It's hard to chat when you're over there and I'm over here...



I've been more or less around home this past week, either taking care of my sick boys or being sick myself and I can't help noticing how little my phone rings anymore. I have a lot of really great friends and family that live within an hour or two of me, some are at home with their own children, some are working, and some juggle both work and kids, much like I do. I have found it increasingly difficult to keep in touch. Different schedules, different schools and slowly, we are like birds on different lines, wondering if we would ever be on the same line again. I have many new friends and connections and am enjoying these new relationships, but there is nothing quite like a visit with a long-time friend. Those are the people that really know you for who you are and where you came from.

I know exactly how you feel. It seems since I had children, I have lost touch with many friends. It is difficult to have time for everything!
