Lonely/no friend mamas - Page 81

post #1601 of 1821
Thyra, are you going to Seattle by plane? Has Lincoln been in a plane before? I hope you will both have a nice and easy time traveling. Personally, I hate travel with kids. I hate travel period, actually.

BaBaBa, great that DH is coming home! Lockdown sounds wonderful. Biden was here last week, and they cleared most of the streets of traffic. It was pretty hard to get around town. Police was everywhere. It was a nice experience for DD though - when she refused to hold hands, they put the sirens on for her! And this cop told her through the speaker-thingy "YOU have to listen to MOM!". DD loves cars, especially police cars, so she thought it was wonderful.

Where are you, expat, ernalala, purity lake? Herewearetogether?

Hi Ladies,

Just found this today and it's kind of perfect timing because I am feeling especially lonely and depressed today. Mind if I join you all?

I really have no friends that I see regularly, except maybe one, but she often drops off the face of the planet for weeks/months at a time. This irritates me. Other than that, the 2 other friends I have live far away. I think I have alienated one of them and the other isn't married and has no kids, so we are just at different points in our lives.

I hate where we live, but we are stuck here. And we are pretty much broke. There are lots of things that I would like to do/be involved in, but it proves to be difficult with the kids and no money. But I do have a passion to reform maternity care in the US.

Anyway, look forward to chatting with you all...

Meghan

I've been playing a video game with my husband and now my sister : who lives in Wisconsin.

yeah, we're travelling by plane, I hope it goes ok - I'm pretty nervous! At least we have non-stop flights. That will make it a bit easier.

Thats hilarious that your daughter got yelled at by the police! I bet she'll be telling that story for a long time!

Hi Meghan

Sorry you are feeling lonely - you've come to the right place for a bit of company though! No money sucks, I know! In what way do you want to reform maternity care? Have you been to places like LLL and such? Anyway, welcome!!

Hi! How do you plan to reform maternity care? I ask b/c I have a friend (more of an acquaintance really) who wants to reform maternity care as well, and she just graduated from my law school.

You make mei tais? I have one and I love it, but the straps are so long and complicated seeming sometimes. I've been using my ergo a ton as a result, but I feel like it doesn't adjust enough when I wear Lincoln on my back. Not to mention that when I wear him on my back it makes my stomach pudge all that more obvious.
post #1609 of 1821
Yes, I just started a while back, when I got laid off. It just makes me a little bit for now, but it is starting to get better, and I enjoy it.

Any thoughts on this one, ladies? My DD has just discovered the most terrible local curse word, and has been repeating it OVER AND OVER for the last hour or so. I don't know what to do about this! She laughs hysterically while saying it, and she knows she's not supposed to. Personally, I never say this word.

Oh man, I hope she stops soon! Maybe if you ignore it and don't react? Is she trying to get a reaction out of you or just saying it to be rebellious? If you don't say it where did she pick it up? (I'm guessing she heard it while you were out, but I don't know anything about kids learning to talk since mines not going to be there for a while.)

I feel the same way.

Lately I've been feeling the same way. I'm divorced and my friends are on the other side of the country. None of them have kids, so when we do talk on the phone now, we seem to have less to talk about than we used to. It's a lot different than when we lived by each other and could go out for live music or to a party like in the past, before I moved and had a baby.

Additionally, my mom died a few years ago and without any sisters or other family, I've been longing for that connection I had with her. I sometimes wish I could just pick up the phone and tell her about my baby or ask for advice.

I just moved to an even new city in my area a couple of weeks ago, so I think this is all hitting me more lately. I'm sorry you other moms feel the same way, but it is nice to know there are other people I can relate to on here. This is my first post on this site.

I hope you all are having a having a good Saturday night. Hi! :-)

DHgot out of the client dinner that was keeping him away until tomorrow BUT apparently Toronto is in a lock down because of the Clinton bush visit so he still wont be home tonight.
My car broke down and I'm without a car too. Sorry!

Mama2Rio, I understand where you are coming from with the work issue. I won't be able to go back to work until after summer break because we don't do the daycare thing either. I am going to really research the WAHM gig as well as great *cold* recipes for when we get there. Wow. We are really going to do this... It's gonna be ok It's gonna be ok It's gonna be ok It's gonna be ok.......
Maybe some kind of WAHM thing together?! i have to see where i'm at in a month. and yes.. every thing will be good, give yourself & kids time to settle in... hows you dd doing?

I'm starting to force DH to take dd for an hour or so at a time. just starting this week... he just got back from the store with her. and time to myself, umm... i guess i'm just starting to get that.

that's the way it goes... warranty expires = everything brakes.

Welcome... this seems to be how most of my friends are... they disappear and reappear like a magic trick.

moving is really hard b/c you really have to work at making a totally new social network.

Hey Meghan, welcome. Where in Mass? My Dh is from right outside of Springfield. We go down every once in a while. I'm in New Hampshire.

Well this weekend was crazy, I haven't been on the computer at all, so I am off to read what happened.

If DD is laughing, she knows she's not supposed to say it and is just testing to see your reaction, so I would not have one. Funny my kids are 15 and still do the same thing.

She's doing ok, there are good days and days I wonder how I keep my sanity. If we end up near you, I would totally dig trying the WAHM thing...

We had originally planned on leaving for AZ on June 13, but my 19 YO stepDD was charged with Minor In Possession. Which is only a misdemeanor, but STILL. Her court date is June 16, and then if she gets probation (not her 1st offense) I don't know what we'll do. : Nothing like having to wait to start the rest of your life, ya know??

Morning mamas. Today is a beautiful day, and I plan on spending much of it outside. I hope all is well with everyone. Anyone doing anything today?

DH managed to talk them into taking 50 % of the labour and got a used part but still $$$. DH's car had major work done in January. So far this year, it seems like he's working just to keep the cars.

We've been sick with a cold but I'm on the mend. Catch up soon...
