Do you remember when it was 9:00 pm and we would just begin to make plans? Dancing, drinks, going to the city, whatever… No planners, email, calendar, oh, and yeah, kids? Lately, it has been hard for us to get together. I can’t imagine why, (my sarcasm here).
Perhaps it is the fact that we each have 1, 2, 3, or 4 kids in tow. Maybe it is the fact that we live far away. It doesn’t matter is you are on a different coast or a half hour away. When you are a mom, an impromtu get together is extremely challenging. Arrangements, babysitters, oopps, baby is sick, need to reschedule. On the way to you, Little miss vomited. So many things get in the way.
Whether we speak every couple of day or every couple of months, please know that I cherish our friendships. It’s tough. If we admit that, that is half the battle. I wish it were easier. Do you think we should have moved into the dorms with our families? Would that have helped? We could have bought a building in the city and made it work? hmm
I think that is the power of a strong friendship – even if you are unable to be there on a daily basis, you know that there are certain people out there that genuinely care for you and would do anything for you if you needed them in an emergency.
College is already 13 years ago. High School – eeeekkkk
Let this post show that I am thinking of you and look forward to the time where my iPhone calendar says I’m free and you’re free and we can have our own “playdate”.
Love & Roses,
