Friendless Friend

This weekend I was invited to my friend's baby shower. Out of my three closest friends two of them are pregnant with their first child. My third friend has a two year old boy.
It is exciting and strange to see your best friends pregnant, I assume they thought the same when I was pregnant, the first friend to be pregnant. It is a funny thing to see the girls you have known since high school, whom you partied with, cried over boyfriends and who know you as well as your husband does. We have been through a lot with each other, but we stayed close, best friends.

I don't want to replace my friends from home with new ones here, but I want to add to them. I know who I can call late at night when my darkest fears surface, who will support me no questions asked and where to go if I want an honest opinion of my outfit.
Now I want friends who enjoy my company, would like to hang out with and without our kids. I want someone to shop with, get a manicure or go get coffee. A surface friend.
If they become someone to call crying that would be a bonus.

I am lucky, I already have that.

  2. When I was 32 (back in 98)in I packed up my (then) 8 yr old daughter and 10 yr old son and moved to California to be with someone I met (on the internet). He introduced me to all his friends, but they were also his exwife's friends. She and I got along, butI never could decide if I just couldn't get close to those people just because of that or if it was because I was SO close to all my friends back home in Texas. Lucky for me, when he asked me to marry him I told him that if he wanted that, he'd have to move to Texas with me.
    The strange thing is that once I got back home I really missed the friends I'd made there. But I was SOOOOOOOO glad to be back with the ones here!
