Why I don't have time to go to SNB groups

It would be cool, ya know? One of my all time fav things to do was 'hang out with friends' back when I was much MUCH younger. But then my list of responsibilities was like this:

Clean room, homework, um yea.

Then I had my first child at 18, and it grew to:

Care for baby, clean room, do laundry, argue with my Mom.

Then... well the kids came and I had a house and 4 children and eventually went to nursing school and any time 'hanging out with friends' dwindled down to literally twice a year.

Now the kids are grown. I bought this 2 family and fixed up the apartment upstairs to be habitable again. It looks very nice. My doctor even gave me a high five when I told him that I put in a working sink that doesn't even leak! Yessss! So, after all that, it turns out that my son and his girl are going to move in up their. See, they're having a baby. I will finally be a grandma.

So it looks like I have a shorter list again:

Play with grandchild, clean my room, work, argue with my Mom. But despite being shorter, I don't see any time in there for sitting at a coffee shop with strangers and knitting.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
