Making friends when you don't fit in

Hi, I'm a 48 year old mom. I have a 22 year old son from a previous marriage, who just recently moved out. My husband and I have a 7 year old and 9 year old. I live in a small town away from the rest of my family. It gets pretty lonely without any friends and not much to do.  I'm hoping I can find some friends and support here. All the moms are about 15 years younger than me and they still can't seem to call me by my first name.

 I can certainly relate to your story. I'm soon to be 50. I have 3 adult children and 4 my dh and I adopted who are all still home so bascially we began round #2! LOL My youngest son just turned 8 so I know how you feel about having people so much younger than you. I also live in a small rural town...sort of like Mayberry where everyone knows everyone else's business.

It's nice to meet you! I'm sure you will make many friends here. BTW..I'm Vickey!

Welcome... I look forward to getting to know you. I don't have many IRL friends either. And none that I hang out with. So we have a lot in common already.

Is there any newcomer club. Everytime I move that is what I look for first.
