Doing something good AND getting involved!!

We moved here in March of this year and I have not made a single friend.  Yesterday was tough and depressing but I woke up with a new attitude today.

I was reading posts about women here who can't afford Christmas and who are barely making ends meet and thought to myself I am SUCH a crybaby!  We are doing fine and somehow I could be out there making a difference and helping people and probably even make some friends.  :)

However, we live in a town of about 15,000 people between Lousiville, KY and Indianapolis, IN and I've found there aren't many people online like there were when we lived near the big city.  Not to mention there are 3 radio stations (I heard lots of local stuff on the radio before) and our newspaper doesn't help much either.

So anyway to get to the point (lol) I have decided to volunteer at the local hospital doing whatever I can.  Not only will that help me to hear about what is going on in our community it will help me to meet people and make a difference.  I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulder and I can't wait to get started.
