This week I have been feeling a little sad that I have not been able to make friends like I'd like to. I mentioned before that I attended a "spouses of medical students" meeting. I am back to give a short update. The ladies I met all seem to be very nice. Some have kids. Some don't. Some work. Some don't. However one thing they all have in common is that they live near each other. So since the meeting they have had little get togethers. I was not aware of a couple of them. However, I do not live as close to them as I'd like so I feel like it's been extra difficult to continue being part of that. (I do want to note that I am aware of this only being the beginning and I may need to just give it some time).
My co-workers are really nice too. However, they all live over an hour away and they do not have free time to just "hang out".
So I have been feeling pretty lonely. I stay at work late, come home, feed the dogs, go to the gym, make dinner, grade or enter grades, shower, and then go to bed. I am not a routine person and now that we are in this routine of things it is driving me nuts. I know I need to be patient....I just needed to get this off my chest. Thanks again for listening.
