids' birthdays, but there were too many of them and it just got old.
Also, in order to get into that group I had to be recommended by another member. Can you believe that? The other problem with most of the groups here is that they require dues to be paid. For what? I can't imagine why you need to have money saved for snacks etc when everyone should be able to provide their own. It's just ridiculous.
So I'm just not sure what to do. I started my own local message board for socially misfit moms and posted the link on Craigslist, and got 2 new members within 2 days. However, neither one of them is posting. One of them didn't even introduce herself, so I have no idea who she is or what she's looking for. The other one did introduce herself, but she lives so far away from me that I doubt we'd ever end up getting together. It sucks.
So I guess the point of all of this is that I will continue to be bored and lonely, waiting each day for my internet friends to get online so I can have adult conversation, and hoping that someday I'll meet a like-minded person with a kid near Livvie's age who might want to go to the playground together. Or something.
