Yeah, I have had this issue a few times. I can't stand drama.
Sara moved here to be with me, so she had to start fresh, and this is basically her first home after college, so she's feeling it bad. We have made a few mom friends, but they're not close friends (yet?) Part of our issue is that we live so far away from a city. We live in a small village 1/2 an hour from a college town, one of the friends we have made lives half an hour from that town, the other way. We are just now trying to make the jump to hanging out more ,an hour drive tho? We need to do more with meeting our neighbors, really.
I am painfully shy and reclusive around neighbors. It took over a year to start barely talking to my neighbors.
