Need Girls Night Out
I just realized that while I have been chatting and catching up with old friends via facebook and virtual friends via blogs and flickr, I have neglected seeing my face-to-face friends. I don't like talking on the phone much, and a toddler keeps me from setting up very many lunches. I got almost panicky about it this afternoon when I couldn't remember the last girls night out I'd been to.
So,I invited two friends over for coffee on Thursday. Now, I have to organize a night with friends and without husbands, book clubs or kids. I'm thinking of a good old fashioned girls night here at home. I'm working up the nerve to expand the group a bit and invite some of those women whom I always have liked, but have not socialized with outside of school activities. I know some people do this effortlessly, but I'm much more the one to go along, rather than the one to organize.
Time to step a wee bit out of the comfort zone and make time for myself. Plus, inviting a group over is a sure way to jump start the spring cleaning.
