Will You Be My Friend?

This Spring Husband made a case for moving to Texas. His company had offices there and he was looking for a change for our family. After many discussions, a little therapy and lots of sad good-byes we moved away from the Boston area (and my parents, brother, friends, work connections). My company agreed to keep me on part-time as an independent contractor working remotely.

So we're here. We bought a house I did not see until we moved in. How crazy is that? But a necessary evil when houses are sold the same day they are listed in the town we chose (and there is no rental market). Sometimes they sell before they are even listed.

The kids are adjusting - in fact they have been incredible. They are in daycare this summer and all three in school this fall - Ned and Penny in kindergarten and Jo in pre-school.

It helps that we have a pool and a swingset.

Working at home has its pluses and minuses. I need a little more time doing it before I can let you in on them.

In the meantime I'm trying to make friends. I "hit on" a mom at daycare yesterday. She gave me her info and I already sent an email for a playdate. Thank goodness for kids - they make it easier to make friends.

I don't think I'll ever consider myself from Texas or a Texan but I'm giving this a shot.
Do you see Husband in the background?

I always say trying to meet new mom friends is like dating. I am constantly trolling for mom friends!
