Do you think that it is sometimes too much of a time commitment to make new friends and have a family?

  • It depends on the friend. If it is a person that is willing to hang out at our house and have some down time then it's not an issue. But I don't have baby sitters to be able to meet my friends out all the time.

  • No, I met a lots of friends who have little ones or through my kids school! We have play dates at my house most often or meet for dinner I love it. I have more friends now than i have had in a LONG time! LIFE IS GREAT RIGHT NOW!

  • That's the biggest issue for me when it comes to making new friends...actually making the time to hang out and call and all that other good stuff lol...I'm a SAHM and we only have one car so if they don't want to hang out at my place (with my energetic 4 yr old and even more energetic chihuahua) or if they don't live within walking distance, well it's kind of a problem lol...My husband works 2 jobs so I wouldnt be comfortable asking him to watch Kelley while I hang out...and I've never really been a phone person...*Sigh* What do you do? lol
