How are you ladies managing to have a social life, if at all? I get so desperately lonely alone at home all day so I'm always jonesing for some adult conversation in the evenings and on the weekends, but I feel like every time I do something social I end up paying for it. Last night I went to a wedding and even though I got home at 10:00 I was exhausted all day and my stash suffered because I couldn't pump from 5:00-10:00 (I EP). I was supposed to do dinner with a friend Tuesday at 6:00, but I realized I wouldn't get home in time to pump and wash bottles and then go to bed so I could get some sleep before DD wakes up (she gets up every 2 hours from 12 on). I ended up canceling most of my social plans this week because I just can't do it and not be exhausted, but I miss my friends, barely see my husband, and am desperate to get out of the house. DH is great about watching her and encouraging me to go out, but I just feel like I pay for it in the end.
How do you ladies manage?
