Me: Why is my life so busy?
How did this happen?
I remember a time when I lamented that playgroup was only once a week per playgroup. I had two going at the time and actively searched to fill the other days with playdates and other activities. Now I hope that one of us gets sick so I have an excuse to stay home.
Her: oh Heather, you totally just made me laugh. It sounds like you have a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’ itis. Whoever said that you have more time once your kid goes to school obviously sent their kid to boarding school. (and only had one child).
Me: Thanks, I needed that!
Her: maybe we should stop taking applications for new friends while we’re at it. “Sorry, I have more friends than I have time for….I could put you on a waiting list though. Becky is moving in a few months so there may be an opening then. Do you have a current TB test?”
