So in an effort to ease my anxiety about being socially isolated after birth (FTM with a small/long distance friend group that has no kids), I decided to put myself out there and show up at a lunch organized by the local Moms group as a pre-req to joining said group. Built up the courage to show up to a gathering, by myself, where I knew no one....and....nobody showed up. I sat at the restaurant for 30 minutes "just in case" having to fend of inquiries from the waitress and it was humiliating. THEN I went to prenatal yoga for the first time the next day thinking "dust yourself off, this is it, make new friends" and nobody stuck around afterwards to chitchat or get to know each other. Why is making new friends IRL as an adult so dang hard??
Also I spent the weekend at my parents and it was a good weekend. Then Sunday as I’m drinking my coffee my Dad decided to start in on politics, which for him is just condescension and mocking. When I proved a few of his points wrong, he stormed out and left the house without saying anything. I packed up and left before he got back (we couldn’t wait all day) so he didn’t even say goodbye to me or DS before we left.
My mom looked at me today and said "These placemats are DISGUSTING. You really need to buy new ones." Um. Why do parents think they can be super rude to their kids? You wouldn't say that to anyone else. And for the record, they're not disgusting at all! They had some crumbs on them that *gasp* can be brushed off.
