SAHM Friends - Take 1

Most SAHMs feel isolated…and now I totally get why. As always most things are a delicate balance. I want to be home to take care of my precious Josi, but I need an outlet. Things get crazy, and honestly, I underestimated the level at which I can and do overextend myself. It would be nice to hang with people who get this. Finding SAHM friends who I want to hang out with is another thing to do to my list of "to-dos."And these new SAHM must meet my even higher standard of friendship. And so it begins…

I know what your thinking where does one meet these mythical SAHMs? Well not at story time in the Westchester library…lol. Funny, my mom always told me "he who wants friends, must show himself friendly." And so last Tuesday, I put her words to action. I put on a happy face and went on a search to find other SAHMs in my area. My first (and last) stop the public library, during the 0-2 years old story time. After being told (gruffly) I couldn't get a library card there cause I was out of district, I decided to stay for story time anyway. As we waited I started to look over the "moms" in the group…much to my discontent, there were few to be found. Mostly babysitters and nannies filled the room, the woes of NY living.

Thus my friendliness has yielded…nothing, and quite frankly, come to a screeching halt. I'm still hopeful though cause I signed up for some SAHM meetup groups. Although to be honest, I've been apprehensive about going. It's like online dating, when it's good, it's great, but when it's bad, it's the worst. So I'm hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. At this point though, I'm getting desperate. My first meet up is going to be next Tuesday for a book discussion on discipline, this should be good…
