lol, I guess that's pretty close, then! I used to live on the west side on the Burlington line, but now my dad lives in north Woburn. I miss it--there's a lot to do there. Not as much in southern Connecticut!

I had a very productive weekend. Got lots of fall cleaning done and I even had time to sew. I made a bunch of cloth wipes and hankies. DS picked out his own fabric for the wipes and was so excited to see them all made. And I'm almost done knitting a hat for him--my first knitting project ever. (I'm taking a class.)

Ran into some neighbors today who were making fun of my fire the other day--it's going to take forever to live that down . . .

I am very close to the movie theater ..if I walked Id be there in bout 20 min...depending on how fast or slow



Anyhow ...I went to my uncles funeral today ..of corse it was sad...I have not yet cried for him but I am sure that at some point it will hit me ..
I almost did when relatives were talking bout him during the service. The pastor asked if people wanted to share a story about him and he has 5 sisters so they all spoke about how they terrorized him as a child...
there were some picture of his wedding to my aunt..it was nice to see since she had died years ago when us kids were very young..me and one of the sons were about 6 or 7.

well anyhow ...I just felt more sadness for my 2 cousins ..they have now lost both parents and I just wanted to hug them so tight at the cemetary after the service there..they just huddled next to each other and cried ...how sad ...

well thats all for now ...I promise my next post will not be sad...but back to my cheerful self..

Christine, I'm so sorry about your uncle. It sounds like you have a close, loving family and that is very nice. How sad for everyone.

My half-sister goes to the Wyman School (she's only 8). Maybe sometime I'll run into you down there.

I don't know about more areas, I just noticed they finally reopened Parents As Partners, only with major restrictions about content. Sigh.

Sadly, I do not really have a close friend. Before I moved to England, I thought I had a bunch of friends. When I came back, I no longer had those friends. I was told that they viewed my moving so far away as 'abandonment'. Huh?
Anyhoo, I've been back for 4 1/2 yrs and I still don't have a good friend. There's one woman who I get together with for coffee every now and then but we are not close and, to be honest, if I wasn't so freakin lonely, I wouldn't even go for coffee with her.

As a single mom with no family/friends in the area, it's extremely hard.
I'm so very lonely. My lonliness is killing me.
Waah.

Yeah, i've tried meeting like minded people but this area is so very cold (temperment wise).

Hugs to all of you lonely mama's,
Liz

Lizc::....
I am so sorry that your friends did that to you, what a lame excuse, and a rude one at that.

I noticed that you are from MA. I am as well, there are also a few others that post in here from MA as well. I do not have any friends any longer. we have grown apart. the only friend I have right now is my 39 yr old Aunt and the only reason we have gotten somewhat close is because her and my uncle just had a baby..he is 5 mo now. otherwise I do not think that we would talk and hang out as much.

Have you tried looking into groups around your area. I have found a few mom groups from someone here in MDC. One is a play group I havent been able to attend a play date yet but they do meet and seam real nice...
I do also run my own group its for all of the north east but there seams to be a lot of moms in MA. If you would like me to tell you more about them PM me if you like ....Also the link to my group is in my sig...if you have Yahoo check it out. Its not just for NFL its for all different mothering types so there is mainstream and some like MDC moms..its fun..
Glad you joined us in here..
Christine

Ya I am excited about that reopening..I lingered here for a very long time and when I finally had the time to be here they had closed that forum..
I have noticed that there is also a trading post which I had not seen before, talk amongst ourselves that looks great ..and the spirituality one ..I think there is another...I am very excited ...

Thanks,,It just popped into my head one day. I was thinking on a screen name for one of my messengers and I thought well I do like frogs a lot and I am sad a lot so somehow that just formed.. ...so I used it for in MDC as well...figured no one else would have anything other name remotely like mine so it would be more memorable for the other oerson should I be in nice conversation with someone here and form a friendship...
I approved you as you prolly know al ready lol....

lizc, I'm sorry that happened to you. I have a friend who lives in Jamaica Plain, but she's kind of in a different world -- she's a 40s lesbian artist who has no children. But she's single!

Pookietooth- Ooh, she sounds like she'd be really cool! I need more artist friends. Maybe it would inspire me to start painting again.

Hugs,

welcome, frowning frog!
The reason you have 'new forums' is because you are now past your 'probation' naa it just means you have been here in MDC forums for over 60 days & now have access!

Hi ladies! I've been having computer problems and have been offline since Wednesday. It's lonely when you can't chat with anyone - on a side note, my house has been SO clean this week

Hey, everybody! I haven't posted on this thread in awhile. My mom is dying of Parkinson's Disease, and the end is very near. My parents live about 4 hrs from me, so I don't see them too often. But I did go up there on Sat. I was really glad I did. Now I am expecting the news of her death every time the phone rings. We've been preparing for this for a long time, but I still can't believe that any minute now she won't be on this earth ever again. It is so good to have so many people at MDC who have been so compassionate and caring. I really feel less lonely because of you all. I'll keep you posted.

Liz
