I have big news!
The kids and I had two dinner dates last week. And I had a lunch date recently, too. It must have gone well, because I was then invited out to dinner.
You know what this means?
Yes. I am finally making friends. (I think. They could have been pity dates for a work widow whose husband is apparently on a family sabbatical, er, I mean business trip for two weeks. Either way, I’ll take it because we had fun. Hahaha. And just kidding, Kenny. I know you work hard and miss being home.)
I’ve said before how terrible I am at making friends, and how awkward it when you are older (see here). It feels so hard to me – kind of like dating. I wasn’t good at that either, so, natch, it’s taken me a year and a half to have Portland friends to hang out with.
Yes – finally making friends after a year and a half – hahaha. Yay, me. I might have set a record with that length of time.
