Progress for progress sake

Bridal Showers and Baby Showers annoy me.

Not the celebration of the event - it's the separating of the sexes to celebrate 'appropriately' that bugs me. I'm extremely introverted and I just don't understand what's so great about inviting only half your friends to a party. Dudes can be just as excited if not MORE excited about these things than girls. While the lovely ladies who have invited me to these upcoming celebrations are wonderful they are both more friends with my husband than with me. So, while he would have loved to have been by their side and maybe even help plan I've been invited because I have boobs. -_-

*rant over*

I've been needing to updated my wardrobe for a long time. I plan to buy one clothing item every paycheck until Christmas. A skirt, a shirt, a pair of shoes, a hair thingamabob ....etc. It makes me kinda excited. :D

I still haven't made it out to a volunteer site just yet. BUT! I did take the baby step of printing out and completing the volunteer forms. My top two contenders are the library (reading to kids!) and the Nature Refuge (garden recovery!). I'm torn between the two because they're both kinda awesome. I think I'm leaning towards volunteering at the library and getting a membership to the refuge so I can go hiking on the weekends. We'll see what ends up happening.

I'm lonely
Wednesday. 7.13.16 9:56 pm
So; I guess one of the main reasons I found my way back to this little haven is because I'm lonely.

When all my friends started getting married everything was great; but now they're having babies. Don't get me wrong; it's also great, but I find myself drifting farther out to sea everyday.

Married life is great when I get to see my person, but because of their work hours I get to see them twice a week for a few hours at a time. I'm also incredibly introverted which makes new situations with unknown people a lot scarier than you'd think. I end up waking up every morning to a sleepy spouse who went to sleep a few hours before me, going to work (my one social outlet 😑) and then coming home to an empty house.

I believe I've forgotten how to make friends. Worse, I believe I've forgotten how to maintain friendships.

So, in order to try and liven up my life a little I'm going to try something new.

1) Volunteer on weekends
-Fort Worth nature reserve
-animal shelter
-Red Cross
2) Join a club
-book club
-movie club (is that a thing?)
-knitting club
3) Personal Date Nights
-movie dates
-bookstore dates
-city garden dates
-museum dates
4) Take a class
-ice skating

I will obviously not do everything; but maybe I could try one from each category between now and next summer.

It's a thought anyway....
