As I write this my husband is out with the Geek Squad that has been in town for a Microsoft event. This is the same group of people who we had over on Wednesday (all 24 of them); the same group he ate dinner with last night and the same group he's been to Orlando and Seattle with in the past few months.
I think -- no, I know -- the Geek Squad has been on more social outings with my husband than I have this year.
The Geek Squad is dating my husband.
Seriously ladies, my husband has gotten more social action than I have this year and he's the introverted one. This madness has to stop.
I live in a town that people only drive down to once or twice a year because so suburban, it's exurban. My closest friends here are my husband, his ex-wife and her sister. This town is hardly the epicenter of fun. There's no downtown, no coffee bars and no bookstores and, frankly, not a heck of a lot of culture.
I need to join a group; I need to find people like myself who want to hang out and just veg. I need friends that have really good babysitters or no kids at all so that they can go out at the flip of a cell phone.
It's these reasons why I can't wait to go down to Austin to meet up with my fellow stepmom bloggers. Women, much like myself, who are out for a relaxing, good time.
