I’m in a total funk right now. Things to share that I’m not ready to do yet. But, more than that, I’m feeling lonely and blah this week as I have so many other weeks. This summer has seen my few close friends move away. And I don’[t think that’s something you ever get used to doing. Then we had R&R and then went on a last-minute trip to Indiana. Wonderful! But now I’m here, alone. Next week my base bible study and MOPS start up, so that will be good. But this week I could really just use a friend to come over and chat with me. We’ve gotten some new neighbors but none that I’ve really connected with. The one newish neighbor I have connected with just had a baby, her husband is getting ready to deploy and her in-laws are here. Plus she has three other kids. So her plate is full. And so I’m lonely and blah.
I’ve had a hard time making friends at this base. Good friends. The kind you call up just to shoot the breeze for 10 minutes. The kind you can have deep conversations with. To some degree I just haven’t put myself out there enough. We moved at a weird point for me with being so far pregnant and over the holidays. By the time the holidays were over, I was ready to pop. And by the time I was getting really moving again after giving birth, programs like MOPS & my base bible study were ending their session. Come last fall, again I was in a weird time with Jim deploying. I put myself out there more but never found a close friend. And now we’ll be leaving within the year. So it seems pointless. Yet it isn’t, I know. We could still have another year and that could be an awfully lonely year. And Jim is coming home. And other things. Times like this we could just put down our roots and I could find close, lifetime long friends.
I’m just in a total funk.
As you may recall in part one of this series (HA!) I talked about moving up in the hip/cool world. Well, I’ve (oops!) done it again (wasn’t that the name of a song?? as I fully admit, I’m not FULLY hip/cool, just working my way there! ) I was browsing on myspace (again) and found an old classmate that I’ve tried numerous ways to get in touch with and could never find him. I did last night but, in order to send a message, I had to register. So I registered but planned to NOT create a page. That didn’t last. So I did it. My page is here. I need lots of friends on it now, though, so I don’t like like such a dork. LOL
Happy birthday, Lisanne! I hope you had a wonderful day!
You know those dinners that, hours after you finish, you’re still thinking “Wow, that was a GOOD dinner!” That’s me tonight. Shredded beef enchiladas, a *yummy* Mexican rice, cornbread, home-fried tortilla chips & roasted tomato salsa and, to get in some veggies, a small (very small! LOL) tossed salad topped with Italian dressing mixed with a little taco sauce. I don’t think I’ll need to eat for two more days!
Sadly, I think that is about all I have to report for my day!! LOL
Follow the directions carefully.

C. Copy and paste this meme in your blog, allowing your friends to ask you anything. (The operative word here is ask. heh)
