What do all you other SAHMs do for socialization?
Have you checked out the 'finding your tribe' section here? Theres bound to be people from your area! I attend monthly coffee nights with mothering women in my area!

Thanks for the reassurance! It's so frustrating b/c after being in this area for 3 years, I finally felt like I found my 'nitch,' but I now feel like I have to start from scratch since becoming a SAHM. Maybe I can become more proactive and get a regular gathering of MDC moms in my area (right now, they don't meet). Once a month LLL mtgs aren't filling my social calendar very well. Thanks for the other suggestions.
I am planning to go back to work and I just don't know that many moms who stay home. I am friendly with the moms from my LLL group but it only meets once a month and I haven't gotten up the courage to call anyone for outside playdates! Mostly I've been hanging out with my one friend who just had her second set of twins, but they have some health problems so we don't go out a whole lot.
I feel like if I were to stay at home fulltime I'd have to be rich, because I feel like all there is to do around here is shop! I can't walk anywhere - we live in a very residential area and the grocery store is a highway away. So in addition to lacking SAHM friends we are in the car a lot, which both my kids hate... :
