I find myself feeling lonely. The friends I know in town here, seem to be almost avoiding me. Oh, they speak when we see each other, but that's about it. The married couples are the worst - it's like they think divorce is contagious. I don't want to be always including myself in my daughter's family plans but if I wait for an invite, it seldom comes. So... I invite myself along once in awhile, not every time though. I do have some single gals here in town, but I feel awkward about "worming my way" into their activities.
I guess it will just take time to get back into the social scene - I could spend more time in the bars, but that gets to be so expensive and I'm not really into alcohol consumption that much. Maybe I just need to start volunteering to help out for charity functions that the one bar hosts and see what happens.
Who would have thought that paper, ink & rubber could create a priceless keepsake or give me treasured friends.
