I really wish I had some friends around here. Sure it would be great for me, but I feel this way mostly for Ryan's sake. I've always hoped that I'd make some friends who also had children so that maybe Ryan could have someone to play with once in a while. Unfortunately I have yet to meet any friends. I've gone out of my way to try to meet people a couple of times, but nothing worked out. Even my neighborhood has not provided any friends or playmates. I've never met the spouses of Pat's coworkers. However, I do know that most of them either don't have kids or work full time. Back at Ft. Sill everyone had kids and most people stayed home with them. Here I have encountered the opposite.
It seems I'm always in the right place at the wrong time, I guess. I just wish things were a bit different here in regards to friends.
