Friday Night... boooring

I have pretty much come to terms with my lack of a social life.

I'm pretty sure it won't improve until I have a job and meet people.

Contrary to popular belief, having kids doesn't help you meet people, not even all the other people who had kids and wanted to meet people. Mom to Mom competition in the preschool years is pretty intense, so it's usually just stressful.

Learning from how frustrating it was to join a mom's club, I won't join one here.
I suppose really I'm doomed socially until my boys enter school, and I can start volunteering. See, I have Drama Girl in school, but I can't really volunteer because I have no one around to watch the boys while I do.

Or until I get a job.

Whichever comes first.

But tonight, alas, my husband is staying late at work, because, yes, Fantasy Football time.
Drama Girl is at her first sleepover at a friend's. Drama Girl isn't involved in a lot of activities, so friendship making time is limited. She has to complete two months of swim lessons successfully before I let her do gymnastics.

Why? Because Drama Girl is almost 11 and can't swim. Won't let me teach her. Or daddy. Nope. So back to lessons.

So tonight, I am stuck with Turbo and Bear, both who told me to 'go away.' Shoot, even they don't want to play with me.

SOMEONE come and play with me.


um after Dr. Who....

So Friday is Fantasy Football night? That's a new modern pattern.

But there was no Doctor Who! The final insult.

You're free to come play with me in Korea.

I KNOW! I was stuck watching old stargate episodes and TLC's What Not To Wear (further reminding me that it didn't matter what I wore since I have no life...).

Last night was 'picking the players' for your own teams. I don't know, is there a British counterpart?

Ed, are you in Korea already?

No, I'm not in Korea yet. But could fly to Korea and have a great Friday with me. Then you can fly back to Colorado and enjoy a boring Friday at home. Two Fridays for the price of one.
