No, I am free to make plans almost any time I like. When I was working I never had time to go out because I was working, spending time with my family, cleaning or trying to catch up on sleep. I rarely miss a party, school function or lunch date with friends.

I guess it sounds better than it is lol. I only go out a couple times a month (except for school stuff, that's at least weekly) and I do get bored with the same old routine but that's no different than getting bored with work lol I just feel like it's easier to adjust my life when I don't have to adjust around a 9-5. If I don't get my housework done I can get to it later.

No I'm more social now because I have time to do what I want. If I miss something, it's because I'm already out doing something else.

It can definitely make it more difficult but not impossible to overcome.  I have to seek out groups and people.  I organize a playgroup, am involved at Church during the week and do volunteer work.

being a SAHM allowed me to be social.  we were out and about 4-5 days a week with friends.  now that i am working part time (kids are in school) i feel like i have no life.

Nope. I have never had any issues with my social life or with confidence.

No, I go out with friends when I want to. Every day I am talking with other parents, there are school functions, play dates and so on.

Wow!  I am surprised that so many people are responding positively.  I find it VERY isolating.  With my first child I was the only one of my large group of friends who did not work.  Everyone else had full time jobs and afterwards were busy taking care of their family.  I would see friends maybe once a month if I was lucky.  With my second child i lived in a new area.  I had NO friends or family.  I joined play groups and went to story time, but it was very difficult.  Everyone i met was so different than me that I  found only very superficial friendships.  So, I check in on chat rooms like this one to pretend like  someone cares about my opinions!
