1. I love you so, so much. This whole pastors-wives-have-to-move-with-their-husbands thing really stinks. And BTW, my favorite time of day is at night when I’m on my butt watching TV drinking wine and chatting with you on my iPad. 🙂

      It would never have occurred to me nor would I have ever thought “this whole pastors-wives-have-to-move-with-their-husbands thing really stinks”. My husband just happens to be a pastor is how I look at it.

      Good post, Pam. Maybe we can meet up in Fargo sometime!

  2. I’ve worked all of Kidzilla’s life so far so I didn’t experience what you have, but I understand. I realized just a few short months ago that I had somehow allowed my life to swallow me up and was doing everything and taking care of everyone except myself. Like you said, my Husband is awesome, but he’s no girlfriend. We need those girlfriends for a reason. And so, mostly with his encouragement, my BFF and I have made a point of scheduling just girls nights for us – no husbands, no kids, just us. It’s been a wonderful thing for both of us in many ways. Kudos to you for taking the reins and making things happen – too easy to let someone else do, I know, but it makes a difference.

  3. Karrie! We will have to meet up! I’ll be there for marathon weekend, but that will be way too busy! Maybe for my next support group meeting in July! And Esther just meant it stinks follwoing your husband when you have to leave your besties behind! (You Know You miss us!)

  4. Yes Lisa, I was listening to a speaker recently who really pushed keeping a good relationship with our girlfriends. As we age we will lean on them more and more.

  5. […] with my friends . . . sometimes what I really want to do is sit in my recliner and read. But, then, I suffer from loneliness. You will be happy to know that since writing that post, I was able to spend some precious time […]

  6. It’s so funny that you say you lost your social life when you stopped being a working mum. In my case it was the other way around. When I was working, I had great friends and had so much fun, outings and dates with my pals.

    I decided to be a stay at home mum last year and all these changed. I no longer go out or talk to my friends. At least not the same way I used to. My life revolves around my daughter, laptop and the house. It’s just different.

    I am learning to reach out to other stay at home mothers because it can get really lonely at times.
