We did it. After being a part of this mom's group for a month, we finally met a mom. WOO HOO! Not sure if I had an instant connection with her, but her son is a little younger than Eli. If anything it will be good for Eli to have a new little friend. I am going to take him to a little play area at the local rec center on Friday, and she said she was going to be there.
First step done. I can't tell you how much anxiety I have had, just trying to meet people. I would say I am pretty outgoing, but I have to get to know you first. Who knows, this new mom might become a good friend.
Then today, I got a call from a gym that I applied to a couple of weeks ago. I kind of thought my resume might have gotten lost in the shuffle, and was pleasantly surprised. A gym might be a bit of a challenge working in, because of the boys. But, being married is a partnership, and hoping we can figure out something, so I can get some me time.
Speaking of anxiety, I have finally realized with this move, that I might have a little case of it. I tend to be ocd and have always been an anxious person, but can usually get it under control. Lately, not so. So..I think I am going to make a drs. appointment to just discuss my options. I can't go on living with anxiety for the littlest things. Baby steps, right?
Tomorrow is some one's big 5th birthday. Holy moly! He has a busy day planned with school, a little party there. Then off to a choo choo restaurant for a late lunch. Cake and presents, and lots of play time with some new toys. I can't believe he will be 5 at 11:54 am tomorrow! I feel like I should get a present for the labor that little guy put me through...I remember that like it was yesterday!
Time to get moving on the birthday boy's cake. Thomas...here I come!
